I have selected a few reviews which may give you a general idea of our place.
I would like to keep Erik and Jolauta’s place a secret, so I can enjoy his apartment and garden all to myself! It was a lovely visit in a beautiful upscale town outside of Copenhagen. Just a 10 minute walk from the local train station and you arrive at his house. The apartment upstairs was spacious and had everything you might need for an extended stay. It was quiet and peaceful, and we woke up to birds singing every morning. Erik welcomed us into his garden for a glass of wine and a stroll through the extensive plantings. Out the back gate are well manicured forest paths that the locals use for walking and biking that we enjoyed as well. We look forward to staying with Erik again and exploring more of Denmark from this location! It is quite a magical place 🙂
We had a marvellous time in Jolanta’s and Erik’s apartment. Danish hospitality at its best, a truly fantastic garden, close to the beach and communications makes their place a great home base to explore Copenhagen and its surroundings.
Erik’s house and garden are really spectacular and with the welcome Erik gives you, you will feel right at home. We spend a couple of nights at this place with two adults and two kids during the heatwave at the end of July 2018, so we were very happy with the beach & park and the Subway station to the city center at close proximity. The garden is a delight for your senses and you can see that Erik and Yolante spend a lot of time and TLC on it! If you want to visit Kopenhagen but want to be in peaceful surroundings, this is the place to go for you.
We had a great time in Jolanta’s and Erik’s charming house with the wonderful garden. Right from the start, we felt very welcome and “at home”. The apartment is practical for a family, the sea is very near, also the trainstation and you can easily bike to Copenhagen in half an hour.
Fabulous hospitality. There were fresh-cut flowers from Erik’s garden on the coffee table in the living area. Erik even carried my heavy suitcase up the stairs upon arrival and down upon leaving (with a hand dolly this time! ;-)). Very large space eclectically decorated with items from around the globe. All the amenities, including coffeemaker, water boiler, microwave, and hair dryer were included and in perfect working order. It was cool the first evening so we lit a fire in the small wood stove and it warmed the whole apartment very well. Nice sunsets from west window and balcony, nice view of garden from balcony. Parking was right in front of the villa. The town is quiet and upscale and very close by. Erik provided a map marked with restaurants and food markets upon arrival. The only (very slight) negative was a spotty wifi signal, but once we figured out where the signal was strongest (near west window and balcony) that was not an issue at all–Erik explained that the router must be located where all occupants can access the signal, even from the basement unit, and it’s quite a large villa. Overall, the experience was lovely and we would stay again if ever back in DK.
Folks, Erik’s place is legit; it’s awesome! His apartment is spacious, and has all the basic kitchen amenities you’ll need. There’s a nice fireplace to help make things cozy (stocked with firewood), and a balcony overlooking Erik’s garden. And what a garden it is! It’s a labor of love, and you can tell. If you’re hoping to explore Copenhagen, and Denmark itself, Erik’s place is the perfect spot. It’s especially ideal for those who prefer to lodge away from busy city areas. It’s in a nice quiet neighborhood, just minutes away on foot/on bike from a train station, as well as various shops. The train will take you right downtown to Copenhagen in no time. We stayed here for several days and explored all over Copenhagen, Zealand, and even Malmö. Erik and his wife were awesome, hospitable hosts. I cannot recommend this apartment enough; it really enhanced our experience in Denmark. Thank you again Erik for a pleasant stay!
Erik and Yolanda greeting us warmly the moment we stepped into their stunning backyard. After a lovely tour we settled right in and woke up to the most relaxing sounds of nature that surrounds the area. Erik showed us around his breathtaking backyard that he and yolanda worked on for 40 years! We initially were booked for two nights and fell in in love with the place we booked for one more night. We were so sad to leave but will be coming back here in the future on another family trip. Also it was a very short distance to the train and the walk there is just beautiful.
This is a piece of the best of Danish life, a quirky apartment in the roof of a suburban home. With character, wonderful views, charm and perfectly easy access to the city via the S-train. Erik is warm and welcoming and helpful. We will use this again
Erik and his wife are very hospital people and he provided us with maps of the local area so we could quickly find the local amenities. We had two nights in his charming apartment in a nice leafy suburban neighbourhood only 10 minutes from the sea and close to the Charlottenlund Palace. The apartment is only a stone’s throw from a railway station from which the city centre is only a short journey away. The apartment is a light and airy open plan one and has wonderful views from the balcony over Erik’s carefully maintained garden and the woods beyond. There are shops and restaurants within easy reach of the apartment. If you want to visit the city but want an upmarket and quiet leafy suburb to retire to in the evenings this is an ideal choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would not hesitate to recommend it.
I wish I could give six stars for this location. Not only were the house and garden straight out of a fairy tale, Erik and Jolanta were charming and gracious. They were flexible and communicative about check-in time and greeted us with wine and a tour of the garden. The attic-space architecture was really cool, the beds were comfortable and warm (more than we needed for just 2 people; the flat can readily sleep 4), the garden/park view was lovely, the shower pressure and temperature were good, and the train into Copenhagen was a convenient walk through the park.
This house is amazing! Nice, clean, well equipped, safe and beautiful! And what a garden! We were warmly welcomed with glasses of wine with Eric and Jolanta. Hosts gave us good tips (shops, bakery, restaurants and amusements) and a useful map. The house is perfect for a family like us (4pers). We had bicycles with us, and cycling was very easy way of moving around Copenhagen, Charlottenlund and all the way to Bakken (amusementpark nearby). We would definitely stay overnight here another time too! Thank you, and maby we’ll see again :
Erik and his home are fantastic. Meeting in the beautiful garden for a glass of wine and chatting a while with him was the perfect remedy to a long day spent travelling and working. We felt extremely welcome. For the rest of the week we found the location to be excellent, with many essentials in walking distance and with a short walk to Copenhagen transport into the city and our workplace. Would recommend staying here
Erik and Yolanta were perfect hosts: they allowed us to make last minute changes to our booking, were extremely welcoming when we arrived greeting us with wine and conversation. They prepared us a crib sheet of places to see, travel into Copenhagen, the Sunday flea market and local restaurants with some indication of the variable prices. We got a full tour of their beautiful house and the facilities at our disposal and then they quietly faded into the background to allow us to get on with our holiday. Jolanta was even kind enough to let me have some seeds from one of her plants to take home. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and their beautiful home and would return in a heart beat.
KavitaThe location of the home is superb – best neighbourhood in town. The hosts cannot be nicer and went out of their way to make us comfortable. It’s easy to get to the city center and the flat is nice enough to make you want to just stay at home and relax. We loved our experience and will try our best to return someday. Highly recommended.
Erik’s home is lovely and the garden is a magical place. He and his wife have done beautiful things. The basement apartment is very nice, the large bathroom convenient, and it was great being able to do laundry. Charlottenlund is a lovely town with the beach and restaurants just a few minutes walk down the road and the railway to Copenhagen just as close the other way. We would stay there again!
Wonderful hosts! Erik and his wife have a beautiful garden and we enjoyed sitting out there with our books. Their home is a short walk (through lovely trees) to the metro station, and they were even kind enough to offer to pick us up and drop us off at the station while we had our luggage. We really enjoyed our stay!
Erik and Jolanta are very helpful and friendly. They give you any help, recommendation or information you might need during your stay. everything was well prepared when we arrived. The house and the garden are absolutely stunning. It is in a very calm and quiet area, but you are able to go to the beach and a couple of good restaurants and supermarkets are nearby, as well as the train to copenhagen. I loved it, there is not much more I can say. wonderful hosts in a beautiful place!
Where can I start? Well, to begin with, Erik, the owner was incredibly nice and helpful. Both on site and via Airbnb. He greeted us at his house with two glasses of red wine. The apartment was quite big, everything was clean and very welcoming. The garden was gorgeous! I only wish we could stay longer. The location itself was perfect for us. Plenty of parking spaces near the house, 5 minutes away from the beach and 20 minutes from the city center. Will be happy to stay there again the next time.
