The space

Central GUDÖ

Welcome to experience the Swedish nature just outside the door.
This is a beautiful and unique cottage of 93 s q m, tastefully decorated in four rooms and a great kitchen for a big family or friends travelling together.

During the cold season the cottage is warmed up with underfloor heating, radiators and Air heat exchanger, plus a stone stove in the living room for a more cozy feeling.

In this very charming all year round cottage, from the 19th century, with original windows and solid wood floor, you can feel a real Swedish breath from the old times.

The cottage offers two levels with a sleeping space up to seven people. A great get away place.

The Master bedroom has a double bed for two people. In addition bedroom there is two single beds.

There are two parking spaces and there is access to an adjacent freestanding sauna with a secondary space.

Take the advantage of two worlds during your stay. Live in a rural idyllic place, but with the vicinity to the metropolitan buzz to Stockholm. You are only 15 km from Stockholm/ 14 minutes by bus. The public bus to-and-from Gullmarsplan, in Stockholm, leave frequently every day.

Gudö belongs to Haninge which is one of the largest archipelago municipality in the county. Haninge is also well known for the National park Tyresta, and its monuments from the Viking age. There are also beautiful historic castles that you can visit and have lunch / dinner.

The 3800 square meter site is a child-friendly natural site, and often frequented by deers (and elks, periodically).

Gudö is unique with its rural idyll near Stockholm. There are paddocks, hiking trails, canoe routes, bathing beach (500 m) and rocks (250 m) with the fishing opportunities. Gudö is under expansion, giving the area an exciting architectural mixture of old and new buildings/times.

Welcome to a rural Gudö, with Stockholm's pulse around the corner.

We had a really great time with friends at Camillas place. The house is very nice, has a big garden with grill and fire place. The neighborhood is very quiet, there is a lake 5 minutes by walk, and also 5min to the bus stop, if you want to go to Stockholm. The owners are very nice, we had good contact and I hope to come back in the future.

We had a great stay at the lovely house in Gudö. In fact, it looks like in a storybook. It's the perfect location if you like nature around you and still would like to see Stockholm's sights. The bus connection was very good. The house is equipped with everything you need and shopping facilities are not too far away. Thank you Camilla for the warm welcome and your explanations!

Very nice house, spacious and child-friendly. Close to Tyresta national park, the archipelago and a beach. Stockholm is also not too far away but we realized that there are enough interesting things to do in the close vicinity so we avoided the crowds. Camilla was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions on what to do. We can warmly recommend that place.

Our stay at this lovely cottage for 10 days was perfect! The house is very closed of the description with all needed facilities inside. Camilla and her husband gave us a very warm welcome and tons of useful information about public transport and interesting place to visit. The location is perfect with all you need to go to Stockholm (25min in public transport) but when you are at the cottage, you feel really at the country side. We highly recommend this place if you want to discover the Swedish way of life and wonderful people.

Before we went to this cottage we often looked to the pictures and read the feedback of other visitors. The information was correct and we had a very nice stay in the cottage with our four children and the boyfriend of one of our daughters. We arrived a bit too early, but we could already enter the house and met Camilla's husband Anders that wellcomed us. A bit later Camilla arrived and offered us some nice chocolates. Very kind.

Response from Camilla:
Dear Els, I am sorry that the shower in the sauna was not tidy, during your stay. It is assumed that the Guests using it, also clean up after themselves, which, unfortunately, not everyone seems to do :( We have now cleaned it. Speaking of the dryer... we had gladly received this information during your stay so we could helped you. We have now checked it and it seems nothing wrong... so it seems, unfortunately, that you had bad luck during you stay. Thank you for staying with us. Take care. Br Camilla

Me and my friends loved the little red Swedish house! It is close to Stockholm and at the same time directly in the city. Thanks also to the kind support, Camilla!

jag är en fyrabarnsmamma och tvåhundsmamma ;) med höns och några små stugor att ta hand om på Gudö. Jag och min man flyttade hit för 17 år sedan och blev fullständigt förälskade i området, de gamla husen och dess säregna karraktärer. Med åren har familjen utökats och likaså stugorna. Vi började med uthyrning för några år sedan och idag är det min huvudsysselsättning; att vårda och sköta stugorna och se till att våra gäster har det bra hos oss, samt att ta hand om den egna stora familjen givetvis. Vi tycket själva att Gudö är en rofylld och harmonisk plats att vistas på och många, många av våra gäster har tyckt detsamma - och trivts jätte bra. Vissa har till och med återkommit efter några år och själva bosatt sig i området, så numera är vi heltids grannar :). Vi försöker bemöta gäster så som vi själva skulle vilja bli bemötta när vi åker på semester och hyr en stuga av någon, och jag tror vi är ganska bra på det... ;) det viktigaste är att vara välkomnande, lyhörd och tillmötegående - då löser sig allt och alla mår bra och det är det absolut viktigaste! I bland händer saker som inte ska få hända, men då får man försöka göra sitt bästa för att lösa det, det är så man överlever... och vi lever än ;) Vi värnar också om att gästerna ska få vara privata och få lugn och ro när de bor här, för ofta är det så man önskar ha det när man semestrar någonstans, och Gudö är en rofylld plats för både kropp och själ. Här finns naturen, vattnet och fågelsången inpå stugknuten men ändå har man det sociala utbudet inom räckhåll. Här bor man lantligt men inte ensligt.... och kanske... träffar man älgen. Välkommen!
