We enjoyed Brigit's home very much and were so very pleased to meet her. She was so helpful - when we arrived at the houseboat, she was there waiting for us with a plethora of information at hand to help us with our stay. We enjoyed visiting Copenhagen very much - even on the rainy days when we just spent the day reading, talking and relaxing in the living room, snuggled in blankets Birgit has thoughtfully provided upstairs and downstairs. There are grocery stores nearby, so cooking was a breeze in the well-appointed kitchen. Thank you, Birgit - we were so comfortable in your home and appreciated your accessibility and all of the maps and information you provided. Our last 6 days stay in Copenhagen were in a hotel (business trip - had to stay with the rest of the team). After just one night in our charm-and-character-deprived small room at Bella Skye Comwell, we really missed "our" houseboat. AND, bonus for us, we really liked Birgit's neighbors down the way. LOVELY and friendly family. We will be back some day!
We just had a great stay in Copenhagen on Birgit's boat. On arrival Birgit is there to meet you and is extremely helpful with information about getting around on public transport from boat. Very peaceful and you can swim if you are brave. My daughter jumped in and enjoyed it after the shock of the cold water. Boat has everything you need but is about 15-20 mins out of centre so if you want to walk straight out into city then will not be for you. We found Copenhagen cards very useful and good value in end as we used them on bus, harbour bus, trains and museums, theme park etc during our stay. Get Birgit to order you a taxi to and from airport as she will direct them to boat.
It has been a very good experience. The boat is well furnished, brighted and you can find there all you need. The surroundings can't be describe as a glamorous zone so the boat is close to the road and in a common harbour. Despite the harbour is not in the centre of the city, it's easy to reach the city centre by bus, harbour bus or bicycle. Brigit has explain us all we need and she has been disponible for any problem.
It was a pity that the weather was not good enough for swimming in the harbour, we hope that next time we can wear the swimsuits !!
We enjoy very much our stay on the Brigit's house boat.
Birgit made us feel very welcome, the neighbourhood was a great mix of urban (ie with loads of public transport connections) and natural, the boat itself was possibly even nicer than I'd expected – it's pretty much like it is in the pictures.
There were 6 of us staying (2 adults, 4 children) and we slept comfortably. We ate out most of the time but the kitchen is efficient, there's a massive fridge, coffee machine and plenty of space.
Birgit met us with maps, coffee and guides to the local area. She made it clear she was available if we needed her (we didn't).
I heartily recommend this place and Birgit.
Birgit was a lovely host and we loved being in the lap of martha her delightful little house boat. The bus was only meters away and we found the water taxis a great pleasure as well. Thanks for a great time.
Birgit is a great host! When we arrived, she provided a lot of useful information, and explained all we needed to know about the houseboat, the area, the public transport and the town. We felt very welcome.
The boat is the perfect place to relax and wind down - spacious and well designed.
The harbour bus nearby takes you directly into the city center, alternatively rent a bike to get to town.
We very much enjoyed our stay on Birgit's houseboat and are looking forward to return some day.
We had a very enjoyable stay in Birgit's lovely home and agree with other reviewers that it is very attractive and spacious although we were surprised to find it is so close to a busy road. It was great to stay in such an unusual place, much more interesting than a hotel. Because of injury we couldn't cycle and felt it would have been much better if we could cycle on the paths into town rather than being so dependent on buses as there aren't many (any?) restaurants near by. Definitely to be recommended as an out of the ordinary option for a stay in Copenhagen.
I´m really sorry that you have not noticed the Guide that is on the front page of my Airbnb profile - in the Guide I have listed numerous places close by - restaurants, cafes etc.
The Guide is also printed and placed in the green Information folder - placed on the table - that I have made for my guests.
