"Very comfortable, spacious apartment in easy reach of Scheffau and Ellmau ski areas"
We stayed in the apartment with 2 adults and 4 kids. It is comfortable with plenty of space in the bathrooms and common area. The real fire is a plus on cold days. There's a drying room in a nearby block for ski gear. The main Scheffau lifts are a 15/20 min walk/5 min drive and Ellmau is a 10 min drive.
Suzanne and Howard are very welcoming and happy to help in any way they can.

"Great quality apartment, helpful and attentive owners. Excellent."
We stayed at this apartment during New Year 2012. Prior to arriving, Suzanne, the owner was very helpful and attentive, making sure we had all of the information we would need about the apartment and the area to plan our trip. The apartment itself was of a high standard throughout and was perfect for our needs. It comfortably slept 8 people (with two large double rooms, one loft room and one bunk bed room) and the communal space was great for eating and socialising together. The apartment was impeccably clean, with clean linen and towels provided. The views of the wilder kaiser mountains from the balconies of the apartment were stunning.
Our only minor quibble was the distance the apartment is from the gondola station- a fifteen minute walk, which can be tiresome following a day of skiing. There is a ski bus if you wish to use that, but we didn't bother. It's also a fair distance (30 min walk) from the supermarket in Scheffau, so it's advisable to try and catch a bus when you're shopping. That said, the walks are not difficult and the views are amazing, so we didn't find them too much of a chore. For the price of this apartment, we also feel the walk fits in with the overall value for money, so don't let this put you off.
All in all, if you're looking for a great value, high quality place to stay for a group, this is perfect - we would definitely return!
