This is the ideal hub for people who like to stay a bit outside of the cities, like to enjoy Switzerland's nature in order to relax and to stay away from the mass tourism and avoiding parking problems in the cities.

It is useful to visit Villa Wilen by car (parking is no problem, there is a huge free parking lot in front of the Villa). The place has its advantage due to its unique secluded location on Lake Sarnen.
Shopping is no problem. The nearest shop can be reached by a 10 minutes walk, there are also restaurants and bars nearby. More restaurants and bars are located in Sarnen (distance 3 kilometers) or Lucerne (25 kilometers).
In summer this is an ideal hub to visit LUCERNE (with Mount Pilatus), INTERLAKEN, (Jungfrau, Schilthorn & Outdoor Sports), Giessbach Falls, Ballenberg Outdoor Museum, Berne, Engelberg (MOUNT TITLIS), Lake of Lucerne, ZURICH, Melchsee Frutt, Älggi (geographical Center of Switzerland) or Flüeli Ranft/Sachseln (Brother Klaus). BTW: There are all kind of hikes nearby.
In winter it's perfect for SKIING: you can have the ideal combination of alpine skiing/snowboarding (Engelberg, Melchsee-Frutt, Klewenalp, Hasliberg, nearby Mörlialp, Lungern Schönbüel), nordic skiing (Glaubenberg), snowshoe trekking, sledging (Melchsee Frutt) and sight seeing or shopping (Lucerne, Zurich, Berne). Even Milano can be reached within 2 1/2 hours as well...
The house has some nice goodies: in summer direct acces to the lake for SWIMMING, the very popular chillout room allows to enjoy the awesome views on the TERRACE, inside it has a modern CHIMNEY and a beamed CINEMA TV. In Winter the SAUNA in the guests' bathroom might be a welcome recreation as well.
You will be delighted - have a look at the reviews!
We started our airbnb-activity in summer 2011. Since then we could welcome visitors from more than 40 - we love the social exchange with all different cultures!
The house can be rented completely during vacations of the host or shared with the residents while they are present - but still with a high degree of privacy since the house is very big and the hosts are at work over the week days or even sleep outside. The in house elevator facilitates to move between the high floors and avoids to cross each other.
We only host one guest "unit" (not more than one group) at the same time.
Villa Wilen has very large and high rooms and an elevator. This allows easily a shared situation with the 2 hosts. In case of hosts' vacancies there is a possibily to have an unshared situation. There are 2 private bedrooms and 2 private bathrooms for guests' use only; kitchen, dining room and backyard are shared.
Interaction with guests
This depends on the individual wishes of our guests. Some want to have a daily interaction for the coming day, some just enjoy their stay of their own.
Other things to note
Just have a look at the photos and the reviews - they show you the real insights very clearly...:)

We are both very natural and enjoy our small paradise here on Lake Sarnen every single moment. We are also very happy to travel and think to know the needs of the travelers very well. We started to rent our house on Airbnb in 2011. Since then, we hosted over 400 guest groups from all over the world. We appreciate the interaction with our guests of style.
We are very active in sports and spend a lot of time in nature, be it on foot, on our mountain bikes or in winter on skis.
We would be very pleased hosting you - wherever you come from!
Welcome to Villa Wilen!
