Looking for an apartment or house to rent as from September.

I'm looking for a 6 bedroom house, tennis court, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, a garden with tropical fruit trees and an Avery stocked with Parrots from the Amazon, preferably in the most expensive district in Hamburg and conveniently located under the flight path for the airport as I like plane spotting.

Listings show “warm”  or “kalt” Miete which means the rental price - with or without utilities included. … tep_search
