Spacious and comfortable house in attractive area.

  • 5 of 5

Five of us spent a most enjoyable few days at the Kraxlhuette. There was plenty of space, the beds were comfortable and the showers excellent. The village pub,Stiller Fritz, is 10 minutes walk away and does good hearty meals. There is plenty to do in the Saxon Switzerland. Our only gripe was that the internet worked intermittently.

Die Kraxlhütte ist eine klare Empfehlung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist geräumig und stilvoll-gemütlich eingerichtet. Für die Frühstücksversorgung ist ein kleiner Laden nur wenige hundert Meter entfernt.

Durch die gute Lage sind viele Ziele zu Fuß erreichbar. Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen - allen 8 Personen hat es sehr gut gefallen.

Jetzt kommt noch ein wenig Jammern auf hohem Niveau:

Der Straßenverkehr und eine Baustelle schräg gegenüber haben immer wieder mal (ab ca. 7:00 Uhr) als Wecker gewirkt.

Der Internet-Zugang über das WLAN war manchmal "wackelig".

Fazit: Die Kraxlhütte ist eine klare Empfehlung! Kein Ferienhaus war bisher besser ausgestattet.

Tolles Ferienhaus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus. Es gibt absolut nichts zu bemängeln. Tolle Einrichtung im Haus. Es fehlt an nichts. Geschirr, Besteck, Gläser usw. alles mehr als ausreichend vorhanden. Sehr geräumig. Tolle Sonnenterrasse mit Grill.

Wir haben den Urlaub sehr genossen. Alle waren sehr begeistert.

Das Haus ist wirklich sehr zu empfehlen.

Super eingerichtetes Haus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Uns allen (8 Leute von 13 - 56 J.) hat es sehr gut in der Kraxlhütte gefallen. Das Haus ist für Ausflüge in der sächsichen Schweiz wirklich ideal gelegen (neben den üblichen Zielen unbedingt zu empfehlen ist eine Runde durchs Polenztal zur Brandbaude hinauf, vom Haus aus fußläufig machbar!). Die Einrichtung des Hauses ist sehr geschmackvoll und großzügig (endlich mal genug Geschirr, so dass man nicht nach jedem Essen eine Spülmaschine anstellen muss), der Garten liebevoll angelegt (und deutlich schöner als auf den Fotos zu sehen). Wenn wir etwas zu bekritteln hätten, dann lediglich, dass die Waschmaschine nicht zur Ausstattung des Hauses dazu gehört. Auf Nachfrage beim Vermieter ließ sich dafür aber schnell eine einvernehmliche Lösung finden.

Und für die, die etwas geräuschempfindlicher sind, sei noch angemerkt, dass das Haus doch recht nah an einer etwas befahreneren Staße gelegen ist und 2 der 4 Schlafzimmer zur Straße hin liegen. Also eher etwas für die Frühaufsteher, die sich dadurch dann nicht gestört fühlen.
