About This Listing
Fancy a dip in the harbor before breakfast, a delicious bakery next door and ten minutes by foot to the centre of Copenhagen. This is the place to stay.
126 sqm cosy and spacious apartment in the heart of lovely Islands Brygge. Skip the modern area - this flat is based in a charming building dating back to the beginning of the century - with bay windows and a prime location.

Sara's apartment is even nicer than the photos. If you plan to stay with kids as we did (our two children are 2 and 7 years old), you'll find a lovely play room, a cot, children seats, and a very convenient kitchen for cooking and eating together.
Sara and Niels' children even left us a welcome note inviting us to play with their toys.
The neighborhood is nice and about 5min bus trip from the city center. It's also about 10 minutes walk (with children :)) to the metro.
There's a good bakery just on the corner where you can buy fresh sour-dough bread every morning.
We didn't have the chance to meet but Sara was very helpful on the phone and we found everything we needed.
In short, warmly recommended.
We loved Sara and Niels' apartment. It's location is great, it has all the stuff you need if travelling with a toddler and it's beautiful. We're going to go home and remodel our house on it!
We had a fantastic time staying at Sara and Niels apartment. The apartment was really great for kids with lots of toys, our 2 boys felt at home right away as soon as they stepped into the playroom! It was a very spacious and comfortable apartment and so conveniently located with the metro at short walking distance and lots of shops/supermarket nearby......not to mention the wonderful bakery on the corner of the apartment block which we visited daily! Sara and Niels were great hosts, replying to emails very promptly and they left a comprehensive manual for us with details of all local shops/post office/pharmacy/supermarkets etc marked on a map which was a really nice touch. Niels even came back to find us a highchair for our younger child who was too small for the 2 child seats provided.....thanks so much for that, we really appreciated it! We had a great time in copenhagen, it was our first experience of airbnb.....and a very positive one at that....we hope to come back sometime soon!
Sara's apartment is particularly well located, within walking distance of the canal. We moved a lot on foot, the metro is 10 minutes, Tivoli and Christianshavn (and delicious pastry Lagkagehuset) at 20 minutes. Otherwise, you can of course take the bus which stops are also very close.
The apartment is tastefully decorated in a minimalist style. It is very quiet. The kitchen is very well equipped. Our kids especially enjoyed being able to play with the toys of Sara's children. They also loved the playground in the courtyard of the building.
Communication with Sara was simple and effective.
In a word, it is a very nice destination I would recommend, especially for families with children.
We stayed here as a family and had a really nice time in copenhagen. the flat is well situated near to the center and there are markets and coffeeshops nearby.
We slept brilliantly which is partly down to it being away from the main roads and partly as the flat had enough space for us 4 people separating the rooms from each other with decent beds!
About the Host, Sara
Hi, my name is Sara. I look forward to being your host in my favorite part of town - Islands Brygge. Born and raised in Copenhagen I have been around many neighborhoods and have found my oasis. Close to everything, yet very much its own Islands Brygge is a small proud neighborhood with a good mix of generations, professions and personalities. In the summer the harbour front is buzzing with people relaxing and playing - yet a block away everything is peaceful.
I live here with my husband and two kids and combined we know just about every restaurant, park, venue, museum and odd attraction in the city - so ask and we will help you find the great places in Copenhagen. When we are not hanging out here we spend time in our vacation house on the sea (see listing) or travel.
