About our home

We live in the two-floor terraced family house (100m2) in a quiet and friendly neighboorhood located approx 3 km from the city center. of Uppsala. The place is located close to large green recreational area and the picturesque surroundings of Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala), one of the most important Viking sites in the Nordic region. The area is very well connected to the city center by walking paths (30 min), bike tracks (15 min), and direct buses (10 min).

The house is cozy and full of colors. It has spacious and sunny living room, 3 bedrooms, modern kitchen with dining area, and 2 bathrooms. The place is full of light with the morning sun in the kitchen and the afternoon sun in the living room. The house has also a small garden in the back with comfy lounge set, and a patio in the front equipped with basic furniture to enjoy your coffee or dinner outside.

The house, and the neighborhood itself, is very kids-friendly (closed from the traffic) with several small playgrounds in the close area.

The house is also pet-friendly since we live with Mumrik, the most friendly female cat. Mumrik spends most of her time outside, coming in only for food and water. You both will be delighted with her company, but we can also try to find her a temporary home during your stay if you don't want her company.

More about us

  1. We are a couple (Beata, 38 and Lukasz, 39) with two kids: Emilia (9) and Bianka (5) and a black cat Mumrik.

  2. We are both working at the universities in Uppsala and Stockholm.

  3. We both love to travel, explore and we hope for our kids to share our passion. We like active way of spending time (preferably in the nature), but some city life with vivid culture and good cousin is also important for us. For past 13 years we have been using hospitality-club, couch surfing and most recently, airbnb, both as a hosts and as a guests. Home swap is an new and exciting idea of traveling we want to test!
