The house is very suitable for large groups of people, the dining room is spacious and nice. The kitchens are very well equipped and nicely organized. The house is very warm and there is hot water for everyone. There is ski room in the yard with heating for ski boots, very comfortable. The ski bus is not faraway, around 3-4 min walk with the children, and ski bus is every 15 minutes in the morning and afternoon ( for both ski zones Kaprun and Zell am see ) One of big advantages of the house is the great number of rooms, they are not big, but there is a lot of rooms for everyone to be in his private space. The other big advantage are the owners - very decent people. The communication is prompt and clear, plus the owners are always ready to cooperate you in case of some question or issue. Definitely would recommend the house to my friends.

It is also perfectly located for both the gondola station and the town all of which are in easy walking distance with no need for a car. We would definitely not hesitate to stay here in the future.

The kids had a great time. They played on the second floor. Went to the farmer when a calf was born and were allowed to stay with the cow and calf as long as they wanted. The house itself was very clean and comfortable. The hostess was warm and willing to help. The beds are good, nice showers. We would love to come back in 2018 but unfortunatelly they were already booked.
