In Maur near Zürich we have a small old house with two rooms. This house needs to be rebuilt very soon. This 120 year old house is very basic and please note that it is worn out. On the ground floor it has a small kitchen and upstairs there is a toilet and a shower.
Before booking we would like if you could introduce yourself quickley, so that we can imagine to what kind of persons we are going to rent this little house, Please do only write words, If you write numbers, mailadresses, websites, then Wimdu will not deliver the message, or shorten it.
No smoking inside. Because we never smoke, we prefer guest who do not even know what tobacco is. Some people went for a walk well away from the house whenever they had to smoke, and that was ok for us.
Some people have said that the house is smelling and that is is not healthy to live there. So the time is really coming that the house has to be rebuilt. But other people did not have this impression.
Since all the cats in the neighbouhood do only have psychologic tasks it can happen that we meet a mouse in the kitchen.
The house is heated with electric heaters and if it is very cold outside then it will not be very warm inside. Therefore it may be advisable not to book to early in winter and watch the weather conditions first.
The house is not everybodys style, but many artists and creative people have stayed here and felt quite well.
We think this little hous is ok until max 4 persons. A dog we count like an extra person.
Our guest often do not find the forks and knives. They are in the drawer of the table in the room.
Maur is still a farming village, 35 minutes by tram and bus from the main train station of Zurich (12km east, at a lake opposite of Uster)
- pretty village with 4 restaurants and small castle of XII century
- 5 minute walk through the fields to the lake, or 4 hours around it
- free Internet access at PC in room and open wireless (if it works)
- bicycles have to be repaired first
Do only come if you have made a reservation!
Do not come with an expensive car. It does not suit with the house.
How to get there by public transport:
- a ticket (enter 8124 at machine) costs Fr.8.20 (valid 2 hours),
or an pass for 24 hours (Zones 10, 21,30) costs Fr.16.40
(Train rides to the airport are included in those tickets. If you buy a card with 6 tickets on it, you can buy half fare if you are not over 25 years old. A monthly all zones pass valid after 9am, personal or transferable, costs about SFr.120.-.)
- tram number 3 to Klusplatz (allow 20 minutes to get there)
- then bus 747, leaves at about 19 and 49 past every hour, last bus at 36 minutes past midnight, 20 min. ride via Witikon, Binz, Ebmatingen to Maur Dorf (at the foot of the hill).
From the Airport Tram 12 to Stettbach and then bus 743 to Maur Dorf. This works until about 8pm. Later Stettbach to Fällanden then bus to Pfaffhausen then bus 747 to Maur Dorf. Or right away but more expensive from the Airport train to Zurich main station, tram 3 to Klusplatz (final stop), bus 747 to Maur Dorf.
- Do not smoke in the house.

You will find clean towels and sheets, but they are not ironed.
- The fee of CHF 30 for fresh linnen you have to pay separately at the end of your stay. If you leave the house very clean then we will not insist on this payment.
Please do not feed the cats and do also not give them any milk! They get enough to eat in their homes and our neighbours are very sad when their cats do not come home anymore.

Representing I can say that my visitors have felt very comfortable there. You have been advised of the very nice neighbor Lucia and her husband what the hosts before his trip organized hatte.Ansonsten my two were enthusiastic about the area and were able to sleep very well in the beautiful room at night.
Overall it was a very good stay for you and the next time they would like to stay there again ....!
Stellvertretend kann ich sagen: meine Besucher haben sich dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Sie sind sehr nett von der Nachbarin Lucia und deren Mann beraten worden, was der Gastgeber vor seiner Reise organisiert hatte.Ansonsten waren meine Beiden begeistert von der Gegend, und konnten Nachts sehr gut in dem schönen Zimmer schlafen.
Insgesamt war es ein sehr guter Aufenthalt für sie und das nächste Mal:würden sie gerne wieder dort übernachten....!
A very very nice host.
Sorry, we do not so often seen us. However, was the
first impression already very positive and it has been very good
can deny, regarding keys etc.
I can only recommend. The room is also very nice and clean
and the bed very comfortable.
Ein sehr sehr netter Gastgeber.
Leider haben wir uns nicht so oft gesehen. Jedoch war der
erste Eindruck bereits sehr positiv und man hat sich ganz gut
absprechen können, bezüglich Schlüsselübergabe usw.
Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. Das Zimmer ist auch sehr schön und sauber
und das Bett sehr bequem.
Wonderful people, really kind, sweet and flexible.
Wonderful small & quiet village
Wonderful house, very old and rustic.
Reinhard and Elisangela two people are very hospitable and helpful. The house is situated near the lake reached in five minutes piedi.Ben served by public transport to reach Zurich. Very pleasant stay
Reinhard ed Elisangela sono due persone molto ospitali e disponibili. La casa è situata vicino al lago raggiungibile in cinque minuti a piedi.Ben servita con mezzi pubblici per raggiungere Zurigo. Soggiorno molto piacevole
Reinhard was a pleasant host and interlocutor. Likes to go back down there when I am near Zurich longer.
Reinhard war ein angenehmer Gastgeber und Gesprächspartner. Gern geht wieder dort hin, wenn ich länger in der Nähe von Zürich bin.
We liked it very much and we would like to come back any time :-)
All very nice and easy (use of kitchen, bathroom & Internet up to nightly chat) - many thanks Reinhard and Elisangela!
Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen und wir würden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen :-)
Alles sehr nett und unkompliziert (Küchennutzung, Badezimmer & Internet bis zu abendlichem Plaudern) - vielen lieben Dank Reinhard und Elisangela!
Sympathetic Gastgeber.So was rustic as its Einrichtung.Ein genuine original eben.Aber as in the description, is a rustic dwelling, not for everyone. Too bad that was never aired because vollstehen.Das house all windows located on the village and for a village, there's a pretty good Infrastruktur.Die Switzerland but is not for the German recipients of Stütze.Zusammenfassend: For people who not only hotel are accustomed to quite times so empfehlenswert.Hat a youth hostel campsite-80s touch.
Sympathischer Gastgeber.So rustikal wie seine Einrichtung.Ein echtes Original eben.Aber wie schon in der Beschreibung stand,ist eine rustikale Behausung, nicht jedermans Sache. Schade das nie gelüftet wurde weil alle Fenster vollstehen.Das Haus liegt auf dem Dorf und für ein Dorf gibts eine recht gute Infrastruktur.Die Schweiz ist aber nichts für deutsche Empfänger von Stütze.Zusammenfassend: Für Leute die nicht nur Hotel gewöhnt sind, durchaus mal empfehlenswert.Hat so einen Jugendherberg-Campingplatz-80er Jahrehauch.
Reinhard and Elisangela are good people. We loved the family atmosphere in the house liked it. We can only recommend the hotel!
All the best!
Eva and Christoph
Reinhard und Elisangela sind liebe Leute. Uns hat die familiäre Atmosphäre im Haus gut gefallen. Wir können die Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen!
Ganz liebe Grüße!

It was an unforgettable experience, everything was wonderful and magical. We felt at home. Reinhard is a great person surrounded by great people.
Fue una experiencia inolvidable, todo fue maravilloso y mágico. Nos sentimos como en casa. Reinhard es una gran persona rodeada de grandes personas.
I had a nice stay in Maur, a small but beautiful village on the Greifensee. Reinhard and his wife are friendly, warm people. The house is old and be interesting. The room I had was spacious, with beautiful old wooden beams and beautiful views. I felt right at home and would go again.
Ik had een fijn verblijf in Maur, een klein maar mooigelegen dorpje aan de Greifensee. Reinhard en zijn vrouw zijn gezellige, hartelijke mensen. Het huis is oud en interssant. De kamer die ik had was royaal, met prachtige oude houten balken en met mooi uitzicht. Ik voelde me direct thuis en zou zo weer gaan.
