Stay in the heart of Berlin! Our veggie flat is on the top floors (no lift, sorry!), looking into a quiet green backyard. The top floor offers a big living room/kitchen and terrace. Stairs lead to the lower floor with the bed rooms (including your room) and the spacious bathroom.
We moved to Berlin recently. The apartment is cozy and colorful, but still a bit work in progress, so hopefully you don't mind a bit of chaos. Think boxes full of books in the corner :-)
Your bedroom is very small. It's OK for 4 persons, but only if you want to use it just to sleep. Which is exactly what most of our visitors want: The city offers so much to discover, and the flat is cozy and charming, with a nice view into the green backyard (squirrels often come by for a visit).
The room sleeps 4: two in a shared bed, and two on a double mattress in a cave-like elevated surface just below the ceiling, which you reach by climbing a ladder.
You have your own small bedroom.
We will share the rest of the flat:
- living room with attached kitchen with all the stuff that define a kitchen (welcome to cook, but PLEASE note that I ask guests not to bring any meat into the apartment)
- roof terrace (summer only)
- two bathrooms
Interaction with guests
If I'm in town, we'll also stay in the apartment. Always happy to have a coffee or tea with guests and have a chat.
However, we both also travel quite often (Sara mostly in India, Jens mostly in Europe).
Other things to note
The apartment is in the top floors of a 5-storey high building. There is no elevator, so you'll have to climb quite a few stairs.
Please be nice and considerate towards our neighbors.
Our apartment is vegetarian, so we ask all guests not to bring any meat or meat products. (There is a vegan supermarket around the corner - a great place to stock up on some tofu sausages! :-) )
We ask all guests to take off their shoes.
Smoking is permitted on the terrace (summer only).
Let's do our share to save the planet (and money): Please help saving energy and water. So please don't turn the heating on and open the windows at the same time, and turn the lights off when leaving a room.
I love traveling and politics - and found a job to combine the two. So now I work in the diplomatic service, moving to a new place every few years. I lived in Brazil, Nigeria and Bosnia for a while, and moved back to Berlin in summer 2015.
