We stayed in Jostein’s cottage this week and it was absolutely lovely!
The cottage is renovated to a very high standard, with a nice kitchen, a big patio with a jacuzzi and a view to die for!
The location is great - very quiet, peaceful and having a great vibe. Bergen is just 30 minutes away, but when you’ve had enough of hustle and bustle, you return to a quiet gateway to unwind in a jacuzzi!
I would definitely recommend this place for those who want to enjoy a holiday among the fjords.
I stayed here for a week with my niece & it was a highlight of our Norway road trip! The house was private, peaceful, warm & cosy (heating system as well as a fire), comfortable, fully-equipped ... and just look at that view! There is the water at the front that you can explore by boat or canoe (both included in the price of the property) and a forest at the back. We thoroughly enjoyed being so close to nature & were delighted to see a pair of white tailed eagles who are nesting close by. The TV channels are German or Norwegian (amusing for us English girls) & there is no wifi (you're in the middle of nowhere after all) - a true opportunity to 'get away from it all'. For location, it is very close to Bergen (we used the ferryboat & the bus from Kleppestø - both were quick, easy & cheap). But if you want to carry on the nature theme, there are lots of beautiful walks nearby - one starts after you follow a lane at the back of the Ask Spar supermarket, another around the nearby swimming area on the road to Kleppestø ... and there are lots of walks if you drive north to Herdla. As for our hosts, you won't find two nicer people :) I can't recommend this place highly enough!
