About Steinar Nilsen or Riitta Pelli-Nilsen

I am a Norwegian engineer living in Oslo with my wife and teenage son. We all enjoy travelling and love to visit new places.

We have a beautiful holiday apartment in a fantastic location overlooking the Oslofjord. We bought this place in 2010 and occasionaly rent it out to visiting families when we are not using it ourselves.

My favourite leisure activity is sailing and we own a 37' cruiser which we use as often we can. The Oslofjord is perfect for sailing with its combination of open waters and passages protected by a huge number of beautiful islands.

I also enjoy skiing when it is too cold for sailing. Oslo is surrounded by hills and forests and is perfect for crosscountry skiing, but also have some decent areas for alpine skiing.

Excellent apartment and holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We found this an excellent apartment for combining a relaxed outdoor holiday in beautiful countryside with visits to Oslo’s cultural, dining and maritime scene.

Very well equipped, comfortable and attractively decorated on a nautical theme, we especially liked the large dining table – good for spreading out maps - kitchen area with plenty of room and cosy sofa by the window with stunning views of Sandebukta. Details such as a thermos flask, candles and outdoor rugs were appreciated. The apartment has good Wi- Fi access.

The Co-op supermarket is a few minutes’ drive away (or you can walk from the apartment on the footpaths) and has all basic requirements.

The area immediately around the apartment is ideal for rambling, picnicking and just watching the marina activities with easily accessible board walks, jetties, mini beaches and wooded headlands to explore. (Take a picnic to the flat rocks at the secluded end of the fjord) Above the fjord there are beautiful forest and lakeside walks near the village of Hof.

Holmestrand and Horton are fascinating ports with lots to see and do.

Sande has a good train service to Oslo as an alternative to driving in and the Ostbanehallen at Oslo station has great cafes and food shops. We took the ferry to Bygdoy where the highlight for us was going aboard polar ship Fram in the brilliant Fram Museum.

The process of booking our holiday was very straightforward and Steinar was always available via text and email, (thanks in particular for the live traffic tips when we were held up on the E18!), welcomed us to the apartment and gave us great info on local walks.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment when visiting this lovely area of Norway and look forward to coming again.

Trip to apartment in Sande

  • 4 of 5

A good clean & compact apartment for self-catering, with a fantastic view of the bay. Recommended for local sightseeing & we were surprised how easy it was getting to Oslo & back again in an evening with the car.

On our short visit Steinar showed us kind hospitality, we were greeted upon our arrival & we shared good communication during the months prior to our arrival by phone & email who gave us good advise. The owners kindly let us use their Bikes - there are some fantastic scenic cycle routes from the doorstep but seen as this is Norway some parts were quite challenging with hills in places but it was worth it.

We recommend this place & it would be a pleasure to return.

Thank you to the Nilsen family.

With kindest Regards,

N&V

Beautiful and well equipped apartment with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded our expectations.

It is a beautifully spacious and modern apartment, not to mention warm.

It is very well equipped and we found everything there that we needed for our week's stay.

We were travelling with our six month old daughter and the owners very kindly organised use of a travel cot and bedding.

We would definitely go back.
