We stayed at this apartment for six days late July / early August 2015. It was clean and has all the basics you'll need for your stay. Note that the washer is a shared with everyone in the building - a single machine in the basement that is coin operated. The apartment is on the top floor of the building and there's no elevator - that means you walk five flights of stairs up and down. The house is very quiet due to the restrictive rules. We had the same temporary setup as the other reviewer, but for six days it didn't bother us all that much. There are two sleeper sofas, although as mentioned, with four adults it might get a bit cramped.
Although on Tripadvisor there were no additional fees listed, I was asked to pay for the linens and towels, as well as the Meet&Greet with the local agent. I contacted the owner who was surprised that the fees don't show on the web site and she waived the fees in view of this fact. The local agent was very nice. We had dinner at the Kirchenwirt around the corner and had a delicious meal. Also had some delicious pastries and bread from the Bäckerei Necker on Bahnstrasse. The Bäckerei is right beside a small grocery store which has a similar and maybe a bit better assortment of items than the Spar a bit further away at which we met the agent. The Bäckerei and grocery store are reasonable walking distance.
We lucked out and were able to participate at the Strobl Lake Festival, where we saw local groups perform traditional dances and music (there was also modern music at a different pavilion). Delicious local festival food was there as well. Altoghether the people in town are friendly towards tourists and the area bustles with activities. If you have small children don't miss the playground just outside of St. Wolfgang (the address is Schwarzenbach 27, 5360 Austria). Driving from Strobl to St. Wolfgang it's on the left side of the road.

We visited just shortly after it being refurbished. There was no wardrobe for the clothes but the owner erected a temporarily one in the mean time. This to me shows that they cared about the guests and this place was looked after. For 2 people it's perfect, 4 would be a bit of a squeeze for your luggage but personal space wouldn't feel too invaded despite you all sharing the same room.
The location is ideal, close to the bus station, across the road from the sports rental shop and not far at all to the restaurants and lake. Strobl as an area to explore wolfgangsee is simply excellent. St Wolfgang, being the big and popular part of the lake, is a short bus or bike ride away. But Strobl has less of the hustle, tourist shops, and a better choice for restaurants. It's more of an authentic Austrian lifestyle.
New modern apartment,very good location! Nice indoor swimming pool and sauna.
The negative was the unexpected "meet and greet" charge!
