We stayed in the apartment for 6 months at the beginning of 2017 (2 parents, and a 15 & 11 year old) We can't say enough good things about the apartment and about Penny & Hendrik. This is a wonderful apartment and Penny & Hendrik are warm and personable hosts. We very much recommend this apartment. The pictures on the website don't do the apartment justice.

In the fall of 2016, we spent several months in this wonderful apartment because of a visiting scholarship in one of the Berlin Max Planck research institutes. The flat is spacious, clean, has high ceilings and lovely Gründerzeit details. It is remarkably quiet thanks to its double windows, has fast internet access, is cool when the weather is warm and has an excellent heating system for when it is getting colder. It has a balcony and is located in a green, tranquil, safe and interesting neighbourhood, with several nice restaurants, cafes and bookshops within walking range. The Schloßstraße, a shopping area with three malls is nearby, and so are the hubs for the underground, S-Bahn and busses that can bring you to the city centre. The apartment has a large kitchen that is equipped with everything you need for a longer stay. With a large table in the kitchen and a charming writing desk with book case in the living room, we could easily create two working spaces. The two sleeping rooms, bathroom and two toilets were very convenient as well. In our view, this apartment offers value for money, and on top of that you will meet two very kind landlords.

I had the pleasure of staying with my family at Penny and Hendrik's apartment on Forststraße while I was a Gastwissenschaftler at the Freie Universität in the summer of 2016. We had a delightful time, and I can recommend it and them with great enthusiasm.

The apartment is in a lovely old Altbau building on a quiet street with large shady trees. The other apartments are mostly occupied by friendly young families with small children, but the apartment itself is very quiet, and a great place to work. The rooms are large and full of light, and all have twelve-foot tall ceilings and original fixtures, although the apartment has been renovated very recently, and the appliances are all new. The Freie Universität is only fifteen minutes or so away by bike or bus, a bustling shopping district is two blocks away, and the Ubahn there takes you into the center of Berlin in about fifteen or twenty minutes. Penny and Hendrik could not have been nicer or more helpful. We certainly hope to stay here next time we are in Berlin.

Wonderful apartment in wonderful neighborhood: highly recommend. The apartment is in a nice building and is newly renovated, pleasantly and comfortable furnished (and with enough kitchenware to have a large dinner party). I loved morning coffee on the balcony. Loved the neighborhood (Steglitz): convenient access to other parts of the city, and loaded with cafes, restaurants, shops. Everything you could want, including a mall and a very nice grocery store, is within easy walking distance. it was a 15-minute walk to the MPIfB and just a bit longer to FU -- both were very pleasant walks. Wonderful, welcoming, helpful landlords. A fabulous place in all respects. Excellent Barbara Keys 7/2/2016 3:48:00 AM
We have spent one month in the flat with my family (wife and 3 children). It was very comfortable, and its location is also very good. Penny and Hendrik were very kind and helpful. I warmly recommend this flat. Excellent Csanad Imreh 5/2/2016 2:15:00 AM
