We had a lovely few days in Copenhagen last week. So I thought I would share with you where we stayed whilst we were there, and what we thought of it.
I found this great property on AirBnB, which is my new love for finding holiday properties! The initial reason on why we chose the Beach House was due to the location. We wanted something that we could easily travel around Copenhagen from, and somewhere that we could also relax. A few days before we had visited our friends in Sweden, so we knew with all the travelling we had done, we may want a place that we could relax in too.
The Copenhagen beach house it situated about 10 minutes on the metro from the city centre, 10 minutes on the metro from the airport, and a 5 minute walk from the beach. So this gave us everything in terms of the location. The metro station is only a 2 minute walk from the house, so when we left at 4:30am to get back to the airport we didn’t have the stress of travelling far with 3 tired kids in tow! Also when returning from a busy day out, the house was so close.
When we arrived at the beach house, we really pleased with our choice, it was super clean, tidy, the kids room had toys to play with and books to read. The beds weren’t made up when we arrived, which is unusual, but not something that bothered me too much. However if I had arrived late, after a long travel it may have!
If your like me and love a nice cup of tea when you arrive somewhere, make sure you stop off and get some milk and supplies first! The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, and equipment to use. You are free to use their condiments for cooking.
We had requested to have our 3 children sleeping in the back room together, so they had a bunk bed, and the extra mattress on the floor. The rooms had blackout blinds which is well needed in city! The bedroom had all the owners kids toys in there, so the children had toys to play with, and books to read.
We had the front room, with 2 single beds together.
The bathroom was great, enough hot water for all of us, decent shower, enough toilet rolls and towels for everyone.
There is a utility room with a toilet downstairs, in here is a washing machine and dryer. However you need to purchase your own washing powder. I have suggested to the owner that it would be really helpful if they could provide a couple of washing tablets for us to use if need be. With kids you never know the mess they may cause, but I wouldn’t want to purchase a box of washing powder, to only end up using it once!
The beach was another reason on picking this house, it was only a 5 minute walk away from the house. However the weather wasn’t really on our side, and even though it was sunny, it was pretty windy on the beach and we ended up only visiting on the first day we arrived! Which was about 6pm, things were shut up, and it was pretty empty. It is a great spot for having an evening run, walk, and swim for the locals though. You will also find a couple of restaurants to visit here too.
Also near the beach is the local Lidl, this is perfect for picking up bits and bobs for your stay. We shop at Lidl at home, so could easily recognise foods! There is a larger supermarket about 10 minute walk away.
There was a lot of apartments for rent in Copenhagen, but we liked the idea of a garden to chill in the evenings too. I love the big glass doors that looked out into the garden from the house too.
Overall we were really pleased with our trip to the Beach House Copenhagen, it’s great for a family, fantastic location and we would happily book it again.
*This is our 2nd booking on AirBnB, and both have been very successful. We paid for this booking ourselves, but I wanted to share a great find with you. Links to AirBnB are my referral link, which means I will earn holiday credit if you go ahead and book to stay at any property on AirBnB
