Description

The space

Near Uni Griebnitzsee, Hasso-Plattner-Institut, Filmstudios Babelsberg: We rent out our bright, beautiful 3 room loft apartment with old, slanting roof beams, spacious kitchen/living area and 2 bedrooms – with oil-impregnated oak flooring throughout the entire apartment.

There is one bedroom with a double bed (1,60 m) and wardrobe and a second bedroom/study room with sofa bed (1,40 m), desk and a chest of drawers. The large combined kitchen/living room includes a cosy living room corner with an extendable couch, cable TV, dinner table and kitchen. At request, we can provide a high chair of the brand „Stokke-TrippTrapp“ as well as a baby bed. Babysitter-Service.

Bath towels and bed linen are provided.

The apartment features a fully equipped kitchen of the brand „Bulthaup“ with ceramic cooking surface, an oven, dish washer, refrigerator/freezer, Nespresso machine and a toaster.

The bathroom has a window and a bathtub (showering is possible while sitting). A hairdryer is provided. Joint use of the washing machine is possible after consultation.

The special charm of the apartment is made up by its old character and many roof windows, from where one can enjoy a great view over the greenery. The view from the living room couch directly at our huge old red beech is especially scenic.

The apartment is part of a beautiful house built in the 1930s, located in the popular district Babelsberg Nord. Our family of four people lives on the first and second floor. Guests have their own seating area in our garden.

The apartment is located in 5 minutes walking distance to Lake Griebnitzsee, 2 minutes walking distance to the next bus stop and about 10 minutes walking distance to the next tram and metro stations. The metro takes 30 minutes to the Central Station of Berlin and 10 minutes to Potsdam Central. The Dutch quarter of Potsdam can be reached within 15 minutes by tram, ice cream places, restaurants and shops are located within walking distance to the apartment.

At the nearby metro station Griebnitzsee bicycles and canoes can be rented. The exclusive residential area Neubabelsberg with its unique villas is located closeby, the same applies to the film studios of Babelsberg, Lake Griebnitzsee and Parforceheide, a parc inviting for long walks, runs and bike rides. Glienicker Brücke (the bridge of Glienicke), Teltow canal, lake Wannsee and Parc Babelsberg are also not far.

The apartment in Griebnitzsee is super. Just like the pictures. So wide and comfortable, and pretty, and with a great view. I went with my husband , since I had to attend a scientific meeting at the University of Potsdam, campus Griebnitzsee. So it was 10 min walking, or 3 min by bike (they lent me a beautiful bike so I could return at noon to lunch with my husband). Walking through the neighbourhood is like wolaking in an open museum: landscape, buildings, houses (each nicer than the other); history (the famous treaty of Potsdam; the houses were the three great were lodged; the lake. Transportation to downtown Potsdam and to Sans Souci park and palace, was perfect; two trams and one bus very near. Christiane is a perfect host, she answers immediately the chats. You might read that the shower is a Little uncomfortable, but we immediately found a suitable position and enjoyed the shower. A supermarket at 100m (simple),and a very well equipped one at 10 min walk.

Super helpful hosts - we had a bit of a faff with late arrivals and they accommodated us very well. The place is lovely, and it's a great location if you're doing anything at the HPI, which is about a five minute walk from the front door. Supermarket and S-Bahn both nearby and Berlin city centre about 25 minutes by train. However - the shower in this place is basically unusable. You'll have to crouch in the bath! Don't let that put you off too much though!

Our hosts were charming and very helpful all round. The apartment was a wonderfully spacious place with a lot of character in the leafy environments of Lake Griebnitz.

We had a great stay at Christiane's lovely apartment. She was very hospitable and helped us around the place and area. Was kind enough to warn us regarding possible delay with the train to Berlin Hauptbahnhof and what to look out for. The area around the apartment - the lake and Potsdam itself - was all very beautiful ! Highly recommended.

I stayed in this lovely apartment for 6 nights whilst visiting my family in Potsdam. It was so nice, very clean and extremely well equipped. It is very comfortable and stylishly furnished. It has an efficient heating system with plenty of hot water. Christiane and Peter were excellent hosts and made me and my family feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

This great 3rd floor unit is located on top of a German family house. It's extremely clean and spacious. We had a family of four, but the place can easily accommodate more. The hosts were enthusiastic and eager to help with your needs. This one time during a pouring rain, we forgot to bring the house key with us and had to call Christiane for help, since nobody was home at that moment. She kindly helped us by asking her neighbor to open the door for us. Overall, highly recommended!
