“Excellent location and very comfortable flat”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We spent a week in this apartment. I have nothing but praise for it. Thiole, the owner, could not have been more helpful in every way. He speaks excellent English and knows the area very well.
The flat is very comfortable and well kitted out. There is a lovely balcony with superb views over the Rhine and across to the opposite hillside.
The property is in an elevated position in a small village and a 5 minute drive into the lovely village of Bacharach. The long distance Rhine hiking trail is 30 meters from the property.

“A real winner”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We booked in for a week in June 2016 based on all the previous reviews and pictures. We were not disappointed. We had a small bit of trouble finding the place since our SatNav only spoke German.
The place is really great. Two good sized bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with twin beds), bathroom with a stand up shower and a large bathtub, a kitchen with all the utensils needed, and a large lounge (they have sateillite TV with BBC, CNN, MSNBC in English). The best part is a long balcony that runs the length of the unit and overlooks the Rhine. Husband loved sitting out there with his glass of wine and his binoculars watching the boats up and down the river. It is very peaceful and quiet.
Unfortunately we had one issue (which wasn’t Thilo’s fault). A huge storm a week before had knocked out the wifi and phone lines in the whole area. Thilo kept us updated on the progress they were making. (we finally did get it back the day before we left).
I would definitely recommend Schau-Rhein. It is well situated above Bacharach (you will need a car) to have the peace and quiet but close enough to drive into town in about 5-10 minutes (plenty of parking in the town).

“Incredible View, beautiful apartment, great hosts”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This lovely vacation rental is just a few minutes drive (uphill) from Bacharach, providing an incredible view of the Rhine River and surrounding area. We enjoyed sitting on the nice balcony off the kitchen and family room in the morning, listening to the songbirds and just drinking in the wonderful scene and the refreshing fresh air. Thilo and Sophie greeted us warmly and generously welcomed us with bottles of wine and mineral water as well as delicious coffee thoughtfully provided for the morning. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is really nice, too. Great shower! We slept well and felt relaxed and happy in this bright, spacious, nicely decorated apartment. The host's good communication and availability for questions really added to the excellent experience we had, we highly recommend this apartment!

“A Super Experience”
Reviewed 28 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A superb choice in the Rhine valley from every point of view. It was an extremely well equipped and large apartment with the bedroom and the dining both facing the Rhine Valley. An extremely good view and that is the highlight of the apartment. Due to the large windows and glass doors you can enjoy this view in the cosy comfort of your room.

Besides the view and the apartment, Thilo was a pleasure to talk to. He helped us in every way and was just a phone call away for any questions.

Bacharach was a great choice too, since we had very easy access to the towns of the Rhine and the Mosel valley very easily from here by car. Of course I am not sure how convenient this place would be without a rental car.

A great experience and would go here undoubtedly if I were to visit the Rhine valley again. A special thanks to Thilo for being there.

“I want this place to stay my secret spot on earth...”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

You can believe all the great reports this place receives, it's all true! Second time we stayed here... perfect last year, perfect this year...
The village of Medensheid where this rental is located, on top of the bank next to Bacharach, makes for a perfect place to relax, enjoy the views, the nature, peace & quiet... yet close enough, if not smack in the middle of the castles you want to visit in the Middle Rhine region.
The biggest benefits of staying here (no particular order):
-panoramic views: close enough to the river to enjoy the sights, but no noise of trains and river-cruises.
-great hosts, (who kept their cool more than me when my teenage son managed to crash the otherwise excellent internet).
-the rental itself is very clean, everything works, the kitchen is super equipped(and has that great view too), plus there is the famous 'red folder', filled with info (including QR-codes). I get more info out of this map than from the tourist information center at Bacharach (no joke!).
-the bathroom.... towels, but also bed-sheets are softer than at my own house.
-convenient: you can arrive and leave on any day you chose, avoiding the start of your holidays with stress.
-I can go on but... seriously, the reviews and scoring of others... it all speaks for itself.

Minuses...
-you really do need a car here.
-for teenagers who want to go out in the evening... Medensheid is a small and quiet village.
-you need to book early in advance, this secret spot is becoming less and less secret...
-the weather was colder than last year. Sorry... I'm trying but I can't really find serious minuses. I'm not biased, I just love this little spot on earth...

“Visiting the Rhine? Make a date with Schau Rhine, definitely!”

Thilo is discreet, maintains your privacy, but is ready to help whenever needed. He is a Host with a generous spirit and helpful friendly manner. Excellent English speaker. The apartment is exceptionally clean, well laid out, spacious, and with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Beds, chairs kitchenalia all practical and good quality. Some nice thoughtful touches included. Wine, chocolate, everything for the bathroom. The best Rhine and mountain views from a lovely balcony with space for alfresco dining.. Parking, garden, walks for all abilities stretching miles from the doorstep. Above Bacharach , in my opinion the best Rhine Village of them all. Car needed to reach the house in a pretty quiet village up a surprisingly winding steep hill road that is quiet, that causes no problem for experienced drivers. Excellent choice.

Thilo and his wife were at the apartment when we arrived and were wonderful hosts. They were eager to help us with our needs and oriented us to the apartment and things to do. The apartment was super clean. The neighborhood is quiet and away from the noise of the trains and ships down by the river. The view from the balcony is to die for. We spent as much time out there as we did inside! Thanks, Thilo. If we are in Bacharach again, we will look you up.
