Welcome! Nestled between famous hiking mountains and a gorgeous fjord, you are welcome to stay with us in our charming apartment in Nuuk. Full amenities, free internet and a simple breakfast are complimentary.

The Space

Welcome! Nestled between the famous Store Malene mountain, lake and the fjord, you are welcome to feel at home with us. We offer a comfortable bedroom (full sized bed 140cm x 210cm) and shared bathroom in 'New Nuuk', otherwise known as Qinngorput. Complimentary wireless internet, breakfast, toiletries, linen and all that jazz included!

This brand new apartment has a well-equipped kitchen, bright living area and balcony with gorgeous views overlooking the second biggest fjord system in the world. In the colder season you can watch icebergs float by in the fjord. Our guests have seen huge eagles and ravens, the human paraglider, and the occasional whale from the balcony.

Guest Access

You are welcome to make yourselves at home.

Wireless internet is free to use.

We provide fresh clean towels, linen and good quality bathroom toiletries. A wholesome help-yourself breakfast with bread, cheese, jam, muesli and yoghurt (or skyr) and refreshments such as juice, tea and coffee are always available.

Interaction with Guests

We are sensitive to your needs and can help you as much as you need - though note we are both working. We also respect your desire for privacy.

The Neighborhood

Be blown away by stunning nature right outside your doorstep!

Directly behind the residence are famous mountains (Store Malene and Lille Malene) which offer lovely hiking opportunities and more picturesque sights. You can expect alot of nature and beauty when here.

A grocery store and public transport is a short walk and bus ride away to get into the city. We recommend people who choose this home to be fit and mobile; as you will have to walk roughly 600 meters to the bus stop. 2 to 4 buses run per hour from 6am to midnight everyday. Taxis are 150kr per trip into the city.

We are also 5 - 10 minutes drive by taxi to the airport, costing about 100 kroners. Connecting buses from the airport are not regular enough to service the city.

Getting around

2-4 buses run regularly per hour from 6am to midnight. Taxis always available. Nuuk is small!

We are very close to the airport - you will be there in five to ten minutes by taxi.

Other Things to Note

NOTE: Travelling in the Arctic is unpredictable. Flights seem to be delayed / cancelled all the time due to bad weather, so it's a good idea to allow some extra allowance for travelling to and from Nuuk.

We'd appreciate if you could provide some details about yourself and your trip with your message. If you would like to know more about life in Nuuk and Greenland, you can search for my blog 'The Fourth Continent'. THANK YOU!

  • We had a wonderful time staying in Greenland with Tanny. The apartment is fantastic, with a great view of the harbor. She provided breakfast and was very hospitable. Location is excellent with a bus and grocery store nearby. We'd love to stay with them again if we ever make it back to Greenland.

  • It was great staying with Tanny and Jonas. They were friendly and welcoming, and their apartment was delightful (if there's a bright red sealskin missing from the living room chair, it was me). The room is just lovely, clean, spacious, really comfortable bed. Easy bus service to town. One day I walked home from town, which is easy too - maybe five or 6 km? (if you're slow like me, it takes a while). Taxi to airport is very good, and close.

    And the wireless internet works perfectly. Hooray. A really good first Airbnb experience.

  • Very very good location and 10 mins away from the airport literally. Taxi fare is about 100 DKK and location is close to everywhere in Nuuk.

  • Every story about my trip to Greenland includes how great my accommodations were. Tanny and Jonas were wonderful hosts and made me feel comfortable right away. Their place was cozy and clean, close to hiking trails and just a quick walk to the nearest bus station. Exactly was I was looking for. What really made my stay though was the welcome I received from my hosts. They had great ideas of things to do and even invited me out for an evening. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and there was always a fresh pot of tea to be shared. Have been recommending this place to everyone!

  • I had a really pleasant stay at Tanny's and Jonas's home in Nuuk. Their flat really has a splendid view across the bay, the hosts were very trustful and I could use the kitchen and their wifi - for free, which is really a great gift in Greenland.
    They even invited me for dinner on my first evening in Nuuk and Tanny gave me an invitation for a kind of a talkshow she was hosting - that ment meeting interesting folks and having another dinner for free...
    So they had lots of ideas what to do, a nice and clean accomodation, cool and stylish and well connected to Nuuk City by bus.The best place I had during my stay in Greenland.
    What you have to keep in mind: there are lots of new houses build around that place, so you may get muddy shoes and there may be some noise from the building sites around.

  • I would highly recommend. I stayed with Tanny and Johan for a little over a week and had a wonderful time. They are very thoughtful and helpful. Breakfast is wonderful and the tea stock is quite nice.
    The room is gorgeous and clean. Qinngorput is a little out of the way but it is so easy to catch the bus that you will hardly notice and the ride in and out is a nice break.

  • Very special couple, they helped us with dirrecting us to the must see hot spot. They had a layed back aditude which helped in making us feel a home. We had two nice dinners with our host which led to interesting conversations. I would rent from them again because of their kindness toward my 20 year old son, he enjoyed the Internet that was provided at no extra cost. The weather prevented us from taking a boat tour, we will be back. Thanks again, Rod & Todd Wilkes

  • Amazing stay! Tanny and Jonas were so accommodating, generous, and full of recommendations of things to do in and around Nuuk. My colleague and I traveled to Greenland for a week long research grant, and by far one of the best parts of our trip was spending time with Tanny and Jonas. The hosts are sociable, but also very sensitive to your needs if you have desire for privacy. The apartment was full of light, spacious, and very clean. Breakfast was spot on, as were our many conversations (and debates). Also, free wireless internet is a HUGE benefit to staying here with Tanny. Otherwise you will pay 50 kr/hr elsewhere in the city.

    The apartment is located in Qinngorput quick bus ride or 15-20 min. walk to downtown Nuuk located conveniently near a grocery store, at the base of Store Malene. The living room offers beautiful views of the Nuuk harbor, with an exterior porch for a nice bbq. Our first day in Nuuk we joined Tanny and Jonas for a fantastic hike to the summit of Store Malene, and enjoyed panoramic views of the Nuuk area over a dinner.

    My expectations for Airbnb have been severely raised by this experience. This is absolutely, hands down the place to stay if you are travelling to Nuuk on a budget, or just in general. I know because we stayed in some less than desirable places during the second half of the week! I couldn't have asked for a better stay or hosts.

  • I spent there 4 days because my fligh was cancelled during 2 days and my idea was to be one week in Greenland. My trip started in a very bad way but improved when I watched this very nice apartement with incredíble view and all details that the owner offered me to feel well.
    I highly recomend her because she is the perfect host.

  • I recently returned from a fantastic stay in Nuuk!

    The host was so friendly and welcoming. She was even willing to sharing some insider tips about where to find the best coffee in town! I wish all hosts could be like her!

    The apartment/room was lovely. There was a ton of natural light and panoramic views of the city, water, and mountains. It was so relaxing to sit on the balcony and look for whales from the comfort of my own place. Just being there made me happy! Also, there was an elevator in the building – a luxury for Nuuk, especially with heavy luggage!

    What is around? This apartment was in a purely residential area, but there was a city bus stop very close by. The bus ran like clockwork, and it took 12 minutes to get to city center (fare = 15 kroner). The best part about the apartment’s location was its proximity to nature. As in, walk out the door and there are hills to walk in, 2 mountains to climb up, and coastline to discover.

    I highly recommend this property!
