About this listing
Town house in the middle of Heidelberg. Very spacious with super nice patio located in a friendly neighborhood.
Our little house used to be an old market hall. Now it is much more like a town house. In the first floor you find a very new kitchen, dining area with a big fridge, oven, stove, microwave, coffee machine, water boiler and dish washer, two convertible bed –sofas and two single bed-sofas in the winter garden. Adding up to six additinoal sleeping options. Especially bachelors and bacherlorettes, enjoy all sleeping together in the same house, giving the future bride or groom the possibilty to meet them all in a nice, more private sourrounding. In the winter garden, you can even watch the stars, falling asleep. The winter garden can be locked seperately. Even in cold and rainy days you can sit out here and enjoy our pretty little garden and the terrace outside. At first, the kitchen panel might let you think we have left you alone in the forest, but the warm and cozy atmosphere around in modern wooden hut style, will make you feel very comfortable soon. We also have a restroom for guests at this level. The equipment in the kitchen might vary according to your needs. Going up the internal spiral stairs you get to the second floor which also has floor heating like the first one does. A small indoor balcony lets a lot of light get into the room and you can enjoy a nice view onto the Tiefburg ( sunken castle). Of course the view in the third floor gets even better. But here, in the second floor we also have a small walk-inn closet, a bathroom with a corner bath tube and toilet.; certainly there is also a lavatory . This floor has two single beds ( each 90 cm wide) , a convertible sofa bed, a small secretary, a TV and radio, a shelf and a dresser. You can get up to four people sleeping here and still be able to add a baby bed. Let us know when you are booking how you want your beds.
Climbing up the spiral stairs again, you get to the third floor, which is directly under the roof. The walls are painted yellow and green and you feel like you are closer to the sun than you have ever been ;-) The front is completely covered with windows, which offers you the chance to see all over the center of our district and the old castles. We have just renovated the bathroom and equipped it with a double shower a lavatory and a toilet. A built-in closed will take care of your belongings. Two single beds ( Futon-style), two single convertibel bed-sofas, a TV, radio and VSR Player and a small desk, will make you feel able to relax here perfectly. We have the possibility to get up to four peole sleeping here, but no more space for baby beds then.
The house is located in the middle of the heart of Handschuhsheim-Heidelberg. On the one side we have the forest and the mountain and on the other side the fields. You can get everything you need in the reach of 300 meters. We have three bakeries, banks, post office, Cafés, a stationary shop, a hairdresser, beauty salons, a dry cleaner and much more. Also the grocery store is just around the corner. Our garden might be small but pretty, if you need more space you’ll find the graham park next door with a large playground.
The terrace gives you the possbility to enjoy the sun outside with your friends or have a barbecue.
If you plan to have a raqulett, fondue or other fancy dinners, let us know, we live just across the driveway and we are well equiped.
When you get out the door you almost fall into a cab (taxi) and the tramp is also only 200 meters away. Handschuhsheim is more like the rural district of Heidelberg, despite the clinics and DKFZ are nearly located as well. Only four stops away, you have reached the area clinic area, but also the Zoo, public pool and sports center. If you would like to get your own workout, you can get a guests pass at one of the many studios Pfitzenmeier has to offer.
We also offers bikes with helmets to rent. Additionally, we have a large car and can pick you up or drop you off if you need to.
For healthy food, you can get many of the fruits and vegetables which grow in the field simply by stepping out of the door. My parents in law sell fruit an vegtables on Saturdays.
To explain you more what we can offer it is easer to let you know, that we have three children and sometimes my mum’s dog visiting us. Therefore we can offer baby equipment when needed and even pet supply.
The washer and the dryer are not in the house, but you could use our laundry room, if you need to.
We would love to welcome you in our family and house.

Interaction with Guests
We live just across the driveway. The house next to you are my parents in law. The house in front are my husbands oncle and cousin and we live next door. I am always open for questions. I am there to help you.
I might check on you, just once in a while, to see if everything is alright.
It's a very safe and traditional area. The people are highly educated and watch out for one another. Please are really close to nature and we still grow our own vegtables and fruits in the fields around. It is a very historic area with two castle and a very only catholic church. On Saturdays there is market day. This district has more children then the average German does and they are very animal friendly. Many organic food stores and bakeries let you eat good food.
But you are also very close to downtown.
The best way to get aound are bikes and public transportation. The tram is only 100 meters away. You can park your car in the street or the big parking lot in front of the castle. We rent bikes if you need one. But if you need to be picked up or brought somewhere, we may be able to help you too.
Other Things to Note
I try to make everything look pretty. I like to make you feel comfortable. I hope you respect the work and love I put in this home and treat it with respect. I love to celebrate too, but don't trash my house.

Prima accomodatie, op rustige plek. Goed ontvangen, alles mooi schoon en netjes.
We dachten wel een tuin erbij te hebben, de mooie foto laat ongeveer alles zien wat er aan tuin is (niet groot dus). Je kan er wel lekker buiten ontbijten in ieder geval!
Nathalie made us feel very welcome when we arrived. We were there with our 3 children and she immediately brought out scooters and bikes for them to play with.
The apartment is very spacious with a bathroom on each floor.
There is a tram stop close by which was great to take us to the old town and to the castle and shopping district. Near the apartment are some really great restaurants (which Nathalie had recommended).
The only downside is parking not available inside the premises where the apartment is located and it was a bit difficult to find street parking. But other than that, we enjoyed our stay there.
We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad in Heidelberg! Mooi weer en veel bezienswaardigheden.
Het appartement was ruim. We waren met onze twee zoons. Op elke verdieping was een badkamer. Het enige minpuntje was dat er weinig parkeergelegenheid is. Gelukkig hebben we de auto bijna niet nodig gehad, omdat er op loopafstand een tramhalte is en je een dagkaart kunt kopen voor trein/tram/bus voor 4 personen. Zo konden we overal heen.
The house is very beautiful! All my 10 friends I visited were satisfied.
Many towels, fans and all the house equipped were good!
Nathalie is very kind and friendly.
In short, I want to stay again!
이 숙소 좋습니다~
We enjoyed our three night stay at the International House of Exchange! We were a group of 6 people and the house had plenty of room for our stay. The house is located very close to the tram station so getting around Heidelberg is very easy via the tram. There are also some great places to eat within a short walk from the house. We had a great visit to Heidelberg and would stay here again!
Nathalie was very friendly and responsive from the initial reservation until we left. Check-in and check-out was very easy. Nathalie provided recommendations for places to eat and is available for questions or to help out if needed.
Lovely house, great location - very close to S-bahn. Great for a group. We were travelling with expensive bikes and we were able to store them in the winter garden. Thanks Natalie!
