Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was a big family of 12 people. Ages from 11 to 82. Having been the organiser for the holiday I was slightly worried it won't fit us all.. but it did! The house accommodated us all very well. It was like stepping into a habitable house full of character and charm. The beds are comfy and wide. The rooms are actually much bigger then they seem in the photos. The outdoor spaces were a joy to explore. It was so peaceful stepping outside the bedroom balcony and hearing the river flow below and seeing the mountains covered with trees in the distance. (we don't have rivers and mountains in Gozo!) The garden was very popular with the children. The young ones played on the swings and badminton while the older ones prepared the campfire. It was the first time in Austria for most of us. We rented a van and visited Mariazell, Prater, Linz, Vienna and a pretty little waterfall just a few minutes by car and 20mins walk away from the house. It was a truly idillic holiday. I'm sure this house is great during the skiing season, but it is also ideal during the spring. The hosts Hanni and Hans were very welcoming full of smiles and helpful local knowledge. They were there when we arrived and returned to see us leave. Highly recommended. Michael

Tolle Tage am Fuße des Ötschers

  • 5 of 5

Süßes Haus, komfortable Einrichtung, netter Garten, außer dem Rauschen der Erlauf nichts zu hören, wunderschöne Gegend, ideal zum Wandern, besonders empfehlenswert an heißen Sommertagen, geeignet auch für nur ein paar Tage Erholung...

Sehr empfehlenswert!

Sich wie zu Hause fühlen

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben im Mai 2010 ein sehr feines, ruhiges Wochenende in diesem Ferienhaus verbracht (4 EW und 4 Kinder zwischen 2 und 6 Jahren) und haben das heimelige Flair sehr geschätzt. Der Vermieter scheint das Haus auch selbst zu nutzen - während alles sauber und funktional ist, ist von einer CD-Sammlung über Kinderspielsachen bis zu einer kleinen Bibliothek auch ein starker persönlicher Touch gegeben. In der warmen, urigen Küche sitzen, im kleinen Studierzimmer nebenan ins Ofenfeuer schauen, durchs eiskalte Wasser im Bach waten oder mit einer Gruppe von FreundInnen und Kind und Kegel am Lagerfeuer einen besonderen Anlass feiern - dafür ist dieser Ort bestens geeignet. Wobei die Nähe des Baches auch einen Nachteil hat - in den unteren Zimmern (d.h. in einem DZ und im Studierraum) riecht es ein wenig muffig, was im Sommer vernachlässigenswert ist, in der kälteren Zeit bzw. für Schimmel-empfindliche Personen aber problematisch sein könnte - evtl. beim Vermieter erkundigen, ob hier inzwischen bereits etwas unternommen wurde. Von der Ausstattung her gibt es 3 getrennte Schlafzimmer (2 DZ oben, eines unten, mit Platz für je 1 Zusatzbett), plus (oben) ein an ein Schlafzimmer anschließendes Durchgangszimmer mit Platz für 3 Personen (bzw. auch gut als Wohnzimmer nutzbar), plus ein kleines Studier/Wohnzimmer neben der Küche (unten), wo auch 1-2 Personen schlafen könnten (dann bleiben einem allerdings nur die Küche - mit großem Küchentisch - und die freie Natur als Gemeinschaftsfläche). Ideal genutzt scheint es mir mit 5-6 Erwachsenen und ein paar kleinen Kindern; zu zweit fühlt sich das Haus wahrscheinlich etwas groß und leer an. Fazit: ein Haus mit Charakter - sympathisch, empfehlenswert!

Owner's Response: Liebe Lili, Danke für diesen ausführlichen Kommentar! Ich kann berichten, dass wir die erwähnten feuchten Stellen mit beginnender Schimmelbildung im Spätsommer 2010 von einem Profi sanieren liessen und somit für die nächsten Jahre hier keine Gefahr besteht. Herzliche Grüsse, Nikolaus Hottenroth
