General overview

Welcome Welcome to the West Coast of Sweden! You will be staying in our home, built in 2011, 300 sqm, suitable for up to 8 people (6 proper beds + sofa beds). We have 4 bedrooms, and should you need we could arrange for extra matrasses. Our house is spacious and comfortable, the kids love to play football in the garden or table tennis inside. The kitchen, dining area and library is one big area and we love to have friends and family over for dinner. There is one big porch with a great barbeque in connection to the kitchen and two terraces upstairs, one from which you can watch the sun set over the ocean. Our home is situated 20 km south of Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden's second largest city also known as the most friendly town in Sweden. The beach is a five minute walk down the road, with the unique archipelago outside. There are several other beaches within walking distance. We have a sauna by the beach which we share with some neigbours, lovely for all times of the year. In summer, it is light almost 24/7. We use professional cleaning for our home. If we make a simultaneous exchange, we normally pay our cleaning fee and our exchange partner pays for their. If doing an Globe exchange we kindly ask our guests to pay for the cleaning service which is approximately 85 Euro. Sometimes, with experienced home exchangers, we agree on that they do the cleaning themselves. Close to many beaches Amazing archipelago Close to Gothenburg which is a lively city with lots of restaurants, bars and interesting history Close to lush forests Copenhagen (Denmark) and Oslo (Norway) are 2,5 hours drive away The seafood around here is amazing! Car exchange possible.

The space

Our house is very comfortable and welcoming. It’s located in a quiet street that leads down to the beach. We have four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen which is the heart of the house and connected to the living room, the library and the big sun deck where the barbeque is. There is a large space upstairs where there is a Playstation and ping pong table for the kids (and the grown up kids). There are also two porches upstairs. We have just re-decorated the guest room, to become more of a living room for the kids and their friends to hang out. There is a sofa bed in there where 1-2 people can sleep. We could also arrange for more beds/mattresses if you need.

Guest access

Our guests have access to the entire house as well as the sauna down by the sea (needs to be booked in advance as we share it with our neighbors).

Notes

Here is a suggested bucket list for your stay: - Stroll down the road to the local beach for swimming, jumping of the jumping tower or fish for crabs (if you have younger children, this will keep them busy for hours) - Spend some time in the sauna which is just by the jumping tower down at the beach - Explore the other beaches around and decide on which one is your personal favourite: Örsviken, Nordreviken, Korshamn, Kyvik, Malevik, Kullsvik or Skalvik - Explore the unique archipelago - we will be happy to assist in where to go and how - Take a bike ride by the ocean on the railway embankment which is now used as a bike path to Gothenburg, whereof the first 10 km is right by the ocean - Take a bike ride on the same railway embankment but going south 5 km, have dinner at Blomstermåla (www.blomstermala.se) and watch the sun set - Hike/walk/mountainbike/do some trail running in the nature reserve of Sandsjöbacka - Try SUP or kayaking in Askimsviken - Yoga by the beach - Try "Flying yoga" at Hagabadet, ancient spa down town Gothenburg - Visit Haga, the old worker's quarter in Gothenburg, and check out all the little neat stores and eat over sized cinnamon rolls at Café Husaren - Visit our amusement park Liseberg, and bring out your inner child - Have the famous shrimp sandwich at Heaven 23, a restaurant on the 23rd floor with a great view of Gothenburg - If you haven't seen an elk yet, do some elk spotting in Slottskogen (great park in Gothenburg, no entrence fee, right by the bus stop 4 stops from our house). Great playground for kids! - Are you visiting in the summer but keen on trying cross country skiing? This can be done in Kviberg in Gothenburg which is an inside arena with snow all year round - Jump on to one of the Paddan Boats down town Gothenburg and get at guided tour on the canal and inner harbor - Bring a picnic to Älvsborgs Fästning (also known as Elfsborgs Fästning just a short ferry ride from down town Gothenburg), a fortress located on an island in the harbor entrance of Gothenburg.

Learn more at www.elfsborgsfastning.se - Have lunch at "Lilla Spinneriet", a nice restaurant and café in the middle of nowhere, 15 minutes' drive east from our home.

We are open to any destination in the world. Some of our most exciting exchanges have been to destinations we didn’t know anything about until we got the request for exchanging. Right now we are extra curious about Japan, South Africa and Canada outside Europe and always Switzerland, Spain, Austria, France and Croatia in Europe. We will consider all requests though! Long weekend trips to any destination in Europe is interesting as well.
