We are Mai and Torben, a couple in the 50’ties, living
in an old house with a garden, a conservatory and a terrace. We
prefer – spring and summer - to eat as far “out” as possible, depending on the
weather. We have three kids in university, and they live close
by or in our house, so you might meet them. You will certainly meet one of our
cats. The other will probably stay away when guests arrive. Both for leisure and work we travel a lot, and it is always
nice to meet “the locals”. In that way we learn a lot of that country and it's people. We will
like to ”pay back” by letting other travelers like you come to our home.
Scandinavian, English, some German, very little French
Hellerup is a pleasant suburb just 10 minutes by train from central Copenhagen. We live 3 minutes’ walk from the station and 10 minutes’ walk from two harbors and a beach.

The barbecue is central and is used for all kind of food. Vegetables gets good! But we make all kind Danish and European dishes, with all kind of meat. Seafood is very often the starter or main dish. We can adapt to your taste.
Travelling, outdoor life (especially cross country skiing, sailing and cycling), food and wine.
Hosts Torben (and family in my case) were extremely hospitable and turned the evening into a very pleasant and stimulating one
Trip into Copenhagen's suburbs to be with people in THEIR environment rather than tourist areas well worth it
Good food, Good company and a fun filled evening all add up to a a rare travel experience
To be repeated
