The house was built in 2008, so everything is new. And it has an elevator :-)
If the weather permits, go for a swim right outside the door, take a stroll through the nature reserve, head into the city or out into the archipelago – this apartment is a rare combination of the best Stockholm has to offer: The closeness to nature and the sights of the city.
The bus ride into the city is only 12 minutes (to Slussen), or you can take a stroll and a ferry if you feel like a more scenic ride.

Full access to apartment except for the walk in closet which holds all our personal stuff :-)
Interaction with Guests
We may meet up to welcome you or we leave the keys for you, depending on when you arrive.
But, we will stay away and let you enjoy our apartment!
Expect a wonderful stay in beautiful scenery, less than 15 minutes away from Slussen!
The neighbourhood is friendly, and right by a nature reserve. Many come here to jog, skate, ski, walk, or just hang out. There's a nice shopping centre at walking distance, and a couple of restaurants/cafes nearby.
There's a pretty little old industry refurbished into a nice mall with restaurants, cinema, food stores, good clothing boutiques, and bars.
You can go for a swim right outside the door.
The lake is amazing, but even more amazing is the nature reserve behind it. Go for a nice walk thru the forest to Hellasgården. Or a walk + ferry ride in the sunset into the city.
There's a bus stop just by the apartment, with very frequent traffic. The bus takes you straight to Slussen at Södermalm, just by Gamla stan. You can also walk to a ferry that takes you to the southern part of Södermalm.
Other Things to Note
Enjoy. Have fun. Relax.
No smoking, no pets.
No crazy parties.
No shoes inside.
There is parking outside, if you pay an hourly fee. The apartment does not come with reserved parking.
Once the lake freezes over, you can go skating or skiing, just outside the door. This is unique!
Peter 's appartment is great, everything is there. Great location as well, near a lake and only 7 kilometers from the centre of Stockholm, which can easily be reached by public transport or bike. Peter is a great host. Although we did not meet in person, he sent us all the necessary information by mail before we arrived and he stayed in touch by mobile during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.
Peter was a wonderful host. He was quick and easy to communicate with, and answered any questions promptly during the stay. The neighbourhood was really great and very family friendly. Only about 10mins from the centre of Stockholm, but felt like you were out in the countryside. The lake was really wonderful and just about warm enough to swim in! The apartment itself was beautiful, even nicer than the pictures suggested. We had a really fantastic stay and would certainly book here again when next in Stockholm!
A lovely clean and airy apartment beside the lake. Perfect swimming. Peter's instructions were complete and easy to follow. If you don't need to be in Stockholm Center I highly recommend this apartment.
We've had a great time in Stockholm, and it was due in no small part to our hosts. The apartment is spacious and light, with a large dining room/kitchen, two bedrooms and a wonderful balcony where you can have a meal in the morning or relax after a long day. The kitchen is fully equipped (the spice selection is amazing!). There's a bus stop just outside the house. Bus comes every 5 minutes or so, and it takes about 10 minutes to get to Slussen, so don't let the distance from city center fool you.
And of course there's a beautiful lake right by the house. We stayed there in late August, so it wasn't especially warm, but warm enough so that you can have a swim in the evening. There's a pier near the house itself, and a small beach no more than 150 meters away with picnic tables and floating walkways.
We enjoyed our time here, and if we ever happen to be in Stockholm again, we know where to stay!
The apartment was brilliant from the moment of setting foot in the door. It was clean, tidy, stylish, comfortable and very spacious. It also has an amazing balcony with views down to the water - perfect for a glass of wine as the sun sets! There is lots of space for walks nearby. Public transport was really close too which made access into the city straight forward and easy. Additionally, our host had left some supplies for us on arrival, ready made beds and plenty of towels which was a lovely, homely touch. We loved the flat and would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.
The apartment is bright, welcoming and ideally located, a few steps by a bus stop that lead you to the city centre in about 10 minutes. The balcony is a real plus, where we could relax and enjoy the view every evening. The lake and the surroundings were great and exactly fit what you can expect about Swedish nature.
Peter was extremely friendly and helpful. He found a baby bed when we asked.
Every time we had a question, not only Peter answered quickly but he also gave us every useful information that made our stay in Stockholm even better.
what a nice appartement! just missed a small private boat.... our typical day was going to the city with "emilie" (ferryboat, 20 minutes by foot), exploring the nacka nature reserve just opposite the lake and doing a jogging in the evening or just a swim at sickla strand with our daughter. a perfect place to visit stockholm AND relax in nature. we felt at home from the first day on.

About the Host, Peter
Easy going and pragmatic when it comes to living arrangements. Once shared a single room with two friends and a cat, without a single cat fight along the way.
Always eager to explore new parts of the world, experience more, have more ideas questioned and find even more new ones. I have a few sailing stories to share, taking place in areas ranging from the north pole to Trinidad.
Run a company doing consultancy work in the field of digital services and business development. Hope to somehow change the world for the better.
