About This Listing
Our appartment is in the first floor of an traditional tyrolean house in the middle of the small village Thaur which is close to Innsbruck and close to the skiing areas around Innsbruck. In summer it is the perfect place to start hicking tours to the mountains. The appartment is friendly with a terrasse to the south and the possibility to make BBQ.
The next bus stop to the city Innsbruck is 2 minutes to walk.
There is a bakery, a butcher, a small grocery store and a pharmacy in range to the house.
There's not much to say - just keep clean and stay friendly ;o)
Estuvimos tres noches en la casa. Claudia nos recibió genial y es encantadora, el pueblecito donde está la casa es precioso, y está a unos 15 minutos en coche del centro de Innsbruck. El apartamento está muy bien, está en la primera planta de la casa. La zona que nosotros ocupamos era un salón amplio, un dormitorio espacioso con una terraza preciosa con vistas a las montañas, y en medio la cocina, que tenia todo lo necesario.
Realmente la descripcion de la casa no es al 100% correcta ya que no se trata de toda la propiedad, sino una parte de una planta que está reformada como si fuera un apartamento, con su puerta cerrada con llave. Pero, por ejemplo, el baño estaba fuera del apartamento, con lo cual se pierde un poco de la intimidad que buscas. Al entrar en la casa entras por la puerta principal y se pasa por en medio de la casa de la propietaria para subir a tu apartamento.
Exponemos esto no porque fuera un problema para nosotros, ya que lo habíamos leído en otros comentarios y ya íbamos avisados, y ademas, la propietaria (que es la suegra de Claudia) estaba de vacaciones y estuvimos todos los días solos en la casa. Lo queríamos explicar para que los futuros huéspedes conozcan la situación de la casa.
We had a great stay at Claudia's place, the house is very nice, clean, had everything we needed. The description of the listing is accurate and now there also is Wifi.
Claudia's mother in law warmly welcomed us and gave us information about the Easter festivities in the neighbourhood.
The place itself is well furnished, beds are comfortable, kitchen well equipped. The village of Thaur is beautiful and not far from Innsbruck, close by Hall in Tirol and lots of other places worth visiting.
We would definitely come back and stay again!
Wir bedanken uns für den reibungslosen Ablauf, alles wie beschrieben, saubere und großzügige Unterkunft! Auf jeden Fall zum Weiterempfehlen und gerne auch zum wieder buchen!
Great apartment with a very friendly host, something to keep in mind is the apartment has a shared entrance with the host's home and also no wifi connection.
This listing was terribly inaccurate and left our family in an awkward situation.
To begin with there are only 4 beds, not 5. In addition, there is a regular sofa (not a pull-out), that is being counted as a fifth bed. All of the beds are truly single beds and even if pushed together leave a large gap between them due to the sideboards.
The apartment only has 1 bathroom, not 1.5. After raising concerns about the ad, this host insisted that a bathroom that includes a toilet equals one and a half bathrooms???
Despite snow on the mountain tops, we were told that it wasn't yet cold enough to turn on the heat in the house and so we were given a couple of space heaters. After explaining to Claudia's mother-in-law that we are from a very warm climate and were very cold, she did turn on the heat.
At my pressing, I believe the advertisement has been slightly altered, as the apartment also had no washing machine as had been listed as an amenity.
Finally, this really should be listed as a shared space. The apartment is not self-contained. It is on the second floor of a large house. Claudia's mother in law, who is very nice, lives on the ground floor and you enter thru her front door and walk thru her house. The apartment is just several rooms (but not all rooms) on the second floor. One bedroom, the kitchen, and the living room are together, but you must leave them and walk thru the hallways to get to the other bedroom or to the bathroom. Then there is the stairway that leads to the next floor up in the house. It wasn't particularly private, and was actively being smoked in by someone (we couldn't tell if it was residents or guests) while we were there.
It was generally clean, with the exception of the kitchen floor which needed a good mopping. We had a rental car, but used the bus once and it was very easy. Because there is no WiFi, we couldn't reach the host during our stay. We worked with her mother in law regarding some of the problems and she was able to allow us to use a washing machine in the cellar and get some heat in the apartment.
We met friends from Berlin here before we travelled onwards. They drove their car - we arrived by public transport. This apartment is wonderful if you have your own transport but could be a little isolating if you depend on public transport to any areas other than Innesbruk.
It is large - 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4 easily), kitchen, separate dining and lounge room, bathroom, foyer, and outside terrace. The entry is a shared entry with a family member of Claudias. It was immaculately clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It is almost opposite a marvellous "providore" with the best sausages/wurst ever. The Impreis supermarket is about a 15 minute walk or take your car. If you want a friendly, homely village stay, with privacy, this apartment is for you.
If you have the chance to have a chat and a wine with Claudia's mother-in-law downstairs listen up! What an interesting and lively person! We so enjoyed our time here and thoroughly recommend it.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans l'appartement de Claudia. L'appartement correspond tout à fait à la description faite : il est parfait pour une famille de 5 personnes ; spacieux, confortable, propre. Il y a un bus à 3 minutes qui nous emmène à Innsbruck directement ; c'est très pratique. Nous sommes très contents de notre séjour.
