The Måsens Havsbad accommodation on the west coast of Sweden stands for relaxation, simplicity and pure nature. Unnecessary luxury was deliberately avoided in the wooden house in order to revive the cozy hygge feeling far away from mass tourism.
Natural materials such as wood and glass were used in the holiday home and the furnishings were deliberately reduced. The nature is not only visible inside, but above all with the wide view and the life on the terrace. Due to the exposed location directly on the sea with its own shore, the weather is an everlasting natural spectacle. The little house is not in a holiday complex, but on the headland of the small fishing village of Lerkil. On three sides the guests see the sea, the harbor and cliffs; on the back are the houses of the neighbors who live there permanently.
The hosts are Ulrike and Detlef Rahe, who live nearby, who both work as designer: in and architect: in. The house was built in the 1920s and once served as a simple overnight cottage for a former restaurant. The hosts bought the house and the 5,000 square meter cliff property 20 years ago and expanded the house very carefully. They decided to rent out their summer cottage when they were not in use.
The place exudes great tranquility with a 270 degree sea view, plus a beautiful harbor and a bay with a sandy beach. Anyone who can read the sea knows exactly how the weather will change and can prepare for breathtaking sunsets, for example. In summer, the sailing boats virtually cross in front of your own property. A morning begins with the awakening of the seagulls, followed by the gentle lapping of the waves against the smooth cliffs or the sound of the churned sea.

ArchitectureThe house has a simple, honest architecture. Almost only natural materials were used in the timber construction, which were used by local craft firms. The large property is completely natural. The renovation of the existing older building was carried out carefully: The outer walls and the roof were retained, the floor plan, interior fittings and the terraces where you can always ﬁ nd a sheltered spot were added. Today the house has two mirror-inverted rooms, each with a double bed and a loft bed.
EnvironmentThe careful renovation of the house took place using recyclable materials such as wood. The compact house with its small footprint was optimally used so that each room offers enough space, but at the same time not more than necessary. The property with cliffs, heather, juniper and aspens has been laid out in its natural state and is maintained without the use of chemicals. There is a separate deep water well on the property. In the property, garbage is strictly separated according to the Swedish principle and leftover food is composted.
Well-BeingThe sauna with a view of the harbor is a highlight. The Kattegat sea area and the archipelago as well as the view of the open horizon ensure a very special Scandinavian Wellbeing. For all guests who want to be active, there is a multitude of possibilities: Bike tours, horse riding, golf, hiking in the fantastic nature (forest, meadows, cliffs), culture, cities (Gothenburg, Kungsbacka, Varberg), swimming, sunbathing, relaxing, reading by the fireplace. However, the hosts recommend enjoying the simple life in and around the house and leaving everyday life behind.
