About our home

Walking distance to either sandy beach for the kids or rocky privacy for the older visitor. The property, 2000 sqm is located in a small community of vacation homes. It has belonged to the family since the first house was built in 1965. Two houses have been completely overhauled. The main building, approx 70 sqm. with master bedroom, kitchenette, dining cum living room with a large fire place. Bathroom with shower. Second house, 20 sqm. a double bed as well as sofa which opens up as double bed.

Dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, helps making rural life as easy as city-ditto.

Big garden with grass area. Everything is ground level so ideal for kids. Raspberries in abundance during summer, cherry, apple and plums, plus surrounding forests with blueberries and mushrooms.

Huge decks surround the houses. Ideal for making sure the either of the three table/chair sets can be moved out of or into the sunny spots. Deckchairs and a portable boombox for laid-back lounge sessions.

Begin the day with an outdoor shower as the sun comes up over the ridge behind the house. A spa-bath is at constant 38 degrees and will sooth you after a day on the beach or, with a wollen cap on top - allow you to sit outside in the middle of the winter night to look at the Big Dipper and other formations along the Milky Way.

Separate sauna-building with wood-burner stove. Fire up before dinner and it is ready for a relaxing session just after the main course. Glass wall facing the woods.

Take the fishing rods and walk down to the bay and enjoy the peace - and occasional catch (?) - or jump into the 15 ft outboard boat in search for bigger fish, or to explore the vicinities.

We thoroughly enjoy this place any period of the year - and are certain you will too!

Don't miss out on combo-opportunity. In a synchronised swap you are welcome also to our house in the city. Pls see separate listing of Höglandet, Stockholm. City and seaside living whenever you feel like it.

More about us

  1. A couple with two grown up daughters

  2. Rolf, self-employed consultant within the automotive sector. Kerstin enjoys managing projects for a major bank.

  3. We enjoy the outdoors, taking advantage of world-class skating opportunities all around Stockholm during winter and boating, biking during the summer season. We alternate between the house in the city and the cottage on one of the 5000 islands in the Stockholm archipelago. Both houses are available in synched swaps. Spontaneous weekend swaps are also of interest.
