“A little paradise by the lake”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have spent ten excellent days here in July 2017 and would have loved to stay longer. The macro location of the house was ideal for us - close enough to the city of Stockholm for a quick communte with public transport, on the other hand already on the countryside and close to the archipelago, i. e. you can catch a boat at Hasseludden brygga or Norra Lagnö after going there by bike (the Waxholmsbolaget shipping company has an app providing the timetable, tickets must be purchased on the boat (unlike the very good bus/metro Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) app which includes online tickets also) - just do not forget to set the Signal on the Semaphore indicating you want to board ;-).

The micro location is superb, with direct access to the lake and the landing-stage for the boat as well as the swimming sauna. As we loved to swim in the lake and also used the rowing boat and the canoe a lot, we were quite happy. The restaurant Langa Raden at the northern end of the lake is very nice, a Reservation call ahead is recommended as it may be crowded.

We spent nearly all day outside, favorite places being the terrace and the stone embankment to the lake. We did not experience any problems with mosquitos, however the weather was slightly on the cold side. A little disturbance when sitting by the lake and watching the sunset was the traffic noise from the street to the southwest, as e. g. the bus is still running a schedule until quite late. The house it self is very spacious and charming, built following some principles of sustainability.

Our kids especially loved the animals, the cat (shy at the beginning but very social) and the five ducks (eggs very tasty, just notice some cleaning is necessary).

A word on the hosts: Very nice contact, uncomplicated and friendly.

All in all one of the best vacations we have ever spent and a 100% recommendation.

“Dream location”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in May 2014

This is a beautifully detailed cottage-styled house within practical driving distance from amenities, and 15-25 minutes from downtown Stockholm. An experience that few can hope to replicate.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a week at this lovely house. We have two children aged 8 and 6. The house is absolutely stunning, gets plenty of light from every direction, very well equipped; tastefully and artistically decorated; spectacular views of the lake.

The kids enjoyed spending time in the garden playing on the swings, freebie golf, football etc (after all the Olympics were on..).

The friendly owners were at the house for the check-in and took us through the basics. They were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. We contacted them a couple of times for minor questions and they got back to us immediately.

We had to take care of a cat and 3 ducks (yes, 3 intriguing little characters that kept us well entertained). The kids loved the cat and enjoyed feeding the ducks, helping cleaning their enclosure, changing the water, shooing off a gang of annoying magpies (menacing they were). So nobody was ever bored.

The location is perfect - lovely quiet neighbourhood. Right on the lake. Private jetty. Access to a rowing boat and a canoe. You can bask in the sun in the garden or on the jetty or swan across the lake to a little beach and diving board. Or row across to a restaurant on the Baltic.

For shopping (supermarkets, wine shops etc), restaurants, pastry shops and pleasant walks by the harbour you can go to Gustavsberg, a charming little town only 5 minutes away by car (or 10 minutes by bike - in Sweden you can bike everywhere).

We were 100% satisfied with our choice. Many thanks Niklas and Jessica, we hope to stay at your house again in the future! ☺

“Swedish holidays at its best”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family and I were glad to live our summer in this beautiful and charming house by the lake. The area is family-friendly and modern with a traditional Swedish-twist we aimed for. The natural garden offers enough space for outside playing or relaxing, the house itself from the inside has to modern bathrooms, a big kitchen and the living space convinces with a cozy ambiance. The view over the lake is breathtaking. If you have small children, you might be carefully, house and footbridge are separated by a steep and stony slope.
None the less, we could easily enjoy city-life, living about 30 minutes away from the center of Stockholm. The bus connection near the house is advantageous. For shopping, you can easily ride your bike, or take the car to the big supermarkets. Near Gustavsberg is a pleasant spot for enjoying the afternoon.
Cooperative and none-insistent, I have o reason to complain about the landlords. We were allowed to take advantage of the greens that grew in the garden. Worth knowing, you have to take care of a good cat that is easy to look after.
If you aim for loneliness, I would not consider the house, but you will find the Swedish idyll you might be seeking for.

“Great location to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

House is in a lovely quiet and peaceful location, with wonderful views of the lake.
House is very spacious and met all our requirements. Owners were very friendly and helpful and were always contactable by phone or text to answer any questions.
Stockholm is easily reachable by local bus, which runs every 20 minutes or so. However, when the sun shines it's hard to leave this idyllic setting. There is easy access to the lake from the garden and we made use of the rowing boat that comes with the house as well as swimming in the lake.
Good selection of shops, restaurants, a lovely bakery and a post office in nearby Gustavsberg, only a 5 minute drive away. Bus tickets can be bought in the newsagents here, and the highway bus to Stockholm departs from just outside it. We availed of the free parking here and took the bus into the city twice during our week.
No hesitation in recommending this property, but wouldn't have done it without a hire car.
The owners cat stays at the house and while it spends most of the time outside it does get fed in the kitchen.
