Welcome to Weysesgade 29, our house for the last seven years. This neighborhood of Town Houses is more than 100 years old and called ‘The Quarters of Composers' since all the streets are named after famous Danish composers. It's original build to house three families, one on each floor. That's why you'll notice all the floors look the same, we still have locks inside the house and the bathroom is in the basement. In the old days there was just one toilet in the backyard for all to share, but we've skipped that. It's a very social neighborhood, kids are playing in the streets and people greet each other and chit chat across the fences. When the weather is nice the beach is just minutes away and it's a perfect gateway both to the city and the many things to see outside of the city. We hope you'll enjoy your stay!
The house is yours to use! However we expect you respect not using our clothes as well as both loft and backroom in basement are private storage and thus off limit to guests.
Bed linen and towels
All bed linen and towels you'll find are for guests only.
Using the bath is perhaps the only ‘tricky' part about living here. The tub is connected to a water pump that needs to be turned on every time you use it – the switch is located above the washing machine on the left. You'll hear the pump start and simply turn it off once you're done showering. IF by any change the pump won't work, it is pretty easy to fix:
1)Open the soap drawer on the washing machine. On the back side of the front panel you'll find an orange stick.
2)Use the stick to gently open the tile top of water pump, located just in front of the tub. It's a bit heavy but no problem to remove.
3)The pump has a loose, green box connected to the top that needs to be upside down in order for the pump to work. It is most likely facing down, that's why the pump is not working. Turn it up and make it stay by 'locking' it between pump and walls. This should do the trick, test the pump and close the lit.
The shampoo, conditioner and body wash on the table is for you to use and for guests only.
Ventilation of the room is easy, simply open the window.
Once turned on the lights in the stairway will automatically switch off after a couple of minutes.
It is located in kitchen. You can also play music this way.
TV and gaming
You'll need to switch on both remote controls to control the TV: the box beneath the TV needs to show the clock before you start using it to switch between channels. We do not have cable but you'll find several local networks as well as a children channel.
You'll find a Playstation beneath the TV and games in the right drawer.
Toys and books
You're welcome to use both toys and books respectfully.
The washing machine is located in the bathroom and is pretty straight forward to use. We do not have a tumble dryer – clothe is to be dried outside on back patio or in front room of basement.
Pls. do not wash sharp knives, tefal pots and pans as well as crystal glass in the dishwasher. You'll find tablets for the dishwasher beneath the sink in the kitchen.
It is located on the back patio. Please make sure to turn off the gas and clean the grill when you're done.
You'll find bakery, grocery store, bank and take-away just minutes walking distance away on Østerbrogade.
