Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you

Rita welcomed us and offered perfect suggestions for activities. Our two girls loved sleeping in their secret, cove-like bed and we all enjoyed being spread out with our own space. The deck has a stunning view of the mountain range -- we must have taken hundreds of photos. The kitchen is well equipped and a nearby market made it easy to prepare meals. We took Rita's advice and had dinner at Gasthaus Echo -- we highly recommend. The drive to Gosausee is only 5 minutes and is the most beautiful lake we have visited during our 3 month stay in Austria. When we return to Gosau, we will definitely book this property again!

The apartment was super clean and in excellent condition. Good quality linens were provided and bath & kitchen linens were changed after 5 days in our 7 day stay. This was fabulous and unusual in our previous apartment stays. A good sized balcony which caught the afternoon sun, great for drying our washing or a drink with nibbles after a hard day out. There was a parking spot provided with the apartment but we didn't need it. Good TV facilities which our hosts upgraded (increased English channels) during our stay. The location was super, 7mins to a Spar supermarket walking along the river and thru a cool treelined path or a 5min walk to the train & bus station made it all so easy to get around. Our hosts were lovely, super helpful prior to our arrival & during our stay, they couldn't do enough to make sure you would enjoy the apartment or the town of Bad Ischl and its surrounding areas. We thank them for helping our stay to be so memorable. We recommend this apartment and the town of Bad Ischl it has many charms and must do activities as well a great base for visiting Hallstatt, St Wolfgang, St Gilgen, Salzburg, many wonderful walks around beautiful lakes like Gosausee and others. Its a place to stay and enjoy a wonderful magical area full of many pleasures Summer or Winter.
