About our home

Our home was bulit in a South African style with strong Italian influences in the northern city of Hamburg in 2006.
We have warm, dark wooden floors, open plan living and cooking area and the doors to the garden and terrace fold away completely allowing a seamless life between the huge, lush green south-facing garden and the inside in summer.
In winter fireplace with two openings on two levels allows you to sit at the dinner table while staring into the flames or lounge on furs on the floor in front of the same fire in the lounge.
We have a sports room equipped with yoga mats, a boxing bag and weights for the more active. Hamburg is a flat city and bicycles are available for your mobility.


More about us

Where is it?


Our suburb is quiet and green but just 20-30 minutes from everything the city is famous for: the Alster (Hamburg's city lake), our beautiful city centre, the harbour with it`s harbour bars and beaches and the world-renowned Reeperbahn. There are restaurants in medium walking distance, and a few are really special. One can walk to the next suburb with tons of bars and restaurants along a leafy canal in just 30 minutes.

The biggest city-locked moor/swampland in Europe is also just 15 minutes’ walk away.
Hamburg is as flat as Amsterdam and our bike paths are excellent so going anywhere by bike is a pleasure. We can arrange for you to use our bikes if you are interested in moving by bike.

The next U-bahn (Underground) is 10 minutes bike ride from here - otherwise buses come within 5 minutes waking distance every few minutes.
Hamburg has art, music, culture - everything big city has to offer but also more waterways and bridges than Venice and lush, green, peaceful oases of unperturbed nature. A perfect place to travel with family.
