This is not the Grand Hotel but just an amazing place in harmony with the nature and the sea!
Beautiful views, so close to the water you can´t believe!
It´s a place you choose if you want to stay in a beautiful remote place but you can´t be picky about convenience as flushing toilet, private indoor shower or running fresh water, because that’s not what you get, you get breckend water in the tap, and freshwater close by, the toilet is a “dry closet”, and the shower is outdoors.

The space

Architect drawn and award winning little seacottage with stunning lake views placed literary “on the water” on a small island on an island in Saxarfjärden. Windows and patio doors all around provide an unbelievable view and connection to the sea. The plan of the cottage is spiral-shaped with two planes shifted in height and lateral. A well-separated deck with stairs down the water on the sea side and a sheltered deck on the entrance side, both with evening sun during the summer. There is a small kitchen with oven, ceramic hob, fridge freezer and microwave oven.
You can sleep 5 people, but then we say two adults and three children, of which at least one child must be a smaller child, there are only 2-3 beds in a double bed and a daybed on the upper level, the daybed can be made up to 2 separate beds at night But should be embedded daytime,
In the lower part there is a kitchen sofa if you can make to a bed with some supporting elements and an extra mattress.
A simple stereo, “Dry closet” (non flushing toilet) and running seawater, there is a place close by to get fresh water, fresh water, however, has a brownish tone due to high iron content.
Sea cabin is located on an island without a roads or municipal transport but with access to shared aluminium boat (for a fee and deposit) and a boat taxi to come and go.
You have your own private jetty and will also have access to shared wooded sauna and shared dock, these are shared with a neighbour and with the other house on the plot.

You can borrow life wests but it could be that I don´t have the specific size you need, so you need to make sure in advance or bring your own
There is a Kayak and some fishing gear to borrow.

Interaction with guests

You will have your own jetty in front of the house, you also have full access to a Jetty and a Sauna that is shared between the cottage and the main building, when using this you might have company, otherwise you can feel totally private!

Other things to note

Most important of all: The toilet is a dry closet, so paper, and defecation as well as half a scoop of "strö" (sparse with all of that) goes down the toilet, nothing else! (No tampons, binders, etc. no unnecessary fluid and no chemicals! VERY IMPORTANT THAT THIS IS KEPT DRY!
So pour water bucket after cleaning or similar, outdoors, not in the toilet)

This is a stunning location with a sweet, bright cottage that has everything you will need. We loved being back in nature and doing a variety of activities -- kayaking, boating, sauna, swimming and bbq'ing. Anna was very helpful with directions and responsive in communicating. We look forward to visiting again.

The house has an incredible location on a tiny island. We loved using the boat and driving to other islands, loved the sauna and loved the view over the water. Anna is a helpful and warm host. The house is simple so don't expect 5* luxury. It's perfect for a week in beautiful nature. It's a great place for a summer family holiday.

We appreciated very much that Anna took time for showing us everything although we were so much delayed and she had guests during our arrival. The place on this island is just beautiful. If you don't mind the breathtaking light during the whole day, the very nice interior/exterior and to stay there and enjoy the calm, you're just right. We would love to come again!

Splendid place on a small island in the Stockholm Skärgardens in a stylish cottage with some rural elements and adventurous access when using the little boat. Anna is a very helpful and cordial host.

I've always wanted to stay in the Stockholm Archelago an Anna'a property seemed like the ideal opportunity. The cottage is small but well designed. I'd recommend only two stay at any one time - I've seen groups of four etc. but you'd be tripping over each other in my mind, especially if it is raining and the cottage is your only respite. Kitchen is basic but workable but we spent most of our time grilling. The sauna is great - Wood fired with a view over the water. I've seen comments about getting to/from the cottage. It does take a bit of effort and there are public transport options however if you are staying there for a week as we did you'll have some luggage to bring with you plus don't forget you'll need to bring with you all your food/drinks/booze as well so for us there was too much to carry we ruled out public transport. We simply hired a car and parked it at Lillsved with a short boat transfer (Arranged by Anna) to the island. I truly enjoyed our stay - We were blessed with excellent weather, magnificent views. I highly recommend Anna's cottage to anyone. Thank you Anna for having us. Steven.

This cottage is wonderful, what spectacular views and sunsets! If you like to be quiet and secluded, and private, this place will be amazing. To me the cottage was exactly as advertised, and Anna the hostess is very friendly and very clear in her communication.
