Our home is located in Mälarhöjden, a sought after residential area West of Stockholm, with a direct tube connection to the city center (10-20 mins, depending on where you are going). You can also reach Stockhom in 40 mins by a ferry boat that picks you up from the pier just below our home. The same ferry can also take you to the Drottningholm Royal Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) or the ancient Viking capital of Birka in the other direction.

Our villa is located just above the waters of the large lake Mälaren. It has stunning views over the lake and has evening sun in the Summer - you can enjoy the sun set over the lake from either the garden or our terraces. It was originally built in the 1920's and later extended to its current surface of 225sqm, on two levels.

On the ground floor you'll find an exclusive kitchen (Poggen Pohl and Gaggenau) which opens onto a large and open living room/dining room with large windows, with a classic Swedish wood stove and offering a stunning view over the lake. The ground floor also consists of a bathroom and its adjacent sauna, which also offers a view over the lake, a laundry room behind the kitchen, a children play room, adjacent to the kitchen, and a bedroom. The villa is our primary residence and since we are foodies, the kitchen is very well equipped.

The second floor consists of a large parental room with a queen size bed (180*200cm), with large windows offering a view from the bed, and a door that provides direct access to a large terrace over the lake, a large children room with bunk beds and a small reading sofa which converts to a comfortable bed for a third child in that room, a room with a single bed, a shower room, an open office space, with a fire place and a view over the lake, and the entrance hall, with lots of storage room for clothes and shoes.

Our neighborhood is nested in the forest that lines the Mälaren lake. You can walk, jog or bike directly from our home on beautiful paths along the water. A 15 minute walk either direction will take you to traditional Swedish cafes with beautiful water views. For kids, there is a lovely little animal farm, and poney riding place, 20 mins walk away through the forest, or 5 mins by car. You can jump in the waters of lake Mälaren just below our home, a lake that is so clean that it is the fresh water reservoir for the whole of Stockholm. In the Winter, you can ski or ice skate on the frozen lake.

We have performed numerous house exchanges all over the world, and we are only now starting to rent out our villa when it is available. That also means that unlike with traditional rentals, our closets and cupboards contain our personal belongings and food. We make some closet space available for our guests in each room, however, and we free up one shelf in the kitchen for our guests's food supply. The fridge is of course left clean and mostly empty, expect for condiments.

Please note that our villa is not suited for persons with limited mobility, as the front door, at the top floor level, is accessed by two flights of stairs from the street. It is not suited either for children below the age of 5.
