“... This is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the stunning Höchkonig area. The apartment was ideal for our family of four. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Jerome and Alison are wonderful hosts. The kids LOVED the park across the street from the home. It was complete with a zip line and an awesome slide down a huge hill. Terrific to have it so close. We also made use of the Höchkonig card they provided. It gave us access to pools, chairlifts, a mountain roller coaster and more all free. Exceptional! This place is a must! We will we could spend more time there! It is also located in the village and is walking distance to shops and fabulous restaurants.”
“... Just back from our annual ski break in Austria at Haus Schneeberg, and I cannot recommend this place enough. It has everything you could dream of for a winter holiday, and summer holiday too. The hosts are second to none, and two of the most loveliest people I’ve ever met, and nothing is too much. Take yourself and your family to this winter wonderland, you will not be disappointed! Booked again for next year, can’t wait! Thanks Alison and Jerome, see you soon!”
