Right from the start Monika the owner was extremely helpful and waited for us at the apartment on arrival. The apartment is cozy and renovated with good standards and we especially liked the outdoor terrace with closable glass walls and electric heating during the chilly spring evenings. Owner helped us with the problem with the automatic/electric sunroof, so all-in-all excellent service and would recommend this apartment to my friends! Thanks Monika!

The WiFi was great! Excellent communications with Monkia (the owner) prior to our arrival and during our visit. She was very helpful with advice and even dried a few loads of washing for us in her dryer & printed out our boarding cards for us! Her two little dogs are very friendly too and visit you on occasion. We had a hire car, but you can get around without one - the S Bahn stop is only a few minutes walk away - and tickets work out cheaper if you buy a 3 day pass or do a group ticket. We dined twice at a local Chinese Restaurant again a few minutes walk away as the service and food was so good and very reasonable. There's a small supermarket also a few minutes walk away. Further afield - a 5 minute drive is a Lidl, and a little further an Aldi supermarket. Two stops on the S Bahn (or 10 minutes in the car) takes you to Pasing - a nice little town which has an indoor shopping centre, with lots of restaurants. The Centre of Munich (Marienplatz) is 20 mins away on the S Bahn - SO much to do here. Lots of markets, museums (you'll never see all of the Deuches museum in one day), Englicher garten was great - locals surf here and swim in a 'lazy river'. The Hofbrauhaus is an essential visit! We drove to Bad Tolz - a beautiful village and just outside is an alpine ski lift with a summer toboggan run. We also went to Therme Erding, an indoor water park and spa but should have paid for all day ticket as 4 hours wasn't enough to explore it all. The accommodation was perfect to return to when we had finished out day out - very quiet for undisturbed sleep, the photos are accurate - everything is as described.
