My house, regarded as an oasis in the Stockholm area,
lies in a quiet, cultural-historical area close to nature and water. Lidingö is connected to Stockholm with a bridge and metro. It takes only 20 minutes to reach the centre in Stockholm ( the Stockholm Central ) by bus and metro from my home. If you come by car it takes you 10 minutes to the east part, Östermalm, of Stockholm.
Livingroom, kitchen and separate toilet are on the first floor. On the second floor I have a big sleepingroom with a double bed for two persons with a big balcony to enjoy the evening sun. Also there is a smaller room for one person. An extra bed can be placed in the room if you are four people. Bathroom, shared with me, on the same floor as the sleepingrooms. Sauna and shower in the cellar.
The kitchen is rather big and has room for many people around the round kitchen-table where breakfast will be served. In summertime your breakfast can be served in my nice garden if the weather allows it. WiFi Internet access is available.
In Lidingö you find the famous Millesgarden with beautiful statues made by Carl Milles and interesting exhibitions of art. Close to Millesgarden lies Foresta - a beautiful restaurant with sea view and excellent food. Not far from the bridge you find the big ferryboats which traffic to Finland everyday. It is possible to rent bikes in summer and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
In the centre we have a nice shoppingcenter which can easily be reached either by a walk or by bus. There you also find some good restaurants. Of course I can give you good advise for you visit in Stockholm area.
I live alone since my husband died, but I have company of my dog Sassa, an english springer spaniel, 10 years old. She is very friendly and quiet.
Welcome to visit.
What I especially love about my neighbourhood is that it is so quiet
You take bus 201 to or from Ropsten where the Metro is. The busstop is called Hersby åker. Another bus is 212 and 204, they stop at Kvarnen. It takes about 4 minutes walk to each bus stop.
I had a great time at Ulla's place which is ideally located to visit the city and enjoy the nature on Lidingö Island. You can run miles without having to stop at a traffic light.
After a day of sport and sight seeing, you'll enjoy for sure this quiet home where sleep gets really deep.Even Sasha, Ula's sweet dog does not bark. I have to say I never heard the sound of her voice.
A personal thank you to Ulla for her tips. She knows what's going on in town!
A week Stockholm! It was so much fun to get to know the city through “airbnb” and Ulla provided a wonderful shelter. I started all my daily trips from her place.
With a nice breakfast, the morning newspaper, and many interesting conversations I was able to deepen my knowledge of the Swedish language. I thank Ulla for being patiently and speak with me and for the tips for trips and activities. I was very pleased with all the services and comfort. Thank you very much!
Even though Ulla was a little ill when I arrived, she took care that her daughter would be there, who gave me a really warm welcome and showed me around. Ulla and her daughter (as well as her granddaughter, but since she didn't speak so much English, I can just assume that ;) ) were really nice and helpful, if I wanted to know how to get somewhere or what to visit, I could just ask. Their dogs were quite adorable as well, especially when one of them want's to bring you the newspaper, your slippers or other things.
Breakfast was plenty and a lot of things to choose from, even though I myself are pretty simple concerning breakfast ;).
The place itself is nice and quiet, so you can be sure to get a really good night's sleep.
I can just recommend staying at Ulla's, as long as you are fine with taking about 20-30 Minutes to the city centre by bus and subway, but I can assure you that the Stockholm public transport is really easy to use.
Once again I want to thank Ulla and her daughter for their hospitality. Thanks to them I spent in Stockholm two wonderful days. Great hosts, comfortable light room in a quiet suburb with very convenient and quick access to the city center - it’s traveler’s dream, which has become a reality in the Ulla’s home
My wife and her cousin stayed for a couple of days at Ulla’s Townhouse in Stockholm,Lidingö. They told me: "A very nice, cosy and comfortable home on Lidingö Island and a very picturesque living area in Stockholm. We enjoyed very much Ulla‘s friendliness and hospitality." Klaus
My daughter and myself spent 5 days at Ulla´s place with the intention of exploring Stockholm. We appreciated staying with Ulla very much - she was very friendly and helpful, we had nice chats about a lot of topics. It was calm and pleasant to stay outside Stockholm thus very easy to get into town. Would stay with her again!
Had a comfortable, pleasant stay at Ulla's. She really invited me to feel at home and I did. It was a pleasure to talk with Ulla, a bright intelligent woman. She was also very helpful, showing me the town, offering suggestions on where to go, helping me with laundry--I could go on and on.
The house is charming, with a large yard and a small bay nearby. Walking around the quiet, picturesque area was wonderful, especially after a day in the middle of the city. I recommend staying at Ulla's and dedicating some time to strolling and seeing the island.
OH--and Ulla's dog is very sweet! Go and see for yourself.
I really enjoyed the time in Ulla's house, she is a very nice lady, cares about the guests, smile likes sunshine. :) as well as her family (I met her daughter, granddaughter and their dogs this time), every morning we had breakfast together, happy talking always. I will definitely visit her if I go to Stockholm again. Living there feels like home. :)
My mum visited Stockholm recently and stayed with Ulla. Mum was very happy with the experience and intends to visit Ulla's again in the near future. It is a lovely neighborhood with Harbor, parks and historic buildings nearby. Thanks !
I had a great stay at Ulla's house. Amazing location and lovely place to stay. She made my accommodation really enjoyable, she cooked delicious breakfasts for me, shared many useful tips on where to go and how to save money in the city. And the bed was comfortable. I'd highly recommend to choose Ulla's house for your stay in Stockholm!
