About our home

We live in a cozy, one-story house from 2007 (135 square meters) with a private garden. The house is located in a quiet residential area of Knivsta called “Alsike” – which is located 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. 5 minutes walking distance to closest supermarket and bus stop. Very well connected by public transport, as we live in a residential area where almost everybody works in Stockholm or Uppsala. You can manage without a car, if you prefer!
The space
Our house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and sleeps 4-5 persons depending on the travel party.***

Bedroom 1: King-size double bed and a small en suite shower room
Bedroom 2: Loft bed (not suitable for kids under the age of 6)
Bedroom 3: Single bed
Large family bathroom with shower and bathtub
Fully equipped open space kitchen, dining room and living room with fireplace and high ceiling. Large windows overlooking the garden and the woods - very peaceful.
Washing room/ utility room equipped with washing machine and dryer.

***We do have a guest room in the garden that can accommodate further 1-2 adults or can be used as a workspace, that we sometimes can include in the swap if discussed beforehand.

The Garden
Large private garden surrounded by woods. In the summer, you can pick your own blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries and in August and September, you might be lucky enough to find chanterelles and porcini mushrooms
Large patio/ deck (40 square meters) with BBQ (Weber gas barbeque and a charcoal grill) 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.

  1. We are a married couple with two daughters, Hanna (5) and Clara (11). Veronica (40) works as an administrator at Uppsala University and Lars (43) 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 home swapping since 2017 and are enthusiastic about this way of traveling. We feel that home exchange has opened a door to a completely new world to us.
    We welcome people of all race, color, religion, gender expression, age, national origin and/or sexual orientation.

  3. What we think you will like about our house:
    Peaceful, relaxing location with a vacation house feeling but close to city vibes!

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.
