About our home

If you want to visit Stockholm AND stay in a house with garden, bbq and no hassle with parking, then Stora Essingen is the best place to stay. On an island INSIDE the city parameters, you bike to the city in 10 minutes (bike paths all the way) or even walk over two bridges with beautiful scenery to Kungshomen in 15 minutes. The walk along Norr Mälarstrand to the city center is one of the nicest you'll come across. The direct bus from our island square takes you directly to all major parts of Stockholm (no need for taxi, driving or subway) and if you just want to chill on our island you have bathrobe distance to our own beach and good jetty to jump from as well as grocery and a few restaurants and cafes. The island also has a gym (membership required) and great jogging tracks along the waters to the west, south, north or east around the quays of Stockholm city.

With this unique proximity to the city, the house is still ok in size, approx 150 square meter on two floors, built 2011 with own garden and parking. Downstairs there are no rooms really as kitchen, dining room and living/TV-room are open. You have a modern, fully equipped kitchen, a large "dining room" with a 10-person dining table and then a fairly small living/TV-room. Upstairs we have a more spacious master bed room and three smaller kids bed rooms. There is one laundry room and two bathrooms.

Our garden is lush, quite small (550 sqm) but still has both large trampoline (with safety net), "box of sand" and some toys for the youngest, a football goal for kids as well as grill and patio where you can enjoy your dinners. Just across the street (10 meters) you have the "mountain" where kids can roam while the parents enjoy views over Stockholm and its waters and next block you have a playground with a "play pool" for the youngest, a kids basketball court, swings etc. You have many opportunities to swim within very short walks.

Where is it?


Beyond our island Stora Essingen you stroll into Stockholm and either rent a kayak or SUP and paddle around the islands. If you prefer land, you move towards Djurgården, Rosendals garden cafe and stroll along the canal, visit world class museums and art galleries. If you prefer the city you a have everything in a bit different modes in the different parts of town, Södermalm, Vasastan or Östermalm, all with its own vibe, but always with great restaurants, cafes and shops.

Beyond Stockholm, you have to go to the archipelago, either wild style, camping on your own island or in a hostel or hotel (book early)

Buzzy restaurants
so much happens so I am simply not up to date. But I'll give some advice and we go from there
Cool bars
There are a lot of cool bars in Stockholm. Roof top bars have become quite common and they both offer awesome chill as well as beautiful views over the waters of Stockholm
Cozy cafés
So many, let us talk about it before you arrive.
Retail therapy
Sofo is fun, Center has everything
Bit of culture
Everywhere, most museums per capita in the world ...as one example
Walks in the park
Stora Essingen (our island), Djurgården and the jogging tracks from Stora Essingen in all directions
Spot of exercise
I can definitely give you advice on this. You got everything, but I recommend running, kayaking or SUPing
