Lovely house in quiet area near Stockholm City

Welcome to Aspudden! Our home is located close to Stockholm City Centre. We are only 250 meters from underground station Aspudden (only two stops from Södermalm), but still in a cul-de-sac street which makes the area very peaceful. For a family, that wants to combine tourist attractions in Stockholm city, with relaxing and child-friendly hangouts near the house, our home is the perfect place to stay! We are open for suggestions concerning exchanges, but we prefer to exchange with other families with children as we have four of our own!

Our home
The house was originally built in 1939, but has been extended in the 1960s and 1970s. In 2011 we had the lower floor completely refurbished, and the house now has five bedrooms, of which three are in the same floor.
On the entrance floor there is a fully equipped kitchen with seating for 4-5 people, a guest room, a childrens’ play room, bathroom with shower, a living room with TV and lots of seating, and a dining room (seats 10 people if necessary) with doors out to the wooden deck where there is a lounge area, followed by a larger deck with seating for 6-8 people, and a barbecue.
The lower floor has a family room with a sofa and a dvd player/computer, the master bedroom with a queen size bed, two smaller bedrooms (one with a bunk bed and one with a standard bed and a baby cot), a large bathroom with bathtub, washing machine and tumble dryer, and a storage area (for prams, bikes, etc). In the garden we also have a set of swings, a trampoline, and slide. There is also a cherry tree and an apple tree.

For more information about the surroundings, and Stockholm, please look under "neighbourhood".

Our Neighbourhood

 Aspudden

There is a lot to do only in Aspudden, especially if you travel with children. Very popular in the summer is the park Aspuddsparken http://www.aspuddsparken.se/ where there is a petting zoo, play grounds, grass to hang out at, and also a small “play pool” for the smaller children (some 30 cm deep at maximum). The park is at less than 500 meters from our house. There are also other public parks popular with our children (5.5yrs, 3 yrs and 9 mo). We also enjoy the proximity (600 meters) to lake Trekanten http://www.badkartan.se/048878/images/ where there is a small “beach”. Since the lake is small, the water is warm, and the quality is still good (regularly measured by the authorities). It’s a nice place for a picnic! Lake Mälaren is a bit further away (1 km) but worth a visit http://www.badkartan.se/052925/images/ You can jump into the water from the jetty, or hang out on the cliffs or nearby lawns and watch the boats go by.
If you want to take a break – coffee or lunch for example, you can do it in Alfred Nobel’s old factory in Vinterviken http://www.winterviken.se/conference-banqueting-stockholm or in the garden café very close by http://www.vinterviken.com/kafe.html .

In central Aspudden you have a convenience store (ICA Aspudden) with whatever you need when it comes to food etc, and with very generous opening hours (Mon-Fri 7-23, Sat-Sun 8-22), a few restaurants (mainly take-away – Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, pizza, sushi, burgers…), a library, a pharmacy, some cafés etc. This is all at 250-300 meters distance from our house.

Stockholm

Stockholm has a lot to offer, the official tourist site is here http://www.visitstockholm.com/en/ Some highlights are the Vasa museum http://www.vasamuseet.se/en/ (shipwreck from 17th century), Junibacken http://www.junibacken.se/lang/english if you or your children like Astrid Lindgren and her books, Skansen http://www.skansen.se/en/ and Gröna Lund http://www.gronalund.com/en/ Going out in the archipelago with a boat is also almost a must during your stay http://www.visitskargarden.se/en/ !
