About our home

Our second home is a small modern wooden cabin in Sweden, with a large terrasse with the greatest view situated directly at lake Visen. The cabin sleeps 5 persons (2 in queensize bed in a guestcabin and 3 in bunkbeds in the main cabin) and is fully equipped with bathroom, kitchen, dishwasher and heating. No washing machine. The lake has shallow water in a large area directly in front of the cabin, which means kids can play safely in the water. 2 bikes, canooe and rowing boat available. The cabin can also be used for skiing, skating etc in winter as "Isaberg", a smaller alpine skiing center, is only 28 km away.


More about us

  1. We are Bettina (56) and Peder (60), a married couple who sometimes travel with our 24y old calm and carefull daughter, Nadia and her boyfriend Kevin, 25y. Sometimes Tina's mom join us too. We are all non-smokers.

  2. We are both former professionals (VP of R&D and Innovation and Production&Logistics Manager) and love travelling whenever we can find the time. We have made 16 successfull home exchanges so far (3*Canada, 5*France, Spain, Switzerland, Iceland, Denmark, Austria, Netherlands and Norway) and love this way of experiencing a foreign country almost like a resident.

  3. We like being near towns/capitals but also love nature and wildlife, hiking, canooing, skiing, local culture, local food and wine etc. We have 2 gentle, cute cats that we hope you will take care of during your stay. They require nothing but food, water and a lot of affection.

Where is it?


14 small cabins are situated next to each other directly at lake Visen. Most of them are owned by locals that only come to swim, sunbath and hang out on summerdays and have barbeque in the evening. Apart from that the area is quiet and tranquil, and the view over the lake absolutely stunning, particularly in the morning and evening. There is lots of forrest and lakes around, and Ambjörnarp is a cute little village with minigolf, rail-bikes, museum, biking trail and a popular inn. Tranemo, 8 km away, has large grossary stores, a pedestrian street and a few cafés and restaurants. Gothenborg has everything and is 1½ hour away. Nearest larger town is Borås with zoo, museums etc ½ hour away.
