“Great place to stay with family.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

When looking at a property on the web, you never really know what to expect or find when you arrive. This home is exactly what is advertised and more. My family and I arrived late afternoon and was warmly greeted by Dave, who is the house host. Dave went out of his way to make us feel at home and supply us with information and suggestions for sightseeing, bike rentals,shopping, and was a good cook. The house was clean and comfortable and situated in the residential area of Schuttdorf on a quite cul-de-sac. . Zell Am See is an easy walk or bike ride to get to as well as fun areas to go swimming. If you are traveling with a family, Chalet Gretl is a good choice for your holiday.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed here as a family of 5 in a party of 11. It was a fantastic base. Rob and Dave, the chalet "maids" were great. Food was hearty and plenty of it. Plenty of wine on the table. The accommodation was clean, tidy and spacious. The guys gave us lifts to the slopes each day and were happy to socialise as much or as little as we wanted. If we had not been dead beat at the end of each day and looking after the kids then I am sure they would have had no problems helping us find and enjoy the night life.

There was a sauna which was really nice to enjoy. No problems with hot water etc.

If I was to be REALLY picky then I would suggest the following:

1 - there could be slightly better communication/information to help anyone desiring ski hire and lessons to be sorted out in plenty of time. They could make a lot more of putting the package together and providing that personal touch in advance. Having said that, ending up at Intersport was not a bad thing simply because of the ability to swap kit anywhere on the mountain

2 - It could be slightly clearer about what you can expect the guys to do in term of transfers to/from station, to/from lifts etc. Dave and Rob were really helpful however I felt on occasion that it was not 100% clear if our expectations were in their job description.

3 - Bathrooms were very clean however it may be that the shower cubicles could be checked for blockages a little more often.

I reiterate this is me being VERY picky. We had a great time, were really pleased with the accommodation and the team at the chalet and would go back at the drop of a hat.

Thanks for helping to make our trip a really good one!

“Great place to relax after a long day on the slopes!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just returned from a week at Chalet Gretl in the gorgeous village/town of Schuttdorf just outside Zell Am See. The chalet was really spacious and the rooms were very well kept. The lounge was the ideal place to chill out with my friends after a long day on the slopes, and the sauna was an added luxury! The hosts were really friendly and made everyone feel at home, and the food was delicious and really varied. We were shuttled to and from the slopes everyday at whatever time we liked, which was great and meant we didn't have to worry about buses or taxi's etc. We also made the most of being able to walk home if we wanted from Arietbahn as well, which made for a nice stretch of the legs after skiing. The chalet is only 5 minutes from Zell by Car, or you can catch the little train which is less than a 5 min walk from the chalet. Alternatively its about a 15 min walk along the lake into Zell, which i'd definately recommend, as the views are stunning!

Overall an awesome week skiing, with some great friends in a great place!

“Great Place for Family Holiday”
Reviewed 25 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We were 7 adults with 4 boys under 6. The chalet was very spacious, very clean and comfortable. The large lounge and large dining room in particular. The boys also enjoyed the garden.
The chalet is close to local rail and bus links so it was easy to get about.
Our host Dave made us very welcome and was helpful throughout the week.
We may well be back!
