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.
House rules- Use showers reasonably as supply of hot water has to last for all. -
- Do not smoke in the house.

- 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.

We spent 3 days of guests Reinhard and Liza. The apartment was basic but very clean and they had plenty of atmosphere. The friendliness of Liza and Reinhard is second to none, and we enjoyed the days in Zurich very much. The common evening with about 10 people was wonderful. We are happy to come back!
Wir waren 3 Tage Gäste von Reinhard und Liza. Die Wohnung war einfach, aber sehr sauber und sie hatte viel Atmosphäre. Die Freundlichkeit von Liza und reinhard ist unübertroffen, und wir haben die Tage in Zürich sehr genossen. Der gemeinsame Abend mit ca. 10 Personen war wunderbar. Gerne kommen wir wieder!
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!
Rating 3 out of 5 stars.
Central position and good to go down too late to grab a bite or take a ride on rambla.terrazza shared but we had problemi.grande spaziosa.in October and died of heat !! The apartment quite spartan .... we expected a little more well tended .... but they arrange anyway (we are a young couple!)
Upon our arrival we had no internet but we managed to have the wifi neighbors.
I think missing a tv least x the company or downtime or relaxation! Apart from that we still like getting our vacation!
valutazione 3 stelle su 5.
Posizione centralissima e ottima per poter scendere anche tardi a mangiare un boccone o a fare un giro sulla rambla.terrazza condivisa ma non abbiamo avuto problemi.grande e spaziosa.in ottobre si moriva di caldo!! L'appartamento abbastanza spartano....ce lo aspettavamo un po piu grande e curato....ma ci si arrangia comunque (noi siamo una coppia giovane!)
Al nostro arrivo non avevamo internet ma siamo riusciti ad avere il wifi dei vicini .
manca secondo me una tv almeno x la compagnia o i tempi morti o di relax! A parte cio abbiamo comunque aprezzato la nostra vacanza!
View from rooftop great!
Apartment exactly as description, but it comes to the outdoors.
Bedding was poor.
Uitzicht vanaf dakterras geweldig!
Appartement precies volgens omschrijving, maar het gaat om het buitenleven.
Beddengoed liet te wensen over.
We were very lucky to meet Reinhard
The appartment was dirty and there was no WiFi. The only positive thng about the apartment was the location.
Staying in Barcelona was very nice, the apartment is centrally located and easy to get super good to the metro and restaurants. However, you notice that the apartment is already older and has not been cleaned properly for some time. Furthermore was pretty stupid, that the toilet flush was broken. But for the price it was okay and just for the time it worth going there for a holiday.
Der Aufenthalt in Barcelona war sehr schön die Wohnung liegt zentral und man kommt super gut zur Metro und Restaurants. Allerdings merkt man, dass die Wohnung schon älter ist und schon länger nicht mehr richtig sauber gemacht wurde. Des weiteren war ziemlich doof, dass die Klospülung kaputt war. Aber für den Preis war es ganz okay und allein für die lange lohnt es sich dort Urlaub zu machen.
