Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kungsbacka Ö - Gubbelyckan

Suitable for maximum three persons, but up to six persons can sleep here

This guest house has been renovated from October 2015 until May 2016 and is now for rent. It's located high above a beautiful and typical Swedish lake with two small sandy beaches - perfect for children, big and small. The beaches are 300-500 metres from the house, but the lake is only 100 metres from the house.

The area of the house is 25 sqm - one kitchen with a small stove/oven, a fully tiled bathroom (shower) and toilet, a living room with a bed sofa (120 cm), TV, DVD and 20+ films and a bedroom with a twin bed (140 cm). There is also a loft with two mattresses - perfect for children who want a more exciting place to spend their night. The loft is not suitable for adults but there IS enough space for two adults if you really need space for six persons. Please, contact me for more details about this option. The ladder up to the loft will only be installed if more than four persons are staying in the house.

A great viewpoint over the lake and forests with fantastic sunsets all summer. Sunny all day (unless it's cloudy ;)

The distance from Gothenburg is 35 km and it takes 35 minutes by car. You can also park your car in Anneberg or Lindome and take the train even faster (and a lot easier). Free parking at the train stations makes it less stressful to visit Gothenburg that way. Liseberg is only 25 minutes away. Wonderful Kungsbacka (at the sea) is 15 minutes away. Another fantastic lake is 5 minutes away by car (Västra Ingsjön). It also has a sandy beach and a big dock.

This house is the last house on a gravel road, and behind the property is a huge area of deep forests where you can stroll around for hours without meeting anyone. Lots of mushrooms and berries in the autumn.

About Paul Sirugo

I am a high school teacher (math, physics and computer science) who has chose to only work part time as a teacher. I own two properties that I rent to people want to get away from the noisy town - to forests, lakes, sunsets and tranquility in a typical Swedish landscape. My other property is Torpet Nyhem (a big forest cottage near Skene) and it can also be found here on Homeaway.

I am also a photographer, travel agent (hiking, biking, photography), programmer, and web designer. I am also active with my own business in those segments. See http://paul.sirugo.net

Paul Sirugo purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Paul Sirugo chose Vastra Gotaland County

Great panoramic view. Forests and lakes. Great for both children and adults. Very sunny.

What makes this cottage unique

Rural landscapes in a genuine Swedish way - yet close to Gothenburg (cityscape) and Kungsbacka (seascapes).

Bonjour from France, I was looking for a little house in the countryside near a lake. I haven't been disappointed. Wonderful walks around the lake and in the forest. Good picking of mushrooms and a sunny weather for this end of the month of August A big thank you to Paul for his excellent advices to visit some sights closer to my aspiration. It was my first stay in Sweden and I intend to return.

Hola from Catalunya. Our first visit to Sweden! And we are happy that we chosen this little house in this enviroment. No shops near, and the house is 50 metres from the closest house. But it was very good and enjoyed the silence and swims in the lake. The water was not as warm as we are used to but warm for september! Glasses and plates for everyone!!! Finally! :) And thank Paul, making us feel so welcoming and taken care of when we need tips for nearby places to visit on our first trip to Sweden.

Charming place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this small but very charming house for one week in June. Just renovated for the season with some spots still unfinished. We had a great time with beautiful walks in the forest and swims in the lake. The house itself has everything you need except for a washing machine. No problem for us because we did not need one. The wifi-connection dropped a few times but Paul was at home all week and helped us immediately. The rooms (and bathroom) are really small but still enough space for two adults and a child (our daughter is 9). Paul helped us to find some great places for day trips close to the sea and in the surrounding forests. This became one of our favorite places, and we will probably be back next year. Hilsen fra Danmark :)
