About this listing
quiet in the backyard with sunny balcony. sleeping room with double bed, living room connects with open kitchen, spiral staircase leads from living room under the roof with space for two additional people to sleep (seperate or together).
Balcony has space for 6 to sit and is sunny from late morning to evening. Sleeping room has sun in the morning (and curtains;-), living room and kitchen are sunny from morning til late afternoon.
We are a familiy living next door, very pleased to welcome guests - german author and theater director and greek air hostess with our 4 years old daughter. The apartment we offer connects to our own place through a double wing door which guests of course can keep locked.
The building is from 1899 and has been freshly renovated by 2008. The house is inhabited 'western international' - spanish, scottish, denish, israeli, italian, french, dutch - ok and a few german people live here, most of them successfully working in the creative sector. People are quiet here and respect each others privacy.
Ideal location for visitors of Berlinale (2 S-Bahn stops from Potsdamer Platz, the festival centre) or events at the Tempelhof Airport area (Bread & Butter, Berlin Festival etc.), or visitors of the Hebbel am Ufer / HAU theatre (15 min. by feet through the park or 1 metro stop)
We love the atmosphere of Kreuzbergstr. and Bergmannstr. area with all their cafés and little shops and some very good restaurants, the market hall at Marheinike square etc. Tempelhof area where events like Bread & Butter and Berlin festival take place is about 20 mins walking distance. Apart from the Tempelhof airfield park we are in direct neighbourhood with two other very different and amazing parks - Victoria park and Park am Gleisdreieck.
Where to find the best cake, the best shops, the coffee places with the best design, how to get to your favorite destinations and which are the best biergardens around - we'll be happy to tell you. It is the part of Kreuzberg which rather is dominated by a very international crowd of creative people. We also like very much Schoeneberg which has a complete different groove and charme, and is in a walking distance, with one of the most beautiful saturday markets and some great quarters to roam around.
I'll provide you with a first fresh breakfast, of course, and it will be all organic, like the brea I bake myself.
a crib is available once you ask us.
Smoking is welcome on the nice balcony that connects with the living room.
feel home. enjoy asking us whenever you need assistance or just want to chat. smokers are welcome to use the balcony or on the occasion of a cigarette with a drink just open the window afterwards; you're welcome to leave beds and towels as you've used them, Bins for waste separation are provided.
Leiligheten er kjempefin og beskrivelsene holder det de lover. Den ligger også i et rolig og fint område av Kreuzberg, ikke langt ifra gode restauranter og S-Bahn. Pigi er veldig hyggelig og tok godt imot oss. Leiligheten var ren og i flott stand. Det eneste aberet er at den lå i 4.etasje og at vindeltrappen i leiligheten er litt liten. Godt å vite hvis man er dårlig til bens. Ellers var alt kjempeflott og kan trygt anbefales til andre!
Our Berlin experience was improved by being able to stay with Pigi in her spacious, well-cared for apartment.
We loved our stay at Pigis apartment. It is very handy for the train and subway stations, and has been decorated in a stylist fashion. Pigi made us feel very comfortable, and even kindly provided breakfast on our first morning
It is a lovely appartment in a very nice neighborhood! It has everything you need, the beds are good, the bathroom is nice, the kitchen is great and so is the balcony.
When we arrived Pigi allowed us to use the elevator, that was very nice of her. Do keep in mind that the rest of your stay you have to walk the stairs to the 5th floor.
There are two supermarkets around the corner and it is only a few minutes walk to the underground station (yorkstrasse) which will easily get you anywhere in Berlin.
Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit bei Pigi.Sie ist eine wirklich tolle Gastgeberin, super hilfsbereit , sehr freundlich und mit einem großen Herzen.DANKE Pigi !!
Die Wohnung ist groß,wunderschön,hell, besonders stylisch und mit Liebe (website hidden) ist wirklich alles da was das Herz begehrt und das in schön .Wir sind überall schnell gewesen und alles was es in Kreuzberg sehenswertes gibt ist ein Katzensprung,wie auch der schöne Park.Einkaufen konnten wir ums Eck und gemüdlich auf dem Balkon sitzen.
Es hätte besser nicht sein können und wir würden sehr,sehr gerne wieder kommen.
Pigi war eine tolle Gastgeberin . Wir haben uns sehr wohl bei Ihr gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist toll. Auf Ihre Tipps kann man sich verlassen.
We loved our stay in Pigi's place!
The apartment had just everything we needed - and all in great style, perfectly clean and comfortable. we really felt like at home.
There's plenty of space in all rooms and the kitchen and balcony are great (and I got to know that french press coffee machine, I need to get one myself).
The neighborhood is nice and quiet and we got to meet cool people around.
Pigi is amazing and I feel fortunate to have met her. thanx for everything!
About the Host, Pigi
When our daughter Zoi was born and my company Olympic Airlines was sold I packed my things and moved from Athens to Berlin where my husband Daniel has his homebase as an author and director for theater, radio and TV. I love to take b/w photos, to bake my own bread, and I love to live in this area of Berlin.
My name is greek and means fountain. If you want to pronounce it right, take "Yipee", cut it in the center and swap to Pee-Yee. Guess why our daughter has the name Zoi. It means "life" and "fountain" and "life" have the same name day in the greek calender...
Ich spreche auch ein bisschen deutsch, wir kommen schon klar... ich freue mich auf Sie.
