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.-.)

- Do not smoke in the house.

Just great. Very nice hostess and host. Attentive and calm. Correct room for stay conveniently close from Zurich. Recommended.
Einfach toll. Sehr nette Gastgeberin und Gastgeber. Aufmerksam und ruhig. Richtiges Zimmer fürs Übernachten günstig in der Nähe vom Zürich. Empfehlenswert.
We spent two days in a very nice, cozy and the hosts extremely nice and interesting!
Abbiamo passato due giorni in una casa molto bella, accogliente e con dei padroni di casa estremamente simpatici ed interessanti !
We had it good here. I realize that this property is not for everyone to play. Eg. have no desire to clean up, but accept as it is !. But do it just for the sense and move the seat as road you do not want. We stirred up a bit by using waxine lightly. That made the Christmas extraordinarily charming and warm! Reinhard and his wife are generous, generous, forthcoming. And the setting right on the lake is beautiful. train - and bus service excellent. Overall, we had it right here!
Wij hadden het goed hier. ik realiseer me dat dit verblijf niet voor iedereen is weggelegd. Bv. heb geen wens om op te ruimen, maar accepteer zoals het is!. Maar maak het gewoon naar de zin en zet even die stoel weg die je niet wilt. We stookten een beetje bij mbv waxine lichtjes. Dat maakte de kerstdagen buitengewoon sfeervol en lekker warm! Reinhard en zijn vrouw zijn gul en ruimhartig, toeschietelijk. En de omgeving direct aan het meer is prachtig. trein - en busverbinding uitstekend. Kortom, we hadden het goed hier!
Quaint in Maur.
Cosy little house, beautifully situated and there was everything you could need for a small stay.
Thank you for the hospitality!
Urig in Maur.
Gemütliches kleines Häuschen, schön gelegen und alles da was man so braucht für einen kleinen Aufenthalt.
Danke für die Gastfreundschaft!
I feld like home, all is clean, people are nice. I extended for one week.
This accommodation is exactly as described. No luxury One should expect, but it's all there, what you need. And the property manager Reinhard is great.
Diese Unterkunft ist genau so wie beschrieben. Man darf sich keinen Luxus erwarten, aber es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Und der Unterkunftgeber Reinhard ist spitze.
Reinhard and Elisangela were wonderful hosts and I spent a nice time in and with them. Exciting and humorous conversations with them, nestled in a rustic + special house in a beautiful setting on the lake, have made my stay in very informal atmosphere for a lasting memory.
Very happy again ... :-))
Reinhard und Elisangela waren wundervolle Gastgeber und ich habe eine schöne Zeit bei und mit ihnen verbracht. Spannende und humorvolle Gespräche mit ihnen, eingebettet in einem urchigen + speziellen Haus in einer wunderschönen Umgebung am See, haben meinen Aufenthalt in sehr familiärer Atmosphäre zu einer bleibenden Erinnerung gemacht.
Sehr gerne wieder einmal... :-))
an unusual house with very direct contact with the landlord who is always approachable. The old wooden house is everything you need and you always get a coffee or tea or a friendly chat. It is not recommended to be movement restricted. Otherwise beautiful surroundings by the lake with Alpine views. Highly recommended for people who just need simple facilities.
ein ungewöhnliches Haus mit sehr direktem Kontakt zum Vermieter, der immer ansprechbar ist. In dem alten Holzhaus ist alles, was man braucht und man kriegt auch immer einen Kaffee oder Tee oder einen netten Plausch. Es empfiehlt sich nicht bewegungseingeschränkt zu sein. Ansonsten herrliche Umgebung am See mit Alpenblick. Zu empfehlen für Menschen, denen einfachste Austattung genügt.
Very nice people and the room is spacious and cozy. Can I recommend.
Sehr nette Leute und das Zimmer ist geräumig und gemütlich. Kann ich weiterempfehlen.
