Daniel Ang purchased this villa in 2010
The light indoors, the sunny situation on the hill, the views and the closeness to Stockholm made us love the house from the very beginning. Our son, 5 at the time, "chose" the house for us, because of the large apple tree in the front.
Great location and host!
We arrived late afternoon at the house due to flight being delayed for over 6 hours. The house was welcoming, with fresh flowers and fruits, spotless clean. Daniel was very kind to leave us not just fresh breakfast items for next morning but enough good for a light dinner that night. It would have hard to make it out of the house with 3 younger children.
Neighborhood is great, with great short local walking trips, grocery stores close by. Easy access to transit to go downtown/attractions.
Would stay there again if visiting.
Great place. Very nice and hospitable hosts. Wonderful view of the sea and castle. Spacious, well furnished and well equipped . Children friendly. Groceries store nearby.
My family enjoyed our 4 days stay.
Wow! My husband and I cannot thank the owners, Daniel and Begona, enough for providing the perfect house for our family’s summer visit to Sweden. Throughout the booking process, Daniel was extremely pleasant and responsive; he even managed to assist us in finding a neighborhood babysitter for our one-year-old daughter while we were staying in Sweden. When we arrived, the house was even prettier than the picture, with a fantastically renovated kitchen and a terrace looking out toward the Baltic Sea. Daniel and Begona had provided “emergency food” of bread, meats, cheeses, fruits and juice so that we didn’t have to rush out to the grocery store when we arrived, as well as a bottle of Daniel’s own Stocksund Cider, which was a delicious treat. They also provided us with a very detailed and extremely helpful set of instructions for the house, although they didn’t hesitate to answer when we called them with questions about how to use the washing machine, for example. Their home overall was extremely well-maintained and full of beautiful Stockholm summer light, and is situated very near the Baltic Sea, with a wonderful biking/running/walking path about three minutes away. Although it is possible to do without a car, we found that it made getting to the grocery store and going into Stockholm much quicker, especially because we have a young child with very little patience. Daniel and Begona were just the nicest people and we felt privileged to have the use of their house for two weeks. We would wholeheartedly recommend this property and the owners for a wonderful escape!
Stocksund is located 6 km north of Stockholm, just by the sea, the inner archipelago area of the Baltic Sea, Stora Vartan. It's peaceful and beautiful with many sea side promenades, beaches, and other nice sights to see.
