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.

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.

Sehr ruhige und komfortable Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung ist bestens geeignet für Urlauber und (Geschäftsreisende) die eine ruhige Umgebung bevorzugen.

So kann man trotz der nahen Lage zu Potsdam (und Berlin) bei offenem Fenster schlafen - es ist sehr ruhig!!!

Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet und man findet alles was man benötigt oder benötigen könnte. So findet man neben der voll ausgerüsteten Küchenzeile (mit Geschirrspüler) im Garten auch einen Weber Grill (incl. dem notwendigen Zubehör wie Anzündkamin, Grillkohle,....).

Die Wohnung verfügt über 2 getrennte Wohn-/Schlafzimmer und 2 Bäder so dass z.B gemeinsame zusammen Paare ihre privaten Bereiche haben.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist auch das sehr gute und umangreiche Frühstück welches gemeinsam mit den äusserst netten und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern eingenommen wird.

Wir konnten leider alle Annehmlichkeiten der Wohnung und des Gartens nicht voll nutzen da wir ein dicht gepacktes Proramm während unseres Aufenthaltes hatten; wir können aber die Wohnung ohne Einschränkungen weiter empfehlen.

l'appartamento è bellissimo, tutto come da descrizione e foto, i proprietari sono molto disponibili, La posizione è ideale, tranquillo in campagna, ma a 3-4 Km dal centro di Potsdam e a meno di 2 Km dalla stazione ( in poco più di mezz'ora si è in centro a Berlino). Consigliabile a chi vuole visitare Berlino e nel frattempo fare una vacanza rilassante.

Fantastic days

  • 5 of 5

Dear friends.

We have had wonderfull days in your wonderfull appartment.

Close to the center but also very quiet . We had our bikes, and we were using them every day to see this fantastic town and surroundings. Very easy to use bikes.

The family has a fantastic nice and clean house, and there were everything which we needed. And Wolfgang was very nice to find and explain about this nice town.

We can really recommend this family and appartment, and if we are comming to Potsdam again, we will surely try to book this place again.
