                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About the owner: We are Heike and Guenther and live with our children, Sophia and Simon at the most beautiful place in the world: Dafins. High above the Rhine Valley we run a communication and journalism office. Our passion is our vacation paradise Big Sky Austria for guests from around the world who share the same high expectations about relaxing holidays in a luxurious environment. In the coming years we will build three additional luxury residences to meet the increasing demand from around the world. So we offer the opportunity to participate in this attractive concept. Just ask us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Zwischenwasser:
                      The origins of the main house dates back to the 50s of the last century. Gradually the former landlady built-up the farmhouse to the inn 'Happy panoramic view' with 25 small guest-rooms. 1985 Günther acquired the old house and operated initially a jazz and blues cafe. In 2002 together we started new plans for the traditional building. After a new terrace-building was not wanted by the community, we started in 2005 to expand the first apartment. With much love and patience the following two years we rebuilt out of the old barn todays' 'Star Castle'. Two years later, the ground floor was rebuilt with all the luxury into 'Spruces child'. The owner of this feudal apartments were among the first guests and fell spontaneously in love with this beautiful place. Quickly it became clear that for a dream holiday we needed a swimming pool and sauna and for larger groups of guests we needed more space. So we built another building next door. Here are now the spa and fitness area and the two very spacious residences 'Rubys Retreat' and 'Golden Deer'. And today all four residences inspire people. First it is the luxury and the fact that everything is here, from pizza slicer to W-LAN Then the suitability for children and pets. And in addition to that the convenient location right in the heart of Europe. Within only 3 hours you can travel to Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, France and Italy. Lake Constance is close and the mountains around the house are ideal for hiking, skiing, sledding and mountain biking. There is everything here except Hullygully. Mostt fascinating is the spectacular panoramic view of the Rhine Valley and Swiss mountains.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Each residence in 'Big Sky Austria' tells a different story. We have carefully ensured that every residence has its own concept and that all the rooms are created differently. Even each piece of furniture has his own story and all details have been carefully matched. In Rosenresli (in Golden Deer), for example, hangs the wedding painting of Heike's grandmother. In the Old Rock room (Spruces child) the old stone wall has been worked out so that the old house is still tangible. In Star Castle the entire living room was designed so that the jacuzzi could be integrated and Heikes dream kitchen could be fit in. There are countless stories to tell. All residences are fully equipped, not only for cooking but even for decorating your tables. If you need a specific cooking equipment, just ask us. If it is not there already, we will provide it till you arrive.
