This lovely apartment has everything you could wish for in a holiday let: spotlessly clean and neat, bright, airy, well equipped, fantastic panoramic view, great heating system (very important forAlpine holiday). There are great walks right from the front door. A good bus service runs close by. Dealing with the owner Kathleen was a pleasure. Kathleen could not have been more helpful.

I went for a ski holiday with a group of friends and stayed in Kathleen's flat for a week; I would highly recommend. The accommodation was very nice, a short walk from the ski bus and a perfect place to stay with a group of four. Kathleen was fantastic. She called ahead of time to talk about traveling logistics, restaurant recommendations, and suggestions for things to do in town. She left chocolate and wine for our arrival.

Wonderful, wonderful stay - we had a very nice holiday and really enjoyed staying in Kathleen's flat. Would recommend, and would return!

A great mid term break with 3 energetic teens, they were on the slopes all day, getting the bus to the ski lifts with them I got my dose of fresh alpine air exploring Bad Gastein stopping off for a hot chocolate on my way back.
The Apartment was home away from home, it had everything and more to make this holiday unforgettable for the young and their not so young aunt.

“Cosy and friendly appartment”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

Our family has spent a long weekend in this appartment for a short skiing break. All the arrangments with Kathleen, the owner, were smooth and easy prior to arrival. We have received detailed information pack prior to our trip which was very helpful for finding the place and handling the equipment in the appartment. On our arrival we met with the house manager who managed to get us parking place in the garage that belongs to the appartments. It made it easier for carrying our stuff into and from the appartment and our car was safe.
The appartment is specious enough, we found all the equipment we could need to feel comfortable and felt like at home. There is a beautiful view to the valley from the wide window. The appartment is not far from the centre of Bad Gastein too.
I would only have one recommendation: darker curtain in the bedroom downstairs which would stop the light from the lamps outside.
We preferred to use our car to get to the ski lifts as we did not want to squeeze with other people in the ski bus plus it gave us more freedom.
We have been in Gasteinertal for the third time. What we like on this valley is that you have five different ski resorts in the valley so you can ski in a different place each day. You can relax in one of the two great water parks which is good for your tired body after a day on slopes.
It was very relaxed break in the very nice appartment. I can recommend this to other people and would consider to stay there again if we are back in the valley in the future.

Thank you Martin,
we really appreciate your lovely review and are thrilled you enjoyed our place. Thank you for the recommendation about the curtains downstairs, We had decided on that material to keep the place feeling light and airy, we have never had this question arise before and we will certainly take this on board and review it again. We would love to host your family on your next trip, and I do agree with you Gastein IS something special. Kathleen

“Great ski holiday”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

Four of us had a 5 night stay in January, and had a great time skiing.
We took a taxi from the airport and were dropped off outside the apartment block. The apartment was easy to find from the directions sent. We did meet the owner and was made to feel very welcome, even making us a cup of tea before leaving.

The apartment is well equipped with more than enough space for the 4 of us. We cooked a couple of times, and found everything we needed to hand. Beds are comfy, and that includes the pull out bed in the lounge. The shower works well, and there is also an additional separate toilet.

Must not forget to add:- the views from the apartment are amazing!

The location is outside of the centre of town, but getting to the centre of Bad Gastein, and the main slopes is easy by bus.
To catch the bus; it stops outside the detached yellow house about 100m up the hill from the apartment block. It's worth noting that there is no bus stop or sign to suggest it's a bus stop, but we found that a bus would turn up at the hour and half past. We never managed to get the bus back to the apartment, but saw them pass us as we usually walked back, via a bar of some description.

We did walk up to the ski lifts from the apartment the first day. and it is a trek; don't forget though you are in the mountains! Just use the bus, it's included in the lift pass. It's in the centre of town (it's behind the train station),

The skiing was great in BG and it's surrounding areas, it's even worth checking out Graukogal for half day (or full if you like it), It has 4 runs and we found that we almost had it to ourselves.

The centre of BG has plenty of bars and restaurants, and you can soon sniff them out. We can also recommend the kebab shop a few metres down the hill from the First Descent rental shop; you need to put those calories back after a hard day on the slopes.

We also tried the restaurant which is less than 5 minutes up the hill from the apartment, just after you pass the church, it's on the left hand side. We all had the pizzas, which went down well with a couple of beers.

We have just returned from a 9 day break at this apartment. The helpfulness and courtesy of the owner was exceptional. The apartment is as described, cosy,compact.clean and the view is simply stunning. If you enjoy outdoor activities then this is an ideal base. All is at your finger tips from gentle river walks to the most demanding of mountain hikes. As Badgastein is a mountain ski retreat, which is important to remember, there are some steep hills to overcome when walking to bars/restaurants/shops etc.Our experience of eating out in the area is limited as we made full use of the galley kitchen in the apartment. There is a very large eurospar on the top level of the town, which is about 100 metres from the railway station, and provides a great selection of product. A car is important,and this is advised by the owners, to fully appreciate the area and the neighbouring valleys. Overall a wonderful, wonderful stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to either family or friends.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so lad you enjoyed our "little piece of heaven. Glad you took us up on the suggestion of a car - especially as you can then explore the other valleys surrounding Bad Gastein. In the winter it is not as necessary if you are skiing as the Ski bus stops right outside the complex.
