    Description

    Having a big, friendly, open house with separate guest room and own bath. The kids are grown up by now but check in from time to time.
    It is a quiet living area but only 10min on the bicycle from Friedrichshain/Kreuzberg humming life away.
    So, you can pile out in your free time and explore the greats of Berlin.
    I do have a schedule on working days you'll have to align to, please.
    Most time I work from my house where I have some extra office space in the basement next to the guest room.

    One important thing - I do not like lazy people who try to take advantage of others. So, if you are one of these - just do not write to me and waste my time reading your message...

    If you can teach me some spanish and Salsa - great !

    There is a bus stop in front of the house and just 10mins walking distance to Berlin-Karlshorst S-Bahn station.
    If you like running - there are woods close by for practice.
    A lake to go for a swim is approx. 10mins on the bicycle away.
