About the Property
Classic archipelago style house built 2011 - 4 BR/3 bath + guesthouse with bath
You have plenty of activities to choose from. Of course you don’t want to miss seeing Stockholm – and that is so easily done with our house as your base and home. If you rented a car, Stockholm is only 30-40 minutes away, depending on where you want to go. Or maybe you chose to spend the day in the archipelago – taking the Waxholm-ferries from one of the old steamboat-quays (there is one at walking distance but most ferries leave from Vaxholm, 10 minutes away in car). You just have to see Stockholm from the water – it’s amazingly beautiful! If you take the ferry into the city center, you get to see both the archipelago and the city center from the water – so worth it. And if you know your way around boats, you might want to rent your own?
On other days of your vacation you will probably want to relax and hang out at home. Actually, you will find it so lovely that it will be hard to leave for the excursions you had planned… Some days you might just move from the sunbed to the sunchair to the hammock – changing your view so that you sometimes look out over the water and see the big cruise ships compete with lots of sailing boats, and sometimes you look out at the garden, full of summer flowers, birds and bees. Every now and then you have to cool off, so you get up from the sunbed to walk some 100 m to get down to the ocean, where you either jump in from the quay or walk in from the small beach.
When it’s time for dinner, you will find that our Weber BBQ is a great place to hang out around. If you’re not up for cooking, we have two excellent restaurants on the island. Or plenty more in Vaxholm. You will also want to go to Vaxholm during the day – Vaxholm is a picturesque town in the heart of the Stockholm archipelago. The town was founded in the 14th century and has for hundreds of years been the backbone in the defense of Stockholm from attacks by sea. Today it is the center of marine activities in the archipelago and a popular high end residential suburb of Stockholm. Vaxholm municipality consists of a total of 57 islands and our house is located at one of the largest ones - Resarö (the island has car access). In Vaxholm you will of course have a Swedish “fika” at one of the cafés and maybe play a round of minigolf. And you should take small ferry out to the fortress Vaxholms Kastell.
When the days get too lazy you could opt for a round of golf at Vaxholm Golfklubb. Or why not rent canoes or kayaks at Vaxholm Kanotsällskap? You will of course take a long walk in our beautiful natural reserve forests Killingen and/or Bogesund, and when there you can’t miss checking out the Bogesund castle. And go for a run around our island – you will find plenty of other joggers to follow.
Even if you will probably mostly hang out in our garden or at our deck, you will find plenty of social space inside our house as well. The kitchen is very large, and fully equipped. We have 5 doors connecting our downstairs with the garden and the deck, so the border between inside and outside will disappear.
And if you need some time alone, there are lots of places to escape to – both inside the house and in the garden. Maybe you will stop by our berry bushes and pick some fresh strawberries? Or you will grab a beer, and go and sit in the evening sunshine by the street, looking at all the joggers running by. Or, why not sweat away in the sauna, where you also have a marvelous view of the sea.
If you’re unlucky with the weather, there is plenty of space for your extended family/friends to hang out inside. We have a huge dinner table, fitting 10 persons easily and some more if you cram it a bit. You have two TV-lounges, one downstairs and one upstairs. The kids might want to occupy the upstairs one because that’s where the Playstation and the DVD is (and with that the games and films, plenty to choose from). Upstairs there’s also a minifussball-table that can be converted into a ping-pong, pool or airhockey-table. When you need to lure them away from the digital games you could light a fire in the garden fireplace and give them some marshmallows to fry.
When it comes to privacy, the 3 full bathrooms will give everyone their own space. And each bedroom has good closet space, and of course comfortable beds. In addition, there is a separate guest house with another full bathroom, small kitchenette and sleeping loft, sleeping a total of 6 persons.
Our architect created a house that is “classic on the outside – modern on the inside”. The plot is 1500 m2 (16,150 ft2) of garden and a large wooden deck surrounds 3 sides of the house, which is 220 m2 (2400 ft2), built in 2011. The house has stunning sea views and apart from the functionality described above, we of course have great wifi internet (fibre) and there is also a Sonos music system, and a sauna where you see the cruise ships passing by in the distance.
We are seasoned travelers ourselves and we love to discover new places. Often we rent a flat/house where we go and we love to get the “real feel” for a place, not just the touristy hotel parts. We hope you will feel the same when staying at our house. This house is our home, so we are primarily looking for guests during holiday times, such as July-August and Christmas and Easter time.
We would love to welcome you to stay here during the summer. Come explore the Swedish archipelago and Stockholm while being comfortable in our house!

About the owner: I’m the dad in a family of 5 who loves traveling and have had the good fortune to do plenty of that. During our travels, often with the kids, we usually rent apartments/holiday homes around the world and believe it’s the way to be both comfortable and for a short while be part of a normal life neighborhood. As we spend a lot of time in our holiday home in the South of Sweden we are looking to rent our home during the summer months of July/August. We are here ready to help you and we do know Stockholm. We also have a Stockholm city center apartment so combos are available. We speak English, Spanish and Swedish. My wife also has Portuguese and German on her language list. So don’t hesitate – get in touch.
Why the Owner Chose Resarö, Vaxholm, Sweden:
Vaxholm provides a unique atmosphere. So much going on and such tranquility at the same time. The town founded in the 14th century to protect Stockholm from attacks at sea is a charming center of the marine life in the archipelago. And you are only 30-45 min away from the city of Stockholm – by car, boat/ferry or buss.
