About our home

NOTE: The pictures were taken at night which don´t show the light, airy and bright feeling of the place ....hopefully I can get around to fotos in daylight too! :)

My apartment is centrally located, yet in a very quiet area, with a 15 minute walk to the train station where you can catch a 45 minute train to Stockholm. The apartment is airy and bright with a harmonious feel about it. It is in a nice area next to a very large park with tall trees and large grass areas perfect for picnics. There is a tennis court and a playground as well. My apartment is on the second floor with a balcony facing west with lots of sun.

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a single bed and the other with a double or single (it can be made into both) I have a small cozy kitchen with dishwasher, freezer,fridge and microwave. The dining area and livingoom area all one big open area. The balcony door opens from the livingroom/dining area.

The bathroom has a nice sized bath with a shower. It is fairly newly renovated with tiled walls and floors from 2006. Fresh and well functioning.

You would have use of our bikes...3 adult size and one slightly smaller from my daughter who is 12. But you can also walk into the town center in 15 minutes and the buses are very convienient and run often and all over the city and outlying areas.

We have a TV, playstation, and highspeed broadband internet, a desktop computer and a laptop and wireless connection. We have a landline telephone and cell phones work great here.

We have a very nice laundry room on the first floor which is easy to use.

Where is it?


Uppsala is a quaint but upbeat university town. You can walk, ride a bike, take the bus or train everywhere you need to go. The neighborhood is quiet. There is a lush, green park next to us which gives space for picnics and romping grounds for kids, and quiet safe walks for anyone. There are young families, retired couples, single students, older single people living in our area. One can take a nice walk to the town center where there is a large variety of good restaurants of all kinds, live music of all kinds, museums and fun shopping. There is a popluar adventure swimming pool with spa and restaurant within a 10 minute bike ride or you can walk! Uppsala has beautiful natural surroundings with lakes and forest, hiking, swimming, camping etc. We have bikes you can use. There is an excellent food store within a 15 minute walk.
