Main house has 8-10 beds in 4 bedrooms, guest annexe has 4 beds (max 12 guests)
We are part of an Anglo-Danish family and spend family holidays in our summerhouse but there are many weeks when the property is available.
Anita purchased this House in 2010
Why Anita chose Gilleleje
The panoramic views across the water to the cliffs of Mölle in Sweden are really stunning. The house was built by our grandparents in 1936 and we are very fortunate to be able to enjoy it with our families. We can enjoy all the delights of the beach scene, the local fishing villages and resort towns, bicycling around the neighbouring coastal villages, and cooking with amazing local produce, as well as spending time in and around down town Copenhagen - often all in the same day.
What makes this House unique
Our summerhouse enjoys beautiful sea views and has plenty of space for children and guests to live very comfortably. It is an outstandingly beautiful place, yet easily accessible from Copenhagen.

Amazing views, perfect location and layout!!
Our family of 12 people ranging from 2 to 72 stayed for a week at the end of the summer. We had amazing weather and had litterally one of the best vacations of our lives. Anita is very responsive and helpful . The house is perfect and the layout of the main house and the guest cottage were just what we needed. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is plenty of room for kids to play in the yard although there is a slight drop of as the home is slightly elevated from the ocean. The very best things about this house are the beautiful interior design as well as the gorgeous views. We loved sitting outside with a glass of wine and Staring at the ocean. The views of the ocean and Sweden in the distance are panoramic! The regular sailboats in the distance dont hurt either:). The town of Gilleleje is a cycle ride away where the shops and beaches and bakeries and restaurants are so quaint. We would recommend this property to anyone and would love to go back!
Julie I am so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your holiday at Solkrogen!
Amazing 5-star Danish Summer Experience
We searched for a high-end functional and fabulous place for 4 kids, 4 parents and 4 grandparents, and we couldn't have found a more wonderful spot than Solkrogen. A truly charming Danish summer home with the most spectacular sea-view and large versatile grounds. Everything oozed modern, practical design and we cooked at home every night (thoroughly enjoying the 2 dishwashers). It's a real home, so we found everything we needed and more - lovely bikes for most of the family, toys, games, garden games, books, beach towels. Our team took turns on the piano and the ping-pong table, the kids roamed up and down between the garden and the football pitch, and they had a movie afternoon when the rain descended. We all had a fabulous time, rain or shine. 4 bedrooms in the house and 2 in the modern annex meant the grandparents could rest undisturbed. And the friendly locals helped us find the best blackberry patches and swimming spots. Easy drive or off-road bike ride to lovely towns, where we sourced copious amounts of delicious fresh and smoked fish.
All in all this is a perfectly versatile and delightful property that feels more like a home than a rental property - managed by a very responsive owner. Highly recommended for big families!!
Relaxing Summer Holiday
We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful home by the water. It was the perfect base to relax with family and explore the local area that had a lot to offer for our young family members (age 3 and 5) as well as the older ones - great food, local beaches, castles and Louisiana (as always a highlight). Copenhagen also within reach for a day out (only an hour each way in the car). The owners were very helpful with recommendations for our stay and looked after us during our stay. It truely was a dream holiday in a stunning family home with everything you need to make yourself feel at home. We didn't want to leave! We hope to be back one day!
Claire I am so glad you and your family had such a wonderful holiday at Solkrogen! Thanks for staying - Anita
A great summer vacation in a beautiful house!
In this oasis of peace and nature we enjoyed our holiday in Gilleleje with the whole family. This house was amazing. So light and spacious, beautifully designed and nicely decorate. The kitchen and bathrooms were great. The bedrooms were spacious and perfect.
Lots of toys and animation films for the children. Even a swing and a climbing rack in the garden.
We also used the annex which was great. Cozy and spacious.
The house has a great terrace on which you can enjoy the sea. The view is awesome.
There were quite a lot of walking paths around the house, giving you access to the beach and bits of forest and you could even have a very nice walk all the way to Gilleleje!
We had a great summer vacation. This house offers every opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings. We wish this house was ours!
Thank you! I'm delighted you enjoyed staying at Solkrogen so much and had such a wonderful trip.
This is a beautiful place to stay. Our family loved it.
This is the most wonderful place to stay. We have looked for a long time to find this exquisite house. Both the house and the annex are great. When entering the house you're immediately greeted with the sweeping views of a modern house and Øresund. The house is very cozy and still modern. It's well equipped with everything you might need. We're looking forward to renting it again next time we're in Denmark. Anita is so nice and gets back to you immediately when you have questions.
An amazing getaway
Quiet, incredible views, walk to town through a beautiful seaside path, charming fishing village with good restaurants. The house is clean, well maintained, including the guesthouse. Plenty of fun things to do in the house and on-property to keep small children busy. Just a few steps from the beach. It was perfect for our family reunion. What an incredible place!! I hope we come back someday.
Thank you - we're so pleased you enjoyed our holiday house and had such a great trip!
