About our home

National-romantic style house from 1927 in upmarket and quiet residential area - 10 minutes from city centre. Four storey house with kitchen, dining and living room on first, 3 spacious bedrooms with double-beds and a spa-bath on second. Two bedrooms in the attic. Two fireplaces. Ca 300 sqm excluding basement with cinema, laundry and storage. Garden with barbecue. Tram stop and easy access to downtown.

At the rear of the garden, there is a public astro turf court, ideal for kids play, basket- or football. In general a safe and kid-friendly environment.

You are more than welcome to our bikes; a ladies bike, a ladies hybrid road bike, 2 male full susp. MTB. The house is but ten minutes transit ride from pumping a 20k grade 3 single-track near the royal castle at Drottningholm. If you are golfers, don't miss out on the top-ranked Royal Drottningholm Golf Club - two full sets of clubs and trolleys await you in the garage. Should you stay with us in the winter, there are two full kits for long distance ice-skating and five more sets of skates..


For additional getaways - why not also stay at our cottage on Ljusterö in the Stockholm archipelago. 1,5 hours drive, including short ferry ride. See separate home posting: "Ljusterö". Newly renovated, open fire, sleeps 6-8 in two separate buildings. Huge decks, spa-tub for five - nice on summer evenings and magic under wintery starry skies. Sandy beach 5 min. walk. Access to small 15ft motorboat with outboard to explore... or .. if you come around in the winter; take a ride on one or two snowmobiles (depending on willingness to start on demand, that is ; )

More about us

  1. A couple in our 50's. Two daughters studying.

  2. Rolf runs his own company as a consultant with main focus on business development within the automotive sector. Kerstin enjoys managing projects for a major bank. 9 years of ex-pat experience from Singapore, Australia and the USA - plus extensive travel does not only mean a lot of fond memories but also a wish to keep up being able to visit and stay in new places; hence the home swap.

  3. We enjoy the outdoors, taking advantage of world-class skating opportunities all around Stockholm during winter and boating, biking during the summer season. We alternate between the house in the city and the cottage on one of the 5000 islands in the Stockholm archipelago. Both houses are available in synched swaps. Spontaneous weekend swaps are also of interest.
