PLEASE NOTE:
The price quoted by Airbnb, after you have entered your required dates, is per night for the whole apartment and includes the cleaning fee, fresh bed linen, fresh bathroom towels and basic kitchen and bathroom essentials.

The price quoted by Airbnb excludes the €3 per person per night (2021 prices) 'Kurtaxe' (tourist/city/spa tax) which is payable locally. There is also an additional one off 'research fee' of €1.75 per person per stay. In return you can receive a 'Gastein Card' providing discount on many local transport and leisure facilities. Guests are required to register/pay at the Bad Gastein 'Gemeindeamt' (the community office at the top of town) at the start of their stay. This is a local government legal requirement.

The property is built on a slope and there are a number of steps to gain access so it is not suitable for guests with limited mobility.

The central heating is supplied to the apartment via a 'community' heating system which supplies most properties in the area. During the Summer this system is switched off, therefore central heating is not available in the apartment during the summer months.

Guest access
Guests have access to all rooms, balconies and communal garden areas.

Free wireless internet.

Free cable/internet TV.

Free gated undercover private parking space.

Hi, I’m Richard from Scotland and I'm married to Birgit from Austria. We live mainly by the sea in Cornwall, UK, but also love spending time in the Scottish and Austrian mountains. Amongst other things we both enjoy: walking/hiking, sailing, swimming, surfing, golf, tennis, skiing, snowboarding, good food/drink/atmosphere, music, nature and architecture/design. We have spent much of the last 5 years renovating two harbour view properties in Falmouth Cornwall and a fab alpine loft apartment in the historic ski and spa town of Bad Gastein in the Austrian Alps. We hope you enjoy Cornwall and/or Austria as much as we do. Best regards, R&B
