About this listing
- Private suite in a wooden, waterfront house in Oslo
- Only 12 minutes from the city centre
- Two bedrooms, private bath and toilet
- Sitting room (with sleeper sofa)
- Private balcony
- Stunning views
What about a seafront suite that has a view of the Oslo Fiord, the islands surrounding Oslo, the city itself, and the famous Holmenkollen ski jump? From which you can step out on the balcony to enjoy a sundowner? Or venture into the garden and dip into the Oslo fiord in the summer season?
We are lucky enough to live in this great spot, right on the water, inside the city of Oslo, only 12 minutes by bus or car from the new Oslo Operahouse and the rest of the downtown area. We are happy to share this space with others, and rent out a suite on the house's first floor. The entire floor is at your disposal, and contains,
- a sitting room with a sleeper sofa,
- two bedrooms,
- a bath and
- a toilet.
Your sitting room is 20 square meters and furnished with a sofa, a sleeper sofa, a table and two chairs; a TV and DVD player; loudspeakers; and a refrigerator, microwave oven, waterboiler and coffee maker.
From the sitting room there is direct access to a private balcony.
There are two bedrooms (one large and one smaller), each with comfortable double beds.
There is a separate toilet and bathroom, the latter fitted with a bath tub. Fresh towels are provided.
The place is ideal for one, two, three or four persons. If there is a fifth person, an additional bed can be added (the sitting room is equipped with a sleeper sofa).
Free wireless internet.
Excellent opportunities for walking, jogging, running and fishing close to the house.
A full Norwegian breakfast can be served (NOK 100 pp). If you wish, we can also take care of your laundry for a small fee.
We speak the three Scandinavian languages + English, German, Spanish and Swahili.
Our guests have access to the apartment upstairs, our beautiful garden and the deck by the fjord.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy sharing breakfast together with our guests, as we find that breakfast is a great time to talk, get to know each other, discuss life in Oslo, and provide whatever advise you might need for your day in the city. (If you prefer to have breakfast served in the privacy of your own suite, that is of course also possible).
The house is located in a neighborhood along the Oslo fjord. There are several beaches in the vicintiy of the house, and plenty of opportunites for walks and jogging along the sea.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT ONLY A FEW STEPS AWAY:
There are regular buses between the house and the centre of Oslo from early in the morning to late at night. Buses leave and arrive (literally) just a few steps away from the gate to the property. The travel time to down town Oslo is 12 minutes.
EASY TRANSFER FROM/TO OSLO AIRPORT:
- The Airport Express Train departs frequently and takes you to Oslo Central Station in about 19 minutes.
- From just outside the central station there are buses to the house from early morning to late night. The ride takes 12 minutes. You get off the bus stop just a few steps away from the gate to our property.
Other Things to Note
WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY LITERALLY TWO METERS AWAY FROM THE SEA? If so, you may want to check out our beach house. While it is smaller than our villa, it is located in the prime spot on our property, literally only a couple of meters away from the Oslo fiord.

Kåre & Truls were very friendly hosts. Their fjord-seaside property has an upper floor apartment where we stayed, and a separate beachhouse directly at the water, which we may visit one day in the future.
From the balcony we had a very nice view on the fjord, and we asked them to prepare what turned out to be an excellent breakfast with freshly baked rolls on our departure.
Kåre & Truls allowed my son to use their kayak, and communication was swift and easy.
This was my first time using AirBNB. After my experience with Kare & Truls it will not be my last! I had an amazing time. The suite was as described on the site. They both made me feel welcome, and communicated all necessary information in advance. The first night I arrived, they invited me down to the deck and we had a drink over looking the fjord. The views are great, particularly at sunset. I would enjoy returning to Oslo and staying with Kare & Truls again.
Würde sofort wiederkommen! Alles wie beschrieben; die Unterkunft ist schnell vom Zentrum Oslos aus zu erreichen, gute Busanbindung und im Nu kann man die Großstadt hinter sich lassen und vom Balkon aus auf den Fjord schauen. Sehr gemütliche Wohnung, bequeme Betten, haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Truls und Kåre sind super Gastgeber, offen, unkompliziert, imteressiert, geben Oslotips. Es war wirklich ein toller Aufenthalt.
It was such an excellent choich. Wonderful location. Very clean and convenient. Amazing hospitality. Kare and Truls were so nice. We appreciate their worm welcoming. This make us want to come again as soon as possible
This place is basically a jewel.
Its such a nice place and Kåre & Truls are such nice people, we were glad to stay at that place.
They gave us good sightseeing tips as well.
Really a special place, especially during the summer place.
Kare and Truls' waterfront suite is perfect. We love the view of the fjord which is just right in front of the house. The house is very clean and we were able to enjoy the privacy on the second floor of the house as well as the waterfront. Kare and Truls are very friendly too. We wished to have more time in Oslo so that we could spend one whole day by just sitting at the waterfront and enjoy the cold breeze with nice scenery. We really enjoyed ourselves here.
