A beautiful converted loft in Vesterbro, Copenhagen's hippest hood. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars, the water and great public transport. Ideal for couples or young family.
Our flat is a 130m² loft flat, with wooden floors, white walls and all the other obligatory Scandinavian things, rounded off with a nice English touch (this means pointless objects scattered here and there). It can sleep 4 adults, and two children - three if they don't mind sharing.
There are two bedrooms (one adult and one child - the child's room has a small bed, but there is also a cot which will sleep a child up to 20kg), and the yoga room which can be made in to a bedroom with mattress on the floor (please see photos).
It is our home, unlike some of the flats on Airbnb which are only rented out and not lived in, so we expect it to be treated as a home, and not as a hotel. This also means we won't rent out to just anyone - unfortunately this isn't the flat for you if you're a group out to party.
It has a balcony that comes off the kitchen, which gets sun until about 4pm in the summer and when that’s gone, you can just mosey up the stairs to the rooftop terrace which, although shared, is practically private as no one else can be bothered to hike all the way up to the top of the building (there is no lift). The views are spectacular, so spectacular in fact that we held our wedding reception up there. There is a big gas BBQ up there which can be used by anyone in the building, just make sure you clean it after.
It has all the things you’d want; dishwasher, washing machine, gas oven, TV, stereo, wifi (100 mb), Netflix, DVD, etc. We have two baby seats, and all the bits and bobs that go along with a baby - toys, changing area, etc.
Interaction with guests
I like to interact with our guests a lot, whether it be through Airbnb, social networks or text message.
Because the flat is our home, we might ask to become friends on a social network in order to get a better idea of you. This of course depends on how much of an idea you give us in the first place, so please be detailed in your description of who you are :) We're not trying to spy on you, we just want to feel secure in who we rent to.
Other things to note
London and Berlin are just 90 minutes away by plane (and cheap too, what with EasyJet, Norwegian and Air Berlin), and Sweden is just a 30 minute train ride away.
We are 420-friendly.
No smoking indoors! You can go out on the balcony for that. If you have a pet, that's fine, just bear in mind it's 11 flights of stairs and no lift!
