Highlights from Thea

  1. Stay in a cosy skipper's house in the heart of Marstal's idyllic streets
  2. The terrace in the courtyard is surrounded by the scent of roses in summer
  3. It's just a short bike ride to Erik's Hale beach with fine old bathhouses

On the beautiful island of Ærø and in the heart of the old skipper village Marstal lies this cosy skipper house. Here you can stroll through the small streets down to the harbour, enjoy a warm summer evening in the house's idyllic, south-facing courtyard or feel the wind against your face on bike rides around the island, which lies in the South Funen archipelago. Perhaps surprisingly for a house with history, there are a full two metres of ceiling space inside, and the old beams in the ceilings are complimented by bright, calm rooms. The small but functional kitchen has everything you need, and the simple decor adds to the sense of calm. Enter through the romantic courtyard, which faces Marstal's cosy Skippergade, and let the peace and quiet wash over you. The little oasis where the scent of roses spreads in summer is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee before exploring the island or to enjoy refreshments after a long day of adventure. Enjoy being close to the harbour, the pedestrian street and the quiet atmosphere of Ærø as a guest at Skipperhuset. For example, hop on your bike and take a ride down to the scenic Eriks Hale beach, perfect for a summer swim or a cold, brisk winter dip. Here you'll be greeted by a landscape that feels as if it stood almost still in time, with its old, colourful bathhouses lining the shore. Skipperhuset is perfect for those who dream of the full island experience.

    Host since January 2022

    My name is Thea and I am a trained boat builder and outdoor guide. I run Teglværkspladsen (a glamping accommodation) and Ærø kayak&SUP rental and courses. I love the outdoors and enjoy nature - all of which there is plenty of opportunity to do on beautiful Ærø. Looking forward to sharing my lovely skipper cottage with you, see you.
