The apartment was ideal, spotless and comfortable and in a great location. Although it was the tail end of the season which meant that many local restaurants etc were shut we still found plenty of choice, although really benefitted from a car to explore the wider area. Would love to stay again!

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
