Incredibly kind and welcoming hosts; beautiful garden setting!

  • 5 of 5

The spectacular garden is what first drew us to this fabulous apartment in Heidelberg, happy to say the unit was even better in person. We found fresh flowers in the apartment and anything a traveler could possible need in the kitchen an bath.

The location was ideal because it was a short 15 minute walk to the Heidelberg Castle where we spent a good half day. The location is also a short (albeit steep) walk to the train station and buses run often.

Ursula and Rolf provided exceptional information regarding the local attractions but they really helped us out after my girlfriend lost her passport in Heidelberg. We did not notice until we had left the city for Austria. Rolf and Ursula took the time to pick up the lost passport at a local municipality and sent it overnight to our hotel in Vienna. Saved us a lot of time and hassle.

Quiet Apartment in Gorgeous Setting

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in mid-September which was unfortunately chilly and wet. The apartment is quite comfortable and well-equipped and has a beautiful setting. The photographs are very accurate and reflect a gorgeous big garden that is often full of birds. We were sad that our weather was just too unpleasant to be able to sit outside in the various lovely garden alcoves. The whole back of the apartment is large glass windows though and we were still able to enjoy the view.

There is a parking spot right off the road so we were able to easily park. The house is located on the steep side of one of the large hills rising out of the Neckar valley. The road up is extremely winding and narrow and I would highly recommend having a Garmin as it is quite a maze of tiny roads.

Some of the reviews talk about walking to restaurants but despite being active walkers, we were reluctant to try walking to the only one we found up on the hill. The streets are not lighted and with the narrowness, it didn't seem sensible to us. We did cook in the apartment several nights and wound our way downtown the others. Parking can be a problem in Heidelberg but we were lucky and found places to park quite easily.

The owner was very nice and provided fresh flowers in the apartment when we arrived. We really did enjoy this apartment and I expect that in the spring and summer it would be especially pleasant!

Amazing holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay with Ursula and Rolf. The pictures capture the place well but it's much better than what is depicted in the photo's. A delightful settiing, in a quiet residential area which is a 30 minute walk to the castle and funicular railway. Steep hills on the way back, very challenging indeed !!! but the views make it worthwhile with many outdoor restaurants serving local food and a shoppers paradise with both modern and quaint old town contrast to choose from. Plenty of sightseeing to do in Heidelberg we would love to return. The apartment is immaculate, comfy bed, great shower simply perfect for us. Thank you for all your help Ursula during our stay you were wonderful :)

Ruhig und märchenhaft.

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt in dieser Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Ruhe, die Aussicht, der Garten waren einfach märchenhaft. Während der Hitzewelle konnten wir uns im Schatten der schönen Bäumen von den Ausflügen in die Umgebung erholen.

Im Grünen

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt ruhig gelegen über dem Neckartal. Aus der Ferienwohnung fällt der Blick in den schönen alten Garten, den man mitbenutzen kann. Er lädt dazu den Tag gemütlich ausklingen und die Seele noch etwas baumeln zu lassen.

Die Ferienwohnung verfügt über alles, was man so benötigt und noch über ein paar Sachen mehr. Besonders erwähnenswert ist das umfangreiche Info-Material zu Heidelberg (Stadtplan, Prospekte, Reiseführer).

Und zum Schluss muss unbedingt noch die liebe Gastgeberin erwähnt werden.
