Description

This spacious, rustic, cosy house is well situated. lose to shops, bus and beach (1 km). Go kayaking in the most beautiful archipelago in the world or visit the rock carvings at Vitlycke, UNESCO World Heritage. Kayaks and wood-fired outdoor tub are included.

Spacious, rustic and cozy log house well situated in quiet Grönemad just outside Grebbestad center in Bohuslän, West Sweden. No fancy luxury. Its ruff and, sometimes, a bit worn out.

Here you can glide silently through the water in a kayak, camp on deserted beaches and enjoy the midnight sun early in the summer, spot seals and stargaze. During off-season you can go lobster fishing, eat oysters, walk by the sea, sit by the fire and enjoy the stargazer view in the outdoor hot tub a quiet cold night.

Frankly, this place is the perfect love nest.

It´s 10 min walk to the sea (1 km) = a few minutes by bike and the same distance to the center. The house is quite private located in the area. Natural plot with lots of raspberry plants and outdoor hot tub. Grebbestad is famous for its delicious oysters. We also recommend you to try the shrimps, crayfish, crabs and lobster.

Shops, restaurants (Telegrafen and the fishing boat Donalda are the best ones), café, grocery stores, cinema, fish shop, liquor store (Systembolaget), etc. are open all year around in Grebbestad centre (1 km from the house).

if you like scuba diving there are a couple of dealers around Grebbestad. Look up "Dyk-Leif" in Hamburgsund. A great place for scuba diving is Väderöarna (Weather Islands).

There are lots of things to see along the coast. Some nice places are Fjällbacka, Smögen, Vitlycke rock carvings - only 7 km from the house (UNESCO World Heritage), Väderöarna and Kosterhavet National Park. You can reach Oslo by train in about 4 hours, Stockholm in 5-6 hours and Göteborg in 2,5 hour (everything is quicker with a car). There are connections between Göteborg and Grebbestad that makes it quite easy to go here by train and bus.

It is nice to come here in the autumn to go on lobster safari with "Everts Sjöbod". In september Grebbestad celebrates "The Oyster Day". The outdoor tub is best to use when its cold outside.

The house has two small bedrooms (for 3 persons) with one bed 160 cm wide, one single bed. There is also a large sofa for extra guests. The social areas are quit large. One bathroom. Glass doors leading out to a sunny patio with outdoor furnitures. Fireplace and guitar. On the mountain/hill at the backside of the house there is a beautiful wood fired outdoor hot tub with a amazing stargazer view. Its great to sit there in the night, eating oysters and drinking something good. It takes about two hours to warm up the water since its fire wooded. Fully equipped kitchen but no dish washer. Grills in two different sizes and a hammock to hang out on the patio. Four sun beds.

We have two kayaks with rudder you can use (Prijon Seyak and Seabird) and two small wagons for walking the kayaks to the sea by foot (1 km). If you have a roof rack you can take them on that, with a cloth in between. Kayaks can also be rented at the Kayak Centre in Grebbestad or at Grönemad beach at Skärgårdsidyllen. We have 4-5 bicycles of various sizes and conditions you can use.

We seek an environmentally friendly way of living. You need to recycle and compost all food left overs, paper, plastic etc in this house. The house is mostly built from recycled materials, which adds to its charm but also gives it a patina and makes it slightly rough and rustic. Bed linens and towels are included but I am grateful if you wash them on the quick programe in the washing machine before you check out. OBS! You need to do a basic cleaning before checking out. If you dont want to clean yourself you can buy the cleaning for 100 euro.

Since we live in Gothenburg, 160 km south Grebbestad, we have engage a local woman who meets you at the house.

Welcome!

The house and its surrounding. Two kayaks. Outdoor equipment. Bicycles. Water. Electricity. Wifi.

The contact will mostly be through email. Its not often we have the possibility to meet you at the house since we live 160 km south Grebbestad, so instead we have made an arrangement with a local woman who will meet you by the house and give you the key and help you with questions etc. She also runs a kayak rent out.

Grebbestad is well situated on the west coast of Bohuslän. Its very popular during summer and it is famous for its delicious oysters. There is a beautiful archipelago by the coast.

The house is well situated on a small hill. Its a "wild" and rough building plot with some cultivation boxes and raspberries. We use the house as a getaway so you will see our stuff. Anyway, we try to make it as tidy as possible regarding to the possibilities of storage places!

Its easy to get here with public transportations. It takes about 2,5 hours from Gothenburg. Change to bus in Tanumshede/Tanum. Walking distance from Grebbestad bus station or Grebbestad church (10-15 min).
Of course you will be able to see a lot moore of the coastal line if you have a car. The public transportations are rather poor but there are bus lines going along the coast. Look up Västtrafik on the web.

Book this house it if you seek something close to nature, rustique and cosy. Its NOT a fancy, luxury house. Some things a a bit worn out.

The house is every bit as described by Linnea, who is a very friendly and helpful host. Communication with her was easy and quick. We enjoyed the outdoor watertub which was a real experience, especially since we were a bit out of luck with the weather. The indoor shower could do with some improvement. Grebbestad is a lovely spot and well situated for outings. You get everything in the nearby shops and the bakery is delicious!

Grebbestad is a great place to stay, with an excellent bakery, a splendid fish shop and a micro brewery! Linnea's log house is characterful and cosy, from which it is a pleasant short stroll to the harbour. We brought our own kayaks and enjoyed exploring the fabulous coastline and myriad of rocky islands, picnicking on and swimming from isolated sandy beaches. Marcus, who met us when we arrived, gave us some good tips on the places to visit. The coastal nature reserves are really worth exploring on foot. The ancient rock art around Tanum is extraordinary.

Great neighbourhood with easy access to the beautiful coast. Fresh fish and all supplies easily available in Grebbestad. Having the kayaks is a real bonus for exploring, specially with all the safety equipment included in the house. The house itself is really easy to relax into with that great hot tub. Just be prepared to plan your soak; its 's not like turning on the hot tap, but heats up very efficiently . Linnea's friend did all the checking in and explaining and was lovely to talk to with good information and assistance. Really helpful to have a car to make the most of the area.

Very nice location, close to the village and beach ,with plenty of space around the house with very nice own herbs and fruits in the garden. Spacious cosy lodge, we immediately felt at home. We also enjoyed the bikes, cycling to Grebbestad and the surrounding villages. The house is exactly as on the pictures, maybe even better :-). Everybody will for sure love this place, so just book and enjoy! Next to this in Grebbestad you will find a superb bakery!! Great for breakfast!

Such a great place to stay, a real Swedish experience, can't recommend this place highly enough, lovely & cozy but also really spacious, comfy & the best equipt kitchen I've ever had in a holiday house! We are a family of three & our 4 year old loved it, could easily fit a family of 5 comfortably. Kitchen is great for preparing all the delicious seafood in the area particularly the oysters!! The house is in a lovely quiet, secluded and smart neighbourhood and close to the coast and shops in Grebbstad. We had a car for our short stay which meant we could get around the area & see all the sights really easily as they are all within a short drive & there is so much to do, needed longer. Cycling in the Kosters was a real highlight & the rock carvings. We didn't meet Linnea in person but communication was immediate & the key lady & her husband were lovely. This is a place for adventure, food & relaxing in equal measure. The hot tub was the perfect place to see out the long days of mid summer, really didn't want to leave & now want to go back! Go ahead & book you won't regret it!

Linnea's house was great for us. It had a lot of space and the outside area was perfect for breakfast, grilling etc. The communication was very good with a friend who showed us everything. Overall, a great place to stay in Grebbestad and Sweden's westcoast.
