Enjoy a modern space with full kitchen and stunning views of the Neckar valley from a private balcony. Our cozy apartment is nestled on a hilltop in a forested, quiet neighborhood a few kilometers from the lovely Heidelberg Castle and Altstadt.

The space

Our modern Heidelberg retreat is a newly built apartment with full kitchen and modern amenities. The apartment is located on a hill just outside of the city. Like Heidelberg itself, the apartment is a blend of new and old. Its modern design is complemented by aged wood to create a cozy and natural environment.

This is a relaxing, quiet place removed from the bustle of the city.

Gardens and forest surround the apartment with a view that overlooks the river valley below. Take an easy trip by bus or train to the city (15 min) or walk into the forest on trails located immediately behind the cabin. Several bus lines into the city as well as the S-Bahn are only 400m away (5 minute walk).

The apartment itself has two rooms and a beautiful bathroom. The main room is an open space where you can cook, dine and relax. A few steps lead up from this room to the bedroom and private balcony overlooking the valley.

The bedroom has a double bed, as well as an additional single bed. A couch in the living room can be converted into a bed as well (3 beds total; 2X double beds, 1X single bed).

The kitchen is equipped with basic cooking supplies, most importantly a French press and kettle for morning coffee or tea (provided).

Our apartment is perfect for two guests or couples traveling with small children.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the apartment and it's balcony. Off street parking for one vehicle is provided above the apartment in a dedicated parking lot.

Interaction with guests

Our guest will be greeted on arrival but thereafter given privacy to enjoy their retreat. We live in the unit below, so we are available to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. We can help you coordinate transportation from/to the airport, to the guesthouse, on local city transportation, grocery stores, dining, and shopping.

Other things to note

Be careful: we love Heidelberg and our wonderful hillside retreat - you might not want to leave!

Please note: Our house is located on a hill above the city. This gives us beautiful, unobstructed views of the city below, but you will have to walk ~50m uphill from the train station, including a final flight of steps up to the house.

This place is truly a gem! We were sad to leave as 2 nights there didn't feel like enough. The place is new, has all the amenities we could have ever needed and is beautifully styled, not to mention the views on offer! We felt very relaxed and cosy, staying here. We drove our car to the guest house, which worked perfectly for us. There are approximately 10-20 steps from the car park to the guest house, which my sore-kneed father navigated down without issue! We drove our car into the old town of Heidelberg and parked there during the days, whilst moseying about town. Bus and train stops were close by to the house. Teal and her husband were both lovely, personable hosts and we appreciated the tips they gave us for where we should dine out and places we could visit. Teal has a great eye for styling and clearly takes pride in hosting guests and ensuring their Airbnb experience is one to be remembered. She really has thought of everything, down to the food boxes she has on offer for a small fee, if people feel like dining in. We would certainly recommend this place and return.

We did not want to leave! This is the perfect cozy getaway with stunning views of Heidelberg. We took the bus in to town which was very easy and wish we had more than 2 nights. Absolutely beautiful space!
