We had a three night staying in this old traditional house from the early 19th century. It`s really charming but also well equipped for rainy days. You can have your breakfast in the garden at sunshine and watch the sunset on the beach near the house.
Nathan is a very uncomplicated and welcoming host.
Nathan always replied quickly to our reservation requests. We felt really welcome at our arrival.
The house has a nice courtyard that the kids liked a lot. We also quickly enjoyed the small beach at short walking distance.
The house was very clean and we found all that we needed in it.
Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und die herrliche Lage genossen. Die Wohnung ist komplett und liebevoll ausgestattet. Frühstücken im eigenen kleinen Garten und die Strandnähe haben den Kurzurlaub für uns abgerundet. Gerne kommen wir wieder. Kleiner Tip von uns: eine Gartenliege wäre toll. Liebe Grüße aus Lüneburg

The house is clean, cosy and it was fully according to our high expectations based on the description. Nathan and Julie gave us a warm welcome, and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Also the landscape and the surrounding are really worth coming back. With children be sure to visit the new built seaside open air swimming area in Faaborg.
We had a very pleasant stay at Strandgaarden in June 2014. Nathan is a great and service minded host. It's a beautiful cottage with a private garden that was a great place to play for our little son. Located in rural sorroundings close to the sea it is the perfect place if you are looking for some peace and quiet but there are also plenty of things to do and see within just a short driving distance from the cottage.
We had a wonderful experience at Nathan's. The old house from 1820 is so charming and cosy. The beach is a short walk away and so beautiful. If you like to ride a bike, Svendborg and Faarborg are close by.
