“One of our best holidays! Thank you so much Anna and Renato for your kindness and your hospitality. The flat is really nice for a family, close to city transportation. We really enjoyed our time in Berlin and we would love to go back!”
Anna & Renato's reviewsAs a host (10)
“When we contacted Renato & Anna they replied very quickly and enthusiastically. In the time before the house exchange it was easy to communicate with them and they were very responsible to all our questions and wishes. During the exchange they were also in contact through sms so everything went very smoothly. Their house in Pankow is in a nice and quiet area not too far from the city center and within easy reach of public transport. The house itself is very comfortable and has a nice atmosphere. There is a very large and very attractive shared garden for all the people that live in the building which our kids loves to play in. Renato and Anna left some useful books about Berlin (with kids) for us and gave us great tips f.e. about swimming lakes. We definitely recommend an exchange!”
“He had a very nice exchange with Renato, Anna and Yuna in February 2017. Their appartement is confortable and child-friendly. We were able to use bikes, which was great, even in February ! They gave us lots of personal tips (great little restaurants, café and bakery...). We felt immediatly at home and enjoy to live in Berlin like local people in a very quiet area, and not very far away from city center.”
“We had a lovely Stay in berlin, we borrowed their bicycles and within ten minutes You are in the coolest Neighborhood. We Also went to the hotspots Downtown such as Alexander platz but realised closer to home was a much better time. I Stayed in contact via Whatsapp with Anna which was really nice. Their appartment had high ceilings, feels very spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend!!”
“The exchange with Renato was our first experience with home swapping and it was great! Ana and Renato helped us a lot with our holiday preparations and provided us with lots of information about Milano, near by bars and restaurants as well as public transportation. We had a great holiday there, thanks a lot.”
“This was our first experience of home swapping and it couldn't have been more positive!! The apartment was great and the city was great. Renato and Anna are both very lovely people who told us lots about where to shop and which bars and restaurants to go to. They looked after our apartment as if it was their own and we even had a little time together before they had to get their flight home. We hope to keep in touch with them and have lunch next time we're in London :) Thank you both once again for an extremely fantastic experience!!”
“This is an excellent opportunity for an exchange in Berlin: we exchanged two times with Anna and Renato, in winter 2016 and 2018. They are a very friendly and helpful family, their appartment is spacious, there are bikes we could use, and as we also have kids, they loved to spend time at the appartment as well. There are good subway and tram connections to other parts of the city, and a tram stop is very closeby. ”
“We had a lovely stay at Anna and Renato's place. The appartment is in a quiet neighbourhood. We got to borrow their bikes, which was really nice. Every day we went cycling into other parts of Berlin. Berlin is a great place to stay and they are very kind hosts. Our house was very clean and tidy when we returned! We would definitely recommend their appartment. Micha, Jochem, Nolda and Erik”
“We had a very comfortable stay in August 2015. The home had all the amenities we need. The neighborhood was quiet and family oriented. Shopping was close by and the commute into downtown Berlin was only 20 minutes by tram and train. Renato and his family were very welcoming and hospitable. They and his family spent about three weeks days in my home and they took very good care of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our exchange experience with them.”
“We had a wonderful time in Renato and Anna\'s apartment on Prenzlauer berg. They were very friendly and communicative, easygoing and their house was a very warm welcome. A great spot to start exploring Berlin and also a very nice and warm place to just stay in and relax. Anna and Renato and their daughter Yuna took such great care of our house and two kittens, we came back to a lovingly and attentive cared for home. We had an exchange we would love to repeat at anytime.”
Where is it?
quiet family area, but vibrant area with many cafes/restaurants within easy reach - supermarket just next door - the flat is officially situated in Pankow, but just on the border of Prenzlauer Berg - well-connected by tram to main Prenzlauer Berg (walking to Eberswalder Strasse, a central place in Prenzlberg takes 20 min), Mitte, Friedrichshain - the lake Weisser See is less than 3km away and also easily reachable by bus/tram (you can swim there in the summer!) and you can cycle everywhere - cultural centre 'Brotfabrik' (cinema, theatre, bar) is just a 5 min walk away
