The best place to live if you need a place to live in Copenhagen during January, February, March and half of April. Peaceful and close to nature and yet close to everything in the city.
This place is the closest you get to heaven! In Denmark at least. And I really mean it. Living here with kids is wonderful, we have the nicest neighbors, playgrounds nearby, almost no traffic, plenty of grocery stores, sufficient public transport, the centre of the city 4 kilometers away and the most beautiful nature just out side the door. Inside the house on the ground floor there is an open space kitchen and dining room combined with the living room, which means you can spend time together even when cooking and doing other stuff. Bath and toilet is on the ground floor as well. Upstairs there are two bed rooms and a study. The queen size bed has a soft futon mattress and the bunk bed in the kids room has latex mattresses. There's no crib at the moment but if you need one, let me know, and I'll try and find one for you. It is possible to make another queen size airbed in the study or mattresses on the floor. There are only one door upstairs between the kids room and the study. The master bedroom is combined with the study and the stair case. There's no bedroom on the ground floor, so if you can't walk up the stairs, you'll have to sleep in the living room, which is combined with the kitchen. It's really perfect for a family and people who are very close.
All rooms are available. You can use the trampoline a (see house rules) and the small playground outside.
You can call me or ask the neighbors if you have questions.
You can use the TV with our Netflix account (but please do not change settings). It's a smart TV so you can use your own Blockbuster account for streaming films and so on. If you want to listen to music downstairs you can use the speaker with your phone or computer. Just turn on and wait for it to say "connected" choose MOVEit_E276. Upstairs you can also listen to our records if you're used to handling a turn table.
* Just feel at home and say hello to the neighbors. They are the nicest people and often they'd like a chat. They are our friends, don't hesitate to ask them questions.

There's also a compost container if you cross the lawn, but please don't put cooked food in that one. And use only the ones with a lid.
* Please water the plants indoor once a week. And plants outside if it's a dry period
* Lock the terrasse doors properly from inside before leaving the house. They can be opened from outside.
* You can smoke on the terrasse if you don't throw the cigarette butts on the ground.
* The trampoline rules are: only two people on the trampoline at the same time; don't use it after 8pm; if others are waiting you have 3 minutes a time; no toys.
* Do not wash the black iron pans with soap or anything else, use only hot water.
* If you slam the fridge door, check that the freezer isn't open, it does that sometimes.
* Turn on the Genvex when cooking and showering.
I live in Copenhagen with my family which of course is my favorite thing in the world. It consist of me, my husband Niklas, and my two children, Rolf who is 8 years old and Søs who is 3. We live in a small house not far from the city center, and my brother and his family lives in the same neighborhood. Our other neighbors are friends and actually some of them have been our friends long before we moved in, so the area is like a family village to us.
The house is quite new, built in 2008 by ONV arkitects, and is a low energy house with "Genvex" which cleans the air so it's ideal for people with allergies.
We love to travel, and this time our path leads us to Japan in January, Vietnam in February and Australia in March and April. We are looking forward to seeing, eating and loving your countries!
When we are at home I work as a school teacher with kids of the age 14-17. I teach languages (danish, english, german and french), film and media and drama. I also do crafts like sewing, knitting and crocheting.
My husband is a graphic designer and musician. He does beautiful artwork and graphic design, mainly art for music related stuff like covers, posters, live visuals, but also books and website illustrations and his list of bands is long, but the most important ones are Slaraffenland, Deers of Darkness and Efterklang. If you're interested, search his name: Niklas Antonson + graphic design or the band names.
