Panorama view on the Northern Light

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Sjøstranda, Tromso, Troms 9006, Norway

The Space

This is an exclusive and spacious apartment, close to the city center and the beautiful seaside park of Telegrafbukta.
Modern high standard 3-room appartment (2008) built on a dock, a few meters out over the sea. You'll never again get that close to the elements without leaving your comfy warm living room.
The building has its own wharf / dock just under the window, and the waters around it are boiling with fish (you can use our fishing rod if you like).

The apartment has panorama windows in the living room and main bedroom straight onto the best view in Tromsø.

The apartment is located a 10 minutes walk from the city center, visited by regular buss routes, and on the way you can stop by the Polaria Museum and other attractions. 50 meters away there is a large supermarket open 8-23 (8-22). The bus stops 100 meters from the apartment and its just a short bus-ride to the wonderful outdoors and skiing area of Prestvannet, and 3 minutes to the city center. It leaves 1-5 times an hour depending on the time of the day.

The apartment has all amenities including:
- Stove*, oven*, refrigerator*, dishwasher*, washing machine and heating. (*bought new in November '13)
- Modern bathroom with heated tile floor.
There is also:
- a 2012 Samsung smart tv (42") - Cable tv with international news and entertainment channels. We'll also leave it connected to 2-3 video on demand services (Netflix and Viaplay or HBO) so you can watch any tv-show or movie you like for free.
- High speed wireless internet connection (25/10 Mbps)

Highlights: The bedroom is equipped with a large comfortable SVANE bed. Top quality custom made norwegian beds.

We also provide a "daylight-lamp" (in case the dark in winter gets to you), a printer and a guest bed in case you need to accomodate a third person. It's a foldable bed, but still has a quality frame and mattress.

Also there are several roof terraces in the building, including on the top floor, that you're free to use as well as the dock (just for walking, not for docking a boat). You can borrow our fishing pole, and we'll be more than happy to help you plan your stay in Tromsø and the surrounding area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Like everybody has stated already, and with much reason: You can't beat the view! We spent long hours just at that window, at day- and at nighttime, and on our last night even saw some very nice Northern Lights right there!
    We were also very lucky to be able to spend our few days in Tromsø in privacy in this nice, clean apartment - away from the fellow NL chasers' crowd (Where are you from? Which bus did you take last night? etc...)
    Situated ideally half way between the center of town and the beach at the South end of the island (which is a very good dark place to watch the Northern Lights without spending money for it), the apartment is well communicated by public transport, and very quiet.
    Simon sends well thought-out practical information when confirming the booking, e.g. street-view links for the main landmarks and bus stops which helps with the planning and saves time.
    A very good choice and a wonderful stay!

  • Very nice flat right at the water. The view onto the fjord and the mountains out of the windows of living room and bed room are priceless! We even saw Northern Lights out of the flat (its still better to go somewhere away from city lights). Supermarket in close proximity. Stay here if you are in Tromso!

  • Im very grateful to Simon for taking our late booking. Directions were spot on and the apartment has a perfect location right on the water. The place is in close proximity to the centre of town and has an amazing view of the mountains also.
    Overall a very nice clean apartment with all the amenities one would need - including the fishing rods!
    The yuletide sodas left by Simon were also very much appreciated :)
    Will stay here again if I return to Tromso.
    Thank you!

  • I stayed at Simon's flat for a week over New Year 2013 with two friends. The panoramic view lives up to all expectations. The bed is comfortable and everything was very clean. The flat has a fully equipped kitchen, and a table to sit at while eating. There was also a big supermarket just five minutes walk away. This is very important given that eating out in Norway can be very expensive. The flat was just 20 minutes walk from the town centre and where all the tourist tours leave from. There was a fold out bed in the office for the third person, but it was only really suitable for a small person. My friend slept on the couch instead which was very comfortable. We also made use of the netflix on Simon's smart TV on one evening. We thought we had the best accommodation going from all the people we met along the way. All the advantages of a flat and we even found a hottub and sauna on the cruise ships passing through town! You can either use them for free or pay a small fee depending on the ship.

    Simon checked in with us at check-in and check-out and was available all the time for questions - not that we really had any as he had left clear and helpful instructions.

  • The flat is great. The view out the window is amazing. It has a great location. The bus stop to the center (bus 34) is right out the front door. There is an excellent grocery store, even closer. The clothes washer was a great convenience, too.
    Simon and his girlfriend even met us at the ferry terminal! They were terrific hosts and we would totally stare there again.
