About our home

Arriving to our home after 2 minutes boat ride (boat included) you will experience a sanctuary. Walking off your private wharf you first pass our Sauna house where two can sleep and where you can take a sauna anytime. Walking up the stairs to the main house gradually takes you to a stunning view and here you can relax on a number of terraces indoors and outdoors. All of this only 15 minutes from downtown Stockholm.

Note that the house is elevated so you need to walk some stairs to get "home", see picture.

The water is fresh, clean and a short swim makes a great morning exercise. Get back up to the house for a breakfast in the 30 Sqm kitchen (Seats 14) with equally stunning view.

The Island is called Storholmen (Large-islet), and is a no-motor vehicle paradise. Why not visit the next door local restaurant where locals and visiting people spend quality time, almost like an extra living room. Or take a short walk to our neighbor where you can buy a package of fresh eggs for your breakfast.

To get to the House is very easy. Either we arrange a pick-up, you take the Ferry or you use our boat. The boat is used as commute boat and you do not have to worry about making some marks on it when parking. It is a smaller speedboat. Note that you need to have boating experience to drive it. You can also easily take the commute ferry 6 times every day from/to Ropsten where you have access to the Stockholm subway system, this is how most people on the Island commute to work.

A 25 minutes boat ride takes you to downtown Stockholm the most beautiful city, especially when entering from the sea side. There are many restaurants where you can park the boat at the doorstep and indulge.

Included in the swap is also a small overnight apartment/room, no kitchen, downtown Stockholm, if you want to spend some nights in bustling Stockholm nightlife and not have to worry about getting home in the night, this is the perfect solution. It is situated on Kungsholmen in Downtown Stockholm and sleeps maximum 2, in a building from 1884. When you wake up you have ample of choices for a breakfast and you have tons of restaurants, pubs and clubs literary at your doorstep. See picture.

If you are a good fisherman, you can catch Salmon, Pike-perch, Perch or Pike, from the boat or even from the Wharf. If you want some exercise you can take the red kayak for a tour around the island, or why not the SUP.

We exchange the house with Boat (and kayak) and possibly Car (direct swap)

This is the true way of discovering the Stockholm archipelago, summer lazy days, and the city of Stockholm all in one great package.

Welcome!!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

You will be staying on the Island of Storholmen (Big-Islet). Here you have about 200 houses with some half of it being populated all year around, and the other half is vacation homes. There is a local restaurant and you can ask us about where to go and buy daily fresh eggs if you like.

The ferry take you there 6 times a day or you go by your own private boat, included in the swap

At 2 minutes boat ride you get to the parking for boat and car. 5 minutes away is Djursholm, and in 15 minutes you get to lovely Vaxholm. If you add another 10 minutes, the boat can take you right into the heart of Stockholm, where you will find a stunning city from the ocean side.

If you feel like exercising, you have Bosön, where you can take the boat in 4 minutes. Here all Swedish top athletes practice with the best surroundings, and it is open for you too. Do not be surprised to find famous hockey or football players training here.
