We stayed at the Delux apt. for 13 days in Mid. August 2014 with two young kids (ages 3 and 6.5). Over-all it is highly recommended and you definitely get an excellent value for your pay, and I would warmly recommend this apartment to anyone, with or without kids.
My personal feeling is that the owners have gone above and beyond to provide many extras in the apt. in many aspects which I will try to mention below, and very high attention to detail, and caring in general, and you feel that very clearly as a guest. The design and aesthetics of the apt., balcony, furniture, kitchen ... is simply wonderful and it is a joy to look at. It seems to me that the owners love high quality and beautiful things, and this manifests itself in everything, from the quality of the tea & coffee beans (provided at no cost by the way) used in the very good espresso machine, to the way the trampoline is dug into the ground, to the kitchen equipment, etc ..
The apartment is quite large, with a very spacious living room that has a big long window (about 8 meters??) overlooking a beautiful open view. This was our first time in the black forest region and it does seems in terms of view to be more hills and less open than e.g. Austria (Zell am See/Kaprun). But, this specific house seems to be unique in this respect due to the great open view, probably because of the physical location of the village (Streetberg) on the southern edge of the Plato. The fireplace in the living room was great to use.
The balcony is very large and beautiful, surrounding the apt. from two sides. The roof covers almost the entire balcony so you can have your coffee outside even when it's raining ! The outside grill area is again very large and well maintained.
Although the apt. is not located at the ground floor, there are stairs directly from the balcony to the ground floor so, if the downstairs guest is not "at home" then the owners allowed the kids to use the the trampoline (in our case the guest was at work most of the day). This means you can have your coffee on the balcony and watch over the kids jump on the huge and excellent trampoline.
In addition, the garden is so big that the lower part of the garden (about 200 or 300 square meters of mostly flat grass) , can be used by all guests, and has sand box, swings, and played soccer there...
So over-all you get access to much more than just an apt. - huge balcony with grill area, garden, etc.
This really is "home away from home"!
