This good sized apartment accommodation was perfect for my family of 4 and small dog. We didn’t feel like were cramped on top of each other for the weeks pending our home getting squared away in the area. The equipped kitchen-and access to a grill on the hot days- kept per diem costs down so we weren’t worried about using our TLA. I was able to keep up on laundry, let our dog roam in the fenced garden while the girls picked a variety of berries in the morning. The staff were all very friendly and personable while tolerating our noise and respecting our privacy. I’ve PCS’d over seas before and the time spent in TLA in inherently stressful- I can say that this was our easiest transition yet, largely due to our comfortable atmosphere here. The DeMarino family

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!

Perfect! The experience was designed with the PCS’ing family in mind! Michael provided an on-target product, from design to execution. The moment we contacted him, he called (speaking perfect English) to ascertain our needs, and confirm his service was a good match. He was understanding of our timeline changes, and was able to meet us at the apartment with short notice when we arrived early. The apartment was exactly as we hoped it would be, and the use of a car was invaluable. Perhaps what best sums up the experience was when Michael told us, “You are PCS’ing, and I am here to help you—we are a team.” Time and again, Michael backed these words with action, resulting in a perfectly smooth transition for our family. Use the easy button—call Michael! Alex & Sheila & family

Dear Mr Uhrig,

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! James and Erica Beck

As a teacher, I have high expectations for everything and boy was I not disappointed. Living in Michael Uhrig’s temporary living accommodations in the Kaiserslautern area was exceptional.

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! Heidi Tobin

Micheal, the landlord is very friendly and flexible on all the requests! For us it was the most easy and comfortable transition in such stressful time. Not only is the location perfect, the apartment is equipped with everything necessary. For the duration of our stay, the landlord provided us a car, free of charge! Thank you Michael! Elena

Need a TLA that feels like a home – not a hotel? You can find one in Michael Uhrig’s first floor TLA apartment located in K Town! First Floor, Two Bedrooms, Kitchen, TV Room and One Bath….with all the amenities and then some. You can do your own laundry in the first floor laundry area and you can truly enjoy the outdoors sitting on the patio grillin’ and chillin’! A grocery store is conveniently located across the street as well as Take Out Thai! Your host, Michael is very accommodating and can arrange it all including helping you obtain a street parking pass! My last few weeks in Germany were truly stress-free as my accommodations were more than I could have hoped for – seriously a great place to stay and feel at home while transitioning! Kim

Michael’s apartment was beautifully put together and absolutely amazing. It had everything we needed to make the transition to Germany quick and easy. My girlfriend and I actually had to try to find the amenities that were missing and anything we needed Michael provided within a day or two. The wifi was fast, the water pressure was great and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location was great, with a huge grocery store right across the street that’s open until 2200 most days. And even though the apartment is right on the edge Kaiserslautern, I rarely experience any traffic coming and going to Ramstein (about 20 minutes from door to door). There was even a gym within walking distance (High5 Gym) My girlfriend especially enjoyed the quick/responsive Smart TVs (we were able to log into our Netflix). Nate Alexander

„The apartment is spacious and with a master bedroom king size bed and a separate bedroom with twin beds, which are separated by the dining room. One bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Thick doors to all rooms. We used the microwave and coffee maker all the time. Washer and dryer are in the building. Amazing how quiet the area most of time and especially at night, even with windows open. A supermarket is a block away. Parking on the street (wider than most streets) was 3 euros for 24 hours. Reasonable. The apartment has double pane windows and shutters. The TV has 500 channels with at least 10 English channels and the ability to record shows for viewing at a later time. The apartment has a telephone for free calls in Europe and USA. Very nice large flat screen TV in living room. The apartment is on the second story of a three story house, stairs as expected. Not very much traffic on wide street in front of row house. The area and row houses are will maintained and it is quiet neighborhood. As a recommendation, if renting an auto, rent a medium size or small size auto, better for driving around the city and German country side. The apartment was clean well decorated and plenty of towels. Should bring bath soap until you can go shopping. Full stand up shower in tub with shower curtains was nice. Nice full L shape sofa in front of the TV for comfort and relaxing at night. For me this apartment would be good for an extended stay. I will definitely stay at the apartment in the future. My family consists of two parents and 18 year old daughter. All very happy with the apartment. We stayed for 11 days in Kaiserslautern visiting Oma. Pleasant travels“ Mark

We throughly our stay! Michael was helpful & easy to chat too; for us, its a bonus his English is perfect. 😎 The flat is Spacious, Clean & Modern… and in the heart of Kaiserslautern. Everything is within walking distance; 5 minuets to groceries, 10 minuets to large shopping mall and local restaurants near the farmers market. We used the car in offer and it was great! This flat is a hidden gem… and Yes! We will be back.

Hello. We just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay at your TLA in Kaiserslautern. The location just blocks away from a big grocery store and bus stop made getting the basics we needed very easy. The apartment had everything from dishes to laundry supplies! The internet was very fast, we streamed our favorite Net flicks shows while we surfed the internet looking for places to visit, and being able to call the US for free made keeping our family back home in the states easy. we couldn’t have asked for more. Also we’d like to thank you for taking us to get the parking permit it really helped save money and time once we got a car.

We will absolutely recommend your place to any who might be looking for a TLA.

Thanks again we’ll keep in touch.

Cheers! Tony & Pamela

Great apartment setup! Michael was super to work with! I came to the KMC as a Reservist not knowing the housing situation. Michael had me covered for a place to stay on arrival and until I was able to find permanent housing. I stayed at the Pariserstrasse address and it had everything you could want and it was all brand new. It was a short walk to the walkplatz in K-town and a short 15 min drive to Ramstein. If the car is available, it is a great little stealth mobile to help you get around until you get your own car. I can’t say enough about how easy it was to work with Michael! Great guy!

To whom it may concern my family of 3 stayed in this apartment for 45 days and it felt just like home. We had all of the amenities that we had back in the United States ranging from Internet , cable, Washer Dryer, Full Kitchen, and Ironing board. The location is perfect due to the fact of the close proximity to the mall and within a few miles from all of the Military Installations in the area. Not to mention if any issues arise the management was quick to resolve any issues almost instantly. IF your looking to feel like home I truly recommend. The Bartlett-Morris Family

Just moved out from TLA apartment in Saenger Strasse in downtown Kaiserslautern. It was a wonderful stay for almost two months. The apartment is fully furnished. Well design. With WIFI. Pet friendly. Has parking space. Our landlord Michael and Thomas speaks very good English. Very helpful and was able to explain everything.

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. Dothager Family
