A wonderful house in the wonderful Alps with access to Zurich. This is really one of those airbnbs of ye'olden days when the platform was still young. You have a sense of getting an experience that is just not accessible on the traditional commercial market. Ute is a host who isn't out to make a fast dime on the airbnb craze, but instead one of the most considerate hosts I've had to date. The house is old but in a beautiful condition. Everything is working as it should be and well taken care of. You can tell that the people who've been living there really liked the place and that makes it special. The garde is wonderful and has something for kids to discover in every corner. The kitchen is perfectly equipped has everything you want and more, regarding supplies and utensils. We even had some bread, fruit and chocolate when we checked in. The bathroom is roomy with a window and the water pressure is high. The area is so safe, you don't need to lock the doors. The mountains are gorgeous and over hikes for all skill levels. There is a small supermarket nearby which caters everything you need. Expect to hear nothing but cowbells during the night. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely weekend in this beautiful old swiss style house. Everything was really well organized. We didn't meet Ute, however, she prepared everything really well with excellent communication, which made our stay a great experience. I would recommend this house easily to anybody.

Ute was very responsive and forthcoming host. Upon our arrival we got a warm welcome from Ute's mom and really enjoyed the surprise breakfast goodies left for us in the kitchen. The house offers lots of room(s), a very well equipped kitchen with a big fridge and lots of books and games for rainy days. We had a great time there, it's the perfect place to just hang out, go for walks and enjoy nature.

This is a very cute house and you can find everything such as wifi, heating system etc. in it. and the transportation is very convenient. I am sure that everyone will love it if they live.

We had a fantastic time. The house has real charm and offers lots of different spaces (inside the house as well as in the garden). It is ideal for larger groups. Ute made us feel very welcome and is a real pleasure to deal with. Regarding location, the Vorderthal and the adjacent Innerthal are lesser known jewels of the Swiss countryside and offer gorgeous hikes. I can highly recommend a visit.

Ute User ProfileUte is a superhost.

From city to country and vice versa. I live and work in Zurich with my two children for the major part of the week and I also spend a considerable part of my time in our house in Vorderthal. All the years I could not do without one or the other.

I'm happy our house is being used and alive as a place to retreat, relax and exercise. It is perfect for families, with or without children and it is also suitable for any kind of work/art project. I am an open-minded and uncomplicated person.
