“We stayed in that amazing flat for Christmas and we had a fantastic time. The flat has a quick access to the underground, only three stations to the hearth of the city. You can also discover Sofo, just walking, which is an amazing district. The apartment is fantastic, with all the required facilities and their owners are really kind. Thanks guys for our best Christmas ever. We won't forget it. Jordi, Ruth, Lula & Berta.”
Kettil's reviewsAs a host (3)
“By Romana from Silba, Croatia. I’ve exchanged my beach house at Silba island, Croatia for the city center apartment in Stockholm. We spent one week end of July home at Kettil and Yara place. Everything was perfect!!!!! We felt at Kettil and Yara place as home, the flat is very nice and well equipped, very close to city center. Stockholm is beautiful. Kettil and Yara left us a lot of suggestion of places to visit, and when we arrived they was a bottle of wine for welcome, too. Thank you very much for sharing your place with us, we have really enjoyed since the first moment. Great experience! Romana & Vesna”
“Nous avons passé 12 jours très agréable chez Kettil. L'appartement est bien équipé,agréable et très calme. Il est particulièrement bien situé. Nous partions toute la journée en vélo et avons pu effectuer toutes les visites sans utiliser une seule fois les transports en commun...un vrai bonheur. Il est même possible d'embarquer les vélos sur les bateaux pour aller d'île en île. Des vacances réussies. Merci”
Where is it?
The centre of Stockholm is built on a number of islands connected by bridges so there is water “everywhere”, also in the inner city. Our island is called “Södermalm” and have around 100 000 citizens, if u follow the coastline by foot or bike it is 11 000 meters to get around.
Our house is built 1910 and we live on the 2nd floor of five. Our street is nice and quiet with a small wooden church 100 meters away. There is a grocery shop just outside the house and a decent pizzaplace. Five minutes away you will find many great coffeplaces (where u should drink ecological coffee and do ur status update on facebook) restaurants and bars and cool fashion, design and vintage boutiqes, farmers market/big grocery store, etc...
Its easy to bike around. We probably have two bikes you can borrow. Or there are citybikes in cycle stands all over town that you borrow for 3-4 hours and leave at any other stand, its like Euro 30 for whole summer and Euro 15 for 3 days. Stockholm is a bikefriendly town, the streets with heavy traffic normally have separate lanes for bikes.
In the wintertime Stockholm it is often snowy. The days are short, sun is up between 09-16. Swedes have holliday from around 22 december and for 2 weeks, then there is a lot to do in Stockholm. Outdoor life in winter: you can ice skate in the archipelago (last picture) and often you can walk on the ice between the islands in the city, which is fun and relaxing. Or you can take a walk to the nearest café and take a glögg (warm wine with sugar and spices).
WEATHER IN STOCKHOLM
If you arrive in the summertime (mid june-end of august) weather is nice and less hot then south of Europe (like late spring in South Europe). If its cloudy and rainy it can be around 15C, but its mostly sunny and between 20C and 30C. The nights are short in the summertime. Its dark around six hours, the sun arrives at around 4 in the morning.
In the winter, november-march, its around zero degrees or a bit below, sometimes snow, sometimes not.
IF YOU HAVE KIDS
There is a big playground for kids 500 meters away and the closest beach – which is mainly for kids – is 1500m away. You find a larger beach 3000 meters away (on an island in the centre of town, “Långholmen”). Other beaches can be reached with public transports. 500 meters away there is a public bath with both indoor and outdoor pools for kids and grownups.
The amusement park ( http://www.gronalund.com/en/ ) and the zoo ( http://www.skansen.se/en/ ) is 30 minutes away on an island just outside old town. Also, Junibacken (Astridlindgrenland) is very popular: http://www.junibacken.se/lang/english
