Hanne´Zzz - Bed and Breakfast apartments near Aabenraa
Hanne has always been fascinated by the hotel-
and restauration business. She got her first job as a
dishwasher, when she was just 13-14 years old, and
she has since had job in the field. She loved - and still
do - to help giving other people a good experience
through great service.
No one in the family wondered, when Hanne drove
Danhostel Oksbøl with another person. Hanne had
the responsibility to check in guests, take care of administration,
helping with service and cleaning.
That was until Cupid hit Hanne - with precision - and
she moved to Aabenraa with her new boyfriend Uwe
into his family’s farm. The work at Danhostel was
dropped, and Hanne and her boyfriend now created
a common home in Rise Hjarup - located just 6 kilometers
north of Aabenraa.
The earth surrounding the farm was rented out, and
there was an empty building near the main house,
where the crew used to go. Hanne got an idea. It was
the service gene that moved, but Hannes boyfriend
said no. Some time went by until Hanne succeeded in
convincing Uwe. They were going to create an accommodation
in the empty buildings.
To achieve something, you have to spend some money,
so Uwe and Hanne made a deal. They agreed that
guests should not enter their private home, and they
should not offer served breakfast. The new accommodation
became a mix between a hostel, where you can
bring your own bed linen and cook, and a motel, where
the guests have their own entrance and can park
in front of their room. The new project was named
Hanne’zzz Bed and Breakfast apartments.
Hanne and Uwe settled the deal with a handshake
and agreed to build an additional five apartments.
Down went the old henhouse, and the new apartment
building was ready after just six months.
They did not do it for the money. They just though it
was a reasonable way to create a profit of their funds,
and Hanne could enjoy her hobby. The easiest would
have been to put the money on a savings account in
the bank and let it be done with that. Back then, you
got interests of your invested capital in the bank. It
was not the same as now, where capital and savings
are not rewarded.
In the summer of 2011, all five apartments were
ready. Hanne threw the last bucket of dirty floor
cleaning water away, and in the same time a car entered
the courtyard. Her first guest had arrived. The
guest, who was a craftsman, had heard in the city
that a new accommodation had been built - and he
wanted to stay there. So without Hanne had known,
he just came, asked for a bed and stayed for months.
Now the business had finally started.
Hanne’zzz is located in nice rural surroundings. The
area can fulfill all your wishes of an active vacation
full of experiences. Nearby you will find two fiords -
Haderslev and Flensborg Fiord - and many unique nature
areas, which invites to activities or a swimming
vacation. The city of Aabenraa is beautifully located in
the bottom of Aabenraa Fiord, which is the deepest
in Denmark, surrounded by forest and lovely nature.
Aabenraa is first and foremost know for having the
largest harbor in Southern Jutland with a significant
amount of shipping and harbor industry, but also for
the exiting city life, cozy shopping streets, and beautiful
Seven years after the building of the apartments,
Hanne looks back on many exiting experiences with
happy and nice guests. A lot of craftsmen, students,
family party guests, and travelers going to Germany
has stopped by.
It has not been boring, as both Uwe and Hanne besides
their day jobs have taken care of almost everything
themselves, however with help from family,
friends, and neighbors in pressured situations. You
can easily say, the couple have lived an active life.
In a few years waits pension and a calmer existence.
But the guest - Hanne cannot live without them...
