Central, big & child-friendly flat

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Halfdansgade, Copenhagen, Capital Region of Denmark 2300, Denmark

The Space

The FLAT:
Our flat is in two levels (124m2 located on the 3rd and 4th floors). There’s no lift but the flat itself is very baby- and child-friendly since our staircase is gated both up- and downstairs. Here's a list of what we have:

Downstairs we have:
1) an entrance hall
2) a spacious family kitchen - fully equipped, incl. two high chairs
3) a living room - fully equipped, incl. lots of toys
- We also have free wi-fi

Upstairs we have:
1) a large bedroom with a double bed (180*200 cm) and a work desk
2) a children's room with a baby cot and a double fold out mattress (150*200 cm)
3) a large bathroom incl. massage shower, floor heating, a baby tub, a changing table etc.
4) a washing machine and tumble dryer
- We always provide clean linen and towels

All in all, we have two double beds which in total sleep 4 adults plus a bed for a baby/toddler. Additionally, the sofa makes a decent single bed (60*200 cm) and we also have a double air bed - so actually we can accommodate up to 7 adults (+ a baby).

The AREA:
Islands Brygge is a very cozy and trendy neighbourhood in the heart of Copenhagen. It used to be an industrial harbour but has now been transformed into one of the most popular areas in Copenhagen.

Our flat is about 400 metres from the waterfront and in the quiet heart of Islands Brygge. Here is a list of some of the things you have surrounding the flat (all within a distance of 600 metres or less):
- the lovely and popular Harbour Baths (search (website hidden) Images for “Islands Brygge Harbour Baths”)
- an asphalt pitch for playing foot- or basketball
- a subterranean parking lot
- a riding school
- two health clubs (gyms)
- a protected park/forest
- a beautiful lake
- a 7-Eleven
- an abundance of small unique shops
- four supermarkets
- lots of bakeries
- lots of cafés
- a few bars
- nice restaurants (incl. good take away)
- several public playgrounds (incl. one right in our inner courtyard)

Furthermore, the area is very well connected to all of Copenhagen through:
- several buses
- the metro (just 250 metres from the flat) - takes you straight into the airport in 20 mins and saves you the expensive taxi-ride
Or if you prefer walking:
- a beautiful 20-minute walk takes you to the wonderful Freetown of Christiania (a must-see)
- a 15-minute walk takes you to the city centre, Tivoli and the central train and bus station

We will provide maps of Copenhagen as well as lots of tourist brochures and a list of our own favourite places to eat, go for a walk etc.

Note: The street view images show construction on our building but that ended about a year ago :)

Looking forward to meeting you!

Best regards,
Malene & Bashir

  • The perfect apartment for small families in a safe and quiet district of Copenhagen, within easy reach of the city centre. It was modern, spacious and comfortable.

    Our hosts were very generous in providing so many amenities for our children to use, such as books, toys and dvd's which made the apartment feel like a home from home.

    We would definitely return!

  • We had a very happy stay in Malene's lovely, modern and super well-equipped flat. It's also in a lovely area with lots of cool cafes, shops and restaurants. Would recommend a stay - especially if you have a little person in your life!

  • In one word : PERFECT.
    We stayed for 3 nights at Malene's and Bashir's place in May and we really enjoyed it. The apartment is located in the quiet area of Islands Brygge, 3 min walk to the tube station and 20 min walk to the city center.
    The place is really nice and convenient as described.
    We were 4 adults and it as perfect for all of us.
    Bashir was there to welcome us and had even prepared sandwiches and bought us biscuits and juice !
    If I have to come back to Copenhagen again, I would definitely stay back at Malene's and Bahir's place.
    I higly recommend.

  • A beautiful flat in a lovely location. All the facilities were great, with the shower the best of the lot. Malene, Bashir and Ayo were very friendly. I would unequivocally recommend staying here.

    May 2013
  • Malene and Bashir's apartment is extremely nice, functional and tidy. They are very nice hosts. That being said, Malene was a bit unforgiving at some minor mistakes i have profusely apologised for and said I left the apartment messy despite me spending 4 hours before my departure cleaning everything (I even scrubbed the toilets and cleaned the windows). So I would definitely advise to go to their place as it is so pleasant and they are nice hosts, but maybe not for more than a week, and especially not if you have kids who could damage something.

  • We (2 couples and a 2 year old) really enjoyed spending New Year’s in Malene’s apartment. It came with all the amenities, was quite cosy, close to shops and supermarkets and about 20 min walk to the city center. The “kids corner” proved to be very handy for our toddler and easily replaced the toys left at home. Parking was possible directly in front of the house and free during weekends and holidays.

    All in all Malene’s apartment is a clear recommendation – best suited for 1 couple + small kid (further guests have to sleep on air bed or couch, respectively).

  • It's an amazing apartment! Cozy, warm, with large windows.
    Very friendly and kind hosts.
    Good location, transport logistic, close to downtown and beautiful waterfront, where you can walk. There are some great grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, children's playground and large urban underground parking. Have been here for a month, I would like to continue living in this apartment)))) Thanx to Malene and Bashir!!!

  • brilliant house and lovely hosts. nice location, too... just a short walk to many great places.

    malene has a nice tourist guide to point you to restaurants and attractions in the different areas of town.

    ...there's a cafe called 'no. 26' around the corner from their home with the best sandwiches and cookies...

About
Both my boyfriend, Bashir, and I have studied English (and history/psychology) at the University of Copenhagen and now teach at adult education centres. We live together with our little son Ayo in our newly renovated 124 m2 two-storey flat in the nice, quiet and central area of Islands Brygge (Copenhagen). We both love Copenhagen but also really looove to travel and have been to many parts of the world. We've just started using airbnb for our own trips abroad and never want to stay at a hotel again - we're BIG fans of getting the local vibe plus we get to pick places with a children's room which is perfect with a little toddler who can't sit still :) So, maybe we'll stay at your place next!
