About this listing
This is our unique and utterly cozy penthouse apartment located in popular and buzzing Vesterbro, close to the central station and the town hall square and with everything Copenhagen has to offer within short walking distance
The apartment is located on top of an old traditional danish town building from 1880. There's 5 floors up and there's no elevator, but the atmosphere and light up here is just fantastic and well worth the many stairs! The apartment has just recently been completely refurbished, with new wooden pine floors and a new minimaslitic kitchen. With great respect for the traditionally old timberframed construction of the building, wood and bricks have been exposed and preserved in a respectful way and makes the apartment a unique experience.
The whole apartment will be at your diposal.
A decent sized clean bathroom and a well equipped openspaced kitchen. Central dining area, cozy living room and 2 bedrooms. On top of all this, there's a beautifull green, lush and very kids-friendly backyard at your full disposal.
At most comfortable, the apartment is suited for 2 couples and a child, one couple in the King-size doublebed (160cm wide) and the other in the medium sized double bed (110cm wide) and the child in the lifted designer bunkbed! But if you really want, and with the couch and an available fold-out madras taken into use, the place will accommodate 6 adults and a child!
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you, hand over the keys, show you the apartment, make sure you get settled and feel comfortable and then I'll let you be to enjoy your planned time in Copenhagen on your own.
Our cozy, quiet and unique penthouse apartment is located in Vesterbro. A very popular area that is definately one of the most buzzing and divers areas of central Copenhagen, where artists, actors, directors, homeless shelters and familys with kids live next door to each other. Cafés, restaurants and popular shopping are just around the corner and the Copenhagen central square and the famous walking street "Strøget" is just 15 minutes stroll away.
From the international airport in Copenhagen, the apartment is reached within 20 min by public transportation. Cheapest, easiest and fastest by train from the airport to the Central station.
Local busses leave for all over Copenhagen, from just around the corner and the Central Station, from where the airport as mentioned and the rest of the country is easily reached, is just a few minutes walk away.
If you arrive by car, there is plenty of paid parking in the area.
- Our apartment is completely non-smoking
- The apartment has just recently been refurbished and the floors are all new, so we would kindly ask people to leave their shoes outside the door on the staircase, before you enter.
- I expect everyone to respect that this is a private home and therefor to help keep the place nice while you are here and to tidy up after yourself
- We are more than happy to open our doors to everyone and look forward to meeting you, but we don't accept guests that hasn't been presented in the booking conversation.
- Make yourself feel at home and have a great time in Copenhagen :-)
My friend and I stayed a Lars' place for 4 nights. It was just as advertised and shown: a bright, open, "cozy penthouse" that felt like home away from home. Although we never met Lars face-to-face (he was travelling), everything was exactly as he said and he was very reachable by email & phone. Lars is very friendly and left us some snacks and beverages which was a nice touch. Lars kindly left towels and a hair dryer, less for us to pack. We also appreciated the apartment access to Netflicks as we were too tired to go out one night! I would recommend this listing to anyone. A few tips for people considering this apartment: note the penthouse is on the 5th floor (aren't all penthouses up high?!) and it can be a long walk up and down the stairs at times, especially with suitcases. Also, the Vesterbro neighbourhood is "colourful" in that you should be prepared for sex shops next door to great new restaurants. We liked the neighbourhood and found it fun to explore, just be prepared as this is a little different for some. Lars was a friendly, responsive host and the apartment was fun to stay at - would recommend without hesitation.
My family and I had a perfect stay at Lars' apartment. There was everything we needed and even more! Lars is a great host, very kind and always helpful. He paid attention to all our demands. We couldn't ask for more!
Moreover, the apartment is really comfortable, very close to the city centre and well equipped.
It was great experience to stay Lar's cozy house. It is just same as picture and moreover there is a lovely room for kid. I traveled with 5 year old daughter, she loved the room with bunker bed and toys. Thanks to Lars for his kindness and welcoming. It was the first try to rent an apartment rather than hotel, so i little worried and nervous before but it was great experience for all my family after. Only one I did not expect is no elevator and it was 5th floor. It was very hard for us. But except it everything was good. There is a big play ground near by his apartment it makes my daughter happier. Many thanks Lars!!
I will leave it in Korean also for potential Korean guest;
5살 아이와 함께 세가족 여행 시 이곳 Lar's 아파트를 빌렸습니다. 처음으로 에어비엔비를 통해 아파트를 빌리는 것이라 걱정도 되긴했는데 결과적으로 우리 가족 모두 만족스런 여행이 되었습니다. 한가지 힘들었던점은 꼭대기 층 (여기선 5층이지만 한국으로 치면 6층) 인데 엘리베이터가 없어서 짐들고 올라가는게 힘들었지만, 그걸 제외하면 모든게 좋았습니다. 특히 그곳에 Lars 의 딸 방이 있었는데 벙커 침대에 장난감까지..우리 딸이 너무 좋아했습니다. 또하나 집근처에 커다란 놀이터가 있는데 우리 아이가 그것 때문에 그곳에 살고 싶어했습니다. Lars 덕분에 좋은여행를 하게 되었습니다.

Lars has been a very friendly host. He was flexible to receive us quite early and has even prepared us a nice homemade breakfast. The apartment is very central and a few minuts away from the Central Station. It is very design, clean and well provisioned. 2 bedrooms, a large living room and a very cozy TV room. Our twins loved the place with a big kids garden just in front !!!
We greatly enjoyed Copenhagen, and moving with bicycle is a must. Rental shop only 300m from the flat.
- appartment is good located
- blue parkzone in front of the house not very expansive
- shops, bars, grills in the near surrounding
- appartment have every utility you need for a weekend (music, apple tv, things for cooking, dish washer, etc.)
Lived in Lars' place for four nights was a good experience. The room is cozy and the flat is comfortable as well. Really enjoy the nature light comes from the window. Lars is easy going and we feel like being at home. The location is very close to station and you can explore a lot just around the neighbourhood. If I come back to Copenhagen I would love to stay here again, thanks Lars!

About the Host, Lars
I am an architect from Copenhagen, and I live with my 4 year old daughter in central Copenhagen. We love to travel, love to see the world, new places and to meet new and interesting people. Maybe that's you!?
When we are at home, we miss al the different exiting cultures and people of the world, so we are looking for interesting and openminded people that would come to visit us and enrich our lives! Maybe that's you!?
And when we do fly to distant places, we really don't like that our lovely apartment is left unused and abadoned when we are not there. So we are looking for caring and nice people that would love to take good care of our place, and most importantly, enjoy it as much as we do, while we are away. Maybe that's you!?
Anyway, looking forward to getting to know you! :-)
