About our home

Have your cake and eat it! Space, comfort and cosiness, close to city centre. This house is ideal for a large family visiting Stockholm. Family comforts (laundry room, garden, opposite a playground), just 7 mins walk to train with 12 mins ride to Stockholm central station.

The space
1920's charming wooden house with all the modern comforts a large family could need. The house is surrounded by a large garden and across the road from a park with swings, slides, paddling pool, and even pigs and sheep in a local farm school. The perfect base to visit Stockholm with a short journey to the centre of town during the day and the calm and cosiness of a house and garden in the mornings and evenings.

Guest access:
Use the whole house including the 4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, laundry room, kitchen etc... You can even use the playhouse in the garden! Even have a guest house with a bunkbed and barbecue.

Interaction with guests:
We will not be present but will be available before and during the stay on the phone and skype to make the stay as comfortable as possible.

Other things to note:
We will provide you with maps, guides and tips on local food and shops.
