Great apartment

5 of 5
Fantastic apartment that was very comfortable. 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.

Peter and Uschi are wonderful, welcoming hosts and Edesheim is a lovely town.

5 of 5
Staying with Peter and Uschi Kreuz in the lovely wine town of Edesheim was the highlight of our holiday this year. 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)
