This house is our second home. The house has an amazing and private location in the best part of the archipelago, has a sauna just by the water, its own dock and is still only 40 minutes drive away from Stockholm city. Or 50 minutes by bus. We strive to do our utmost to have our guests enjoy this family gem of ours as much as we do!
This house in the Stockholm archipelago is our second home. We have carefully renovated the house since 1997 to its current state. The house has an amazing location in the best part of the Stockholm archipelago and is very private, still within easy driving access to Stockholm city about 45 minutes away. The property has one bathroom, 4 bedrooms of which 2 in the main house have double beds. One of the bed rooms is located in the small house by the water, simply a great location.
The house is fully equipped and has all equipment needed for a relaxing stay such as washing machine, dishwasher, two TV machines, stereo, DVD with movie library, children’s toys etc. Towels and linen for all guests are included. Costs for linen, towels and cleaning is an additional 225 euros per stay. If you want to use the sauna or the open fire place you can buy firewood at the gas station by the bridge over to the island only 10 min away from the house.
By the water is a very large dock with abilities for a private swim, a rowing tour and/or sunbathing. There is also a separate house including a wood burning sauna as well as one of the four bedrooms. A rowing boat for excursions in our bay and a rubber dingy for the kids are included for our guests. 75 meters from the dock are two small islands – the perfect morning swim is back and forth.
Opposite the dock and easily accessible with our rowing boat or by talking a stroll on a charming gravel road, is the Skarpö peninsula. With its fantastic nature and wildlife, including deer, moose, foxes and eagles, its a great place for exploring and enjoying the archipelago nature. There’s even a secret second world war II fort hidden in the deep forest…
Four restaurants, several other shops (including groceries) and other facilities are within 5 minutes driving distance. Also nearby are the ferries going to Sandhamn, Stockholm’s sailing Mecca with plenty of sights, restaurants and action in general – a perfect day trip.
The drive to Stockholm International airport, Arlanda, is about 80 minutes. Skavsta airport (Ryan Air) is 1h 45 minutes away. Public buses for downtown Stockholm are 5-7 minutes walking distance away and leave frequently.
You will be able to access the whole house as well as the sauna house and the boat house by the dock. There is a smaller house behind the main house which is locked and where we keep our private things. No one will use this house during your stay.
