Interaction with Guests
I do holiday rental, not hosting so the interacting with guests will be at check-in unless otherwise agreed. You can of course make contact any time if you have any questions, I keep my phone on the bedside table ready to receive airbnb notifications :) When I am not in Bergen, my daughter act as a caretaker. In order to keep the check-in/check-out times flexible, guests must sometimes collect the key at my daughter's work place by special arrangement and let themselves in on their own.
A super central location with no need for transport within the city as everything from attractions to restaurants are close and within walking distance. Very pleasant neighbourhood with all amenities at your feet.
Supermarket in the building, organic bakery on the corner, health food store and asian supermarket around the block and several restaurants/take-aways nearby.
Central Bergen is compact and easily done on foot. The airport coach is a few blocks away and the railway station/bus station at 800 meters. 400 meters to the tramway and the express boats, 450 meters to the Hurtigruten terminal.
All street parking in central Bergen is metered short term or residential. Guests with a car will need to park in one of the nearby underground or multistorey parkings.
Other Things to Note
If your arrival time coincides with my daughter's working hours, the key needs to be picked up at her workplace by special arrangement. Early or late arrival is no problem - we try to keep check-in times very flexible.
Please make contact if you need to change your booking. I leave gap days between bookings so there may be some leeway even if it looks like the place is booked solid.
Please read the information folder upon arrival and note how to leave the apartment on departure. Kitchen and appliances must be left clean and tidy, dishes done and stowed, dishwasher emptied, garbage disposed of.
No partying please.
Smoking on the outside terrace - one floor down.
I am inviting you into my second home. Please treat it with care and respect.
Lovely flat in perfect city center location. Close to train, airport bus and city attractions. Apartment was clean, quiet and fully met our needs. Key pickup and drop off was seamless. Access to food store and local restaurants was super convenient. Communications with Marit Anne were very good with quick responses. We had a great stay in Bergen.
Wonderful and cosy apartment with a great kitchen where you can find everything you can imagine to cook meals !
Place in the city centre is a fantastic option to visit Bergen.
More than perfect !!
Marit Anne´s lejlighed ligger meget centralt i Bergen - så det meste er indenfor gåafstand. Lejligheden ligger samtidig i et relativt stille område. Vi fik en fin modtagelse og lejligheden levede helt op til forventningerne. Alt fungerede og var rent og pænt.

Fantastic place in every respect and very good value for the money. Great kitchen stocked with everything needed to cook meals, which will save you thousands of kroner. Marit gave us some great tips on car rental and check in was smooth. We enjoyed bergen and I can't imagine staying anywhere else if we return in the future
We stayed in Marit's place for four nights and felt right at home in the middle of Bergen. It worked out perfectly for us, as we were looking for a quiet, well-located, and inexpensive place to make dinner and spend the night after long days of exploring this amazing city. If that's the type of situation you're looking for, then I would happily recommend Marit's home to you. The location is fantastic -- it truly is walking distance from just about everything, right in the heart of the city, but it's off the street overlooking a quiet courtyard so there wasn't any noise to keep you up at night. The apartment is very clean, cozy, and well-stocked with cooking supplies. The local market is pretty big and literally right next door... It was great to be able to save some money by cooking for ourselves part of the time. We had absolutely no issues with the booking -- Marit was very responsive and accommodating, and her daughter was ready and waiting for us with keys in hand when we arrived.
What a great way to end a tour of Scandinavia!!! We feel very lucky to have chosen this perfect clean apartment and doubly lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Marit. Our accommodations met all our needs and more. It was so nice to be able to sleep in a comfortable bed for more than two nights in a row. The apartment couldn't have been located in a more convenient spot...close to the wharf, close to a variety of shopping outlets and having a little grocery store right beneath you was very helpful. We can't think of one thing that a guest would need that wasn't supplied. We are very thankful for Marit's generosity in sharing her apartment in Bergen.

About the Host, Marit Anne
Semi-retired, living in the south of France in winter and north Norway in summer. The best of both worlds ! :)
I love to travel and I am a big fan of home exchange and have made more than 30 successful exchanges so far.
I like the great outdoors, gardening, walking/hiking, cycling, something I now can do year round when spending the winters in France.
I am also fortunate to have a second home in Norway that I can share with other travellers.
