About the owner: My wife and I and our two children live in Ireland. Having been to Zell a number of times in Winter, we decided to stay for a 3 week summer holiday (in this house) and fell in love with the place. We bought a new apartment in Zell in 2007 and have recently bought this house. Both are unusual in that they are spacious 3 bed properties right in the centre of Zell. Both are treated as our home away from home. We stay in our house or apartment at different times of the year.
Whether you are looking for a quiet holiday or some vigorous hill walking or activities on the lake, or simply want guaranteed access to year round skiing (with the Kaprun glacier only 5kms away), Zell should be able to meet your needs. From numerous restaurants to luxury hotels, Zell is what you make of it. An old town (they call it a city) with lots of charm and plenty of ways to spend your money whether your budget is large or small.

About Michael O'Hara
Our family live in in Ireland. Having been to Zell am See a number of times in winter, we decided to stay for a 3 week summer holiday (in what is now our house). We fell in love with the place and bought a duplex penthouse new in 2007. We subsequently bought the house we had stayed in during our first visit. Both are unusual in that they are spacious 3 bed properties right in the centre of Zell am See. Both are treated as our home away from home. We stay in our house and apartment at different times of the year. My wife and I love to travel and have been fortunate to have visited lots of places. We try to provide our guests with the sort of experience we look for when on holidays.
Michael O'Hara purchased this House in 2010
Why Michael O'Hara chose Schmitten
Because it is a spacious bright house right in the centre of Zell. Possibly the only private house available to rent in the centre of Zell
What makes this House unique
One of very few houses for rent in Zell A house you can live in - much better than a pokey 30 to 40 square metres apartment.

Wonderful Summer Week in Zell am See
Cannot praise this property enough!!! The house has everything and more than anyone can expect in a rental property. Clean, organised, bright and easy. My teenagers were happy with the big TV and wifi. My husband was happy never having to search for a parking spot. Being sports enthusiasts the washer and dryer were a life saver. The convenient location was great. Just a quick walk to the lake or into town. Zell am See is a very easy town with all services, and a starting point to activities in the mountains or on the lake. The communications with the owners was easy, and they worked with us on anything we needed with fast responses. They even provided a detailed booklet with all the information we needed. We celebrated our 21 wedding anniversary at nearby Schloss Prielau. Amazing service and wonderful and creative food. Service was great all over Zell am See. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in Zell am See. Do not even hesitate for a minute!
Delighted you had a great time in our home. See you next year.
House in Zell am Zee
A perfect holiday house to rent - plenty of space and character, and comfortable for a large family. The location is fantastic - a very short walk to the lake, and also to supermarket, ice rink and ski lifts.
There are lovely activities for all ages of children - particular hits were summer tobogganing at Saalfelden, the adventure trail high on the mountain above Zell, and the lido by the lake. A walk on the glacier by Grossglockner was an unforgettable experience (as was the drive to get there).
Visit Easter 2011to Zell am See
Our visit to the house in Zell was excellent. The house was well positioned in a quiet road two minutes from the lake side and childrens summer park and two minutes from the main shopping area and restaurants.
The house matched up to the description and was in excellent condition and immculately clean.It is a really good size for a family of four as we were but equally is roomy enough for more people.
Zell is a lovely place - very pretty and has reasonable restaurants.
Customer service was fine - all worked as planned and communication was good.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend this property to future holiday makers.
Luxury Christmas in Zell am See
We celebrated Christmas 2010 in the O'Haras beautiful house in Zell am See and we can highly recommend it. The house was just perfect both for our three children and their grand parents for a weeks holiday in the snow. Lots of space for 7 persons and very nicely furnished with a personal touch and a quality you will rarely find even in high end holiday appartments. We all profited from the perfect location in the centre of the city and a few minutes walk from the skilifts. Zell am See is a beautiful place with excellent opportunities for all kinds of leisure activities.
De woning is perfect gelegen: op loopaftand van de skilift CityExpress, de skibus (naar Schmittenhohe), het bruizende centrum (tijdens de carnavalsvakantie) en zeer dicht bij het meer. De woning is van vele gemakken voorzien; vaatwasmachine, oven, wasmachine, droger, voldoende servies. Maar ook fijne bedden en prima dekbedden.
We waren met 4 volwassen en 4 jonge kinderen (2, 4, 6 en 8 jaar). Een tophuis!
I'm delighted you had a great time staying in our home. Hopefully we will see you again next year. Michael
