About this listing
Central Vesterbro apartment with modern design, huge kitchen area and luxurious bath room. Ideal for co-working 6-8 people around the kitchen table w. 100/100 Mbit WiFi. Also ideal for families with small children (ours are 2 months & 2,5 years old).
Oven is over-size and could probably roast two ducks at once. Obama can go to the basement if he doesn't fit your beliefs.
Our apartment is situated only a 7 minutes walk away from the central station, but still in a nice living area of Copenhagen. The neighborhood, Vesterbro, is lively, trendy with lots of hip vintage shops, cafes, bars, and even Michelin restaurants. However the apartment, only a few minutes away from all the fun, is in a very quiet street where you can sleep sound every night. We have kids ourselves, so we know how important this is - and this is not a rental apartment, this is our own home where we live with our two sons and cat (all three will be out while you are here).
The apartment is especially suitable for families with kids, and babies will find the apartment well equipped for their needs (our sons are 2,5 years and two months old, all their toys and equipment are here). In addition the neighbourhood is known for numerous public playgrounds and park areas.
The place is also optimal for co-working, since Jacob is an internet entrepreneur and will leave most of his equipment here. Not to forget we have 100 Mbit up/down internet.
Kitchen, hall and bathroom was completely restored in 2008 with only the finest of Scandinavian design. A spacious living room, a bedroom and a kids room (can be converted into second bedroom) - these three rooms are kept in traditional Copenhagen style with wooden floors and stucco ceiling. The flat is 110 square meters, equal to around 1180 square feet.
Bathroom features high-end Miele washer, rain shower and towel warmer. The bathroom has also got enough table space to change the diapers of two babies at the same time. Kitchen, hall and bathroom are floor heated so that you can leave your socks off.
The heart of the apartment is the huge kitchen and as we love cooking you'll find all the amenities for making a great meal.
Two TVs can be found, both will connect to your iPhone or Android phone right away as they are operated by Apple TV and (website hidden) Chromecast.
Most of our friends live just nearby our apartment and while you are here, consider them your friends. Use them as tour guides, interpreters, handymen or just.. friends. They will also help you get settled once you arrive, by bringing you the key and showing you around the place. Our neighbors are also quite friendly and all speak English.
We give you access to everything! We try to keep our food stricly organic, so if you take some pasta or flour, we ask that you please replace with a similar organic variety. We are both coffee geeks, so you'll have access to our slow brew equipment and some beans from The Coffee Collective. We always have 8-10 different tea varieties.
Interaction with Guests
We will check you in and out, but other than that this is your place for the stay. We'll be close by, so easily reachable by phone if something comes up.
This is the heart of Vesterbro, you can't get much closer to the Meatpacking District, Carlsberg, Enghave Plads and many other trendy and popular hang-outs.
Many tech start-ups are also very closeby, you can actually see the offices of famous Copenhagen start-up Podio from our bathroom window.
The apartment is located just next to Dybbølsbro S-tog station, a major S-train station connecting you to almost everything. Also major bus lines and the central station is very close.
Take care of our home as if it was your own. You'll have our friends in the area as your reception desk, to help you with anything possible. All of our neighbors know us quite well and will be keen to help you - they all speak English fluently and some of them even Spanish.
Integrated gas stove with five hobs, stereo with iPhone dock (for the music) to the left and iPad docking system (for the recipes) to the right.

I was very happy with my stay at Jacob's, where I stayed 4 days with my two children of 6 and 8. The apartment was spacious and perfect for that purpose, the neighborhood is very cool and the location central for a visit to Copenhagen. Jacob was a very good host, who made me feel comfortable in his home and was available for questions and practical issues.
What can I say? We had a fntstic stay in Jacob and Maries apartment. We were greeted by them both and shown around and they answered any questions we may have had. They made us feel very welcome and relaxed. We were blown away by the guide Jacob had created for us and stuck to the fridge. We were travelling with our 4 yr old son and he created a map showing all the best playgrounds, restarants and things to do with him. We love to eat out and discovered some great new places in Vesterbro. We really loved this neighbourhoods laid back vibe. We have stayed in Norrebro several times which we also love but with a child favoured Vesterbro for sure. It was close to everything, I mean everything, harbour baths, great cafes, meatpacking district, Tivoli, and we loved the playground he recommended, spent many hours there. We felt very at home in the apartment, there was nothing we needed and enjoyed the personal touch. The communication with Jacob was excellent, such quick responses throughout the whole process and we knew he would be there at a drop of a hat if we had a problem, which of course we didn't. The icing on the cake was him offering to take us to the airport, which we gladly accepted. This made our lasting impression of a great week even better. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment ad will stay there again in the future. Thank you Jacob and Marie x
Jacob was a fantastic host, and the apartment was absolutely perfect for the 3 of us who stayed there. It's in a perfect location, walking distance to anything in the city is only about 10-29 minutes, with lots to look at on your way to your destination. Lots of room and enough privacy as well throughout the house. Jacob was always reachable by sms or email which made asking questions about Copenhagen very easy. We would definitely stay here again.
Jacob and Marie welcomed us with freshly baked bread and coffee when we arrived from the airport early in the morning. So sweet! We stayed here for two weeks and really enjoyed being there. The place is really easy to get to and is located in the coolest part of Copenhagen. You have the train station a stones throw away, and really nice cafes and restaurants a few minutes walk away. Though still very quiet (I was worried about being close to trains but didn't hear any at all). It has everything you need and then some. A very nice stay. Thanks guys!
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Thank you Jacob
