The room of freedom is a really bright and quite three-bedroom appartement ( transfer - rooms), a large kitchen with nice southwest balcony and big bathroom with washer and dryer.
This is a three bed room appartement in a three familiy house, just around the corner from the International House of Exchange - the other listing I have in here. The house, also has only one right angeled corner it seams and was build around 1920. My friend says, it is the oldest house in the street. .. but, the windows, kitchen and bathroom are completely renovated. So you wallk into that old farmer wooden door and see my friends house, which has been built much later. .. you see a little dew pound. .. then you go up some stairs.. follow the creaky wooden stairs and enter your appartement. You are right were you belong.. in the kitchen, which is quite large and you find a nice sunny balcony to your left. Going through the kitchen with a lare dinning table and designer chairs :-) for up to ten people, you get to the first bed (website hidden) here, you find a sofa-bed and one converitbel sofa-bed together with nice antique furniture and beautyfull pictures in sea theme decoration. If you continue, you get to the second bedroom with a king size bed with drwas below and a very pretty old glass shelf with awsome artbooks, lovely decorated. Also we added here an aditional convertible sofabed and another dresser. Continuing to the third bedroom, you find another big king size bed and large build in wardrobe- In here, evryone should be able to fit in their clothing.You also find the TV in here, which could e moved to another room, if prefferred. After, you cross a little hallway, which is perfect to store your lugguage. Thourgh here, you get into the very birght bathroom equiped with a washing machine, a dryer, a shower, a sink and a toilet. .. it all does not seem to be very practical, but the appartement is always up for a suprise. .. So... if you are more then a couple, you have to cross each others room, to get to either the bathroom or the kitchen, but I think, you are "old " enough or open and tolerant enough not to let you bother this.
The kitchen is fully equiped and you will find everyhting you need. Just tip us for what you have consumed.. would be very appreciated.
For healthy food, you can get many of the fruits and vegetables which grow in the field simply by visitng us on Saturdays, because this is market day.
To explain you more what we can offer it is easer to let you know, that we have two children and sometimes my mum’s dog visiting us. Therefore we can offer baby equipment when needed and even supplies for the dog.
Can't wait to meet you.

Interaction with Guests
This appartement is close to our house, but we will only get here once we are asked to or need to fix something. Therefore it is a peacefull place just for yourselves.
The house is located close to the heart of Handschuhsheim-Heidelberg. On the one side we have the forrest and the mountain and on the other side the fields. You can get everything you need in the reach of 300 Meters. We have three bakeries, banks, post office, Cafés, a stationary shop, a hairdresser, beauty salons, a dry cleaner and much more. Also the grocery store is just around the corner. Our garden might be small but pretty, if you need more space you’ll find a playground around the corner. The tramp is also only 200 meters away, and the cabs 400 meters, going towards the IHOE.Of course you can call the cab, to come to your place directely. Handschuhsheim is more the rural district of Heidelberg, Despite the clinics and DKFZ are nearly located as well. Only four stops away and you reached the clinic area, but also the Zoo, public pool and sports center. If you would like to get your own workout, you can get a guests pass at one of the many studios Pfitzenmeier has to offer. If you prefer to workout with Cindy Crawford, we can lend you our exercise DVD;-)
Please check my other listing for more information about the region.
The best way to get around are bikes. We already have some parked in the dirveway for your convinience. The tram is only 200 meters away but is not realy cheap. From the main station you can use the #23, #24 and #5. Almost every five minutes you can catch a tram. The station you need to exit is called Hans-Thoma-Platz ( Handschuhsheim -Nord). With #23 you get down town to Bismarkplatz, #24 to the university hospital.
If you would like to enjoy the riversite, go on a boat, they offer great trips.
Cars are not really welcome in Heidelberg, but you can park yours in the driveway or the sidewalk in the street for free.
Other Things to Note
I like to keep the character of a house or appartement by not making too many changes to the interior and exterior. Therefore, you get historic value and individual floor plans.
If you would like to rent the appartment for longterm, we can take out a bed and add sofas and desks for example. We can also make you a special offer upon your needs and adapt furniture accoring to your needs.
Smoking in the appartement is strictly prohibited! If you put your cigarette butt and ash in an ashtray, you can smoke on outdoors.
We don't mind night live, but don't exaggerate. Remember your freedom ends, when you start limiting someone else's freedom :-)
You bring additional guest, other than with the booking please let us know. We like to make the beds for additional beds ourselves.
It would be nice if you take care of your electricity consumption. Please don't leave the light on if you don't have to. Don't forget to close the windows if you leave. Also clear the air sometimes by opening the windows to ventilation. Give attention to water kondensation on the windows and doors or the surface might get fungi.
We have a barbecue, please let us know if you want to borrow one.
All in all respect and cooperation is the ideal way, to come along.
Wir sind zum Silvester in Heidelberg angekommen. Als wir Nathalie angerufen haben, ist sie schnell gekommen um uns alles zeigen und erklaeren. Alles in der Wohnung war in Ordnung, alles war super. Das war eine der beste Silvester in unserem Leben
We all love this house, great furniture with everything we need, dishes and cups are adorable. Clean and tidy rooms and not far from city center .Nathalie is so kind and recommended us good restaurant.
Natalie always replied to email requests very promptly. We arrived earlier than planned but as she lives nearby she came straight over with the baby (gorgeous). It was really welcoming to see my name on the doorbell already.
Es war alles bestens. Die Wohnung ist genau so, wie es in der Beschreibung steht und wie man es auf den Fotos sieht. Jederzeit wieder gerne!
Very compact, high density residential neighborhood, close to the light rail into downtown.
Handschuhsheim is still part of Heidelberg city. Other guests experience the appartement as extremely quiet but close to down town. All of the houses in the area are 1-3 Family houses. No skyscrapers or multiple appartement buildings.
I was not there in person, when Gary stayed at out appartement, otherwise I believe, his comments would have been much better. :-)
Very easy to find. Good location near tram stop Hans Thoma Platz. 2 good double beds plus a couch. A baby bed was a great bonus. New bathroom. Dryer was very handy as it saves time after laundry on a short stay. Slightly confused about rubbish sorting as there were so many bins but that's a local custom and only a good thing in the end of the day. The fridge wasn't stocked up as described but we would not have expected such anyway. We paid for accommodation only and facility-wise everything was good.
Alles gut, gerne wieder. Sehr nette Gastgeberin. Wohnung hat alles, was man braucht.
