Guestbook comments from the owner

I planned this stay in Scheffau online and hoped that it would be as nice as described. We were extremely pleased with everything about the apartments, location and warm hospitality the Earps provided. The pool was convenient and nice for my grandchildren and basically had it to themselves for five days.



This is an exceptionally kid-friendly area with many wonderful places to explore only a few minutes away. Restaurants were excellent as well and often had play areas for children.



So, everything about the mountains, the facilities and the owners was better than I imagined and we were all so pleased with this find in Austria.

Amazing place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 people occupying the apartment for 8 over new year's eve.

The place is absolutely amazing and looked as if it was newly renovated, which shows how much the apartment is being taken care of.

With two bathrooms, two full size bedrooms, a bunk bed room, as well as a little niche under the roof, the apartment provides ample room. But more than that, the living room, dinner table, and kitchen table easily fit all 7 of us, and as a really nice treat: it comes with a fireplace.

The location is close to perfect with the ski bus stopping right at the apartment park and a 3 minute ride to the gondola. If you miss the bus - which may happen in the afternoon, because frankly it isnt running at the most frequent and greatest times - you can simply walk. Takes about 5 to 10 minutes, off the street, along a little creek.

I also want to mention our hosts who were extremely friendly and helpful. We found it a little odd to have to pay everything before actually getting to the place, but in the end we didnt run into trouble and all worked out as expected.

I - and I am sure I speak for the entire group - highly recommend the apartment to both groups and bigger (or two) families. We had an amazing time and I wouldnt be surprised if we came back some time.

A marvellous modern apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by the apartment: spacious, clean, luxury, good furniture and beds. The owners were very kind and made it comfortable for the whole family of 7 persons. The description was complete and up-to-date.

We highly recommend this appartment to people who want a quiet stay without problems, located not far from the village and the cable car. There are also some nice restaurants at walking distance.

Ideally located,well appointed,warm and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to this accommodation and our second during the New Year period.

Howard and Suzanne are warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.

The Apartments are exceptionally warm,clean and spacious.

They are in a beautiful quiet location with stunning views of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains.

Plenty of room to store all of the paraphernalia involved with a family ski holiday.

The apartments are very well equipped with everything provided for the preparation and cooking of meals although we are out most of the time.

The Apartments are lovely and cosy and great to relax in after a day on the slopes.

We prepared breakfast in the mornings before leaving and most mornings caught the free ski bus which picks up at the end of the drive.Some mornings we enjoyed a refreshing short walk to the Gondola station.

There is an excellent ski rental shop next to the Gondola station with equipment for rent of the best quality I have seen.

All excellent new condition and top quality.

The same shop has a Ski Garage where for a few euros you can leave your equipment securely overnight.

There are a few restaurants within walking distance of the Apartments all very good value and serve excellent food.

Scheffau Village is a walk or short drive.

Ellmau is a short drive and is a lively place for a night out with plenty of bars and restaurants.

The apartments are in a fantastic location with the beautiful villages of Kitzbuhel and St Johann a short scenic drive away for the days when your Ski legs need a rest.

There are lovely shops and restaurants to peruse.

Both are picture postcard perfect.

The Skiing within the Tyrol area is fantastic there is a vast area to suit all abilities of skier from the very well staffed kids school to all types of terrain to challenge the pure beginner right through to the highly advanced. The area is very scenic and very well organised and maintained.We will definitely be returning.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment during New Year 2012. Prior to arriving, Suzanne, the owner was very helpful and attentive, making sure we had all of the information we would need about the apartment and the area to plan our trip. The apartment itself was of a high standard throughout and was perfect for our needs. It comfortably slept 8 people (with two large double rooms, one loft room and one bunk bed room) and the communal space was great for eating and socialising together. The apartment was impeccably clean, with clean linen and towels provided. The views of the wilder kaiser mountains from the balconies of the apartment were stunning.

Our only minor quibble was the distance the apartment is from the gondola station- a fifteen minute walk, which can be tiresome following a day of skiing. There is a ski bus if you wish to use that, but we didn't bother. It's also a fair distance (30 min walk) from the supermarket in Scheffau, so it's advisable to try and catch a bus when you're shopping. That said, the walks are not difficult and the views are amazing, so we didn't find them too much of a chore. For the price of this apartment, we also feel the walk fits in with the overall value for money, so don't let this put you off.

All in all, if you're looking for a great value, high quality place to stay for a group, this is perfect - we would definitely return!

Scheffau is a charming, traditional village nestling at the foot of the impressive Wilder Kaiser mountains in the heart of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser ski region. It is the perfect base for skiers with 250km of pistes, over 90 cable cars and lifts and tyrolean hospitality in over 70 huts and restaurants.

Shoppers will enjoy the traditional market town of St Johann, the fortified town of Kufstein and the exclusive resort of Kitzbuhel, all a short bus ride away.

In the summer you can relax in the mountains or at beautiful Lake Hintersteinersee or participate in many activities eg golf, cycling, walking, horse riding, white water rafting. There are also superb water parks locally and themed children's play areas at the top of the mountains. There is a fantastic golf course less than 2 miles away, situated underneath the beautiful Wilder Kaiser moutains.
