Private room, sharing bathrom, kitchen, balcony and lounge with host. Shared lawn accessed by a few steps down from the balcony, where if lucky you can have a chat with the nice neighbours! Quiet neighbourhood which provides a truly realistic insight into everyday life in eastern Oslo.
Easy to reach from city centre by metro/bus within 25 minutes, as well as easy access to a trek in the woods.
You have access to wireless internet, towels, ready made bed. There is tea and coffe in the kitchen, which you can help yourself to at any time. Feel free to use the balcony or lounge or feel free to withdraw to your room. I am available to give advice on Oslo in general on where to go, what to see and where too eat. You are welcome to dine at home, and feel at home.
The apartment is on the first floor, it contains two bedrooms, a small hall, one bathroom, kitchen, lounge and a space for dining. There is also my precious balcony with a sofa and a barbecue, and entrance to the shared lawn with tables and benches.
Within 5 minutes there are several busstops and two supermarkets. It takes 10 minutes on bus to get to the woods where there are plenty of trails and small lakes. If the timing is right you can borrow my bike (s) to go there or to the citycentre.
I believe a stay at my place is best for young friends or couples, one parent and child, or other openminded people in general. We are also a gay and lesbian friendly household.
Everything. Feel at home!
Interaction with Guests
Quite a lot if you feel like it.
Quite easy if you are used to use public transport. Be aware that if you travel on a budget get your transportation sorted out. Oslo is expensive if you do not have a travelcard as described on worldwideweb RUTER norway.
Never had a difficult guest. I bet you will contribute to this wonderful tradition. You are most welcome :-)
This place was great. I was a little worried that it would be too out of the way since it is in the suburbs, but we actually loved being outside of the city a little bit. The area is gorgeous, and it is close to the public transportation and the airport shuttle. The room was a little small, but it worked well for us. Siv and her son were very accommodating and helped us navigate Oslo as well as giving us some tips on what to do and see. Highly recommended!
If you are coming from/going to Gardermoen Airport I would suggest using public transportation. I think it costs 90NOK while the airport express cost 160NOK.
I stayed in the Idyllic suburbia for five days. Nice, clean, comfortable appartment with free Wi-fi close to the city center. The owner of the apartment Siv was not at home during the first days of my stay, but her polite son did my chek-in. Towels and bead sheets were ready. I had a great stay in the Idyllic suburbia.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Siv is very Kind and easygoing, we felt just at home. She gave us a lot of information and share things with us. The room is clean and quiet for a short stay. The experience was great!
Siv was a great host! On our arrival, she gave us a lot of recommendations on what to do in Oslo. Me and my friend stayed for six days, and we felt at home in her house. The bedroom is small, but really comfortable, and the kitchen is fully equiped and it is easy to find all that you need. We enjoyed a lot our stay in Oslo, and following her recommendations we did a lot of non-touristic programs, like a hike in the woods to a great lake and even going to an open festival in the forest.
The appartment is not very near the city centre, but there is a bus station in just a 5 mins walk, where you can take a bus to the metro station, or walk 20 mins to get there directly. We woke up early and came back at night, so that wasn't a problem for us, but I guess if you came late at night you would need to ger a taxi.
We loved Oslo and our stay at Siv's home, and would have stayed even more if we could.
Siv was a incredible house holder. We were like in our houses, in a very relax condition. Siv' s house was near to city center. It takes 20 minutes to city center by metro. Certainy I would stay in her house , If I come to Oslo again.Especially her house's garden and balcony were great.Thank you Siv..
Siv is a very helpful and welcoming host. Idyllic suburbia is well connect to an efficient public transport network that allows you very easily and comfortably to visit both central Oslo and the surrounding area.
Active and sporty, working full time. Love traveling myself and appreciate to welcome travelers when I have to be at home myself. I spend much of my time outside, on my bike, with my skis or downtown with friends. When at home I spend more time in the kitchen than in front of the telly. Or I might just sit down reading. I love living in Oslo and will be glad to share some of my enthusiasm about this place with future guests as I already have done with the ones staying at my place through (website hidden).
