June 2014. Cedric Chan, London, United Kingdom: Pia & Nis are wonderful hosts. Both were present to receive us at the property with happy smiling faces. Their attention to detail was evident at arrival with a tea selection, coffee, milk and eggs provided. Breakfast (including delicious homemade bread) and bikes were organised for the following morning upon request. The property was cosy and located in beautiful, tranquil countryside. Only the sounds of nature could be heard. Everything was of the highest quality from carefully chosen Danish design furniture to top specification kitchen fittings, utensils and cookware. We enjoyed staying in so much we cooked every evening of our stay. The location was perfect for visiting Odense and many other places of interest and our hosts provided plenty of advice on where to go. Cycling in the local area along the cycle lanes was convenient, safe and a joy. We highly recommend staying here. Enjoy !!!
July 2014. Thorbjörn Stärker, Germany: Wir sind spontan vier Tage bei Pia und Nis zu Gast gewesen und hatten eine tolle Zeit! Das Appartement ist liebevoll mit Designerstücken ausgestattet und es fehlt an nichts. Man kann den kompletten Garten sowie eine Grillstation nutzen. Pia und Nis waren sehr aufmerksam und haben uns mit Tipps versorgt. Das Frühstück war recht einfach aber sehr lecker und eine gute Portion. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis hat auf jeden Fall gepasst! Wir können uns definitiv vorstellen nochmal zu kommen! Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage!
July 2014. Søren P, Denmark: Pia og Nis er søde og hjælpsomme værter. De gav os en spændende rundvisning på den fredede gamle gård. Lejligheden er rummelig og indrettet med stilfulde møbler. Her mangler intet. Askhøj ligger i dejlige landlige omgivelser med en fårefold i sigte. Det helt rigtige sted til en fredfyldt ferie.
July 2014. Juul Barten, Holland: Askhøj was a really nice and quite place to be. Pia and Nic are nice people. The house was very good equipped, more then can be expected for a holliday house.
August 2014. Stefan Ebling, München, Deutschland: A great escape embedded in a peaceful landscape. The interior design of the apartment is simply fabulous. We felt at home immediately. Pia and Nis are tremendously thoughtful and inspiring hosts. If you are looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful surrounding this is the place to be. We’d love to come back!
August 2014. Edwin Van Rijswijk, Die Niederländer: Pia and Nis have been wonderful hosts and we really felt at home during our stay. The renovated barn apartment is beautifully decorated with mid century danish furniture and high end kitchen equipment. The attention to detail is remarkable. If you’re looking for a calm and relaxing atmosphere at a danish farm in the proximity of Odense and the beach, this is the place. We’d love to come back some day.
August 2014. Johanna Jocelyn, Paris, France: Nous avons vraiment passé un séjour très agréable dans ce gîte. Il est situé à l’intérieur de la ferme mais est dans un bâtiment distinct de celui des propriétaire. Il est à l’écart de la route et le paysage vu de la fenêtre est tout à fait bucolique (enclos des moutons à proximité, lapins venant courir sous votre fenêtre, …). L’espace n’est pas cloisonné (sauf la salle de bain) mais il y a un petit recoin prévu pour être le dressing dans lequel nous avions installé le lit de notre bébé qui s’y est trouvé très bien. Nous avions choisi ce lieu pour la chouette déco, le calme et la machine à laver/sèche- linge, qui sont disponibles (moyennant quelques euros) dans un local attenant à l’appartement. Enfin, un mot sur l’accueil chaleureux des propriétaires ainsi que leur gentillesse lors de notre départ…
August 2014. Nancy Breaux USA: The hosts and location were fantastic and memorable. The apartment is the most comfortable, charming and thoughtfully designed and appointed place we have ever stayed in with Airbnb. It was perfect to explore the nearby city via rented bikes from the host and return to a tranquil quiet setting. We appreciated the use of a washer and dryer that is made available to guests as well. It is a lovely retreat unto itself or to return to after exploring Odense and the southern part of the island. We look forward to returning again. Many thanks Pia and Nis.
August 2014. Joost van der Vleuten, Die Niederlände: Accomodation exceeded expectations: quiet, spacious, clean, confortable and above all tastefull and beautiful Danish design. Surrounded by apple orchard, part of historic farm / manour – but in separate building with its own garden and terrace + barbecue. All privacy you may want. So well equipped that we choose to prep our own meals. Host is very friendly and hospitable – we felt very welcome. Really really good value for money and even better for heart and soul.
September 2014. Dodo Booskamp-Schultze, Berlin: We’ve spent 2 nights in the superb apartement. It is renovated with so much attention to detail and just a fab place to be. The location is great, quiet and in beautiful landscape. We had a super warm welcome by the friendly hosts.

May 2015. Leanne Morgan, Brisbane, Australia, writes: Our extended stay here was everything we were hoping for. ‘Askhøj’ is an absolutely beautiful, historic property and it was a pleasure to live here for several weeks in this impressive apartment. The space features carefully chosen vintage Danish furniture, a top quality kitchen fit out with the best brand equipment and utensils. The presentation was immaculate and perfectly clean. We couldn’t fault it. Nis and Pia’s attention to detail is impeccable. The laundry, with washer/dryer, is located next door. The gardens and outdoor areas are beautifully maintained. We enjoyed spending as much time there as we could. It’s a great place to bbq. It was a joy to watch the resident pheasants daily and the other occasional visitors [deer, hare, fox]. Pack your binoculars. Pia and Nis could not have been more friendly, kind, helpful or thoughtful. From the beginning they were welcoming and helped us feel at home immediately but were always respectful of our privacy. Their generosity began with offering to collect us from the station [due to long flight and baggage] and stocking the kitchen with bread, butter, eggs, milk, skyr, fruit, juice, jam and homemade lamb salami. Nis would always offer us a ride to the supermarket when he was going. It was always a pleasure to chat with him and be in his company. He was also a great source of information for us as new residents. He never seemed to mind our questions and would often follow up with something for us on the topic. As for transport to Odense, there is a bus stop 150 m away with an hourly service. The journey takes approx 25 mins. By car it is only 15 mins. It is only a few kilometres to the nearest village of Bellinge which has 2 supermarkets. Pia and Nis have really created something very special. It has been a wonderful way to begin our new life in Denmark.
June 2015. Lise Marie Kværne, Norway: We had a great stay at Den sidste Gaard and would definitely book another stay any time. The place is a wonderful old danish farm with great scenery and the apartments is rebuild and modern with everything you need. Thank you for a lovely stay Pia and Nis! -Lise Marie.
August 2015. Andreas Pruefling: We stayed at the Apartment for six nights on our summer-holiday in Denmark. The appartment was very beautiful, comfortable and clean. There is also a nice garden around the house where you can sit, have a barbecue and enjoy the time. Altough the location is quiet, a supermarket and an ATM are just five minutes away by car. Pia and Nis are very friendly and kind hosts. Before we left, Nis gave us a tour on the whole farm, which they had restored in the last years. Pia and Nis really created a very nice hideout in the middle of Funen. Thank you for the warm welcome and a great time in Denmark. We couldn’t think of a better place to stay.
August 2015. Rabea: Pia und Nis haben uns sehr freundlich empfangen und uns das Appartement gezeigt,dass genauso toll aussieht, wie auf den Bildern. Das Appartment ist sehr hochwertig renoviert und ausgestattet,besonders die Küche und das Bad. Wir haben unseren kurzen Aufenthalt sehr genossen und bedanken uns dafür,dass wir hier übernachten durften
Juni 2016. Teddy Bornestad: We really enjoyed our time at Nils and Pia’s place. The apple orchard was lovely to walk around in and we was fascinated by the Gotland sheep. 🙂 Nis was a warm host and checked on us regularly. Odense is just 10-15 drive away and the surroundings are lovely – recommended!
Juni 2016. Jan De Lange: This apartment is absolutely the best we ever had. Nis, Pia’s husband, is a great host. He did all to make us feel comfortable. The apartment is very beautiful. A splendid mixture of modernity and original elements. Everything is designed en built with great care and attention. There is a very large garden one can use. The place is quiet. Very, very pleasant. Thanks Pia and Nil, we hope you will have many more guests.
Juli 2016. Margaret Wijsbeek-Meijer: The apartment was perfect. We enjoyed our stay. The host was very helpfull and gave us some good tips. When you go to Funen is this the place to be.
Juli 2016. Sarah Troillet: If you want to stay near Odense you have to stay there! 20 minutes by bike or tandem…The perfect apartment! In the nature! If you want a quiet place it’s the place to be…only the sings of birds. We recommend to visit the old farm with Nis!
August 2016. Nigel Waters: This is a very nicely converted farm building. It is situated with lovely views over countryside. The apartment is one large room plus a bathroom. Nis and Pia were very good hosts & give us a tour of the farm buildings. The bed was very comfortable, the wifi & other appliances all worked well. Parking is good.
August 2016, Rudi Messagie: Stylish modern, clean and well-equipped appartement ground-floor level with garden furniture.
August 2016. Anneloes Van Aken: We had a wonderful time at Pia and Nis’ place. It was a lovely farm with a lot of space. The apartment was like described, very convenient and beautiful. Pia and Nis thought of every detail. It was very quite and relaxing. When we needed them they were there.
August 2016. Blondeau Dominique: Agréable séjour pour 2 nuits. Tout était parfait : environnement calme, espace, conception et décoration, équipement de la cuisine… sans oublier l’accueil chaleureux de Nis et ses efforts pour parler français ! Nous pouvons que recommander ce lieu !
August 2016. Mads Jørgensen: Rigtig hyggelig lejlighed, med alt hvad man kunne forstille sig! Fin velkomst, og rigtig dejlig værtsskab 🙂 dejlige omgivelser og renligheden var i top.
Juni 2017. Amalie:. Lovely host and lovely home! Pia and Nis have been the most gracious hosts, right from the get go. My friend and I were a bit difficult, as we couldn’t exactly tell them, when we were going to arrive, but they were more than flexible. The little house we stayed in was newly refurbished, fully equipped, very clean, and surrounded by a ton of roses and lovely greenery. We will definitely stay here again, especially considering all the care they put in to making us comfortable. Thanks Nis and Pia, see you again – hopefully for a bit longer the next time! Best regards Amalie & Maiken.
