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 !

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.
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.
Top location on the lake.
Well messy (mess) around the house.
WC should be adjusted (from garbage bag to mechanically toilet) is only addressed in 2016!
Top locatie aan het meer.
Wel rommelig (troep) rond het huis.
WC moet aangepast worden (van vuilniszak naar mechanisch toilet) wordt in 2016 pas aangepakt!
Beautiful location. Although you could easily go drive from Stockholm you feel that you are somewhere deep in the archipelago. The other summer cottages are a little further away but make environment typically Swedish. At less than ten minutes by car there is a large supermarket.
The red wooden house is wonderfully old-fashioned, very charming and comfortable enough. If we missed something Catja was immediately ready to help us or bring it.
Prachtige lokatie. Hoewel je er makkelijk heen rijdt vanuit Stockholm heb je het gevoel dat je ergens diep in de archipel bent. De andere zomerhuisjes zijn iets verder weg maar maken de omgeving typisch Zweeds. Op minder dan tien minuten met de auto is er een grote supermarkt.
Het rode houten huis is heerlijk ouderwets, heel charmant en comfortabel genoeg. Als we iets misten stond Catja meteen klaar om ons te helpen of het te brengen.
A beautiful corner of the world, there you feel like you are alone on the earth, and yet in just 15minutes (by car and tunnelbana) in central Stockholm. It lacks the information that the property is not connected to the sewage system, but the Toillettensituation is well dissolved.
We like to come back again!
Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Erde, dort fühlt man sich, als sei man allein auf Erden und ist doch in nur 15Minuten (mit Auto und tunnelbana) mitten in Stockholm. Es fehlt die Information, dass das Grundstück nicht an die Kanalisation angeschlossen ist, aber die Toillettensituation ist gut gelöst.
Wir kommen gerne noch einmal wieder!
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.
