Norway is known as the Land of the Midnight Sun with long summer evenings and very short hours of daylight in the winter.

                                                          Easy to get to, on bus routes from town centre. Central location for walking to Royal Palace & Frogner Park ( lovely shopping area ). Supermarket 3 mins walk away. At the top edge of a beautiful wooded park with panoramic view of the city at sunset. Morten was very helpful & showed us how it all worked. Very comfortable homely apartment with eclectic decor and lighting. Two bathrooms and a layout and sleeping arrangement that worked for the five of us. Kids are now students & we felt we were reliving our student days with LP's & large screen projector for DVD's. We got 3 day Oslo passes For museums & public transport. Great stay would do it again.

                                                          Like staying in a postcard

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We were blown away the minute we arrived at the cottage. The location is beyond stunning and the views from all the windows are amazing. Although it was very cold outside the cottage was warmed up nicely by a heater and the bathroom had underfloor heating so perfect when you step out the shower. Truls and Kare were the perfect hosts who we had a lovely Norwegian breakfast and great conversation with. Location wise the bus stop is right outside and you can be in the centre of Oslo within 15mins which is perfect as you can relax here away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still be near enough to go exploring. One of the best places we have ever stayed in and would not hesitate to come back.

                                                          Idyllic secluded home-from-home

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We really appreciated the way that Joost and Kristin had thoughtfully sought to set the cabin up with everything you could need for comfortable home living. The location is charming and tranquil. The cabin warms up very well with the wood stove. Joost was very attentive to all our needs, getting extra wood when needed and providing good humoured conversation when he visited. The location is very good for exploring lakes and places of interest up to Lillehammer. The wi-fi works well and keeps you connected if needed, whilst the location and environment keep you far away from the pressures of daily urban life. We highly recommend the place for a break from daily grind.
