You can use our place as a "base" and travel to all the famous tourist attractions in few hours, come back here and then have a relaxing good night sleep. --According to those experienced travelers who have stayed with us for over 2 days.

Very quiet, safe and peaceful area with good views towards mountains. In fact, you will be surrounded by trees and mountains, and sometimes, even clouds. If there is a rainbow, that will be big and clear. Winter time here is peaceful and calm.

Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen und ruhigen Aufenthalt, bei dem uns an nichts fehlte. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und man hat einen tollen Blick aus dem Fenster. Steinar war sehr nett und wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
We had a great night in Gol, the flat was very nice and they even had added small bouquets of flowers from the garden. Communication was fine, and meeting Steinar and his daughter was a pleasure.
Ubicazione buona e casa molto bella con giardino, interno ben arredato ma cucina con tavolo un po' troppo piccolo (d'altronde fuori ce n'e' uno bellissimo); Steinar e' stato gentilissimo e molto accogliente, lo abbiamo apprezzato molto!
We had a pleasant stay at the apartment, which was clean, spacious and cosy. The apartment included all amenities promised in the listing. Receiving and delivering keys went smoothly, and the host was pleasant and showed us around in the apartment.
Gol is close to lots of hiking routes, and we spent parts of Saturday going up to Hallingskarvet. This was based on a recommendation from the host.
We had a comfortable and relaxing stay at this place. The room and entrance was well separated from the host. The room was also clean and well-equipped with everything you needed. Communication with Steiner was good and he provided us what we want although it was not inside the room. I highly recommend this place for the stop between Oslo and Bergen.
Almost at the end of our journey on the way from Bergen to Oslo we had the pleasure of staying one night in Steinar's apartment. He is a very friendly and uncomplicated host, who welcomed us upon our arrival very warmly. We had a nice chat and he showed and explained us everything.
The apartment is, as seen on the photos, very cosy, spacious and clean. We had a very relaxing evening and a perfect sleep in the comfortable bed. What a pity, that we could not stay longer.
On our long way to Oslo it was comfortable to stop by at Steinars place. The quite well designed appartement had everything we needed for our rest over night. Great: two seperate matresses in the bed.
