Guest e-mails: Dear Ms O'Brien. You are the first one that I contact after our return to South Africa. That says a lot considering that I had more than 200 e-mails to respond to. It was absolutely marvellous! We enjoyed every minute, come sunshine, rain or snow. The changing light from the balcony is something that one can only experience and not describe. The apartment is magnificent and a true joy. Best regards, Yours sincerely, Frank and Rene Hodgson ....


Ursula and John,
Patrice and I are now very spoilt. Engelberg and your beautiful home was a perfect place to vacation for the week. The people in town, the restaurants (as you recommended, Axels was excellent as was the Waldegg), the skiing and wonderful scenery made for a great week. We look forward to coming back to visit again in the future. If you ever have a potential customer who needs a reference on your home and Engelberg... we'll get right back to them with rave reviews.
All our best wishes, Tom and Patrice Culligan...

Guest e-mails: Hi Ursula,

I cannot thank you enough for our great stay in Alphaven. It is beyond what we had imagined. Our first wedding anniversary went off just beautifully!!

It is just a beautiful place and my wife was so happy to be there. The only problem we had was that we never felt like leaving the place … the view and the luxury in your apartment was just amazing. We will remember it for the rest of our lives.

Again, thanks a lot for making this happen for us. We know where to stay when we are in Switzerland next time around.

Warm regards

Vijay and Anita

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Ursula my wife is Swiss and I (John) am from the UK. We spend nearly half the year in Engelberg and the rest at our house in Berkswell in the UK. Having travelled the world and discovered many wonderful places, it was the beauty and tranquility of Engelberg, first visited in 1998, that made us realise we had found somewhere quite exceptional ... so we bought a plot of land up on the sunny side of the village with the best views in Engelberg, and finished building our house in 2002. Since then we enjoy nothing more than sharing Alphaven with our guests, family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Engelberg, Switzerland:
When we found the perfect plot of land to build on in Engelberg in 1998 ... because of my previous "creative" life in Commercial Television and Live Events, I had a very clear vision of what I wanted in our dream property and within 24 hours, I had completed plans and elevations for the house which was essentially what we built ... a wonderful architect then worked with me to make sure it stood up on our steep bit of mountain. It has been a true delight to live there ever since.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Everyone who visits Alphaven waxes lyrically about the Breathtaking Panoramic Views to be had from every apartment. It has without doubt the finest views from a property in Engelberg and arguably the best Mountain views in Switzerland (you don’t have to take our word for it, please look at our Tripadvisor and Homeaway reviews) All our apartments are contemporary but very warm and comfortable with underfloor heating in all rooms. With high spec technical facilities and equipment along with modern furnishings and an abundance of floor to ceiling windows … it makes for a perfect holiday destination. Engelberg gets 220 days per year of sunshine and Alphaven being south facing gets the sun all day long.
