Sunny double room with workspace, small bathroom, eat-in kitchen. Close to shops, amenities & transport on a quiet, tree-lined street. Perfect for a weekend break in Hamburg, close enough to the action but quiet and peaceful in a green, urban district.

signal is good throughout the apartment, you should be able to stream in all rooms. Very occasionally it needs to be reset from the router (Vodafone EasyBox) on the desk in the living room. To do this, press and hold the reset button on the back of the router for at least 5 seconds and then release. It will restart. All four red lights will flicker and blink blue a little bit until all four are constantly red again.

Hot water
is run through a temperature controlled boiler, which can be turned up to a scalding 60 degrees to wash dishes and down again to a pleasant shower temperature of 42 degrees. This is done using a dial under the bathroom sink.

The bathroom has an extractor fan which is switched on above the powerpoint. It runs for 20 minutes after it has been switched off. With the wall heater and the extractor fan on, the bathroom mirror won't mist up.

Washing machine
is a front loader and uses the main water supply, so it's probably best not to multi-task showering and clothes washing. I usually set the dial to 'Mischwächse' (mixed washing) which takes an hour. There's no clothes dryer but business shirts on a hanger will dry nicely in the bathroom overnight.

Tap water
in Hamburg is good drinking water but not particularly soft. I use a water filter jug to soften the water up a bit for boiling the jug and find it improves the taste of my cup of tea immeasurably.

As I do not charge a cleaning fee on my listing, guests will need to take trash away. Please bag and leave in the house rubbish on your way out. This is easily accessed through the door down the steps from the letterboxes.

we had a great time in hamburg thanks to Tessa ! the location is perfect, the flat is furnished with taste and with personnality (the photos are pretty on point)! we didn't meet tessa (her friends helped us) but she had really nice attentions for her guests : a manual of the house but also with all her recommandations for the city, maps and guides and a little present of her creation. the atmosphere of this neighbourhood is nice, bright and quiet (very few cars). I will recommend it to everyone !

Tessa hat einen ganzen Ordner mit Informationen für uns bereitgestellt (gute Restaurants, Bars und Läden) und hat alles, was wir in der Wohnung benutzen durften, mit einem kleinen Herz gekennzeichnet. Die Wohnung im 3. Stockwerk war wunderbar und uns gefielen vor allem die kleinen Dekorationen und Bilder. Die Nachbarschaft war sehr ruhig - bis auf die vergnügten Kinder, die auf dem Spielplatz in der Nähe des Balkons spielten. Das Bett war superbequem. Wir nutzten den kleinen Balkon gerne und ausgiebig. Alles in allem war der Aufenthalt sehr angenehm und wir fühlten uns sehr willkommen - wir würden Tessas Wohnung auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und auch wiederkommen :)

An ex-pat kiwi designer, I also write poetry and short stories & teach user-friendly English to adults.

I enjoy reading books out loud and watch films quite frequently.

My current faves to cook and enjoy are pretty much everything vegetable-based from Yotam Ottolenghi. An inveterate art tourist, I love adding new galleries to my swag. Love Libraries!
