We are Heike and Guenther and live with our children, Sophia and Simon at the most beautiful place in the world: Dafins. High above the Rhine Valley we run a communication and journalism office. Our passion is our vacation paradise Big Sky Austria for guests from around the world who share the same high expectations about relaxing holidays in a luxurious environment. In the coming years we will build three additional luxury residences to meet the increasing demand from around the world. So we offer the opportunity to participate in this attractive concept. Just ask us.

Heike Waiblinger purchased this villa in 1985

The origins of the main house dates back to the 50s of the last century. Gradually the former landlady built-up the farmhouse to the inn 'Happy panoramic view' with 25 small guest-rooms. 1985 Günther acquired the old house and operated initially a jazz and blues cafe. In 2002 together we started new plans for the traditional building. After a new terrace-building was not wanted by the community, we started in 2005 to expand the first apartment. With much love and patience the following two years we rebuilt out of the old barn todays' 'Star Castle'. Two years later, the ground floor was rebuilt with all the luxury into 'Spruces child'. The owner of this feudal apartments were among the first guests and fell spontaneously in love with this beautiful place. Quickly it became clear that for a dream holiday we needed a swimming pool and sauna and for larger groups of guests we needed more space. So we built another building next door. Here are now the spa and fitness area and the two very spacious residences 'Rubys Retreat' and 'Golden Deer'. And today all four residences inspire people. First it is the luxury and the fact that everything is here, from pizza slicer to W-LAN Then the suitability for children and pets. And in addition to that the convenient location right in the heart of Europe. Within only 3 hours you can travel to Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, France and Italy. Lake Constance is close and the mountains around the house are ideal for hiking, skiing, sledding and mountain biking. There is everything here except Hullygully. Mostt fascinating is the spectacular panoramic view of the Rhine Valley and Swiss mountains.

Each residence in 'Big Sky Austria' tells a different story. We have carefully ensured that every residence has its own concept and that all the rooms are created differently. Even each piece of furniture has his own story and all details have been carefully matched. In Rosenresli (in Golden Deer), for example, hangs the wedding painting of Heike's grandmother. In the Old Rock room (Spruces child) the old stone wall has been worked out so that the old house is still tangible. In Star Castle the entire living room was designed so that the jacuzzi could be integrated and Heikes dream kitchen could be fit in. There are countless stories to tell. All residences are fully equipped, not only for cooking but even for decorating your tables. If you need a specific cooking equipment, just ask us. If it is not there already, we will provide it till you arrive.

OUTSTANDING LUXURY HOLIDAY BASE

  • 5 of 5
Well, where do I begin we spent an unforgettable week in Dafins twice!?! This Villa is absolutely fantastic and we all had an amazing holiday! The Villa offer top standards of luxury, spacious, clean and in immaculate order and has everything you could want or need. The views from the Villa are absolutely stunning and in regards to the location up to the mountain it is perfect, and the breathtaking View is out of this world, the Villa has an underground spa with indoor pool (with waves and cool/warm water) and Jacuzzi which is awesome. The actual Villa is in a very peaceful and quiet area but the main center is literally a 5 minute drive away so everything is very accessible. Lots of restaurants, shops - really great fun! Car is a must as Dafins is in the middle of most attractive cities e.g. Munich, Zurich, and Milan. Most journeys to the Villa won't take more than 2-4 hours' drive from those major cities. Now the one person who truly is fantastic is Dr. Frick and his lovely family - I can honestly say he is one of the friendliest, helpful and hospitable person we have ever met. He will organize whatever you want there, even the BD fireworks. Dr. Frick gave us lots of information in regards to nearby attractions; he even took as on a private tour to discover the area and was brilliant in every way! Would recommend this Villa to anyone and definitely will be visiting again and again as it becomes major stop for us on each visit to Austria. Great thing about this Villa is that you will never need to leave. And careful for sure you'll get addicted to it :)
