We were greeted personally by George, the owner who lives next door and who is very helpful with any questions. The house is very newly renovated to a high standard. The property is convenient for seeing the Wachau area and it is only approximately a one hour drive to Vienna. The only disappointment was the lack of outside space during our stay which is the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars. The patio had been recently washed away and George was in the process of rebuilding it while we were there. This should however be rectified in the very near future so don't let it put you off booking.
