“We had a fabulous stay at Katharina & Sebastian’s home in Baierbach. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The house is spacious and spotlessly clean. A lovely garden and outside seating and cooking area. Katharina was great to communicate with, both before and during our trip. The area is lovely with Lake Simssee a short walk away, views of the mountains, rural and quiet yet bars and restaurants within a 20-minute walk. We really enjoyed Spezerei with a homemade dish of the day and the Simsseer Biergarten, a very local brewery with a beer garden during summer, right next to the lake, The supermarkets were just a very short drive away. We hired a car and found the roads quiet and easy to get around but we also used public transport which was very reliable. There is a bus stop steps from the house although the trip needs planning as it’s not a frequent service. We particularly enjoyed a sunset and moon rise at Lake Simssee and the woodland walks. A cable car trip up Mount Kampenwand, a boat trip on Lake Chiemsee and a visit to Herrenchiemsee and the palace and a visit to Salzburg by train. I highly recommend an exchange with Katharina and her family, both as a host and a guest. ”
“We stayed at this house for 7 nights and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and very clean and has everything you might need. Our 5-year old son loved playing with all the toys and in the yard. The location is also fantastic, just a short walk to the lake! Moreover, the hosts were super welcoming (did not meet in person) and really shared everything (bikes, kayaks, lots of tips for trips). Highly recommend this place!!”
“This was our second time at Katharina's lovely family house. It is so uncomplicated, comfortable and child- friendly that we were very happy to return. Our son enjoyed the toys, running around playing football in the garden and watching telly from the cushy soda. We again loved kayaking and found it great that they are so easily accessible at the lake. The weather wasn't great but we still enjoyed ourselves thoroughly but warming ourselves on the decked terrace by the fire and playing board games by candle light by the big table inside. We can warmly recommend Katharina's home to all others swappers.”
“We had a fantastic few days at Katharina’s home. It is spacious and well supplied with everything you might need for a family holiday: a modern kitchen, big tables indoor and outside for family meals and playing board games and a lovely garden for the kids to run around. All in a picturesque but not touristy village at a short walk from a lake. Katharina and her family were kind enough to let us use their kayaks which was a highlight for us. Communication with the hosts was perfect from start to finish. ”
“Very comfortable house in a beautiful little Historical Bavarian village . Great location- we went to the Alps form there within 30 minutes. . Great lake ( Simsee) with a good swim only 1 km away from this home. There is a great garden, fit for younger kids. We loved this beautiful place and Katharina is the best host ever. ”
“Katharina and Sebastian have created a very special, happy home in a stunning part of the world and we feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to experience it for a week. The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped with lovely, large rooms. Katharina (with her embarrassingly, perfect English!) could not have been more helpful and welcoming before, during and after the stay even organising for bikes to be available for our whole family. We loved lake living and cycling down to Simssee for swims and SUPing. I don't know what's in that lake water but it makes you fee alive and amazing! We had some lovely lunches out at restaurants recommended by Katharina and in the evenings, we hung out on their brilliant terrace whilst the children played in the garden - everybody happy! There are loads of places to visit in the area, a week wasn't really long enough. We especially loved going up mountains in cable cars. We returned home feeling rested and relaxed to a house which Katharina and Sebastian had taken fantastic care of. All in all, a perfect swap!”
“The house is very comfortable, with a lovely terrace and garden, a fireplace and lounge chairs. The house is perfect for families. The kitchen is very well equipped. We could not have been happier with our stay. The location is interesting and there is a plenty of things to do (Chiemsee, Rosenheim, Salzburg, ..). The house is just a few minutes walk from the Simssee, where we went swimming. Katharina is a well organised host. She was always responsive before and during our stay. We met her sister during our stay and they couldn’t have been more kind and thoughtful. Katharina has prepared many information for activities and places to eat locally. We really enjoyed staying in Katharina’s home. Thank you!”
“We had wonderful stay in Katharina's beautiful home. The house has all the space and facilities you could need especially for a young family. The enclosed and safe garden was a great bonus and our children were kept entertained with all the toys swings and slides. A gorgeous sheltered terrace overlooks the garden and we were able to sit out watching the children play and late at night once they were in bed. Inside there is a lovely spacious open plan kitchen sitting room and large bedrooms. Baierbach is a beautiful part of the world and we loved the mountain views and the fabulous Simsee ( which is only a few minutes from the house) where we spent a lot of time. Everything was in easy reach of the house ( bakery, restaurants, shops), and the city of Rosenheim, where we enjoyed strolling around the pedestrianised streets is less than 15mins drive away. It was also very easy to get train to Munich from Rosenheim. If we had more time we would have explored further. Katharina left many useful instructions in respect of the house and information of all the local area offered. She was also available to answer any questions we might have had. We would love to return to this part of Germany to explore further and would recommend both this area and Katharina's home to all ages. We all enjoyed a wonderful holiday there. ”
“We had the most wonderful days in this lovely house and neighbourhood. We didn't even realize how good the location of the house is untill we get there. There are so many places to visit and explore in the neighbourhood. Swimming, hiking, biking etc. Katharina was more than helpful for us. Big Thank You!”
“We had the most wonderful stay at Katharina and Sebastian's home. Their home is so comfortable and perfect for a family with everything we needed for our stay. The location is quiet as it's set in a little village where we bought eggs and milk for the local farmer. We loved this! There were bikes at our disposal so we enjoyed riding as family to and around the Simssee which is only 5 minutes away and so stunning. If you want to adventure further, Munich and Salzberg are an easy day trip. The local city of Rosenheim is only a 5 minute drive and has everything you need as well as a gorgeous old part in the middle of the town. To make our trip even better Katharina is fantastic to communicate with along the way...and so was her father who lives around the corner! Thanks for a great experience. Hope to be back one day!”
“Katharina and Sebastian were wonderful hosts that took care in providing us with everything we could need. Their home is located in an incredible country area, with lots of natural attractions and within less than an hour from spectacular destinations such as Munich or Salzburg. We had much more fun than we anticipated, and would definitively recommend. ”
“Katharina and her family stayed at our house in August 22. Katharina was great at communicating, was flexible about the arrangements and made efforts to make everything easy for us. We left our house in total confidence that they would look after it and indeed they did. They looked after our plants (in the heat wave!) and our chickens, and left the house completely spotless for our return. We would most certainly be very happy to host the family again and hope they come back to explore more of Cornwall!”
“Excellent communication throughout. A lovely family who I would be very happy to host in the future. A perfect exchange. My full review is as a guest in Katharina's home.”
“Lovely family a pleasure to host them”
“Katherina and her family were lovely guests. They treated everything with respect. We‘d always love to welcome them again.”
“Katherina and her family are very nice and pleasing guests. Communication with her was easy going. The house rules were fully respected. We look forward to welcoming them again. All the best”
“Good guests. There was no problem at all.”
