The room of freedom is a really bright and quite apartment ( walkthough - rooms), a large kitchen with nice southwest balcony and big bathroom with washer and dryer.

The space

This is a three room apartment with kitchen and bathroom in a three familiy house, just around the corner from the International House of Exchange - the other listing I have in here. The house, also has only one right angeled corner it seams and was build around 1920. My friend says, it is the oldest house in the street. .. but, the windows, kitchen and bathroom are completely renovated. So you wallk into that old farmer wooden door and see my friends house, which has been built much later. .. you see a little dew pound. .. then you go up some stairs.. follow the creaky wooden stairs and enter your appartement. You are right were you belong.. in the kitchen, which is quite large and you find a nice sunny balcony to your left. Going through the kitchen with a lare dinning table and designer chairs :-) for up to ten people, you get to the first bed (URL HIDDEN) here, you find a sofa-bed and one converitbel sofa-bed together with nice antique furniture and beautyfull pictures in sea theme decoration. If you continue, you get to the second bedroom with a king size bed with drwas below and a very pretty old glass shelf with awsome artbooks, lovely decorated. Also we added here an aditional convertible sofabed and another dresser. Continuing to the third bedroom, you find another big king size bed and large build in wardrobe- In here, evryone should be able to fit in their clothing.You also find the TV in here, which could e moved to another room, if prefferred. After, you cross a little hallway, which is perfect to store your lugguage. Thourgh here, you get into the very birght bathroom equiped with a washing machine, a dryer, a shower, a sink and a toilet. .. it all does not seem to be very practical, but the appartement is always up for a suprise. .. So... if you are more then a couple, you have to cross each others room, to get to either the bathroom or the kitchen, but I think, you are "old " enough or open and tolerant enough not to let you bother this.
The kitchen is fully equiped and you will find everyhting you need. Just tip us for what you have consumed.. would be very appreciated.
For healthy food, you can get many of the fruits and vegetables which grow in the field simply by visitng us on Saturdays, because this is market day.
To explain you more what we can offer it is easer to let you know, that we have two children and sometimes my mum’s dog visiting us. Therefore we can offer baby equipment when needed and even supplies for the dog.

Can't wait to meet you.

Interaction with guests

This appartement is close to our house, but we will only get here once we are asked to or need to fix something. Therefore it is a peacefull place just for yourselves.

Other things to note

I like to keep the character of a house or appartement by not making too many changes to the interior and exterior. Therefore, you get historic value and individual floor plans.
If you would like to rent the apartment for longterm, we can take out a bed and add sofas and desks for example. We can also make you a special offer upon your needs and adapt furniture accoring to your needs.

We strongly recommend this. You need to know that the rooms are interlinked so you walk through the bedrooms to get to the bathroom. But if this doesn't bother you there are no drawbacks: it's v well equipped; its comfortable; its quiet; the little balcony is gorgeous o. A hot night; and Nathalie is a considerate and helpful host. Oh and it's in a nice area, right on an easy tram route down town and just across the road the trams are on is a nice little community with a few good restaurants. We think that this was a great find.

Because we arrived after 21h, Nathalie thought that was too late so she left a key hidden somewhere. Then at first we had difficulties finding the entrance to the apartment, some signs could have been useful. When we entered the kitchen, the electricity was off. Luckily late that evening Nathalie responded with how we could solve that. The apartment is spacious and well cleaned and the kitchen was well equipped but for dishwashing tools. We asked for that the next morning, but didn't receive it. Also we haven't seen a booklet with info. Besides this we had a pleasant stay in the apartment. Location was very good for us with public transport nearby. We enjoyed a nice meal at Gilbert restaurant on handschuheimer landstrasse 96. Unfortunately this morning we received a parking fine. Apparently rules have changed and you can't park for free in the street anymore. Luckily Nathalie is willing to reimburse the fine.

This apartment is very conveniently located in a quiet residential neighborhood around the corner from a rail station. Several bakeries and a park are also nearby. Nathalie was super friendly and made us feel very welcome. The place was exactly as described and pleasantly decorated. We would love to be her guests again.

Thanks Nathalie for the apartment, very practical and close to commodities (food shops), more far away from center, but public transport can be used.

It was really amazing stay at Nathalie's! We would definitely stay longer if the plan is not so tight next time. The place is very quiet, and with a lovely balcony, which is our most favorite part.

On our arrival we were met soon after contact by an acquaintence of the owner/operator and were shown through the property. We were dumbfounded as it did not reflect in any way either the advertising or as pictures in the advertisement on the air BnB site. We contacted the owner by phone and complained to her in regard to the misleading advertising of the property. She offered us another property for 1 night then she would put a second king bed as advertised back to this property and we would have to move again. No deal. The flat has only one true bedroom and one bathroom. The other two reported bedrooms had no wall or door to seperate it from the open areas. It was totally inappropriate for two couples to share. It was agreed that we would cancel our booking which was done on the website stating that it was not as advertised and the host accepted that she would authorise a full refund. This left at 6 pm trying to find accomodation for 4 people.

Nice place and we enjoyed it as base for our short visit in Heidelberg. We went on a 3 hrs boat trip, beautiful. Also we went to a winefarm in Saulheim 1 hrs drive away, Landgraf it's called. Try it out, their Riesling is great.
