About this listing
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 eight 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.

Einen netteren Gastgeber hatten wir noch nie.
Es war die Offenheit und Herzlichkeit, die uns überraschte.
Nur drei Übernachtungen dauerte unsere Anwesenheit.
Tagsüber jedoch waren wir nicht im Haus.
Keinerlei Probleme und es war komplett alles vorhanden.
Ein sauberes Haus mit Gemütlichkeit.
Liebe Annette, lieber Bill!
Ich kam, sah und lebte (mich sofort ein). Die FeWo war sauber und aufgeräumt, alles Notwendige vorhanden, die nächste Einkaufsmöglichkeit nicht weit, die Nachbarschaft ruhig. Dank des zweirädrigen Zusatzes konnte ich Konstanz flexibel erkunden. Vielen Dank für die unkomplizierte und freundliche Aufnahme.
Le logement est sous les toit, la chaleur s'est révélée étouffante en aout dans ce logement, et l'hote n'a pas fait les investissements minimaux pour rendre cette situation supportable en équipant les fenêtres de toit de stores extérieurs occultant la lumière et le rayonnement du soleil.
D'autres points illustrent cet aménagement a minima : dans la kitchenette, le robinet de récupération (qui n'est pas un robinet de cuisine) ne permet pas d'y glisser la bouilloire. il faut donc aller remplir la bouilloire dans la salle d'eau.
Wir haben uns in der Ferienwohnung Virginia sehr wohl gefühlt und hatten alles was wir einen schönen Urlaub brauchten.
We enjoyed our stay. The flat is not very large, but well designed. We were three (two teenagers and an adult) and stay there for two weeks without any problems. The location is great: near the lake, near the town center... Bill and Anette were very nice. As we knew the town very well, we didn't need their help, but they were willing to help and to talk to us.
I really recommand the place.
Die Wohnung ist im Dachgeschoss eines wunderbar belebten Hauses. Auf dem Weg nach oben kann man einen kurzen Schwatz mit Anette und Bill halten oder Virginia ein paar Kunststücke vorführen. Am Mittwoch könnte man sogar ein Bier zu wunderschöner live Musik im verwunschenen Garten genissen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Ferienwohnung verfügt über alles was nötig ist.
Annette and Bill are super-gests! We feel very confortable and they have contributed a lot to a pleasant stay in Konstanz!!
