Nous avons passé une superbe semaine en famille dans la très belle maison de Christina. Elle est située dans un quartier très calme et la vue est splendide. Sa situation, à la frontière de l'île de Tjörn et de l'île d'Orust, permet de visiter facilement l'une comme l'autre. En outre, la météo nous a gâté : soleil toute la semaine.
La maison est spacieuse, la terrasse aussi. Toutes les facilités sont prévues.
Merci à Christina pour le chaleureux accueil et les excellentes infos sur les curiosités de la région. Il est toujours agréable d'être accueilli de cette façon. Christina a pris le temps de discuter avec nous à notre arrivée. A noter aussi que Christina a toujours répondu rapidement à nos questions par mail avant notre arrivée. Merci !
A recommander !
This house is difficult to review. We stayed for 9 days in Christina’s house. We have stayed in vacation houses pretty much every summer. This was our first in Sweden.
We loved the views. We loved the location and the upstairs of the house. The location is in a quiet neighborhood and with nice walking paths to boat slips, swimming and kayak launching area. The island Tjorn is great with a lot of good shopping, food and outside activities that easily occupied our days. There are great organic farms, dairies and butcheries on Tjorn and Orust. The BBQ grill was a great addition and we apparently were the first to use the new, nice kitchen (yikes!).
The house itself fell short of our expectations. We would have appreciated knowing the condition of the basement (the downstairs) before booking since we had two people sleeping there. Also would have been good to know that the bathroom is in the basement. The toilet is on the main level. The pictures do not convey the layout, clutter or the mold smell encountered in the basement. It is a large, single room with 2 beds, open to the upstairs, with doors to the laundry, shower/sauna, locked storage, more storage, and extra furniture. There are 2 windows in the basement. The one in the photo, by the fireplace and a smaller one in the opposite corner. There are no curtains on the windows. There is a fireplace and radiator heating. The radiator is next to the fireplace. We could not get either to actually heat the room since the generated heat rises straight up the staircase to the main floor :0(. Due to these conditions, the basement room really wasn’t a space we could relax in, in privacy. Sleeping there was a bit difficult if people were moving around upstairs or up and down the stairs. The house is described as being for six people with 3 bedrooms. We think in reality it is comfortable for four people between the 2 bedrooms upstairs, although kids would probably be fine in the basement.
We still had a nice time and will be back to Tjorn and Orust again.
Christina was really sweet and welcoming to us. We enjoyed the house during New Year vacation and it was definitely the place to be! The house has an amazing view over the sea, the neighborhood is really quit and the place is very clean! Moreover, for the first time with our airbnb experience, it is a place that worth to stay inside. You find yourself in a comfy and silent home. Thank again Christina for your trust and for letting us get into your little piece of paradise.

We had a lovely stay at Christina's house. The view was stunning and the location in Tjorn was perfect for a relaxing break.
The house is spacious and well kept and very comfortable. The garden is big and the off street parking at the front of the house makes unloading with a family very easy.
We loved the large open plan kitchen/ diner/ living room and we had a very comfortable holiday. I would love to stay there again in the future.
Christine popped in to check that everything was OK and her son was very helpful during he booking process and emailed us the GPS coordinates which made finding the house extremely easy with our sat nav.
Tjorn is a lovely holiday destination and Christina's house fits the location perfectly.
About the Host, Christina
Hi, I let my son and first born Alex do the description!
My mom Christina is a very loving and caring person. She is actually THE most kind person on earth! Truth! She works as a nurse at Gothenburg biggest hospital, and that makes me very proud. She is the owner of the house at Tjörn, and manage to keep it clean and tidy, with a little help of her boys :)
