About our home

We can offer a modern 2 bedroom quayside apartment, designed to maximize the indoor/outdoor lifestyle so desired on the west coast of Sweden. It’s situated on the island of Tjörn, in the middle of the world-famous Bohuslän archipelago..

Here you live by the sea, with wonderful and soothing sea views, beautiful sunsets, yet close to restaurants, shops and bakery. You can take a swim just a few steps from the apartment and If you like to fish, you can do it from the quayside.

The apartment has two bedrooms; a master bedroom with twin elevator beds from Carpe Diem, and a guest room / study with a comfortable double sofa bed (suits two adults) and a TV.
The kitchen and living room has a open plan with sitting and dining areas.
The kitchen is extremely well equipped and has stainless steel appliances and wooden bench tops. The bathroom has 2 wash basins, a shower, a washer and a dryer.

There are two balconies in sunny southwestern position; a patio of 22 m2, and a smaller conservatory with sliding glass doors to be able to sit protected, but still enjoy the nature and sea breezes.

The patio has a lounge area, and two separate dining areas. Here you will find the Weber gas BBQ.
You can always find a place to sit in the sun or enjoy the Nordic light in the long summer evenings. June and July has just a few hours of dusk with sunset after 10 PM and sunrise at 3:30

The apartment is located in the small village Bleket, in the middle of the marina Mossholmen and with immediate proximity to the picturesque island of Klädesholmen.

Included in our offer is a two seated convertible, Opel Tigra.

The Bohuslän archipelago is one of 10 of the world's last great wilderness areas, according to CNN Travel:

"The Bohuslän coast, (Bohus Coast) in West Sweden - If you've ever fantasized about gliding silently through the water on a kayak, camping on deserted beaches, enjoying the midnight sun, spotting seals and soaking up the spirit of the sea, you'll find no shortage of experiences here. This sublime stretch of coastline extends to the border with Norway and is dotted with an archipelago of some 8,000 islands and islets."

    Except for Australia, we have made home exchanges with families from Norway, Spain and Switzerland.

    Our home is a condo (28 apartments in the house) and we have to ask for permission each time we do exchanges. That is usually not a problem.
