We stayed here for a month with our two kids and we had more than enough room. It is full of daylight with a huge living area and beautiful views over the river on one side and the hills and rooftops of Altstadt from the other. It was spotlessly clean and the best equipped apartment we've stayed in with spare bedding, sheets, towels, and a kitchen with everything you could need. Location is very central and near all restaurants, buses, tourist attractions. Would highly recommend!

The owner was very helpful and friendly in his communications with us. This is a great place to stay. It was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. We had hot weather and so spent most of our time in the numerous brilliant outdoor swimming pools nearby. We especially liked the one at Reichartshausen which is only 20mins drive away. There is also a swimming lake 40mins away called Marbachstausee where we took our dinghy. We cycled a little by the river and walked in the woods too.
