About the property

Right on the fjord, 12 minutes from the centre

- Beach house within the city of Oslo

- Located right on the water

- Excellent opportunities for swimming, diving and fishing from the property

- Only 12 minutes by bus from Oslo city centre

- Uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons

Welcome to stay in our fantastic waterfront fjord cottage! It is located within the city limits of Oslo, and it is a truly rare kind of property in the city landscape. You will be staying right on the water (literally only a couple of metres away) and the property has a long shoreline with excellent opportunities for swimming, diving, kayaking, and boating. Uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons!

The property is located only 12 minutes by bus away from the centre of Oslo, and there are frequent bus departures from just outside the property from early morning to late evening.


The charming outdoor area has 180 degrees of stunning views of the fiord and its islands.

There is an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, an outdoor hot-water shower, a heat lamp, a dining area, reclining chairs and much more.

There is a boat and a kayak available for rent.


The fjord cottage was built at a time when the City of Oslo still permitted construction right on the water. Such construction is no longer allowed, rendering this a particularly rare and unique property.

The interior has later been re-designed by architect Andreas Tingulstad. While the fjord cottage is not very large, the design strives to make the most out of every cubic millimeter.

The interior is modern, has specially designed furniture, and is well lit with lighting from Expo Nova. A combined heat pump and air conditioning unit ensures comfortable indoor temperatures around the year.

The kitchen has a Miele induction cooktop, an oven, a micro­wave oven, a dish­washer, refrigerator and freezer, a coffee machine, knives, china, and glassware.

In the living room, there is a flatscreen TV. The dining area (which can actually seat up to 10 persons) has a panoramic alcove with an 180 degree view of the Oslo fjord, including its islands and the buildings of downtown Oslo.

The bathroom features Bisazza mosaic, sandblasted glass and Philippe Stark interior design.


There is a bedroom with four bunk beds, and also a mezzanine sleeping loft which sleeps up to four people in two comfortable double beds. The loft is perched above the living area and is accessed by a ladder. Each bed features an overhead ceiling window which offers the opportunity to fall asleep right under the stars.

There are light-proof roller blinds on every window. Used in conjunction with the air conditioning, it makes it easy to regulate both light and temperature even in the middle of summer.

The fjord cottage is ideal for couples, families and groups of up to four or five friends. It can technically sleep up to eight people, but the sleeping arrangements become intimate if there are that many guests.


While this property is a heavenly place to spend time by the sea in the warmer part of the year, it is a uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons. The immediate vicinity to the water provides for stunning views in all kinds of weather. Some winters, the fiord is covered by ice thick enough to allow skating, skiing, ski sailing and kite snowboarding. The combination of heated floors and the powerful heat pump ensures comfortable indoor temperature all winter long.


Guests have access to our beautiful garden, and to the fantastic swimming, diving and fishing opportunities that are available from the property.

As mentioned above, guests may also rent a kayak or boat from us. (In the interest of safety, rental presupposes that you have previous experience with kayaking or boating.)

Just splendid

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Truls and Kare’s beautiful property just as the first signs of spring were appearing. The house is so lovely that we spent quite a bit of time there. The dock outside is a great place to sit and read and enjoy the breathtaking surroundings. We found Oslo to be a friendly and welcoming city in general and Truls and Kåre certainly embody that spirit. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed at a more distinctive property and it won’t be soon forgotten. The ladder that leads to the two double beds upstairs takes a bit of navigation and has been mentioned by another traveler. I think perhaps my 65 year old parents would have had trouble with it, but for young, able bodied travelers and families I don’t think it poses a problem. We were glad we booked this property and would highly recommend it to others. You’ll see a beautiful part of the city that you may not see otherwise.

House has everything you need but the additional bedroom upstairs is questionable- the ladder getting to bed is a challenge!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your visit and for your nice review. It is true that access to the sleeping loft is via a ladder. We are so sorry to hear you found it challenging, and we do hope that you opted to sleep in the bedroom downstairs instead. (Interestingly, not many guests actually find the ladder challenging. However, for those who have mobility issues, sleeping on the loft is not an option). It was a pleasure hosting you, and we do hope to see you here again some other time!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay while we explored Oslo! The setting is beautiful and Truls and Kåre are kind, organized, and helpful. The property is literally right next to a bus stop and the public transportation is so easy to figure out. We loved our stay here and would definitely go back!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place and hosts. We especially enjoyed the outdoor space and the interior had everything you could need. Swimming off the dock and grilling out made our stay in Oslo a highlight of our trip. We couldn't recommend the location more.

The property is just as beautiful as it looks right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little cottage right on the water. It's such a beautiful view that it's hard to pull yourself away. The bus stop is right across the street, making for easy access to all the sights. You may even be greeted by their cat. If you get a chance, make sure to have the breakfast. It was delicious, and Truls was very kind and welcoming. Our only disappointment was that the bed under the widows was not working. Our son enjoyed the loft, though, with the view of the sky. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Oslo.
