If you like to have your morning coffe on an outdoor veranda or if you enjoy a barbecue in the evening, - this could be the place for you. We have a really nice flat with its own entrance and terrace in the basement of our villa that is situated less then 100 meters from the metro station. The underground leaves frequently and it takes 12 minutes to go to downtown Stockholm. Around the metro station there is a small center with restaurants, shops and a library. The area is one of the most popular in Stockholm and a very safe and secure place to be in. And as we are so close to downtown Stockholm, we will provide you with bikes when you are here.
The flat has a bigger room with a queen sized bed, shower/wc, a kitchenspace and a dining area that can also function as a bedroom for a third person. It is not designed or luxuary, we preferred to make it a cosy home that we ourselves would love to stay in. The flat is fully equipped and we serve with clean bed linen and (website hidden) direct connection to the flat there is a little sunny veranda where you can have breakfast or make a barbeque in the evening.
In walking distance there are green areas and two lakes where you can swin and nearby there is a lovely park, especially appreciated by children, with animals (sheeps, pigs, hen and rabbits) that they can cuddle with. And all of you can of course cuddle with our nice little Yorkshireterrier Tequila or with our cool cat Mao.
The flat is perfect for a couple or for a couple with one child. The queen sized bed is suitable for two persons and the kitchen sofa is nice to sleep in for one person. If there is a fourth person, we will lend you an extra bed.
* Smoking in the flat is not allowed, but you can smoke outdoors using the ashtray.
* We will not appreciate big parties, but a normal holiday life is no problems.
* The house is old and not well isolated so therefore we don't want loud music after midnight.
* Our little dog Tequila and our cat Mao are really nice and as they like people they will probably pay you a visit, so you must like animals.
* We hope that you will enjoy the veranda and the part of the garden that is in front of the veranda. The rest of the garden is for our privacy please.
* There is no cleaning fee, but we expect our guests to leave the flat in a nice way, ie no dish left to be washed up and no rubbish for us to pick up. But you do not have to bother to vaccum-clean the floor (we will do that for you) as we know how many things one has to do leaving a rented place.
I and my family have just came back from a wonderful week in Stockholm, when we have stayed at Solveig's place. From the very first request I have sent to Solveig through this site until the very last moment there we felt very welcomed!
The place is exactly as described, the location is perfect (and where it says that the metro station is close, it means literally around the corner), the kitchen is very convenient, wi-fi is strong. The whole neighborhood, though is very close to all places of interest, feels more like a country place. My kids loved the little park nearby!
Thank you, Solveig and Janne, for being a part of our Stockholm, for all your help, for introducing us to the local food :) My daughter said that if we ever come back to Sweden, we MUST stay in your apartment again, that's how lovely it was!
Very nice and quiet neighborhood near the metro station and supermarket.
Beutiful flat with wonderful outdoor space, Solveig and Janne made us feel like home.
Solveig made us feel very welcome.
The fridge was stocked for a late snack and breakfast.
The ICA store was close by and well stocked.
Very easy to use the T station.
Solveig's house is in a safe and quiet neighborhood and it's really close to the metro station (you exit the garden and it's practically there..as is the supermarket). We didn't have time to explore the area very well, but we managed to get to a lake which was 10 minutes away (Solveig actually pointed us in that direction) where we could take a swim. The house is exactly as presented and the veranda, facing the street and the garden is just wonderful to spend time on. Solveig and her husband were great hosts, giving us all the information we might have wanted and being there if we needed them. BONUS, super cute tiny dog that shows up every once in a while and lets you pet it.
We were very welcome and felt comfortable from the first moment. The flat is not far away (10min by underground) from the city center in a nice and quiet area. We were provided with towels, bed linen and a lot of very useful and detailed information about Stockholm. The communication with Solveig was always great- the desciption of how to get to the flat from the airport was just perfect :) We would have loved to use the bikes as well, but we did not have enough time as there is so much to discover in Stockholm. Another bonus point of the flat is the supermarket which is very close to the flat and is open until 11 pm.
The apartment was a home away from home. As soon as we walked in we felt like the place was ours. It was so clean, so comfortable and had all the amenities necessary for a perfect summer weekend in Stockholm. We spent every evening BBQing on the patio and watching the sun go down over the garden. Solveig was away that weekend and therefore not around to meet us, but she was easy to get in touch with and her directions from the airport were extremely helpful. Her son welcomed us to the apartment and was able to answer all of our questions about the city. They are excellent hosts. I would definitely stay here again!
The flat is ideally located in a very quiet area, 2mn from Aspudden subway station, on the red line (Södermalm, Gamla Stan, Central Stationen...), and close to nice bathing places. Janne and Solveig really are the perfect hosts, super-nice, and the flat is provided with everything you might need ! The terrace is just perfect to hang out and have your meals when the weather is nice. The flat is just beneath the hosts' own living space, so you can hear them move about above, but nothing really bothering.
L'appartement est idéalement situé dans une zone très calme à 2mn du métro Aspudden, sur une ligne de métro très pratique (Södermalm, Gamla Stan, Cental stationen...) et tout près de plusieurs jolis lieux de baignade. Janne et Solveig sont des hôtes parfaits, et on a tout ce dont on a besoin dans l'appartement. La petite terrasse qui donne sur le jardin est idéale par beau temps pour se relaxer et prendre les repas! L'appartement étant situé sous leur maison, on entend assez bien nos hôtes se déplacer au-dessus, mais ce n'est guère gênant.

Hi, my name is Solveig and I live with my husbond Janne in a cosy old house just outside the citycentre of Stockholm. When our two children moved out, we rebuilt part of our house to a nice flat that we rent out. We have often rented from private persons and have such exellent experience of it and would therefore like to give the same nice reception to our visitors.
We are quite layed back and we love to be in our wild garden, but we also enjoy traveling very much, preferrebly not in the summer though, as that is the loveliest time in the garden. When we travel, we try to go off-track and just hang around. The very best travel we have done was the 5 months when we lived in Liverpool and the fantastic two years we lived and worked in Valparaíso, Chile.
We are borned and bred in Stockholm and can therefore give you all sorts of advice about what to do and where to go. As we really enjoy good food and to make a barbecue, the flat contains all sorts of things that you need to be able to cook, including equipment for making a barbecue.
