About this listing
Enjoy a comfy vacation in our cosy & colorful guest room, including your very own bathroom with full amenities.
We are close to Gmunden's city center, a scenic town on a beautiful lake in the mountains in the heart of Austria.
We are a young international family who lives close to downtown Gmunden - a beautiful city in the Austrian Salzkammergut region.
Our house is colorful and quirky (so are we), we have a nice little garden, free internet access and free parking spots nearby.
Families are more than welcome to stay.
We offer a pretty guest room including a queen size bed, a couch, and a baby bed, if necessary. Guests have their own bathroom incl. amenities as well.
Interaction with Guests
We love having people over and sharing our beautiful place. However, we are hosts, no entertainers: we will gladly give you advise on where to go and what to do, but under normal circumstances we will not have time to hang out or show you round.
We have two toddlers; they are well-mannered and fluent in German and English, but still kids, which means you should be fine with little people running around.
Within a ten minute walk you can access the city center, the river, lake Traunsee, and the tram station (with access to the train station); the area also offers various hills and mountains for hiking and skiing.
Gmunden is located in the heart of Austria and you can easily tour Austria from here. The train connections to the top places are as good as the car route via the A1.
Distances: Salzburg, Linz or Hallstatt (1 hour),
Vienna (2 hours),
Innsbruck, Graz (3-4 hours)
We are a perfect stop between Salzburg and Vienna. If you get the chance, though, you should definitely check out Gmunden's surroundings and Hallstatt (No. 2 of Austria's top tourist attractions).
Gmunden is well connected, and trains from any direction come and go once an hour.
The tram schedule is linked to the train's, its station is in the city center (and a fifteen minute walk from our house).
***Currently there is a construction site at the train station, wherefore we recommend a taxi to our house.***
During the week there are local buses, and in the peek season in the summer, there are extra hiking buses to the mountains on the lake.
***For your individual schedule please check Google Maps or the Austrian public transport ÖBB.***
Other Things to Note
Due to our full-time jobs and the high guest frequency our check-in/check-out is rather strict. However, we are more flexible on weekends and when we are not fully booked: therefore you are more than welcome to double-check with us any time!
We are easy going and trying to make you feel as at home as possible. We will hand you a key and you are most certainly free to come and go as you please. Since one of our cars is parked in a garage nearby, you are more than welcome to park in front of the house.
We usually occupy the kitchen from 7 to 8 am and 6.30 to 7.30 pm, and due to our jobs and the kids' routine we are not so flexible on that.
About the Host, Monika
I have always loved to travel, and even with our two toddlers we keep going as much as possible. However, since family is holding back a little, I love having people over and listen to their stories .. and keep the travelling spark alive * .
