Hiking- or Biking Holidays: Hiking-Holidays: You like to go biking and that´s what you can do in Halland during 9 months. Discover the so-called Hallandsleden (a 380 km long hiking path where you follow the signs) along Halland´s coast. On the way you come to huts and fire-places where you can prepare your food. When you have seen Hallandsleden, you can continue with Skåneleden, which is in the nearby province Skåne. That´s the part of Sweden where Nils Holgersson started his travel. You choose how far you want to hike, for instance from Hovs Hallar to Torekov 10 km, from Båstad to Torekov 23 km). Biking-Holidays: You prefer go biking? Then go along Ginstleden (total length 200 km), which takes you all along the coast from Laholm nearly up to Gothemburg, where you can discover a lot about Swedish nature and visit at the same time the towns Halmstad, Falkenberg and Varberg.

Hunting or Fishing Holidays: Hunting-Holidays: You were always dreaming about going hunting in Sweden? Every year, thousands of Swedish people go hunting. Take part in this event.

Fishing Holidays: You love to go fishing and some day you want to get as much salmon that you can take some fishes home? Halland is the right place for that. Here fishing is so common that you won´t stand alone at the river, but can exchange your fishing experiences with a lots of Swedish fishermen.

At Mellbystrand and its surroundings you can fish in 3 rivers (the nearest one at a distance of 3 km), 3 lakes or on the sea.

When you book a course, you can book accomodation in a single- or double-room.

I was only 10 years when I passed my first vacation on this place because my parents bought this summer-house. Many wonderful vacations followed. The gorgeous beach, many leisure possibilities, big dimensions, nature all around made me move here in 2005 in order to start my language and yoga school.

Monika Hornig purchased this house in 1971

My guests say this house is 'typical swedish'. There is so much space, big living rooms. The big garden invites the children for playing and the wild rabbits can pass by as well.

Even if the house is situated in the centre of Mellbystrand, it´s very quiet and in some minutes you reach the beach by foot. In case it´s windy, enjoy the sun in the dunes or in the garden.

In the house you find everything you need.

Could have been better

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2009
  • Stayed: Jul 2009
The house though in a lovely location was disappointing. We have two young children and the description of the house detailed a washing machine. As this was one of our requirements we were rather shocked by Monika informing us when we arrived that yes she did have a washing machine but it was not working and was not plumbed in. She also informed us that the house does have a kettle but she had given it to some other holiday makers who were staying in a cottage in the garden of the house. The coffee maker which she suggested we use instead did not work we then discovered and had to be held manually the whole time the water was coming through.
The shower is in the middle of the sitting room and dining room meaning that you have to enter and exit the shower in full view of the other guests staying with you. We were with some friends and you just had to laugh about it.
The advice also describes that there are 4 bikes available, we only ever found one.
The worst thing however about the house was the dirt. The crockery in the kitchen cupboards were very sticky and dirty, the pots and pans were dirty and some stuff was mouldy. There were also silver fish alive in the cupboards (a horrible insect). One of the double beds had two mattresses on them which did not fit the bed and therefore you ended up with a big lump running down the middle of the bed and the double sheets did not fit which Monika had advised us to bring. The mattress was covered in sand and crumbs and the floors were filthy.
There was no little bar of soap in the toilet and no towels. There were mo tea towels provided though we did find some stuff in a cupboard in the sitting room though again these did not look clean.
There were no instructions regarding how to contact a doctor or where the nearest hospital was or what to do in the event of an emergency. I also cannot recall that there were any smoke detectors.
We were disappointed with the house and will not be returning.
Owner's Response: The washing machine didn´t work that day, but the guests got the offer that my neighbour would do their washings anytime. They were only asking if there was a kettle, but as they arrived with 4 hours delay the shops were closed, but my neighbour would have bought one if they would have said they really need it. She would have changed the coffemachine if they would have told her, because I was not there any more the next morning. I gave them an introduction of 40 minutes, but they were not asking for a hospitals adress.
The bikes are not included in the rental, must be ordered and paid extra.
I explaned the guests before arrival which kind of sheets they need and they should have known that towels and tea towels are not included in my house (but they could have got some if they forgot them and would have asked for them)

Mellbystrand is called 'the Swedish bathtub', because the gulf stream is passing this bay and the water of the sea is always warmer here than in other regions. The house is situated in a typical quarter of summer houses, which were built already 100 years ago, when tourism in Mellbystrand started and the tourists came from all over the country, by train to Laholm where they took the horse cab to come to the beach. The little houses close to the beach are witnesses from this time and maybe this makes the flair why many Swedish people from all over the country come to pass their summer holidays here each year as well. You won't forget this holiday and you will always come back to this place.

Other Activities: Jogging-trails (2,4 or 6km) in the forest 400 meters away

Golf: Golf-Holidays: You cannot find as many golf courses anywhere as you find in Halland. Swedish people are famous for playing golf and that´s why they dedicate their time at it nearly all the year around. There is a pay and play golf court in 3 km distance, further golf court (18 and 9-hole) at a distance of 8 km, 9- hole or 36-hole at a distance of 10 km.

Ski: Ski holidays in Halland: Even in wintertime we have a lot to offer. The nearby mountain Hallandsåsen is a big skiing area with several lifts and a snowboard-area. Go ice-skating. Enjoy the international people in the restaurant or make i picnic in the big hut with a lots of other families. You will even meet many Danish people skiing here.

Notes:
The house is funished with typical Swedish furniture. The shower is built in a big wardrobe in the living-room because the architecture of the house didn´t permit another place in order to build a whole bathroom. On the lot there is another house which is rented out at certain times when the owner is not there herself. But as the lot is 1400 square meters, very generous and green and each house got its own garden furniture and equipment and there are 3 parking lots on the lot, you won´t see this as a problem. Usually the guests are happy to have another family next door they can talk to and exchange their experiences with and maybe the children play basketball together in the garden or football on the football court 300 m away. You even have the possibility to rent both houses at the same time in order to make holidays with your relatives or friends (place for 9 persons totally).
