Autumn news 2020
September 1, 2020
2020. What a bumpy ride it’s been so far.
Remember January? If anyone had told me a virus would turn the world upside down a few months later… it already seems like an entirely different world to live in.
Beaps Summer. As travelling stopped and lockdown measures were introduced in early March we took the decision to immediately reduce costs and temporarily reduce our working days to 60 % and proud as I always am about my team, I was grateful to see all my colleagues pulling together to make sure we continued to deliver to our normal high standards. Thanks to all the effort we could keep our offices open as usual, attending our clients 24/7.
We’ve been riding a storm since March, but still we managed to get through summer hanging on to an occupancy rate of 80 %. It’s been tough, and I feel deeply with colleagues and friends who’ve taken heavy blows from the pandemic. Many friends have lost jobs and entire businesses, and I suffer with all of them.
We adjusted to all recommendations from the authorities to offer Skype-viewings, complete sanitations and rigorous hand washing coupled with all the social distancing rules, new routines for cleaning and administration. There is no end to it and everyone works hard to keep our heads above water.
It’s been a roller coaster even on a personal level. Not being able to celebrate my mother’s 70th birthday in Japan as planned, missing the visits to my father’s grave in Rome or just not being able to visit our closest next door neighbours. Friends have lost loved ones, even young, to the virus. In many ways it’s been a very sad and horrible year so far.
But you know me, you know I won’t leave you on a sad note. Business and life goes on, and this wouldn’t be a letter from me without some positive news.
So in the midst of all this, we decided to defy the gloomy predictions. Started with hiring three new colleagues, welcome Anneli, Denise and Agneta to the Beaps Team.
During summer we opened a new office in Gothenburg, welcome to visit us on Drottninggatan 22. From September 1st, we’ll introduce five newly renovated apartments in the area of Johanneberg and in December there will be an addition of 27 fabulous newly constructed apartments in the heart of town, next to Scandinavium, most of them with astounding 360° views of the city.
In Lund we’re proud to present 12 new apartments. Many of them are already booked, but there’s still a few left. And an addition of 20 new apartments from beginning of 2021, all of them located in the very heart of the city.
Malmö amazes with five new fabulous, fully furnished apartments in the heart of the city. One still available, hurry up to book!
And of course, Stockholm continues to grow with apartments available at almost all of our addresses.
I wish to thank all our partners who have continued to book apartments through us and a big thank you to our landlords that have helped us surviving the summer.
To all of you guests out there: you know you can always count on us to take care of your accommodation needs!
Finally, I wish to love bomb my fantastic team and my wonderful family for all the effort and support they’ve given through these troubled times. We’re a great team!
Team Beaps wishes you all a great fall season that hopefully lets us see the end of the pandemic. We are a bit scared of the second wave but I trust that we all do our best to avoid it.
A great, big, Corona-safe hug to all of you,
Manuela Zerega Westin

To ensure a successful move for the whole family we may assist you with arranging the necessities for a smooth arrival to a new town and country for all family members.
Our Deluxe Deluxe Package includes a portable baby crib with mattress, a baby bathtub and a high chair. Please Note that bedlinen are not included however we encourage you to bring familiar linen as they make a huge difference to how quickly your child can settle in. Having a favorite pillow case in your luggage can be wonderful. Bringing the entire set will the ace up your sleeve
Swedish income taxes are high – granted. But a large share goes into providing a work–life balance within society. When it comes to choosing a place to start a family, the Swedish society has plenty of family-friendly arguments. To state a few; mandatory paternity leave, taxes based on each individual in a couple rather than the couple as a whole are examples of those. Sweden is at the front of the pack when it comes to gender equality. Free schooling, child allowance benefits, healthcare is nearly free and free public bus rides with prams. The list can go on but the most striking thing is how that equality plays out in everyday life.
