The Captain’s Cabin is the brand new lower extension of this lovely Tallkrogen house. Originally it was a house in two levels, however, we have divided it into two separate levels to attend the guest’s demand – the upper – The Sun Deck - and the lower – The Captain’s Cabin. The Captain’s Cabin derives its name from the white walls, the brand new and fresh wooden floors, white tubing, cozy corridors, neat and functional kitchen – all reminiscent of a real Cabin on a cross-Atlantic cruiser from the late 19th century...
When renting the Captain’s Cabin – lower level - you will find:
Two separate rooms... – one for the ”Captain and his wife” and another one for two ”crew members” – this translates into two rooms, about 12 and 10 square meters in size. Both rooms are furnished with cupboards that can take clothes for two people each, a working desk and in the smallest room a book shelf as well, whereas the larger room has a side table by the bed.
In the kitchen there is a big white table and five white chairs. There is a stove, oven, micro wave oven, coffee cooker, water boiler, TV on the wall and all necessary kitchen utensils. The kitchen is large enough so that it works as combined conference dining room/living room for the ”captain and his crew”, for nights hanging out evaluating the next destination over a cup of tea, or sharing a delicious ocean trout together for a memorable meal among the best of friends...
In the bath room there is a separate shower and a bathtub with a shower, so that several “crew members” could prepare for the day at the same time, should the need arise due to a shortage of time etc. There is also a washing machine, tumble dryer, washing sink, a normal sink for washing clothes and a clothes rack – for drying clothes – thus there is plenty of space for everybody to wash and take care of personal hygiene. A big cupboard on top of the tumble dryer makes sure everybody in the “crew” gets enough space for his toothpaste and personal hygiene belongings. Off course, in this cupboard you will also find the compulsory hair dryer!
In “the Island” – the backyard - there is an apple tree and some other fruit trees. There is also a barbecue, a wooden sofa and some chairs so that the “Captain and his crew” can sit here, relax and enjoy life, especially during summer and spring – even autumn if the weather so allows.
The house is located at a 4-5 minute walk from the Metro station Tallkrogen on the green line. It will take you to the city in 15 mins. Tallkrogen is located closely to Nynäsvägen, which takes you to Farsta,Nynäshamn, Västerhaninge quickly (15, 60, 30 mins respectively by car), or to Stockholm city by car in about 10 mins (no rush hour!). Tallkrogen is located 5 mins by car from the new Globen Arena shopping, hotel and arena centre by car you can find most things you need here. By metro you change at Gullmarsplan and go to Globen, or you can walk from Gullmarsplan approximately 15 mins. You can park at the entrance gateway of the house for free.
For nature lovers there are lots of minor forests in the neighborhood – on foot walking towards the neighboring communities of Gubbängen and Svedmyra. Tallkrogen itself is also picturesque for evening walks with lots of multi colored beautiful Swedish villas!
For shopping you have Tallkrogen Centre and the metro at a 4-5 five minute walking distance – there you have ICA which is open 9-21.00 every day, a pizzeria, an animal food store and some other minor stores that will satisfy the most essential survival needs – for more advanced purchases, Globen Centre is 10 minutes away on the metro and the city center 15-20 mins, depending on rush hour traffic or not.
