Liz is a bubbly person who is very keen for a chat. She makes you feel very welcome in her home. Great location. Work very fair. Would highly recommend and would love to go back.

We stayed for a month with Liz and had a great time! Liz is full of energy and was always suggesting things to do together or solo. The tasks were gardening and cleaning a few airbnbs, both not too difficult. Lots of delicious veggie foods to try and I enjoyed learning new recipes and preserving things in the kitchen in particular. Theres a lot to do in Interlaken and surrounds if you enjoy nature and hiking. We would love to return someday in summer or winter!

Liz treated us exceptionally well. It was everything we hoped for and more. We were with her for 2 months and LOVED every minute of the work and living in Interlarken. We worked 5 hours/day, 5 days a week and were given extra days off if we worked overtime. The food and accommodation was as promised. We would recommend this to anyone outdoorsy and excited about hiking, biking etc on their days off. Liz is a big character with lots of energy! We are happy to answer any questions from anyone. Thank you Liz we hope to see you again in the future ☺️

Interlaken was beautiful! We had a great stay and we're able to da few of the hikes with the schedule. It's worth mentioning that the work is 90% housekeeping and only 10% in the garden, so we were a little disappointed about that, but it was still a learning experience to see how air bnb's are run in the Alps. Lots of the food we ate came from the garden so the access to fresh food was amazing, Liz has loads of knowledge so it's great to ask her for tips for your own garden. It was a great experience and we're happy to answer any questions about it :)

Maddie was a super positive and energetic person to have around. She helped me a lot with her housekeeping, As I have injuries and need a lot of help with that. And she had great ideas and suggestions which we put into action. Finally her and the team are to thank for realizing my outdoor kitchen dream! 🥰🙏🤩💪



This experience taught me more than I could have ever imagined, so I will treasure every single moment for the rest of my life. Liz is an amazing host and an even better human being. Be prepared to do tough but purposeful work. The location couldn't be better to explore beautiful Switzerland and be amazed by breathtaking views every day. Gracias por todo Liz!
