About our home

Looking for an idyllic property in the most exclusive neighbourhood in Stockholm? Then our gorgeous family home could be just what you’re looking for. Located in the most beautiful area of the city, our stylish architectural dream is a five-minute walk from the city centre and a few steps from the seaside, while the stunning natural delights of Djurgården recreation island are only a five-minute walk in the other direction.

Our spectacular home is situated in a beautiful building dating from 1890. Designed with family-life and socialising in mind, our penthouse was renovated to the highest standards in 2015. With an impressive open-plan living area that enjoys lofty 5.5metre ceiling heights, this 240m2 (2,500ft) space has been decadently decorated and furnished with bespoke furniture throughout, with every last detail considered to make this a truly unique property. From the library and wine cellar to the outdoor terrace, a great deal of thought has gone into making our home feel both cosy and spacious, and luxurious. We have hosted many home swappers over the years, and we hope you will love spending time here as much as we do.

The details of our home:
With four stylish bedrooms and two elegant bathrooms, our home is perfectly equipped for spending time with your family or friends. We have an open-plan kitchen and several cosy areas for relaxing in (such as the living room and library and TV room), plus a lovely outdoor terrace and the glass-fronted mezzanine level, so you can enjoy both fantastic socialising opportunities and find some great nooks for a little ‘quiet’ time.

We are a foodie family who enjoy cooking and trying dishes from around the world, and our kitchen reflects this passion. As such, we have a fully-equipped Gaggenau kitchen with everything from a large steam oven and induction hob through to a sous vide cooker. A separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and drying cabinet will make your life even easier.

The practicalities of staying in our home:
We maintain our home to a really high standard (it’s why so many home swappers have loved staying here over the years!) so if you would like to stay here for either a direct/non-simultaneous or a Points Swap, please note that there is an additional cost of 120 euros for cleaning. Please also note that we prefer swapping properties that are of similar quality to our home.

Where is it?


Our creative home is located in the most beautiful and exclusive neighbourhood in Stockholm. Just a few steps from the seaside, we are also a five-minute walk from the gorgeous Djurgården recreation island which has key attractions such as Vasa Museum and much more. Take a five-minute walk in the other direction and you will reach the city centre, which boasts the best restaurants and great shopping experiences ranging from luxury brands to high street stores.

Buzzy restaurants
The food scene in Stockholm is exceptional. We’d be happy to guide you according to your tastes, as we’re spoilt for choice locally. Just some of the options available are Strandvägen 1, Milles, Riche, Nybrogatan 38, Broms, Elverket, Bar à Vins, and Sturehof.
Cool bars
Stockholm is bursting at the seams with amazing bars! Riche, Fou, Berns, Strandvägen 1, Spybar, and Sturecompagniet are just some of our favourites.
Cozy cafés
If you’re looking for a tasty bite to eat, then you should try Sturekatten, Crème, Blå porten, Saturnus or Skroten café.
Retail therapy
Everything from luxury brands to high street fashion is just a five-minute walk from our home. Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Church’s, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, NK Stockholm, and Sturegallerian are all local, while the exceptional shopping streets of Biblioteksgatan and Drottninggatan are both nearby.
Bit of culture
There’s lots to do here. Djurgården with Vasa Museum, Nordic Museum, amusement park Gröna Lund, Skansen, the Opera house, Dramaten/Theatre, Kulturhuset, The Royal Castle and much more.
Walks in the park
We benefit from an incredible location, just five-minutes from Djurgården. Surrounded by water, this beautiful island is the perfect place for a leisurely walk.
Spot of exercise
Djurgården’s beautiful jogging paths are on our doorstep, and you can also run along the waterside of Stockholm which is also just outside our block.
Day tripping
Take a boat trip to the archipelago. The boats leave from Strandvägen or outside the Royal Castle, which is about 5 minutes away from our home.
