Wake up to the sound of the arctic ocean waves, or the ice churning against the frozen sea wall.

The best view in town, 15m from the sea, in one of the most modern houses in Longyearbyen. You are just a few minutes walk from the town center, but can still enjoy your morning coffee looking at the deserted arctic landscape while plotting your next expeditons on the map.

Should you be a larger group, the house next door may also be available. Please inquire.

The space
Two story rowhouse apartment. Two bedrooms upstairs with two single beds in each. A mobile bed is also available if you are more than 4. The first floor contains the bathroom, kitchen and living room with huge windows facing the sea.

The house is built in 2012 in the seaside area of Longyearbyen. This is a 5 minute walk from downtown.

The house has full modern comforts with central waterborne heating in all floors on the ground floor, and unlimited hot water. On the seaside there is a little built-up barbeque-area, the perfect place to enjoy dinner if you are well-dressed.
On the sea side there is a barbecue area where you can light a fire and enjoy the sea view. In the mid-summer months there is huge bird activity on the beach outside the house, with terns and eiders nesting. In the winter you can see and hear the ice churning along the beach.

Guest access
You will have full access to the entire house. There is WLAN with high-bandwith internet access. The kitchen is very well equipped, and there is a large TV where you can stream you expedition videos in the evening as well as a nice collection of Svalbard books and maps.

Location

Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Svalbard & Jan Mayen

The neighborhood, "Sjøområdet", is an area of Longyearbyen a bit apart from the rest. Small seahouses fill the area, and it is generally "rougher" than the rest of town. It is very cozy however, with the sailing club and art installations as the closest neighbors.

Engineer/Pilot living in Longyearbyen since 2007. Lives on the beach with my dog, and enjoys taking in all nature can offer in this unique spot on the planet. I love to sail, and have my 37´boat on the Nordland coast in mainland Norway, probably the most beautiful coastline in the world. Aside from that I read history and science fiction, cook and marvel at the developments of human society. Stay safe, and remember: "Suave mari magno turbantibus aequora ventis e terra magnum alterius spectare laborem"
