Guest apartment with co-used kitchen in an old gardener's house in a private garden
I live in my grandparents' old house in a rural place between Hamburg and the medieval harbour town of Lübeck.
The house is almost 100 years old, with wooden floors, ovens (and a central heating) in every room and lies at the edge of a private historical garden.
We have 5 rooms, 3 up- and 2 downstairs. I live downstairs and have my office upstairs, the other two cozy rooms under the roof, 15 and 20m² are our guest rooms. Downstairs there is a common living room, common kitchen and a second toilet. The upstairs bathroom is only for guests.
All rooms are equipped with a double bed that can also be separated into two single beds, we also have a third, fourth and a baby bed available if needed.
Hoisdorf is a rural place with farm yards and some daily commuters' houses. At the lower end of our garden you have a view over the medieval canons' fishing pond (nature reserve, many wildfowl, please behave respectfully). There are forests of all sizes around, more ponds and lakes. My mother keeps a big vegetable garden, sheep and fowl. There are hiking and cycling paths around and it's still not too far away from life. By car it's just half an hour to Hamburg or to Lübeck, some smaller old towns like Mölln or Ratzeburg and the baltic sea coast are also easy to reach by car.
The next village of Großhansdorf (2 km) has a subway stop, there is buses going there every hour, the next small town (Ahrensburg, 5 km) has a train station. It still normally takes about an hour to get to Hamburg by public transport.
If I have time, I very much enjoy having people around, love to cook for guests or just hang out for a tea, a few beers or a wine, but I can also leave you in peace, the house and garden are big enough for that.
Toegang voor gasten
The guest rooms and guest bathroom are guests only, kitchen, living room and downstairs toilet shared. The garden is also free to use for guests.
Please park your car only in front of the garages at the barn. Bicycles may be sheltered inside the sheepshed.
Interactie met gasten
If I am at home, I am around and don't mind spending time with guests, but I don't have to. A few months each year I spend abroad, if I therefore should not be at home, my parents live next door and take care of guests.
Ich bin Sinologe und freiberuflicher Handelsagent für Tee und andere Lebensmittel.
Ich spreche fließend Englisch und Chinesisch, habe in China mehrere Jahre verbracht und ansonsten einen Großteil Europas, Teile Amerikas und ein paar Ecken Australiens gesehen.
Wenn ich gerade mal nicht am Reisen bin, liebe ich es, an alten Autos zu schrauben, sehr viel Musik zu hören, vegetarisch zu essen und kochen, Filme zu sehen und feiern zu gehen (wofür Hamburg übrigens bestens geeignet ist).
