Friendly academic couple seeking 2-3 room apartment in Kreuzberg

Hello, we are looking for a furnished apartment in Kreuzberg, for at least 12 months, starting May 2021 or later (dates flexible).

We have lived in Berlin for several years, and due to changed circumstances are now looking for a place to move in together. We require 2 rooms minimum, separate work space a plus. An apartment with a bathtub and/or balcony would be ideal.

We are two female academics (one Australian, one American), in our 30s, with lots of experience subletting and house sitting (references available). No kids, no smoking, no parties. We have no pets, but would be happy to live with a cat or dog. Also happy to look after your plants, forward your mail, etc.

Amelia found us through Sabbatical Homes in 2014, and moved in to our fully furnished home in Amsterdam, for what was initially a short-term sublet. We subsequently extended the lease, and she and her partner Nicholas rented the house for the next three and a half years, during which time we have had not the least cause to complain, nor have they made any unreasonable demands. Indeed, they have been ideal tenants: thoroughly reliable and responsible. They have treated the house and its contents - as well as the small attached garden - as though it were their own, and are now leaving it in perfect condition. There has never been the least complaint from neighbours; quite the contrary. They complied with the rental contract 100% and have given us ample notice of leaving, for Amelia to take up a position in Berlin. We would gladly rent to them again; I recommend them most highly as tenants. Excellent Atty Tordoir 8/2/2018 4:02:00 AM
