“A beautiful home in a magnificent location.”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Deep in the forest, this lakeside property was a really great base to explore nearby Stockholm and to also enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this truly lovely location. We loved the nature that visited during our stay (deer, badgers, squirrels and a superb variety of birdlife, including a magnificent white-tailed eagle). The property was comfortable and well equipped, and was one of the best we've stayed in. The hosts were really helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. They were also helpful in recommending places to visit and good restaurants. The transport links into central Stockholm were excellent and took us right to the heart of the old city. One of the best holidays we've had in recent times and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

“An incredibly charming place way over our expectations”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The house was exactly what we were looking for: a quiet and cozy place surrounded by beautiful nature not too far from Stockholm.
We have never rented such a neat and well equipped accomodation. Moreover the owner is extremely helpful and takes care of your needs and gives you handy hints about the surrounding.
With public transport it took us about an hour to get to the city centre of Stockholm (involving bus and underground from "Dottningholms Slott" where we parked our car for free). However, you can also leave your car at the bus station "Brommaplan" (15 kr for 24 hrs if you arrive before 9 am).
Furthermore you can go on beautiful hikes in the woods around the house. Unfortunately the water was a little bit cold or maybe we were just too sensitive :)
Thanks a lot for an unforgettable stay, Johan and Lillebeth! We would return at any time!

“Beautiful property in amazing location”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This property managed to exceed my high expectations based on previous reviews. The location is amazing, deer visited nearly every morning for breakfast, we could watch otters in the lake and osprey overhead. Explored the numerous walks in the forest, and took the boat out to explore around the lake.
It's about 15 mins drive from Drottningholm Palace, from where you can also catch a boat into Stockholm (use the free 12hr "circular" parking rather than at the palace itself). and 30 mins from Stockholm proper.

“Beautiful, peaceful, clean and well-equipped”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were lucky and had beautiful weather to enjoy the outdoor areas of the house and lakeside. The house is perfect for a family with teenage or older children, having a downstairs double room, single room, kitchen, bathroom and sitting room, plus a large mezzanine area with 2 comfortable single beds. While it looks traditional it is modern and clean inside with broadband and wifi. This is the best equipped rental we have ever found and the care taken by the owner to make sure we were happy there was much appreciated. Another house is nearby but does not overlook and it would seem that the entire population of Sweden (well, the ones we met on our travels) speak perfect English.

“Amazing Place to Stay”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in Johans House for about 5 days and it was simply perfect. The House is the best equipped place we ever stayed and it is build with love and style. The location within the Forrest directly at the lake but also just a short drive from Stockholm city is great as well.

So if you ever want to spend some days at a silent place at the lake or you want to visit Stockholm and enjoy the sun downer at a lovely place go for this house....

The house is perfect for a family of 4 or 5. It's clean, very well equipped and ideally located. It is in quite a secluded site on the edge of the lake with it's own little jetty and rowing boat. But it's also fairly easy to get into Stockholm to see all the sights. You can park in the Drottningholm Palace car park for free and then get a bus to the nearest metro to head into the city. The beds were comfy and the small kitchen very well equipped. Basically, it is a wonderful little pocket of tranquillity on the outskirts of the capital city and we were very sad to leave.
