About the property

Small two stories house with 5 beds

If you want a real taste of Swedens nature, this is a perfect Place. WE are located on the edge of a forest with forest roads for Walking and biking.. Owners Leif and Kathryn( American) raise Beef cows ecologically... Close to Sävsjös Adventure indoor pool and Boda Borg, an adventure attraction.

Within driving range is Astrid Lindgrens World and, High Chapparral , a cowboy town, Crystal area of Kosta Boda is 1½ hours away. .

A new Moose Park opens this spring.

House is surrounded by forest and the farming community. This is a meat production area for ECO meat.

There are several lakes for fishing nearby.

Sävsjö and Vetlanda are very small town atmosphere, both have market Days each week.. We are still close to a large shopping center in Jönkoping. The very large low price shopping center Ullared is about 150 minutes away.

A drive to the ocean in either direction..... Gothenburg or Öland... is only about 2½ hours either way.

There is something very special about a Swedish summer!!!!

About Kathryn Karlsson

Leif and kathryn Karlsson. Kathryn is american, and met Leif 27 years ago on a cruise in the bahamas. They have three children. Leif drives a forest machine, kathryn is a röntgen nurse in MRI: They raise ecological beef cows on their farm. They live just across the street from the house they are renting out. They think it is interesting to meet people from other lands.

Why Kathryn Karlsson chose Jonkoping County (Smaland)

It is newly renovated, clean and fresh. It is in a beautiful and quiet setting, but yet close to quite a few things to do.

You can be as active or laid back as you choose. Leif and Kathryn will gladly inform you on local events while you are there, and give ideas as to what is best at just that time of year in the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Surrounded by nature, yet only a few kilometres to the closest towns with things to do.

Schönes Domizil mitten im Nirgendwo

  • 5 of 5

Ein tolles Haus, mit super Vermietern. Sie waren immer hilfsbereit und haben sich toll gekümmert. Die Einrichtung ist zweckmäßig und das Haus sehr sauber. Toller Badesee nur knapp 3 km entfernt.

Neat, clean, comfortable and friendly

  • 5 of 5

We loved it from the start. Our thre-year-old granddaughter said: "I like this house:" It was very clean and had all that five adults and two small children could want, even a dishwasher and high chair for our one-.year-old, plus more. If we needed anything this kind and friendly family.was always there to help. We had a wonderful week, as comfortable as if we had been in our own home.

We hope to be able to come back soon.

Bullerbü lebt

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr sauberes Haus in ruhiger, schöner ländlicher Lage. Die Einrichtung und Größe ist auf 5 Personen zugeschnitten. Ein Schlafzimmer mit gemütlichem Doppelbett, ein Dreibettzimmer mit Einzelbetten. Die Vermieter sind stets ansprechbar und hilfsbereit. Auf dem nahe gelegenen Hof gibt es Katzen, die gerne auf einen Besuch vorbeikommen. Die Rinderhaltung ist weit genug entfernt so das es hier zu keinen Geruchsbelästigungen kommt. Im Wald hinter dem Haus sind Beeren und Pilze zu finden. Das Auto findet seinen Platz im Carport neben dem Haus.

Die nächsten Supermärkte (ICA, Netto, Coop) sind im ca 9km entfernten Sävsjö. Der nächste Badesee ist etwa 4km entfernt und mit Sprungturm und Trockentoilette ausgerüstet.

Einfach nur toll!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt. Das Haus hatte für uns und unseren fast einjährigen Sohn die perfekte Größe.

Die Umgebung ist schön ruhig, vom Viehbetrieb merkt man gar nichts. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist zweckmäßig, aber völlig ausreichend.

Bei einem Problem mit der Elektrik waren die Vermieter sofort behilflich und lösten das Problem innerhalb kürzester Zeit. Überhaupt waren die Vermieter sehr zuvorkommend, freundlich und sehr nett!

Alle Angaben im Inserat sind absolut zutreffend, das Haus war in einem sauberen Zustand, als wir eintrafen.

In der Umgebung finden sich so viele Freizeitmöglichkeiten, so dass wir in zwei Wochen gar nicht alles anschauen und erleben konnten! Aber wir kommen bestimmt mal wieder. Zu empfehlen ist die besagte Badestelle mit dem sehr sauberen Wasser, dem Sprungturm und der Liegewiese, die sowohl für Sonnenanbeter als auch "Schattenparker" gleichermaßen geeignet ist. Zudem ist sie nicht so überlaufen.

Wenn wir könnten, wir würden dieses Haus auch für uns als Ferienhaus kaufen! Klare Empfehlung!

Mange tak, Kathryn & Leif
