This flat is exactly as described in the Trip Advisor listing and looks just like the pictures. Lovely, well-appointed, clean, warm, spacious enough for 6 (we were 5). Quiet building, comfy beds, stunning views of mountain peaks, the village itself, convenient location very close to Hochmais lift and slopes. Zero queues. Bunny slope and ski school were just a 5-minute walk away. Parking easy-peasy. We really enjoyed staying here and were fortunate enough to have excellent skiing conditions (good snow coverage, both man-made and heaven-sent) even when nearby ski areas were largely green. When they call Hinterthal "schneesicher" (reliably snowy), I guess they mean it. The only thing that surprised me slightly about the flat was that the bedroom with two single (twin) beds did not have a window to the outside and thus no real option for a bit of cool fresh air. (There are small windows up high on one wall in that room, but they open to another bedrooms, not outdoors. Perhaps this was described in the listing and I missed it?) As we were there in winter this was no problem, but on a warm summer's night we might have found it a bit tricky. Even so, I would not consider this a deal-breaker given the advantages of the flat in many other respects. The village is small and charming and there are wonderful restaurants. I would definitely recommend the flat to a friend and hope to return again myself, whether with kids or just adults. It's a keeper.
I stayed here with my son and friends at Easter. What a fabulous apartment, location could not be better, especially with young ones, only having to walk across the road was bliss. Even at peak season we experienced no queues anywhere in this region and had more than enough runs to satisfy our mixed level of skiers. Great ski parks for the young ones, cruisey blues, and challenging reds/blacks. Mountain restaurants are NOT rip off prices, and the village restaurants offer a mix of stylish and typical Austrian Tryol. Supermarket is only a couple of miles away to stock up. Will definately come back here. The locals make you feel very welcome too.
The flat is well designed, and has everything one need for a comfortable stay. It was nice to come back "home" and relax after all day skiing. The village is stylish and quiet. We really enjoyed skiing there with possibilities for all age group skiers (kids enjoyed a ski school and we the red and black slopes :).
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, modern-style apartment. The apartment had everything we needed and a great view to the ski slopes. It was super not to have to drive to the ski lifts - just a short walk to the lift that connects Hinterthal with its red ski slopes to all the surrounding ski slopes. Plenty of restaurants, a bank, and two sports shops are very convenient - only groceries and rolls had to be bought in the next town over. I totally recommend this place for a comfortable and stylish stay during a winter ski vacation.
In January 2015 we spent a week with our grown-up daughter and son in Hintherthal. We know this village very well but were not in this apartment before. It's a small quiet village but with great places to eat (f.e. the Steinbock!). There still is no supermarket in the village, so that is something you have to take into account, but there is one in Maria Alm and of course in Saalfelden (both places worth visiting!)
The view from the apartment on the Hochmais is beautiful and of course it is great that you only have to walk a few minutes to the slope, from where you can ski different parts of the area every day.
The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped, everything you can possibly need is available. The bathroom is small but sufficient.
The only thing we really missed was a bench and hooks to hang your ski boots to dry in the ski room in the basement . It's not that easy to put off your ski shoes standing up, and leaving the shoes on the ground caused wet boots because of thawing snow from skies. Something for the owners to consider....!
But it won't stop us to come again someday!
