STRANDWEISS & STRANDGRAU

STRANDWEISS & STRANDGRAU

On the Baltic Sea island of Usedom, a family from Berlin built two holiday homes exactly as they wanted them to be: with plenty of space for children and grandparents or friends, a private wellness area and a garden for playing and barbecuing. The houses are located in the Baltic Sea resort of Zinnowitz. The beach is 500 metres away and can be easily reached by passing through a beech forest. The town centre with its restaurants and shops is also within walking distance. Great importance was attached to sustainability. The timber frame houses are insulated with ecological materials and have untreated larch wood façades.

The buildings are arranged in an L-shape so that each house has private, sheltered outdoor areas. The floor plans are identical except for the different positioning of doors, windows and terraces. Each house provides 140 square metres of space for up to eight people. Special attention was paid to creating retreats and enough space for different activities. The kitchen with dining table, bench and upholstered chairs can be separated from the lounge area with a door. This means you can cook and listening to music, while others watch a film or enjoy reading in the living room without being disturbed — the fireplace is visible from both areas. 

In fine weather, you can eat on the roofed terrace, which is accessed directly from the kitchen. The bathroom on the ground floor is a private wellness area, featuring sauna, rain shower and bathtub with a whirlpool function, underwater light and music that invites you to escape from everyday life. The first floor comprises four bedrooms (three with double beds, one with bunk beds) and two shower bathrooms. The staircase and wooden furniture have been custom-made from solid oak by a carpenter. Linen curtains and woollen carpets create a cosy atmosphere, while the calm colour scheme and straightforward design lend the interiors a modern look.

What to do

Bathing, days on the beach, all forms of water sports (windsurfing, SUP, kite surfing, sailing), thermal baths in the local town, tennis courts within walking distance, cycling (local bike hire); on the island: golf course, horse riding, fishing, museums, climbing forest, go-kart track.

Why we like this house

The houses are perfectly designed to meet the needs of families, while at the same time being furnished in such a stylish way that design-loving adults will also feel at home here.

This house is great for

Couples, families, holidays with friends, holidays with two families or together with grandparents;

Sustainability

Heat pump and photovoltaic system; e-mobility: a Wallbox is available to guests free of charge.
Arrival by public transport: regional train connection and change to the Bäderbahn train link to Zinnowitz station (1km from the holiday home)

Wir haben einige wunderbare Wintertage im gemütlichen "Strandweiß" verbracht und sind restlos begeistert. Die Architektur des Hauses ist atemberaubend und fügt sich harmonisch in die malerische Ostsee-Atmosphäre ein. Das Interieur-Design überzeugt auf ganzer Linie und vermittelt sofort ein Gefühl von Wärme und Geborgenheit. Besonders hervorzuheben sind der Kamin, der von Wohnzimmer und Küche aus sichtbar ist, das äußerst bequeme Sofa, die durchdachten Lichtschalter- und Steckdosenlösungen sowie die intuitive Musikübertragung in Wohnzimmer und Küche. Die hochwertige Küchenausstattung hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen und bereicherte unsere gemeinsamen Frühstücke und Abendessen. Auch die geräumigen Bäder, die private Sauna und der geschmackvolle Gartenbereich verdienen besondere Erwähnung. Ein weiteres Highlight war die Möglichkeit, unser Elektroauto kostenlos an der hauseigenen Wallbox zu laden – ein echter Vorteil, da die nächste öffentliche Ladestation weit entfernt und oft belegt ist. Die Lage des Ferienhauses ist ideal für Strandliebhaber; ein kurzer Spaziergang durch den Dünenwald führt direkt zum Strand. Die Kommunikation mit Carsten war herausragend, fast so, als würde man bei einem alten Freund übernachten. Herzlichen Dank für diesen unvergesslichen Urlaub. Wir freuen uns schon darauf, bei unserem nächsten Besuch all die Annehmlichkeiten noch ausführlicher zu genießen.

Wir haben 2 wunderbare Ferienwochen mit 6 Enkelkindern im Haus Strandweiss verbracht. Gleich beim Ankommen fühlt man sich wie zu Hause. Die reduzierte aber sehr stimmige Gestaltung, die überlegte Aufteilung der Räume, das helle Holz und die perfekte Beleuchtung sorgen für sofortiges Wohlfühlen. Die beiden großen Esstische in der Küche und auf der Terrasse mit bequemen Sitzgelegenheiten waren unser Mittelpunkt für Essen, Spiel und Gespräche. Die vollkommene Ausstattung der Küche mit Allem, was man braucht und die Möglichkeit, auch mal Wäsche zu waschen haben mit dazu beigetragen, dass wir alle gern noch länger geblieben wären.
