What you will love about this home
We live on the second floor (out of three). It has 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and a toilet, total space is 80 square meters.
As you can see in our pictures, the whole apartment is quite straightforward, is more functional and cozy than luxury but it´s neat and clean with mostly white wallpapers and wooden coloured floors. And it works great for up to 6 persons.
Since our two kids need a room each , we, (the parents) have decided to have our beds in the living room as a temporal solution which means it works as a combined living room (with tv/sofa etc) and a bedroom. The combined room and the other bedroom where our son lives are spacious and bright, there´s tv and fast internet connection.
The smaller bedroom suits anyone but is perfect for a child.
Altogether there are 4 beds and a sofa.
One side of the apartment faces the garden and the other side the street.
Feel free to use any equipment (stereo, coffee brewer, several instruments, toys etc).
Our place is centrally located with shops, cafés and communications just round the corner. The neighbourhood is called “Majorna”. It is located 20 minutes from central town
The area used to be a working-class neighbourhood, today it´s a bit of a bohemian family paradise, it is the most popular one in Gothenburg with thousands of applicants for every apartment. Here you will find small local shops , cobblestone streets, many trees and playgrounds. You can use our bikes, there area is perfect for that as well. Communications are very well organized and run until 3 o´clock in the night.
There is public transport (3 lines of trams) 5 minutes away that take you anywhere in Gothenburg), there´s also a pharmacy, several grocery stores, pizzerias, pubs and restaurants nearby.
10 minutes walk away you will find the biggest recreational park “slottskogen” or the Gothenburg harbour (more information further down).

-The house has a common yard/garden that is very green and lush, there´s a small playground, a shared grill and it´s a sanctuary to retreat to a day when you feel tired or the perfect place to let your children play.
