Overview

About the property

Studio, bathroom, optional bedroom with bathroom, adjacent terrace, max.4 people

Stay in one or both of our beautiful ground floor apartments each with a private full bathroom. Enjoy modern, high quality furnishings and appliances like you would find in a luxury hotel.

And even on the hottest days the room temperature stays on a comfortable level, in most other places only accessible with air-conditioning.

Our total layout is suitable for up to four people utilizing the two separate apartments. This is the perfect option for two couples traveling together. They each have their own hideaway but can socialize together in either of the room's sitting areas or in the quiet outdoor garden located just outside both rooms.

The studio apartment has a small kitchenette with cooktop, sink, dishwasher, coffee maker and microwave where you can prepare your own meals. We also offer a sit down breakfast option upstairs for those wishing to be waited on! There is parking for your car on our enclosed and gated property. The entire house is non-smoking.

The apartments are located in a modern single family house adjacent to farmland on the outskirts of the city of Potsdam. It is an 8 minute drive from the house to the city center and sites.

What a wonderful way to visit Potsdam and Berlin

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have found this excellent, clean and well-furnished apartment and to meet Carola and Wolfgang, who were the friendliest and most welcoming hosts we have yet come across on our travels through Europe.

As there were three of us travelling together, we used both the apartment and the separate room, each with its own well set-up bathroom and this was ideal. There is a small kitchen in the apartment and we used the fridge, but we didn't cook any meals, as we like to explore local restaurants. On their recommendation we tried several of Potsdam's restaurants and were glad we did.

The pictures don't do the quality of the accommodation justice, as there are little details, you only appreciate once you arrive there. For example, each room really does have access to a private garden outside the sliding glass door and there were flowers on the table from the garden, as well as a folder of brochures and useful information. The bathroom had sample toiletries in case we had forgotten anything.

This accommodation is in their own home, so we chose to go with the included breakfast option and were so glad we did, as the food was delicious and plentiful and our morning chats over breakfast led to much sharing of information about where to go, what to see and how best to get there.

Carola and Wolfgang are very generous with their time and knowledge and we felt very much at home throughout our stay and were sad to leave. It is not often you find such excellent customer service. The email contact we had from Carola right from our first enquiry was prompt and very helpful.

The location of this property requires a car, but the train station is not far away and Carola was happy to drive us there to show us how everything works.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet place to enjoy Potsdam and Berlin.

Granddaughter

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to visit our first grand daughter for the first time and had the good fortune to find Carola & Wolfgang renting their apartment. These two welcome you in their home as if you were family and by the time you leave you feel as if you are part of their family. The breakfast offer should not be passed up. The food was great and the conversations with Carola and Wolfgang at the breakfast table (plan on at least on hour - time flies ...!) made the whole experience warm and cozy. You'll never find that in any hotel. The room and furniture were all high quality, especially the bedding. The secured parking was also a plus for us. They have all bases covered. We are hoping we will be able to stay with them again on our next visit.

Tolle Gastgeber, toller Service, tolle Unterkunft. Dort wird auf die persönl. Wünsche eingegangen.

  • 5 of 5

Diese Adresse und die Stadt Potsdam sind immer eine Reise wert. Waren das erste Septemberwochenende da. Wenn nichts dazwischen kommt, werden wir wieder diese Anschrift wählen. Sie hat auch eine sehr gute und schnelle Verbindung zur City. Vielen Dank - wir hatten ein geiles WE.

First Glass

  • 5 of 5

Gehobene Ausstattung, sehr Freundlicher Empfang mit Begrüßungssekt, sehr guter Schlafkomfort, sehr sauber und sehr schöner Außenberreich.

Ruhe trotz Hauptstraße.

Wir fanden nichts zu bemängeln. Preis Leistung ist OK.

Kann man jedenfalls weiterempfelen.

Charming Apartment with beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights in the apartment of Carola and Wolfgang Kapellen. We enjoyed our stay very much in this small, but very charming apartment. The bed was very good and the kitchen had a lot of equipment. Also a dishwasher and a small oven to bake bread in the morning. There were enough towels to shower. We enjoyed very much the private garden . There is a table with 4 good chairs, but we had our own position chairs to sit more comfortably . In the garden you can even use a weber bbq and there are bbq cole as well. We had our bikes and in 5 km you are in the park Sanssouci. Carola and Wolfgang are very nice people who will help you whenever they can. We even got plants from there garden which we could not find in Holland. We want to thank them for a very nice stay and can recomment this apartment and this family very much.

Many greetings from Jos and Lieke Majoor from Holland
