About Anita

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.

A great summer vacation in a beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

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!

This is a beautiful place to stay. Our family loved it.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Like living in a Danish fairy tale...

  • 5 of 5

There really aren't words to describe this place, but I'll give it a try anyways:

The setting of this house, situated on a hill above the sea, is something out of a fairy tale. Situated directly adjacent to several miles of seaside forest trails, countryside bicycling paths, and a small fishing village with a classic harbor, it was an amazing experience. The house itself is clean, modern and elegant, recently renovated. Quite possibly the best view in Denmark, the back porch directly overlooks the sea, where fishing boats, leisure boats, and cruise liners pass slowly all throughout the day. Close enough to Copenhagen and Helsingør for fun day trips by car or train, and only minutes to the quaint town of Gilleleje with its restaurants and shops- it's a perfectly located place to stay when visiting Denmark.

The house and its guest house easily accommodated our party of several families, including kids, complete with a well stocked children's playroom and several areas for lounging around and visiting. The piano even got some use!

The owner was kind and helpful throughout the entire process, immediately responsive via email when we had questions, and quick to offer suggestions on how to get the most out of our stay.

We will be back to this home in the near future, without question.

Another fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this wonderful home which was just as good if not better than our first!

Delightful setting, so relaxing but with lots of things to do from shell picking on the beach to football in the garden, riding the bicycles or just watching the water from any number of amazing vistas on the property with a glass of wine.

Thank you Anita!!

Superbly presented waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

The property really is as good as, if not better than, its on-line description and photos. It was beautifully presented and well-maintained, but still a family home that felt welcoming. The owner provided excellent customer service. Good location for exploring the 'Danish Riviera' and the nearby village was a delight with its restaurants, harbour fish cafes and shops. Highly recommended.
