Overview

About the property

3 bed, 3rd floor apartment in Wilmersdorf/Charlottenburg. Quiet area close to u-Bahn station

Located in the quiet, leafy and residential area of Wilmersdorf / Charlottenburg in the west of the city, a wonderfully light and airy 130 sq.m three bedroom apartment on the third floor of a traditional early twentieth century Berlin apartment building with open plan kitchen / living / dining area. There are three bedrooms; a very generous master bedroom, an additional double and a small single. The apartment retains many of the original features including a parquet floor. Directly opposite is a children's playground and on-street table tennis so the apartment has the added benefit of not being overlooked from the other side of the street. Within walking distance of the Berlin's main shopping street, the Ku'damm and one minute way from Fehrbelinerplatz u-Bahn station giving easy access to the whole city via U3 and U7 lines.

About Charlie Best

Charlie is a photographer and Eliza is a film and TV producer who currently live in London. Eliza works in Berlin frequently which is the reason they decided to buy an apartment in this friendly, vibrant city. Their two eldest children have now left school and also love to visit whenever they can to take advantage of the cultural life by day and the club life by night and having a flat in Berlin makes them very popular with their friends!

Charlie Best purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Charlie Best chose Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf

We bought the apartment in 2007. Having looked at several others all over the city we were immediately attracted by the combination of space and light, and the fact that many of the period features were still intact. We subsequently renovated the whole flat replacing the small kitchen with an open plan one, removing the false ceilings to reveal the full 3.5m ceiling heights throughout and modernising the bathroom. Having stayed with friends in trendier areas like Mitte and Kreuzberg we decided, like many Berliners, that a good nights sleep was preferable to nightlife on the doorstep and so the quieter area of Wilmersdorf with its excellent u-bahn links offered the perfect balance of calm, value and location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Charlie, when we first entered the apartment we knew instantly that we had made a very good choice we will make unqualified recommendations to friends, thank you'



"We are safely home and enjoyed our stay in Berlin and in your apartment enormously, you are to be congratulated on the creation of a lovely place in which we felt warm (in spite of low external temperature) and entirely at home"



"Your place really suits our style, right down to the correct movies, books, cookbooks, and of course your kitchen - complete with knives that are just fine!"



"Yes we had a brilliant time in Berlin and your apartment was perfect. Such a beautiful home and ideally located. It was just a shame we were hardly in it - There was so much to see and do. We acted on a few of your recommendations for meals etc and they were great."

Fantastic apartment and nice location in West Berlin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and fell in love with the apartment and the area too. The restaurant down the road was a great place to wind down at the end of the day - lovely traditional german food, beer and staff. The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed. We loved it all. Simon

The apartment was great and beyond our expectation

  • 5 of 5

The space is bright, modern and comfortable. The location is very convenient esp for getting into the heart of town. Located in a quiet street, it is surrounded by some charming local restaurants which come highly recommended by our host Charlie and they did not disappoint! Staying here made our new years celebration one we will not forget.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant time at this apartment for 5 days in October 2015. The apartment is modern, clean and welcoming. Very close to U-bahn & local supermarket making it very easy to get around. Very safe close/neighbourhood & friendly neighbours. Everything you could possibly need within the apartment including MP3 dock, hairdryers, TV, books, DVDs, washing machine etc. Charlie couldn't have been more helpful from helping us to find our way from the airport to recommending us local eateries. Our only regret is that we couldn't make more of the balcony due to the colder weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a very reasonable price and if I ever return to Berlin, this gorgeous flat will be my first choice.

Spacious flat lovely area

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious flat in a charming area. We travelling with three teenage children in the summer while it was hot. We used many of the recommendations left by Charlie including some excellent restaurants just down the road. The U bahn is very close as are supermarkets. You can visit the historic center easily. We also travelled to an outside pool and the lakes to swim. One minor thing to note is the flat is on the fourth floor. In short great location, great, access to other areas and a beautiful flat. Thank you Charlie

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely apartment - very spacious, and immaculate. We had great fun playing table tennis on the fixed table outside on the street, and also went to the jazz club down the read recommended by the owners. Communication was always good, and the addition of a 3 page sheet detailing info about the apartment, directions etc. + the owner's personal recommendations was really useful. All in all, had a great week in Berlin. Would definitely come back!

Wunderbare Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist absolut perfekt. Herrliche Altbauwohnung in ruhiger Seitenstrasse und doch zentral an der U-Bahn gelegen. Sie ist komplett ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Um die Ecke ist der Supermarkt der bis 22.oo Uhr geöffnet hat. Ebenfalls gibt es gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe und alles was man braucht ist zu Fuss zu erreichen.

Der Vermieter ist supernett und steht jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.

Wir haben hier 10 herrliche Tage verbracht und können die Wohnung uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

Viel Spass hat es uns gemacht, Berlin mit dem Fahrrad zu erkunden.

Herzlichen Dank an Charlie :-)

Location

Coast/Beach:

The apartment is situated in the west of the city where there are lakes and beaches. From the U-bahn stop at the end of the road you can take the underground train for 9 stops to a lovely wood and swimming lake.

Travel:

Tegel airport is a 15 minute taxi ride, or 25 mins on public transport. Schonenfeld airport is 40 minutes by either express bus or train.

Distances:

Our local U-bahn station (Fehrbelliner Platz) has two lines and is only a 1 minute walk from the apartment. From there you can access the very good city transport system.
