DREAM HOME ON THE WESTCOAST, FANTASTIC VIEWS, DOCK AND BOAT HOUSE

Orust House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 5+2 (fold out sofa)

The home is perched above the ocean with views all the way to Gullholmen and Karingon. Below the house is a dock and a comfortably decorated boathouse. You may want to put some of the chairs out on the dock for an afternoon shrimp party.

There is a large tube to float around on (it’s great to tie it to the dock), and two kayaks one small and one large.

The upstairs level of the home has two large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom with heated floors. In between is a lounging area with computer table (although it’s a bit difficult to get any work done here due to the incredible view), seating area with a sofa that folds out into a queen size bed, a book case, flat screen TV and a Bose sound system.

There are two balconies, one on each side of the room. Depending on the time of day, one or the other is usually in the sun and the other one offers shade. The smaller one faces the ocean, to the left you can see Karingon and to the right Stocken’s “diving tower.

The downstairs has one bedroom and a newly renovated bathroom with a large “rain” shower head. The TV room has an L shaped sofa, a flat screen TV and the DVD system will play DVDs from all different “world” zones.

The living room has a spectacular view over the archipelago and Gullholmen! Sink into the comfortable sofa and get lost in the beauty of Sweden.

There is a breakfast area for 4 in the bright kitchen. A Miele dishwasher makes clean up easy. The dining room has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to the outside (yes, with a beautiful ocean view). The dining table has “inserts” that can be added and can seat 12 or more guests. The veranda outside the dining room has teak furniture for dining and sunning.

There is WiFi.

Below is a “cellar” with 2 Miele washing machines and 2 Miele dryers. There is also an extra fridge that can be plugged in if necessary.

Although this home is mostly used as a “summer home” it’s been constructed for year around living and has been used throughout the whole year. Although the summer is stunning here, the spring and fall seasons are both exquisite. And the winter is a writer’s paradise; quiet, peaceful and serenely beautiful.

Stocken is a small “fishing village” on the very west/north tip of the island of Orust, on Sweden’s west coast. In the last 20 years it has become one of the most sought after locations for summer homes, although a lot of the homes are passed down through generations and never come up for sale, so it’s quite rare to be able to buy a home here.

Sweden’s West coast archipelago is legendary as thousands of boats of all sizes crowd the harbors. The difference between Stocken and most of the other villages is that Stocken is very much in the middle of the “happenings” but still secluded. With Gullholmen just a few minutes to the north, Karingon a short boat ride to the west and Mollesund and Halleviksstrand to the south, you can choose to surround yourself with the crowds, or relax on your dock in Stocken with a bit more peace and quiet.

Stocken has a wonderful fish store, where the fish is so fresh it’s sometimes still alive when you buy it. They also have all sorts of delicacies, as well as fruit, vegetables, bread and of course the Swede’s favorite; ice cream on a stick.

Next to the house a small path meanders through a wooded area, if you take a left at the end (a couple of minutes’ walk) it takes you to the beach and Stocken’s diving tower. The tower, with the house in the background, has been featured in many books and magazines.

Right before you enter Stocken there is a campground with mini golf, mini mart, kayak rental and a restaurant/pub where a lot of famous Swedish dance bands perform. At “Tofta gard”, a walking distance away, one can enjoy concerts, and a golf course is also nearby.

Stocken is about a 30 minute drive from the town of Stenugnsund, approximately an hour from Gothenburg. Oslo can be reached in a few hours by car, or train.

This was a wonderful property, and was everything (and more) it was described to be. The house is beautiful, highly functional, and includes everything needed for a large family to enjoy. The view is spectacular and the village is lovely. The owner and people who see to the house were friendly, helpful, and responsive. This is now my favorite place to visit. I would highly recommend this rental.

Many Thanks for a Fantastic Vacation in the most Wonderful house in the Best location.

We have enjoyed the view, the house and the surroundings every day. We have seen everything from Goteborg and Lysekil to the cliffs and forrest, far from houses and people.

A local thought we should return during the summer, but we don't think a "late vaction" could have been any better.

We'll be back without a doubt.

All the best,
