About Mark Cawood

Family run Chalet. We fell in love with the area within minutes of arrival and had to buy a property in Obertraun. Haus Veronika was the result!

Mark Cawood purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Mark Cawood chose Dachstein West - Lake Hallstatt

Great ciews from the Balcony looking over Lake Hallstatt and towards the Krippenstein mountains.

6 Bedroom - 5 Bathroom Chalet In The Beautifull Salzkammergut Area of Austria
average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews

We all loved it

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

I don't like giving feed backs but in this case am very happy to do so. We had a wonderful time with all the family, I could nearly given it a 5 however, the little down side was that the cleaning lady wanted to come in very early and we decided to leave on the Saturday before 8am so that she could do her work without us in her way.

The situation of the house was great and the weather gave the younger members of our family many happy hours in the lake, playing Games on the grass and the soccer on the sand. WE appreciated very much our welcome by Mark and Jane and their willingness to be of help during the whole week.

It proved a very good choice for us and thank you very much to all who helped it happen for us Peter and Ann and all the family

We were a big group of 8 adults and 1 infants and this house was exactly what we needed. The owner was really helpful, right from the beginning all the way up to the end of our stay. Mark and Jane, who live across the street and have a B&B usually help with the check-ins and since we were not going to arrive at the house before 10pm, I had exchanged emails with them and Mark was really helpful in getting the property cleaned and well prepared for our arrival including setting up the baby cot. I did meet them next morning and they were so helpful and friendly! Mark told me about this amazing bakery in town called Eduscho which is only open from 7am-12pm. They have the most amazing coffee and assortments of breads. The town of Obertraun is really very charming with a few amazing restaurants and a grocery store. We spent 4 days in this lovely house while exploring the nearby town of Hallstatt, Bad Ischl, Bad Goisern, Bad Aussee, Altausee, Ebensee etc. Did I mention that the house is a mansion? :) The kitchen was well equipped for breakfasts and dinners for our big group. I really loved the game/drawing room in the basement where we spent most of our evenings playing cards, Wii, monopoly and pictionary.

I would definitely recommend this property!

Big house great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is as described and was quite spacious for our group of 11 people. The property was clean and well prepared for our arrival. We were able to get all our questions about the house and the town quickly answered while we were there. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing breakfasts and dinners for our group.

The house is well located for hiking, biking and is close a lakeshore beach.

I would recommend this for a big family or group stay.

Perfect stay for groups

  • 5 of 5

We were a group oft 10 adults and 2 children and stayed 1 Week in this chalet in obertraun.

It is a big house with enough space and everything you need inside. Some men Were disappointed about no austrian TV …😋

It was clean and we liked the possibility to recycle our garbage.

The cellar is huge and has a separate Entry so it was perfect for our bicycles and buggy.

Mark is a very nice guy who helps instantly whenever you need something and gives good advice for Restaurants. We loved the "höllwirt" amazing food, good prices, huge playground and terrace.

The only thing i would like to improve : in some bedrooms there is no sunprotection at the Windows installed. So it is kinda bright early in the morning.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation at a beautiful place.

Wonderful rental home in Austria!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful rental home in the Salzkammergut. Very quiet and peaceful with lots of room, you are close to Hallstatt and to the Dachstein mountain hiking. The house is clean and well maintained on a nice side street. We were met at arrival by Jane and Mark from the B and B across the street. They were so helpful and friendly! The town of Obertraun is charming with a few restaurants and a grocery store. I would highly recommend this property!
