“Perfect Place with Stunning Views”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

If I ever go to Oslo again, this will be my first port of call. I couldn't have asked for anywhere more perfect. I was attending a conference in the museum area of Oslo with a friend and wanted to be away from the centre of town. Although it was two bus rides to where we were going, once we sorted out the times etc, it all worked smoothly. For two people it was luxurious as we had a bedroom each with big comfortable beds. The best bit is the lounge with a balcony overlooking the Fjord and offering fantastic photographic opportunities with big skies and reflections in the water.

Our hosts were wonderful. So much so that in a desperate moment on the way from the airport, we had to contact them to ask about emergency dentists. In no time at all an appointment had been made in the Central Station for when we arrived.

My only regret is that the conference took up much of our time so we didn't get a chance to look around the area and do some of the waterside walks.

I highly recommend this apartment. I never want to stay anywhere else. Well except maybe the cottage they also own down by the Fjord.

“Wonderful place to stay in Oslo”

My wife and I, along with two of our adult children, stayed in Kare and Truls' waterfront apartment for 3 nights during the Oslo leg of our Scandinavia vacation. It was a good location, 12 minutes away from the city center by bus as advertised. Kare and Truls were wonderful hosts, spending time to talk with us about site seeing options, logistics, and attending to our needs (they even did some laundry for us, which was most helpful). The apartment was very nice, with a good living room with a balcony overlooking their yard and the fjord. Two separate bedrooms worked well for us, as did having separate bathing and toilet rooms. My wife and I had time on our last day to go down the road a bit and take a walk along the fjord that Truls recommended. You won't regret staying here if you do.

“Really Friendly Helpful Host, and Super Flat with an Unforgettable View of Fjord”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Host Kore went out of his way to make us at home and was endlessly helpful about practical advice. For an extra fee a very good breakfast is provided, including omelettes, bread, fresh berries with yoghourt & granola, orange juice, salami, and truly superior salmon. The flat is super clean, and warm, and has a fridge, coffee machine (very grateful) and a microwave. Note, there is no cooker or kitchen sink. But the kitchen zone is very well stocked with cups, glasses, cutlery etc, and anything used was replaced daily. Our duvets were lovely and thin (which is what we Londoners prefer, but I think they have thicker ones too), and our hosts kindly provided extra woollen blankets, which some of us appreciated a lot as we prefer to sleep under sheets and blankets. We also appreciated the pure cotton sheets, instead of hellish polyester ones. There is a TV but don't bother turning it on - the the view is way better than TV!

The bus number 83 from Tollboden (near main train station) takes you all the way to the house in around 10 minutes. The useful electronic screen on buses announces each stop as it comes up so you wont get lost - get off at GLADVOLLVEIEN. The bus stops literally at the house! With an Oslo Pass, hopping on and off buses was no hassle. Only thing is, make sure to check the bus timetable as not as frequent as in some cities. Don't get caught out as with some routes you could be waiting half an hour! But I should add it was easy peasy getting from flat to nice places, eg to Bygdoy (for Fram, Viking Ships or the Folk museum) - the bus goes to Radhus, then just hop on a boat or take a second bus 30 to Bygdoy.

If you are looking for lovely hosts, you will find it in Kore and Truls. (Big Thank You to Kore for sorting out things when one of us wasn't too well). If you need a bright cosy homely and clean flat with a handy bus stop right on the doorstep, here it is! This flat was a lucky find, with a view to DIE for! We won't ever forget it.

From the moment we met Truls, we were treated warmly; he even helped to carry our luggage to the house! The accommodation was very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. View from the balcony was unforgettable! Buses run frequently into the city centre, with a lovely scenic journey too! Would most definitely return here again in the future.

Warm Hosts, we had a glass of wine upon arriving. Received clear instructions on how to get there. We had the whole floor for us with two bedrooms, shared bathroom and toilet, a living room, terrace facing the Fjord with outstanding sunset view. Clean and cozy. and its not too far from city central, maybe 15-20 mins with a bus or Train.
