A tale of two Houses...

Our two villas date back a hundred years, to the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, when Lysekil was one of Sweden’s most popular seaside resorts. Strand Hostel was built in 1894. Originally called the Strand Hotel, it was in its day the most fashionable hotel in the area. The house you are staying in now, “Strandflickornas Havshotel”, was built in 1904 as "Villa Fridhem", a retirement home for nurses who had worked in the resort. Later it became a hotel that opened over the summer season.

"Strand" has recently been completely renovated and now it offers both hotel and hostel rooms. “Strandflickornas Havshotel”, which we bought in 1998, offers conference facilities and weekend packages. All its rooms have been renovated with individual interiors using period furniture from the beginning of 1900s. In 2013, the hotel went through an expansion and now it has 7 new double rooms and an orangery used for serving breakfast and smaller plates in the evenings.

The Story of "Strandflickorna"…..

Two friends, Åsa and Bettina, opened their first temporary hostel in the summer of 1990. The house was old and was due to be demolished at the end of the summer. They borrowed beds from the military and paid the rent with a bottle of whisky…

They thought it would be a fun summer. But it certainly wasn’t fun on the first day. Bettina was at her brother’s wedding and so Åsa was left to manage by herself. The hostel was fully booked and outside it was raining hysterically. Then suddenly the neighbour from beneath came in, yelling: “There’s water pouring through the walls into my apartment and I have an art collection in there worth millions of kroner….” Åsa checked the basement and… yes, she found a huge block in the drain, and waste water backing up and filling the room all around her… - she realized that all the toilets needed to be closed off, and fast…

Despite this grand opening, Åsa and Bettina ran the hostel for the summer, and it turned out not to be so bad after all … With the money they earned that year, they each bought a laptop  Twenty-three years later, they are still running the hostel and now a hotel as well!

When they bought Strandflickornas Havshotel in 1998, the floor was covered with 1970s rugs (?carpet) and the walls were decorated with ugly dark brown wallpaper …. But Åsa and Bettina have a love of old fashioned wallpaper, Victorian decoration and antique furniture, and so they set about restoring it in period style. They looked back at the magazines from Lysekil’s heyday a century before and found ideas for the different decorative themes that now adorn the hotel. Gossip magazines came up with the names for the rooms. They couldn’t help but be touched by the stories they read there. “The Baroness went arm in arm with the well-known manufacturer” Who knows what became of these people and how their lives turned out…

Strandflickornas Havshotel and Strand Hostel are open all year around. Nowadays they attract all types of guests, from scuba divers to businessmen and wedding couples.
