Thanks again for letting me utilize apartment #3 for my extended stay in Germany. It met my needs perfectly.
To anyone considering apartment #3,
The location is the by far the best thing about it. You cannot beat being within walking distance of everything K-town has to offer. Having a supermarket across the street was simply priceless on numerous occasions! They even make some pretty good food themselves if you’re strapped for time or want an easy dinner. Parking was easier than I thought it would be. There was always a spot available very close by. Michael was a fantastic host who communicated effectively and ensured all my questions were answered in a timely manner. No matter the issue, Michael would have it fixed by the end of the day and his record keeping when it comes to receipts and VAT forms needed for military is exceptional!
Awesome TDY stay! Thanks Michael!
We wanted to let you know that we were very grateful to be able to spend our first month in Germany in the TLA apartment you have in Kaiserslautern. It really helped to make the transition to Germany much easier, and a lot less stressful than it would have been otherwise.
The apartment had everything we needed to take care of the family, and to get us settled in Germany: Internet, a phone we could use to call the US and locally, TV, washer/dryer, space for the kids, and a kitchen with everything you’d need. It was so nice to have everything all set up when we first arrived, it was one less headache to deal with while we in-processed and got settled.
We also really enjoyed being able to walk downtown in the evenings after work, the location is great, and it’s also very close to Vogelweh, which makes it very convenient. (We actually kind of miss the apartment now that we are living further away from town and can’t walk there as easily!)
I think the thing that helped us out the most is the fact that you had a car available to use for two weeks when we arrived. The car was invaluable. The in-processing at Ramstein requires driving between three different installations, so having a car is a necessity. It saved us a ton of money to not have to rent a car, and allowed us to find houses to rent, do some shopping and get through in-processing much more quickly this way.
We also wanted to thank you for being very flexible and accommodating, especially when working around the start of our permanent housing lease, which seemed to change a few times unexpectedly. It was a pleasure working with you, and we have made sure to inform others about the apartment for when they PCS.
Thank you again for all of your help!
When I was PCSing from Sembach, I was very fortunate to find Michael Uhrig’s apartments in Kaiserslautern (close to a huge grocery store, pharmacy, and bus line to the inner city of Kaiserslautern). Being so close to Kaiserslautern, I was able to shop with ease at the large German shopping mall and the pedestrian shopping streets.
Arriving or leaving Germany is stressful for anyone. Living in a comfortable apartment, with German/English assistance is essential. To anyone that is arriving or leaving Ramstein, Kaiserslautern, or Sembach I recommend Mr. Uhrig, and his apartments, highly.
As for the two bedroom apartment — I could not be more pleased. I had two lovely bedrooms, fully supplied kitchen, dining area, modern bathrooms with both a tub and shower, lots of towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows. The comfortable apartment felt like a ‘home away from home’. I could not be more pleased.
Doing laundry was a breeze as there was a washer and dryer to use whenever I wished. In the apartment there was free WIFI, free International calling to the states, and exceptional internet access.
I used my Netflix account, so I even got my English movie ‘fix’ daily.
The landlord, Mr. Uhrig, was only a phone call away. He was extremely supportive (even providing me with a parking permit from the city for my car). His English is superb and he helped me with German language issues and translated letters for me. His assistance was greatly appreciated. I don’t think I could have made it through the PCS move without his daily help. No emergency was too small — Mr. Uhrig was there to help!

We will absolutely recommend your place to any who might be looking for a TLA.
Thanks again we’ll keep in touch.
(Good luck with Ramstein Housing, that’s another story)
The apartment is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Walking distance to grocery shopping, K-Lautern Mall, restaurants and just about 10 – 15 minute frive to Kleber Kaserne, Daenner, Vogelweh, Pulaski, Kapaun and ROB. (Rhine Ordnance Barracks) and the Autobahn.
I you’re new in Kaiserslautern, I would recommend this apartment.
