More about us

  1. We are a family of five: Lars(46) and Maria(46), Melvin (12), Maja (8) and Liam (6) and have traveled extensively during our time together and have lived two longer periods abroad, 2008-2009 in Taupo, New Zealand and 2010-2011 in Oxford, England.
    Since 2011 we live in our lovely little house and are therefor looking to house swap in order to be able to continue travel the world.
    Lars is working as program manager at Volvo Car Corporation with the new connected vehicles,
    Maria works at Activity Specialist, an team-building company.
    We are all non-smokers and have always had the best relations to the landlords when renting houses abroad.

Where is it?


Located in a very nice little community on the Almekärr plateau on the edge of the area thus facing the forest within 20 minutes walk to two beautiful lakes where in summer it is possible to swim, fish, windsurf, paddle canoe etc. In winter time you can hike, ski or ice-skate on them.
The forest just outside the house on one side is perfect for walking, mountain biking and catch a glimps of a deer or two and there is horse riding stables not far away.
Located in a safe area and the last bit is car free area, with three playgrounds lituarly outside the yard makes it perfect for a family with kids. But since it comes with garage or just 10 minutes’ walk down to the train-station that takes you in 17 minutes straight in to the big city of Gothenburg it is also suitable for working person/couple as well or anyone who want to have the best of both worlds with outdoor activity as well as the buzzing city life with shopping/clubs etc..

Buzzy restaurants
There are plenty of restaurants in Gothenburg near by, with fantastic sea food, Sjömagasinet or Fiskekrogen are the top ones
Bit of culture
Gothenburg is soon 400 years old with lots of history and a lot of happenings
Walks in the park
There are many excellent forests to walk around in near the house and in the area
Spot of exercise
The fabolous archipelago just outside of Gothenburg with lovely spots for swimming in the sea
Day tripping
Liseberg - A must if you have kids with lots and lots of fun rides
