This Swedish guest cottage on the beach is straight out of a fantasy

This peaceful guest house is surrounded by a stunning garden and is just steps from the beach. The home is located near Bastad, Sweden, and available as a vacation rental through Airbnb. The listing is filled with rave reviews, often naming the house as a place the vacationers will never forget.
The cottage's interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. A small living, dining and kitchen area is on the main floor, and a narrow stairway leads up to the sleeping loft. Each space is thoughtfully decorated, painted all white and accented with colorful and artistic details.

The little kitchenette is simple and charming with white cabinets and a black countertop. Scenic oil paintings and plant life add cozy and romantic touches to the otherwise plain space.
The upstairs loft is the perfect place to dream the nights away, waking up to the sound of the ocean. A white curtain can be drawn for privacy.
The opposite side of the loft features a creative little nook near the banister — a soft seating area stuffed with cushions. Seems like a perfect spot to curl up with a good book.
The loft is open to the main floor, allowing the entire cottage to enjoy the natural light and beautiful views from the windows. The round window at the peak of the vaulted ceiling is one of the most stunning features of the whole house.
The seating area downstairs includes a daybed set up as a sofa, and a collection of mismatched furniture and textiles creates an eclectic and welcoming space.
Nothing can beat the coastal and garden views of this cottage. It truly seems like a little piece of paradise on earth.

The dining space is tucked in a corner of the main floor and is yet another spot to soak in the views. This cottage proves you don't need a lot of square footage to create a dream home.
