Vaca Houses/Apartments in Copenhagen For My Rowing Team!

Hi everyone!
My rowing team, about 20+ people altogether, is coming to Copenhagen in early September for a regatta out at Lake Bagsvaerd.
I've been put in charge of finding places to stay for all of us! No pressure...
We are looking for several apartments or a couple of large houses to rent in central Copenhagen, in the suburbs, or within easy reach of the lake via public transport. We realize there is not public transport all the way to the lake but the regatta will be running shuttle buses from a main transport hub is that is close to the lake out to the rowing venue.
I have looked on both airbnb and vrbo for rentals and found a few possibilities.
Does anyone have other suggestions for websites to search for rentals? I know there are often local agencies who handle vaca rentals and have tried google to find them but I am not coming up with much.
Thanks so much in advance for your help and/or ideas you have!

Thank you Norma. Have you stayed there? I have no picture of what the YMCA would look like. Do they have apartments, dorm rooms, hotel-like rooms?

We are mostly adults who are between ages 40 - 65 and really don't want to rough it with a bunch of backpackers. I think we're really looking for large apartments or houses that can accommodate between 6 - 10 adults each.

I'm just trying to making sure I have as many options as possible since so many listings on airbnb and vrbo are duplicates.

If you are looking at hostels, look at the Danhostel chain. It's not really oriented at young backpackers.

No, Anita, I have never stayed at any YMCA but for a bunch of athletically inclined people it seemed a possibility. Maybe if you take your dilemma to the Copenhagen Tourism Office they could help.
