Charming, high standard apartment with unique closeness to wild nature, and still only 10 min drive from city centre. Serves up to 6 people. 100 meters from vast forest great for walking, swimming, skiiing, climbing, etc. Public transport 3 min. from house.
This modern, stylish and well-equiped 90m2 apartment will offer you easy access to what is truly unique about Oslo - the combination of beautiful nature and urban culture. In wintertime: You can start skiing, walking (or cycling) literally from the front door - tracks will take you deep in the forest past serviced cabins - and 30 min. later you can be sitting in a great cafe or restaurant downtown. All with public transport. Finally you can end the day at home, with a hot chocolate or a glass of wine before the fireplace in the living room.
In summertime you can choose to cycle, walk ,car/bus or combination to one of several lakes behind in the forest behind the house. Temperatures are normally around 19-22 degrees celsius. Or if you rather be in the city, you can have a lovely swim less than 5 min. boatride (normal busfare) from near the absolute centre.
Oslo can be a costly city for tourists, but the stunning nature has no price tag!
You will have access to all rooms in the aparment including the terrace and garden in the back, which has sun nearly all day in summer.
Apartment includes main bedroom with comfortable double bed, a guest room with equally comfortable fold out double sofa/bed.
The childrens room has a two storey bed.
Top bed suitable to adults up to app. 75 kilo / H: 175cm. Lower bed suitable for adult up to H: 175cm. If adult will use the room we can clean up most of the toys.
A modern bathroom with floorheating and bathtub/shower. (not endless hotwater supply but enough for many showers or a hot bath for a few hours.)
We are very passionate about cooking and we think that the best part of the apartment is the actually the spacious kitchen with its light atmosphere and modern equipment.
For outdoor activities there will be at least 2 bikes and one childrens seat to borrow for free. We also have plenty of other sports equipment so just ask and maybe we can help og borrow from our lovely neighbours. The appartment has free parking in own parking space.

Communitation via e-mail is prefered, but SMS/cell phone is of course possible when necessary.
We will not be present in or near the apartment during your stay, other than (possibly) during check in/check out.
We love the tranquility it gives to live with the forest as your neighbour, and all the different activities if offers, whether you want peaceful walks in springtime, picking berries and bathing in summer, or actionpacked cycling, jogging, climbing or skiing throughout the year. As former city-dwellers we also find the trip to the city centre easily bearable whether by subway, car or bicycle.

We are a family of 4 that love to travel - and we also love our home city Oslo!
Kristin is from Larvik in Norway and Sebastian is from Gothenburg, Sweden. we have two lovely sons - Simon 5 years and Even born in 2013. Since we discovered Airbnb last year we've booked most of out nights away through this clever system, and believe it is a superb way of traveling. As guests we have a lot of respect for other people's homes, and as hosts we hope that others will show us the same courtesy! We love getting to know local culture and will try to help you with the same if you would like to stay at our house. Our home will be available mostly during holiday times in winter, summer, easter.
