Reviews of this property
This house is situated at a wonderful place 40 m to the water surrounded by nice trees.
Unfortunately the house is in a poor condition. The description of the house says: "newly renovated with charm" But if you look at the house it seems the renovation had started in two rooms and stopped afterwards. If you take a shower the water splashes out of the bathroom, because you can't close the two bathroom doors. The windows are old and dirty. The porch and main entrance door are in a very poor condition. We had to clean the fridge because it was dirty. The toilet operates on a dry system, which means you have to add a certain kind of soil afterwards, the toilet system needs a thoroughly cleaning.
Wifi was working very well.
The price is much too high for what you get.
The "relaxing house by the sea" is a piece of Heaven. Surrounded by the water, you can sit under fantastic trees in comfortable furniture. The house has everything you need, is really nice to live in an in case of need, you just may call Catja who is there to answer. The island is a very nice one with beautiful houses and boats and from which it is easy to join the centre of Lindigö and also Stockholm. We have passed marvelous holidays. Thank you :-)
Such a wonderful place to relax !
Enjoying nature, ducks, swans, silence, and beauty of the landscape.
Spent my time reading on a deck chair, right on the pontoon.
We had a marvelous time in this house, situated just half an hour from center Stockholm, what more to expect ?
Catja was very helpfull and so kind, making the stay a real delight.
Can't wait to come back !
Reviews for this host's other properties
First of all: the location is amazing!
10m from he see but unfortunatley also 20m from another bigger house. We were very lucky to have quite neighbours but I can imagin it could have been worse ...
The cottage needs a big clean up, both on the outside and the inside. At the back of the house it is a mess of wood and plastic and all kind of other things. It would be pleasant if this garbage should be taken away and replaced by a nice wooden terrace.
In the inside there is all kind of unnecessary stuff everywere (also left by everyone who once came on vacation). I cleaned it a little bit myself to create some space to put my own things, like clothes for example.
In the house I found this sentence: "a clean house is a sign of wasted life" ... I must say that this is the spirit of the place, so if you like the "bohemian" style, this cottage is perfect!
It's really a little piece of heaven, I already long for it.
House is really roomy for two people (I would recommend it for a family with one or two small kids, but not more adults)
The Sleeping Room in the roof was really comfy and dreamy (when It rains you hear the drops near your head, its so soothing :)
The House was a bit untidy, if you are accustomed to something else, but all in all clean and ok.
The Toilet situation was really getting used to, cause its a bag inside you have to pour on earth and change when its full. It freezes on the inside, so there's no smell tough. But for people who have problems with toilets on travelling, it's not recommendable.
There is another house beneath, which you can not see on the pictures. Nobody was in there though
The Sea and the view is amazing, you feel so much on yourself and in the morning there was a deer looking into our window
We loved beeing there, chilling on the couch and looking outside, sitting by the sea and reading a book.
A really relaxing holiday
Wir waren im September 2016 dort und hatten 3 wundervolle Tage. Direkt am Meer in einem kleinen, rustikalen Häuschen, wo alles drin ist was man braucht. Super netter Kontakt zur Vermieterin. Zwei Boote, die man benutzen kann. Einfach traumhaft dort!
Die Lage des Häuschens ist ideal. Wir waren mit Bus und Bahn schnell in Stockholm, konnten aber morgens und abends am Wasser sitzen. Das Haus ist für 4 Personnen gut geschnitten. Auf dem Grundstück war es etwas unaufgeräumt und die Toilette ist eine Art Plumpsklo. Ansonsten haben wir den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
First, the good points.
The location is stunning, you are literally a few metres from the water and the peace and quiet is amazing. The wildlife is wonderful, in our short stay we saw deer and all manner of wild fowl from the windows of the chalet. You are only a 20 minute drive from the centre of Stockholm. The chalet itself is quirky and quaint and has all the facilities you need. We have 2 small dogs so it was important that they could stay with us, which wasn't a problem. They had a great time too as there are plenty of opportunities to walk in the beautiful surroundings. Catja was available when we needed her as she only lives a couple of hundred metres away, in the circumstances we didn't need any assistance but it was nice to know she was close by if we did need anything.
Now the bad points.
The place had an 'unloved' and unfinished air about it. The grounds of the property need tidying up and the chalet itself felt a little cluttered. The mezzanine bedroom is not for the faint-hearted as there is very little headroom and the access ladder makes a dignified entry/exit impossible. The bridge over the watercourse leading to the chalet is a health and safety hazard in desperate need of replacement. You cannot park your car next to the chalet, even to unload, so you have to carry your luggage, however there is a wheelbarrow provided to help in this situation. The toilet facilities were 'interesting', I'll leave it at that!
In summary, I would call it "Paradise Lost" rather than "A Little Peace of Heaven" but on balance I would stay there again.
Schöne Bilder, aber man denkt es wäre ein Gartenhaus.
Alles sehr sehr sehr klein
Toilette ist ein Blumpsklo im Wald
Situated on a beautiful spot. Very quiet, and close to the centre of Stockholm. Lidingö is so nice. The cottage is very simple and a little messy. The backyard is filled up with a lot og stuff and is not looking good. The toilet will be a challenge to some renters. 5 stars for the location 1-2 stars for the cottage. Catja was very helpfull and quick to respons on our contacts. Vent there to participate in Lidingöloppet.
