  • Peace and space, also for my dog (Pomeranian)
  • Swimming pool and sauna in the house
  • Quickly and easily accessible
  • Two floors, space for children and parents

My trip to Denmark and my stay in this vacation home on the Baltic Sea were simply unforgettable. The fresh sea air and the breathtaking sea view I had right outside my door were truly magical. The dunes and the endless walk on the beach made it a perfect place to just unwind.

The peace and quiet and the open space were another highlight. My little dog, a Pomeranian, had as much fun here as I did. He could romp in the dunes and we enjoyed extended walks on the beach.

The cottage itself was excellently equipped. The indoor pool and sauna provided the perfect opportunity to relax. The fact that it was on two floors allowed my children and I to enjoy our privacy.

The location of the house was very convenient, just a short drive from many attractions. And getting there was also a breeze.

Overall it was a perfect vacation and I can’t wait to return here again!
