Central 3-bedroom-flat with balcony

Hello!
We would like to offer you the greatest experience in our beautiful Stockholm (rated top ten in the world by Lonely Planet 2012; see http://www.cnngo.com/explorations/escape/lonely-planet-best-cities-travel-2012-716747)! We live in a 3-bedroom apartment in the trendy, central area of Hornstull in central Stockholm, close to the subway (just 5 stops from the central station) that takes you anywhere in Stockholm. Airport buses stop within walking distance from the apartment (Stockholm Arlanda Airport). Car is not included in the exchange; however we can arrange for you to have free public transport travel passes in exchange for a car. Stockholm has the second best public transport system in the world (http://www.adlittle.com/fileadmin/editorial/downloads/fum/T0P11_City_Ranking.png).

The neighbourhood is quiet, but with lots of shops/restaurants just around the corner. There is also a big park nearby (Tantolunden), a big playground (Drakenbergsparken, completely renovated in 2014-15), and the main beach of Stockholm, "Citybadet".

Stockholm is ideal for walking or bicycling! Of course you are free to use our bikes; two for kids and one for adults (two can be arranged). The building is equipped with a modern laundry room with 4 washing machines, a tumble dryer and 2 drying rooms (all free of charge). Iron/ironing board is in the apartment. Internet speed is 100 Mbps (wired).

The apartment (68 sqm) is totally renovated.
The kitchen area has a dining table with 4-6 chairs. It's equipped with a induction cooktop (4 zones), refrigerator/freezer, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher and lots of kitchen utensils. The kitchen area is integrated with the living area, creating a spacious feeling.
Our balcony is facing south with lots of sun (summertime). Due to allergies smoking is not allowed indoors, nor are pets.
The living room includes a comfortable resting chair, a sofa with footstool and a sofa table. It´s equipped with a 55'' Smart TV, with Netflix, HBO and a web browser. Also, a Sony Playstation 4 is available.
The bathroom has a bathtub/shower, and a washing machine/tumble dryer if you prefer doing laundry in the apartment. There is also a bluetooth speaker.

The master bedroom has 2*90 cm beds put together to a kingsize bed (but they can be separated). Both other (kids) bedrooms have a 90*200 cm bed. Extra mattresses can be arranged upon request. The kids rooms are equipped with lots of toys including dolls and a large collection of LEGO.

Because of pet allergies we are not able to exchange homes if you reside pets, or have had pets in the past.

Welcome :-)

Best regards,
Karvel (44), Aksel (10) & Smilla (8)

Stockholm is built across 14 islands and is often called the Venice of the north. Stockholm is situated at the point where the vast lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic sea and was built on this strategic spot in the mid 13th century, enabling the founder to tax merchant vessels going in and out of the lake. 1,3 million people live in the greater Stockholm area. There are plenty of bridges, marinas and locks. The water is so clean that you can drink it and catch salmon in the middle of the city.

The archipelago of Stockholm
With its 24,000 islands, the Stockholm archipelago is totally unique in the world. On the bigger islands you will find restaurants, hotels, youth hostels and country stores. Other islands offer nothing but unspoiled nature and natural harbors. The closest destination is the charming archipelago town Vaxholm. The island of Sandhamn is known for its restaurants and regattas and has several good hotels. All of the major islands can be reached by scheduled commuter boats from central Stockholm.

Our apartment is situated on the island of Södermalm, offering lots of opportunities to eat, drink, shop and enjoy cultural events, as well as walking areas in beautiful surroundings.
