The space

From the moment you step in to the property and walk through the wooden terrace you are transported to a magical oasis.

In keeping with the lakeside location, 5 minutes from the golden coast of Zürich, furnishings are characterized by unique Balinese ornaments - fish and shells everywhere, huge white umbrellas rendering shade to the inviting lounge furnishings, from where a spectacular view of the lake could be enjoyed.

A stairway leads the way to a Balinese landscaped garden -lounge chairs with white pillows, white umbrellas, huge Balinese wooden sculptured fish, a white hammock, beautiful trimmed garden lined with typical Balinese lamps.

All these will soothe your senses, invigorate your soul, and provide you with a renewed sense of oneness.

The minimalist designed STUDIO facing the Balinese garden, displays a selection of Indonoesian artifacts incuding handmade Balinese fabrics. When the night light falls, the enchanting lamps silhouette the four graceful cherry trees giving a true tropical breeze all over.

The Studio has one big double-bed bedroom, which can fit another double bed. It has a separate room with small well equipped kitchen. It has also a small dining room - this room can fit instead a single or double bed, if wished.

An additional double room could be rented - please inquire for further details

From this oasis, the location is perfectly situated, a few minutes away for a swim, from a selected trendy Zurich restaurants and bars, from the fine sandy beaches of Zurich, from the famous city shopping mile. Within an hour or less most leisure activities could be reached - the alps for skiing, the exclusive golf courses for a game, most tourist attractions could be visited.

We stayed at Carmencita and Mario's delightful downstairs Oasis just outside of Zurich. The views are amazing of the lake and the low rolling hills on the far shore. The location is very convenient for getting into and out of Zurich - however given what transport costs we found it most economical to use a car to drive and park rather than the trains. The train is about a 10-15 minute walk away but again, if you have more than one person it really makes sense to drive and park. Cabs are crazy in Zurich - the most expensive in the world - and thankfully Carmencita gave us the heads up on their cost before we tried one! The place itself as mentioned has great views over Lake Zurich as well as a nice lawn area - I would have loved to see the robot mower in action. Its dead quiet at night. You will hear 4 trains an hour go by but they are fast and quiet and were never an issue. Contrary to what Carmencita had said, there were no mosquitoes which made sitting out at night nice. The nicest surprise for us were the two local restaurants just down the hill about 5-7 minutes away - Strozzi and Seehaus. Great menus, great food and great views. Why cook when you can have someone cook for you! We had a very nice stay and if we are back in the area we would definitely consider staying again although given our tendency to travel heavy we would probably try to book the more spacious upstairs 'house' rather than the 'loft'. Carmencita and Mario were great with tips and info as well as providing an adapter that we had forgotten (having thought that the Swiss used the same plugs as the Germans).

We loved staying at Carmencita's Asian Oasis. Everything was as good or better than we expected. The location is wonderful, the views Fantastic and the neighborhood extremely quiet. Carmencita and Mario are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We asked Carmencita to book a taxi to pick us up from the train and again for our return but she picked us up herself and then drove us back for the return. We are extremely grateful and recommend her apartment highly.

This property was even better than expected, and a very easy commute into Zurich. Mario and Carmencita were kind enough to provide transport to and from the Herrliberg train station, as well as to the shops. The lake view was lovely, and the location convenient to both train and boat connections. The hosts kindly allowed me to use their washing machine and iron. I would definitely return here.
