We were looking for a comfortable base for 3 guys on a short ski-trip. The apartment fitted the bill completely. Comfortable, clean and really well equipped - you can clearly tell that it's... more

Having stayed at the appartment previously I knew what to expect when my family and I arrived. the appartment was clean and well furnished with TV DVD ipod system and a large DVD library for all the family to use.
Comprising of a double bed room and a bunk bed room along with the option of a double bed pull out sofa we were well catered for in the sleeping department.
A small kitchen that is well equiped with pots/pans/cutlery/glasses etc and all the small stuff like salt/pepper oil etc gave us the option of eating in if we wanted but the local restaurants (5 minutes walk away)are so reasonable we didnt feel the need to.
Ample parking for our bus even at this half term week (slopes not busy compared to previous locations).
We will be staying again over the summer for a walking/biking holiday.
This is not a 5 star accomodation with hot tub, mini-bar pool etc but it is clean, safe, warm and in a great location

We spent 17 nights in Maria Alm at the Smiths apartment. The apartment was truly home from home with all of its facilities. Much to my wifes delight, they even have a hairdryer & straighteners. Two less things to pack. The apartment was a leisurely stroll along the river to Maria Alm centre, where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. The weather was an unexpected 80-90 degrees for the duration of our stay & we made the most of it. The village boasts an excellent outdoor swimming pool and for €12 a family of 4 can spend the whole day there.
There are a couple of supermarkets in the village that cater for every need & the Interspar in Saalfelden that has a greater selection.
We stayed at the apartment to celebrate my Wife's 40th birthday & it was definitely a birthday to remember. Plenty of walks and activities to do on the doorstep. Just over an hour away you can visit Salzburg; The Eagles Nest; Krimml Waterfalls & the Grossglochner Hochalpine Pass to name but a few.
Such a beautiful country. We will definitely return. The apartment is such good value for money & very comfortable, cosy and clean. It was so easy to relax after a day out sightseeing.
