“My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic home exchange with Elisabeth and Mats this summer. Before we even set foot on Swedish soil, we knew we were in for a treat. During the 10 months leading up to the exchange, we swapped photos and videos of our respective families, homes and hometowns. We felt like we knew each other as soon as we met. Mats and Elisabeth were consummate hosts. We stayed with them for 3 nights before our exchange started and for 2 nights after our exchange came to an end. We had so much fun with them! We have made lifelong friends. Elisabeth and Mats’ apartment is airy, clean, spacious and very comfortable. It was equipped with everything we needed. Their apartment is a quick 10 minute bus ride to downtown Stockholm. It is also a short stroll to Jarla Sjo; a perfect lake to swim in. An extra bonus was the use of their cozy cottage near the Baltic Sea! It is only a 30 minute drive from their apartment. My husband and I went out to their cottage four times during our 3 week stay in Stockholm. It was very relaxing and restful there. In addition to exploring the beautiful city of Stockholm, we also took a road trip north to Dalarna for a few days and a 48 hour trip to Helsinki, Finland on the overnight ferry. I highly recommend Mats and Elisabeth as home exchange partners. They are incredibly generous, friendly and fun-loving people. The country of Sweden is beautiful as are its citizens. I can’t wait to go back. Thank you Elisabeth and Mats for a wonderful exchange! I look forward to returning the favour of hosting you in our home one day.”
Elisabeth's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Elisabeth and Mats went well out of their way to make our home exchange absolutely perfect in every way! Overlapping with them for a few days was an added bonus. Their apartment was ideally located, just steps away from excellent public transportation and 15 minutes from the beautiful city of Stockholm. Their home is spacious, bright, well maintained and very comfortable. In addition, we also enjoyed a few days at their quaint lake house, just a short drive away. Elisabeth is an excellent and enthusiastic communicator and organizer, always willing to offer her assistance to ensure we were well cared for and happy. She took the time to prepare and welcome us and it showed. This was a vacation I did not want to see end. I came away with memories to last a lifetime as well as new friendships. Elisabeth and her family took excellent care of our beach house. We highly recommend Elisabeth for your next exchange! She and Mats are the best.”
Where is it?
We live in an area called Järla Sjö which is located in a closeby suburb to Stockholm called Nacka. The area is very safe and quiet just next to a lake. The lake has clean water and is lovely for swimming in summer time and ice skating in the winter.
Nearby (10 minutes walk) are two shopping centers, Sickla shopping and Forum Nacka.
The apartment is very centrally located in Stockholm and with the local train, it only takes 8 minutes to the Old Town of Stockholm City. Car is not really necessary unless you want to go to our vacation home in Värmdö. You can bike to the center of Stockholm in 30 minutes, bike path all the way. We have nice neighbours who will be happy to help you when needed. Everyone in Sweden speaks English.
