We are listing our spacious two-story apartment in the heart of Ottensen.
Our apartment is especially well suited to families or larger groups of good friends who don't mind getting a little cozy.
The apartment has two floors.
On the top floor there is a living room with a couch and a swing(!), a dining room with a big table for 8+ , a fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, super blender for making smoothies, dish washer, etc…), a little bathroom with a shower and a guest room with a couch that can be folded out into a double bed.
On the bottom floor there is play room for kids with a queen sized bed and a big disco ball, a wash room, another little bathroom with a small bathtub and a large bedroom with two bunk beds and one queen sized bed. The large bedroom also has a projector which you can connect to your laptop to lie on the gigantic bed and enjoy our at home movie theater.
From the wash room (where you can use our washer/dryer) there is a door out to the terrace/garden where you can bbq (you can use our grill) or sit outside weather permitting. However, we share our terrace with our neighbors so if you sit outside we expect you to be respectful. No loud noise or late night parties please.
In addition we have 6 twin sized (ikea JÖMNA) floor mattresses which we can use to create another bedroom in one of the common spaces or extend the bed in the bedroom if necessary (eg. for groups of 11+ people).
Interaction with guests
We like to help our guests have a great time while they are staying with us. If you let us know what you are interested in then we can try to provide information to help. I give a sheet with neighborhood tips to all of our guests.
Other things to note
Check out time is 10:00 or earlier
Check in time is 15:00 or later
These times are completely flexible if there is not another guest arriving/leaving on the same day but if there is another guest we need to make sure there is time for the apartment to be cleaned between guests.
This is our home where we live throughout the year with our children so we expect our guests to treat it with respect. If you want to smoke then please go outside onto the terrace. We share the terrace with our neighbors so we expect you to be thoughtful. No loud parties, late night noise, etc. And of course if they ask you to quiet down we expect you to listen. Just be a good person and we'll get along fine.
