About our home

Beautiful all year round wooden house in the village of Sajzy near Elk, North East Poland.
The house sits 50m from the edge of Lasmiady lake, the biggest in the area.
It is well equipped with an open plan downstairs, comfy lounge, dining room and fitted kitchen. There are two bathrooms each with a WC, the downstairs one is with a shower and upstairs one a bathtub.
There games and toys for the kids, and you can light the wood burning stove on any chilly days, but the house is centrally heated too.
Stairgates can be fitted on the top and bottom of the stairs for families with young children.
The large private garden has a sandpit, BBQ, picnic table and sunloungers.
The lake is right on your doorstep for refreshing swims or why not take the row boat available at the house and really explore.
We can organise 4 cross-trail bikes for those who want to go cycling on the numerous paths around the area.

More about us

  1. We are a married couple in our 40s. Ryszard, and Sarah. We often travel with our freinds and sometimes with our grown up children Matthew and Thomas.
    We have done several very successful exchanges so far, both simultaneous and guest points and we are looking forward to our next trip.
    I am English and my husband is Polish, we met working on Princess Cruises many years ago!
    We both love travelling and since we built our second home, Home Exchange seemed the ideal way to explore.
    We run a hotel, bar and a restaurant in the town of Elk, I also teach English part-time.
    We are pretty flexible about dates and non-simultaneous exchanges are possible.
    Car exchange is also possible ( a Citreon Berlingo), as are a few nights in our hotel if you fancy a change of scene, and a night on the town in Elk.
    We speak English, Polish and German.

    The house is a second home and holiday home.

Where is it?


Sajzy is a peacefull village located on the shores of Lasmiady lake, close to the town of Elk and on the edge of a large forest.
It has a local bus service and one shop close to the house.
Elk is 15 minutes away by car and there are numerous bars, restaurants and clubs there.
Watersports equipment can be rented and there is a beautiful promanade that takes you right around Elk lake.
You will find larger supermarkets there to stock up the fridge.
There is also a riding stables, two bowling alleys, and a cinema.
The Mazury region is known as the land of a 1000 lakes, close to the Lithuainian border the house is an ideal base to explore a few of them!

The forest is just a short walk away where you can pick wild mushrooms, strawberries or blueberries or just enjoy the peace and tranquility and try and spot a deer or moose.
If it's history you like Mazury has plenty, from Hitlers bunkers to pyramids, old castles, churches, monestaries and palaces we can help out with off the beaten track treasures.
The record pike caught with a fishing rod in Poland weighed over 24 kg, and the biggest carp was 3kg heavier. The anglers who caught them said that the fight took over five hours! In Poland, even the calm waters on the shores of a Mazurian lake can turn into an adventure.

Pike, pike-perch, catfish and eels are abundant in the lakes and rivers.
All fishermen have to have an angling license and a suitable fishing permit.

The house sleeps 6 adults, with additional sleeping for three small children (cots and fold away bed)).
The three bedrooms can be twins or doubles on request.
We can assist with airport pickups and any special requests you may have.
A note about airports:
Warsaw Airport 'Okecie' and Warsaw Modlin are 3 hours away by car also there are regular daily bus services directly to Elk, but if your're flying consider Kaunas Airport Lithuainia too, it's slightly closer and the road is a lot better.
Kaunas is a beautiful old city worth a visit.
