A truly unique location with magnificent views across the archipelago. You will
never tire of the vistas from the kitchen/dining room!
Located opposite the peninsula of Malma, about 40 mins from Stockholm in a
Swedish paradise, we are located just about as far out as you can go, down
a private road and dead end driveway.
This old timber house was restored and added to in 2009. We have retained the
feeling of old timber, yet have added some modern, open plan features to turn this
house into a comfortable, modern, light, slightly quirky, family home. There is
underfloor heating throughout the house, an open fireplace in the sitting room and
a small woodburning stove, very typical for Sweden, in the kitchen dining area.
The bedrooms all have painted, wooden floors whilst the sitting, dining and kitchen
floors are wide, bare planks which we treat with pine soap, making them super soft
underfoot. The bathrooms, halls and washroom all have tiled floors.
In the main house we have 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 children´s
bedrooms with high, quite large, built-in beds (and a "secret" door....), again very typically Swedish, a great playroom with Tv, DVD player, Dvds in English, Swedish and
Spanish, toys, books and a table meant for drawing and painting. We can put extra
beds in the children´s rooms, if needed.
There is a utility room with a large freezer, washing machine and tumble drier and direct access to the back of the house and a drying line.
The bigger of the two bathrooms, has a huge cast-iron bath under a low, angled window, giving views across the bay. Not a bad place to be with a book and a drink! Off the bathroom is a door leading out to a deck and outdoor shower, also with views
across the bay. The second bathroom has a large walk-in shower with glass doors.
The kitchen/dining area faces South and has 2 walls with tall windows, taking
advantage of the incredible views across the islands and also down towards the bay.
Gas hob, electric oven, fridge, dishwasher, walk-in larder and fully equipped
kitchen. A microwave can be added.
We have a large dining table seating 12+ inside. The sitting room has a newly built
open fire-place, sofa, chairs and satellite TV with several English film and news
channels. Above the kitchen/dining is a mezzanine floor which is reached by a
ladder. Here we just have some seating where you can enjoy breakfast or evening
drinks and watch the boats out on the sea. Again, the views are staggering!
We have extensive decking facing South and East, which gives ample space for
sunbathing, enjoying breakfast or supper in the sun.
There is a large outdoor table with chairs for dining and we have comfortable
sun/relax chairs. There is a BBQ available.
At the back of the house is a small log cabin from the North of Sweden with
electricity but no water. There is a double room with a double bed (180cm). A
separate room at the back holds 2 bunkbeds as well as a mahogany rowing boat
that we use as a child´s bed!
A walk down the rocks and woods, takes you to a sunny rock from where you can swim. There is also a new, small sandy beach from early summer 2017. If you are going to rent a boat, there is a possibility of a mooring at a small private jetty.
Here you have sun-bathing rocks and swimming possibilities. Hop in the boat with
tents and a picnic and go to one of the many islands to truly experience the
Swedish freedom! We will make sure you know where to go and what to look out
for, if you are new to this area! It is a unique, beautiful and peaceful setting.
Available to borrow: bikes, life-jackets, small outboard boat, Triss "Giggen" open
sailing dinghy, fishing gear, picnic baskets, coolbags, tents sleepingbags etc.
Towels and linen included. If you miss anything, please ask and we will try as much as
possible to accommodate you.
Within 6 minutes walking, you´ll find 2 fabulous fresh-water lakes in the forest.
Both are perfecet for swimming as they warm up faster than the sea. You can swim
across without hearing a sound, except the birds and the trees! One of the lakes is
perfect for very young children as it has a small, sandy beach. We sometimes bring a
bottle of wine and some snacks as this lake has lovely afternoon/evening sun.
You have 2 golf-courses nearby, supermarket etc. within 20 minutes, bus services
to Stockholm within 10 minutes, pony riding within 5 minutes, woodland walks,
islands to explore.....
Stockholm itself is well worth a few days of exploring. Vasa, Milles garden,
museums, old town as well as a very popular amusement park with hair raising
You can also take a boat ride out towards Malma and be dropped 15 minutes from

We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children (10 and under). This house was a paradise. Plenty of room for sleeping and coming together. Great kitchen and dining space. The views are gorgeous. We swam in the nearby lake and in the sea (which was very cold). Jenny took some of us out on her boat and told us some history of the area. We invited friends to visit us for an afternoon and they took the bus from Stockholm and back again.
