“Alexandra's place is very pleasant with good location and fantastic views. Alexandra is very friendly and helpful. We borrowed her bikes one day and cycled to a swimming beach 6 km away. We had been thinking of kayaking one day, but we couldn't. We recommend Alexandra's place to you who can think of your simple but well organized accommodation.”
The cottage is located on south mainland Kökar in the Åland arhipelago. You get easily here from Åland/Finland with 2 hours ferry. The cottage is on top of the mountain with amazing view of the south arhipelago of Kökar. Fresh cottage, made by famous designer, yet simple living. Run with solar power, heated with tiled stove and cast iron stow. Small private sand beach with bridge, boats, fishing gears etc. Very unique nordic experience.

“Amazing weekend in Kökar We spent a long weekend at the cottage at the end of August. When we arrived we were almost breathless about the cottage itself but also about beauty of the location. The cottage is we very stylish and well-kept. It has wonderful outside decks with chairs and tables as well as a barbecue and a smoker to prepare fish. We spent most of the time outside. Only in the evenings, when it got dark we were lying on the sofa in the candlelight. So beautiful. The kitchen has most of the things you need. Washing dishes you do yourself and to do it properly you have to take a bit effort because you have heat the water on the stove. It was very ok with us because it’s a common situation in cottages in these latitudes. There is a lot sleeping places and we got a very good night sleeps with fresh air coming in from an open window. There is not a double bed in the main building, but we did not mind about that. We liked very much the beautiful scenery, silence and peace of the place. The sea view is beautiful and in the evening there is absolutely no light to be seen except the starry sky above and occasional shooting stars. There are also lots of birds to watch if you like that sort of things. We like. I am writing this already from home. We miss Kökar, the cottage and the weekend we spent there. I guess that it is the ultimate proof that we had one of the best weekends of our lives at the cottage. A weekend that we’ll remember for years to come.”
A cozy and quiet accommodation in Lemland municipality in Åland 20 kilometers from Mariehamn.
“We had great time staying in Eivors cottage. The house was big enough, very tidy. The beds were comfortable and had ironed sheets. There was a big yard in front and behind of the house and as a surprise for our kids, a large football goal and a ball that kept them well occupied. Eivor and Göran were friendly hosts who cared for our comfort. We were all very happy about our stay.”
