We stayed in the apartment in the first week of December in 2007... it is THE best place we have ever stayed. The views are breathtaking, and seemed to get more breathtaking by the day. Every morning that I woke up I would jump straight out of bed and open up the shutters to get a glimpse of the view.
We wanted for nothing, everything was there and more. The apartment was clean, spotless and looked after. The real fire was comforting and serene after a day out skiing and the cold. And the hot tub was amazing!
We also had lots and lots of snow, it didn't stop snowing for a good few days and was beautiful to watch the heavy snow through the panoramic windows whilst warming our toes in front of the fire.
I cannot wait to go back to this apartment... and we most definitely will!
The chalet owners are really friendly and helpful too.
We have had great VRBO experiences every time but this rental just blew us away! The pictures posted won us over and they are indeed very accurate. We stayed in the beautiful apartment A which was fully and beautifully appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. It has every amenity. Engleberg is charming. It's citizens are friendly and helpful as well as patient with English speaking tourists. Skiing was challenging but spectacular but Titlis has plenty of non-skiiing activities too-sledging (sledding and tobogganing), hiking, cross country skiing, the glacial cave and the suspension bridge. Even lunch up on the mountain can be exhilarating. Try the Igloo Bar or the restaurant at Joch Pass for a fun vibe. The hike (and it is a hike) from town to Alphaven and then up the stairs to the apartment is for those who can handle physical exertion (or who want to get in shape!). But you can stop to rest and take in the view or hop in the Gin Bar at the Terrace Hotel for a libation and sometimes live music. Or simply stay put at Alphaven! It is that nice or an accommodation-you really won't want to leave. The owners were fantastic to work with and Alphaven is easily accessible by train and taxi.
AlpHaven in THE best place in Engelberg!! This was the highlight of our honeymoon, and having traveled internationally, the highlight of any trip we have ever taken. The house and views were better than we could have ever hoped for, and Candy was so hospitable and helpful. We couldn't have felt more at home
The house couldn't have been more thoughtfully stocked between the amenities, binder of info, firewood, comfy bed/linens, etc..I can't sing its praises enough. The views speak for themselves, in which pictures don't do it justice! We agree with your description of AlpHaven having the most beautiful views of Engleberg day and night.
Since we left, I can't stop thinking about coming back! We will be getting to work on our next trip back soon :)
We will never forget our first trip (hopefully of many) to Engleberg, especially thanks to AlpHaven.
We had a great time our son and daughter loved the apartment, WiFi access and indeed the hot tub! The vicinity of the apartment gave a lovely experience of being connected to the village from witnessing the sun rise break over the mountains onto the village, being able to hear the Monastry bells while having a great viewpoint including seeing the cable cars start up. Access to Lucerne via train was easy and also would highly recommend a trip to Mt Titlis - A lovely experience!
We can't say enough good things about our stay at Alphaven. Though the weather didn't really cooperate, it didn't matter. Spending time relaxing, enjoying the view, the hot tub and the surreal quiet was everything we hoped for. Our hosts were welcoming and eager to help. We began talking about our next visit before we even left!!
Engelberg itself is a treasure. We rented bikes one day and rode out 20km or so before hopping a lift up the mountain to hike. Before we knew it, we were alone in unspoilt mountain terrain - dramatic scenery as far as we could see. So much to enjoy for outdoor enthusiasts - if you can tear yourself away from the apartment...
We have rented many apartments in the Alps over the years but Alphaven Apartment A is our favourite by a large margin. The facilities in the apartment and the views from the bedroom and the open plan lounge, dining area & kitchen are second to none. Engelberg is an excellent area for summer hiking and the golf course is highly recommended.
