It was really THE place to be in Kalmar. Nice small house with 2 bedrooms and all necessary supplies. Very quiet area, near the center of the town. Rickard, his wife and Lio (the dog) were very welcoming.

Lovely and clean and a great location. we didn't meet our host, but he was always available for any queries. Breakfast at The Swan hotel was delicious and about £8 for a great buffet and a lovely view. just 2 min walk away. lovely swimming pier 5 min walk away. also amazing pizza takeaway - one of the top ten. huge choice including dairy free. Only slight downside is we had to make up our own beds. would definitely recommend

Very good stay in a typical swedish house. The veranda is very pleasant. 20 min by walking from the center (railways station, castle,..). Rickard is very helpfull.

Rickard was a very kind host. His family is very friendly, too. When we arrived, the home had everything ready (including the sofa bed) for our large family. The guest house is on a very quiet street next to a park and a scenic shoreline. It's also just a five minute drive from downtown Kalmar and the castle. Overall, it was a great experience.

Rickard and Linda were super friendly and easy to communicate with. He was helpful with local information. We booked this place for the extra space and the laundry facilities. Both were much appreciated. We did request a crib and a floor mattress was provided. This was tricky with our 18 month old, but it worked out. Location is close to the main center. We didn't walk there as we had a car, but it was not far. The house is decorated really cute in what appears to be traditional Swedish decor. Beds were comfortable and the linens were fresh. However, linens were an extra fee, which I'm sure is listed, but we didn't realize this. We then had to pay in cash for the fee. This was somewhat inconvenient as we didn't have local currency so we had to find a bank. It's too bad this can't be added onto the original reservation or charged to the original form of payment to eliminate this extra step. We were able to park our rental car in a private spot and Rickard was accommodating as we asked to leave laundry drying past our check out time. Great place for kids with a box of legos in the house. Wifi worked great. It is a very light and airy place. If you are needing to adjust to the time change or need it dark to sleep this place does not offer blackout shades. We would recommend this place to friends and appreciate the "local" experience that comes from Airbnb.

Response from Rickard:
About the linen i have mentioned this to airbnb but im sorry that they havent solved the problem. Im going to put in a text when the booking confirms about the linen. About the blackout shades. We have Ikea blackoutshades in Both bedrooms so im surprised to read that we dont have any. best Rickard

Rickards House is very near to the old city of Kalmar. Also a place for a bath is very near to the house. The house was well equipped and Rickard was very helpfully. We enjoyed only a short one night stay at the cottage.

Very nice holiday house with all we needed for our family of four. It is in a quiet part of town that is walk-able to the centre of Kalmar, which is a very nice town with great shops, cafes, etc. We explored Oland, went to the beaches, etc - which was wonderful. Rickard and his wife were very helpful and friendly, all communication was great.
