After a long day’s travelling we arrived (a couple of hours late) to the warmest of welcomes from Ron who served up ice creams to our two boys. The house is quirky and delightful and dates from the 1950s, with an open plan living room and kitchen, two small double bedrooms and bathroom inside, covered porch, comfy outdoor seating area, covered courtyard with a further stand alone twin bedroom plus a private garden with barbeque facilities, dining area, wild strawberries, herbs and a hammock.
The house is in a small community of similar summer houses with a quiet lane leading down to the beach. It’s very safe and child friendly and we were happy to leave all the windows open on a hot summer’s night.
The house is slightly ramshackle with lots of added on bits and a good use of recycled windows and pallets but this definitely adds to its charm. It is very homely and lived in with mismatched bedding, retro decor, toys and a well-equipped kitchen with a few food essentials. We were invited to eat and use anything we wanted. There is also television and wifi if you need it.
If you’re looking for a pristine holiday let with no evidence of the owners’ presence, then this might not be for you. However, if you’re looking for an authentic Danish summer house experience in a unique and characterful house then this is the ideal spot. My youngest said, “It doesn’t feel like we’re staying here, it feels like we’re living here” which really sums up what we want from an airbnb. We had only booked three nights but we’d all love to come back again and stay longer.
