Cozying up at the NEWHAUS Holiday Houses

I’ve always wanted to rent a beach house in the middle of winter. There’s something about being near the beach during a time that’s the complete antithesis of bikini season. Instead of frolicking in the sunshine in swimsuits, cozying up inside and watching the waves crash onto the the shore sounds just as delightful, no? Now imagine doing exactly that at the NEWHAUS designed by Berlin-based architect Herbert Hussmann. Located 3.5 hours outside of Berlin, the NEWHAUS consists of two architecturally-designed holiday houses that are surrounded by an idyllic pine forest and the sand dunes of Dierhagauen-Neuhaus.

There are two homes available for rent, Haus Pine and Haus Sand. Both feature minimalist architecture and modern interiors with the latest technology and amenities.

You’ll find classic design by the likes of Minotti, Vitra, B&B Italia, and Hans J. Wegner. Listen to music on luxury technologies from Muso, B&O, Naim and Bose. Salto My Clay key systems will check you in and an electric station will charge your car up. Inside, contemporary art by Thomas Scheibitz, Adrian Sauer, Bettina Krieg, Philipp Grözinger, Amelie Grözinger, Hannelore van Dijk, Franziska Holstein, Jens Hausmann and Tony Crag adorn the walls.

You’ll find everything else you could possibly need – utensils, cutlery, Nespresso coffee makers, juice press, linens, bedding and more – to make your beach stay comfortable.

If it’s warm enough, the beach is only steps away. Need to warm? Every haus comes with a sauna on the bottom level of the home.
