Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a little over a week during Sept/Oct 2013. There were 9 adults in the house and we had plenty of room for all of us. The house was immaculate, extremely clean and had every amenity we could have needed. The wifi was excellent the whole time, there were movies to watch to unwind after a long day of sightseeing, and even a Wii when we wanted to play some games!

The owner responded to all our questions in a timely manner and was very helpful for a nervous traveler! Her caretaker met us at the house when we arrived and explained everything, from how to use the washer/dryer to giving us brochures and other information about the surrounding area.

The location was beautiful, along a creek that had a great trail. Although it was cold and rainy most of the time we were there, we never felt cold in the house (great insulation & radiant heat in the floor). There were even umbrellas for us to use and we definitely used them!

We would definitely recommend this to everyone! It's a great place to stay and if we are to ever be lucky enough to travel to Germany again, we would stay here again.

Thank you!

Wunderschönes Haus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

das Haus hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Es ist top ausgestattet, geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und lässt keine Wünsche offen. Für unseren kleinen Sohn stand sogar ein Babybett bereit. Wir haben uns alle wohl gefühlt.und wunderbar erholt.

Rottach ist zu Fuß erreichbar und das Tegernseetal bietet viele Möglichkeiten.

Danke an Frau Merriman für die problemlose Abwicklung der Buchung. Wir können das Objekt uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.
