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.

You will find clean towels and sheets, but they are not ironed.
- 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.

Very old farmhouse however the atmosphere was very comforting and a great place to spend a peaceful few nights.
Really great and lovely hosts. A really nice old farmhouse like the description. That was certainly not my last time I was here. Five out of five stars. Great!
Wirklich tolle und nette Gastgeber. Ein richtig schönes altes Bauernhaus, wie auf der Beschreibung. Das war sicher nicht mein letztes Mal, dass ich hier war. Fünf von fünf Sternen. Toll!
Very nice apartment with a terrace overlooking a magnificent view of Barcelona. It would be foolish to refuse to rent because many steps!
Très bel appartement avec une terrasse donnant sur une vue magnifique de Barcelone. Il faudrait être fou de refuser de louer à cause des marches nombreuses !
This place is really in the middel of everything. Surprisingly quiet considering the location.
Very basic but sufficiently.
Beatuiful afternoon sun on the terrace, perfect for a cold beer at 5 pm. If you open the window in the bathroom while showering you can shower in the sun :-)
You have to like climbing stairs.
Me and my girlfriend Frida stayed with Reinhard and Elisangela for three nights. It felt like home! They are very kind and hospitable people and Maur is a very beautiful place. Thanks for a great time!
Unfortunately, the whole was a mix of misunderstandings and communication problems in our company. I am very sorry that this is so over. Of course, our mechanics were rebuked. The SO will not happen again.
Das ganze war leider ein Mix aus Missverständnissen und Kommunikationsproblemen in unserem Unternehmen. Es tut mir sehr leid dass das so gelaufen ist. Selbstverständlich wurden unsere Monteure zurechtgewiesen. Das wird SO nicht nocheinmal vorkommen.
Reinhard's house is very nice, big and comfortable. Reinhard's friends also were very nice to us, they gave us lots of tips and took good care of us. Overall a very successful holiday in Maur.
Reinhards Haus ist sehr sympathisch, groß und gemütlich. Auch Reinhards Freunde waren sehr nett zu uns, sie haben uns viele Tipps gegeben und sich gut um uns gekümmert. Insgesamt ein sehr gelungener Urlaub in Maur.
Atico is a nice and cosy place to stay
it's all so, like Reinhard has described. We enjoyed the stay it was lovely, better you can not go on holiday in Barcelona, right in the center of the old town and it is a magnificent gem, perfect.
es ist alles so, wie Reinhard es beschrieben hat. wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen es war herrlich, besser kann man in Barcelona nicht Urlaub machen, direkt im Zentrum in der Altstadt und dazu in einem wundervollen Kleinod, perfekt.
