About our home

*** we have been exchanging our guest apartment ,in the same Villa, since 2019. We have loved the home exchanging experience and making new friends! So we have now decided to also swap this apartment, our private home. More photos to follow very soon! ***

Family apartment, set in matured garden, in our traditional Bavarian house. Walking distance to lake Starnberg, hiking trails, restaurants, shops, train station. Starnberg is 20km south of central Munich, with direct train line. 45 minutes drive to the Alps, with many skiing & hiking oppertunities.

We live in a quieter part of Starnberg, on the edge of a nature reserve. Yet only a 10 minute walk to shops, biergartens, restaurants, cinema, swimming pool, lakeside sauna, train station and lake.

Lake Starnberg, one of many lakes in the area, is great for swimming, boat trips or other sporting activities. Visiting the Rose Island is a highlight!

Nature reserve (Maisinger Schlucht) is on the doorstep. With shorter or longer walks to biergartens,traditional Bavarian villages & Andech.

There are actually many fantastic walks around here, as our house lies directly on King Ludwig's trail & 'Jakob's Weg'. You can also get easily to the mountains, by train or car, for stunning hikes.

In the Winter there are many skiing options a short drive away. Sledging, cross-country skiing and skating are walking distance.

If you fancy shopping or sight seeing then Munich is easy to get to. Direct train to central Munich: express train 18mins, normal train about 30 minutes.

Our home has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed the other with a bunk bed. Option to put a single sofa bed in the bedroom for a 5th guest.
LIving room with large sofa and Media System including amazon fire stick, Wii and hundreds of DVDs. Direct access to a large, sunny balcony with seating for 6, and stairs down to large garden. Balcong has a glass-roof and is shelteted so you can even enjoy it when rains!

Eat-in kitchen, with seating for 6, dishwasher, over, fridge/freezer, coffee maschine, juicer etc.
Bathroom with bath and seperate shower. Seperate toilet.
Shared laundry room.

We are happy to lend lots of toys for inside and out. We know first hand how lovely it is on swaps when our kids play excitedly whilst we relax and enjoy!

We welcome guests to enjoy the well established garden with apple trees, vegetable patches and direct access to a beautiful babbling brook (with lockable gate). Relax in your own seating area, BBQ., or just listen to the sound of the birds! A swing, sanpit & toys are available for kids. We also have 2 very friendly rabbits, which you can have as little or as much contact with as you like!

This apartment is on the upper ground floor of our traditional Bavarian home. Built in 1920 we have spent the last 6 years completely renovating. We converted the large 3-storey house into 3 separate flats. This apartment is our home, on the middle floor, we also use the bottom flat for friends, swaps or rent it on Airbnb. We love living here, close to nature & Munich, and are happy to share our space with others.

Having a car isn't a must here but if you have one there are plenty of free parking options on the street. We may be able to lend you ours.

We love having friends, family & guests to stay. We enjoy meeting & welcoming people from around the world to our home. We are always excited to get a home swap request, so please write and see!

Please note: we have the apartment professionally cleaned before a stay. If you would rather not clean after your stay we can arrange a cleaner at the cost of €50.
