Overall we enjoyed the house. It has everything that you need for a lovely stay. If you enjoy peace and quiet, then this house is perfect. We used the house as a base to explore the area out of Stockholm. So we were generally out all day and back late afternoon, so it served our purposes well.
For us, it was a little too far from the nearest town. You couldn't walk out for a coffee or early dinner without driving. But that's our personal experience.
The family were great at replying to our emails and we wish them well in future bookings.
Very peaceful location, lots of lovely walks from the house, several beaches (mostly small, but deserted) within easy walking distance. Water temperature as expected but crystal clear waters, very good for swimming. The house is in a lovely setting, with granite boulders literally rising out of the decking. It is surrounded by trees but still has a sunny aspect. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and answered any questions we had quickly. The town itself is an interesting mixture - the port area stands alone and is charming in its own way. The boat to Sandhamn is a nice, easy day excursion (and in fact we went twice). There is a more modern part south of the main road which seems a little out of character with the area, north of the main road however is the village proper and it oozes charm as you wander its quiet streets. The jewel is of course the bakery - the baked goods themselves are nice, but it is the lunches I went back for more often. Very reasonably priced by any standard and delicious. One thing to note is that the ICE in town is quite expensive and not that well stocked, by supermarket standards. It was our first pit stop and is absolutely fine for day to day groceries but we found it preferable to buy provisions near Gustavsberg where the selection is vast, prices cheaper and quality good (there is also a Systembolaget there which is the closest to the house).
