Upscale neighbourhood close to everything Copenhagen has to offer. Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark with a population of more than 1.000.000 and the city has been voted the 'most liveable city in the world' by the English lifestyle magazine Monocle. For the second time. Copenhagen has everything you can expect from a capital - tons of activities, sports events, great shopping, lots of old and modern museums, live music events every day all year round, Royal and underground theatres, a great zoo - the list goes on. And don't miss the surrounding beaches, Tivoli, The Little Mermaid, Kronborg at Elsinore (where the story of Hamlet took place) and a stroll along Nyhavn (New Haven). Take a break from it all in one of the many green parks spread across the city. Lend one of our 5 bikes and see the city from a different angle (Copenhagen is a bikers' heaven with cycle tracks covering most of the city). If you fancy visiting Sweden Malmoe is only 35 minutes away. Malmoe is the 3rd largest city in Sweden with a population of 250.000. It has a large variety of shopping opportunities not to mention a lot of good restaurants, cafés, parks and museums. Especially the old part of the city centre (around Little Town Square) is attractive with many half-timbered houses and cobbled streets. This area is also packed with cafés and restaurants and is always full of life and outside dining - perfect for people watching and a good cup of coffee.
Our renovated house of 320 m2 consists of a large living room with entrance to the ensuite kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has microwave, dishwasher, gas cooker, oven and all the equipment you'll need in a kitchen. From the kitchen you have a wonderful view over the new wood terrace and our large, sunny garden with plenty of flora. You can enter the garden from the living room. The hallway leads to the kitchen, living room, bathroom, dressing room, the dog's room (that can easily be converted into a bedroom with a nice mattress) and our oldest daughter's bedroom (with plenty of books, creative DIY and toys). We have recently renovated the first floor with two new light and airy bedrooms. One room is our youngest daughter's bedroom with a queen size bed (and two junior mattresses), the second one is the master bedroom. 28 sqm with new elevation beds and a wall of travel books, literature and photo books, many of which are in English if you wish to sit back and read for a while. If you come in the spring, summertime or early autumn, you can throw some meat on the gas grill or Weber and enjoy the secluded, sunny garden, where we also have toys, play pools and a huge hammock. Did we mention the trampoline? It's a huge success for both children and adults :-)
Unfortunately our house is not very wheelchair friendly as you'll have to walk stairs both to enter and to get to the master bedroom.
We are very respectful of other people's property and treat your home like our own. Our house is relatively child-proof and families with children of any age are more than welcome - but bear in mind that the house is renovated. We like to keep it that way. Unfortunately we had a very bad experience one summer with homeexchangers who didn't respect our property nor cleaned after themselves. To avoid confusion - if we swap I expect you to leave the house in same condition as it was once you arrived.
Cosy house in Wonderful Copenhagen in a well-off neighbourhood in Vanløse, close to everything Copenhagen has to offer. The neighbours are extremely friendly and will definitely help with any questions you might have. There are city busses 5 minutes walk from the house that go to the center of Copenhagen. The house is just a few minutes walk from a local park and close to a well visited lake-area and with easy access to public transport, supermarkets, cinema, shops and cafes/restaurants, fitness center, shopping mall.
The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and with easy access to busses, S-train and Metro, that will take you anywhere - from Central Copenhagen to other parts of Zealand or even Sweden in just 30-45 minutes.
