It is spacious and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable holiday. There is a wrap around terrace with loungers and table and the panoramic view is just beautiful. The apartment was quiet and peaceful and very close to town, the only noise being the waterfall nearby! We really enjoyed using the pool and jacuzzi too. Caroline and Steve are great hosts and gave us lots of tips and advice regarding ski passes, ski hire etc which was really useful. Fantastic place, we can't wait to return next year!

The chalet is cozy, well maintained, very clean and has a great location in the out skirts of Bad Gastein (10 minutes car drive from ski lift in Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein). Our communication with Stephan was really good. He always answered our requests very quickly, and we therefore felt us good taken care of when we stayed in his chalet. We give Stephan and his chalet 5 stars! Of course there is always a bit room for improvement. We've a couple of minor suggestions: 1. You pay a certain amount and then you've unlimited internet access in the chalet 2. Better information about car parking from the booking agency (we were a bit confused when we arrived. You park in front of the chalet in the right side of the street, but we thought could use the car parking space a couple of meters from the chalet. This belongs to the neighbors) 3. Better information about hot water. One evening, we ran out of hot water (we were 6 persons who had to take a shower every evening) and found out the water heater only heats water during the night. A heated place in the basement where you could hang your ski boots to dry. There is only heat in the bathroom in the basement. Above mentioned is only MINOR suggestions! We really enjoyed our stay and enjoyed to come home from a great ski day on the mountain to a warm, cozy chalet with modern facilities. We especially loved the pellet stoves in each floor, the large and stylish bathroom and the balcony overlooking Bad Gastein! Thank you so much Stephan for a great holiday. We'll definitely contact you again if we come back to Bad Gastein - which is (by the way) a great ski area! Best regards Eriksen family from Denmark
