About our home

We have completed three very succesfull swaps so far and are looking forward to new adventures!

If you are interested in coming to Sweden and stay at our house, please get in touch. I will gladly answer any questions that you might have. We would like to swap simultaneously and are bound to school vacations. Shorter breaks (1 week) throughout the year but we are able to make longer trips at Christmas and during the summer.

House and neighborhood

We live in a cozy, one-story house from 2007 (135 square meters) with a large garden. The house is located in a quiet residential area of Knivsta called “Alsike” -right between Stockholm and Uppsala, Uppsala County. It is the last house on a cul-de-sac. Peaceful and private location surrounded by woods in a suburban area. Relax and enjoy the feeling of a vacation home while you stay in our comfortable and well-equipped home after a long day of sightseeing. Close to schools, kindergartens, playgrounds and jogging tracks. The closest bus stop is a 5 min walk from the house. We live only 15 minutes by car from the main airport of Stockholm (Arlanda). Stockholm is a 30 min train ride away, Uppsala 10 minutes. Our location is very well connected by public transport, as we live in a residential area where almost everybody works in Stockholm or Uppsala.

Our house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 4-5 persons. (We also have an extra guest room in another building that can accommodate 1-2 adults that can be included in the swap if needed)
- Bedroom 1: King-size double bed and a small ensuite shower room
- Bedroom 2: Single bed that can become a double bed (160 cm IKEA Hemnes)
- Bedroom 3: Junior bed that can reach normal length if needed (suitable for kids).
- Large family bath room with shower and bathtub
- Dining room/ living room with fire place and fully equipped kitchen: large open space area.
- High ceiling and large windows with peaceful view in to the woods.
- Washing room equipped with washing machine and dryer.
- Large private garden surrounded by woods. Pick your own blueberries for breakfast during summer time or get some mushrooms for dinner!
- Large deck (40 square meters) with BBQ and garden furniture.
Kids will love the proximity to the woods, large trampoline (April-October) and sand box.
- Private parking for 2-3 cars.
- You are welcome to borrow our bikes to discover the surroundings.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need and child friendly - but of course suitable for travelers without kids as well! If you travel with a baby, we can provide a cot and high chair.

More about us

  1. We are a married couple with two daughters, Hanna (4) and Clara (10). Veronica (38) works as an administrator at Uppsala University and Lars (41) is a software architect and works in Stockholm. We love to travel as a family and do it as frequently as we can!

  2. We have been members of this site since 2017 and have so far completed two amazing (!) home swaps: Our first swap was with a Danish family from Copenhagen over New Year’s Eve 2017 and the second one was an extended swap (4 weeks) with a family from Portland, Oregon (USA) in July/August 2018. We could not be happier with our home swap experiences so far!

  3. What we think you will like about our house:
    Peaceful, relaxing location with a vacation house feeling but close to city vibes!
    It´s right between Stockholm and the University town Uppsala. Very close to the Arlanda/Stockholm airport.

    Stockholm Arlanda Airport: 15 min
    Stockholm city center: 40 min
    Uppsala: 20 min
