Nice apartment, bad experience
This property was clean and comfortable. It is located at the “west” end of Garmisch-Partenkirchen approximately 5 minutes (by car) from the main tourist area of the town. It has a nice view of the Alps. Note that the 3rd bedroom is located off the common building hallway, separate from the actual apartment. That was not an issue for us, but could be if you plan on having young children use that room.
However, I would recommend looking elsewhere given the bad experience we had regarding final payment. After wiring a deposit to the property owner, we received an e-mail stating our deposit had been received and listing the final amount that was due in cash before our departure from the property. When we went to checkout at the end of our stay with said amount of cash in hand, the owner informed us that the amount due was in fact more than what was stated in her e-mail. Her bank had charged her a fee to accept our wire transfer and she insisted that we must also pay that fee. We argued that we had paid a (substantial) fee on our end to send the wire transfer and that we did not believe we should also have to pay her bank’s fee to her, especially given that she had not mentioned it in her e-mail. The property owner would not relent and became upset with us for our objection.
