Información sobre este anuncio
Beautifully located close to Gotland's southernmost tip and a ten minute walk from a sandy beach. The studio has high ceiling, lime plastered walls, an iron cast stove and lots of natural light. All rooms have direct access to the meadow outside.
This cottage is a part of a historical farm in the middle of the open and dramatic landscape of the Baltic island of Gotland. The building is attached to an old barn and was formerly a stable. The barn is now functioning as a contemporary summer retreat and the cottage is one of two apartments in the building. We use the cottage as a guesthouse and live in the other part ourselves.
The cottage contains of:
1 living room/studio space with a compact kitchen.
1 Bath room with shower
1 Bedroom w. 1 queen size bed
1 Bedroom w. 4 custom-made bunk beds.
All rooms have hardwood or limestone flooring.
We prefer weeklong bookings from Sunday to Sunday. Other options can be discussed. Please let us know you itinerary!

There are several excellent beaches close by. The beach in Vändburg is within walking distance. Further down the road is Holmhällar (look for a sign) and Austre (not an official beach but really beautiful). In the small harbour of Burgsviks there is a shallow and kids friendly beach with grassy lawns, a play area and sunset.
In Hamra there is a small bakery and café (north of the church) and a restaurant (Hamra Krog). The closest grocery store is Ica Hoburgshallen in Burgsvik (15 min by car), where you also can buy alcoholic beverages if you preorder (2-3 days ahead). Here you find the closest gas station, a café “Fiket i Burgsvik”, a smokehouse where you can buy smoked salmon and locally produced vegetables, two restaurants Guldkaggen (in the harbor) and Grå Gåsen. Burgsviks Bio (cinema) have picture shows almost every night. A really nice experience (like in the old days). Collect the schedule in the shops in Burgsvik.
The closest “Systembolaget” is in Hemse (30 min by car). In Hemse you can also find Apoteket drugstore, a medical clinic, a public bath etc.
In Vamlingbo there is a communal sauna 5 to 7 pm a couple of times a week. Ladies Tuesdays and Fridays. Gents Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The neighbor farm (Suderbaggens Skinn) sells ice cream, souvenirs and wool products.
Even though it is possible to take the bus here you will need a vehicle for grocery shopping etc. We do recommend that you bring your car or rent one in Visby.

Sorry no bathtub only shower (one indoors and one outdoors). The kitchen is very compact with two stove plates, a mini oven, and a fridge. During summer we prefer to do the dishing outside as well as showering in our outdoor shower. Please note that this is a remodeled barn and that sounds travel easily between the two homes – if you are sensitive to disturbances this might not be the choice for you.
The cottage is wall to wall with our apartment and there might be noise disturbances when we are home.
Bedroom no 2 have no direct access from the living room/kitchen (it is reached through bedroom no 1).
The mobile phone coverage is unfortunately poor in the whole area. Signal is generally better outside.
The opening hours of services, restaurants and other sights are limited when peak season is over (peak season from mid June to mid August).
*You bring your own bedlinen and towels and clean the house before departure.

*Take good care of our beloved summer house and it will take good care of you.
*Help us protect Gotland's unique habitat by recycling all trash and using drinking water sparingly.

We are a swedish couple who divide our time between Los Angeles, Stockholm and our summerhouse in Gotland. Both designers with grown up kids. We are curious travelers, readers and movie buffs. And we love to cook. When you stay with us you will be staying in our actual home in our absence. It is "like staying at a friend's place" as one of our guests put it. Our homes are eclectic and lived in.
