This new 4-room apartment can be your refuge in wild and interesting Berlin. In the very center of Berlin yet quiet, including large balcony + huge common garden great for kids, in an area full of parks (esp. Tempelhofer Feld), cafés and restaurants.
This is a a nice flat in East-West direction with ca. 85 sqm (915 sqft) on the 2nd (US: 3rd) floor in a newly built house. In addition, the balcony with afternoon sun has more than 10 sqm (107 sqft). All rooms have huge and well insulated windows, hardwood floors, floor heating and air ventilation.
It is great for families with kids. Our prices for 1-2 adults include up to three kids. The additional fee is only due for the 3rd and 4th adult.
There's a double water-bed in the master bedroom, comfy sleeping couches for 1-2 persons each in the guest and the living room. There's a bunk bed and a cot in the kids' room, we can provide a Therm-a-Rest mattress if necessary.
You can use all rooms and amenities. Please understand that this is not a design holiday flat. As we usually live here you will see our and especially our kids' stuff.
We have a DVD recorder, satellite reception, CD players, Wii, WLAN. Two closets full of board and card games for all group sizes and ages are awaiting you, as are German and English books.
The kitchen comes with induction cooker, stove, dishwasher, fridge, espresso maker, milk frother, water kettle (electric) and dishes, of course. Please feel free to use coffee / tea etc., if you use a lot, it would be great if you replaced some.
The flat is especially welcoming for couples who want to enjoy the master bedroom with the double water bed. It is also great for families especially with toddlers, i.e. there's a cot, two highchairs, a nappy changing table, toys etc.
ATTENTION: We do NOT provide a wardrobe for you. We can provide hangers for your coats / clothes if needed. The chamber next to the master bedroom is where we store things, and also where you can find the vacuum cleaner etc. if needed.
If needed, we can organize for a cleaning person during your stay.
Please note: After former guests lost a key we only provide one doorkey per party.
We are experienced and frequent home swappers and expect you to treat our home with the same respect you'd like us to show if we stayed at yours.
Behaving yourselves in a "normal" way would be helpful, i.e. avoid extraordinary noise especially at night, throw trash into trashcans, don't destroy our things, close the windows and lock the door anytime you leave the apartment.
We'll provide you with a 3-page English manual on how to do things in our apartment. Please make sure you read it, as this saves us both from problems after your stay. Our building is a modern energy-efficient house which comes with some rules concerning heating, windows, sun-shades. Thanks.
We also provide guide books, brochures and a map with hints on what to do and where to go in the vicinity.
You can reach us via email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or SMS during your holiday here.
As this is our actual home, it would be great if you sent us a short message upon your arrival if you found everything ok (in case we have not met in person, of course).
I am a board game designer, my main job is in environmental protection. When travelling I prefer home exchanges, couchsurfing and the like, mostly because I love getting to know places through the eyes of people living there. I mostly travel with my wife and our two kids.
