“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

The apartment is ideal for a couple and well located in the suburbs of Lindau with a bus stop right outside the door making it very easy to get in to Lindau. The bus service is excellent and runs on time.You can buy an 8 day pass for the bus from the Tourist Information office and this is good value. It also saves the need for a supply of 2 euro coins
The apartment is well furnished with modern attractive furniture and is very comfortable . The shower room offered a powerful shower and the kitchen had everything you need for self catering. Although a studio type apartment, there was plenty of room to move about and comfortable seating . An added bonus is the direct access to the garden with table, chairs and a lounger. I spent happy times on the lounger with my book. The use of bicycles is a great extra facility, especially as there were lots of places to cycle to and there were many people on bikes, so the cars are well used to cyclists. Helen the host could provide lots of information and the apartment has lots of tourist information leaflets. Helen was also very good at finding out information re any queries and also on our arrival immediately showed us the location of the nearest supermarket.She is also extremely prompt at replying to any e-mail queries.
The apartment is well located for the lake, a large park and outdoor swimming pools.
This was our first visit to the Bodensee and we loved it. We intend to return and will certainly stay here again. A week was not long enough.

Firstly I wish to thank Ruth Campion for an allround informative Review. She showed that it is possible to have an enjoyable Holiday without the added expense of hiring a car and also that the Bodensee or Lake Constance area has an amazing number of attractions and activities for People of all Ages, big and small.Many thanks

“Peaceful lakeside getaway”
Reviewed 1 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the apartment for a weeks holiday in July. The apartment is well laid out with a small kitchen and shower room and a large room containing the bed and living area. Helen greeted us when we arrived and was able to give us lots of useful advice about the area as well as lending us two bikes which were invaluable for getting around. The apartment is situated about a 40 minute walk from Lindau island where the majority of the tourist attractions and the main train station is situated, there are however places to swim, good restuarants, a supermarket & bakery within 5 minutes walk of the apartment.

There are lots of places to visit in the local area which are easily in reach thanks to the excellent public transport links, trains go up the lake shore towards Friedrichshafen from the station just a 5 min walk from the apartment.

I would recommend cycling on some of the lovely cycle paths that link the local towns and villages passing orchards and gardens on the way, German motorists area also very careful when driving past cyslists which makes for a nice change!

Thank you Heather for your practical and accurate comments regarding the apartment and the surrounding area of Lindau. It shows you just how important the location of a holiday apartment is as well as the apartment itself. Thank you so much.

“A good base for us to cycle the southern end of Lake Constance.”
Reviewed 15 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The Apartment is situated in a quiet residential area a few kilometres out of Lindau. The apartment is modern and well equipped for 2 and there is a supermarket within about 10 minutes walk. There were 2 older bikes available for use and we cycled the lakeside in both directions. We had originally planned to do the classic cycle tour around Lake Constance where your luggage is moved to the next overnight stay each day but with the train and ferry system around the lake we decided to take an apartment for 4 days at Lindau and 5 days at Konstanz. This worked really well and we cycled from Lindau to Arbon in one direction, catching the ferry back to Bad Schachen which was the nearest ferry stop to the Apartment . Make sure you check the ferry timetables before you plan your day. In the other direction we cycled to Immenstaad and return. On this day we spent an interesting time in the Zeppelin Museum at Freidricshafen. Although we cycled every day had either the weather or the cyclists been indifferent the Apartment option provides a lot more flexibility as you are not on a tight schedule and don’t need to move daily. There was no internet access at the Apartment but there is a café on the waterfront in Lindau with free wifi. Check at the Tourist Information Office.

It was very interesting to read this review and it provided a very different type of review compared to the previous one. I am glad that the bikes were useful and of course free of charge which is a great cost saving for my guests. They have been extremely popular this season for the first time.Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write the review and I am glad that you had a memorable stay here in Lindau in my apartment.

“Great apartment - great host - most enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed 30 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We really enjoyed our time in this lovely apartment. Very clean with contemporary furnishings, lovely modern bathroom, small but excellent kitchen with everything you need to make our stay really comfortable. If you have a car there is a dedicated parking bay. Helen was a great host and provided many good suggestions and tips.including lots of maps and guide books on the area Good restaurants on the doorstep (from the very reasonable to the more expensive - all good value). A short very reliable bus ride (bus stops outside the apartment) takes you to the Lindau harbour where there are many more restaurants and lots to see and do, from here you can get the ferry to other parts of Lake Constance.

Thank you Helen for a great time.
