“It was a treat to be able to stay in Daphne and Oliver's apartment in the Prenzlauer Berg district where one can feel Berlin spirit at its best. Shopping facilities and transport by tram and U/S Bahn are within walking distance which is very helpful in a megapole like Berlin. Daphne gave us a lot of insight and advice about this great city and communication with her was both easy and warm. We and our grandkids enjoyed every moment of the time spent in their place, full of light and so exquisitely decorated. Thanks a lot!”

“We had a wonderful experience staying in Daphne and Oliver's apartment in Berlin. The rooms are large and our kids loved all the toys. The neighborhood is filled with great restaurants, very accessible public transportation, and bike paths (we loved using their bikes to get around town). The grocery stores nearby are nice and easy to use and there is a large shopping center about 10 minutes walk away. Many nice playgrounds are a short bike ride away and families are welcome everywhere in the neighborhood. Be advised that there is no elevator in the building and it is close to 100 steps up to the apartment - for us it was nice to get a bit of extra exercise. Daphne and Oliver provided us with a lot of wonderful information about places to go in Berlin and were in constant communication with us throughout our stay. ”
“We've just enjoyed a wonderful Easter week at this lovely penthouse apartment, which is absolutely perfect for exploring the intoxicating, fascinating and fun city of Berlin. The photographs don't do justice to just how bright and sunny the place is, and the sense of space afforded by the large living area and bedrooms. It is also very tastefully decorated throughout, with beautiful artworks and artefacts from India and the East. One particularly interesting aspect of the place (to me, at least) is its situation in what westerners of a certain age would once have considered the start of 'the East', as the immediate locale is where the insurrection of November 1989 first erupted at the Berlin wall, swiftly leading to the fall of 'die Mauer'. The area - once in the communist East - has now returned to its pre-war, middle-class, middle-European origins of grand avenues and villas (and as such was set aside for housing the Party elite!). At the same time there are characterful bars and cafes that still hint at that exotic past. We loved the area, which is relaxed, yet full of cafes, restaurants, independent shops, bakeries etc. At times it reminded me of New York's Greenwich Village. The S-/U-bahn station is just down the road, as is the M1 tram stop which takes you into the very centre of town - with all the monuments and cultural facilities - in minutes. The airport is also very easily accessible by train. There are also plenty of excellent parks and playgrounds for the kids, both locally and en route into the centre. Daphne and Oliver were extremely friendly, efficient and accommodating hosts/house-swappers and their children were charming and clearly well-behaved. If you've never visited Berlin then you are missing out! And I can't imagine a better base from which to do so.”
“Daphne and her family is the nicest hosts and we had a wonderful stay in Berlin!”
