The Space

Hello and thanks for your interest! We are a family of 5 (American mom, German dad and 3 sons) offering our fully-built out basement/cellar for your comfortable stay in Munich. We are located in the quiet, pleasant, green Obermenzing neighborhood of Munich (very close to the gardens of Schloss Nymphenburg). The most convenient S-Bahn is Pasing - 15 minute walk. From Pasing, the S-Bahn runs every 5 minutes into central Munich (journey time from Pasing to Central Station is approx 15 minutes). If you are driving, parking is free, plentiful and right in front of the building.

Apartment built recently (2009) -- solid German construction, wood floors throughout, under-floor heating, triple-glazed windows, quality finishes. You have YOUR OWN PRIVATE ENTRANCE directly to the room with key. Room has a double bed, table/chairs, WiFi. There is also an extra twin mattress (real mattress, not an airbed). All linens and towels are included. You have your own small bathroom with sink and toilet (it is upstairs -- not attached to the room). You can use the shower in the master bathroom.

We are offering the room at a low price because there is a hitch. The basement has a circular staircase that opens to the living room/kitchen and does not close off completely (see pic). You have 100% visual privacy (ie, we can't see you and you can't see us -- unless you try really hard!) but during 'awake' hours, you will hear us. We commit to keeping it quiet from 10pm to 7am but come 7, we are awake as are our 3 young boys (ages 4-6). If you are a super sound sleeper and bring your earplugs, you will be able to catch a few extra zzz's. It usually quiets down at night around 8pm and then we go to bed at 10pm. There is a door that closes off the bedrooms so you should hear little to nothing at night.

There is a 100 euro security deposit to cover the very expensive (if lost) key!! This is held by airbnb via your credit card. Luckily, we have yet to have a guest misplace the key.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Email in German or English.

Thanks for reading and hope to see you soon.

Guest Access

Feel free to enjoy our large garden and share our kitchen. Kitchen is stocked for you with breakfast basics: coffee, tea, juice, milk, fruit, muesli, rolls, condiments. Help yourselves to breakfast! As mentioned above, you have your own bathroom and private entrance.

Interaction with Guests

We are here for you. You are welcome to interact as much or as little as you want!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is pretty and quiet (and very quiet at night for sleeping). It is also convenient to Pasing train station. Pasing is 4 quick subway stops west of Central Station Hauptbahnhof. Pasing is also its own train station and some regional and international trains stop directly at Pasing. If you are arriving by train, book your train to Munchen-Pasing. Even if the train is not stopping in Pasing, they will include a free s-bahn ticket with your train ride to travel Hbf-Pasing.

Getting around

5 minute walk to bus then 2 stops to Pasing train/subway station. From Pasing, you can quickly get anywhere you need to go.

Other Things to Note

This is a relatively quiet neighborhood so if you are hungry, it's best to get food before you get here. You can always grab something at Pasing train station (if arriving by train). On the south side of Pasing station is a city center with shopping mall and lots of other stores, restaurants and cafes.

  • It's our first airbnb experience and we were lucky to choose Nicole and Kay's place. This family is very welcoming, boys are awesome. Nicole gave us maps, guides and a lot of tips about Munich. We really enjoyed our morning and evening conversations with Nicole and Kay. Everything in the house is exactly as described plus very clean and cozy. The location is very convenient: we left Munich by train directly from Pasing train station without changes at the central station. We highly recommend the place and hope to meet this family again.

  • Nicole and her family were excellent hosts! I felt incredibly comfortable during my entire stay. It almost felt like I was staying with friends or relatives! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and the house is located relatively close to the center of Munich. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Munich.

  • It was very good to stay at Nicole and Kay's place, even if for just a couple days. They are very warm and interested in people also. We talked a lot in those few days and Kay even helped me with some German stuff that I had to work with. The kids are also awesome and a very good alarm for the :)
    The room is very comfortable and despite the hitch, very private. If one wonders, there is no problem with that at all. All other amenities were also good and Nicole made an extra effort to help me with the laundry (thanks for that, Nicole! :). I do recommend them for any one staying in this area of Munich, that is also not far from the center with the S-bahn.

  • Great room - very central and easily accessible location for day trips and experiencing Oktoberfest. Very kind and helpful hosts - great communication too. Were made to feel like family and we definitely plan on staying here again in the future!!!

  • Familie Killmann ist eine sehr offene, freundliche und liebenswerte Familie. Die drei jungen Kinder sorgen für reichlich Unterhaltung am Küchentisch und auch ansonsten war das Klima immer sehr freundschaftlich. Besonders die Spontaneität bei unserer Buchung einen Tag im Voraus hat uns sehr gut gepasst.

    Die Unterkunft im Keller ist mit einem Bett für 2 Personen und einer weiteren Matratze für 3 Personen völlig ausreichend. Das Gästebad im Erdgeschoss und die Dusche im großen Badezimmer sind sehr modern und sauber. Das Frühstück ließ keine Wünsche offen und es hat sehr gut geschmeckt. Die Kommunikation mit den Gastgebern war reibungslos. Je nach Lust und Laune wurde wahlweise auf Deutsch oder Englisch miteinander kommuniziert.

    Insgesamt waren meine beiden Begleiter und ich absolut zufrieden mit dem Aufenthalt bei Nicole und ihrer Familie. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt definitv und mit einem schnellen Anschluss zum Zentrum war die Lage für Ausflüge im Herzen Münchens ideal. Nochmals vielen Dank für die Unterkunft und vielleicht bis zum nächsten Jahr ;-)

  • Had a great time in Munich. Nicole, Kay and the kids were great.
    We wanted to spend time in Munich, as we had visited the city before, but only for a very short stay 17 years ago.
    Nicole had the plan and was very helpful in getting us familiar with the transportation system and what to see in the area.
    We spent 7 days with the Family and had a ball.

  • Nicole and her family are lovely people to stay with. This is my second time staying with them and they are wonderful help. Location is perfect (only 30mins from centre of Munich) with great connections by train. The area of their house is beautiful. The room made available to you is perfect and private with a separate entrance to the room. Myself and my friends had a great time staying here and would recommend this to everyone!

  • This nice bnb is about a 15 min walk from Pasing station, in a quite neighborhood. Nicole's family is great (the kids were lots of fun). They were very friendly and helpful with getting around Munich. We enjoyed our stay, even if Nicole is a Longhorn (U.T. Grad). ;)

  • We had a very pleasant stay with nicole and her family.Everything she mentions in the description is 100% accurate and true. All family members were incredibly open to talk to and Nicole gave us a lot of advice on what to see during our visit. We would definitely stay with them again. Hope you guys are having a fun trip to Denmark.

About
Family of 5 living in Munich, Germany - American mom (Nicole), German dad (Kay), three sons. We are relaxed at home and active outdoors. Kay works in the green building industry, certifying European buildings based on the US LEED system. I stay busy with the three boys, who are 5 and 3 (twins). We speak English and German at home and I am always grateful to practice my Spanish and Kay enjoys Russian. Our sons love having guests -- as such, you will receive a very enthusiastic welcome :-) We do airbnb because we enjoy traveling and meeting new people and find it fun to be on the receiving end.
