Special attention was paid to maintaining the spirit of the times and the “soul” of the house, the aqua greenhouses on the harbor are built in the 1930’s and served here as baiting sheds and fishing gear storage over the turn of the last century. The harbor is a two-floor restaurant and can seat up to 100 guests. With a magical view overseeing the marina, the local trade, and its community and to top it off you have the beautiful Esja mountain and the bay in the background.
