What's a summer house and what to bring?

The large stock of privately owned summer houses in Denmark form the basis of the summer houses offered to the tourists for hire. The standard is usually quite high, the houses being the second home of the Danish families during their leisure. The houses are full of individual charm and conveniences, and are usually situated in beautiful surroundings, normally close to the seaside. Insulation and heating add to the 'all year round'-use of the houses.

In addition to the rent, you pay for electricity and if you do not feel inclined to set to work with duster and mop at the end of the holiday, there is a bill for thorough cleaning of the property.

The homes can be booked through private rental agencies and some tourist offices. A representative in the area can be contacted regarding the home should problems arise.

What do I need to bring?

Although the houses generally speaking are well-equipped with kitchen utensils, tableware, duvets and pillows, you will need to bring some things:

  • Bedlinen 
  • Towels 
  • Tea towels 
  • Dishcloths 
  • Toilet paper 
  • Kitchen roll 
  • Cleaning products

It might also be a good idea to bring the following things, which might come in handy: 

  • A few staples such as sugar, flour, salt, pepper and cereals 
  • Tin opener
  • Bottle opener

Beach holiday

For holidaying at the Danish coast does not encourage the ticking off of innumerable lists. On the contrary, it is holidaying where lists are binned and replaced by exploration.
