Very basic, old and used, small house. No comfort. No TV. No jacuzzi. No ... No smoking. We like it, if you have a complete profile with enough text, so that we can imagine who you are, and if you write a friendly message telling why you want to stay here. Please no businesses who book for their workers. We do not fulfill their expectations.

Le logement
Please do not book more than 3 months in advance!

In Maur near Zürich we have this small old house with two rooms. This house needs to be rebuilt very soon. This 130 year old house is very basic and worn out. On ground floor it has a small kitchen and upstairs there is a toilet and a shower.

No smoking inside. Because we never smoke, we prefer guest who do not even know what tobacco is.

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.

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 too early in winter and watch the weather conditions first.

Sure, the house is not for just everybody, but there are also many people who did quite like it.

We think this little house is ok until max 4 persons. A dog we count like an extra person.

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)

Local attractions
- 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 wireless (if it works). There is a repeater from the internet in our house and lately it has been working fine. However some movie fans found it was not fast enough.

- bicycles on arrangement, they have to be repaired first

- use showers reasonably as supply of hot water has to last for all.

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.8.60 (valid 2 hours),
or an pass for 24 hours (Zones 10, 21,30) costs Fr.17.20 (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.130.-.)
- tram number 3 to Klusplatz (allow 20 minutes to get there)
- then bus 701, 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.

Pleas don't ask me for the price. Airbnb can calculate it much better than I and if you think it is too cheap then you can make an better offer.

Maur, Zurich, Suisse

Maur is a residential village not far from Zurich where there are still a few farms. It is nice to walk along the lake.

In between travels I have been working in London, Barcelona, and Melbourne. In Australia I have also been a volunteer for the rainforest protection movement and for WWOOF. Before I retired I have been working for the gardens and lands department of Zurich helping the employees with their IT issues. When I travel I am missing Bürli bread and chocolate yoghourt. I am married to Elisangela who is from rural Brasil. She works preparing lunch for a lot of school children and she is also verger of an old pretty church in Zurich. Elisangela misses her home land and calls her parents every day. I have read about Airbnb businesses who are already more like a hotels because they are listing so many accommodations, and I counted I am also listing 10 accommodations. One of then is an old couple who have a cute cottage in their garden. We always like to meet them. What I get from Airbnb I entirely pass to them and they give me from the delicious eggs of their chicken sometimes. Two rooms that I am listing are from a friend whose house was too empty after his wife died. Now the house is much livelier and he also seems much happier again. He thinks I should get something for making those contacts, even if I never expected it. Three listings are actually only one holiday house that we own, but during the Film Festival in Locarno I only rent two rooms and I make breakfast because then we always have very good conversations under the kaki tree. Our own accommodations are not so perfect and therefore I try to describe them very well, hoping that sophisticated people won't even consider staying with us. Airbnb says it is not a hotel, but I always get messages trying to encourage me for instant booking. I think that instant booking should be something exclusively for hotels. If people do not have a meaningful profile or if they won't tell anything about themselves then I might not even answer their requests.

Durant votre séjour

Don't book immediately! Write us first a message telling who you are and why you want to stay in this house. Please write at least 20 words into your Airbnb profile. If your personality is top secret, then we prefer that you stay elsewhere.

We are not always around, but we love to chat, laugh or have a drink with our guests. The guests who never talk with us are usually the ones who leave a negative reference.

One of our recent guests was a playwrite and I even got engaged a an extra in the movie. This was a lot of fun.
