I spent months looking at listings on HomeAway before deciding on this one. We were not disappointed. The host, Michael, is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, and speaks English perfectly. This is a truly amazing house in a beautiful location. I wish I could upload the picture I took from a hike up the road; it looks for all the world like a painting. But the house is not just beautiful (and beautifully decorated inside), it is also comfortable, clean and functional. It has a new kitchen with a lovely induction cooktop and a modern bathroom that opens onto a deck. The deck turned out to be our favorite spot, as the house is positioned so that there is sunshine on the deck from around 10AM until sunset. The sunsets here are spectacular! At night, there is a perfect view of the stars. We chose this location because it is halfway between Vienna and Salzburg, being a short drive from the A1 but far enough away from everything that it is pleasant and quiet at all times. The upstairs room is tricked out with an entertainment system with great sound and a large screen for watching movies. The beds are comfortable; I slept like a child. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Micheal, for letting us stay -- we have now wonderful memories and are sad that vacation is over!
