I'm one of the owners of The Swiss Villa. We provide the ideal midterm setting for professional expats before they are ready to rent their own apartment.
Our villa is located on a quiet residential street in the prestigious Zurichberg neighborhood. The house was built in the Protected content , has been beautifully and tastefully remodeled just a few years ago and comes with several unique design features.
The place comes with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, out of which we rent out 3 bedrooms to expats. Of these rooms, the sunny middle bedroom is becoming available as of June 1st. It holds a large double bed, offers a desk and chair, storage space, and a Bose iPhone docking station. It has french windows that lead to a huge terrace. You will be sleeping in softest sheets and find extra linen and towels. The private bathroom comes with a wonderful rain shower. The monthly cost for this particular room is CHF 1'650.-, there are no additional costs for heating /water/cleaning lady etc.
The huge living and dining room Protected content is a great place to chat with the other guests, or read from our selection of newspapers and magazines. The large private backyard off the living room allows you to sit out and have a BBQ or enjoy a glass of wine. The yard also features a charming pavilion with a fireplace.
If you wish to eat in and cook yourself, there are two grocery stores (Migros and Spar) within very short walking distance, and you are welcome to use our extensively equipped kitchen, which includes two steamer ovens, a regular oven, a microwave oven, and a teppanyaki griddle.
A cleaning lady comes in 3x a week to assure the place stays in perfect and clean condition; your room and bathroom will be cleaned, bedsheets changed once a week. The cleaning lady can also iron your shirts if you wish (to be paid to her directly).
The house is conveniently located just steps from two tram stations and a bus stop (tram no. 5 and 6/bus no. 33), so there is no need to buy or rent a car. Within just a 10 minutes tram ride you‘ll be at Zurich main train station, Bellevue, the Bahnhofstrasse (the main shopping street). Zurich‘s zoo with its famous Masoala Rain Forest hall and many jogging trails are just three tram stops away. The campus of Zurich University is also just a 5 minutes tram ride away, therefore the villa is great for faculty members as well.
The Swiss Villa with its mix of international tenants offers a great opportunity for everyone to meet other interesting professionals from around the world. We, the owners (Swiss, well-traveled) live in the house as well.
Rooms are available for the duration of 1 month to up to 3 months. The other 2 bedrooms (bright corner bedrooms, each with its en-suite bathroom) might become available any month.
