About Audrey Macduff

We live in Derby in the UK and always wanted a place in the mountains, one that we could enjoy all year round. We have loved winter sports for many years and were particularly drawn to Austria. The scenery, skiing, lakes and year round activities ensures every visit is memorable. Kaprun is a lovely friendly village and it really feels like home-from-home to us.

We have skied with the whole family in Many resorts around the world but love the cosiness of Kaprun and the surrounding area.

Audrey Macduff purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Audrey Macduff chose Kaprun

We were drawn to Kaprun because of the diversity of the ski area in and around the area, the Glacier was also a big selling point because we wanted somewhere snow-sure. The idea of skiing in the morning in the summer and swimming in the lake or golfing in the afternoon really appealed to us.

Austria really does offer unspoilt Alpine mountain villages and scenery. Kaprun in particular has an endearing alpine atmosphere with lively bars, cafés and great restaurants. There is so much to do and my whole family enjoy visiting in both the summer and the winter.

The accommodation is really spacious, we have both spent many a ski holiday in cramped apartments in France, buying in Austria was an obvious choice.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is really light and airy, the village centre is a quick and easy walk. We have taken great care to make sure guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay.

There is always something going on in Kaprun, it is lively but charming place to holiday. Not only do we go to ski but we also use the apartment as a base to explore, we have watched World Cup skiing, Snow Board Cross, Bobsleigh/Bob-Skeleton World Cup races, and Mountain Bike Championships all within easy driving distance from the apartment.

Super apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for our 2 week summer holiday during August 2017. It was clean and very spacious - perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.The lounge/kitchen/dining room was lovely to sit and relax in.

Being directly next to the Billa supermarket was an added bonus. It was even open on Sundays (although this might have been just because it was the summer months). We popped across most mornings to get pastries and fresh bread for our sandwiches that day.

It was in a good position to get into central Kaprun easily (5 to 10 minutes walk) where we enjoyed many excellent meals out. There were plenty of restaurants to choose from.

It was also a good area to be based as we enjoyed so many varied days out. The Krimml waterfalls was one of our favourites (an hour's drive away) and also the Hochgebirgsstauseen reservoir (just up the road). Beautiful scenery all around.

We also enjoyed mini-golf, the summer toboggan run, a trip into Salzburg, the Kitzsteinhorn and walks through gorges. The only disappointing thing was that we were all keen to hire bikes but all the hire shops in Kaprun had sold out - maybe everyone books them up in advance?

All in all a great holiday that we'd recommend to anyone.

A great week, in a great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 children - 10/12) stayed recently in this clean, perfect apartment, ideally placed for skiing on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. The owner, Audrey, was really helpful prior to our booking and provided all the information we needed to ensure that the location and ski access was what we were looking for.

The apartment is situated a few minutes walk from the ski bus stop. These start at 8am and are plentiful, every 15/20 mins or so. We were a little worried that being towards the end of the route we would have trouble getting on. But this didn't happen as buses came along frequently.

The apartment itself is part of a building with enclosed parking, bin area (easily accessed) and really good washing facilities on the ground floor. The apartment was perfect for what we needed. Two bedrooms, one with twin beds for the children and an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. TV and DVDs were good for the evening and playing back our videos from the days. The kitchen hob worked really well and fridge/freezer had a lot of storage.There was a bathroom and a separate toilet which was useful, while trying to get out in the morning.

The apartment also had a storage closet and underfloor heating, which can be controlled by room thermostats, if you needed to heat separate rooms. Very useful for drying.

The apartment building has a really good lift, when moving bags/skis etc up and down.

The children liked to spend 20 minutes each day playing on the swing and slide, which could be seen from our balcony.

The view from the balcony is of the outskirts of Kaprun (as we were at the top end), the road and supermarket which is 30 seconds from the apartment, but the snow covered mountains and glacier are breathtaking. The presence of the supermarket was perfect. Being self catering and not having a car, it was very easy to stock up for the week and each day. Also, there isn't any noise from the supermarket car parking either, as it wasn't that busy. Made things very easy and didn't really spoil the view.

Kaprun centre is a nice ten minute walk where there are a variety of bars and restaurants. We ate out a couple of times and there was a good variety of places.

Although there wasn't any snow in the town on our visit, i'm sure that it would be look fantastic.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment. It made our stay really enjoyable and easy! We would return.

A fantastic apartment close to the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment close to the slopes and within walking distance of the town centre. Parking is convenient either at the top of the block or in an underground car park and a lift helps you get all your luggage down to the flat. You enter into a warm and welcoming environment with everything you need for an enjoyable stay, the flat was very clean and tidy and well maintained. We have 3 kids and the owner put an extra bed in the second bedroom which worked really well for us, equally it could have been in the living room for an older kid. The beds were comfortable and nicely furnished and rooms well kitted out with wardrobes and draws. The kitchen was clean and has everything you need to be able to cater for an entire week if you want to keep the costs down and the Billa supermarket is incredibly convenient across the road, it is also well stocked. All bedding and towels were provided which made our travel so much easier, meant the car was less packed. The road outside gives great access to the glacier up the road, the beginners slope and also the Masikogel, without creating noise that disturbs you. This is our second year in Kaprun and we returned because of the ease with which the kids have learnt to ski, whilst we have managed to get 6/7 hours of skiing ourselves. Nowhere else would provide the same ski package, we paid for lunch and the kids were looked after from 9am to 3/4pm, with a good learning slope and nice progression on the Maiskogel and then the Glacier, we've been really happy with it. The town has a really nice feel to it with a good range of restaurants, bars and ski shops. We would happily recommend this apartment to both friends and family.

We stayed for 4 months and loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

We did the ski season and stayed at this fab apartment. It was home from home and I couldn't find a single thing wrong (not that I was looking!) It was super clean, comfortable and perfect for our needs. We had a house full of stuff with us and there was pleanty of room. The beds are SUPER comfy and everyone who came to stay slept like babies. The wifi signal is excellent as well as all the plumbing and heating. The balcony was lovely to sit and have our breakfast on with a lovely view of the Glacier. The Supermarket is just downstairs which couldn't be more convenient.

There is an excellent bus service to all the local slopes as well as the Glacier. Kaprun has some fab restaurants and the ski system works with excellent efficiency. We miss it very much and I hope we will go back soon!
