“We stayed two weeks in Sonder Omme, spent most of the time traveling around Denmark, visiting many places, including nearby sights as well as Arhus, Copenhagen, Legoland and the sea. We liked the house very much. Denmark is very different from our country and it was really interesting. This was our first exchange and it was a great experience for us. On the other hand, we are thankful to our exchange partners for their understanding: although according to the original plans they would have stayed only at our cottage, they came to our Budapest flat as well for a few days, because at the cottage there were some problems with electricity due to a storm. Our partners were very flexible about this which made it much easier for us. We also exchanged cars and it was all fine, too. We found both the apartment and the cottage neat and tidy when we arrived home. We recommend this family very much for exchanges.”
Helle's reviewsAs a host (11)
“We Just came back from 10 days in this beautiful home. The house and the outdoor space are amazing. A great location to visit Legoland, Lalandia, Silkeborg, Ribe and Copenhagen.However the thing that impressed us the most was the hospitality we received from this wonderful family. This was our first exchange and the family made it a positively memorable one. Our house was left impeccably clean and tidy. Denmark is such a beautiful country. Thanks!”
“We've had a wonderful exchange with Helle's family. How couldn't we recommend them for a swap? Their house is located nearly Billund's airport in a small village with everything you will need on holidays (supermarket, gas station). The house is clean, kids friendly and spacious. We loved the inside and the outside was nice with a pleasant garden offering many way to entertain the kids. We get such a nice weather that we ate almost every time on the terrace and went to the beach twice. Thanks to the car swap we could visit the Jutland considering a hour drive to big cities (Aarhus, Sondervig, Vejle, Kolding, Ringkobing…). We also went to Odense which is 1h30 drive from the house. Regarding their stay in our house with 3 boys, we could say the are responsible, very careful and eager to leave the house as they found it. We could not see they stay here. This was a perfect exchange with a very nice family. Thank you so much.”
“In Grinsted near Billund, Denmark we had a very nice family holiday. The house of Helle and Carsten was as we expected, very comfy and cozy and close to legoland. This very friendly family welcomed us in their home before leaving to our house. It’s was a very good idea to have a short ‘rendezvous’ and meet in person. Our kids couldn’t understand each other but played in a universal language. We enjoyed staying in Grinsted and wandering in the neighborhood; Their garden is endless big and we liked making a bonfire. Perfect place for families who wants to experience Denmark.”
“We spent a wonderful fortnight in Denmark at Helle and Carsten's house. 20 minutes from the airport (and Legoland and Lalandia!) - her parents even met us at the airport and showed us the way! The house was large and very well furnished and our children loved the massive garden, the Summer house, the "moon buggies" and the BBQ. We loved the fresh strawberries! The area was great for cycling, as was everywhere we went. We visited the East and West coasts of Jutland, the "lake district", the famous Givskud Zoo and Aarhus, Denmark's 2nd city. We still had a long list of things we wanted to do! This was our 5th house swap and our best to date. Highly recommended.”
“We are very happy with the experience at Helle's house. The house itself is amazing, very comfortable, nice and spacious. All was impeccable clean, and the view of the garden from the living room is lovely. The house is well located near the supermarket and the others shops of the town. It's near the airport, Legoland, Legohouse and a lot of places to visit. We loved our holidays in Danmak, a great and interesting land, so careful with families and children. Helle and family are very attentive and they leave our home and car in perfect condition. Thanks a lot for the experience!!!! ”
“Hemos hecho este verano un intercambio con Helle, Carsten, Nicklas, Simon y Oliver y ha sido una experiencia perfecta. Desde el primer contacto, la comunicación ha sido muy facil y fluida, lo que ha facilitado mucho la preparación del viaje. La casa es maravillosa, con todo lo necesario para poder disfrutar de las vacaciones.Los niños han gozado muchísimo con el campo de futbol, la colchoneta, todos los juguetes, el jardín...y como no...con la conejita Sille!!! Estaba muy limpia y organizada y ellos dejaron la nuestra de la misma manera. Tambíen intercambiamos los coches y todo salió a la perfección. El pueblo, Sdr. Omme, es un pueblo pequeño pero tiene todos los servicios necesarios para el día a día. Está´muy bien ubicado para recorrer Jutlandia, ya que se encuentra en el centro de la península. Está muy cerca de Legoland y Lego House, visitas imprescindibles si vas con niños. Recomendamos este intercambio con Helle y su familia. Serán vuestras vacaciones perfectas!”
“We had a lovely exchange with Helle and Carsten. They have a beautiful house in Sonde Omme in Jutland with a very large garden, backing onto forest and a huge trampoline that the children spent much of their time playing on. Their house was immaculate and well situated. We enjoyed runs and cycle rides in an organised route around the town and down to the local river. Legoland and Lalandia are close by to visit, the latter a great indoor waterpark with pools and flume rides for all ages. The unexpected gem was "Lego House", which has used all Lego's technology to allow children to explore their imagination. Our son loved it and we went twice! A local deep forest art project, the sandy Vejle beach and Kolding children's play park and castle were also enjoyed and so outings were varied with something for all ages. We had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend. ”
“This summer we\'ve enjoyed two great weeks of holiday in the wonderful house of Carsten and Helle. We and our boys loved to stay in such a spacious and cosy home that has everything you need and all you can wish. Many toys inside and also toys and a lot of things to play with in the beautiful, huge garden. You\'ll surely have a holiday feeling when staying in this house and village! We\'ve also enjoyed the very green and calm countryside of Denmark. The West Coast is beautiful and we\'ve visited some nice towns as well. The family is very kind and the contact went very well, all through email. Their house is super clean and tidy and when we came home we found our house in perfect condition! Thanks for everything! Highly recommended!”
“We exchanged with Helle, Carsten and the boys in May to take our grandchildren to Legoland. Our daughter and son in law were there to relax, as were we the grandparents, whilst the children had the greatest of fun with all the toys in and outside of the house. The house was immaculately clean with everything neatly arranged (including the toys!!!) the house was very comfortable and relaxing in a great location to visit Legoland and other local attractions. Not far from the airport was also a bonus. Helle was a pleasure to deal with when arranging the exchange, even leaving 2 cars at the airport for our transfer back to Sonder Omme after our flight times got changed, meaning 6 of us arrived together from 2 different countries at the same time, which was not originally scheduled. We would love to see Helle, Carsten and the boys back in Spain sometime in the future to meet them. Thankyou all for a wonderful holiday.”
“In summer 2012 we made exchange with this family with our kids. The house is perfect for family and the garden a wonderland for kids. Amusement-parks, beach and airport close by. The family took very good care of our home and we can with grate confidence recommend them for a home exchange. Our kids now want to move to Denmark!”
