Interaction with guests
We could give you directions to the beach, cliffs, boats to Stockholm, what to visit in Vaxholm (15min walk and ferry) or how to get out to the arcipelago with boats and so on.
Most of the buildings in this area are from early 1900. From the beginning it was a place for rich people from Stockholm to visit in summer. Now there are about 50% summer guests and rest of us are living here the whole year. There are no shops on the island but you could go shopping for groceries and other things in Vaxholm. Nearest restaurant is on Rindö, sister island, you could walk there in 15-20min. More restaurants and cafes you could find in Waxholm - about 15-20 walk and then ferry (free of charge) to Waxholm takes 6 min.
2 minutes walk to the jetty on Skarpö where you could take the boat to Vaxholm - about 5 min from Skarpöborg, or boat to Stockholm. From Skarpöborg it takes 1,15h to Stockholm. You could go further out in the archipelago (north and middle parts). It's a 15-20 min walk to the car ferry to Vaxholm, the ferry takes about 7 minutes, no charge. From Vaxholm you could take the bus 670 to Stockholm (about 40min). The buses are going all night to Vaxholm.

We moved to Skarpö three years ago. Leaving Stockholm city for a more quiet life close to water and nature. Spending time in the garden, renovating the house, cooking, reading and taking photos, i am an amateur photographer. Both Charlotta and me are working in marketing and communications, i am freelancing and Charlotta work in Stockholm. Moxie, our dog, has no job. She is still in dog kindergarten at norra Djurgården. We have stayed at a lot of different B&Bs long before AirB&B, going around the world, traveling thru Europe and a couple of Greece island stops. In younger years i was a night portier at hotel Diplomat in Stockholm and a Supervisor at hotel Gisela in Bad Gastein Austria. Now its our turn to try to be good hosts to you. Welcome!
