A historic Swedish summer villa, originally built in 1914, continuing to deliver unforgettable experiences.

Villa Midnightsun is a home full of ideas and inspiration. The Scandinavian interior style, spiced with jugend, original from when the house was built, is handled to a beautiful mix, while being functional and modern answering to modern day’s guests demand.

The sunlight glitters through the old oak trees and enhances the feeling of nature being present even indoors giving each room its own magic.

Vaxholm is one of the most popular islands in the Swedish archipelago. Spending an evening in the beautiful garden overlooking the water and enjoying the boats driving by and simply enjoying the moment. Villa Midnightsun will be a great option for 2-3 families!

The layout of the house

Spacious country kitchen, two living rooms with fireplaces, a library, a dining room and two verandas, both with sea views. Upstairs you have 5 bedrooms with 10 beds (of which one extra bed). You also find a newly built, generous bathroom with a rain showerhead, floor heating, dual sinks, and a washing machine and tumble dryer. There are two additional separate toilets and another washroom upstairs.

You’ll find traditional Swedish tiled fireplaces in nearly each room (as well as electric heating, although very rarely needed summertime) The kitchen is made for culinary adventures either with your family or for a private chef to cook you an extraordinary meal. The kitchen table seats 10 people comfortably.

The greenhouse is a very romantic setting, specially made of old windows, and has grape- and tomato plants inside. Also in the greenhouse there is room for 10 persons around the table – nice for a lunch, a drink or a late evening supper! Outside the greenhouse you find the kitchen garden with fresh herbs. The garden is large, altogether 5000 sqm and you find roses, lavender, peonies as well as wild flowers of all kinds. For the children there is a beloved playhouse and swings of course.

A small motorboat is included in the rental to be able to enjoy the Stockholm archipelago from the water and appreciate all the beauty it has to offer. Boat experience required!


The location of Stegesund is only an hour by local ferry to the centre of Stockholm with boats trafficking several times a day. It is easy to go to Stockholm and back in a day. To the small town, Vaxholm it is only a 10 min boat ride, with the local ferry or with your own boat. Important to know is that Villa Midnightsun is located on the island Stegesund which is only accessible by boat. We are happy to assist in transportation to the villa, and there are two local ferry’s going directly to the island several times a day.

Known for its herring fish, defense of Stockholm for over 400 years and its historic fortress, Vaxholm is a special place to enjoy local sights and Swedish culture. A picturesque island with many traditional Swedish summer houses to be seen.
