Pros: We spent one night in the house called 'Gråmössan'. It was well and tastefully furnished and equipped and had the most amazing view towards the archipelago. Good to know: the bathroom is ...

Pros: The house is very comfortable and clean. The island is a small Paradise. Blizz.

Pros: The location is amazing, the cabin so charming, and both the heating and the chimney worked perfectly despite the cold night. The service was very nice to us. We could not try the sauna but I bet it ...

Pros: The location was wonderful-being ideal for walking and cycling. Excellent breakfast and facilities for cooking in the evening.
Cons: A double bed would've been appreciated-as requested-as opposed to pushed together single ones. Also shortage of toilet paper. Private shower would've made it better value for money.
Pros: The island is very attractive. Plenty of greenery, lakes, and ocean sights. We also got to see deer, which was an unexpected plus. We toured the island on bikes, which was a lot of fun. The staff ...
