Discover Berlin from our beautiful design apartment featuring high ceilings, original mouldings, luxury bathroom with real Finnish sauna, contemporary art and large kitchen in hip and lovely Prenzlauer Berg. Central and convenient to Alexanderplatz!

The space

We encourage you to read this entire description:

This space blends modern minimalism with traditional Berlin character. The entire apartment was renovated in 2014 under the supervision of two brilliant Finnish designers, Martti Mela and Tuula Vitie.

The apartment is in an Altbau building constructed in 1906.

Size: 1259 square feet/117square meters.

Apartment features:

Beautiful high ceilings with original mouldings

Free Wi-Fi and selection of books about Berlin

Large kitchen with all new appliances including a Bialetti espresso pan, chef's set of knives, toaster, blender, kettle, induction cooktops, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The kitchen is stocked with olive oil, balsamic and other every day essentials as well as some great cookbooks.

Luxury bathroom with complimentary Aesop premium shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion. Hair dryer and iron available as well.

Real Finnish sauna. The sauna stove is Tulikivi and was brought from Finland to Berlin. The sauna was handcrafted by a German master craftsman and woodworker under the supervision of the two Finnish designers.

A balcony overlooking lively Prenzlauer Allee.

Baby bed, a high chair and kids toys, books, and puzzles.

We use eco-friendly cleaning supplies and the apartment is professionally cleaned.

One bedroom overlooking the courtyard and one bedroom/2nd living room with very large, heavy doors and independent access to the bathroom, guaranteeing privacy for its occupants. The bedroom overlooking the courtyard has a comfy bed with box springs and the 2nd bedroom has wooden bed handcrafted by Walden Beds.

The place can sleep five comfortably but is best suited for four.

PLEASE NOTE: The apartment is one flight of stairs up and there is no elevator. Our apartment is beautiful but it is on a busy street, PrenzlauerAllee. The tram runs right down this large boulevard. The master bedroom overlooks a peaceful courtyard but the 2nd bedroom overlooks lively PrenzlauerAllee. The most beautiful parts of the neighbourhood, like Kollwitz Platz, the Water tower, etc. are a few blocks away.

Also, we do not have a grand entrance or a grand lobby. Rather, the entrance to the building is often covered in graffiti! Very Berlin but not for everyone!

We are happy to host private dinner parties, corporate events and professional photo shoots and have experience with all 3 types of events.

If you have any questions about the place or the layout, don't hesitate to send me a message. We always do our best to accommodate our guests' special requests.

Guest access

The apartment is near bicycle rentals, several organic grocery stores (regular supermarkets too), and all of the wonderful cafes, restaurants, bars, brunch spots, and parks that Prenzlauer Berg has to offer.

There are great playgrounds for kids close to the apartment. Our favorite is just across the street on Sredzkistrasse because it has a circus theme.

Interaction with guests

When we rent out our place, we're usually out of town so our friends Essi and Valentin host for us. They are adorable young Berliners with tons of knowledge about the local art scene and night life. Their hosting style is very professional, polite, warm and wonderful. Our guests are very appreciative of their hosting style!

We have put down Check-out time as noon and Check-in time as 3, but we can be flexible except in cases where we need to turn the apartment around quickly for the next guest.

The host was exceptionally helpful prior to our trip. On the day we arrived we were met by a kind, informative English-speaking German student. Perfect in every way.

Mary's apartment is a minimalist gem in a lovely neighborhood and I could not recommend it more. In addition, communication was prompt, coordination was seamless, and I was even able to pick up the keys a couple hours earlier which I appreciated after a long flight. I visit Berlin every couple months and look forward to future stays at this wonderful property!

Thank you Mary and Essy for sharing your lovely home. We stayed in Airbnb's in Amsterdam, Prague and Vienna and your apartment was the nicest! The trams were convenient and we appreciate you calling a cab for us on our departure.

Mary's apartment is absolutely gorgeous. It has everything you might need and more. We enjoyed the space, comfort and warm sauna. The neighborhood was wonderful to discover too - great restaurants, cafes and boutiques all around. We loved our stay and are planning to come back!

This place is top notch. Heated bathroom floors, legit sauna with scented oils, rain-style shower, two nice beds, fully equipped kitchen, and automatic heat! Also books and children's games for those who want them. Lots of sunlight, shades on every window, and a buzzer/intercom for guests. The host gave me a map of the area, a list of places to try, and was accommodating when I needed to drop my luggage off early. Do be aware that there is NO stereo or TV.

We love good food, films and books and spend as much time walking as possible. We try to keep work to a minimum and enjoy life. We love staying in other people's places when I travel and I love being an Air bnb host.
