About this listing
A welcoming home away from home with only nature at your doorstep! Best for one single PhD student, researcher, professional or traveller interested in life, politics and culture. Most of the time, you will share our home with us. Easy bus ride into town right in front of residence.
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 120cm 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.
Wireless internet is free to use.
You are welcome to make yourselves at home. We provide fresh clean towels, linen and good quality bathroom toiletries. A simple help-yourself breakfast with bread, cheese, jam, muesli and yoghurt (or skyr) and refreshments such as juice, tea and coffee are always available.
We are sensitive to your needs and can help you as much as you need when you are here - though note we are both working. We also respect your desire for privacy.
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 small grocery store is a short walk away, and the bus stop is right outside the house (20 minutes with latest bus timetable, the most scenic bus ride in the world).
We are also 5 - 10 minutes drive by taxi to the airport, costing about 100 kroners. Connecting buses from the airport run once an hour.
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!
Nothing is off limits but we ask that you respect our home and treat it with care. You're welcome to ask if you are unsure about something.
Interaction with Guests
We work so are not always at home, but we are there to help whether it's by phone, email or in person. Some of our guests have joined us for whisky nights with our friends, others have just done their own thing. On occasion we might be travelling so you may have the place to yourself.
Once you step outside, you are very close to the nature and ready for walks.
There is a bus available into the city, and it stops right outside our apartment complex. During peak hour it runs every 10 minutes, normally every 20, and during the evenings every 40 minutes. If you search 'Nuup Bussi' you can find the calendar. The bus takes 20 minutes to get into the city. It is a most scenic and interesting bus ride!!
Taxis are 150kr per trip into the city.
You can walk into town in about 1 hour with a short cut, but if you take the road it will be more likely 1 hour 20 minutes.
- Please smoke on the balcony and not inside.
- You are welcome to use the kitchen and living space but please clean up after yourselves.
- Please don't wear shoes indoors.
- Please consider the neighbours and keep noise-levels to a minimum between 10pm and 7am.
- There is a 1000kr security deposit per key. This is because that's how much it costs us to replace it if it's lost.
- Thank you and welcome to our home!
