This is a unique house, near a beatiful lake (150 m), renovated with a country style but very close to all facilities (grocery, restaurants) and near Stockholm City!
Kitchen, dining room, living room and “glass veranda” in a suite makes it very spacious and comfortable. A veranda on each side of the house. We usually have lunch and dinner on these verandas. There is a large Weber barbecue, charcoal is included. The house is located in a very quiet cosy street, almost surrounded by trees. It’s only 150m to Lake Långsjön which offers beautiful walks (one hour round the lake, often on the shore) or jogging (25 minutes). On the other side of Långsjön, 2 km away, is the sandy public beach Långsjöbadet. Next to the house passes a small creek which connects Långsjön with Lake Mälaren. On the other side of the creek (using our bridge) there is a small forest patch/marshland. There are large natural forests (nature reserves) on 5 minutes walking distance.
A grocery store with all kinds of food is only 400m away, open 9-21. The bus stop is 200m, the bus 703 or 704 takes 7 minutes to Fruängen Metro/subway station from which it takes 11 minutes to Stockholm city/Hornstull. In reality with waiting time 25-30 minutes to city/Hornstull. Add 8 minutes to Stockholm Central station. You can take the bus 703 or 710 the opposite direction to Stuvsta commuting train station (8 minutes), from there it takes 13 minutes to Stockholm Central Station. All in all 25 minutes from Skrakvägen to Stockholm Central station, ideal if you arrive to Stockholm by train. By car 12 minutes to Stockholm/Hornstull.
The biggest shopping centre in Sweden (Kungens kurva) is 8 minutes south with car or 10 minutes with bus or bike. There are several restaurants within a km. We usually bike everywhere, you can borrow our bikes for free. If you drive, there is room for two cars just outside the house.
The house has 5 good bedrooms with room for 8 people (or 9 if you can sleep two in the Queen size 120 cm bed). However we charge extra 100 SEK per person if you are more than 2 persons.
In the garden there is a large inflatable pool, 110 cm deep and 5 meters in diameter. To warm it up to 29 degrees is expensive, therefore we charge 100 SEK extra per day for the pool. If you want to pay for this you also need to clean it by running the sand filter backwards after each day of use. If so, we will give you further instructions.
Interaction with guests
We are service-minded. You are always welcome to contact us if you have any questions before or during your stay. We will do our best to answer any inquiries within 1-2 hours on sms or phone, or 1-2 days on e-mail. We will provide you with written instructions to laundry, washing machine etc. on arrival.
Other things to note
We have a small dog which is low-allergic (Bichon Frisé). Some people are allergic to this dog type and some are not. Many of our friends are allergic so we do not accept dogs or cats in the house.
We do not accept smoking or partying in the house. Dogs or cats are not allowed. Please treat our home with respect and carefulness as if it was your own. We hope you will enjoy your stay!
I live a few km south of Stockholm near a nice lake with my wife and 4 kids. I am 52 years old and the kids are from 19 to 8 years old. We have a swimming pool and enjoy working in the garden. I do research in ecological economics and my wife works as consultant. When we were younger we traveled a lot and are very interested in other cultures. We discovered airbnb in fall 2015 and like to travel in a more personal way. For the summer 2016 we used airbnb and stayed in nice houses in Italy while we rented our own house in Stockholm/Huddinge via airbnb. We all play music and have a piano, drums and guitars in the house. We bike a lot in Stockholm and like walking in the forests nearby (picking blueberries) or around our beautiful lake, it takes one hour walk or 25 minutes jogging.
