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 or snowy days!

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

There are two old but functional kayaks with splash covers and safety-vests that you are welcome to borrow. There are also two canoes where you can paddle together.

Interaction with guests

If we are around we are happy to meet you and give you ideas where to go and what to do.

Other things to note

Our restaurant Storholmen Sjökrog offers local basic and good cuisine and drinks. Off season sept-may open most fridays - sundays, high season all weak except Mondays. 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 you can park for free 48 hours and than just move your car a meter or two for another 48h session. .

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 for basic shopping and Fältöversten by the subway stop Karlaplan for some higher quality shopping. If you arrive by car or prefer to take a cab there are some nice shops at Lidingö Centrum.

thats a perfect summer house with a lot of things to do on Storholmen or in the near area around the island. Christian is a perfect host!

Beautiful little cabin right by the water. Great location to do an island, but still have access to the city, though boats finish early evening. We loved going for a late evening paddle in the kayaks. Communication with Christian was very smooth and he was always willing to chat and give suggestions. He was also flexible with our timings. Definitely recommend it for a quiet few nights outside of the city.

We had a wonderful stay at Christian's cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and had amazing water views. The cottage had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. It was easy to get to via ferry, and the ride was beautiful. The island is extremely peaceful and relaxing. Christian was very responsive and helpful. Really couldn't ask for more- our favorite Airbnb experience!

We had 6 wonderful summerdays in this lovely house. We enjoyed eating outside and watching the sunset every evening. It is a lovely Island with friendly People. In the house you have everything you Need and it is nicely decorated. We felt comfortable and very welcome. The communication with Christian was very easy and we enjoyed meeting him and his wife in the garden for a little talk sometimes. It is simply the perfect place to stay if you like to have some calm and Relaxing days. we have been to Stockholm two times and it was easy to go there with the Ferry. We can also recommend to visit the nice Restaurant on the Island - nice Food, Drinks and ice cream for hot summerdays. Also use the canoe or the kayaks- it is fun ;)

The bungalow was unbelievable! We loved every second of our stay. Our fave part was talking to Christian about Storholmen and the servers at Sjokrog about their love for the island. The cabin was perfect- clean and perfectly suited for two people. The views were awesome and it became a peaceful retreat for us for five nights. We loved canoeing around the island and cooking Scandinavian dinners at home. 5 star stay!

We really enjoyed our time on Storholmen very much! The little red house was the coziest place to forget the everyday life and relax. The view over the sea is amazing, especially at sunset time! A special highlight for us was the fireplace. All rooms was very clean and well equipped, and Christian and Johanna was very friendly hosts and helpful in all matters. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is a big fridge, a freezer, hotplates, two different coffee machines, a water heater, microwave and owen and even a toaster. Worth a visit is the restaurant Sjökrog at Storholmen Östra (attention: it’s not open every day). The food selection is rather small, but the taste is excellent. Because there are no cars at the island it is very quiet, and the few residents are very friendly. We will definitely come back some day! Good to know: * There are no shops at Storholmen so you have to buy your food in Stockholm. * You don’t need any cash in Sweden, it is all payable by card (even in the taxi or restaurant).
