My sister and I stayed in the home with our children aged 8-16 years. The property was situated on a quiet road with the nearest neighbors fields away. By Hungarian standards the house was exceptional. We felt as though we were living in a very large IKEA showroom. The house was well equipped with a large refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher which made food prep and clean up easy. We appreciated the washing machine on sight. The weather was a bit too cold by adult standards for use of the pool but the children enjoyed their time in it. The views of the countryside and Lake Balaton were refreshing in the morning with our coffee on the huge patio and in the evening with our glass of wine on the rooftop terrace. There was plenty of outdoor furniture to be able to enjoy the scenery in comfort. Having 2 generous sized "master bedrooms" allowed each of us to have our own private space while the children enjoyed the company of their cousins in the 2 other large bedrooms. The roomy modern bathrooms provided ample space for several people to get ready in the morning. Overall I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet country property with convenient access to tourist towns and activities. The thermal spas of Heviz and the Festetics Palace in Keszthely were easy drives and enjoyed by all. The Heviz piac (farmers market) was a great place to purchase fresh meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables and bakery as well souvenirs for family back home. The house was only 2 1/2 hours from Budapest, 2 hours from Zagreb, Croatia and Vienna, Austria and 3 hours from Lubjiana, Slovenia, for an American these were easy day trips. We had relatives living 30 km away and the property location was convenient for frequent visits and the large outdoor space was so nice for enjoying a meal together.
Thanks to the owners for leaving us a bottle of wine and water for our arrival. After many hours of travel it was much appreciated.
The neighbors do have several loud dogs that barked especially in the morning but were not disruptive during the night. The approach to the property is a short driveway from the road and we did have trouble with our low riding cars bottoming out if the vehicles were fully loaded. These would be my only negative comments.
