Perfect location for visiting Copenhagen and still have some quiet time in the garden. We live in a nice neibourhood with many sweet and helpful neibours. The house is cosy and newly renovated - the real Scandinavian style and lots of "hygge". Perfect for a large family or perhaps 2 couples traveling together.

The space

The house is a typical two-storied redbrick villa from 1929. We have four bedrooms on the first floor. On the ground floor, there is a large open kitchen/living room and an office (with a sofa bed) with the most beautiful light. There is also a toilet on the ground floor. In the basement, we have a large bathroom with a tub and a shower, a huge dressing room with washing machine/dryer, and an extra bedroom with a sleeping couch. We have another TV and the PlayStation etc. down there. The house is surrounded by a nice garden with lots of flowers and a lawn where the kids play football and - of course - a very large trampolin. We have several patios where you sit in the evening sun and barbeque.

Guest access

The entire house is of course included in the exchange. Mi case es su casa - as we say!


Copenhagen is a lively and clean city with so many attractions and historical sites. Please see: and be inspired!

We live in a suburb to Copenhagen called Rødovre. We live on a quiet street with nice big houses from the 1920s and with very friendly and helpful neighbors. This is a typical suburb with many families with children and the area is perfect for kids. At the end of our street (two minutes’ walk) is a lovely park with a very popular playground and football fields. If you take a left in the park and walk for five minutes, you will reach the Damhus Lake. A stroll around the lake takes about an hour and it is wonderful place to feed the ducks and get some fresh air. On the other side of the lake, you will find another park with two completely new "nature"-playgrounds. There is of course also a nice café where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or an ice cream while watching the Copenhageners walk by. The lake is also a great place to go for a run. From our house, through the park and around the lake and back is about 5 kilometers. If you take the second park it is a 7,5 km run. If you take a right in the park at the end of our street and walk for five minutes, you will reach a shopping center with plenty of supermarkets and convenience stores for your daily shopping, a post office and a bank. The town of Rødovre is a nice suburban community with approx. 35.000 inhabitants. There are two cinemas, a large public swimming pool with several indoor and outdoor pools (see, the Vestskoven-forest, several restaurants and fast food places and Copenhagen's largest shopping center, Rødovre Centrum.

Getting around

Our home is 10-15 minutes from the centre of Copenhagen by car. The bus or the train nearby take you directly into town in 20 minutes. It is easy and relatively inexpensive to take public transportation in Denmark. Previous exchange partner have enjoyed taking the train into town a lot. We are Danes, so of course we have bicycles for all guests. Former exchange partners have loved riding around town or around the lake. You can either ride the bike into the city (30 min. if you are in good shape) or you may bring your bike on the train for free and it is really a fantastic way to see the city. As you will notice there are bicycle lanes everywhere. We live about 20 minutes from the airport by car and we live about 15 minutes by car away from several sandy beaches South and East of Copenhagen. 10 minutes by car or bus from our house is the Copenhagen Zoo which is a fantastic place for the kids to spend a whole day, see: Our house is also conveniently located for accessing the highway-system if you want to take the opportunity to explore other parts of Denmark. From our house, you can cover the island of Zeeland in 2-3 hours. We will leave you a folder of inspiration for your visit with suggestions, directions and good ideas. We will also program our GPS in the car, so you can easily find all the interesting sites and some of the places that we love to visit with our kids.
