Stayed Saturday 28 June 2014 with Family
We had a wonderful time in the house. It was perfect for us, one family with children and an older couple. The house and the garden were very nice, especially for the children the garden was nice. Having a dishwasher and a washingmachine made it for everyone a vacation. We could walk to the Balaton, but mostly we went by car which was no problem at all. We would advise this house to anyone who wants a real vacation.

Definitely the best holiday home we have stayed at in Hungary. Lots of space including lovely big dining tables both inside and out. Excellent facilities in the kitchen and useful having a DVD player. Plenty of space in the garden and an excellent location for visiting lots of places around Lake Balaton.

The house is beautifully decorated and everything is very good quality. We had lots of space both inside and outside and its hard to find fault with the house. The house is in a very quiet road, but there are lots of nice restaurants nearby. Helga, the owner, was very helpful with advice before we went and on arrival there was lots of information on the local area. Thoroughly recommended !

This property was outstanding value. Everything was neat, fresh and very clean. The house was well equiped and the owners had included many small extras (books, childrens DVDs, a bottle of wine on arrival) which really added to the enjoyment of our holiday. The garden was large, fenced and well-kept and our children enjoyed playing outside everyday. The house was close enough to walk to a choice of two beach areas which were also great for the kids and parents alike. With a large, beautiful house, quiet location, and friendly, helpful owner we would highly recommend this property for a family holiday at Lake Balaton.

The house was so well equipped, with extra dishes and cutlery to accomodate 8+ people and a load in the dishwasher. Dishwasher and washing machine was timesaving and ideal. The house itself was excellent in decor and space for 8. The surrounding garden a haven, so peaceful and beautiful. Restaurants walking distance held variety and quality. Lots to see and do, thanks to Helga and Stewarts well stocked leaflet rack in the apartment and details they sent out to us before arrival. For our two familys Hungary was a fantastic holiday. Thank you

Having stayed in villas and houses throughout Europe, this was certainly one of the best. Very well equipped and in a perfect location to enjoy both the countryside and all of the facilities of Lake Balaton. A great place for a relaxing holiday with lots of fascinating places to visit and with good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The villa was exceptionally well appointed with a beautiful terrace to enjoy those early evening drinks. Well suited to couples and families alike, the garden is perfectly child friendly. We shall definately be returning in the near future and would certainly recommend this villa to all friends without hesitation. Delightful owner and very helpful keyholder living close by.
