About Northhouse Holiday Homes

My name is Jens Staadsen Petersen, and I was born in 1966. In 1997 I started the company Northhouse Holiday Home. The first house I started renting out was a small brick house which my father built in his prime on small piece of land overlooking Flensborg Fjord, which was difficult to cultivate. He must have thought: "If I cant grow anything there, why not build a summer house?". When my grandmother died the appartment she used to have on the farm, was conveniently converted into a rental accommodation. And then I had two rental units. "Yes, I'm in buisness now", was my thought. The tenants were mainly German, and my German was quite bad. Later it improved a lot, especially after I married a german girl in 2002. My wife's name was Tabea Ruckdeschel and she came from Dessau in the former GDR.

Today we have about 250 nice holiday homes for rent. Most of these holiday homes are situated in Sout East Jutland. We have a few holiday homes on the Atlantic coast, a couple on Funen, a few in Middle Jutland a few in North Jutland and 1 on Sealand.

The holiday home bookings take place on this internet site, mainly through the German and the Danish interface. In recent years we have had around 1500 bokings per year. In spring 2010 my wife (Tabea) became full time employed and in 2011 our small company was transformed into a private limited company. Today we are 4 people, plus the cleaning staff, working in the company.
