Der Wohnraum

This fully equipped studio apartment is in the basement of a villa located just outside Geneva. Don’t let the word basement fool you: it is well lit, open and airy! It is easily accessible by public transport to enjoy what the city has to offer, yet in an idyllic setting where you’ll hear birdsong instead of traffic noises.
It is just 3 km from Carouge and 5 km from Geneva city center (10/25 minutes by public transit). The nearest bus stop is only 300 m away. Buses run frequently on weekdays (up to 4 an hour), but less frequently on weekends and late evening. We can also make bicycles available: much quicker than public transport or even driving for the city.
The studio comfortably sleeps 2 with a wide double bed, includes a dining room set and a sitting area with couch and easy chair. Besides its own kitchenette and bathroom in a separate area, there is a storage closet as well as access to the washer/dryer. Hi-speed internet (wifi) is available. It has its own independent entry from the outside.
We love living here because it is also a great departure point for bike rides in the countryside, an expedition up the Salève by cable car, or a quick (because we avoid city traffic!) sight-seeing tour to Chamonix, Annecy, Evian etc. Tennis courts are also just minutes away on foot.
For more adventurous folks there is rock-climbing, descent mountain biking and paragliding on the Salève. We just watch the latter as they float over the neighborhood to land in a field, a few 100 meters from the house (you will have access to one of the 3 terraces).

Every thing was fine, Michael was absent but he left all the instructions in a clear way. We could not meet as when he came I was out, my husband met him and there were no problems.

Staying at Michael's has been one of my best AirBnB experiences thus far. Michael and his wife go above and beyond to make you feel at home. We were a very late booking, as some of our travel plans had changed last minute, but Michael easily accommodated us on short notice and made us feel welcomed when we arrived. The neighborhood is very tranquil and pretty, and the apartment itself is tucked away in a leafy nook off of a cul-de-sac. The apartment is wonderful and comfortable and nicely decorated with all the advertized amenities. They even left us some breakfast items in the true bed and breakfast spirit. Although we arrived a bit later than intended, we were able to chat with Michael and his wife briefly before they went out for their own dinner plans. They were so friendly and curious about our trip. My mother, who is 77, was especially charmed, and fell in love with the apartment right away. We were really sad that we were only able to spend one night there before we left Switzerland. They recommended an excellent restaurant nearby the apartment, which made for a perfect and relaxing evening after a long drive. The location is great, even if it's not in the heart of Geneva. We had a car, but there were public transit stops nearby, so it's very convenient. And it's still close enough to the airport that we had no trouble getting there. We were able to say goodbye to Michael and his wife the next morning before heading to the airport. Again, they treated us so well, and were so kind in helping us load up on the way out. We wished we could have stayed longer to chat more and learn more about them. It was as if we were leaving old friends, even though we had just barely met them. That kind of warmth is rare and was greatly appreciated. This is a truly wonderful and welcoming place, and Michael and his wife are exceptional hosts. I highly recommend you stay with them if you go to Geneva.

My partner and I stayed with Michael when we passed through Geneva for some sightseeing and a job interview. The house is not in the centre of town though it is still very close, we found the location convenient and personally liked being in the countryside. Michael and his wife were really helpful giving us tips for around the area, and he is a lover of bikes as are we! They were both very helpful and I would definitely recommend the place to anyone who was interested.

I booked this place for my parents' for a week's stay in May as my husband and I live in the area but our apartment is too small to host all of us. Everything regarding the stay was very smooth; Michael was very easy to get hold of to plan the stay of my parents and upon arrival he was very welcoming. The basement studio has its own entrance and set of keys so my parents could come and go as they liked. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting friends or family in the area, or if you want to experience the most beautiful part of Geneva's countryside, just a short busride from the city center.

Antwort von Michael:
Helene, we've noticed this once or twice before ( a slight smell). Last time was a guest who must have thrown something in the garbage and it stayed there too long. After your parents left, we opened the windows wide. We'll also turn on the dehumidifier before your in-laws stay. Michael

Veyrier is a charming village and the basement suite is wonderfully located on a beautiful cul de sac with access to a great bus route either to the village or central Geneva. Michael graciously offered us the use of bicycles which we didn't use but they would make exploring that area and its great restaurants and villages very easy. While the suite is not completely self contained, the bathroom and kitchen are located just outside the private space. They also offer a private sitting area in their lovely garden. Michael has added a TV to the suite. Good wifi connection, lots of hot water. Very helpful hosts.

I grew up in Geneva just a kilometer away from this house. I lived most of my adult years in the US (NY, CA and OR), and returned to live in Europe upon retirement, with my Dutch wife. I still work part-time as a consultant in transportation, primarily in designing streets for "people not in cars." That's why you'll find no car in our garage, but about 10 bikes!
My wife and I enjoy the many cultural events Geneva has to offer, from museums and concerts to street celebrations, as well as walks in the city or through the local vineyards.
I put about 6000 km a year on my road bike, hoping to do all the Alpine passes at least once, and on our tandem we ride a bit more relaxed through the beautiful Swiss countryside.
