Wonderful home with much character!

  • 5 of 5

Our family with 4 kids stayed here at this charming home, and we loved it! It is spacious with 3 bedrooms and two living spaces. The lofts are a fun bonus too! The boats and kayaks made for a memorable experience - especially getting to feed to local goats on the nearby island every day! The home is close enough to excursions but far enough to feel quiet and secluded. Hosts made us delicious bread multiple times! They also lent us legos for the rainy days! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would highly recommend it!

Die schönste Wohnung, die wir jemals gemietet haben!

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt direkt am Wasser. Die Sicht von der Wohnung aus ist wie aus einer Zeitschrift. Sie ist komplett ausgestattet und sehr geschmackvoll möbliert. Die gastgebende Familie ist super nett. Sie boten uns an, gemeinsame Ausflüge zu machen. Wir nahmen an und haben es nicht bereut.

Alles in allem war es ein rundum perfekter Urlaub. Auf diesem Wege nochmal danke an die Familie. Wir kommen wieder!

Eine sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit und geben Ratschläge für Aktivitäten in der Umgebung. Die Natur und Landschaft ist einfach toll.

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Familienurlaub, ob beim angeln, Bootfahren mit Wasserreifen , Ziegen und Schafe füttern, oder einfach nur die Sonne am Strand von Vinnesholmen genießen. Dankeschön!
