Well, a couple of us wanted to go to Zermatt in August 2017 for a week of hiking/climbing so we were looking for accommodation and found this one sort of last minute. Great communication with Pauline, the owner beforehand and when we arrived the apartment was ready to make our week stay a delight. The price we got was excellent. We arrived on a Sunday evening and went straight to the Apartment. The location of the apartment in my opinion is simply one of the best you can get in the village. Even if you walk very slowly it may take you less than about 2 minutes to get to the main street. The train station and the supermarket is approximately the same distance. Very handy. Oh, and you need to visit the Lindt shop... it's about 5 minutes away :-) I am comfortable to say that Zermatt is one of the most beautiful places in the Alps if you are into outdoors. It is simply stunning. The village looks like what you would expect in the Alps however I have never seen so many watch shops in one place in my whole life. Lot's of nice restaurants all around the place although we preferred to cook for ourselves most of the time as the apartment had all that was needed for self catering. In the evenings we just sat on the balcony and enjoyed the great view of the village... There is endless possibilities for hiking/climbing and a ton of great walks start from the village itself. We definitely fell in love with Zermatt and when we return again Zayetta apartment will be our first option to go to... Thank you Pauline.
Owner Pauline is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is set up to handle a number of guests, with one large bedroom, one with twin beds, and one with a double and a single. It's central to "downtown " Zermatt, and close to the cable car to the Mountain Glacier Paradise as well as other ski attractions. There's a room downstairs for your skis, although we ourselves didn't use it. Although there's a separate cleaning charge not part of the room quotes, the overall fees were very reasonable.
Our friend booked the flat and we were so glad we did. Place was very cozy and close to the train station. Had all the amenities of home and we were able to cook breakfast and dinner. Very close to Coop so you can purchase food. Eating out everyday would have been very expensive. We would book this again if we come back to Zermatt during the summer. Book this with an open mind that it's someone's home.

An apartment in a great location, lovely views, beautiful walks close by, and a very personal service. Our third stay here and it won't be our last!

Booking the apartment was easy. The owner was quick to respond and friendly in answering my questions.
The location is brilliant, very close to the train station, the Gornegrat train, shops and the meeting place for the ski lessons for my children.
The apartments inside is cozy. It is not a typical rental and does not feel like a impersonal hotel. The decor is personal and comfortable, which I liked. However if you are looking for a modern and neutral decor than this is not for you as it is dated (bathrooms have tiles from the 1970s) and in the kitchen the cabinets are very tired.
The views are ok, mostly looking out over other buildings however you can also see the mountains but it is not a wide open view of the mountains.
It's lovely to have the balcony and very sunny during the day.
With children laundry needs to be done daily and I felt that was a bit of a hassle having to bring it down to the shared laundry room and bringing lots of small coins. I would have preferred a laundry facility in the flat itself.
Regarding the bedrooms the following:
- The two larger bedrooms are lovely, bright and spacious. However the third bedroom is very small and gets warm because it has no outside window. I was only in a party of three so we did not use this bedroom, but I would not have liked to sleep in it if my party been larger.
- One of my children is allergic and I requested non-allergic/synthetic bedding materials. It did not work out with the pillows so next time I may have to bring my own pillows.
- Lastly there was no curtain in one of the larger bedrooms and I mentioned this to the owner and they said they would be happy to put one up again.
In summery, we had a wonderful time and would like to come back to this apartment!
