Outstanding hospitality, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We arrived for a one month stay here as we transitioned during a permanent move to Germany. We are convinced that what could have been a daunting and overwhelming period in our lives was made much easier by the owners of this rental home. We were in a high-end, beautiful, contemporary, full service hotel for 2 days, but having multiple bedrooms, a living room (w/ fireplace!), a full kitchen, two full baths and a laundry room (washing machine) at this home was far better. The house is located in a quiet area very close to an elementary school and public park so our kids quickly found places to play. Additionally, there are vast fields with walking paths that lead to neighboring villages that we walked or ran along almost daily with our dog. You can walk to a grocery store, bakery, and train station within 5-8 minutes (less than a mile). While we were there the grocery store was temporarily closed for renovations but the owners kindly offered to take us to the store-which was incredibly helpful since I couldn't read some ingredient lists or tell what some items were. The owners came over regularly to help translate items that came in the mail, etc as well and occasionally would even drop by with something she had cooked (always delicious). Although the furnishings in the home are somewhat disjointed and a can feel perhaps a bit overcrowded, having a fully stocked kitchen and place to relax, hang clothes, etc made it easy to settle in. The house was very clean. The only minor issue that we had was a little bit of trouble accessing the internet at times, as it is really only available in one room via wifi and sometimes the signal would not be strong enough, but usually a call or quick visit to the owners next door who would reset it, would get it back up and running. We have recommended the property to others and would do so again. If we had the need to stay in Cologne again, we would very likely stay here.

Nice time had by all

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week in Cologne and I enjoyed staying here. The owners were very friendly and generous (especially with our last minute need to stay an extra night). We made use of the kitchen and the backyard. The walk to the train is quick and in a quite neighborhood.

If I make it to Cologne again, I will definitely stay here again.
