About our home

Our home is a 3 bedroom house with a surrounding yard including a picturesque pond and a weeping willow tree. An airy entrance leads to the dining and living area as well as to the separate kitchen. The second floor consists of two bedrooms and a study. A loft-like bedroom under the roof (incl. walk-in closet) concludes the house on the third floor. In addition the finished basement hosts a TV room.


More about us

  1. Hi, we (Marlis and Werner Ettlin) are around 60 years old and have two grown sons who live in the States. I (Werner) am a retired management consultant and my wife Marlis is a retired school teacher. We like to travel and we are looking to spend some time in the US to be close to our children. We enjoy nature, taking long walks as well as urban culture and a lively neighbourhood.

Where is it?


The house is situated in a quiet middle class neighbourhood, 5-10 walking minutes from the public transportation. The historic center of Basel (including a major train station with connections to all major European capitals) is 15 bus-minutes away. The Basel international airport can be reached by Bus in 40 minutes or by car in 20 minutes. Zurich airport is 1 hour away. Basel has a well preserved medieval city center offering worldclass culture, such as museums and theater. We also enjoy the immediate proximity to the French and German borders.
