About our home

We have a fantastic, historic 4 bedroom apartment located in one of the hot-spots of Södermalm in the center of beautiful Stockholm (a fantastic summer-city!. Our building and apartment is from 1759! We have high ceilings, original wooden floors and two fireplaces... With four smaller bedrooms and a large livingroom/diningroom in the center the apartment is perfect for our family (the four smaller bedrooms can - an might soon be - reconstructed into the two larger bedrooms that the apartment originally had). The kitchen is, of course, fully equipped and functional as is the bathroom with bathtub and all.
Please note that we are now - due to work opportunities - primarily looking to exchange for one full year (Aug 2015 to June 2016) to NYC... It's a once in a lifetime chance to relocate to the best living in Stockholm, Sweden for a year!!! (we might not be able to reply to other exchange propositions)


More about us

  1. I am a senior lecturer at Stockholm University and my children are 15 and 17, plus the 22 year old (not living at home anymore). We are a busy and active family. The kids are all involved in the arts: dance, music and photography and I write (was a journalist before my academic career). I truly enjoy my work as a researcher and lecturer in social anthropology.
    The kids all go to schools in the neighbourhood and have plenty of friends within walking distance. We are all active in sports of different kinds and we all practice them nearby; swimming, running, boxing, soccer, bicycling, gym, iceskating, snowboarding...
    We love to travel and have exchanged homes before - both within Sweden and abroad (eg New York, Barcelona, Paris, Estonia).

Where is it?


We live in one of the best spots of Stockholm. This part, Södermalm, is considered to be the more laid back, bohemian part of the capital. And the charm and ease of Södermalm is concentrated here around Mariatorget. To live up on the hill of beautiful, old and charming mid-18th century townhouses and yet in the middle of the cool and hip is absolutely fantastic! We have everything around the corner - theatres, restaurants, galleries, museums, shopping, gym - and parks, sightseeing, even city beaches! If you come here during winter there are several places to go iceskating within walking distance and there's a great ski slope close by - right here in town! The location and apartment can not be any better.
