This house is located on Sweden's 6th biggest island called Tjörn. About 35 km from Gothenburg city and 15 minutes by car to the town of Stenungsund.
The house lies just beside a fjord. It has a wonderful open view over the sea and the typical swedish west coast landscape. This place is perfect for summer vacation if you want to experience swedish summer and nature, either with your friends or family! It is only a five minutes walk to the sea where you can swim. And there is also a place here where you can rent kayaks.
During summer, Tjörn is very popular among vacationers and tourists. In the town there is a tourist information center where you can find maps of the island and all kinds of information what you can do here.
The house can accommodate up to 6 people. You will have:
- three bedrooms
- a fully equipped kitchen
- bathroom with shower
- cable TV
Please contact me if you have any questions about the house or Tjörn!
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.

It is an available, joyful, very thoughtful person to his(her) hosts
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.
In general, we spent lovely 14 days in this house.
The stay started a bit with a disappointment, since the house was not very tidy upon arrival (we think there should be a better control on this item) and that in the first two days we changed from rooms without finding a good laying bed/mattress. Therefore we bought two new undermatresses, which guaranteed a good sleep during the rest of our stay (and which we left in the house for new guests).
The weather was superb and we loved the spacious outside terrace and fantastic view.
All together we had a great time at a wonderful location!
Merci beaucoup, Christina!
It was an amazing time at your house on Tjörn. We couldn't believe this beautiful view from the new porch! The house is fully equipped and just perfect for a relaxing time. we could have sit the whole week on the porch and watch the sea, the boats and the nature!
Thank you so much for this special place and gift!
We had a wonderful week at Christinas house!!
One day before our arrival Christina called us and said that the weather will be so good for the coming days, that we should hurry up the next morning and that we can arrive earlier, to enjoy the great weather! She really took care of us and made our stay even more relaxing and fantastic.
When we arrived at the house, it was even more beautiful than expected! She as a completely new huge veranda and front entrance! It looks so great and makes so much fun to grill (with her very good Weber Grill) and enjoy the stunning view from the big terrace. She also has very good sun chairs and a huge parasol.. (yes, we had just perfect weather!!!)
The kitchen is very good equipped; there was nothing that we missed. There is also a dishwasher.
In addition there is a big flat TV and even a DVD Player (so you can bring your own movies or watch some of her DVDs).
The water is just a (little bit cliffy) 5-min walk away. There you have a nice area for sun bathing. Remember to bring a brailer for some crab hunting ;)
10-Min away with the car in Myggenäs is a big Almö Livs Supermarket, where you can buy everything you need (open every day from (phone number hidden)). In Myggenäs is also a place where you can rent a small Motorboat or Kayak, which I would recommend for fishing, as it’s not that promising from the waterside.
To put it in a nutshell, I can warmly recommend this amazing house to everyone how wants a calm holiday in a fantastic area. In addition, Christina is a lovely and very caring host!
We rented a nice house by the sea based on the pictures on the website and were completely surprised by what we saw: a house with a new terrace and all in all in an extremely good condition! We spent lovely 4 days in a peaceful area of Western Sweden, enjoyed the view, barbecued, followed birds leaving their nests in near-by trees, went jogging in a beautiful area, hiked down to the pier and went swimming - and played chess on a nice glass table.
Everything was remarkably clean and in very good condition, which made our stay very comfortable and nice. Christine was friendly and explained us everything over the phone. We forgot to take our own bed sheets with us, but she was truly nice and had made our beds by the time we came. THANK YOU for that extra care!
We can warmly recommend the Christine as the host and the house as a place for a very nice holiday in an island connected to mainland near Göteborg. There is a lot to do and see within 10-20min driving distance, especially in the summer time. Perfect for active holidays -but also for relaxing and enjoying the peace.
Warm thanks again. <3
We were 5 students wanting to spend some relaxation time in Sweden by the sea. The beautiful house was very spacious, the surroundings were peaceful and Christina was very helpful. Would definitely visit again! :)
We spent a lovely time at christina's house. the view is absolutely amazing and unique. everything went alright. thanks a lot for this perfect vacation.
