The space

Welcome to my clean and quiet renovated studio apartment in the historic center of Bad Aussee. Great for a small family. It's small and cosy, fully-equipped and has a nice balcony with mountain views.

- Brand new mattresses! New furniture and new layout! -

See ski info below.

The price is for the whole apartment. 35 Euro cash cleaning fee not included in the Airbnb charge. This is normal in Austria.

There's a big bath tub, a clean bathroom, a kitchenette, one bunk bed, 2 brand new single beds with comfortable Hovag mattresses, a dining table, and extra chairs for morning coffee or evening dinner on the balcony.

There are lots of shops, grocery stores, bridges, trails and bus connections nearby.

The must-see village on the water Hallstatt is 2 train stops (3 in the summer), 2 buses, or about a 25 minute drive away. The other 2 beautiful lakes Grundlsee and Altaussee are a five minute drive from Bad Aussee.

It's a great base for mountain tourists of all kinds (adventure and relaxing). Free parking (when full just one euro for a full two days in nearby P5).

Please be ready and willing to access the key via a Realtor Lockbox. If this is a challenge please book elsewhere but almost nobody has difficulty as it is not electronic.

This place can serve as a writing get-a-way, a retreat or a base for outdoor adventure in all 4 seasons!

Experience this studio apartment in the center of the quiet mountain village located at the geographical center of Austria about an hour drive from where the Sound of Music was filmed.

This former 27m2 hotel room on the 2nd floor includes a kitchenette with a stove, refrigerator, dish washer, coffee maker and everything you need for cooking on a stove top.

It's a small place but has a lot to offer. It sleeps 4 (1 bunk bed and two new quality IKEA single beds...best 2 adults and 2 children because the entire place is a former hotel room 27 square meters/ 350 Square feet with the balcony included).

Many families stay here. Please note the €35 cash key and cleaning fee.

Check out the locality which Frommers calls one of the most scenic places in Austria. There are cafes, grocery stores, restaurants, narrow beautiful roads, hand-made lederhosen shops, a park, a golf course, rivers, idyllic bridges, trails, panorama views, spas, and skiing all nearby.

Visit Bergfex for more info on the area for summer and winter activities. Salzkammergut is good to visit as well.

Frolic in a field just 5 minutes away surrounded by 360' panorama mountain views. Walk back and window shop the hand-made lederhosen and dirndl outlets. Have a coffee across the street just steps away from the fairy tale bridge crossing a rushing Alpine stream. The well-groomed Kurpark is the confluence of two crisp and clear rivers.

Don't be shocked at seeing people in authentic everyday Austrian traditional clothes! It's beautiful.

This place is a real gem.

American-owned. Let me know how I can help make your stay terrific!

Bad Aussee is a beautiful little town very well located. Some say it is excactly in the middle of Austria. There are nice stores, selling typical alpine clothes, and on the streets you see locals stroll around in these clothes. A little like a fairytale! Mark's apartment is well located, in the centre of this beautiful town. Hallstatt is only a 20-25 minutes drive from Bad Aussee and also there is this beautiful lake of Altaussee. The apartment is small, but well organized. We had a good nights sleep as the mattresses are all good (the best in this trip!). Communication with Mark was good, and he gave good tips about the neighbourhood. We recommend visiting Bad Aussee and a stay in Mark's apartment is a good choice.

This place is great for those looking for a quiet and quaint base to explore the greater alpine area. Short drives to amazing lakes and mountains. Close to Hallstatt and other UNESCO sites. Communication with host was amazing and it easy to find the place. Great value. Don't hesitate to book this place if you want to explore the beauty of Austria!

Apartment is very comfortable and has nice views. Would suit a family or couples. We stayed 3 nights and were very happy here. One thing that may help others is that supermarkets are all closed on Sundays and close early on other days. Come with supplies if you arrive on the weekend. Mark was friendly and helpful and we would recommend this accomodation to others. Thank you!

Response from Mark:
Thanks Ezmae, come again! And yes, on State Holidays and Sundays things in Austria are closed! That makes it super quiet but sometimes not convenient.

I'm from Illinois, USA. I love Europe and have lived in the Czech Republic since 1999. I really like historical town squares and mountains. So I enjoy European cities and the countryside. Prague is the most beautiful city in the world, in my opinion. The Salzkammergut in Austria is the nicest natural area in Europe. The Alps and the lakes are so fun to see on a motorcycle, on a snowboard or on a good pair of hiking boots. I'm from Illinois where it's flat so I appreciate mountains. I listen to a lot of stuff on my iPhone and have plenty of pictures from the 40 countries I've visited. Put me in a narrow street cafe with some good reading and bad weather outside and I'm happy. Send me out into the crisp air with a blue sky and I'll enjoy nature with great appreciation. I'm not a big fan of air pollution, bugs, heat & humidity, traffic and rip offs. That's why I love the cool fresh air of the Salzkammergut the good prices and public transportation in Prague. Voxer chat me at markkrupa for Airbnb host coaching. I serve Hosts as @AirbnbCoach.
