Tigerlilly Quinn: Our Copenhagen Airbnb

Our Copenhagen Airbnb


We flew back from a 5 day stay in Copenhagen last night and I wanted to share these pictures of the apartment we stayed in with you guys as soon as possible..and that has nothing to do with not wanting to face the holiday washing or the fact we left our house in a state and I'm hiding upstairs...in bed.

We chose to use Airbnb as we did this time last year during our first trip to Paris. Much like last year we chose an apartment with a childs room that seemed the same age as Wilf. We realised just how useful this was the first time round when we could chill out on the balcony or in the living room whilst Wilf played with toy cars in 'his room'. I also think it really adds to a childs excitement when they find they have their own room and what better than a whole new-to-you toys to play with? Being that we were in Denmark this particular room was stocked full of lego.


Tom and I have both been really inspired by scandinavian design when it comes to our interior choices so we knew we would be in for a treat choosing to stay in a Copenhagen flat. As you can see the apartment we chose was absolutely stunning and the owners were extremely helpful with any questions we had during the booking process.


Being that I'm still suffering from morning sickness (hurrah!) I saw a lot more of the place than Tom and Wilf as most of the afternoons I had to come back and take it easy whilst the boys went out again.  I can't imagine how boring this would have been in a hotel room compared to a whole flat as I was able to wonder around, make myself some food, take a nap or just read on the sofa, perfect!


as you can imagine Wilf was thrilled with 'his room'


We've come back from our trip really inspired by Danish interior design and are on a mission to simplify a lot of our home. If you want to check out the apartment we stayed at you can view it here. This property worked out at about £83 per night for two adults and children are free. If you are new to Airbnb then you can sign up here and you will get £16 off your first booking.

I'm thrilled to say thanks to your nominations I've reached the final of the MAD Blog Awards again this year in the Home & Interior section. I would be so grateful if you could take two seconds to fling me a vote here thanks so much in advance! 

We received a reduced rate on our trip using Airbnb but all words and thoughts are my own

What a find - this looks amazing! I've never used Air bnb and had to confess I didn't even realise you could rent out whole apartments, so I will definitely be looking into this.

I am desperate to try AirBnB and you've totally convinced me with this post - that apartment looks amazing! X

Jess@AlongCameCherry said...

It looks amazing! So much better than a hotel! xx

We went to a wedding last weekend and booked a hotel, but some Uni friends booked a AirBnB house in the country and made a weekend of it. Such a good idea, especially when you have kids. And this flat looks amazing, I would have loved to potter around it having a nose x

Alison Perry said...

Looks SO COOL and right up your street. I have yet to try Air BnB but I really want to!

Adele Jarrett-Kerr said...

You've pulled out benefits of using Airbnb that I'd never thought of, though I love using them. Next time, we'll definitely look for somewhere with a child's room!

Eleanor Willock said...

We are also in AirBnB places for the majority of our trip and it's been brilliant so far. Choosing apartments which match your family's personality is by far the best thing about it.

What a fabulous place to stay in. My husband lived in Copenhagen as a student and I keep telling him he must take me there one day.

Wow that is amazing! What a gorgeous looking place. x

I love using AirBnB as it gives you a great feel of what it's really like to live in a place. It's more relaxing staying in an apartment than in a hotel. The place where you stayed looks lovely.
