Here is Marina's Feedback:

Only for German speakers with GPS
The apartment we rented was large and clean. The people friendly. But, the place was a construction site. Our apartment was on the first floor and there was construction of some sort of wall being built not 30 ft.from our window. Needless to say not a very good view. Parking was very limited as large patches in front of the building were closed during the day for construction. We tried to be gone from the apartment before 8 am each day. Our host was out of town, so he emailed me the number of a gentleman that would help us, this gentleman sent over a very nice lady who spoke no English, and with my limited German, tried to explain the apartment to us. The apartment was a nightmare to find as we didn't have a GPS. Finding our way in and out was an experience. In conclusion, it would have been nice to have been told about all this. I think that was the reason for sending the lady, you can't complain to someone who can't understand you.

What I liked best: Spaciousness

What I liked least: Finding my way in and out and the construction
