About this listing
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 (with washingmaschin and a tumbledryer), 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.
For those of you travelling to Stockholm in order to participate in a conferens or other events at the Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö, it might be good to know that there is a direct bus connection from Aspudden to Stockholmsmässan that will only take 17 minutes of travelling.
The flat is independent to the rest of the house and it has its own entrance.
* 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.
It was a very nice and comfortable Appartment for us. The sightseeing tips of the very kind hosts where very helpful, many thanks for this. I think we will visit this wonderful city again and maybe we can stay at your home again :-) Tack fär allt.
Friendly and welcoming hosts that I could have been friends with ! Cosy comfortable accomodation with sunny verandah and private (website hidden) had all that was important for me. Quiet location even though the metro and supermarket were just a few houses down the road the traffic does not come in the direction of the house.The accomodation is set back off the street behind other houses and could be a little hard to find in the dark.I really enjoyed the use of the bikes and biked into Stockholm and then in the opposite direction to swim at the beautiful scenic lakes,such a contrast from the busy Stockholm and a must to walk or bike around.Aspudden is a lovely suburb.
I could hear walking around upstairs in early hours of morning as I am a light sleeper but nothing much worries me.I had a great 4 days stay.The biggest plus was the scenic lakes,Stockholm easy access with metro so close,quiet and very comfortable.
We really appreciated to host you, nice and easygoing, we are so pleased that you discovered the loveliness of our neighbourhood Aspudden. It would be great to see you back again.
Janne works shift hours. We had not thought about it, -that in the very silent night, his steps must be able to hear for our neighbours/guests in the flat. Thank you for telling us, we will informe our coming guests in order to prevent them from worrying about that.
Hope that you had a great flight back and hope to see you again sometime.
Solveig and Janne
We had a wonderful week at Solveig's and Janne's place. It was quiet, yet centrally situated as the underground is literally round the corner. So we were in town within 10 minutes.
The flat was really cosy and light with a great veranda and also we had enough space for our luggage. But best of all were our really nice hosts who gave us a very warm welcome and we loved their cat and dog. Thanks again for the honey, Solveig, it's delicious!
When we come to Stockholm again we will definitely stay with Solveig again!
We really appreciated to host you! Both of you were so cheerful and lovely to have a little chat with. And we were also very pleased to see how much you enjoyd the veranda and the little (pretty wild) garden in front of it. The only misfortune was that I missed to say goodbye to you with just a few minutes. Hopefully we will see you in our flat again some day in the future.
Solveig and Janne
Dies war unser erstes Airbnb und es war sehr schön. Die Wohnung war sehr gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Die tolle Veranda war unser zweites Wohnzimmer. Solveig und Janne waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und haben uns viele Tipps für Stockholm gegeben. Nette Gastgeber, nette Nachbarn und süße Haustiere sowie der schöne Garten haben dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns wie zu Hause gefühlt haben. Wenn wieder Stockholm, dann bei Solveig und Janne!
Thanks for all. The stay in Stockholm was cool with the house and the bikes ;)
Unfortunately, a disappointment : Before the trip there was proper communication . This was my ninth private accommodation in Sweden . So far we had only very positive experiences in Sweden . But we have to leave this apartment because it was too dirty . Due to the previous good reviews we were disappointed . It is not an easy decision to leave a paid apartment and this was the first mail in my life . I was not the first to review this issue . Unfortunately, the owner was not present on that day , the keys were handed over by the son . Due to the subsequent emails , I believe that the landlady honestly do not believe that the apartment was dirty . I think : here there are different opinions what is clean . She criticized for not having made contact with the son . By the way : for three adults , the apartment is too small , in my view .
We have never had such a worried and insecure person as a guest, and (according to the long conversationes we had in andvance) we knew in that there would probalbly be some problems hosting Ralf. Therefore our adult son took extra care about them, but to his astonishmnt and to our dissapointment, Ralf left within a few minutes without saying anything, neither to our son nor to us (that were contactable all the time by telephone, sms, emai, etc).
It was a little charming flat, perfect for us three. The veranda is the perfect place to have afternoon tea, with the mini garden as the view. Travel to and from the places we wanted to visit was very easy, so the location was perfect. The metro station is very close by and the neighbourhood is peaceful. Would love to stay here again if we come back to Stockholm in the future!

About the Host, Solveig
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.
