Perks for the Parents

This spacious apartment in the heart of Copenhagen is full of beautiful Scandinavian details and includes a spacious family room, 2 kids bedrooms and a Christiania bike to borrow. Located on one of central Copenhagen’s main streets, it is a quiet spot with lots of natural light. There is an espresso machine in the kitchen for early mornings, and a bar with locally-made spirits for the evening. The master bedroom has a king Stearns & Foster mattress for quality sleep; one bedroom is on the other side of the hallway for easy and quick access to the kids, and the other bedroom is off the living room. Steps away you’ll find a food hall, cafés, shopping and the city’s lakes.

Why Kids Love it

The apartment has plenty of toys (Legos galore) and art supplies, and a big open living room, perfect for movie nights. It is suitable for kids under 5: for younger children, there are 2 high chairs, and a baby bath and potty in the bathroom. The owners have a kids bike you can borrow, and it is easy to ride to 2 nearby playgrounds, or the park nearby. Alternatively, ferry the kids around in the Christiania bike like a local family. The kids bedroom is cozy and filled with books, and has a BudtzBendix tent for imaginative play. The apartment has a shared courtyard and garden with a small playground and sandbox.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 days. The apartment is on the first floor, with no elevator. It is all on one level with no stairs. It is at the rear and is not directly on the main road. Note that as typical in Copenhagen, the bathroom has no bathtub. There is no parking; car rental is not recommended with easy public transit and bike routes nearby. There are 3 grocery stores within a 5-minute walk, plus a handful of bakeries, and some great coffee shops, cafés and wine bars. The Meatpacking district, filled with hip restaurants and bars, is just 15 minutes away.

About the Location

The residence is in Vesterbro, central Copenhagen, an area home to lots of boutique design shops and cafés. The apartment is just off Vesterbrogade, with public transport, shops and restaurants just outside the door. The WestMarket food hall is just half a block away. You can't beat this location - Copenhagen Zoo, Søndermarken and Frederiksberg Gardens as well as Tivoli Gardens, are all within a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride from the apartment. Copenhagen Kastrup airport is around 25 minutes by taxi or 30 minutes by public transit.

Accommodation Details

This 160 sqm apartment has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and has access to a large courtyard and garden with playground and sandboxes. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed plus connecting office and closet. There is also a kids room with a bunk bed (baby bassinet or crib available on request) and a second bedroom with a queensize bed. The family bathroom has a shower and baby bathtub, and a washer/dryer. The fully equipped kitchen includes an eat-in nook; there is also a more formal dining room and a large open living room divided into 2 spaces. There are 2 juliet balconies with garden/playground views.

Style Notes

Airy, bright and modern. The apartment is in a small quiet rear building, built in the 1930s, and renovated completely in 2014. Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism, it is still warm and hygge. Stripped oak floorboards, white walls and bright artwork frame the light-filled space. The apartment includes design objects and furniture from local designers, including HAY, Muuto, and FermLiving. We love the playful touches for kids, the cozy dusky pink sofa and the location in the heart of the city with everything you could need on the doorstep. Please note that the owners will be renovating the space until early Spring 2018 with new pictures to follow.

The Little Mermaid to the Big Dipper

Copenhagen is the perfect-sized city to explore with a young family. Borrow a cargo bike and freewheel around town, exploring bakeries, the Tivoli funfair and the city’s historic streets. Give the Little Mermaid a wave from a boat tour and make sure you visit some of the city’s fantastic museums - including its excellent zoo. Fun fact: Lego was created nearby.
