About this listing
I would like to share my beautiful 5 room apartment with travellers coming to Copenhagen. I live alone in the flat. When I rent out room(s) I will sometimes be here and share the flat with my guests. Sometimes I will rent out the whole flat (150 m2), and then leave it entirely to my guests.
The apartment is situated at Østerbro, a central, but yet quiet and green area of (website hidden) is very close to the sea(Øresund) and the port of Copenhagen. It is only a 15 minutes walk to the cruise terminal.Besides there is a nice, small beach and a big park in the neighbourhood.
Apart from that there are many nice shops and big supermarkets plus cafés and restaurants of all different nationalities and price levels.
Bus 1A right across the street takes you to the city centre in 10-15 minutes, and there is a 7 minutes walk to the S- train which is only 5 stops from the central station.
The flat has 5 rooms, a living room and a study ensuite plus 3 bedrooms (2 double, 1 single) 1 bathroom and a kitchen.
The big bay window in the living room, and the three-light- windows in the other rooms fill the whole place with light.
Wifi is available.
Duvets, bedlinen and towels provided.
The atmosphere of my place is one of quietness, comfort and feeling at home.
My overall house rule is that I expect you to treat my home the same way that you would treat your own.
So feel free to use the apartment as you wish and use all equipment available.
Freedom with responsibility and mutual respect is the basis of succeeding in letting strangers into your home and make them feel welcome.
Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in Vivians Wohnung verbracht. Wir hatten zwei Zimmer gebucht und konnten wie vereinbart die Küche und das Bad mit Vivian teilen. Vivian war sehr offen und herzlich und konnte uns hier und da immer wieder ein paar gute Tips für unseren Aufenthalt in Kopenhagen geben.
Vivian war sehr sorgfältig vorbereitet und so erfuhren wir sofort, wie was funktioniert in der Wohnung und wo wir z. B. in der Küche unsere Lebensmittel lagern können. So fühlten wir uns gleich gut willkommen!
Es gab eine gute Überraschung: An einem der beiden Zimmer gibt es einen Balkon, der auf einen schönen, großen, abwechslungsreichen Innenhof schaut, der voller Spielgeräte und -fahrzeuge für Kinder ist. Von der Küche aus gibt es einen superstarken Geheimgang in den Innenhof. Das ist spitze, weil die Kinder im Innenhof spielen können, während die Erwachsenen auf dem Balkon sitzen.
Da die Küche wunderbar ausgestattet war, konnten wir jeden Tag kochen, es ist natürlich alles ein bisschen anders als zu Hause, aber wir fanden uns schnell zurecht.
Wir sind sehr zufrieden und würden uns jederzeit wieder bei Vivian einbuchen.
Vivian helped to make our first experience of both Airbnb and Copenhagen a real pleasure. She was very quick to respond to our initial request and extremely helpful in providing information prior to our trip. The rooms were indeed beautiful and bright - very spacious and clean with hanging and drawer space provided. Since each room contains a double bed and we were travelling with two young boys who are typically best friends and worst enemies, my husband and I had to rethink our conventional sleeping arrangements; this was not a problem in my opinion for the short time that we stayed, however, my husband ended up sharing a bed with the wrigglier of the two boys and may have gone a little shorter on sleep as a result! The apartment is well situated for rapid and easy access to the city centre (a little more than 10 minutes by either bus or train, both of which are within walking distance) and there is no shortage of supermarkets and food outlets in the area. The children voted the nearby Bosse bakery the culinary highlight of their stay and were quite sorry to take their leave of the girl behind the counter on the last day. We were fortunate to be in the city during Winter Break - the February school holiday - when many of the museums and cultural institutions host events for children, so there was no shortage of things to see and do. Again, Vivian was helpful in providing local information and knowledge in addition to the extensive information available on the excellent VisitCopenhagen website. My only regret is that we didn't have enough time to cram even more activities into an already packed programme. Vivian is a warm-hearted host with an open mind and a generous spirit and was quick to make us feel at ease in her home, particularly the children, who had been slightly concerned before our trip at the prospect of living with a stranger. We are very grateful to have had her as a host and are happy to count her among our fond memories of Copenhagen.
My friends and I visited Copenhagen this July. We loved staying at Vivian's flat. Vivian was a great host, responded to our request quickly. Her house was clean and cozy, felt just like home. We used the kitchen everyday to cook breakfasts!Great place to stay!
Vivian has been the most lovely host I've ever met! The kitchen, the rooms, the bathroom .. Everything was perfectly clean and you can see how she furnished every room with lots of love.
The neighborhood is very quiet, so I had a recreative deep sleep in the big bed I had all to myself :)
Vivian was very caring and helpful. I'm sure I'll come back to the beautiful city of Copenhagen someday and I'll ask Vivian for sure if she likes hosting me again :)
Vivian's lovely, spacious and well furnished apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift) of a large residential group of flats, surrounding a central courtyard, with balconies overlooking this open space. The nearest free car parking is several blocks away, so bear that in mind if arriving by car.
A regular, very reliable bus, which takes you into the centre of Copenhagen in about 15 minutes, is just across the road. Walking into the centre, which we did on our 1st morning, would take about 45 mins. There are several nice eating places, supermarkets and shops in close vicinity to the apartment. Vivian, who is a retired languages teacher and who speaks perfect English, is a lovely host. Although she was at home during our stay, the apartment is big enough to not be in each other's way and Vivian remained very discreet, allowing us our own space, whilst being approachable for advice and tips about restaurants, shopping and information about the general way of life in Denmark. We enjoyed sharing the odd glass of wine with her during this lovely stay.
Vivian's apartment was indeed an excellent choice for us, spacious,
comfortable and immaculately clean. We would happily stay with
her again and we do recommend her apartment to others without hesitation.
In every respect Vivian is a perfect host.
