Summerhouse by the east coast in western Denmark (Jutland). Perfect and idyllic place for a family to relax and a good base camp for trips in the area.
Landscapes, westcoast wind and waves, visits in beautiful old towns with second hand shops etc.
Sleeping for 7 persons (possibly 8-9 on fx air mattresses that you bring) in:
One master bed room: double bed (140x200cm).
Two smaller rooms with two-person bunk beds.
One person sofabed in the main living space (by world famous Danish designer Hans J. Wegner btw!).
(IMPORTANT: there are NO sheets/bed linen!)
Newly refurbished bathroom with floor heating.
Wooden house, white interior, modern yet comfy, beautiful and clean.
Heating: mainly by wood stove, wood is included in price.
Water and electricity is also included.
You are welcome to use the 5 bicycles but the condition is not always perfect, so they may need a little tire pumping and oil. Two adults, three for kids in various sizes.
General amenities: use what you find of foods (most general things should be there: salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, tee) and toiletpaper, baking paper, food wrap etc.
But fill up/buy new if you run out, so that I won't be suprised to have fx no sugar next time. Thanks.
Interaction with Guests
Usually only by mail and phone. I live in Copenhagen, so I do not show up for coffee every afternoon :)
Area of summerhouses. Nice bathing, walking/cycling and driving in the area. Playground 100 m from house. with lots of kids in the summer.
The kid friendly beach is 1.3 km from house.
Public transport is unfortunately poor. There are trains to Kolding and a not very frequent bus to Hejls.
Nice area for excursions by car or bike.
Other Things to Note
INTERNET: there is a sim-card wifi hotspot in the house. It has 5GB of data/month which easily covers emails, weather reports and news reading but won't last long for watching Desperate Housewives or updating windows/java/etc.
The 5GB is renewed every month meaning, that users in the end of the month is less likely to have full speed internet than in the beginning of the month.
When the 5GB has run out (sooner than one might think), the speed goes down, but it should still be possible to check emails and (website hidden) with a little patience.
Please be careful and clean after use.
You can use any households you find, but please fill up what you use up, so that the next user will not find himself empty on salt or toilet paper etc.
Pets are not allowed.
The house is a non-smoking area, and I don't like cigarette butts left around the garden.
The house is well located (close to the beach in a calm area) and correctly furnished for 5 persons. The chimnney was very agreable.
Unfortunaltely, it was not very clean and there were 2 bikes unavailable
Assers summerhouse is really nice and cosy. We arrived in a very clean house with a marvelous garden. It was mid august so we could taste the apples from the trees. It is a nice place with children, if they want they can go to a playground nearby, they can take a bike and cycle a bit around or they can play in the garden. The sea is nearby and you can do nice walks or catch crabs. When we were there, there was a stormy weather one night and the next day there were a lot jellyfish at the beach (but maybe that's everywhere in Denmark). The children liked also the guitar in the house :-).
Ribe is a nice town to visit with a Viking center, Legoland is not far away. We went also to Kolding (trapholt), Vejle, Aarhus (Aros!!).
Hvordan anmelder man en person man aldrig har mødt?
Normalt en svær opgave men ikke i Assers tilfælde.
Min familie "to voksne tre børn, heraf to teenagere" har været i sommerhus i det sønderjyske.
Nærmere betegnet i Heilsminde.
Som førstegangslejer på AirBnb var jeg herlig overasket over, at billeder på internettet ikke behøver at lyve, og at sommerhuset fremstod nøjagtig som på hjemmesiden.
Lidt lyver de billeder der alligevel, da de ikke gør huset ret, grundet at virkeligheden denne gang er langt langt bedre.
Og så er det ellers nu, at jeg skriver videre i samme nørkelighed om alle herlighederne.
Asser den mere end hjælpsommelige/sommerhuset/Heilsminde , men dette vil jeg skåne os alle for, og blot strække armene op, sukke, lukke øjnene og lade de positive minder om familieferie velovre, og aldeles gnidningsfrit forhold til Asser gøre resten af arbejdet.
We got all the information we needed from Asser, he answers messages quickly and thorougly, and we had a great stay.
It`s a nice little house with enough room for a family of 6. Quiet neighbourhood with many other small summerhouses.
The house itself was a bit difficult to see when we first arrived as it is surrounded by vegetation.
I would recommend a stay here!
A very nice and child friendly house in a lovely and quiet area.
Quick respons from the owner who gave us lots of information and tips.
Nice garden with a picknick table, we enjoyed our dinners in the sun.
Beach and playground are nearby, legoland less then an hour away and kolding is a nice small city nearby. Here, the museam Nicolai for barn is a recommendation.
We'd love to come and visit again!
We should have stayed longer! We spent five days here and all agreed it was a gem. With our kids aged 10, 7 and 3, Assers' Summer House and lovely garden (trees to climb!), bikes, relaxed local area, playground and beach nearby, was all just perfect for us. It is as shown in the photos. We survived fine without a washing machine. The sink in the bathroom is a good size for emergency hand washing if needed. Asser always answered our questions in a timely way and was very accommodating and informative on all things local. An hour's drive from Ribe for the Viking Center, an hour from Legoland and a short drive from the really wonderful Trapholt museum in Kolding! Super!
Asser's summerhouse is cosy and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. His communiciation could perhaps have been better whilst we were there but overall we were happy with everything.
