Large family home with a big fenced garden. Quiet location in a small village, half an hour from the heart of Zurich by car or train. Big reception area. The house sleeps 10 people. 1 master bedroom and 4 double bedrooms. 2 baths and 1 guest toilet.

The space

Experience the way of life in a large family home in the countryside near Zurich. Land is very scarce and large homes with spacious gardens are hard to come by.

Guest access

This house has always been home to a large family. You have access to everything except fine china, silverware and crystal which aren't dishwasher safe. The house and I want you to enjoy it as much as we did and fill it with happiness. That's what it was built for.

Interaction with guests

You will rent the whole house. That means that I will be gone as soon as you don't need me anymore. However, I love people and I love to entertain. If you wish for more interaction with the host, please let me know and it can be arranged. You will be able to reach me during your whole stay.

Excellent House in Aarau Region just 25-30 Km near Zurich. Highway is accessible within 5 mins of Drive. The house is huge with garden equipped with all amenities. Dining and Living Room is huge enough for 10-12 person. The kitchen is well equipped and nice. They have garage in basement which is remotely controlled. Parking is excellent one car in garage and one outside the garage. Worth every penny

This home was lovely and extremely clean. The pictures on the site are exactly what the home looks like. It's bright and well furnished. There is a great porch on the side of the home with a large table and several chairs. The host could not have been more helpful and caring. The yard is beautiful with lovely roses to enjoy. If we return to Switzerland in the future, we will certainly rent the same home. We had many guests and yet each of us had our own privacy. The house is quite large and yet has a very "homey" feel about it.

It's really a great house for a big family like mine. We spent 3 nights here. The village is very quiet and beautiful. There is a big Garden, children can roll on the grass. What's the most important, Jakob is so kind and helpful. Thanks again.

Highly recommended.. everything is great from the host to the little details in the house We enjoyed it very much .. my big mistake was that it took it for short stay .. The pictures and the wording in airbnb do not describe the house right .. I suggest better wording and pictures

This was a perfect house for family. It was stocked with all the kitchen, bath and household items you could need! I would definitely rent from Jakob again. He is an excellent host.

This is a wonderful base from which to explore Switzerland, particularly for families or a group of six or more people. There is so much space inside and outside! You will need a hire car. Opthalmingen is a lovely friendly village with 2 supermarkets and a pub with good meals within walking distance of the house. The host is very helpful.

This place is located in the hilly and quiet surrounding. Bus stop and train station are 250 and 1100 m. away. There is a lot of space in living and dining room. It is very nice to sit around the table and have dinner with my family while we were traveling to new places. We have everything we need in this house like staying at home. This trip is one of our most impressive memories.

Dear guest
The house you're interested in has always been home to a large family. It has been built on grounds which have been in the family much longer than anyone of us can remember. When my parents died I couldn't bring myself to sell it. Instead I renovated it thoroughly.
I live abroad at least half of the year. It took me some time to realize that what the house and I really wanted is to have you enjoy it as much as we did. By now you will have guessed, that real estate is one of my hobbies. This may sound silly but I enjoy nothing more than taking care of houses and gardens and people. I find that very meaningful.
Since it's the whole house you will rent, our interations will probably be limited. However, if you wish for more interaction and I am available, I will be glad to dicuss this with you and help you to organize your family event.
My life motto is 'live and let live´.
