Adi has this smooth re-assuring smile that kind of relaxes his guests. He is also a young family man who has achieved so much in life and so is peaceful with himself and hence finds it very easy to radiate peace all around. The property itself is classy and neat. This property is roughly 5 minutes walk to the train station getting you to the centre of Zurich. There is also a high level of privacy enjoyed. One of the things I found impressive is the willingness of Adi to make his guest comfortable; for example I requested for an electric iron and I got it the same day with ironing board, I requested for a microwave to warm my food and Adi made it happen. I requested for a second pillow and it was provided before dusk. I want to personally say a big thank you to Adi for opening his house to me. Best regards, Michael Atkin Faleye
Alles super einfach gewesen, hinsichtlich check-in etc. Wir haben die beiden nur ganz kurz gesehen, da wir zu einer Hochzeit eingeladen waren und entsprechende den ganzen Tag unterwegs, aber die zwei scheinen sehr nett zu sein und haben und gebeten, uns jederzeit zu melden, falls wir noch etwas bräuchten etc.
We (a couple) have stayed in Adi and Martina's place for 7 days. First of all, the description and photos of this listing are correct. The studio has its own entrance (near a quiet garage door), a private bathroom/WC and a fast Wi-Fi connection. We parked our car right in front of the studio. There was a nice small table with two chairs to sit outside. As common in that area, the house is located in 3 meters from a road with a pedestrian zone, so it feels comfortable and quiet most of the time. Some noise was from a faster road located further, but not often and not extreme level, so felt quite comfortable too. The whole village felt more like a well-maintained park, so we really enjoyed walking around. On a car, we could access Zurich, Konstanz - all within an hour even by common slow roads (Winterthur city is closer). There're shops and restaurants in the village, so you can get basic stuff even by foot. Getting back to the studio. Overall, it felt very private and quiet, as Adi and Martina spent most of their time either at work or in the main part of the house, which is located a level higher (this is a hilly region). They've been open for communication too, but only when we were up to it. As a result, we felt private and the same time had our questions resolved and had once a great evening discussing all the interesting things with Adi. Interior of the studio is of a good quality and design. Surprisingly it resembled us Thailand style, which we like a lot. There's one more door near the bathroom - it is closed from that side. Firstly we found it strange but then had no issues with it, just used that corner as a convenient place for our suitcase and bags. Note, near this door a switcher for the window shutters is placed - it very conveniently gives you additional hours of sleep in the dark and quietness! The only issue that really troubled us has happened one evening/night during our stay and this is the common problem we've got into everywhere in Switzerland. This is a strong - at least for our noses - smell of manure (fertilizer) from farms or fields. If you happen to be at home when the smell comes and if it's an issue for you too, then close the window and the door and ask Adi to switch on house ventilation system. Other than that you can leave the area for several hours. As I said, from our experience this was one time per 7 days. Overall, we think this was a great place to stay in Switzerland. Well-done and maintained studio, beautiful location and communication with Adi is a great memory we're taking with us.
Herzlicher Empfang am Anreisetag. Die Unterkunft ist eine kleine abgeschlossen Einliegerwohnung mit Wohlfühlcharakter und Privatsphäre. Adi habe ich als sehr hilfsbereiten Gastgeber kennen gelernt, der jederzeit für Fragen erreichbar war. Die Lage ist ländlich ruhig und doch ist man innerhalb von 20 min. mit dem Auto in Zürich. Restaurants sind fußläufig in der Nähe. Ich kann das Studio uneingeschränkt empfehlen und würde jederzeit gerne wieder bei Adi wohnen.
