  • My daughter (9 years) and I had a lovely stay with Christina. The accomodation was very charming and comfortable and Christina was helpsome, giving us great tips on what to do and how. We will love to come back to this wonderful place. We enjoyed the forest right behind the house!

  • We had a very nice stay in this indeed charming annex. The location is perfect as it really is in the heart of the picturesque old city and with many walking possibilities nearby. Part of the charm of the annex lies in Christina who is a very welcoming and helping host. The house is very nice for two people and must be ideal in the summer. It is comfortable, nicely decorated and cosy. Note that you have to go out and downstairs for the bathroom. The kitchen is sufficiently equipped for simple meals. I warmly recommend this place and personally would gladly go back there.

    Thank you for choosing us for such a special occasion as New Year :)
    I am impressed how little mess Baloo left, being such a big hairy puppy - dog-owners of my hart.

  • I had a very short but great stay in Son! Christina was welcomming and warm. The annex was beautiful and i was sad to only spend one night there. I`ll be back!

    Response from Christina:

    Thank you Arne A, I am looking forward to your return :)

  • Christina was very welcoming. She went out of her way to be helpful and generous. We were met at the airport with smiles and the scenic route home. The annex is just like the photos, simple, beautiful, clean. We made it our home for three days, a perfect getaway. We had so much fun exploring the islands with the boat. Son has a fantastic deli and lovely shops. The days and nights were so quiet. This is a wonderful place to relax. Thank you so much!

  • We arrived on a very soggy afternoon and Christina was there with umbrellas in hand and offered us Crocs to get around in as they had better grip than our shoes. She was very helpful and her place had such a stunning view. Also to note, right behind the annex you can take a small hike to an overlook that is a gorgeous writing/meditation spot. The photos were 100% accurate and would definitely recommend this spot to anyone visiting the area.

  • I totally recommend this place! I had some wonderful days in Son, this beautiful little town in front of the see. Christina is a great hostess, she showed me nice paths and corners around the town, was totally helpful giving me tips and informations about places where to go and it was delightful to chat with her! Hope to come back! :)

  • We had a wonderful week staying here. The location was perfect for us, just 15 minutes away from Rygge Airport, and just two minutes walking distance to the center of Son, with the beautiful waterfront and nature. The annex had everything we needed to make it a comfortable and pleasent stay, and Christina was a very welcoming and helpfull host. We would love to stay here again!

About
I'm hiking in nature every day with my dog - Ruffen-, and I love to take you with me. Great views are often a goal for our trips. I spend hours in the garden, nursing the flowers, herbs, fruits and berries. The children in our neighborhood often come over to play with Ruffen. In the summer we like to invite friends over to barbeque in the garden.
