This cozy one-bedroom basement apartment has a fireplace, floor heating, and is situated in the suburbs of Oslo, close to Sandvika. You can get here comfortably with the airport train, and it is a 30 min bus ride from the city of Oslo.

The Space

Cosy and trendy basement apartment with kitchen, bathroom, and one bedroom. Best for 1 or 2 people (couple), but can make it fit 3 people if you do not mind using the living room for sleeping. Can also fit it for a little family, just let me know if you need a baby cot before you arrive. The apartment sports heating in the floor, as well as a nice fireplace. The bathroom is newly renovated, with floor heating, rain shower, and a washing machine.

We live in the same house, but the apartment is completely private, with separate entrance, and no sharing of anything. Full kitchen, with everything you need, and if something is missing, I will get it for you upon request.

Wi-fi, cable tv and dvd/bluray player (and you can borrow loads of dvds too!). Twice a week cleaning available upon request, for a small fee (150 NOK pr hour). Towels are changed once a week, and bed linen every two weeks (and between guests obviously) completely free of charge.

Guest Access

Small garden available for your use, with a swing and trampoline for your kids (they have to share with my kids, though). During winter there is usually 1-1,5 meters of snow, so then the garden can only be used for creating snowmen. Bring your skis, as there are lots of downhill and scandinavian (cross-country) skiing opportunities in the area.

Interaction with Guests

As I live in the same house, we are usually here while our guests are here. If not, we will give clear instructions on who to call, and what to do, if something comes up.

The Neighborhood

Blommenholm is in the suburbs of Oslo, with 15 minutes walk to the sea, and 10-15 minutes drive to several different ski centers, or areas to go hiking or bicycling during summer. We are close to Sandvika, Stabekk, Bekkestua, Lysaker, and Fornebu, i.e. west of Oslo. Sandvika is a small town that contains one of the biggest shopping centers of Scandinavia (unfortunately with Norwegian prices...).

Getting around

To the bus stop there is a 5-7 minutes walk, and the bus takes 35 minutes to get to the city centre of Oslo (bus number 121/122).

The same distance takes about 15 minutes by car, but as in any city, rush hour changes everything.

You can also take a 3-5 minutes bus ride to the local city centre, Sandvika, where you can catch a train to Oslo, a 15 minutes train ride.

Walking to Sandvika, along the local lake will take you 15-20 minutes.

Other Things to Note

If you arrive at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, you can catch the airport train to Sandvika train station, and it will take you 5 minutes to get to the house by taxi.

  • Very nice and cozy place. Everything worked really well and easily with Christian, so we recommend this place for anyone traveling to Sandvika, Oslo.

  • Very cozy place. Christian was a very nice and welcoming host. Loved the heated floors.

    January 2014
  • Grate place to stay even on a business trip. WiFi Internet, table for work and dining. All kitchen utensils what might be needed and even a basic food stock were available. So it saved me time. I loved the country style and smell of firewood nicely prepared by the host near the fireplace. All Amenities are working well. It felt a bit could from the beginning but I found the hitter control and it was warm and comfortable after small adjustment. The host was very helpful and easy to reach. Definitely I recommend the place to anybody and will come again on the next occasion.

  • Clean, warm and comfortable apartement with everything you might need. Quite close to Oslo, and only 5min from Sandvika Storsenter, Scandinavia's biggest shopping center (perfect when the weather is bad;) ).
    Christian was always really helpful, and we really felt safe in the apartment.
    Me and my kids (3 and 12) enjoyed our stay very much and we can definitely recommend Christians apartement.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Christian's apartment. We can't recommend it enough. Our stay was for three nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was the perfect size for my husband, my toddler, and myself. We received a very warm welcome from Christian and Marcela. Everything that we needed for our stay was provided in the apartment. Our daughter throughly enjoyed playing outside in the garden. It was very close to Oslo which was very convenient. The area was quiet and absolutely beautiful.

  • We (my wife, I and our 2-year old boy) had a pleasant stay at Chris' house. The place is very comfortable and has almost everything you will need. The price to quality ratio is great! Chris is also very helpful in case we have questions. We would stay here again if we visit Oslo next time.
