Wie haben uns als Familie in diesem Apartement sehr wohl gefühlt. Einerseits die ruhige Lage und andererseits die Nähe zum Zentrum in Karlsruhe sind optimal. Zudem war das Aparterment sehr geräumig, sauber und top eingerichtet. Auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen!
Nicole’s apartment occupies the ground floor of her 3 storey house. It is a very spacious flat (by UK standards) with a large entrance hall, big (but a little gloomy) kitchen with breakfast table, main bedroom with double bed (two single duvets provided), second bedroom with two single beds, living / dining room with dining table and two-seater sofa, and shower room with toilet. The AirBnB photos do not do the accommodation justice; it is bigger and better than it looks.
The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, hob, oven, fridge and loads of storage in the cupboards. All of the utensils, plates, bowls, pots ands pans we needed were available (although there were just enough rather than ample). The bedrooms are large with ample storage; external rolling shutters are installed making it possible to shut out all light for a great night’s sleep. The bathroom is good with a lovely shower (fixed and portable heads), although it does tend to get very wet with the shower leaking through the door seal and the sink splashing everywhere with each use (but that could have just been us not getting used to the height of the tap from the bowl). The sitting / dining room is a little odd as it provides another table (there is already one in the kitchen) with room for 4+, but only a 2 seater sofa. Although there is a single armchair in the corridor, it felt that there was not enough seating for relaxing.
The private terrace and garden is to the front of the apartment facing on to the street and partly overlooked by the other floors of Nicole’s house above. However, it is quite secluded by shrubs and we only ever saw about three cars go past in the few days we were there, plus Nicole and her family are very discrete.
On street parking was available for the whole time we stayed and as it felt like a very safe neighbourhood we had no worries about leaving the car there.
The neighbourhood is lovely, quiet and calm. There is a mini-market at the end of the road (although we did not try it). Ettlingen (10 minute drive) has supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, etc. We found the people of the area to be extremely friendly and helpful (despite our complete lack of German).
The apartment would benefit from a welcome sheet with some basic information regarding the accommodation facilities and the local area.
Others have reported that they were surprised by the additional charge for access to the entire apartment; we found that contacting Nicole in advance and stating that we wanted the whole apartment worked well as she then sent us an all-inclusive AirBnB quote that we simply accepted and paid for everything up front.
In summary, a very comfortable and spacious place to stay in a peaceful neighbourhood run by a good host.
The previous reviews did not do this lovely apartment justice! The apartment was spacious, clean and was perfect for our weekend in Karlsruhe. Nicole and her family were very helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this apartment and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Der Aufenthalt bei Nicole und ihrer Familie war sehr schön, besonders unsere 4 Kleinkinder haben die sehr geräumige Wohnung, den Garten, das nahe Schwimmbad und Wald mit Wildschweingehege genossen. Toll, dass wir samt unserer lauten turbulenten Kinderschar so willkommen waren. Die Wohnung war super sauber, hatte ein sehr gutes Inventar und war auch gemütlich für uns. In die City kommt man gut mit dem Bus, insgesamt ein runder toller Aufenthalt für uns alle... Es war auch total lieb, dass uns der Plastikeinsatz von unserem Flaschenwärmer hinterhergeschickt wurde, den wir in der Aufbruchsstimmung vergessen hatten. Danke!
Es war einfach alles super! Gerne wieder - DANKE!
Nicole was a great host. She replied to messages quickly and was friendly. The apartment was really lovely - very clean and new. The facilities and furnishings were great, it was a wonderful place to stay.
The pricing of the apartment is confusing - because of the airbnb payment set up if you want to use kitchen and living room you will have to pay extra on arrival.
Little village was very nice, we walked to a restaurant recommended by Nicole for dinner on our first night and it was excellent.
FYI we had our own car so it was easy to explore the black forest area and the apartment is underneath their house.
Also, if you go into Karlsruhe (about 20 mins drive) you should eat at one of the Vogel bars- excellent service, food and beer.
Meine Eltern haben ein Wochenende während einer Familienfeier in der sehr schönen Wohnung übernachtet und haben sich dort sehr wohlgefühlt.
Die Wohnung ist perfekt sauber und sehr schön ausgestattet gewesen, auch eine kleine Terasse gehört dazu. Sehr gut fanden wir, dass man die Küche, ein zweites Schlafzimmer und das Wohnzimmer flexibel mit dazubuchen kann.
Der Kontakt mit Nicole war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert.
Nice place, no issues. A little surprised the family room cost extra when we got in, however we used the place only to sleep. Great recommendation and very nice hosts.
Charming, very clean, well furnished apartment; perfect for a small family. The hosts are attentive and kind. Best if you have a car, but it's not a problem if you do not, as the bus is a short walk away and is only a 15-minute ride into Karlsruhe. A bakery, butcher, and bio-laden (small organic produce & products store) are close by. A small playground is on the next street. You are also a short walk into some lovely countryside, and a wooded area with great trails (just head toward the giant antenna!). I would absolutely recommend this apartment for a small family looking to have a relaxing stay removed from the city.
One small piece of advice: If you require any sort of internet connectivity, you will need to bring an internet stick and sit outside with your laptop; that goes equally for cell phones/handys. The walls are well insulated, so reception inside is very poor.
Sehr schönes und geräumiges Apartment. Alles ist sauber und frisch renoviert, so dass man sich direkt wohl fühlen kann. Die große Küche lädt zum gemeinsamen Kochen und Verweilen ein. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig und verfügt über eine exzellente Verkehrsanbindung (Karlsruhe, Durlach, Ettlingen, Waldbronn). Die Autobahnen A5 & A8 sind auch sehr schnell zu erreichen.
Nicole und ihr Mann sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Habe die Zeit sehr genossen. und kann es vorbehaltlos empfehlen.
