I travel a lot myself and I try to use my experiences to provide you with the best possible stay. Feel free to ask me for help or advice, or let me know if there is anything I can do to make your trip more pleasant.
You can walk everywhere! Or take several types of public transportation if you wish.

Most museums and other sights are also within a short walk. No need for transportation of any kind :)
The apartment is located in a tree-lined residential street, in a very safe and trendy neighbourhood. Green and quiet even though it`s right in the heart of the capital!
There are several cafees, restaurants and small bars within a 2 minute walk, and 5 different grocery stores within a 50 meter radius. Also one amazing health food store and a 24 hour open Seven Eleven three minutes walking from the apartment.

I will sleep in a separate room. To enter my room or the bathroom, I do not have to walk via the livingroom where you sleep.

I will gladly pick you up from the bus stop in Oslo and give you directions on how to get here from the airport (Oslo Gardermoen Airport, Torp or Rygge) Buy the ticket online to save money.
I also have umbrella`s you can use if the wather is moody, and a tiny but amazingly good loudspeaker you can connect to your your ipod/mp3/laptop/ipad.
NB!! I usually live here with my dog, so don`t book if you are allergic to dogs.
WEEKLY or MONTHLY rentals, please see my other airbnb listing.
No rosè or red wine.
No smoking. No shoes inside. No guests. No red wine.
Upon arrival I ask all my guests to sign a normal (to norwegian standards) house rental contract. It will state that you are responsible for everything in the apartment and if anything gets broken, you will pay for it. Of course we look at everything first to make sure nothing is broken already :) As for cups/plates etc in the kitchen, I only have things from Ikea, which is very cheap to replace. I put aside the more expensive things :)
I also want a normal black/white phot copy of your passport (please bring this with you) along with the contract.
We spent a very good time in Oslo, Miria's appartment was a lovely place to stay, close to the center of the town and her dad was very welcoming !
Miria har en liten, ren og ryddig leilighet med alt man trenger av utstyr . Badet er praktisk og alt i leiligheten er feilfritt og fungerer fint. Vi fikk vite alt vi trengte å vite, og Miria er en profesjonell og pliktoppfyllende vert. Beliggenheten er meget sentral og det er lite biltrafikk i gaten.
Me and my cousin stayed with Mirja for 2 nights. Because of the short stay we shared the apartment with her but it didn't cause any problems. It's a tiny place, but has all the things you'll need. I loved my stay, it was clean and comfy, included very healty breakfast and the best travel info you could get. Every day she helped us out with plannig the day trips.
Mirja is a brilliant person, I could have spent all the days chatting away with her but Oslo needed to be sightseen :)
I rented this place for my Mom and sister during their visit to Oslo. They enjoyed their stay and said the apartment was comfortable, clean and safe. Great location and very reasonably priced.

About the Host, Miria
I am a 34 year young, single woman from Oslo, Norway where I live with my rescue - dog Sammy and work as a RAW food chef and freelance journalist. But I have spent so much time in Spain and in New York, that I almost feel like those places are home as well!
I love to travel and explore the destination and it`s inhabitants, and learn about their way of life. I have travelled to more than 70 destinations, so I feel like a pretty experienced traveller.
My interests are photography, health, cooking, music, movies, travelling, hiking in nature, and psychology.
I am a non - smoker, vegan, not religious.
I don`t do drugs, don`t drink very much, and usually don`t stay out very late.
I am very tidy, clean, honest, polite and respectful of others and their things/homes.
When travelling, I try to be inside as little as possible. As your guest, you`ll hardly notice that I am there :) I have lived with roomates on several occations and haven`t had any complaints :)
Please let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about me :)
