Ideal for two adults and two children’s traveling to Berlin for the first time. We had a car and drove into Berlin (and Potsdam) city-center every day for exploration of the city. (20-25 minutes’ drive from city center, and free parking at the street.) Fully equipped with a proper kitchen and washing capabilities. We can really recommend this house for other travelers. /Roger Svensson, and family.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Stephan and his family were so helpful in finding the best way to sleep everyone, and they were warm and welcoming with excellent English. The house itself is beautiful - tasteful and spacious everywhere, and with wifi throughout (for those teenagers, or adults, who can't live without it!) The garden is wonderful, with flowers, a sandpit, hammock, and lots of space to spread out. There is even a firepit and we had a great time sitting round the open fire in the evening. The location is excellent. The house is in a very small village, but close to lakes and the River Havel with lots of opportunities for cycling, lake swimming and boating. Brandenburg an der Havel is about 20 minutes away by car, with supermarkets, restaurants, trip boats, a great playground and plenty of other faciliites, as well as being a very beautiful town. From the station you can get regular trains to Berlin, about 1 hours' journey. We also took the bikes into Poland for a day's cycling, and visited the concentration camp at Sachsenhausen. Our only criticism would be that we were a bit suprised to be charged extra for bedding and towels (quite possibly this is in the property description and I missed it!), and also that there were lots of wooden surfaces - lovely, but I spent the whole week worrying about people putting down cups and leaving marks on them. However these are tiny things and in no way marred a fantastic week. We would happily recommend this house, and wish Stephan and his family all the best in the future.
