Newly built architect-designed cottage on the island of Tranholmen in Stockholm. The house is located about 20 meters from the water with a bathing bridge. Stockholm city is just a few minutes boat trip away. Perfect for people who want to relax!
“The location is beautiful, we enjoyed staying in the little cabin and even enjoyed walking around the small island itself. It’s very tidy and well kept, you have everything you could possibly need (fan, fridge, coffee machine, induction cooking, even a dishwasher and a washing machine). It was overall a comfortable space to be in. Stockholm is only 8 minutes by the 81 boat away (and then another 8 on the t-bahn to the central station) which is very convenient, and the schedule is easy enough to work around, but do note that you can only buy tickets on board (as travel isn’t counted in the SL passes), the people working on it are very friendly.”
Perfekt hus (15m2) på sjötomt, 500 meter ifrån brofästet. För dig som jobbar, studerar i Stockholm city eller norr om stan, älskar natur, lugn och skärgårdsliv. Huset ligger på den bilfria ön Tranholmen i Danderyd, en ö med gångbro nu, 1 november tom 1 april. Färja går ToR tunnelbanan "Ropsten", tills risk för is, och tar 8 minuter. Huset ligger nära stan, universitetet, KTH, Karolinska, Kista, Solna, Sundbyberg, Täby, Lidingö. Ön är 3 km i omkrets, har 200 hushåll, 400 invånare.
“The place is beautiful and the little hut very cosy, quiet, clean and comfortable. Everything one may need is there and in perfect working order. Going to and coming from work across the water by row-boat (which, over six weeks, was entirely at my disposal, complete with lifejacket and everything necessary) has been my best commuting ever, good for body and soul. Otherwise the connection by Stockholm's public transport, which includes an easy ferry (where you can get to know other friendly "islanders"), is also excellent. Charlotte and Kenneth are really nice, good people and ever helpful hosts. I miss them already. Only two minor points of note about the hut need mentioning: 1. it is small and more suitable for an active lifestyle than for a day in; 2. it may occasionally feel not very private, even if Charlotte and her family are never less than respectful and attentive, due to its situation and the aspect of its windows. But I found these peculiarities easy to adapt to. It felt like home and living here was wonderful.”

The bathroom is shared, you also have full access to the kitchen. Nearby there is food shop, sushi and many nature places. The price includes clean towels, sheet and wifi.
“Francesco's house in not central, but it is well located as we can be in the centre of Stockholm in less than half an hour. It is well kept, tidied and very clean. Francesco seems to be a very nice person who is available to help you whenever you need it, for example, by giving you several suggestions of places to visit, how to get there and any other useful information. He is a very good host and I would not mind staying there again. I only met his wife once, but she seemed to be very nice, too. And despite having also another guest besides me, the house was very quiet. I do recommend Francesco's home.”
