Our semi-detached house is located in Petershause in the former so-called "Sternenviertel" ("star quarter") in Konstanz. We are located within walking distance to the shores of Lake Constance, shopping areas and bus stops with direct connections to the city centre (one stop just a few meters from the front door). Our house has a garden with various grills and a smoker which you are welcome to use. Beneath the roof there is a comfortable 28 square meter guest apartment with individual charm that is well suited for three adults or two adults with two children. The apartment consists of two separate main rooms: a bedroom with a large, comfortable double bed, and a living and eating area with a pullout sofa bed for additional guests. The apartment has its own bathroom with shower and toilet. To access the apartment guests use the common stairs. Upstairs you will enjoy full privacy and a well equipped apartment which includes free WIFI, satellite TV with VHS-player and an eclectic collection of videos for a rainy day, a kitchenette, mini-oven, refrigerator, radio/cassette player, as well as a robot vacuum cleaner. One adult or two children can sleep comfortably on the sofa bed. Guests are also welcome to use our garden and various grills and smoker. Our six year old daughter is happy to meet other children, but also couples and singles will feel welcome and at home here. Three bus stops with direct connections to the city centre and various shopping areas can be found in front of the house or in close walking distance. Our guest apartment is also ideal for visitors with friends or relatives in the Konstanz hospital, which is only two minutes walking distance away. We will be happy to help you with insider tips of what to see and do in Konstanz and are looking forward to meeting you!
If you do not want to spend your vacation in a lifeless and anonymous hotel room but rather in a guest apartment with personal charm and atmosphere, then you will be be happy staying with us. Our house was built in 1934 and has an interesting history. It was once inhabited by Alfons Beck, a victim and survivor of nazism for whom there is a tripping-stone memorial in the Bodanstrasse in Konstanz. Before the war Beck was an active communist, and after buying the house we found many relics and items that attest to Beck's history, including a printing press in the basement with which Beck used to print anti-nazi material. We found many other historical items, books, furniture, photographs and paintings which now hang in the guest apartment and we invite you to look, discover and travel back in time. We consciously left many quaint and interesting documents in the shelves and drawers of the desk and reading corner, including, for example, a brochure titled "Russia's Atombomb: its Astrology Explained," which we simply found too curious and fascinating to pack away. There is much to discover in our clean and well cared for guest apartment with modern comforts and amenities. Should you have questions, need help or want tips you will find your friendly hosts right outside the doorstep. If you want solitude and privacy, than you can simply escape into the cozy apartment, relax on the sofa in front of the TV or lounge on the bed with a good book.
The city of Konstanz has a visitor's tax of 2.00 Euros per night for each visitor over 16 years of age. For this, guests receive a guest pass with which they can ride city buses for free. The guest pass also provides numerous discounts and reductions around the lake.
I have spent a wonderful time in Konstanz. Annette and Bill were great hosts. Their place is neat and clean and I got their friendly welcome. Their place is well located with easy access and privacy as well.
We stayed for 6 nights on Yuletide at Virginia Holiday Home named after a pretty girl the daughter of a wonderful couple Annette and Bill. The house is quite near to the centre of Konstanz. Only 15 minutes on foot and about 3 – 5 minutes by bus. Annette provided us with guest passes to ride local busses free of charge. The guest apartment is on the upper floor, but the staircase is slope and there is no problem to climb upstairs with luggage. Twin beds with duvets are very comfortable and a wide sofa in the living room too. The apartment is very clean, cozy and well equipped with kitchenware. The Internet connection was perfect.
But most of all we appreciate the hospitality of Bill and Annette. They were very kind, careful and friendly to us enduring our noisy and stir tenure. They made everything so that we are to feel comfortable and warm regardless of cold and damp weather.
Thank you so much indeed, Annette and Bill. We felt so comfortable that nearly stayed for a longer time. We would highly recommended Virginia Home to travellers.
We went to Constance to visit a friend and we really enjoyed our stay, also thanks to this beautiful apartment. It is really comfortable and there is everything one would need. We really appreciated the kindness and the hospitality of Bill, Annette and Virginia. We hope to come back soon!
Sehr gemütliche Ferienwohnung und nette Vermieter. Gerne wieder!
Me and my wife stayed 20-24 Sept 2013 at Annette's, Bill's and Virginia's home, in their very comfortable guest apartment under the roof. All gadgets functioned perfectly, including the bread slicer and the Irobot Rumba.
Our hosts were exceedingly friendly: they shared home-made pizza and (a lot of) wine with us, and many pieces of advise about Konstanz. They let us use their bike for a tour to Mainau. Annette and Bill are very interesting and knowledgeable persons and our conversations were, in my opinion, very interesting. Virginia just started 1st grade: we wish her good luck.
We are looking forward to coming back.
Nice little spot!
Très bon accueil et adresse. Annette et Bill sont très chaleureux et accueillants. La chambre est bien et la cuisine-séjour est très bien équipée avec tout ce qui faut pour cuisiner et se détendre. Il y a un super marché ouvert de 8h à 22h à 5 minutes à pied avec devant tous les bus pour le centre ville. Les bus qui passent devant desservent le ferry et Mainau ce qui est super.
Zentral gelegene saubere Ferienwohnung im Dachgeschoss mit sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern.
Vielen Dank für das herzliche Willkommen, wir kommen gerne wieder.
Nicely kept place to stay in. Both Annette & Bill are great hosts to interact with..
