Adding Value to Real Estate since 2005

Temporary Housing Made in Switzerland


What we do

Nest aligns the demand for short-term, live-in-ready housing with the supply of regulated, long-term housing.

We do this by supplying straightforward and comfortable apartments for people relocating to Switzerland with the need to register their permits. We also provide people short-term, interim housing to accommodate the situation their in.

We aim to make the process of finding and staying in a temporary apartment as seamless as possible for our guests.

‍Furniture Manufacturing

M‍arket Platform

‍Nest has developed an open market platform aimed at streamlining the search and booking process for temporary housing in Switzerland, making it more efficient and user-friendly for all.

Facility Management

With a comprehensive in-house maintenance and management service, Nest ensures extended service delivery to guests while maintaining consistent quality across all real estate properties.



Nest began its journey in 2005 with the opening of its first apartment in Baar (ZG). Since then, it has expanded its presence, offering comfortable and convenient temporary living spaces in Zug, Zurich, and Basel.





In 2009, Nest acquired its first entire property in Zurich and started to manage corporate apartment portfolios for various clients.

In 2015, Philippe Aenishaenslin took over full ownership from his family venture and re-launched the brand from AE Business Home to Nest Temporary. To keep up with the fast-changing market, Nest acquired a competitor in 2017.





In 2019, Nest decided to integrate facility management, bringing service like housekeeping, maintenance and light renovations in-house.

In 2020, Nest also launched its own furniture production facility, based on an upcycling concept. This enabled Nest to create customized, low-waste, and interchangeable furniture for its units, reflecting its commitment to sustainability and innovation.





Nest realized that the temporary housing market was not only evolving in terms of physical units but also needed development in how they are sourced and booked. That's when Nest ventured into E-commerce to digitally connect suppliers, customers, and guests across Switzerland, simplifying and speeding up the process and creating common knowledge.
