Description

The space

A room better than where President Obama slept - in the Adlon which is just next to our apartment. Just five minutes walk. The penthouse apartment of an historical building from the GDR. On our floor the daughter of the former leader Honecker from the GDR lived. A big -yes- cardboard double-bed. A view of the Holocaust Memorial, and leaning a little leftwards the Reichstag, and the Berlin TV tower from the 8th floor. Warm and quiet (triple-glazed windows) and could not be more central. With the windows open it is also relatively quiet, because the room leads toward the courdyard. We are in the middle of the city, though, so there will be a little humming almost always...

We are three polyglott beings who love to have guests from all over the world. Our son, born in 2009 my husband, a born New Zealander and me a born and raised West Berliner. We will share our bathroom and kitchen with you. Means you can use everything from dish washing to washing mashine, as well as waterboiler and oven.

Also the Vitamix kitchen mashine is waiting to produce the most delicious power smoothies for you.
And if you like vegan, the first breakfast is included, too. Either I can show you everything or I help you preparing, or we even have breakfast together. As it fits for all of s.

We are really easy going and you can make yourself a home not only in your room but also in the spacious, warm and bright living room. Also two people or a parent with a child will happily fit in (my son has a big kids room and is almost always willing to make friends and share.
Of course it is important to be aware of the fact that with a four year old kid in the house, its not gonna be as quiet as in a monastery in the mornings ;)
We really appreciate if you feel at home. You are always welcome in living room and kitchen, its spacious. You are warmly invited to use everthing, also dont bother with buying the little neccessities like coffee, tea, sugar, salt etc. its all available and at your disposal!
You can have as much privacy or community as you wish.

Nice neighbourhood, a wild mixture of old Berliners from east and west, as well as embassy employees from all the embassys around.
Biggest Shopping Mall of Berlin in front of the house.

Three minutes walk to Potsdamer Platz, and all transport services. As well around 4 minutes to the beautiful Tiergarten, 10 til Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden etc...Very secure. Great view of Berlin's fireworks in two directions. Fast DSL wireless internet for your laptop etc.

Very good connection with trains, busses and subway very close (three minutes)

Within 6 Minutes by bus to Main Train Station, 20 Minutes by bus to Airport TXL (plus ten min walking to the bus station), 45 Minutes to Schönefeld

Guest access

You are always welcome in the living room and kitchen. We just talk about everything - I normally dont cook complicated meals

Interaction with guests

just as much or as little as you want.
We live quite close together here on 72m² so we will have some encounters when we are there. We have another place in the north of Berlin, where we are a lot, too, my son and I.

The neighborhood

the wild mixture of old real Berliners from the former GDR and many multicultural people from all the embassys around...

Berlin, Germany · Joined in October 2011

A real Berliner, in love with the city and in love with life. We, my husband, my little son (born in 2009) and I, love to have guests and like to connect with people from all over the world. My husband comes from New Zealand, living in Berlin since 2002. We are both interested in creating a new consciousness and culture in this world, because we think it is high time and very much needed. My husband is a communication consultant and I am a health consultant. We speak German and English and I speak Spanish, too.

Our big town apartment we rent out when we are somewhere travelling ourselves. When we are at home we rent out one of our bedrooms.
We mostly have vegan food, but are not dogmatic about it. So you will find things like ricemilk and soymilk, coconutoil and whole sugar etc and can give you good hints for the good shops to get vegan stuff.

The apartment "cozy refuge" is sometimes my own little refuge and some of the times reserved for guests. Who wants to have an idea about what kind of sound the trains make, please watch the little video:
