LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION >>
Beautifully decorated mansion flat in an unbeatable location: neighbour to Copenhagen's royal residence, Amalienborg Palace, and within easy walking distance of the Little Mermaid on the harbour front, Copenhagen's downtown pedestrian shopping streets and Nyhavn etc.
THE APARTMENT: PEACEFUL, COMFORTABLE >>
A handsome, perfectly laid out and newly redecorated flat with high ceilings, life in our much-loved home is very much centred around a large kitchen/dining room with an en suite sitting room. The flat has three double bedrooms, a large bathroom with a bath and a separate shower and an office.
The second-floor flat of a site dating back to the 1780s, this historic address was redeveloped as a bourgeois apartment building around 1890.
Like us, you are bound to enjoy the classical stucco ceilings, carved frames, great big windows and doors.
SOMETHING IN THE AIR >>
Although it doesn't get more central than this, the street we live in is the heart of a small exclusive and historic area built in the 1760s that you will appreciate for its tranquil aristocratic atmosphere, museums, auction houses and art galleries.
Enjoy the marching bands that parade past the palace daily, the changing of the guards at noon, the bells of the great Marble church, the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky church and the Catholic cathedral. Bump into the Crown Prince on his bike - for real!
Living here, you feel part of living history. There is something in the air.
DIRECT METRO, 20 MINUTES TO THE AIRPORT >>
It's a five minute walk to Kongens Nytorv Metro station which takes you straight to the airport in less than 20 minutes. Bus stops are a two minute walk from the flat.
As guests in our home there are no house rules per se, except possibly that we don't accept pets and ask you to bear in mind that it's a quiet residential building not suited for party life.
We will meet you on arrival and show you how everything works, from the TV to the shower, though most things should be pretty simple and self-evident.

About the Host, Alexander
Airbnb has been a successful outlet both for renting our house in France and our flat in Copenhagen, as well as for finding accommodation away from home when we have the opportunity to see more of the world.
It’s clearly a brilliant way of meeting and connecting with good and interesting people, and it goes without saying that as house guests we would be as respectful of your home as we hope and expect guests at our homes will be.
Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with my partner Luis (& our cat Gustus), I work as a corporate journalist in the cleantech industry and do some creative writing on the side. Luis is a geographer mapping the seas of Greenland for the Danish government.
Taking our cue from Airbnb's recommendations, the five things we couldn't live without are probably our communication devices, books, music, travel and the people we love.
Favourite book: Lawrence Durrell's The Alexandria Quartet. Favourite travel destination: Uzès, of course.
As Airbnb hosts, we enjoy sharing our own passion for and knowledge of both Uzès & Copenhagen: expect to rent from people who take a keen interest in making sure you enjoy your stay and will like their favourite places as much as they do!
