A Beautiful Home By The Lake

  • 5 of 5

On our previous trip to Geneva, we stayed with friends in Vernier. On this trip we wanted to stay in town and we could not have found a better place. Mark is a perfect host and the private bedroom and bath were very clean and elegantly decorated. Everything about Mark's home is of the highest caliber, including the remarkable ironing board system. Mark is very gracious and thoughtful. The apartment is perfectly situated overlooking it's own beautiful small park and the lake just beyond. The tram running just in front of the building provided easy access to the main train station and the many organizations of the United Nations. Nearly everything is within walking distance if a mile is not too far to walk. The public transportation system will take you wherever you want to go. Between official events we visited friends and family in Basel and Zurich - the ease of movement is a continuing testimony to Swiss precision. The neighborhood has many restaurants and high end hotels. The evening walks along the lake offered a beautiful nite cap to the sometimes hectic day. You are of course sharing Mark's home with Bill, his wonderful and remarkably well trained dog. It was always delightful to have Bill quietly greet us each evening. Mark, when not lecturing, works from home so there is a need to respect his workspace and thus try to be non-intrusive.This of course requires a sensitivity to others. The kitchen has everything you might need but I felt preparing a full meal might be a bit too intrusive. There is a small balcony overlooking the lake that offers a view of Mt. Blanc when the distant sky is clear and the setting sun illuminates it brightly. By Geneva pricing, this is a great value and an exceptional base from which to venture.

Excellent apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mark and his dog Bill. The bedroom is of good size and the location is great for anything you’d want to do in Geneva. Mark is a gracious host and very helpful with advice on what to do in Geneva and beyond. We wholeheartedly recommend staying here if in the city.

We loved staying in this lovely property with Mark and his dog, Bill.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located near central Geneva in walking distance to the city, train station, restaurants and shopping. There are views of the lake and the city from this eighth floor apartment. Mark, our host, and his adorable dog, Bill, could not have been more helpful and gracious to us. If we could rate 10 stars, we would rate our experience 10 instead of 5.

New friends in Virginia.

Spectacular views from the penthouse of a vintage classy building and a great genleman host

  • 5 of 5

The vintage building is in a great location in Geneva and the 8th floor penthouse views of Lake Geneva Mont Blanc are spectacular - enjoying lunch or dinner or just a drink on the balcony is a treat. Mark is passionate about keeping the traditional appearance and furniture of the penthouse and, along with dog Billy, are great company after a long day of work. A great classy place to stay which combines classy lodging and company.

Amazing City & Even More Amazing Host

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate that Mark accepted my reservation! His home is immaculately appointed yet comfortable. The location is perfectly situated next to the train making travel across the entire Country easy. Also, Mark is quite charming, accomodating and knowledgeable about several things. My solo trip couldnt have been better. I would definitely recommend staying with him!!!

A magnificent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many rental properties among which Mark's elegant and luxurious apartment is unique. It is quiet and beside the lake with view of Mount Blanc. Mark is enormously flexible and very helpful. The apartment is a 10 minute walk down Rue de Lausanne from the central rail station at Cornavin. There are two good restaurants (Le Perle du Lac and the Hotel Royale) within 5-10 min walk.
