Lovely touches like coffee in the cupboard, shower gel in the bathroom...home from home. Very central. One thing that would help would be a map of parking as it's not directly outside. Would recommend and definitely rent again.

They are wonderful welcoming hosts and the accommodation is excellent. We cycled, swam and drove to see Heidleberg, We would certainly like to return to this property. Dymphna (Dublin)

We really enjoyed it and we would definitely go back. it was a convenient place for us to drive around exploring this lovely corner in Germany and it is within reach to get to France, Belgium, Luxembourg or even Holland. Finally we would like to thank the owner for their hospitality and for looking after us. please accept our Kind Regards & Best Wishes. Hope to see again soon, from all my family.
