What an awesome house! So well setup it (and fantastic for kids) it was a great pleasure to stay at. Our only regret was needing to leave. Hope to be back one day, thanks to our wonderful hosts for sharing your special place.

Max's house is a fantastic place to stay. Everything is thought of from an amazing coffee machine to drying room for your ski gear. We were celebrating a significant birthday and the house was very comfortable and just right for a large group of people. Really enjoyed our week - thank you :)
Had everything needed for a comfortable base for the weekend for a group of photographers exploring the local area. Would definitely stay again.
