Classic, traditional Södermalm apt from 1912, beautifully updated while retaining lots of charm! Large, art-filled one bedroom w/ tall ceilings, huge windows, hardwood floors, & a kakelugn (Swedish tiled fireplace.)
Close to central Hornstull & it's many bars and restaurants, multiple public transit options, Långholmen park island, Hogalid Church, the location can't be beat.
Our place is great for couples, solo adventurers, & business travelers.
Large, light-filled one bedroom apartment 66 square meters (710 sq/ft) with 3.14m/10ft ceilings and large windows that get gorgeous morning light and then continue to let light in all day. Located on the 3rd floor of our classic building (note: the American 4th floor) with a elevator big enough for three people, or two with suitcases.
Roomy living room has two super comfy retro designer chairs (we each were lucky enough to inherit one from our grandparents) as well as a great sofa big enough to lie down on. Our 100" projector screen retracts when not in use, and is hooked up to a chromecast so that you can stream whatever you would like from your own device (Netflix, Hulu, etc. Note that we don't have cable or any other broadcast ability.) The traditional Swedish kakelugn (tile stove) holds down the room and if you look out the window in the just right spot over the neighborhood rooftops you can catch a "glimpse" of the water ;) Ceiling lights throughout the apartment are on dimmers.
Large bedroom has a new, 160cm (slightly larger than US queen) luxury continental-style mattress/bed from Swedish brand Carpe Diem, with down comforters as needed for the season. Full length and vanity mirrors. Plenty of space for suitcases and we can make sure some hanging space is free for you if requested!
The sunny kitchen was totally remodeled in 2014, and is well equipped, with all basic spices/oils/condiments available for your use. Induction stove, convection oven, full size dishwasher, and fridge and freezer.
Note: We don't have a microwave or an electric coffee maker! We do have a chemex/pourover/aeropress coffee station set up in one corner if you're so inclined (or there are several cafes within a few blocks :)
Glasses/plates/utensils/pots and pans are all easily accessible. The kitchen has a good-sized table that gets great morning light and is a favorite work-from-home spot for both of us. Sound system in the kitchen with chromecast so that you can stream music or podcasts easily from your own device!
There's a washing machine in the bathroom (operating instructions will be left with it!) with a drying rack you can set up as needed. European style wet-room shower with drain in the floor and a curtain to pull around the "shower corner" (note: it's small, but is indeed a full shower, not a "Stockholm shower"!) body wash and hand soap provided.
The apartment is entirely pet free (Einar is allergic.)
Clean towels and sheets included! Swimming towels can be included as requested (we're right next to Långholmen, the park island which boasts some of the best swimming spots in town when the weather is nice.)
Zugang für Gäste
You'll have access to the whole apartment (minus one closet), as we only rent when we're out of town.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We rent when we're out of town, but our (also great English & Swedish speaking) family and many close friends are local so you'll always have a point person who's a quick phone call away! We're also of course very happy to answer questions via texts, emails, and calls at all times!
We love living in Stockholm and love sharing it with people - we have a list of our favorite restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and site seeing attractions that we've put together for friends and would also love to share with our guests! We're very happy to chat with you ahead of time and try to help with any specific recommendations that you might be looking for. We both speak truly fluent English (Elizabeth is American.)
Weitere wichtige Infos
Like the vast majority of Swedish homes, we have a STRICT no shoe policy inside! There's a bench just inside the door so that you can sit to take yours on and off :)
This is our home and where we live full time (when we're not traveling), not a professional rental apartment. We expect and appreciate everyone treating it as such! Please do normal pick up after yourselves (putting dishes in the dishwasher, wiping off the counters, wiping up spills quickly, etc) and let us know if there are any problems or accidental breakages, etc. We love our place and think that you will too!
