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.-.)

House rules- Use showers reasonably as supply of hot water has to last for all. -

I feld like home, all is clean, people are nice. I extended for one week.
Communication with Reinhard went smoothly, the apartment was clean when we arrived and the location and view are absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed our stay here.
Was good. Simple Atico in a central location. Nice and competent landlord, nice neighbors. Highly recommended.
War gut. Einfaches Atico in zentraler Lage. Netter und kompetenter Vermieter, nette Nachbarn. Zu empfehlen.
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.
Wonderful, quiet and beautifully situated. Nice People. We were pleased with the stay in Maur. Just a shame that it rained.
Herrlich, ruhig und schön gelegen. Nette Menschen. Wir waren zufrieden mit dem Aufenthalt in Maur. Schade nur, das es geregnet hat.
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.
