About our home

A very cosy apartment on the ground floor, 42 m2, with two rooms, kitchen and bathroom with a bath tub. We have a huge bed for two and a sofa to sleep on, if you are more than two that travels. This is our first own home, and have'nt lived here for too long yet, but we really like it here! It's amazing.


More about us

  1. We are Helena & Fredrik, 20 and 21 years old. Helena works as a cashier in a hardware store and Fredrik is a glazier. We have a fish named Napoleon and we also let homeless cats (one at the time) live here while they're looking for a new home. We only accept friendly cats, so don't be afraid... If you don't like cats, we can easily solve that problem. We love travelling! That's our biggest interest we have in common, and we like to go anywhere!

Where is it?


Vaxholm is one of the 24,000 islands in Sweden's Archipelago, and one of about 150 that are inhabited year-round. Vaxholm is in the inner archipelago, about 45 minutes east by boat, from downtown Stockholm. Vaxholm has about 9,000 year-round residents, which grows to 20,000 in the summer, evidenced by the quaint summer homes that dot the landscape of the island (and every island in the archipelago). Vaxholm is considered to be a gateway to the archipelago from the mainland, and a popular meeting place for archipelago residents to meet and pick up visitors. As such, it is a popular tourist destination in the summer. The island of Vaxholm has a bustling harbor, lots of fishing, and its own fortress/museum. They also have old wooden houses (characteristic of the archipelago), shops, cafes, arts and crafts at the marketplace on the quay, and more. There is also a tourist information center on the quay, where you can get information, or buy boat tickets. To get to Vaxholm from downtown Stockholm, there are many scheduled boats from Stockholm to Vaxholm (and other major islands). I recommend Cinderella Boats, and their large, fast boats with a smooth ride. You can ride on the upper deck and have a great time watching the sea and the sun, and the land and seascapes of the archipelago. Boats leave Stockholm from downtown outside the Grand Hotel, near the Kungstradgarden subway (Tunnelbana or T-Bana) station. You can also take the bus!
