eine sehr schöne Wohnung mit toller Aussicht. Mit der Anreise hat auch super geklappt! Und mit der Buchung ja auch. War schön dass wir Ihre Gäste sein konnten.
lovely apartment with ample space for 6, nice and clean, lovely views, easy to find using sat nav, had a great time skiing
We had a great week. We went skiing with 4 adults and 2 children. It's a comfortable apartment. Everything uou need is around. The owners are kind and helpfull. I recommend this apartment when you want to go skiing in Kaprun or Zell am See.
The apartment is in a great location between Kaprun and Zell Am See, a bit far to walk so a car is recommended. The views are stunning from the balcony. The apartment is well equipped although we were out and about most of the time as there's so many nice places to visit so we really only slept there.
The owner was very helpful and the booking was via email, the deposit was refunded without any problem.
Nice Appartement with great view on a hill. Not far away to Ski area and city.
Appartement is gelegen op enkele kilometers van de skigebieden in Kaprun en Zell am See.
Beide skigebieden zijn per auto en bus erg goed bereikbaar. Prima locatie.
Appartement in zit in een huis met enkele andere appartementen. Geen last gehad van de buren.
Het appartement bestaat uit één grote woonkamer met keukenblok en ruime eettafel.
Het keukenblok/aanrecht is aan de kleine kant.
Verder is alles aanwezig. De pannen zouden een keer vervangen kunnen worden.
Slaapkamers prima in orde.
Twee douches aanwezig, handig als 6 mensen willen/moeten douchen na het skiën.
Tijdens piekuren ('s ochtends en 's avonds een uur) werd het warme water niet aangevuld. Hierover waren we vooraf ingelicht.
Paar keer last van gehad met douchen, geen groot probleem.
Op vragen/e-mails werd snel gereageerd.
TL;DR: Goed appartement, prima prijs, prima contact met verhuurder en goede afhandeling voor en na de tijd. 8/10
Excellent choice for everyone who search for a quiet place, but still with a central location for most of Austria attractions. Rent a car and nothing is far away from there! About the apartment itself - no complaints: we found it in a very good condition, spaced enough for 5 persons, modern planned, very well equipped with all you need, included a high standard kitchen. But the 5 stars it deserves for the outstanding balcony view with the highest peaks in Austria exactly under/above your nose and a very good support and contact with the owner from the beginning till we came back home
