The house is funky and comfortable at the same time and easily accommodated 6 adults and 6 children under 7. The facilities in the house are just what is needed - washing machine and dryer were very much needed! The ski train is only a 3-5 minute walk and goes quickly to the ski slopes. There are good restaurants in Grainau and the area is beautiful. We will definitely be returning.

Very pleased with the apartment - spectacular views from the rear and from the balcony towards the mountains (and I DO mean spectacular!!) - a relaxing vista of open space punctuated with a few wooden huts (presumable for cattle in winter) and views of the Zugspitzbahn and the mountains which are surprisingly near. In fact the apartment is right at the edge of Garmisch and one can enjoy relaxing bike rides or walks towards Grainau in particular. The owner was friendly as was her daughter who speaks some English. Excellent parking facilities at the front of the apartment. Within walking distance of some restaurants if you do not wish to drive into Garmisch. Within cycling distance of plenty of restaurants in Grainau. We were sad to leave...
