While traveling through Scandinavia this summer we stayed at the perfect Airbnb in Hellerup, Denmark. It’s about 20 minutes North of Copenhagen in a residential neighborhood and just steps to the beach. We were a bit hesitant to stay outside of the city but it turned out to be a great decision. The house was wonderful and even included a trampoline for our kids…which was a welcome activity after eighteen hours of travel!
Jes is the owner and was the perfect host. You can view and book the home on Airbnb.
The featured picture above is of the dining room after our first dinner at the house. Notice the Arne Jacobsen wall clock? Love this place.
