Had everything that we needed for our short stay One thing though we struggled to get TV working and couldn't find the instructions however this is only a minor issue and did not detract from the overall experience

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.
