About us

We're an international couple: Anna-Lena is from Stade and David is from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. When we moved into the Stadtvilla, we wanted to create a welcoming vacation rental unit where we could host family and friends from around the world and show them all that Stade has to offer.

Since then, we've renovated our new home from top to bottom, creating attractive, homey spaces while paying homage to the Stadtvilla's historic character. Following the principles of Anna-Lena's company, ALMEY Design, we are very focused on quality and sustainability and try to reuse existing materials in new designs whenever possible.


The Stadtvilla is our dream home. We ask that you treat it with respect and care, and observe the following house rules:

  • All guests must be registered upon arrival. No unregistered guests are allowed on the premises without informing us ahead of time.
  • Please maintain agreed-upon check-in and check-out times, or contact us in advance if there are any changes to your schedule.
  • To protect our wooden floors, please do not wear outdoor shoes inside the apartment.
  • When you leave the building, please turn all lights off, close all windows and reduce the heating to a minimum comfortable temperature.
  • Quiet hours are from 11pm-6am.
  • No smoking.
  • No pets.
  • No parties or events.
  • No illegal activity of any kind.
  • Any damages will be compensated from the guest's security depoist and reported.
  • The lost key fee is 200 Euros.
