Loved our stay at Olle and Maria's - location at Gimmelwald is wonderful - so enjoyed the village. Early morning coffee on their porch was a favorite - simple pleasures!! Their home is lovely - every detail perfect; our hosts were gracious. They provide you so many ideas of things to do in the area. While there, be sure to... More

We stayed in the suite for 5 nights. Olle gave us lots of information on things to do in the area including options for rainy days which we ended up needing. The place was very clean, quite and well furnished. We had the room with the kitchenette so we made our own breakfast but purchasing supplies from the neighboring farmer... More

Staying in Gimmelwald was one of the highlights of our Switzerland trip. The quaint village was so quiet, beautiful, and something out of a storybook. Olle & Maria were very welcoming, provided us with restaurant and hiking suggestions, were there to help but not intrusive at all. Olle was so kind to let us borrow hiking shoes and sticks and...

We really enjoyed our stay in Gimmelwald. The accommodations and hospitality were excellent. The double room is spacious and comfortable. Wifi is great. The bathroom is big and shower has great water pressure with plenty of hot water. Everything was clean and neat. We didn't get the breakfast, so can't comment on the food. We stayed during November and everything... More

My wife and I stayed in the off season and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We travel in the off season because I can't stand tourists lol. Beautiful house and lovely room.

This is an overdue review, my husband and I stayed in Olle and Maria's apartment for 4 nights in September and had a fantastic time. The apartment is lovely, with a nicely equipped kitchen, and very comfortable bed. Next door is a home with an honor's system refrigerator on their porch where they sell cheese, sausage, eggs and milk. Murren,... More

“I would highly recommend the apartment if you can get it. I didn't stay there, but if it was anything like the double room in their home, I'm sure its great, and a much better deal than staying in the home.”

“Save money by renting the larger room with a kitchen, so that you can prepare your own meals. We ate out only twice during our 3 day stay, and although the food was amazing, it was expensive.”
  • Our room, with a roll away bed added. Bed and Linens were top quality.
  • Table in our room. We saved a fortune by eating here most meals.
