NEWLY REFURBISHED HOLIDAY HOUSE FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS OR GROUPS
Balatonudvari House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedroom detached house to accommodate 10 at Lake Balaton North
With its white-washed walls, the recently refurbished house with lake views is contemporary in style and delightfully simple, yet well-equipped. It is arranged over three floors. There are tiled floors on the ground floor, and laminate floor on the first and second floor. On the ground floor there is a living and dining room (suitable seating for 10 people), a kitchen, a storage room, a toilet and a bathroom, doors lead to the garden through a terrace with table and chairs. From the living room stairs lead up to the first floor where there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom (2 bedrooms with double beds, 1 bedroom with a double and a single bed). The middle bedroom has an access to a balcony. The 4th bedroom (with a double and single bed) and a bathroom is found on the second floor.
We spent two weeks in this beautiful holiday house in july 2011. We were 5 adults + 1 year old baby. There was plenty of room for all of us in this stylish house; a big dinner table (also outside), three bathrooms and also rather big living room area. Kitchen was quite basic but good enough, no dishwasher though... House stayed really cool inside, all though it was hot weather that time. Keeping the doors shut, the house stayed like there was air conditioning...at least first two floors. Upper bedroom was pretty hot.
Landlady was really nice and helpful. She organized all what we asked for, baby bed, highchair, and even toys for the baby ;)
Outside the house, just on the other side of the road, there is a small local food store, where you can find warm bread in the early morning! Nice next door neighbour sels sheep skin products, cool slippers ;) There is also a nice restaurant 400 meters away, that serves good basic hungarian dishes at reasonable price and smile on their faces!
There is space only for a one car in the front yard, but we didn´t have any problems keeping the other car outside the house. I would say the trafic, which was not too bad, was still the only minus detail in this place. The main road that goes around the Lake Balaton is just about 50 meters away.
We were really happy staying in this house! Car was good to have to move around easily and explore this beautiful end of world! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we hope to welcome you in our holiday home one day in the future!
This house was excellent for a family holiday in the area. It was very clean with lots of towels and beds. We were greeted with a lovely welcome by the owners who explained everything very well and in good english. There were a number of restaurants within walking distance as well as a lovely beach area with enclosed play area which had lots of kids activities and shade during what was an incredibly warm period (even by Hungarian standards).
The house was very easy to find and the drive from Budapest was simple. There was plenty of shade in the garden and the house was cool even though the weather was so hot.
The kitchen was well kitted out and there was an extra freezer which was very handy. There were plenty of bathrooms , all of which worked very well.
For children the aqua park in the next village was unbeleivable and great value for an all day pass. Generally there was plenty to do particularly in terms of water activities. A car is essential to make the best of the location. Top marks for this house.

Owner's Response: Dear Tom, thank you for your kind words, I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay here. I wish you all the best, and hope to welcome you one day again. Laura
This is a very nice house, which has been carefully refurbished by the owner in good, modern taste (well, IKEA), with comfortable beds and bedding, and fluffy towels. Its main disadvantage is proximity to the main road going round Lake Balaton, which means the sound of cars zooming past is ever present, and that stops the house being truly idyllic.
However, It is spacious and comfortable, lots of bathrooms and a plentiful supply of hot water. Not all holiday homes have such good plumbing! Nice dining tables both inside and outside, where you can enjoy family meals.
The location is excellent - five minutes walk from an adorable beach (pedaloes, windsurfers, canoes and table tennis), and five minutes' drive from the gorgeous Tihany Peninsula. Ten minutes' drive away is Balatonfured, a lovely little town with lots to see and do. You can hire bikes to cycle round the lake. There are some excellent clay tennis courts just up the road, and go-karting too, and a convenience store across the road. From Tihany you can catch the car ferry to Siofok, which is worth a day trip.
All in all, I would highly recommend the house as the owners have done an excellent job on furnishing and equipping it. A few little niggles though - the TV is very far away from the sofa, and it is quite small so difficult to see at that distance. There were no DVDs when we arrived. We left a couple there, to start the library - we've always enjoyed the selection left by previous guests at other holiday lets. There is no washing machine, which meant hand washing smalls and putting up with everything else getting dirty. The cooker is quite old and the oven didn't seem to work at all, which meant that cooking options were quite limited. The tenth bed would really only suit a small child.
If you haven't been to Hungary before, or only to Budapest, I would really recommend it. This is a very beautiful part of the world, and everything is relatively cheap, which means you can relax and indulge yourself. And despite the niggles that I have mentioned, I think the house is extremely good value for money.

Owner's Response: It's nice to hear you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review and your comments, it helps us offering a better service. We try to fulfil our guests expectations, so we replaced the TV with a bigger one, and there is a new stove with oven and a washing machine available. I hope to see you one day again!
Wir verbrachten ein verlängertes Wochenende mit vier Kindern und vier Erwachsenen im Haus.
Wohnraum: Ausreichend Platz für uns alle inkl. eines großen Tisches mit 10 Stühlen
Schlafzimmer: Betten bequem und ausreichend Platz
Küche: Ausstattung hätte etwa besser sein können und die Kühlschränke waren etwas schmutzig
Terrasse: Leider zu wenig Schatten um bei sommerlichen heißen Temperaturen draußen gemütlich zu Frühstücken, ein etwas größerer Schirm wäre toll. Doch sobald die Sonne hinterm Haus verschwindet bietet der große Tisch ausreichend Platz zum Sitzen.
Die Straße hat uns persönlich nicht gestört und zum Seebad haben wir etwa 10 Minuten zu Fuß benötigt.
Alles in allem haben wir eine schöne Zeit verbracht!
