You will enjoy the exclusive use of the top floor of our home: 40 m2 open floor plan for work or leisure. Furnished with 2 comfortable beds, bookcase, closet, desk, wifi and abundant natural light. Use of the kitchen, LR, etc. Lake views gratis.
Your private guest room is the entire upper floor of our house. We've kept its original open floor plan to make the most of its 40 m2 and exposed beam ceilings.
Zugang für Gäste
You will have access to ground floor (EG) where the kitchen, dining, living rooms are situated, plus the entire top floor (up 4 flights of stairs). And of course our lake-view terrace and garden are yours to enjoy. We have private off-street parking spaces if you arrive by car or the SBB train stop is a 10 minute walk away (or ride the VBZ bus if you prefer not to walk).
Interaktion mit Gästen
Our guests become an honorary member of Swiss Family Blom during your stay with us. If schedules permit, you are invited to share breakfast with us before you start your day. If privacy is what you prefer, there's no obligation to mingle or mix.
Leave your shoes inside the door and slip on a pair of comfy house slippers (provided for you). If you are still a smoker, do so outside on our covered garden terrace. If you are traveling with a pet, please make special arrangements with us in advance. And if you wish to host a party or event, we wish you success but we're probably not the right host for you.
As our special guest, you may expect much more than a well-appointed private room, comfortable bed and clean bathroom with fresh towels and a hair dryer. You can also expect to take home a suitcase or backpack full of new and wonderful stories to share from your stay us.
Who we are
Swiss Family Blom (Anita, Joel, Luisa and Julius) are of Austrian-Swiss-American heritage who love traveling and frequenting airbnb listed homes or apartments when on business or holiday. Using shared spaces; we’ve discovered delightful people, neighborhoods and met many remarkable hosts, some of whom became good friends.
A few years ago, our family income was drastically curtailed due to a corporate downsizing. In order to help save $ for family excursions, we began privately renting our guest bedroom to friends and friends of friends. The experiences have been overwhelmingly positive.
We feel very fortunate to have lived and raised our kids over the past 18 years in our small community of Herrliberg, overlooking the lake of Zurich, yet only 15 minutes by auto or public transportation to the heart of downtown Zurich. We hope you will love it too and look forward to meeting you.
Sincerely yours, Swiss Family Blom
Bonus for Weekend Guests:
If you should happen to stay over on a Saturday, we invite you to join in a scheduled painting class, held in Anita's studio in our home ( "Malpunkt Herrliberg" on the Internet) if there are any free spaces available.
