The chalet is situated in a wooded area but within walking distance (5 mins) of Strba train station which you can get a train to Poprad, Bratislava etc (mainline) or to ski resort of Strbske Pleso. The Chalet is stunning, has open plan lounge/diner, kitchen/utility and bathroom. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. The lounge has comfortable leather like sofa's, a huge TV (no live tv but they have 100-200DVD's!) and an incredible log fire. Kitchen was good size with fridge freezer, 2 ovens, hob, microwave and plenty of plates glasses etc. I was worried about a previous review about cleanliness but owner told me before we went that the old cleaner had retired and a new cleaner had been employed. It was VERY clean with plenty of towels and bedding. All rooms have electric heaters but they didn't come on much as the log fire heats the whole chalet. Plenty of hot water too. We stayed 7 nights and did some skiing, walking, shopping and eat and drank too much. I could not believe how cheap it was: 1/2 litre of beer around 1€, a large glass of wine €2 and food from €4/€5. We eat a few nights at Strba Pension a short walk where 4 pizza plus about 20 drinks cost us €45!!! We plan to go back in the Summer. Unbelievable area and great chalet.

We felt like home here. The house is fully equipt. You have everything you need. Hanna, the house keeper is very nice and helpful. We want to return.
