If i ever visit Switzerland again, I will spend all my days here. The place is beautiful beyond words. The Chalet is like a fairy tale...and the host is very concerned and cooperative. Could not have asked for more...10/10!
The best thing about the chalet is its location. From its living room, as also the sit-out, you can see a part of Brienz lake and the green mountains. The lake shore is just two minutes walk away and it is picture perfect. Therefore, if you prefer natural beauty to a place in the city, this chalet is a right choice.
There are half hourly buses to Interlaken - one from a bus stop about 300 meters away and the other from a bus stop a little farther, about 600-700 meters away. With the passes provided by Juliet, the bus ride is free. You can, of course, call a taxi.
Wifi works well. There were cycles available for use.
The two bed rooms and bath rooms are small in size. The water heater has a capacity for 40 minutes of running hot water. For more water, one needs to manually start the heater and the water heats in an hour and a half.
I recently found this apartment on Trip Advisor and after reading the reviews booked for Xmas. The apartment was exactly as described and all the relevant information you would wish to know was supplied by Juliet, the owner of the apartment. The local transport to the train town/train station was free. We also walked to the train station one day along the lake. It only took about 35/40 mins and was a lovely walk.
I would definitely recommend this accommodation.
The only thing that would have topped it off for me would have been a little Christmas tree with lights in the corner of the apartment when we arrived as it was Christmas and would have felt like home:)
The location and views from this property cannot be faulted, five minutes drive from Interlaken the property offers convenience with peace and tranquility. The view over the lake is lovely and constantly changing, picture perfect! Directions provided were excellent and instructions easy to follow, no problems with contact, owner very helpful. We were disappointed however with the interior of the property. There is a problem with the bathroom upstairs which gives off a very bad sewage smell, this has been mentioned in the visitor book by other people. Little problems that could easily be solved with not a great deal of expenditure would improve this property greatly. For example, the curtains are so thin and barely fit the windows that they let huge amounts of light in, the same problem with the blind on the door in the upstairs bedroom which is white and totally pointless if its intention is to keep light out! something over the downstairs door would be nice for additional privacy. We stayed with our two daughters who are in their twenties I don't think it would be easy with six adults. We had to use outdoor furniture inside for seating.
