Hello from Stockholm, Sweden
Our family consists of Maria and Martin and three children, Arvid (15), Hilding ( 13) and Elsa (10).
Maria works as Analyst and Martin as Business Controller.
We have done three exchanges in the summer of 2012, 2013 and 2014. All have been great successes!
We exchanged homes with the B family for two weeks in summer 2013, and everything went well. Their apartment is comfortable, spacious and modern, and just a stone's throw away from the Fridhemsplan subway station. Since we had warm and sunny weather, we enjoyed swimming in the city -in amazingly clean waters!- as well as in several beautiful lakes around Stockholm. Although we used our own car, some of these wilderness areas can be reached by bus from Stockholm. We thoroughly enjoyed our exchange with the B family who answered all our questions promptly and accurately in order to help us plan our holidays. That's why we strongly recommend an exchange with this family. The D. family (one couple with three children aged 14, 13 and almost 11!)
We had a great exchange with the B. family in the Summer of 2012. The apartment is beautiful, very large, modern, with a nice balcony you can eat meals on and it's in an amazing location. Within one block you can catch the subway or multiple buses, all of which run often and always on time and can take you anywhere. Within 2-3 blocks are parks, water, lots of restaurants and shopping, at least 3 big grocery stores and everything else you could possibly need. Stockholm is great for biking, with bike lanes everywhere, trails, parks, great views, etc. The B. family took great care of our home and were very easy to deal with. We had a great time here and highly recommend this place and this family!
We exchanged homes with the A family the summer of 2012. Their house is very nice and spacious with everything you could possibly need to have a grat stay, including workout equipment and very effective air conditioning. It's very well located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, yet within walking distance from the subway as well as numerous shops and stores. Chevy Chase is a great starting point both for trips to downtown Washinton as well as other places. There are also a great bike/run trail nearby. There are lots to see and do in this area of the US. The A family was very easy to deal with and they very generously listed us as house guests at their local swim club. Greatly appreciated in the hot summer. We can highly recommend an exchange with this family!
We really had a nice time in the Berstang´s home in Stockholm. They are very friendly and easy going. Their appartment is sunny, big and spacious and very well situated just beside the subway . You can also take a nice walk from the house to the city hall beside the sea but if you prefer the sub or bus it is also in perfect comunication.....And Stockholm is a fantastic city to spend your holidays !!!!!! We highly would recomend you to do this exchange!!!!!!!!
We did an exchange in the summer of 2014. The house is really spacious and newly renovated. Our family of five had lots of space. From the house It's close to several beaches at the coast (around 30 km). The house is close to Girona airport which makes it easy to find (road signs that point to the airport leads you in the right direction). We were not disturbed by the few planes that fly from Girona. Not far from the house is a small village with supermarket. Maria, the owner was very easy to deal with and everything was to our satisfaction. We can highly recommend an exchange!
Maravillosos días en Estocolmo, visitando los rincones de la ciudad, sus islas y archipiélagos. La vivienda está situada en una zona llena de parques, muy cerca del centro y otros lugares de interés, que descubrimos caminando, en bici y en metro. Dejarse llevar con tranquilidad y sin temor, y te sientes como en tu casa, disfrutando de los paisajes y su encanto. La familia muy agradable y dispuesta para que tu disfrutes de una agradable estancia, y la vivienda amplia, cómoda y muy con encanto.
We had a great stay at Almerimar for two weeks in July of 2015. We had no problems setting up the exchange with very nice Ana and Pepe. The apartment was very nice and fully equipped and both the pool area and the beach was very clean and well kept after. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distande on the nice boardwalk. In the village of Almerimar there are more restaurants as well as a supermarket. If you are looking for sun and bathing, this is a perfect place.
