I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in the Salzkammergut, and found our property a clean and inexpensive base. I'm sorry that you did not find the general store, bakery and butcher's which are on the main road near the bank and restaurant, a few hundred metres away.
We offer two properties. The Apartment is the larger of the two with a separate bedroom and large living room. The Studio, which you rented, does not have a fixed bed because by its very nature it is a one-room apartment with double and single sofabeds.
We will review the contents of the kitchen, although it is possible that the previous guests, who left just before you arrived and rented both properties, moved some of the items into the other apartment. I have asked the housekeeper to check more thoroughly in the future.
Many thanks for your stay and comments.
