A holiday home on stilts in a water world

Eye-catching – even from afar: the stilt houses in the marina “Im Jaich” on the island Rügen. Along a 150-metre jetty, twelve so-called “floating” holiday homes rise out of the water on stilts and offer visitors a really special holiday experience in the middle of the biosphere reservation South-East Rügen. Enjoying breakfast in the morning with a view of the water, in the evening watching the sun slowly descend on the horizon – both romantics and water lovers get their money’s worth.

Timber cladding with a strong profile and reliable protection

Suitable for this natural landscape, the holiday homes were constructed out of ecological materials such as wood. The direct proximity to water and the weather conditions present on the island, which can range from high temperatures to rough Baltic Sea winds, require a particular treatment so that the stilt houses continue to shine in their natural beauty each and every season. The house facades were covered with Osmo cladding profile “Cono” which were treated with Osmo Country Colour in a custom colour tone. Both the cladding system and the surface finish are characterized by a particularly long life. Overlapping slants lead rainwater away and thus protect the cladding against penetrating moisture. Osmo Country Colour provides the wood with a water-repellent as well as extremely weather and UV-resistant surface, which does not crack, peel, flake or blister and allows the wood to breathe. Thereby both swelling and shrinkage are prevented. Osmo offers cladding profiles upon request pre-treated – starting from 1 square metre of cladding. Choose from the standard colour tones in the range as well as over 186 RAL and 2,000 NCS colour tones.

Holiday in the middle of nature

The stilt houses that are equipped for comfort can be rented throughout the year and offer room for the whole family: whereas in the small version with 49 square metres can be accommodate up to four people, the 72-square-metre large houses offer room for up to six people to sleep. The modern interior features leave nothing to be desired. Regardless of their floorplans, all houses have a deck, a swim ladder for direct access to a refreshing, cool dip in the water and boat dock. Activities such as swimming, fishing or boating start right directly in front of the house. The holiday area offers, in addition, sailing trips, kayaking, charter boats, extensive hiking possibilities, excursions to colourful fishing villages and historic seaside resorts as well as adventure playgrounds for the wee ones. The perfect mixture of relaxation in a beautiful dwelling with various experiences in the breath-taking surroundings.
