Home is where your heart is

Lose your heart to our apartment in Großkarlbach!

Our wish is that our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay. We renovated and decorated the apartment through the spring and summer months of 2020 by ourselves with experience and a fine eye for detail. In addition to the new renovation, our guests can expect tasteful decoration and cleanliness when staying with us. The apartment is designed for two to four guests.

It is in the ground floor of our 300 year old winemaker’s estate. In-door temperatures are adaptable – warm in winter, and cool in summer.

We offer you the apartment that we would like to live in ourselves, equipped with everything that we love ourselves: starting with high ceilings, original wooden floors and historic ceramic tiles from Villeroy & Boch. and a wide assortment of antique furniture as well as a unique and well equipped French metal bed to sleep literally ‘like God in France’ – right in the middle of the Pfalz. For the ‘heart of the apartment’, the kitchen, we chose exquisite furniture from Leicht Kitchen and high quality kitchen appliances from Miele.

We purchased many lovely things for your stay:

  • down or microfibre duvet at your choice
  • bed sheets from Bassetti
  • a new little baby bed
  • tableware by Ritzenhoff & Breker
  • cutlery from Zwilling
  • pots from Silit
  • towels from Möve
  • … and so much more

You will especially love the tile stove which we heat up for you in winter. A Bluetooth speaker and Internet TV with Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and Netflix are also available.

Our courtyard invites you to sit and enjoy the sun. We want you to feel home here.


Your car can be parked in our garage, and your bike has a save spot, too. There is no accommodation for pets. Smoking is prohibited inside. No parties inside or out.

Ulla and Franz prove their knack for expansion, renovation and decoration.

Armin L. from Otzberg, our advertising agency

We were granted the priveledge of being the first guests in their estate, which is located in their very cozy courtyardly. There were two of us and we had more than enough space. The apartment is furnished with great attention to detail and offers many amenities.

Simon S. from Zurich, September 2020

After we were allowed to choose the type of duvet and pillow in advance, Ulla gave us a warm welcome. There was already mineral water and a bottle of wine in the refrigerator. The apartment has been completely rebuilt, is spacious and very well equipped. Everything was super clean. Ulla and Franz gave us good tips for restaurants, wineries and excursions. We felt very comfortable and would come back anytime.

Kirsten R. from Oldenburg, September 2020

Our stay with Ulla in Großkarlbach was wonderful. We had a very large, modernly renovated apartment in a winegrower's house, where nothing was lacking. Unfortunately, we couldn't enjoy everything because we were on the road a lot. We recommend this accommodation unreservedly and look forward to the next time we can stay with Ulla again :o)))

Ruth E. from Althegnenberg, September 2020

We felt very comfortable with Ulla & Franz. You are very warm and attentive hosts. The apartment is furnished with a lot of love and the kitchen left nothing to be desired. We especially liked the fireplace with tiled stove. The hours by the fire with a delicious wine were unforgettable. The area offers awesome hiking a cycling locations. In particular, Ulla's tips on the wineries and the very good Palatinate gastronomy are worth gold. We would love to come back.

Peter F. from Möchengladbach, October 2020

Our autumn vacation with Ulla and Franz in the Sternenhof was really wonderful! A great apartment in which you quickly feel at home! It's a shame that the time went by in a flash ... Birgitt and Jeremy

Jeremy F. from Kleinwinternheim, October 2020

We enjoyed it very much with you guys and we'd love to come back. Svenja & Robert

Svenja F. from Wuppertal, October 2020

We were lucky to book this great accommodation over Pentecost. The apartment is really nice and beautifully furnished – nothing is missing and we felt at home from the beginning. This is also because of the very friendly hosts, Ulla and Franz! The only thing we were disappointed in was that we didn’t find the time to have a coffee or some wine with Ulla and Franz anymore. But we’ll catch up on that. 🙂 We can totally recommend this small gem! Sandra and Carmen

Carmen M. from Westoverledingen, May 2021

Wonderful short holiday! We found a spacious, tastefully furnished apartment in a former winery that has been outstandingly restored and renovated with original construction material. The kitchen is modern and functional. Technically, nothing was missing. The hosts are remarkably friendly and helpful. We would like to come back and we would recommend the apartment to others.

Getrud and Thomas G. from Paderborn, June 2021

Perfect weekend getaway! The apartment is furnished with great taste and style and is very clean. We have seldom found such a well-equipped kitchen in a holiday apartment. Ulla is very committed to making the guest's time in her Sternenhof as pleasant as possible, we felt very welcome. Since the weather was nice, we were able to sit at a table with chairs in the pretty courtyard. Sun beds are also available. ... We will be back, because hospitality is very important here, thanks for that!

Kerstin G. from Koblenz, July 2021

You feel at home, there is everything you need. Kind welcome and very friendly hosts. The rooms are very clean, furnished with great taste. The bathroom is large and beautiful. We also spent wonderful hours in the courtyard and had cheerful get-togethers with Ulla and Franz. We will certainly come back and make sure to bring friends. Fully satisfied. Thank you for everything in the house of Sternenhof 👍

Ulrike, Ditmar, Sophie and Romy from Laufen and Munich, August 2021

Relaxing and varied holiday week in the Palatinate The apartment was even more beautiful than we imagined – exquisitely and tastefully equipped! And after Ulla’s warm welcome we immediately felt at home and were able to enjoy our holiday right from the start.

Andrea and Horst D. from Radolfzell, August 2021

Classy dream holiday Hi Ulla and Franz, we enjoyed our stay with you to the fullest. The apartment’s furnishing is elegant and selected with great taste. Everything was perfect: breakfast from the bakery at the station and the butcher shop across the street, lunch at “Eistal-Café” with crullers and cakes, in the evening off to “Winzergarten”. The familiar way of taking care leaves nothing to be desired. I really enjoyed the talks with Gustav. During our stay there was a great concert by “The Beat Brothers” in the courtyard. The apartment is highly recommended and we would love to come back!

Andrea and Uli D. from Spain, August 2021

Relaxing break at the Wine Route We spent 4 days at Ulla and Franz’s in the Sternenhof, a beautifully restored old estate in a lovely winemaking village (Großkarlbach). We felt comfortable all around. The hosts are warm-hearted, helpful and cordial – we felt highly welcome. The apartment is lovingly renovated, furnished with great taste, sophisticatedly equipped and very clean. You can find everything you may need. Only a few steps away from the Sternenhof there is gourmet restaurant Karlbacher which makes gourmet hearts beat faster. Starting in Großkarlbach, you can easily discover the beautiful Palatinate. So – an absolute recommendation, we would come back every time!

Leonie R. and Florian S. from Berlin, September 2021

Fantastic accommodation!! We felt very well and nothing was missing! Great check-in and checkout!

Shopping service

No time to do the groceries?

Everybody knows – before travelling, there is always tons of things that want to be done and you have no time to the groceries or you forget. The trip to the apartment is long, you arrive late and tired … and the fridge is yawning.

No problem! You will always find basic equipment in our apartment, such as coffee, tea, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Additional food can freshly be delivered by us, if you want us to. An example for a purchase is the following:

  • 1 small rye-wheat bread
  • 250 grams of butter
  • 1 litre of fresh milk
  • 500 grams of whole milk yoghurt
  • 10 eggs
  • 100 grams of boiled ham
  • 100 grams of Gouda cheese
  • 2 types of homemade jam from Sternenhof (each approx. 125 grams)
  • 2 apples
  • 250 grams of tomatoes
  • 2 bottles of sparkling water, medium or classic

Just bring it up some days before your arrival!

Photo shooting

Vacation … time for a photo shooting!

Rested and relaxed – being on vacation, we do feel good and look more attractive. Take the chance and do a professional photo shooting, for example at the vineyard in Großkarlbach.

It is Ulla’s pleasure to take photos of you. While she studied in Hildesheim, photography was her practical and theoretical major. Her subjects were the daily life and documentary, portraits, artistical photography, black and white and colour laboratory. She also did the exams in photography. Since then, Ulla is photographing for music enterprises, that often contains shooting musicians, other artists and of course a lot of events. Another focus are weddings and again and again: portraits.

At the moment, she likes to take both of her reflex cameras “Canon EOS D50” and, her favourite, “Canon EOS D6 Mark II”. You have got about an hour of time to get some lovely pictures of yourself. You will get them slightly edited via USB for private use, with naming the copyright also for social media use.

Just bring it up some days before your arrival!
Certainly we can manage spontaneously, too.
