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.

It is easily one of the best apartments we have stayed in. It is very spacious and clean, very comfortable and beautifully furnished. We went in October and there was an autumnal theme to the décor; no doubt if we went another season, it would also be appropriately themed. The owner is very friendly and made us very welcome with a glass of wine when we arrived and a goody bag for the children when we left. There were 4 bicycles provided for our use, and there are plenty of walking opportunities in the area. There are two restaurants within easy walking distance. The nearest town is within easy reach with plenty of supermarkets, restaurants as well as historical sights, just a very short drive away. It is on the Rhein a short distance from Bonn, Koblenz, Ahrweiler and Phantasialand for the children. There was such a lot of information in the apartment about things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend staying here. It is a beautiful area.
