Michaela and Gerry were excellent hosts and the apartment was beautiful, it was well stocked having everything we needed including washer / dryer, dish washer, MP3 conection, DVD etc. The apartment is right in the middle of town, walking distance to the ski slopes,shops, bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend the apartment and Garmisch and will definately be visiting again !!
