Quick access to highway if you have a car and 1 minute walk from quiet train station with multiple connections an hour for both Basel & Zurich.
You will have the whole main floor of the house, with your own kitchen, 2 living rooms and 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms sleeps 6. Suitable for those with lowered mobility, a wood fire grill in the garden.
Ground floor apartment sleeps 6. Suitable for those with lowered mobility, a wood grill in the garden. Located steps away from the train station w/ multiple connections an hour w/ both Basel & Zurich.
You will have privet access to 1 or 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with shower/bath and a hair dryer, living room/dining room with sun room/wintergarden with large sliding doors, 2 additional sofas, and little breakfast area. Large kitchen with dishwasher, Nespresso machine, Moka pot (Italian style stove-top coffee maker), breakfast bar.
I have 2 bedrooms with 2-4 beds in each bedroom, with the possibility of up to 6 guests. The first 2 guests will share a bedroom with 2 beds, additional guests with have a separate bedroom. If there are 5-6 people there is also a pull out couch that can sleep 1-2 guests in the living room if you don't want to share the bedroom. There is a 2nd large sofa in the sun room to use if someone choses to sleep on the sofa bed.
If you have reduced mobility than its good to note that I have a ramp going around the back of the house and it enters the sun room, my 80+ year old grandmother who use to live in this house needed this ramp as she walked with 2 canes. The new door there is a little narrow so I am unsure if a wheelchair is able to pass through the door into the sun room so if you are using a wheelchair than please let me know how wide it is so we can see if it will pass through or not.
