We’ve all been on holidays we wish would never end, dreaming of tearing up the return plane ticket and staying put for another month or two. Usually reality gets in the way – you remember about work on Monday morning and that dreaded presentation, or the grim truth that your children can’t stay with their grandparents forever. Damn you, responsibilities! For some lucky few though – those who can work remotely and don’t have to worry about the school run – extended stay rentals are a great way to combine the experiences of a new place with the practicalities of earning a crust.
Nomads Apt offers just such an option in Berlin. This super-swanky Prenzlauer Berg pad is rented on a medium-term basis somewhere in the exclusive and slightly scary price-on-application bracket, but if you’ve got the means, this place has the swagger. All told it’s 150 sqm which consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen diner and a courtyard balcony. Furnishings strike a pleasing blend between vintage and contemporary, with big chunks of reclaimed wood and nicely worn-in leather sofas alongside a sleek selection of appliances, AV and connectivity tech. Nomads Apt even offers free drinks, although if they are sensible there will be a fair use caveat in the small print somewhere, especially given that up to six people can stay here at once.
