Only 30 minutes from Stockholm city center and 60 meter to the sea, this newly renovated bungalow on a small car free island is the perfect getaway in the archipelago. Take a dip sunny days or read in front of the fireplace on cloudy days!

A bungalow with 30 m2 indoor, an outside area under roof, and a garden with a table for summer dinners. The house is recently refurbished in a light scandinavian style.

Best for 1-2 persons. If you have a small kid it will also work.

December month the ferry still runs traffic to the island and hopefully all is snowcovered. Jan-march we have ice if we are lucky. If your keen for an icewalking experience please contact us and we'll open up for booking. From april the 6th ,spring is coming, the ferry opens up for traffic and you can book as normal again.

Summer: You are welcome to relax, read, swim or fish from our jetty.

There are two old but functional kayaks with splash covers and safety-vests that you are welcome to borrow.

If we are around we are happy to meet you and take a cup or coffee if you would like and give you ideas where to go and what to do.

We are about 150 people living permanently on the island of Storholmen and we have lots of other friends that stay for part time of the year. Really a place to relax for yourself or together with a great friend.

It´s a small island with some nice walking to explore the small houses and gardens and the mystery castle. Summer months june-september it´s nice to take a swim in the water. From end april to end october the fishing around the island is good for pike, perch and pikeperch.

To do
Most of our guest prefer to just relax for the first days and then they are of to discover.

Stockholm - the Capital of Scandinavia, is on most of our guests agenda. Activities, museums, shops or the scandinavian cuisine. Old city or more relaxed Södermalm, roof walking, the Vasamuseum or Skansen are top visited attractions for our guests.

The archipelogo. By kayak, rent a boat (motor or sailing) or take the archipelago ferris, really a world class experience. In summertime a stop in the archipelago hub Vaxholm is a popular day excursion. If you really want to get some serious fishing done we recommend Catch & Relax guided tours.

Lidingö has some great forest and is the home of the worlds largest cross-country run Lidingöloppet. Easy access with 5 minutes ferry or boat ride. There are some museums such as the MIllesgården worth a trip if your into bronze sculptures. Some people enjoy walking Lidingö just to check out old an new architecture.

Bogesund is our little wilder forrest 5 minutes to the east with boat or ferry. A nature reserve with trails, old oaks and castles. We spend a lot of time at Bogesund for chantarelles, flower watching as well as cross country running or mountain biking.

If you are looking for water activities kayaking around our Island is pretty good. The fishing is also of good quality in the waters nearby.

If you are in for any other swedish experience we are quite good on them. I do some work with tourism experiences and might have some good ideas for you.

If you get of from Arlanda Airport. Take the Flybuss (cheapest) or Arlanda Train (fastest) to Stockholm Centralstation. From Skavsta Airpoirt take the flybys to Centralstation and if you land at Bromma Airport get a flybuss or take a cab to central station. If you arrive by train you probably also will get of at the Central station.

From the Centralstation you take the red subway to Ropsten or a cab.

From Ropsten just under the bridge going to Lidingö you get on the ferry to Storholmen. It takes about 25 minutes and departs 6 times a day from the 16th of April to the 6th of january. Best is to get of at Storholmen Norra.

Note. If you take a cab use Taxi Stockholm (phone number hidden), safest and best price. Many other might heavily overcharge you.

If you arrive later than 17:30 check with us and we´ll help you find a good travel plan to the island

If you come by boat or kajak we have a jetty. (about 4 m depth)

If you come by car, you can park at Lidingö (Mor Annas Brygga) We´ll provide you with our parking permit.

Summertime (Ice free season, mid april-january)
To get to and from the island, easiest is to take the ferry from Ropsten or Mor Annas Brygga. Other options are to go with us or our neighbors to Mor Annas Brygga at Lidingö or book a boat taxi with Lotta´s Boat.

The Storholmen ferry goes between Storholmen - Lidingö - Ropsten about 6 times a day. Make sure to check the latest timetable because they do change 4 times a year. This is the easiest way to get around.

Wintertime (Ice season, january- mid april)
A cap of ice is normally surrounding the island so that we can go anywhere, as long as you have the right tools, friends and knowledge. It is ice walking times. Get or borrow icesticks, try a swedish kick or get a lift with us on the snowmobile. Possible sometimes also to book a transport by Lotta and Milan with their hovercraft.

The connections to Vaxholm is possible but it´s about 1 1/2 h by public transport or 30 min by private boat or boat taxi. Or a nice 10 km walk or cycle ride through the forests and open fields of Bogesund the Naturereserve.

Our restaurant Storholmen Sjökrog offers local basic and good cuisine and drinks. Offseason sept-may open most fridays - sundays, high season all weak. That´s where you´ll meat the locals and get to know the secrets of the island.

Note that we live on an island and you can´t get here by car. The car can be either parked at Ropsten or at the Mor Annas Brygga or somewhere else. If you park at Mor Annas Brygga we can provide you with a free parkingcard.

We don´t have a store on the island. If you like to stock up before arriving we recomend COOP at central station in Stockholm. If you arrive by car or prefer to take a cab there are some nice shops at Lidingö Centrum.
