Feel at home right away with Kaprun Rentals’ Luxurious Apartments By: Hawé van den Brink


The beautiful village of Kaprun lies at the heart of one of Austria’s most popular ski resorts. Kaprun Rentals’ luxurious apartments are all lo- cated within this traditional alpine setting. What started as a private investment - an apartment to enjoy the winter and summer holi- days – transformed into an exciting new business opportunity for entrepreneurs Melanie Treffers and Hawé van den Brink, the owners of Kaprun Rentals.


After renting out their apartment, they quickly realised that there was a huge demand from dis- cerning guests seeking luxury rental accommo- dation combined with high-end service. “Our guests like to come home after a day of skiing or golf and find themselves surrounded with the same luxuries they are accustomed to in their private home,” says Melanie. “The biggest compliment we get from guests who’ve stayed is that the apartment felt like a home from home. Then we know that we have reached our goal". Quality of service and personal touch is the central concept of Kaprun Rentals - this is what differentiates us from the rest of the apartment rental business. Our guests are guaranteed the privacy of a luxury apartment but they also have on hand the seductive service of a luxurious bou- tique hotel. Kaprun Rentals’ main goal is to quickly anticipate to the needs and desires of their guests.


After the success of renting out their own apart- ment, very soon other apartment owners joined the concept and within a year Melanie and Hawé moved to Kaprun to expand their concept. There are now 13 apartments in Kaprun


Rentals’ portfolio, which will increase to 20 by the end of 2011. All are luxuriously styled but each apartment maintains its own individual style – rather like peoples characters, Hawé explains:

“Each person is unique in their own way, just like our apartments. In the same way, there is al- ways an apartment that will suit the individual needs of our guests. Our guests don't want off the peg accommodation - when they book an apartment they make their decision by the look and feel and match that to their own require- ments”.


The location of Kaprun is also unique – it’s a genuine four-seasons holiday destination. Lo- cated at the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn and with the Hohe Tauern National park as its backyard, there are unprecedented natural attractions to enjoy – winter, spring, summer, or fall.


One of the main attractions is the Kitzsteinhorn. The Kitzsteinhorn is a true legend and more than just a glacier, it was the first glacier skiing region in Austria – it’s an alpine inspiration 3,000m above sea level. Surrounded by the highest peaks in Austria, the panorama of mountains and ice


are some of the most powerful view in the Alps. Of course, the skiing possibilities are endless. Whether it’s the novice or the experts, freeriders or the ones that want to challenge themselves at the fun-park, there is plenty of variety to meet everybody's needs.


What makes the Kitzsteinhorn unique is its many contrasts. In one respect you have the rugged, mighty mountain and frozen glacial landscape; and in quite another there is the moun- tain’s social and gastronomic ambience. Be- tween 900 and 3,000m, there is a plethora of diverse of restaurants, bars and alpine huts with varying menus. Whether typically Austrian or modern European, there’s a menu to suit every- one - from breakfast to après ski. The latest is the World Summit 3000 with the Cinema 3000, Panorama platform "Top of Salzburg" and the new Summit restaurant. The highlight of this striking piece of modern
