About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

I LOVE my flat in Berlin, and so will you !!!

This is a comfortable and chic Charlottenburg home that invites respect and consideration by its guests.

Located on a quiet tree-lined street just steps from the famous 'Kurfuerstendamm' ( nickname: 'Ku-Damm' ) in a typical Berliner 'Altbau' ( older building ), you will find the charm of the 1920's.

Wide plank flooring, woodwork, moldings, stucco detailing, high ceilings, double french doors and windows are just some of its charm.

The eat-in kitchen features a gas-stove, convection oven, refrigerator/freezer, a washing machine, and comes fully equipped with chef's cooking utensils.

The tiled bathroom provides a tub-shower combination.

In the large bedroom, you will sleep comfortably in a large bed, and there is a wardrobe to store away your items.

The living-room has about 260 sf ( 24 square meters ), an additional day-bed, and you will enjoy the sweet balcony on warm days.

There are gas-radiators in each room.

The flat is 62 square meters and will easily sleep 2 to 4.

W-Lan ( Wi-FI ) and TV with DVD collection, included in the rate.

'Away from Home', you will feel very much AT HOME in this sophisticated Charlottenburg flat.

You will be provided w/ detailed information as to where to ring upon your arrival, w/ the information of a local contact, and a map of the building.

As this is a PRIVATE rental, the on-site manager will be unable to assist you - but your local contact will.

Very close to 'Adenauer Platz' ( Underground, U7 ), the S-Bahn station of 'Charlottenburg', as well as several Bus-Lines going up and down the 'Ku-Damm'.

Everywhere, there are parks, markets, cafes, restaurants, grocery stores and shops of all kind. Children's play grounds can also be found nearby.

Tipp ( my favorite ): 'Stuttgarter Platz' (which the Berliner calls 'Stutti')

I am looking forward to hosting you in Berlin.

About Katherine Kennedy

I live with my family nearby, but refuse to give up my lovely little nest in the city. It reflects the warmth of being a home, rather than a room in a pension. I love the location, central of old West Berlin. There are many local resources (books, maps, brochures) of my favorite things to do available for your use. Feel free to browse through them and share my love for Berlin.

Katherine Kennedy purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Katherine Kennedy chose Halensee

I have traveled to Berlin for over 20 years and have finally moved here permanently. We live in the adjacent neighborhood. I have been visiting this apartment since 1989, and took over the lease from my best friend 6 years ago. We rent to short term vacation or corporate clients. It's not a party flat, it's a quiet building with nice neighbors and respectful surroundings.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to everything!! The Rewe Grocery store is very close and open 7am-10pm Monday through Saturday........a rare convenience in Berlin! Quiet tree-lined street.

Elegant and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Grateful we did not pick any of the other places, as we did NOT have to walk up 5 flights of stairs, and or have to share bunk beds. Berlin is full of quirky places, but Katherine's flat was a lucky choice, elegant and well equipped it seems that Katherine has managed to marry Germany and the US into a creative, attractive blend of stylish design and comfy furniture. It is quiet and has been a heaven during some truly hectic days. Katherine is a very attentive and fun hostess, yet gives you privacy. The surrounding area does offer everything promised from Broetchen on Sundays, to walking distance to excellent restaurants and shops. Best VRBO experience!

This apartment suited us perfectly. It's very comfortable for two people.

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is a great hostess, easily accessible. The apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood and we are now regulars in a few establishments. Public transportation is easy from here so I had no difficulty getting to my course. We have rebooked for six weeks next year and hope to make this an annual trip.

Perfect location to enjoy all of Berlin...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Berlin for three weeks in November when Berlin begins its’ holiday season. Katherine’s apartment is located adjacent to the famed Ku’Damm all lit and decorated for the holidays. It is perfectly situated to enjoy Berlin. We were not only close to the subway but also to the bus lines which stopped almost at our front door and took us anywhere we wanted to go. The apartment itself is very large, warm and comfortable. The bed was king size; the shower was hot; the kitchen was very well stocked, the internet was fast and reliable, and the appliances were all easy to use. There is a supermarket very close by and many retail stores, restaurants and bakeries within walking distance. Katherine and her family were so very nice to us during our stay. We wouldn’t hesitate to return in the future.

Berlin Holiday appartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with lots of room for 2-4 people. Katherine kept us well informed by text message on day of arrival and met us at the local "S" train station that is 7 minutes walk from the apartment. The apartment is easy to find and situated in a great location with lots of eating places and local shops just around the corner. Public transport gets you to the centre of Berlin with 20-30 minutes.

The apartment is situation on first floor in the centre of the block overlooking a square courtyard. It's very quite and all the windows overlook the courtyard. The apartment is well equipped with cooker, washing machine, fridge, TV, ironing board etc. You can have a pleasant evening or day off site seeing and feel that your at home.

If you like space and not a shoe box in a hotel this is the place for you.

Space and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Katherine was incredibly helpful- nothing was too much trouble, and she was always available should we have any questions. The flat was a traditional Berlin altbau, and while somewhat old-fashioned in feel, was lovingly furnished and had everything we needed. The extra bed in the living room make it perfect for a small family. It's location is great, with every kind of eatery you would need in walking distance.
