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 €2.20 per person per night 'Kurtaxe' (tourist/city/spa tax) which is payable locally. If you are staying 4 nights or more there is also an additional one off 'research fee' of 1.10 Euro per person. For children up to and including 14 years there is no charge. In return you will 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.

Small children should not be left alone on either the balcony or entrance terrace as it may be possible for a small child to climb through the railings.

The property is built on a slope and there are a number of steps to gain access so it may therefore not be 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.

Great apartment with the most stunning view. Everything you need is provided. The information given by Richard and Birgit is very helpful. We had a fantastic time hillwalking in the most beautiful mountains.

We had a fantastic stay. Richard and Birgit made sure we had lots of information to get there smoothly, and tips for places to go during our visit. We were overwhelmed by the view - simply stunning. Such a comfortable space, really good bed, well equipt kitchen, stylish decor. I didn't want to leave.

Brilliant hosts, provided fantastic information and local knowledge. We were there 5 days, perfect for cycling, hiking and relaxing. The apartment is incredibly well equipped with everything you would need and amazing view. We hope to revisit in the future.

As per Birgit and Richard's apartment in Falmouth in the UK, their place in Austria is immaculate, stylishly decorated and equipped with everything you'd need. The view of the valley and mountains, which you can see from bed, is breathtaking and it's worth staying for this alone! Again, their communication was brilliant - very attentive, with a great list of recommendations for our trip. We hired a car, which we would recommend as it made getting to town and to the slopes really easy. The walk/bus is do-able but a bit more effort with ski stuff! Skiing in Sportgastein was excellent - big wide, empty pistes. We'd definitely visit again.

Fantastic appartment with great location for skiing, all ski areas nearby, and exploring the Gastein area. Stunning view from the appartment. Excellent hosts who couldn't be more responsive and helpful. Having a car is very beneficial, making everything easily accessible.

A lovely stay! Would definitely come back. Apartment is beautiful, cosy and well-furnished. The town is easily walkable and the apartment is right on the bus route. Richard and Birgit were very professional hosts and were very prompt and helpful in their responses. Skiing was also excellent!

Richard & Birgit User ProfileRichard & Birgit is a superhost.

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 Austrian mountains.

We both enjoy walking, hiking, sailing, swimming, surfing, golf, tennis, skiing, snowboarding, good food/drink/atmosphere, nature and architecture/design.

We have spent much of the last 5 years renovating our Cornish home 'Porth Pennti' which overlooks Falmouth harbour and more recently 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,
