This is a unique little house, with separate shower and toilet, a place to write, to live, to love, to reflect.
No fancy things, just what you need to relax in simple life. You can cook, you can read, you can enjoy the surroundings. Time out.
Our annex is rustic and from 1898, so is our mainhouse and we have made a private space for you in our garden where the annex is.. In the traditional part of Hornbaek all houses are very close to each other and that gives a lot of atmosphere.The annex has a sleeping loft (small and not full height) partialkitchenette with refrigerator, separate shower and toilet, small patio with barbecue and afternoon sun - perfect for one person or a couple.
The beach, forest, harbor, shopping, tourist information and public transport are all within 3-5 minutes of walking distance.
In the summertime the beach is full of people enjoying the soft sand and the cosy dunes. Hornbæk is known for having one of Denmark's best beaches, and people travel from far for just a single day here. The coast is very family friendly, and a special beach playground is situated right next to the harbor.
Wind- and kitesurfers love the coastline at Hornbæk, and it is an impressive sight to see them flying over the sea in the wind.
The small town of Hornbæk with its 6000 year-round residents has several restaurants, and shopping is possible 7 days a week all year round except 25 December and 1 January.
There are several good restaurants, both with international but also with the famous Danish cuisine. In Copenhagen you will find some of the world's best chefs, and the greatest number of Michelin restaurants in Northern Europe.
Hornbæk is ideally situated to get to the popular tourist attractions north of Copenhagen: Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk (only 13 km away) and Kronborg Castle in Elsinore (only 12 km away), where Shakespeare's famous "Hamlet" is performed by world-class actors every summer. The beautiful Frederiksborg Castle, Fredensborg Palace and Queen Margrethe's Castle Amalienborg is also so close that they can be visited on a day trip.
Karen Blixen, sthe famous autor of "Out of Africa" has a dedicated museum only 20 km from Hornbaek.
Hornbæk has 7 golf courses nearby.
Hornbæk light is unique, full of beauty and tranquility. Many famous artists and painters have been inspired through the ages, and still do to this day. Summer days are long with lots of light until early morning - and winter invites to contemplation and silence.
Public transport: Bus and train connections to Copenhagen and Sweden is a 3-minute walk from the annexe. It takes 25 minutes to Elsinore with the little commuter train. From there, the coast-train takes you to Copenhagen, the airport and Malmö - or you can take the ferry (20 minutes) to Helsingborg in Sweden.
We are artists and love to use the annex for retreats to live simply and in this way be inspired. Our little house is perfect for quiet contemplation, or a cheap place to be while you spend your time and money on all the attractions.
We live right by ourselves with our children, and we'll do our best to give you the best experience possible!
You have acces to your own toilet and shower, its right outside to your right. See picture. There are two doors.
Interaction with guests
We often welcome guests, but will leave them to have their private experience, you can text us and we will help and guide. But as we live right next door, we will be there for you if anything.
Please enjoy life and have fun. We expect that we respect each other and dont have load music with doors open - after 22.
we have a little dog and it might give a sound, also our kids:-)
Smoking is only outside, use the ashtray. Garbage is right outside up the annex, not the neighbours house:)

I'm a singer and songwriter. I live with my husband and our three children in Hornbaek in the mainhouse, our annex is rented out.
We are a creative family, and love life. We are gratefull for the nature and kind neighbours. We work very random and the freedom it gives is something we deeply appreciate. When you rent our house, we hope you do the same.
