Saksun is a unique gem. Beautiful and magnificent scenery. The location is fantastic and has one of the most beautiful views of the Faroe Islands. It's the perfect place if you need a quiet retreat with your family & friends or if you want to work where you can get inspiration in the magnificent scenery.

The space
When you enter the house, you get in the hallway. From the hallway you can get to the toilet where there is a toilet, a bath and a washing machine. From the hallway you enter the kitchen, which has a good oven and hob. And from the kitchen you enter the living room with a wood burning stove and a magnificent view. From the living room you can come to the bedroom, which also serves as a cozy sofa during the day. With Bose Soundtouch 20 III you can enjoy your own music.

Outside the house there is a woodfire hot tub, 300dkk extra fee for free use during your stay.
And there is some benches and tables to sit and enjoy the scenery.

There is a barbell and a kettlebell.
If you're into mindfulness, you can use a saw to cut wood to the wood burning stove and the hot tub.
You can also use a shovel to dig a hole in the ground and then dig the soil back into the ground. There is a lot of land on the property.
I have just order "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor E. Frankl on Amazon. So in between digging a hole and sawing wood you can read some thoughts about Man´s search for meaning.

Where you’ll be

Saksun, Streymoy, Faroe Islands

The area in which this house is located is called á Mýruni. This house is from 1869, and is built out of drifting wood from the sea. The last ovner renovated a couple of things during the last 20 years, and we as new owners, are currently working on finishing this renovation. All will be done with the utmost respect for the originality of the house, which we intend to preserve as much as possible.

· A museum called “Gomlu Dúvugarðar”, which is an old farmhouse, is located about 50 m from this house.

There are two farms in the village, and you may see some farming activities during your stay. Since Saksun recieves a lot of tourists during the year, it´s important to show respect for the privacy of the locals, so that they can get on with their everyday life and work. Taking pictures of or filming the locals and their activities always requires consent.

The idea of open our home to nice people around the world is very appealing to us. We rent our house so we can travel more, and that gives us the opportunity to design the life that we want to live.
