Our stay here was nothing short of amazing. From the view of the Matterhorn in the back yard, to the cleanliness and comfort of the home, we couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Stuart and Lesley made it so easy to get settled in by meeting us at the train station when we arrived and helping us get all of our luggage to the house. Their hospitality was outstanding! The home itself is well stocked with everything needed to enjoy vacation. We ended up cooking at the home quite a bit and the kitchen had everything we were looking for. It was wonderful having the ability to do laundry as well. Stuart helped us book a paragliding tour, which was incredible! In the middle of our stay, the house was cleaned, linens refreshed, and toiletries resupplied. I cannot say enough good things about staying at this Chalet. The private cable car was perfect, the views couldn't be beat and the town of Zermatt itself is a breathtaking, beautiful place to visit. We are so glad we chose Zermatt and especially glad we chose Zermatt Apartment rentals for our stay. Lesley and Stuart were so helpful and were great at communicating with us, even months before our trip to make sure our holiday would be wonderful, and it truly was! If you are thinking of staying here, book it fast before someone else does! I give it my highest possible recommendation for anyone looking to rent a family sized home in Zermatt!
