Additional Location Information
There is a fabulous bakery and lots of stores featuring renowned porcelain in Gustavsberg, just a 15 min car ride away. Once there you can get all your shopping done at the shopping centers which has everything you could need. If you want to go further out in the archipelago you can catch a steamboat by Ingarö church in the summer and go out on a day tour to the famous retreat called Sandhamn in the outskirts of the archipelago.
Close to Downtown Stockholm
It is very convenient to get from our house to the center of Stockholm. Just take local bus 430 X which stops within a 5 min walk of our house and goes directly to the Old Town in Stockholm. Depending on when you go the bus ride takes between 30 min (day time) and 55 min (evenings and weekends).
When you arrive in the city center you can stroll in the area and enjoy the preserved historic center of Stockholm, known as Gamla Stan ("Old Town"). You can take the ferry directly over to the island of Djurgården ("Game Park") where you will find the famous Wasa museum, wonderful parks in the middle of the city as well as popular venues such as the open-air museum Skansen and Prince Eugene's Waldemarsudde. Or take a 10 min walk and you will be right in downtown Stockholm in the middle of the shopping district!

What Past Guests Are Saying
Dream House in the Stockholm archipelago
The title for this place really does sum up the place. We went out on Boxing Day till after New Year Day and it was a real winter-wonderland with the coziest, most functional & picturesque home slapped right bang in the middle of the forest (almost like a scene that you have read/heard as a child, from one of the fairy-tale stories). It is really so very peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle.
The people are very friendly. It is so easy to get to, from airport to visiting Stockholm. The supermarkets are nearby, if you ever need something. We bought enough ingredients to make home-made Nutella cookies to raspberry muffins and even Steak & Guinness Pie; and all next to the wood-burning fire, it is really home sweet home. We would play one of their games every evening with music playing in the background or even watch one of their numerous Dvds that they have stored.
Helena Stahl who welcomed us at the house speaks more languages than I have fingers on one hand, so communication would not be a problem there. She had a hand-book on standby, if you want to get know a little bit more about the home, family or the surrounding.
For example, we did not know that a herd of deer would bark like dogs and yes, we would see them daily through the kitchen window some morning or evening before the sun set! What could be more idyllic than that. The only real downside is that we didn't get to see a proper flurry of snow although, the snow was already there waiting for us knee-deep and the lake had turned into (the most beautiful baby blue) ice, it was more than enough for us. (And oh, Helena even had sledges out, waiting for us to have fun on it!)
And if that's not enough, then they are building a sauna right next to their home. We would definitely come back during the summer months and swim in one of the lakes nearby, along with picnic in hand. I have been waiting for years to visit Sweden, and I already can't wait to go back.
