Total relaxation guaranteed

  • 5 of 5

It was absolute total relaxation guaranteed; the owner wrote it in the description and it was not one word too much!

The house is beautiful with big terrace and indeed spectacular view. Inside lots of space and attention has been put on every possible detail. Ericka who was introducing us to the house and the surrounding was very caring and gave very useful information also about where to go.

Hungary was new to us but we love it and the house and the people were definitely a big factor in this. We recommend it very much! Thank you Keith and Ericka!

Schöne Tage bei Keith in Balatonfüred

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau, unsere 6 Freunde und ich hatten auch in diesem Sommer wieder ein paar sehr schöne Tage bei Keith in Balatofüred. Wir waren bereits das vierte Mal dort. Das Haus war in einem sehr guten Zustand, sauber und gepflegt und der Service war prima. Wir sind Fahradfahrer und haben den Balaton umrundet, war toll. Wir würen das Objekt jederzeit weiterempfehlen, es bietet viele Annehmlichkeiten und der Blick auf und über den Balaton ist spektakulär. Die Gegend am Balaton mögen wir sowieso.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We have been there as a 3 generation family (6 adults plus one little child). The Internet description already promised a large villa but on our arrival we were impressed. Beyond the bedrooms and the large living room there is space enough for everyone to find privacy. The owner gave a detailed instruction to all the facitlities (TVs, pool, alarm, gates, etc.) and recommended nearby restaurants. Our first choice was Söptei Pince in about 10 min walking distance. You find everything you need for your stay, even a filled gas bottle for the BBQ. A small shop is there in walking distance and it's a 5 min drive to get to a big SPAR store. Also Balatonfüred center is away only less than 10 min drive. The big difference to all other vacation domicils we have been before is that you immediately feel at home as the villa is full of private things. If we ever will go to this area again we will try to stay in this villa. We can fully recommend this property without any exception.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write the review, the satisfaction comfort and well being of our guests is our ultimate aim, your appreciation makes all our hard work worth while, the villa comes with absolutely everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday, we are continually striving each year to improve the quality and facilities at the villa and for next year we have a new large games room with pool table, dart board, lounge area/bar and large flat screen TV with sports channels. A true home from home offering the best overall private holiday villa experience possible. It would be a pleasure to have your family stay at the villa again, hope to see you soon.

Fantastic accommodation with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Very high quality accommodation with everything as described in the booking details. Clean, comfortable and very well maintained. Keith and Erica are the perfect hosts and went out of their way to assist us in planning our holiday and making us comfortable once we arrived. Wireless internet quality very strong and without interruption. The villa was very well fitted out with everything a "happy camper" could possibly dream of. The hydropool was something else! Some excellent local restaurants and wineries within easy walking distance.

We'd live here all year 'round...

  • 5 of 5

Keith and Erika's home was the best vacation rental that we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in some lovely properties throughout Europe and the US. The home is very clean, well laid out, and has a beautiful view across the expanse of Lake Balaton. The conveniences are modern, and there were bonuses that we weren't expecting, like the Nespresso machine. The yard is large with covered outdoor dining, grassy areas with fruit trees (that you're allowed to pick and enjoy), a lawn for badminton, the exercise hottub, and plenty of parking. The home is in the perfect location, in that the area has a rural feel, but you are so close to conveniences. It's easy to walk to a local shop for groceries, a restaurant in a vineyard, a restaurant in the woods above, and many walks for exercise. Our family of two adults and six children had a fantastic time exploring all of what Hungary has to offer - it was our first visit. We went to castle ruins, the lake for swimming, palaces, vineyards, cathedrals, museums, ferried to the other side of the lake, and drove to both Vienna and Budapest. The drive to Budapest is easy and takes about 2 1/2 hours. Keith and Erika are very gracious - they seem to have a natural gift of making you feel as though you are old time friends of theirs but they never intrude. We really had a perfect vacation, and fell in love with the Hungarians and their culture. We were thrilled with the home, and just looking at pictures of it, makes us want to return tomorrow...

No speed boats or jet skis allowed, safe and tranquil. How it should be. Fured is where the Habsburg Royal families had their Summer Palaces and is the best part of the Lake with the most going on and all nearby.,
