Beautiful home in the Austrian countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at this countryside home. We loved the views from the family room looking out at the mountains. Returning to the vacation home at the end of a busy touring day was very relaxing and peaceful. Both Lorrie and Joy (business partners), were very informative and available. The location was great for a day in Hallstatt, Hallein salt mines, Salzburg etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Thank you!

Breathtaking Views, Convenient to Salzburg!

  • 5 of 5

We were so incredibly pleased with our stay in this home at the end of summer. We came as a family of four (two adult couples) with plans to see all of the major sites in the area, but it was beginning to get a bit cool outside. The view from the sitting room inside the house was so truly unparalleled that we often found ourselves lingering in the home much longer than planned to read, and have some wine or coffee and just relax. It was exactly what we were hoping for when we booked.

The house is impeccably cleaned and decorated, and has a stocked kitchen with all the basic nonperishables, so we didn't have to buy a lot at the nearby Spar market in Hallein.

When we did compel ourselves to make it out to see the sites, it was an easy (and quite scenic drive!) to all of my favorite spots to visit in the area: Salzburg, Berchtesgaden, and Werfen, to name a few. These are all great and practical day trips from the house (but you might want to spend at least two separate days in Salzburg to make sure you see everything!).

The hosts were so friendly, responsive and gracious. We enlisted the caretaker, Joy's help on several occasions (she lives next door). We also genuinely appreciated the local guide Lorrie had prepared that outlined restaurants in the area. The quaint town of Hallein is just a 10 minute drive away, and has many restaurants that we thoroughly enjoyed.

We would definitely come back again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful home, well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of two couples and two children.

Our hosts (who live next door) were gracious and helpful.

The house had a good stereo system, reliable wifi, every kitchen gadget and appliance we needed. In addition the bathroom had been supplied with all the little things a traveller may need, like shampoo, soap, moisturizer, etc. Like a hotel.

The house was extremely clean when we arrived.

The house is on a street with very few other houses, mostly fields where we always saw a cat or two on the prowl for critters.

Each bedroom had lots of storage and good lighting for reading.

The view from the living room was glorious and overall, it was very pleasant to lounge about.

A very large SPAR supermarket was about a 5 to 10 minute drive away.

We had a great day at the Werfen Ice Cave and do visit the adorable town of Hallstadt.

Great Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised , Clean and stocked with the basics to get started. Joy the co owner was only there for our arrival but both were available to contact via e-mail or phone if we had questions, allowing for time differences. My relatives live in the town of Adnet and they were impressed with the house and believe me if you know any Austrians that is saying

something . My daughter skyped a video tour to her friend back home as well I would recommend this house and we will stay here again if available . If you travel here in the winter get a front or all wheel drive car!! We had 20 inches of snow over New Years . There are some good restaurants in the area we liked the Mexican restaurant Topeto they also have take out and the Sefelsmuhle is a local hang out, there are 3 main grocery stores in between the circles but the Sparr seems to be the local favorite.

Thank you Lorrie and Joy for a great rental experience

Wow, that view is something!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, that view is something, could hardly take my eyes off it.

Like others who have reviewed the property, we found the welcome wonderful Joy showed us around and had put milk, fruit juice, eggs and butter in the fridge along with bread and fruit which was great as we arrived after the shops shut and they were not open on Sundays. However my husband found the petrol station which also sells beer wine and some breakfast cereals....

The house was clean and well maintained. Plenty of everything.

Lorrie was quick to answer questions and sent me a fantastic list of places to visit and places to stop on our drive from Vienna. So helpful even before we left the UK. Joy was great to have next door, my oldest son loved playing the odd game of football with her son - thanks! What was lovely was having her next door, but if you didn't need her you'd not know she was there! We also had a fab afternoon at the local swimming pool, thanks again for the directions.

I have already told all my friends about this wonderful place, not only is the houses location fantastic for sitting and looking out the window but sooo many places to visit within a short drive. Ice caves, salt mine, summer tobogganing to name but a few. I can not express how much fun we had and I am sure this is partly due to Lorrie and Joy. Thanks.

Great location, accommodations, and management

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed many places all over Europe but this may have been one of my favorites. The view is fantastic from the large living room and with a roaring fire and a few drinks you can bet this will be your hang out for most evenings! We were so content chatting by the fireplace that the TV did not go on once during our entire stay. The house is well stocked with many of the basic necessities for your stay and Joy is a great onsite liaison for making sure you have every thing you need without being intrusive. The town of Hallien offers several grocery store options (recommend Interspar) and has a lovely old section for strolling through shops and grabbing a drink. The owner, Lorrie, is happy to answer any questions you have prior to arrival which helps make the stay even more pleasant. The proximity to Salzburg and the many other things there are to do in this area ultimately made this selection a no-brainer. I look forward to having the opportunity to stay here again sometime in the future!
