About Marcus Eklöf

My name is Marcus and I live on the property where the cottage is located together with my wife and our two children. I was born and raised on Gotland and find the location quiet and calm with just enough to offer.

Marcus Eklöf purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Marcus Eklöf chose Visby

If you are exploring Gotland this property is a perfect place to have your base. It is located just outside the noise and happenings in Visby, but still close enough for a possible visit by foot, bike och taxi if one chooses.

The northern coast contains lots of beautiful places to walk, swim and eat.

The cottage itself offers possibilities to cook on your own or use the outdoor porch with its own barbecue.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is on the outer rim of Visby. It was a personal quest to find a house with a big garden and a walk-able distant to and from Visbys central parts. There are walking- and biking pavement that goes directly into Visby from the house. The location is close to Visby but at the same time surrounded by nature and fantastic trails.

Good basic accommodation

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was adequate for our needs during the Island Games. It was ideally situated on the Games bus route although we did walk the 3km into and back from Visby a few times.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable cottage. The owner's are very friendly. We had a wonderful 2 week stay this summer, and loved every minute of it, much thanks to this cosy little cottage that had everything we needed. Close to Visby (we had a car), and the wall. Biking distance if you prefer that. If we return, We will definitely stay here again.

Gemütliches Ferienhaus für 2 Personen

  • 4 of 5

Wir fühlten uns vom ersten Tag an wohl in diesem Ferienhaus. Alles Notwendige war unserer Meinung nach vorhanden. Vor allem die Küche wirkte irgendwie gemütlich, wir hielten uns gern darin auf. Trotzdem der Flugplatz in der Nähe ist, hörten wir kaum einmal ein Flugzeug. Im Gegenteil - das Ferienhaus ist mit viel Natur umgeben und jeden Morgen wird man von Vogelgezwitscher in den Tag begleitet. Wir können das Ferienhaus jederzeit guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.

Car: recommended

The cabin is located in the outer rim of Visby town. That being 3 km from the city center. There are walkways that go directly to the airport (8 min walk) and Visby (25-30 min walk). The closest supermarket is a straight 2 km by walkway from the cabin. The neighborhood is a quite and simple one with old houses on large forest plots converted to gardens. By crossing the main road one arrives at a nature reservation where one can follow "the road of health" which leads into the reservation of to Visby. One could also keep going straight to the ocean (3 min walk to view, 15 min walk to the beach). Along the coast there is a boardwalk that goes all the way into Visby harbor.
