It was not a nice experience.

  • 1 of 5

The top floor unit we had booked was filled with another group. We were moved to the main floor unit that was not appropriate for our group of 7. It was dirty, the fridge was outside the building, there was no washing machine, the bbq had no propane, the ceiling was about 6 ft 4 inches. After we checked out on time the owner sent a couple emails saying we checked out late and that he wanted more money. We proved that we checked out on time. We requested a partial refund for being placed in a lesser accommodation and were not offered anything. The owner did not care that we were in a lesser accommodation than we paid for.

Saxeten is a beautiful community of about 100 people at an elevation of 4000 ft. There is a beautiful rustic hotel here and other VRBO properties. My complaint is that our property was double booked or falsely advertised and the owner didn’t care to do anything.

We have photos of our unit before, during and after. We have emails where the owner admits his booking mistake. We have the email where the owner accused us of staying late and requested even though we were already in Austria. We had neighbours who watched us check out, have receipts from stores between Saxeten, Switzerland and Innsbruck, Austria.

I would not recommend staying at this property.

Cozy cabin & beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a cozy cabin away from it all! The drive "home" each evening was a highlight of our travels. Very peaceful location. Cabin itself is small, but the lay-out worked well for our family with 8 children. Great location and we would recommend this rental!

Séjour Rural dans un cadre magnifique

  • 4 of 5

Le chalet nous a paru très rustique au premier abord mais finalement nous l'avons quitté avec regrets car malgré sa simplicité il est fort bien aménagé.

La literie est confortable. La cuisine est pratique, tous les ustensiles de cuisine utiles et vaisselle sont prévus. Il y a également lave linge, sèche linge et mini lave vaisselle ce qui n'est pas négligeable lorsque l'on vient en famille et avec de jeunes enfants.

Saxeten est vraiment un village sympathique dans un cadre magnifique. Idéal pour les randonneurs et les amoureux de la nature.

A noter quand même que la route d'accès est une vraie route de montagne, compter 10 mn pour accéder aux commerces les plus proches mais cela fait parti de son charme et il y a aussi tout un tas de choses à découvrir dans ce petit village qui ont ravi nos petits enfants comme la scierie avec sa roue à aube...
