A cosy cottage 70 km from Tallinn in the beautiful Lahemaa National Park right by the sea and beach. Nearby places are the Võsu beach town (7 km), the famous Käsmu fishing village (9 km), beautifully restored Palmse and Sagadi manors (15 km) etc.

The space
This is a custom built two-storey summer cottage by the sea and near the beach. Upstairs is a bedroom with two larger windows on either side, two couches (183 x 80 cm) and a roof window. Downstairs is a cosy room with a fireplace and a sauna with a separate washing room (please inquire about using the sauna separately). If necessary, the upstairs room can accommodate three additional guests, who would be sleeping on mattresses (183 x 64 cm, personally I have found the mattresses to be very comfortable).

Downstairs also has a fireplace, which you can use to create a cosy atmosphere or heat the house if needed. Combined with the fireplace, some cold drinks and a quick dip in the sea, this is the closest to heaven on earth you can get.

If you arrive by car, I can provide you with GPS coordinates. If you arrive by bus, the easiest way is to take the bus from Tallinn to Loksa (where you can also shop for all the food and anything else you may need during your stay). If my schedule permits and I am at the cottage, I can also come meet you there with my car to take you to the cottage, however in general I encourage my guests to consider renting a car, as that allows more flexibility and gives access to beautiful sights nearby, which are too far walking or bicycling.

Where you’ll be

Eru, Lääne-Viru County, Estonia

The sea is about 200 metres from the two houses and safe to swim in. There are also some 3-4 small and private sandy beaches nearby which you can use for sunbathing or staying by the sea for the whole day if you wish. The National Park of Lahemaa (where the cottage is situated) is an absolute beauty of untouched nature, with beautiful mixed and coniferous forests full of all sorts of berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and lingonberries, which are perfectly safe, free and legal to pick) and mushrooms (most are safe, but check with a guidebook or my mother before cooking and eating any), wildlife (you may even spot deers, foxes, hedgehogs and rabbits from your bedroom window in the evening) and friendly private beaches.

I have compiled a list of my favourite and best things to do and see further from the cottage (you'll probably need a car) in a guidebook which you can see at the very bottom of the listing page for the cottage. You can move the map around with your mouse and click on the icons to see my recommendations. Additional things to do and see near the cottage house can be found in the house manual, which you can read upon arrival.

A photographer / writer / traveller / IT enthusiast / lawyer / generalist, I thrive on reading, writing, discovering and experiencing the world. CURRENT MISSION Separate the unimportant from the important, then start doing the important in order of importance. ABOUT ME Passionate about getting organized, becoming disciplined, life-long learning and improving myself physically and mentally in every aspect in order to be all I can be. Sports - daily push-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups should pretty much cover it. And cycling, although that's really mostly for transportation. I've also been into squash, football/soccer and mixed martial arts, although the ability to practice has lately been severely limited due to time constraints. Learning - ideas, methods, theories, approaches, strategies. And then practising what I've learned. Specifically this applies to working out, healthy living, friendships, business, digital technologies, photography, oh who am I kidding, nobody reads these : ) Books: manuals, how-to's, summaries, best-of's but best of all - large format coffee table books about art, history, evolution, paleontology, cosmology, photography, design, anatomy, movies, 3D popups, technology, computers, popular science etc. And audio books - I guess I'm just too dumb to read. Music: contemporary symphony. Club and dance. And then that slow-dance love-making music all those radio-stations play at night : ) TV: Documentaries. News. 60 minutes. CNN and Discovery. Horizon and Nova. MTV and FTV (heh just testing you:). 'Yes Minister' and 'Yes Prime Minister'. 'Dragon's Den', 'The Apprentice' and 'The Apprentice UK', 'The Amazing Race', 'America's Next Top Model' and 'Australia's Next Top Model'. And I never missed an episode of 'Sex and The City' : ) Movies: action, passion, suspense, surprise and love. You got'em? I want'em! "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "The Matrix", "Cruel Intentions", "The Gone Girl", "Fight Club", "Star Wars" original trilogy, "Before Sunrise" trilogy, "Interstellar", "Godfather" 1 and 2, "Se7en", "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", "Die Hard" (the ultimate Christmas movie), "Wall Street", "Atonement" aaand the list continues : ) Cuisines - high carb in the morning, high protein in the evening, low fat throughout the day, anything that's both healthy and tasty fits the bill. Humour - dry/sarcastic, clever/quick witted, friendly. Fashion - alternative, casual, contemporary, minimal. Smoking - no. Drinking - very seldom and only socially.

During your stay

I will be happy to give tips and suggestions to guests if I am there to greet them in person, but I also invite you to check out the special guidebook I have created especially for my AirBNB guests, which you can find in your AirBNB itinerary or in your app under "Guidebook". If you want to rent board games from my collection or bikes, just let me know. I am a professional photographer, so if you want to book a photo session by the sea, I'd be happy to do it. There are also lots of tourist brochures and guidebooks I have collected over the years about Lahemaa and Estonia which are available in the downstairs room.
