Interaction with Guests
When you arrive I either meet at you at the flat, or you get keys at a shop nearby (open until midnight).
Time for check in and out is to me only a matter of logistics and getting time to clean the flat proberly. If possible, I gladly offer you to arrive earlier and/or to leave luggage on check out and pick up later. But I'm not always able to offer this.
Locals in all ages play ball and hang out at Leifsgade Square, just around the corner.
Across the street Toby's cafe is well attended from 8 morning. And the classic Danish bakery, a true pastry-master, opens at 6.

At the other end of the street is the metro station, the police, and a large protected natural area The Amager Common - rich in good walking and running routes

About the Host, Flemming
I live in Copenhagen, staying parttime in my flat at Islands Brygge, parttime in a nearby area with my girlfriend. We frequently go to Berlin, where we share a flat with friends. I rent out a large, private room when I'm home, and the entire flat when I'm with my girlfriend.
I hold a degree in sociology and study physiotherapy - hoping one day to be able to help minimize back problems and other lifestyle diseases that hamper the quality of life in post-modern societies. In my spare time I run, work out, do yoga and read a lot of books.
