- Private suite in a wooden, waterfront house in Oslo
- Only 12 minutes from the city centre
- Sitting room, two bedrooms, private bath and toilet
- 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 space consists of
- 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.
We invite our guests for a welcoming glass of wine, beer, coffee or tea, and we eat breakfast with our guests. If they instead prefer having served breakfast upstairs, we certainly fix that too!
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.
Wonderful experience! Exceptional host, great location. I cannot say enough great things about either. The travel tips for the area, provided by Truls and Kare, were invaluable. I would highly recommend and cannot wait until a return trip gives me the opportunity to stay here again.
I had a wonderful stay with Kåre & Truls in Oslo. The place was lovely, very comfortable and warm, and literally one step away from the bus stop. A beautiful property as well and they left a book of very helpful recommendations and information for navigating my time in Oslo. I would absolutely recommend staying with them and if ever in Oslo again will stay with them. Thanks for a great experience!
I could go on for pages about the experience of staying in this house, but I'll summarize it thusly: I ended up wishing to reside there permanently. Even in a world full of good places, the rooms and arrangement and view and host here just qualified for a rarefied level of wonderful.
We've had such a great time at Truls and Kore's house! Our hosts have been wonderful and without them our trip wouldn't have been such a great experience!
Truls and Kore are both fun, available for their guests, full of good advice and very witty!
we loved sharing conversations in front of a delicious savoury breakfast learning about the Norwegian culture with them!
We really hope they will come and visit us here in Bordeaux! as we'd love to receive them as well as they reveived us!
thank you again! and hope to see you again in 2014!!!

Very beautiful House right next to the Fjord, not even 15 min from the Center of Oslo.
Bathroom with heated Floor, seperate Toilet, Living Room with nice wooden Balkony;
Coffee Machine, Refridgerator, TV, DVDPlayer. (Everything you need) :-)
The whole Appartement was very clean and the beds were very comfortable.
Kåre & Truls are nice hosts, who where very communicative & gave us tipps for spots we should vistit. The best thing for us, besides the nice Appartement was, that Kåre & Truls sended us Informations, how to get from the airport to the house, which Trains/Busses to take etc., which was very helpful.
Before we write a novel about our stay there:
11 Points on a Scale from 1 to 10. Thumbs up!
We just loved the apartment and our hosts! We stayed there two nights and it was better than any of the hotels we stayed at during our trip to Norway. I would only go back to Norway. If I could stay with them!
Great place, great location and Kare and Truls were fantastic hosts. Even after losing house keys on first night ( great start ) Kare & Truls were unfazed by this which was good.
Hopefully heading back sometime next year, hopefully spring or summer.
Who ever thought, that Norwegians are reserved people is proven wrong by these two guys! Perfect hospitality must have been one of their study matters. It's a pity I didn't know them before on my yearly visits to Oslo and stayed in an anonymous 4*-hotel instead. Their accommodation is much better in any aspect: large, comfortable, clean, cozy and with the best view, Oslo could offer. Not to speak of the fantastic breakfast (don't miss it!!!) and the intelligent and funny conversations we had.
So, Oslo has one attraction more: Kåre&Truls!!!
Location: Stunning, right on the waterfront of the fjord. Very convenient bus stop outside and quick easy bus journey into central Oslo. It really is only a 12 min bus ride into the center! So close and worth it for the beautiful views!
Accommodation: As beautiful as the pictures! Very clean, well kept, good size living space. Cosy bedrooms in the winter. Deliscious coffee machine!
Hosts: Truls and Kare were fantastic hosts! (As was Felix). They were so helpful giving us directions from the airport to the house and gave us lots of great tips of what to do and see in Oslo. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them both and staying in their lovely house.
This was our first experience with AirBnB and it was a very positive one. We would not hesitate to come back and stay here again. It was a beautiful and very comfortable home and we couldn't speak more highly of Truls and Kare! Thank-you again for a wonderful time.
Beautiful apartment, beautiful view of the Oslo fjord and Kare and Truls were very welcoming, friendly and very interesting to talk to.
They sent plenty of useful information to us prior to our arrival as well as leaving guides, maps etc in the flat. The flat itself is immaculate and feels like a home away from home. I would definitely recommend a stay here over any other hotel or bed and breakfast in Oslo!
