Other Things to Note

On our guys trip to Norway had a very nice stay at the cottage. Everything was as described on airbnb. The area around the cottage, Vang/ Jotunheimen Naitionalpark, is highly recommendable due to its varied scenery. The Sauna was big plus and just perfect after long hiking days or as a bad weather option. Marius was a nice, uncomplicated and helpful host.
Marius is a very friendly and uncomplicated host who has helped us to make best use of his sauna cottage by providing loads of firewood for the oven. The sauna easily sits 4 and the shower has water in abundance. We also recommend the no stress area behind the cottage where you can sit in complete seclusion and watch the stream (cold). Besides the sauna the cottage provides a fully equipped kittchen (including dishwasher) and a large bedroom. We enjoyed our stay in Marius' sauna cottage!
We stayed at Marious' cottage for just one day, so we did not have enough time to explore the area which was very serene and beautiful. The little stream (and the stress free zone) behind the house were amazing. The cottage kitchen and main area is pretty standard but fully equipped and the bathroom is big with a nice sauna that we (unfortunately) did not use. The sleeping area is also very big and fits 5 people very comfortably. The only thing that should be noted is that to get to the bedroom, you need to go up a small set of stairs, which could be an issue for someone with limited mobility. Our communication with Marious was very easy and he made us feel very welcome. In sum, everything was as promised and our experience was pleasant.
Marcus daughter let us in the cottage as soon as we arrived. The building is clean and has everything you need to cook, etc. There is a river to the back of this place which means there are a lot of flies and biting insects, but this is standard for Norway in the summer anywhere. The Jacuzzi doesnt work and the sauna needs wood which you have to buy yourself and as it was warm weather- we didnt bother.
We stayed at this place in the middle of July for two nights. The cabin is really nice and cozy. We had wonderful time staying there despite of rainy weather. The sauna was a great bonus. The shower is amazingly good. The location is also very convenient, right off E16, with a gas station in 200 m and a food store in 50 m. However I have to mention about several things that I wish I knew beforehand. It is difficult to find the cabin. It is hidden behind the two story building across from Joker store. Basically there is no any driveway and it is not obvious how to get to the cabin. The cabin didn’t have any supply of essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo, detergent. You can buy them at the store but be aware it doesn’t work on Sunday (the day we arrived) and closes at 6pm other days (I am not sure about Saturday hours, usually they are shorter). The sauna as I said is very nice and big, but to heat it (what takes at least an hour) you need to use a wood stove in the living room that also heats up the entire house. It worked for us perfectly since it was a chilly rainy weather but you won’t do this in real summer days. Be ready to pay additional 80 NOK per bedding set and make the beds yourself. The living area with the kitchen on the main floor is tiny (about 9 sq. m) but comfortable. The kitchen utensils are OK if you do not plan to make any fancy dishes. However I would add some coffeemaker, we missed our morning coffee. To get upstairs is a little tricky with the folding ladder. Because of this ladder there is a big gap on the floor upstairs what is very unsafe if you have any kids. The upstairs bedroom area is spacious and nice. It has five single beds and a small table with a chair. Basically there is no internet access inside the house, but you can get it at some spots on the veranda. Nothing from the above list spoiled our stay in the cabin and we enjoyed it a lot. The cabin has its own charm and I would recommend it to anybody who is not a fan of 5-star hotels.
A great place and the best possible host in the world! :) We enjoyed our short stay and will be happy to go for this cottage again.
