Ian and Mies were very helpful and kind leading up and during our stay in their loft. Mies stayed back so she could meet us and show us the loft. We liked the space and layout of the place. It was in a quiet area of the city with great opportunities to explore the city. During the week we decided to extend our stay in Berlin and although the loft was made available we decided to move to a different place so we could experience other parts of the city. We recommend anybody to stay in this place when you look for comfort, peace and quiet and relative proximity to all amenities.

Thanks guys! We are glad you enjoyed staying here and thought about staying on at our place for a while longer. That would have been perfect, but hopefully you found a nice place in the other part of taking and could continue enjoying Berlin!

Ian was a fantastic host, who went out of his way to make us comfortable and happy and I have still lots of places left to check out on his list of things to do in Berlin. The flat was exactly as described, and light snd warm. We were very comfortable during our stay in Berlin and Ian was super helpful in advance and during our trip. He and his family are lovely and it was a pleasure to meet them and hang out! The flat is quiet and the big gardens in the back are a big plus, especially with kids. It was easy to park and supermarkets are conveniently close and within a very short drive there is the Zehlendorf High Street full of nice shops and cafes. We shall return.. :)

Ian & Mies are very warm and welcoming hosts, they guided us through our first visit to Berlin, gave us lots of advice about the city and the surroundings (The lakes!). Their loft is fabulous, very spacious and bright. For our kids it was like paradise :-) they didn't even want to go home - lots of toys for them to play, a garden, ...

Ian and his family were extremely hospitable and helpful hosts! They have 3 wonderful boys that our children enjoyed to play and hang out with. Their home is comfortable and beautiful and inspired us to go home and make changes to our own home. We felt very, very welcome and would definitely visit again in the future.

La casa de Ian es expectacular. Muy amplia, luminosa, cómoda, muy bien equipada y ordenada. Zona muy tranquila que permite el descanso total, con buenas vistas a un parque y la montaña al fondo. Tiene un supermercado al lado que te permite comprar lo que necesites sin tener que coger ni coche ni otro tipo de transporte. Muy bien comunicada, muchas líneas de autobuses a apenas 5-10 minutos de la casa, que te trasladan al centro de Berlín o cualquier otro lugar.
