About this listing
Right in Stockholm's Vasastan neighborhood, 20m from the metro, or walk to the center of town in 20 minutes. The building is from 1910 and the space was recently remodeled . It is a 6 room apartment, 136 m2.
This is a very large apartment by Stockholm standards. It is situated amongst some of Stockholm's best parks and hippest neighborhoods, including Vasaparken and Birkastan. There are 21 windows and lots of light. Very important in Stockholm! The kitchen has great appliances including a Miele dishwasher that automatically opens when the dishes are done. My favorite!
Please note that I occasionally offer the apartment at a reduced rate if my girlfriend and I will be living there at the time. Check the notes in the calendar!
You can use the whole apartment except for one tucked-away bedroom. Kitchen, dining room, living room, three bedrooms and water closet.
Interaction with Guests
I may be available for a quick introduction to the apartment and neighborhood, but otherwise will not be present during your stay.
Vasastan is my favorite of the four boroughs in Stockholm. It feels like a neighborhood, but has tons of interesting shops and great nightlife. We frequently walk to the center from home.
Subway is half a block away. You also get a Stockholm City Bikes card until the end of October.
Airport bus is 2 blocks away and leaves at least every 15 minutes. Kids under 16 are free.
Other Things to Note
Free wifi. Supermarket across the street. Several cafés and restaurants on the block. The bars in Birkastan start about a block away. Photo gallery specializing in surf photography half a block away. Theatre half a block away. Spotify connected to Sonos in the kitchen and living room.
No smoking. And don't spill anything on my new furniture!
Paul’s apartment is spacious, bright and stylish. Great location with lots of restaurants and supermarket nearby and close to metro.
Paul is very nice and easy going. My special thanks for his arrangement to buy a birthday cake for us so we can have a surprise party in the apartment.
The apartment was spacious and the beds were really comfortable. Paul was there to welcome us and offered helpful tips on where to go in Stockholm, even offering us some metro cards to use during our stay.
The area has some great restaurants and it's very close to the metro. Also it's right next to the Acne Archive store :) perfect! Thanks!
Notre séjour chez Paul s'est très bien passé.
Aucune mauvaise surprise: le logement est tel que décrit sur le site. Sa situation est idéale, dans un quartier agréable, à la sortie du métro.
L'appartement est très lumineux, confortable. Il faut s'habituer à la lumière qui vous réveille à 3 heures du matin... En fonction de la saison bien sur.
Paul est un hôte sympathique, discret mais présent si l'on a besoin de renseignements.
Une adresse à recommander.
The apartment ist very spacious and comfortable. There is a living room with TV and a computer, a big kitchen and dining room and we used two of the three available bedrooms.
Beds are big and comfortable and the bathroom is very bright and nicely done.
Paul and his girlfriend gave us a warm welcome, they also stayed at the apartment when we were there, so Paul helped us finding good cafes and shopping areas in the city and even called us a taxi when we had to go to the airport.
We enjoyed our stay at Paul's apartment very much, even if we would have wished it to be a bit cleaner (i.e. kitchen and bathroom towels)
The location is central, there is a good connection to the airport and metro station. The building is on the corner of to main streets, so you shouldn't leave the windows open at night :).
If you are looking for a spacious place with 3 bedrooms in a central area of town, this could be a good choice for you.
Paul was a gracious host. The flat is large and very nice. Really appreciated the suggestions finding our way around time. Thanks again for making our stay in Stockholm a great experience. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Stockholm.
appartement tout à fait conforme à la description, un très beau logement. Paul a fait le maximum pour faciliter la communication en jonglant entre le français et l'anglais. Toute ma famille a apprécié le sejour, appartement à recommander pour une famille.
Die Bilder lassen ein realistisches Bild des großen, gemütlichen und stylischen Appartments entstehen, das sehr praktisch gelegen ist, um die Stadt zu erkunden. Die Bushaltestelle direkt vor der Tür und die U-Bahn etwa 100m entfernt eröffnen alle Möglichkeiten. Fußläuferisch ist außerdem ein angesagtes Kneipenviertel zu erreichen. Ein Supermarkt, der lange geöffnet hat, ist direkt gegenüber, genauso wie ein superleckeres Thai-Restaurant. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und verbrachten, auch durch hilfreiche Tipps der Gastgeber, eine schöne Zeit in Stockholm. Wärmstens zu empfehlen, wir kommen gerne wieder!
About the Host, Paul
Easy going, creative type. I like cooking, entertaining, local, organic food, yoga, wine, lots of good music, art, film, nature, the ocean, traveling, and reading Lionel Shriver, and the family life! I like to have fun and not take life too seriously. I enjoy hosting and meeting new friends from all cultures and backgrounds, and I don't really follow the mainstream of American or Swedish culture much at all. I am a techy, and still love my work well into a long career in video games. I feel that relaxed travel is easier when you have a good base in which to recuperate, and I try to be as accommodating as possible.
