Apartment arrival time:
The apartment will be available after 16:00 hours on your planned arrival date. Please email us a few days before your intended departure, to advise of your approximate arrival time and I will pass this to our property managers Iain and Julie, who will meet you at the apartment.

Please can you also give Iain and Julie a call on their telephone number listed below if you have experienced any delays whilst travelling to the resort and are going to be late.

If you are on schedule can you please call Iain and Julie approximately 15 minutes before you arrive. They live in the next village Altenmarkt and this gives them sufficient time to drive over to meet with you.

Apartment departure time:
We must ask that you vacate the apartment by 10:00 hours on the day of departure, this then gives us enough time to prepare the apartment for our next guests. Please lock the apartment door and leave the key in the front post box

Apartment keys:
Keys can be collected from Iain or Julie at the apartment house on arrival. If you accidentally lose the key we do have to charge £30.00 for a replacement as we have to go to Salzburg to get one cut, as it is a specially cut security key that will open your individual apartment and the front door.

Taxerweg is the first right hand turning after the Intersport shop, shopping mall (photo above) and Hofer (ALDI) supermarket on the 99 Obertauern road. These will be on your left hand side, if you look to your right you will see the Radstadt ski piste and main Gondola our ski apartments are only 850 meters from these lifts.

We no longer charge for cleaning as our guests normally prefer to clean the apartments themselves, as this saves them money. If you would like us to clean the apartment please let us know, our cleaning charge is £21.00 per hour, this may seem high but we have to hire in an outside contractor. However this charge should not effect you providing you make sure that the apartments are thoroughly cleaned.

 Our manager checks the apartment thoroughly to ensure that the apartments are left spotlessly clean and ready for our next guests , Please make sure that the shower, toilet and all kitchen worktops are thoroughly cleaned with the appropriate cleaning material and all furniture polished.

If the apartments are not cleaned and left as found on first arrival, we reserve the right to charge for cleaning and deduct this from the security deposit.

A security deposit is required when booking an apartment, this will reserve the apartment for you and will also be held as a deposit against any damages. The security deposit will be returned via the UK office, by either cheque or bank transfer for people residing in the UK, (please email us to let us know your preference with bank details if applicable), or by bank transfer for people living in countries other other than the UK, 72 hours after your departure date.

The deposit amount required is £50.00 per person, minimum £200.00 for the 2 and 4 person apartments and a minimum of £500.00 for the 11/13 person apartment.

Note: As well as securing the accommodation the deposit is held to cover any damages or cleaning charge and is returned via the UK office 72 hours after departure.

The apartment rental, linen and any cleaning charge agreed (if you would like us to do the cleaning) as well as any other monies owed, is due 8 weeks before the start of the holiday, or immediately if booking within eight weeks or less of departure.
