About the Homestay
Welcome to our home. We offer up to 3 beautiful spacious and modern furnished private rooms (2 x 18 and 14 sqm) in a very quiet, green, sought after area nearly 200 meters from the Lake Tegel and the forest with only 6 minutes-walk to the nearest bus station and 3 minutes drive to the subway (Line U6). From there you can reach the city center or the Tegel Airport in only 20 minutes (Tegel Airport can be reached in 10 minutes by car). The Central Omnibus Station (ZOB), Kurfürstendamm and Alexanderplatz can be reached in nearly 30 minutes. Our house and its location are also suitable for trade fair visitors.
The house has 2 bathrooms, one of which will be at your and eventually other guest's disposal. All the bedrooms will be occupied.
All rooms are heated through underfloor heating and the house has a beautiful garden with terrace oriented toward the south with a swing, a lie couch and chairs, a Basketball ring, a big trampoline, a gas BBQ and a fireball all for enjoying time in the sun or for family or group activities. The garden can be used on demand.
We live on premises and are available to answer questions but we let our guests do their own thing and enjoy their stay.

How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
