                                                                                      We (2 adults and 2 children - 10/12) stayed recently in this clean, perfect apartment, ideally placed for skiing on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. The owner, Audrey, was really helpful prior to our booking and provided all the information we needed to ensure that the location and ski access was what we were looking for. The apartment is situated a few minutes walk from the ski bus stop. These start at 8am and are plentiful, every 15/20 mins or so. We were a little worried that being towards the end of the route we would have trouble getting on. But this didn't happen as buses came along frequently. The apartment itself is part of a building with enclosed parking, bin area (easily accessed) and really good washing facilities on the ground floor. The apartment was perfect for what we needed. Two bedrooms, one with twin beds for the children and an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. TV and DVDs were good for the evening and playing back our videos from the days. The kitchen hob worked really well and fridge/freezer had a lot of storage.There was a bathroom and a separate toilet which was useful, while trying to get out in the morning. The apartment also had a storage closet and underfloor heating, which can be controlled by room thermostats, if you needed to heat separate rooms. Very useful for drying. The apartment building has a really good lift, when moving bags/skis etc up and down. The children liked to spend 20 minutes each day playing on the swing and slide, which could be seen from our balcony. The view from the balcony is of the outskirts of Kaprun (as we were at the top end), the road and supermarket which is 30 seconds from the apartment, but the snow covered mountains and glacier are breathtaking. The presence of the supermarket was perfect. Being self catering and not having a car, it was very easy to stock up for the week and each day. Also, there isn't any noise from the supermarket car parking either, as it wasn't that busy. Made things very easy and didn't really spoil the view. Kaprun centre is a nice ten minute walk where there are a variety of bars and restaurants. We ate out a couple of times and there was a good variety of places. Although there wasn't any snow in the town on our visit, i'm sure that it would be look fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment. It made our stay really enjoyable and easy! We would return.
