We had an amazing time in the house(s) away from work, tv, cellphones and internet and enjoyed every minute of it. We were a group of 9 (7 adults and two kids (10 and 1)) and there was something for everyone. The house was in very good shape and so was the area around it. The large lawn was great for playing games (especially for the kids), reading books, and sunbathing and the nearby forest offered berries and nice walks. We were very luck with the weather and spent all our time (10 days) outside and some of us even had the chance to see an elk. We found everything we needed and often went swimming on the lake using the provided raft, which was large enough for all of us. It was difficult for us to leave since we all had gotten used to be there and the quiet but we also left very relaxed and happy. The organisation (info, check-in, check-out, etc.) was flawless and we all are looking forward to our next trip to Sweden.

We were warmly welcomed by Christina and Kent. They showed us everything and were helpful whenever we needed something. The house is very cosy and the surroundings are fantastic. It is exactly as shown on the pictures and fully equipped (there is really all you need - and more!) The lake completes the swedish summer dream. Thank you very much!

Fantastic house, quite garden & beautifull lake. We enjoyed a lot the forest, the blueberries, the red houses, Stockholm & Gripsholm Castle, not so far. Kids were free & happy. Johan & his father gave us all information we needed and were fully available. The house was well furnished. Basic bathroom and toilets. A perfect place for relaxing holidays. "Summer Dream" is the correct expression! We will always remember this lovely place.

We spent wonderful days in Johans summerhouse. We were warmly welcomed by Johans father and if we had questions we were always well supported. The place is very idyllically surrounded by nature. We would recommend this relaxing place each. Many thanks

We had a great stay at Johan's summer house and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a summer break in the Swedish country side with the beautiful setting of an old traditional farm house. There are several buildings, which house up to 10 or so people in total, but its also great for smaller groups (we were only two and just used the main house). We picked blueberries in the forest and made jam from the black currents in the garden, swam in the lake every day and grilled in the garden. The house and kitchen is stocked with everything you might need. The interaction with Johan and his family was very helpful and straight-forward!
