This charming little off-grid greenhouse is a great location if you want something organic and green, yet clean and safe. Rest or celebrate between greenery and succulents inside or use our pavillion for your leisure. Enjoy some fresh eggs from our farm chickens for breakfast. We are in walking distance to the university campus and the clinics and science facilities.

The space

Please read everything here carefully, it's actually quite important.

This listing is for a greenhouse found on a work-in-progress mini farm/homestead/ecovillage.

To access the Airbnb greenhouse, you will walk past some of our farm project, which may include some of the work-in-progress elements or projects we're working on. The mulch path will guide you to the greenhouse.

Think of it as a camping experience. Think of the greenhouse as a solid-structure tent. You would sleep indoors, protected from wind and rain, on mattresses, with blankets.

There is a propane heater for colder nights.

There is a propane grill and stove for cooking. There is also a small propane refrigerator and a camping cooler. Additionally, there are a couple grocery stores in walking distance.

There is no electricity.

The greenhouse can fit about 8 mattresses. If you need space for more, we also offer the pavilion which might fit up to 6 mattresses. Need more than that? We also have a converted bus or a tent you could use. If you prefer, you could also bring your own tent, there is LOTS of space.

If this listing is unavailable or there are daytime events which are incompatible with your schedule, check out our partner listing:

If you are interested in this listing as an event location, such as a birthday party, bachelor/ette party, wedding and/or reception, let us know. We also can connect you with our event planner and decoration team.

If you reach out to us with an Inquiry or a Request, please indicate that you have read and understand everything I've described.

Guest access

Guests are invited to spend time in the mulched areas starting with the pavillion, the shower area, past the grill station, the greenhouse, and the composting toilet in the back. Other areas can be accessed at our discretion.

Interaction with guests

We love interacting with guests, and may or may not be elsewhere on site during your stay. However, we are also quite courteous and like to give guests their privacy.

Other things to note

The greenhouse is located quite near the helipad for the medical facilities of the University Clinic, and several times a day, helicopters will land or take off. It can get to be what some might consider uncomfortably loud for about 5-10 seconds each flight, but there are never many flights a day, perhaps once every 3 or 4 hours, and to my knowledge, not at night.

Our neighboring garden is used occasionally by some young adults as a place to hang out, listen to music, play outdoor sports like badminton or tossing a frisbee. Mostly they aren't around, but they might show up during your stay. They are quite respectful and shouldn't bother you at all.

I had a very nice stay here. The property is very rural and rustic. After one week I decided to extend my stay another. There is an outdoor shower, some chickens, lots and lots of plants, candles, and no electricity! All of the light is solar-powered and the shower is solar-heated, the toilet is compostable, and there is an outdoor gas-powered grill to cook on. I absolutely adore this, but it is not for everybody The location is absolutely fantastic, next to the university, where you can catch a bus, there is a supermarket a walk away, but the place is still very quiet and calm at night. Also bear in mind that the place can be difficult to find at first, particularly at night. Chad and Julia were very amazing hosts, always checking in on us, getting gas when the canisters were empty, and keeping us topped up with fresh eggs!

Chad's place is especially suitable for stays with beautiful weather as you can enjoy the wonderful garden and thoughtfully arranged accessoires the best. Good communication and location, easier to find than I thought.

Thanks for your hospitality, the place offered us a great night with calm and and good rest. The concept you created there, gave us a good environment to talk and drink some Jagermeister in Family. Congratulations for your idea and effort to get a green house. Regards to you and Julia

Chad and Julia are great hosts and i recommend their place to everyone who wants to spend a nice time in Heidelberg. The property is romantic and comfy within a calming garden setup. Very good place for families and basicly everyone who is searching for a relaxing stay in the beautiful Heidelberg.

This is the perfect place to get away from it all and have a relaxing time out and away from technology. If you like to camp but still be within a walking distance of shops and downtown...this is the place to go. Definitely has a very campy outdoor vibe! We loved it! And Chad and his family were extremely welcoming and willing to help with whatever we needed. Would recommend and stay here again!
