About the property

2 bedrooms, 4 persons, fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, barbecue

Experience the ambience of over hundred years ago, in the unique cosy 'Oakhouse'; Original features such as thatched roof and much more are coupled with modern discreet technology such as dishwashers and current hygiene facilities. Oakhouse is one of the few original farmhouses that are found on Ærø. The exceptional location, protected on the upper half of the 'Egebjerg' (Eichenberg), a hill on bike route No. 90, 7 km away from Ærøskøbing with a view of the Danish South Sea complement the special atmosphere.

The building of Oakhouse was restored in authentic style by the famous Danish architect Alan Havsteen-Mikkelsen, whose father, Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen, lived in the neighbourhood and a well-known painter, and used as a backdrop in a comic book about the legend of Søbygård (the water tower and former mansion, now a museum).

Oakhouse is furnished with typical antique country style furniture and has a large south garden.

Lease terms and conditions

1.The lease contract is binding on both parties, if the 1st instalment is paid. The contract is signed between the landlord and the tenant for the duration of the lease period specified in the contract and includes the house mentioned in the contract with everything that belongs to it.

2.The rent is normally paid in 2 instalments. The 1st instalment (the deposit) will be due no later than 5 days after receipt of the contract. The 2nd instalment is due 30 days prior to arrival at the property. Travel insurance is not part of the contract. The obligatory final cleaning is paid along with the second instalment. If the accommodation is booked under 40 days before arrival, the entire lease amount, including service charges, is due within 5 days of receipt of the contract.

3.The lease extends to the number of persons indicated in the lease. With the signature the tenant declares that he is authorised to represent the participants listed. All the persons listed out are liable as joint tenants for the execution of the contract.

4.The lease is on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. Only during holidays and the days outside of peak season can exceptions be made. The lease starts at 4pm and ends at 10am. In case of early arrival and takeover of the rental property, no claims can be made such as for final cleaning.

5.The tenant is, during the lease period, responsible for the house and is committed to careful handling of the acquired property together with the furniture that may only be used as part of the agreed contract. Any damages incurred have to be replaced.

6.The number of persons specified in the lease must not be exceeded without prior consultation with the landlord. Caravans and tents must not be placed on the rental property.

7.Pets, especially dogs and cats, may be brought only with the written consent of the landlord.

8.A deposit of € 100 per week will be charged. The deposit is a security for key, final cleaning and utilities. The deposit will be settled with the surcharges and transferred back to you within 14 days after your departure, so long as the house had no damages and was left in a neat and clean condition. If the deposit could not cover any possible damages to the difference amount should be paid by you within 14 days after receipt of the invoice. The deposit is the 1st instalment of the rent which is payable.

9.The tenant is obliged to notify the landlord or agent immediately about any possible damages incurred on the property. A late notification gives the landlord the right to make you liable for even further damages which the tenant bears due to the fact that the successive tenant exerts price reduction or replacement for the damages caused. After the end of the lease period the house keys are to be handed over at the same place where they were received.

10.The tenant is liable as per the contract to maintain the rented house clean and leave it in a clean swept and tidy condition upon end of lease. Should this not be the case, an additional charge of at least € 50 will be collected for extra cleaning. The tenant is not permitted to transfer the mentioned cleaning duties to a third party.

11.Any possible complaints need to be made at the resort immediately or within 24 hours after detection of the defect. The tenant may demand rectification, but must give the landlord a reasonable amount of time to take remedial measures. If the corrective measures are not taken within a reasonable time, the tenant has the right to reduce the rent amount.

12.Telephone complaints must be reported immediately to the landlord in writing.

13.Late complaints will not be accepted by the landlord and are not entitled for compensation.

14.After termination of the leasing term, complaints, against the landlord, can not be alleged.

15.No guarantee can be given against the appearance of insects, wasps, earwigs etc. The landlord or landlord shall ensure that immediate corrective action is taken as far as possible.

16.Is the tenant more than 3 working days in default of payment, the landlord shall be entitled to terminate the contract immediately and without notice and rent the property to a third party.

17.A possible cancellation of the lease must be done in writing and is valid from the date of notification.

In this case, the following cancellation charges will be payable:

Up to 49 days before lease begin: 10% of the rent

Up to 35 days before lease begin: 30% of the rent

Up to 21 days before lease begin: 60% of the rent

Up to 14 days before lease begin: 90% of the rent

otherwise (less than 14 days before lease begin) 100% of the rent.

The landlord can then rent the property to a third party.

18.The tenant is always entitled to transfer the lease to another tenant by agreement and consent of the landlord.

19.The landlord can, if compelled by force majeure, in war, strikes and similar cases, terminate the lease with immediate effect. The landlord in this case is bound to reimburse all the money paid by the tenant. Any claims can not be made beyond that.

20.The invalidity of any individual provision of the lease does not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.

21.The prices fixed by the landlord are subject to change, since rate fluctuations, printing errors etc. can not be excluded. Inaccuracy in the offer and prices entitle the lessor to withdraw from the contract.

22.All possible legal cases involving the lease are negotiated with the Danish court in Svendborg.

Ruhe pur....

  • 5 of 5

Wenn jemand vom Alltagsstress runterfahren will, dann ist er hier richtig. Das urige Bauernhaus versetzt einen zusätzlich noch in ein anderes Zeitalter. Dennoch ist alles da was man braucht. Die Ostsee in ca. 500m ist gut zu Fuß erreichbar oder aber auch einer der Strände in Ærøskøbing, Søby oder Marstal.

Wir haben es genossen!!!

Tolle Lage, sehr netter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Alle Angaben sind mehr als korrekt: Das Ferienhaus ist wunderbar aufgeteilt und sehr gut eingerichtet. Schon morgens in der Küche kann man den Blick auf das Meer geniessen. Der schöne und große Garten lädt zum Austoben und Erholen ein. Der nahe Strand bittet zum Baden...

Ein fantastischer Ort zum entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als Familie mit zwei Kindern (6, 10 Jahre) nun schon das zweite Mal an diesem fantastischen Ort um unsere Seele baumeln zu lassen. In wenigen Minuten ist man am ruhigen sehr schönen Strand, direkt hinter dem Haus gibt es schöne Wege zum spazieren gehen mit Blick über die Insel. Das Haus ist gemütlich eingerichtet, hat einen schönen Garten und der Kontakt zum Vermieter ist unkompliziert und sehr herzlich. Daher uneingeschränkte Empfehlung von uns. Familie Böhm, Hamburg

Wunderbare Ferien auf Aerö

  • 5 of 5

Oakhouse ist ein wunderbarer Ort zum Relaxen, ein "unverbasteltes" traditionelles Zuhause unter gepflegtem Reetdach, ideal für uns zwei Paare (und einem Hund). Ausstattung, Aufteilung und Ambiente sind genauso - nein besser! als es die Fotos prognostizierten. Morten und Petra haben hier ein Idyll geschaffen, sauber und sehr wertig ausgestattet von den bequemen Ledercouches im Wohnzimmer bis zur Geschirrauswahl. Mit Liebe und Geschmack eingerichtet und in Alleinlage auf einem großen Grundstück kann man fast neidisch werden, dass ihnen dieses Domizil gehört. Wir haben uns ausnahmslos wohl gefühlt!

Frühstück mit Meerblick und dann ab nach draußen auf den tollen Golfplatz oder zu Fuß über den Küstenwanderweg nach Aerö. Das Haus sehr ruhig und dennoch zentral. Die Insel ist traumschön und im Mai recht leer. Aerö ist natürlich Touristenmagnet und zum Bummeln ein Vorzeigeort. Wir waren unter anderem im Addis essen und haben uns auch selbst verpflegt, ein komfortabler Grill ist auch vorhanden. Wir können dieses Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen!

Morten versorgte uns mit Informationen und stand für Fragen zur Verfügung.

Die Buchung der Fähre könnte entschieden einfacher sein, im Netz war es auch nach zahlreichen Versuchen nicht möglich, wir mussten doch tatsächlich zum Hörer greifen und es telefonisch regeln!

Oakhouse is located few metres away from a sandy beach, with views over the sea and the green islands of the Danish South Sea, near Ærøskøbing with paved streets and picturesque houses, Marstal with the remarkable maritime museum and Søby with Denmark's most beautiful golf course, which is bordered equally on three sides by the sea, in the north of the island, are all easily accessible and worth a visit.

The maritime tradition of the island is still alive in the larger ports, where old sailors meet and watch the arrivals of the ferries. The entire island is crisscrossed with bike routes, and wonderful peaceful walks are possible anywhere.

From all the shores of the island you can fish for trout, flounders and cods, the beach (one of the few sandy beaches on the island) just in front of Oakhouse is suitable for swimming. For birdwatchers, the nearest of the various bird sanctuaries is only 2 km away, the large RAMSAR site is about 10 km away. Many migratory birds make their stopover here during spring and fall months.
