About Anna Bannon

My name is Anna and I am originally from Poland. I moved to England over 35 years ago where I now live with my husband John, my two daughters, and our cat Jerry.

Anna Bannon purchased this house in 2003

Why Anna Bannon chose Polnische Ostseeküste

It was always my dream to have a base in Poland where all the family could gather and spend time together. I am now so thrilled to have the House of Storks and Amber Farm (HomeAway.co.uk #57818) as tranquil havens in the beautiful Polish countryside for the enjoyment of family, friends and our guests.

My brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Mirka, look after the house. They live next door to the House of Storks and are pleased to offer a warm welcome to our guests. They will show guests round the House, explain how everything works, and give guests the benefit of their local knowledge.

What makes this house unique

One of Poland's attributes is its beautiful countryside and forests, and I always wanted my home to be part of the landscape. The House of Storks is built from local wood and thatched with reed farmed from Polish lakes. It is very comfortable - cool in summer (which can get very warm) and the thick walls and the log fire keep us warm in winter.

The House of Storks is ideally placed to visit the tri-city (Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot), the lakes of Pomerania, and local beaches.

The wood burning hot tub in the garden is always a big hit with our guests on a summer or winter's evening.

The House of Storks

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned home to rainy, cloudy Manchester after a lovely week at The House of Storks. What a beautiful house! Spacious, exquisitely clean, well-cared for, well-equipped and in a beautiful location - Bojano, very close to Gdansk. It was a delight to laze in the huge garden or eat breakfast at the table outside watching and listening to the birds; we even heard a cuckoo. Deer crossed the path near the house and storks nested nearby. Some mornings we would see the baby stork poking its head out of its nest. Bojano is good for interesting walks and cycle rides - the area is very flat. The meals we ate, mainly in Gydinia, were excellent. Gdansk is an intersting city - the shipyards and the quaint streets. It was also incredibly easy to park! My favourite place was Sopot - glamour from yesteryear! One occasion we heard piano playing from one of the villas, some displaying a faded glamour, and it felt as though we had stepped back into the early 19th century. Slowinsky National Park, although quite a drive, is an unusual phenomenon, but what a chill wind. I regret not visitng the Hel peninsular. But the roads and the drivers were a little scary! Mirka and Krys who look after the house were very friendly, helpful and amenable. They are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful location. Poland and The House of Storks surpassed my expectations and I would love to return. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I will be recommending Poland and the House of Storks to all my friends and family.

Spacious, bright and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

House of Storks met all our expectations. The house is fully equipped with all you need in a holiday home. It offers a lot of space inside and out and is situated in a lovely neighbourhood. It wasn't difficult to find, as our (British) satnav knew even the smallest dirt track in Poland. The owner provided a survival pack of food for the first supper and first breakfast, plus soap, dishwasher tabs and toilet paper to start. The house and garden are well kept. We enjoyed our stay here.

Wonderful stay at House of Storks

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed so much our stay at The House of Storks. We are a family with four children and we all had a wonderful time. The backyard and house are lovely! There was enough room and space for our family. The house is very well decorated. There are also a lot of things to visit in the area. Sopot, Gdansk and the castle of Malbork are amazing and are very near the house. The house is isolated from the mainroads and is in a very nice neighbourhood. The owners are first class! We just met our first and last day but did not meet during our stay although they live next door. We had a lot of privacy thanks to this and that was what we were looking for. I would highly recommend this house for any family who wants to have a fantastic place to stay for nice vacations in Poland.
