We live in a modern house, built in 2006, in a quiet, child-friendly neighbourhood. Our family consists of Gabi (born 1975), Sanna (2004), Nilas (2005), Noris (2008) and our two cats Smilla and Sindri. They must be looked after, but it won’t take you much time to feed them. They are fond of children.
My partner lives together with his two kids in his own house, but most of the time we spend our holidays together, so we’re looking for a house or flat with seven beds, sometime are four beds enough.

Our house on the outskirts of Arbon has two levels. On the ground floor there are the well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom with toilet and shower, one bedroom with a double bed, living room, dining table and a large terrace. We especially love the light of the sun beaming in as we enjoy our meals. We have a free view to the mountain Säntis and the Prealps. We also have a piano in the living room which guests are welcome to play, but no TV. We only watch TV on the laptop/Zattoo. There is WLan available. We’ve got a car park for two cars.
On the second floor there are three children’s rooms, one with a single bed, two with bunk beds, a little office and a little terrace. There is also a little room with a sofa bed for 1-2 persons and a full bathroom. We also have two simply extra mattresses for more persons.
In the cellar there is a game room for children with a table football, lots of playmobil and lego and duplo and other kinds of toys. We have a washing machine and a drier. A third room is for handicrafts.
Our sunny and peaceful garden is 670m2 with a sand box, a fire place, goals for football, a net to play badminton, we’ve the games Kubb and Möllky to play outside, a vegetable garden and lovely fruit trees where you can harvet as much as you want. We also have a covered whirlpool outside for max. 7 persons. Our neighbours are friendly and helpful.
We have enough bicycles (for 4 adults, 1 junior bike) to start a bicycle tour along the Lake Constance, to the forest or the city. We think it’s a wonderful place to relax. We also have roller blades in different sizes and scooters.
The bus station is 5 min to walk. The bus drives to the city center of Arbon or the next bigger city St. Gallen with the famous cathedral. It takes you 15-20 min to walk to the city center of Arbon, 25min to the lake or you go by bike, bus, car or micro scooter.
The nearest airports are Altenrhein, Zurich or Friedrichshafen (Germany). We are near the border of Germany, Austria and Fürstentum Lichtenstein. Distance to Rorschach 15min, Romanshorn 15min (there’s a ferry to Friedrichshafen), St. Gallen 20min, Konstanz 45min, Bregenz 40min, Dornbirn 40min, Lindau 50min, Zurich 1h15min, Basel 2h, Munich 2h 30min, Stuttgart 2h 30min.
Arbon belongs to the canton Thurgau and has 14’000 inhabitants. There are several shops to buy all things you need for daily life. There are two possibilities to swim in the summer: The “Schwimmbad” with several pools directly by the lake and the „Strandbad“ in a quiet area where you can rent canoes, kayaks and SUPs. Beach volley, sailing, surfing, shipping and fishing are also very popular in Arbon. We also have museums, a library, churches, many cafés and restaurants, boutiques and a lot of playgrounds. In summer there are festivals such as Slow up, several music festival as Summerdays, cultural events, concerts etc. A zoo, the Walter Zoo, is in Gossau, it takes 25min to get there by car and a amusement park “Connyland” in Lipperswil. Golf courses and tennis, badminton or squash courts are close to Arbon as well.
Hiking tours, hill and mountain walking or climbing in Toggenburg and to the Säntis, Alpstein with Kronberg, Hoher Kasten etc. is to reach in 45 min by car. Also in wintertime you can go skiing or sledging in the Toggenburg, canton of Graubünden or different ski areas in Austria, to reach in 45-60min. You can do ice sports in Romanshorn and St. Gallen.
Maybe we’ll see you this year. We’re open to any suggestions. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and will of course respond to all messages.
Tschüss und bis bald, the Neuhauser Family
