The garden apartment is located in a carefully renovated old building (original 1910), about 4 km from the Cologne Cathedral in the heart of the old district of Cologne-Bayenthal in a quiet street. With it's about 100 square meters it is spacious and looks upon a small, romantically landscaped garden surrounded by an ancient brick wall. The quiet seating area invites to linger. The noble interior takes into account the history of the house.

The space
Before 1996 the ground floor was accupied by an historical Cologne restaurant followed by some different intermediate utilizations until 2006, when the owners established and ran a large psychotherapeutic practice (until 2015). After retiring from employment, the rooms were rebuilt into an apartment. The apartment is equipped with all the little things you need for daily life. One bedroom is equipped with a double bed (160 cm), there is one single bedroom and a large sofa bed (180x210 cm) in the living room; optional we offer 1 or 2 folding beds (75 cm). Very spacious and luxurious bathroom with extra toilet.

Guest access
The apartment is lockable. No other person than the guests has access to the apartment.
Of course the beds will be made up with fresh sheets; towels are available in sufficient quantity.

Other things to note
The apartment has in all rooms including the entrance area high quality teak and maple parquet fooring. The equipment consists partly of restored furniture of inherited family stock, partly of furniture and objects, which we have acquired on our trips to Indonesia. The worktops in the kitchen are made of massive oiled teak plates; the kitchen appliances brand new products. The TV screen (satellite connection) in the living room is a new 'curved' 55-inch UHD screen from Samsung 9000 series. The leather furniture comes mainly from high quality manufacturers (DeSede, Rolf Benz). This mixture of styles, ages and materials creates a unique and very personal atmosphere that we hope - and wish - our guests will also feel and take tender care of the extraordinary equipment.

Round the corner you will find all shops for daily needs; within 400 m are three large supermarkets (REWE City, Penny and Alnatura). Within 300 m you will find 3 Italian restaurants, as well as several other restaurants and cafes. Noteworthy are the many owner-managed small shops in this area.

In den beiden Wohnungen in Köln, Deutschland und in der Villa in Bali, Indonesien, die wir - meine Frau Sabine und ich - über Airbnb anbieten, haben wir selbst lange Zeit gewohnt. Wir nutzen sie natürlich auch zukünftig selbst, wenn wir uns am Ort aufhalten oder stellen Sie unseren Freunden und Familienmitgliedern zur Verfügung. Deshalb sind sie auch nicht immer buchbar. Sie sind in dem Stil eingerichtet, der zu uns und unseren Häusern passt. Wir haben früh genug die Entscheidung getroffen, unsere erfolgreiche Berufstätigkeit zu beenden und kommen jetzt dazu, das zu tun, was wir uns immer schon vorgenommen hatten: Reisen - oder zu Hause ohne Hast die Zeit nach unseren persönlichen Vorstellungen, Neigungen und Plänen zu nutzen. Immer öfter gelingt es uns, uns auch auf Reisen 'zu Hause' zu fühlen. Das wünschen wir auch den Menschen, die eine Zeit lang in unseren Wohnungen als Gäste verbringen. Wir sind froh, dass wir mit Melanie eine Co-Gastgeberin gefunden haben, die sich in unserer Abwesenheit liebevoll um unsere Gäste kümmert und dafür sorgt, dass sich unsere Gäste bei ihrem Aufenthalt in Köln 'zu Hause' fühlen. Unser genereller Grundsatz: Wir bieten unseren Gästen nur das an, was wir selbst als Gast auch angeboten bekommen möchten. Unser Maßstab des Erfolgs sind Gäste, die wieder zu uns kommen und die uns Ihren Freunden empfehlen. In the two apartments in Cologne, Germany and in the villa in Bali, Indonesia, which we - my wife Sabine and I - offer through Airbnb, we have lived for a long time ourselves. In the future, of course, we will use it ourselves when we are at the location or make it available to our friends and family members. That's why they are not always bookable. They are decorated in the style that suits us and our homes. We made the decision early enough to finish our successful career and now come to do what we always wanted to do: traveling - or spending time at home with no hurry for our personal ideas, inclinations and plans. We are increasingly able to feel 'at home' when traveling. We also wish that to the people who spend a while in our apartments as guests. We are glad that we have found Melanie as a co-hostess, who cares lovingly for our guests in our absence and ensures that our guests feel at home during their stay in Cologne. Our general principle: We offer our guests only what we ourselves would like to be offered as a guest. Our benchmark of success are guests who come back to us and recommend us to their friends.
