About the property

Sleeps 6, 5 room, lakefront, own dock, 4 km from Stockholm city, in the Eco park

Beautiful house on lake Brunnsviken. The old part of this building is from 1860, and was originally built as a ticket station and café for the steam boat traffic on Brunnsviken. The house was completely renovated in 2006 and in 2011 an extension was built. There is a private small dock and a small rowing boat for your excursions. There are plenty of lovely spots for sitting outside in the garden or on the wooden deck.

The original building contains a living room/ kitchen with dining area and fire place. Great view overlooking the water from the dining table for 8 people. There is also a bathroom with shower and a sitting room with an additional fireplace and a comfortable sofa that folds out to a double bed. From this room the stairs lead down to the new extension. The lower level contains one master bed room, two smaller, rooms, office area, second entrance, laundry room and a serene bathroom of high architectural quality. There is a wooden deck along the two sides of the extension.

Great home in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place, and we would recommend it highly to any couple or small family looking to spend time in Stockholm.

Our family (two adults and two-year old twin boys) spent two weeks here in June 2012, and we loved it. The home is spacious and tastefully decorated with lots of original art. The home is fully stocked with any amenity you might possibly need, including kitchen appliances, wireless, audio-visual equipment, washer/dryer, and so forth. It has two bedrooms, one master bedroom and a smaller bedroom for the owners' young daughter. If you have younger children, like we do, the second bedroom and adjoining play room are a life-saver. Our boys could sleep separately, but they also had a place to go to to read books and play with toys. A great yard, too.

Obviously, one of the most appealing aspects of this property is the location. It's located on the shore of Brunnsviken, which is hands down one of the most delightful places in Stockholm to be. Although the home is out of the city center, it is a short walk or bus ride to the T-Bana, which will take you pretty much anywhere. The convenience of public transportation links cannot be over-emphasized. The bus stop going the direction of the Bergshamra Centrum T-Bana station is literally right outside the front gate of the house, while the bus stop that drops you off from the T-Bana station is 100 yards away. The most direct bus comes every half an hour, so as long as you plan your trip with this in mind, it's a piece of cake -- 4 stops in 5 minutes, and you're there. Then, it's a 10 or 15 minute subway ride wherever you want to go on the red line. Mind you, we were often doing this multiple times a day with two-year old twins and a stroller, and we thought it was easy. I can only imagine how much easier it would have been without young children.

In addition to public transport, there is a Konsum grocery store at the Bergshamra T-Bana station, so getting groceries is easy. There is also a Hemsjop located a short walk away in the other direction. One of the best things about the house, at least for us, was Brunnsviken. This lake has some of the best running in Stockholm. It's a 7.5 mile loop around the lakeshore, which is beautiful and free of people. It's also a beautiful path to walk, since it goes through Hagaparken (the royal municipal park) and is populated with cute cafes.

Also, the owners, Ulrika and Cristoffer, are down to earth and extremely helpful.

Wonderful stay, can we repeat?

  • 5 of 5

I just left a few days ago this dream home and I already want to go back, it is a peaceful and quiet place, with a privileged location with lovely views toward the lake.

Lovely and cozy home, taking care of the small details, everything you need you have it, the kitchen is really well equipped, bedrooms, bathrooms, wifi, washer/dryer and a lot of life on the outside of the house, there was a barbecue with everything you need including bag of charcoal, the table in the garden where we had breakfast, the boat was a fun experience getting around the lake.

I had no car, and I had no need for it, there is a bus stop right in front, in 15 minutes you are in the city center, Ulrika and Christoffer were lovely and resolved all my doubts: how to locate basic services in the area, supermarkets, cafes and different ways to get to the city center from the house, I really recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend a few peaceful days in this beautiful city .
