We are a family of six people, including the three oldest children are grown and have left home. Still in the house are two of us, Hakan and Gisela, and our 18 year old son.
Previously we have rented out rooms to students, but having rented apartment in Stockholm via airbnb we have been eager to try this. We like to have people in the house and it is exciting to have new meetings.
We live in a big old brick building on the west of Lund. Quarter around here have mixed housing, here are villas, townhouses and high-rises. Our house is located in an overgrown garden without transparency, which you obviously have access to.
We rent two rooms on the second floor. Rooms have private entrance, share hall and toilet / shower and a fully equipped kitchen in the basement. Can be rented by everything from the lone traveler to the little family (note that we have three different ads so just select was suits your needs).
Bed linen and towels are included in the prize.
- The smaller room can accommodate two people, including one in real bed
- The larger room can accommodate 3 people, 2 of which in real beds
If you rent both rooms, you'll have the toilet and the kitchen all to yourself..
The rooms are bright with high ceilings and wooden floors. You can cook and store your own food in your own kitchen, or collect food from one of Västers many restaurants / takeaways. Well-stocked grocery stores are within walking distance and it is 5 minutes to the nearest bus stop. 15 minutes away, we have a beautiful ravine, Rinnebäck ravine, perfect for a little excursion (maybe take a cache). More about Lund found on (website hidden). We also help you naturally with tips if you want.
The environment is important for us so we have decided to warm up the house and water with heat pump and solar panels.
Two nights a week we have in our part of the house which we call alternative culture ((website hidden)) where you are also very welcome to try something.
Please note that the cleaning fee is for final cleaning, but of course you can borrow cleaning equipment during your stay, if you want to,
Vi vill ha tyst efter kl 23, vi börjar jobba tidigt :-).
Inget bra ställe för fester utan här är det lugnt och skönt.
This property is about a 15-minute walk from the rail station at a brisk pace; I would estimate 20-25 minutes from the centre of the university. There is a good pizzaria, as well as a lovely little bakery, just a few minutes' walk away. A nearby park provides access to extensive pedestrian and cycling paths.
We stayed in both upstairs bedrooms, with their single shared bathroom, and had access to the kitchen in the basement. All the rooms were well-stocked with what we needed: bedding, towels, cookware, kitchen appliances. The floors in the upstairs units are older wood, but not particularly creaky. We both found the beds comfortable. The shower is strong, water-tight, and easy to operate. The bathroom doesn't vent particularly well, so even with the fan left on and the door open it can stay steamy for some time after a shower.
The rental units and kitchen are tidy -- not antiseptic, but well kept up. Particularly in the basement kitchen you can find a cobweb here and there if you look for one. But this is a well-maintained home where everything works.
We dealt only with one of the hosts, but he was helpful, friendly, organized, and spoke excellent English. The hosts and their family (and other guests, if there were any) were unobtrusive and quiet. Overall I found it a good balance between friendly helpfulness and respect for our time and privacy. They also kindly gave us the use of two bikes, neither of which will set any land speed records, but which were solid and functional.
Bottom line: good value for money; good experience; I would stay there again; I recommend it.
Everything was very good in Gisela and Håkans place. They were specially friendly and easy to communicate with. We had our own little kitchen in the basement along with two clean and nice rooms and a bathroom upp stairs. It suited us perfectly. They were very helpful and had left us some snacks and drinks for breakfast in the kitchen, which we found to be a kind gesture. We would definitely stay there again.
We absolutely loved this little apartment, it was the perfect place to stay for my friend and me. Everything looks exactly like in the pictures, is clean and cozy. It is wonderful that we were able to park our car in the driveway. This house is conveniently located, downtown is not far, but you can easily reach the main roads for daytrips through Skane. While we did not use the kitchen, we thought it very considerate of the hosts to provide a few things for the first breakfast.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Property in a nice & quiet area, near to town, parks, shops etc. Walking distance to everything but still great to be able to make use of the bikes! Hosts very friendly, had use of garden for entertaining family, and the trampoline and paddling pool was a winner with our toddler.
The only thing that we felt was a bit lacking, considering the description "for the family", was facilities specific to babies/young children, such as a cot and a highchair. However, we managed by moving the beds around to keep him safe in the night.
Finally, much appreciation goes out to the hosts for their purchase and provision of fans, although they were hard to come by, as the weather was exceptionally hot during our stay!
Would definitely stay there again!
Wir waren das erste Mal in Lund und haben uns bei Gisela und Hakan sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Wohnung ist super und man fühlt sich sofort wie zuhause. Unsere Gastgeber haben uns sogar ein kleines Frühstück bereitgestellt, damit wir am ersten Morgen versorgt waren. Gisela und Hakan sind sehr unkompliziert ohne dabei dem Gast auf die Nerven zu gehen. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
It was great experience. Hakan and Gisela were so friendly and supportive. Actually this place is the warmest place that we have ever been. We came there together with our little boy and they even prepared the small bed for our son. The apartment is really quite and comfortable. We think this is definitely a good place to stay in Lund. If we come back Lund, we will stay here if possible.
