Beautiful, furnished 3 room apartment with patio in Essen-Holsterhausen

While spending parts of my parental leave abroad, I sublet my lovely fully furnished apartment in Essen-Holsterhausen for the period September to March (moving dates might be negotiable).

The apartment:
The apartment has two rooms (16m² and 15m²) that are furnished as bedroom and working/living room respectively. Furthermore, there is a bigger living/dining room (18m²) to which is attached a large (10m²), sheltered patio.
Kitchen and bathroom are rather small but you’ll find everything you need. The kitchen is also expanded into the dining room by a work/breakfast-counter. To store stuff, there is a large built-in cabinet in the entrance area and a also a basement storage room (also to put your bike).
The apartment is fully furnished and equipped, including towels, linen, cleaning agents, tableware,… If wanted I am also happy to leave some board and card games and books (in German and English language). One wall in the living room is decorated with pictures so that I suggest to bring own pictures to put in the (then empty) frames. Electricity and Internet (WiFi) and the German television and radio license fee are included in the extras.
Also, I can leave a changing table, high chair and other baby furniture upon request.
Washer and dryer can be found in the basement for communal use for a fee of 1€. Since there are only seven apartments in the building, there have never been organisational issues.

The apartment is located rather quietly in a side street in Essen-Holsterhausen.
The university and also the city centre can be reached within 15 minutes by bike, the university hospital is just around the corner within 10 minutes walking distance.
Also in walking distance (5-15 minutes) there are grocery shops such as LIDL, ALDI, EDEKA, and PENNY. Within circa 5 minutes walking you can reach the Essen rail trail that runs through Essen and that is perfect for bike trips and for running. Beneath others, it passes by the Grugapark (http://www.grugapark.de/aktuell.html, pictures can be found on https://www.instagram.com/Grugapark/) and also leads to Rüttenscheid (30 minutes walking) where you find many cafés, restaurants, and bars.
The autobahns A40 and A52 are pretty close and good to reach (of course, as everywhere in the area, depending on the time of the day).
The tram stop of the trams U17 is 5 minutes, the one of the U18 10 minutes away (walking).

The landlady told me to limit the number of tenants to two. The apartment is perfect for a couple (though it is also very nice for one person only that needs some space to work).
The total rent is slightly dependent on the number of tenants that move in:
For one person the rent is 730€. The components are: 505€ cold rent, 225€ extras (includes bin taxes, heating, water, cleaning of the staircase, winter road maintenance,…; also electricity, internet and the tv and radio fee).
For two persons, the extras increase by 35€.
