“We had a wonderful time in Copenhagen. The apartment is 2 stops by train (and then a 10 minute walk) from the airport. The train or metro takes you into the city within 10 minutes. There is a good supermarket just across the road from the apartment and food and wine is a good price. We enjoyed being able to cook in every evening. The apartment is very comfortable, warm and quiet...and very unusual as is this stunning building. Thank you to Solveig, Peter and the girls for enabling us to have a super stay and enjoy our first visit to Denmark.”
Solveig's reviewsAs a host (7)
“Solveig and her husband were great hosts. Communication was easy. And they helped us a lot because we had some car trouble. Thank you so much for the help and sorry for the extra trouble ”
“We had a wonderful trip in Copenhagen, visiting this iconic city while staying in an iconic building - Mountain Dwellings. When thinking about Copenhagen, many people imagine cobbled streets, canals and a picturesque harbour dotted with ever so pretty, multi coloured, higgledy piggledy houses. Of course all that is there but Orestad is a very different Copenhagen, like a futuristic town under development. If it wasn't for home exchange, we may never have stayed or even visited this area. It would have been our loss. Orestad is brilliantly located, a short taxi ride or 1 stop on the train, from the Airport. The apartment is equidistant between 2 metro stations (1 of which is also connected to the overground service that takes you not only to the airport but also to Malmo if you wanted to visit) taking you everywhere you need to go in a very short time. On your doorstep is also a great bus service that stops at Copenhagen zoo, as well as a fully stocked supermarket where you can buy everything you need. There is so much to do in Copenhagen but a word of warning - you may sometimes struggle to leave the apartment:) Mountain Dwellings is an architectural wonder, and just as amazing inside. Its beautifully laid out with an incredible, and very large, terrace where we enjoyed many wonderful moments. Our lego obsessed kids were also very satisfied after finding kilos of the stuff in 'their bedroom'! Finally, Solveig and Peter were great hosts and always on hand to help with any questions. If you get an opportunity to stay in this unique property, take it!”
“From when we picked up the keys from our host's local contact until we took the diagonal elevator back to the ground floor our trip was everything that we had thought it would be. Solveig and her partner were very good in communicating with us leading up to the trip as well as some follow-up details regarding how we swaped even after the trip was complete. Their place is amazing and very well suited for us and out two young kids. Staying in the area we did really felt like we were able to experience the design aspect of Copenhagen we were looking for while still having access by bike or train to the more main stream attractions. We received good tips for food and were very lucky to find a high grade ice cream bar just a block away. This was not our first time in Copenhagen but surely the most memorable.”
“My wife, 4 yr old had a wonderful stay in Solveig‘s beautiful home. Solveig and her husband were wonderful hosts and had excellent communication with us before and during our stay. The condo feels homey and comfortable. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The home is fresh, modern and beautifully designed with lots of natural light and fresh air. The outdoor space was probably the highlight for us as we spent a lot of time there and had meals and drinks in the breeze at the end of the day. Copenhagen city centre is only a short ride away. A metro stop is close by for quick and easy access to the city centre. There is a mall a few blocks away with shopping and food options and a small grocery store is conveniently located across the street from the condo. We definitely recommend this property and we had a wonderful time in Copenhagen which was highlighted by our stay at Solveig's place! ”
“Our hosts Solveig and Peter with their daughters have made us spend one of the best family vacations in years. Their house is cozy, clean, bright, warm and functional, perfect to rest after an intense day in the city of Copenhagen. Their indications about the neighborhoods to visit in Copenhagen and the shops and restaurants were key to enjoy a true Nordic family experience. We highly recommend the house of Solveig and Peter as a perfect option to enjoy as a couple or as a family this fantastic city and this wonderful house.”
“We highly recommend a holiday in Solveigs super home in Copenhagen! A unique building in a happening area, close to the beach, the airport and the aquarium - and city centre. We felt very welcome and enjoyed 10 days, buying a Copenhagen card to see "all" the sites. Perfekt for families, as our small girls swapped beds, toys and bikes and helmets. Couldnt hoped for a better place to stay! And such nice hosts! When we came home again, we couldnt even see that we have had guests while we were away :-) - Perfect!”
