“Fantastic Location, Faboulous Views”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Lauterbrunnen is a fantastic place to base yourself, the station, only about a 10 minute stroll away is a hub for trains back to Interlaken, up the mountain to Wengen and the Jungfraujoch and the cable car to Murren and the Schilthorn. There is plenty to see and do here.

Chalet Shimmin, is in a brilliant location with fabulous views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley with it's waterfalls and snow capped peaks. The accommodation is second to none and seemed more like a home from home rather than a soulless holiday let, it's really comfortable and I loved the retro postcards and posters. I don't think the photos to the apartment justice and it seems a much bigger space.

Can't wait to go back.

“Amazing Vacation Spot”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

As a family that travels a lot with two toddlers we've stayed in a lot of holiday apartments, instead of hotels, over the past couple of years for convenience. This one was hands-down our favorite one so far. We chose this apartment at the recommendation of another family who raved about it and they did not steer us wrong. The apartment was impeccably clean and had a very homey and comfortable feel. The correspondence with the owners before arrival was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was very well stocked - the best we've had so far. We LOVED the location - Lauterbrunnen is one of our favorite places we've ever been. We enjoyed walking around the valley and taking the various cable cars/funiculars/gondolas/trains up into the mountains for some spectacular hikes and views. The apartment was very quiet and we never heard noise from the neighbors. There is a nice campground a short walk away that was super convenient for picking up small amounts of grocery items as well as take away food for the nights we didn't feel like cooking or eating out. The only problem with our stay was that it was just too short (and we were there for over a week!). We definitely hope to return someday soon.

“Fabulous apartment, stunning location - highly recommend”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We spent a week here with our two children (6&4yo) and had a fabulous time, the apartment was first class, comfortable, clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for self catering.
The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning and the location is perfect - close to the bus stop which connects with the train or just a short river walk into the town. There is a lovely restaurant and shop only a few mins walk away in the campsite. Our kids had plenty to do, there is a park a few minutes walk away and a swimming pool in the centre of Lauterbrunnen which also has a trampoline, table tennis and table football. You can take the cable car up one side of the valley or mountain train up the other side to Wengen and with Interlaken only about 15mins away on the train we where never short of things to do.
I would highly recommend this apartment and the area as a holiday destination.
