“Wonderful Chalet (15 Dec to 20 Dec 2016)”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Nice, comfortable and well equipped apartment. Keep you warm during Winter. Near bus stop bus 141. Although we did not get to meet Heather but Barbara her neighbor is very nice and friendly to come over and explain to us about the Chalet. Comfortable to sleep for 5 person, all is working very well. Great views of the valley walls, waterfalls, and some mountain tops, easy access to Jungfraujoch

“Nice View”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for 4 nights. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. A good size for a family of 4. The view from the kitchen window is spectacular. Everything was in working order. The only thing that disappointed was the allotment of 1 towel per person. It was difficult at times. My towel got dirty and I had to stay up late and get up during the night so that I could have a clean towel for my morning shower. The bathtub has fairly high sides and it was difficult to get in/out of without slipping.
The beds were extremely comfortable and we slept great.

As we walked through the door we instantly knew that we had made the right choice when booking Chalet Shimmin. The apartment was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The view from the balcony is stunning and the chalet is in a fabulous location; close to the Staubbach Falls, an easy walk into Lauterbrunnen with a Coop, shops, restaurants, cafes, train and cable car station.
Heather, the owner made the booking process quick and simple, responding promptly to our request and confirming payment. She provided easy to follow directions to the chalet and its designated parking space. Heather also went out of her way to contact and book a local guide to climb the Via Ferrata in Murren with my husband and teenage children (a highlight of the trip).

Heather, the owner, was an excellent host. Directions how to get to the chalet were very clear, and everything we needed for our stay was available. We felt at home very quickly in the chalet. The house is very well equipped, clean and nicely decorated. The location in Lauterbrunnen is superb! Walking distance from the ski-bus and close-by the most beautiful sites in Switzerland. We love the area, there is so much to see, do and explore! We will have to come back.
