Great communication beforehand, everything was clear and went smoothly. Although we didn't meet Lulu, Mieke or Jeff, they made sure we were able to get the keys. Concerning the apartment, it was huge! Much prettier and more spacious than in the pictures. Absolutely fantastic street, lots of little bars, restaurants, shops and next to the Mauerpark (I recommend on Sundays!) Excellent apartment, beds and sanitary facilities. The dishwasher was out of order though.
Really nice flat in a wonderful neighbourhood! We had a great time visiting Berlin from this area, easy access to public transportation and nice restaurants.
First of all. Location is very good. BUT it is Obvious that nobody lives here and an agency runs this. I believ Lulu does not exist. Nobody in the previous experiences has ever seen her. She is on permanent holiday. The 'friend' Jef, who is very inflexible and does not respond to messages does the work. The dish washer is at least 4 mth out of order. The olive oil is 6 mth over date, the couch is broken and there are no utensils to scrape an baked egg out of the pan. There is one wine glass.
When we got there, another family was helped by Jef in the nextdoor appartment.
If you consider that this is run for the money than it is an not so clean place and does not have a separated toilet and bathroom and you shower in the bath. There is hardly any living room, only a table with 4 chairs in the kitchen.
On the positive side, the beds are pretty good and there is a lot of space in the sleepingrooms.
Please stay in this very nice street and, or neighbourhood but think of another appartment. Lulu and Mieke won't mind, they probably do not exist.
GO GET IT was the perfect place for us to stay. Lulu was very easy to communicate with. Sorry we didn't get to meet in person. It was very easy to get in the apartment and everything was exactly like you see in the pictures. Would love to come back sometime.
Lulu's apartment was exactly as pictured. It is in a great location, close to public transport which made it very easy to get around the city and to the airport. There are also many excellent cafes and bars within walking distance. We had a very positive experience and would recommend the apartment to others.
We had a wonderful time in Berlin, Prenzlauerberg and the appartement of Lulu and Mieke. It's very spacious, quiet, finely decorated and very clean. A typical Prenzlauer home I suppose.
If we come back to Berlin, we'll definitely want to stay here again. Thanks Lulu and Mieke!

About the Host, Lulu & Mieke
Me (dark hair) and my friend Mieke (blond hair) have been friends for ages. We both love traveling - we hitch-hiked the pan american highway from Canada to Brasil when we were 20 (our mothers hated it!) - and we want to offer our guests a "home away from home" how we would like it.
Both of us think that not only the sight-seeing highlights like Brandenburg gate are interesting, but also the normal districts, the houses and streets are of major importance for getting an insight view of the city. This is the advantage of a vacation rental.
We hope that all our guests are happy with their stay and are always happy to help - except too late at night of course : )
See you in Berlin,
Lulu & Mieke
