A great place to stay in the black forest

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed for 6 nights with our 3 kids in the home of Martina & Kevin.

The place is beautiful, well equipped and the owners are wonderful hosts.

The location is an hour drive from Zurich and since we landed at Zurich airport, in the evening time, it was very convenient. It is also a short drive to other attraction in black forest.

We had a great stay and highly recommend.

Amazing property, stunning location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Martina and Kevin's apartment on our first visit to the Black Forest in August. We were blown away by the stunning location of the property. You get the best of both worlds - the local town is busy with some great cafes and convenient supermarkets, yet you balance this with a calm and peaceful retreat as the property is surrounded by stunning forest. There is also a pleasant stream running past the property. The apartment itself is finished to a high standard and was very comfortable. Martina and Kevin were great hosts. They were extremely helpful and were there whenever we needed, yet they didn't impose on our holiday. Such a lovely couple who have clearly taken pride in renovated their apartment to a brilliant standard. Comfy beds and lovely hot showers to soothe after a long day exploring the forest. Thanks for the perfect stay!!

Beautiful, relaxing home in the Black Forest

  • 5 of 5

I can not recommend this rental or the owners enough. They are wonderful people who have built a beautiful home and share this beauty with others. It is a fabulous place already and hearing about their future plans makes me want to plan another trip. What I liked most was the creek that's about 30 feet from the house, that I felt my two young boys were safe, forest walks, short drive to amazing places, the washing machine, comfy beds, charming decor, and the hospitality from Kevin and Martina. Martina made a reservation for us at a Michelin star restaurant and Kevin lead us to the restaurant so we wouldn't get lost. Their kindness is exceptional. We told them about the activities we wanted to do in the area and they gave us insider tips. We had an amazing experience. Hopefully, they'll visit us in Arizona so we can return the kindness.

Fantastic house in lovely Black Forest valley

  • 5 of 5

Kevin and Martina are lovely and considerate hosts. They welcomed us into their home, where we had the whole of the spacious ground floor apartment - 3 large bedrooms, a comfortable lounge with window seat, two bathrooms with showers and toilets, plus kitchen and balcony. Beautifully and recently decorated throughout, we could have happily spent a lot of time relaxing in the apartment and their surrounding land - riverside and forest walks with a small lake nearby. However, having chatted to Kevin, we followed his recommendations for excellent days out in (Day 1) Todtnau (fun on the Hasenhorn coaster then a short drive to the amazing waterfalls) followed by an evening of water slides in the Galaxy part of the Badesparadies in Titisee (Day 2) Train from nearby Seebrugg to Freiburg - a beautiful small city reached by a 50 min train ride past lakes and villages, with lunch in the Feierling Brewery. The Munster square is particularly special. We returned north to Luxembourg via the stunning town of Breisach and the stunning medieval fortified village of Riquewihr to buy boxes of Gerwurtztraminer from the Zimmer family. A great trip. The location of the house, beauty of the house and area and welcome of the hosts who are fluent in German and French (and more) were all superb.
