The modern kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and some basic grocery items. The house is in a quiet location a few minutes from The Rhine and from public transport into Bonn and Bad Godesberg. About 10 mins walk away is a large supermarket and an excellent bakery. Andrea the owner made us feel very welcome and ensured we had everything we needed.We will definitely be staying here again and have already recommended it to friends.However we would like more of the information provided to be in English.

The living room seemed large enough to rehearse the Stuttgart Ballet Company in and had floor to ceiling windows all around, offering far reaching urban views over the Rhine and Koblenz city. The dining room and master bedroom also possessed these windows which could slide open to reveal the balcony which ran around the outside and where we sat most of the time. The apartment was cheerfully decorated in a blend of traditional and contemporary design, it was magnificently appointed and it was obvious that careful thought had gone into the comfort of guests. There was a fully functioning kitchen and in the cellar there was an excellent laundry room; the entire house was cleaned to perfection. The owner, Dagmar, lives in Hamburg, but communicated clearly and helpfully with us at all times, including finding and booking a vet for our Golden Retriever (for the UK Pet Passport Scheme requirements). Lidl was nearby, but it was smaller and with far more restricted product lines than the English branches. The better option was REWE, about the same distance away in the opposite direction. There was an excellent bookshelf filled with books and tourist information. As a location it was ideal, allowing us to travel both northwards and southwards along the River Rhine for sightseeing. The Moselle Valley was another option, but we had already had a holiday there. The Lahn Valley and Bad Ems was also a terrific discovery and well worth the visit. There was an allocated parking space, but even in a small car, getting into and out of it was tricky. The main downside for us was access, either down a steep footpath or up flights of stone steps, neither of them easy with heavy baggage or family shopping: definitely unsuitable for the unfit or infirm. We had an enjoyable stay and a fabulous holiday in sunny Germany that we will remember forever. Our grateful thanks go to Dagmar for making it possible.
