We are a young proffesional couple from Norway with two kids.
Karin & Jorgen's home is so beautiful and had everything we needed for an amazing weekend. We actually loved it so much we spent most of our time in Oslo there! Communication was easy and thorough. I would highly recommend Karin & Jorgen's apartment when staying in Oslo.
We had an extraordinary stay at Karin & Jørgen's home in Frogner. It is fantastically located, with Frogner park just up the street and plenty of great coffee shops and restaurants nearby.
Four of us stayed very comfortably, 3 guys and 1 girl. The couple brought their little girl Cami, who just happens to be the same age as Karin & Jørgen's son, so she immediately (email hidden) to sleep, with plenty of toys to play with.
The home is even bigger than we anticipated, with incredible views. Myself and the 2 other guys were in Oslo to run the marathon, so being able to cook a few meals in (email hidden) kept us all healthy and relaxed before our big day. And of course, we all had fast race times as a result!
Jørgen was an excellent fella when we met him, so it's without hesitation that I recommend he and Karin as AirBnB hosts. You won't do any better than this home in Oslo!
Wonderful flat in a very central location. We loved walking to the park and the restaurants in the area (very good and very expensive). Spacious and comfortable. Sleeps 4 comfortably (but not more). Easy location to find and we even had parking available on the street. We will return and try to stay here again.
A great apartment for couples or small families looking for a base in Oslo. Very spacioius, stylish and everyting you could need re equipment. The location is excellent, beautiful and quiet paret of town, near to the park and main tram lines into the centre. Overall we would highly recommend.
Karin et Jorgen sont vraiment trés sympatiques et serviables. Leur appartement est magnifique et on s'y sent très bien. il est très lumineux . Par ailleurs, il est dans un beau quartier bien calme et à seulement 10-15 minutes du centre ville en bus. Il y a un arrêt de bus à deux minutes de là qui nous y mène directement.
En ce qui concerne les lits, il s'agit de deux lits doubles dont l'un est vraiment trés étroit. Difficile d'y dormir à deux si l'on aime pas être très serré pour dormir. Il y a sinon un canapé au salon.
Nous ne pouvons que recommander trés vivement cette adresse.
I traveled to Oslo for the first time on a combined business and pleasure trip. I was accompanied by my sister and two nieces. Karin and Jorgen's apartment was our home for a week, and it felt like home! Very comfortable, in a ver nice neighborhood, with everything we needed! Karin and Jorgen were greats hosts . . . all communication was very timely and helpful. This was my first time using Airbnb, and I am glad that Karin and Jorgen made it such a good one. Thanks Karin and Jorgen!
Our family had a wonderful stay in Karin and Jorgen's flat. It is well situated and has all the amenities to be comfortable. We hope to visit their flat again if we ever get back to Oslo.
We are a family of 2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant, and we stayed for 1 week.
Great apartment in a nice area of town. Very useful size with expansive kitchen and living room. So very good to have people over, and easy access to good places in town. 1 bedroom can be closed off from the living room area, so useful in case one has children that goes to bed early while entertaining guests.
It should be noted that the windows in the bedrooms are NOT CHILD SAFE at all for small toddlers. Another minor issue is the fact that the small gourmet food shop up the road does not accept VISA credit cards; which caused a some embarrassment. Even the ice cream kiosks on the beach in Norway accepts VISA credit cards...
Having said that, if the opportunity arises we will come back in the future.
The apartment was great - close to Frogner Park, an easy bus ride into Oslo, and it felt safe. Karin & Jorgen were easy to deal with and very flexible. They made Oslo a treat to visit.
We had a wonderful time at Karin & Jorgen's appartment. there is no better place to hang out at a rainy day. Frogner with nice cafes and restaurant and the Fognerparken is in walking distance. The sentrum can be accessed in a short busride. Karin & Jorgen have done a wonderful job in supporting our stay. we will definitely come back.
No one should EVER rent to these people. They let their children pee and poop all over the beds and other linens. They left food all over the floors and carpets and walked around on it so that it was ground in, even on the huge deck. It took my cleaners an extra two hours to clean the house. Since all of my linens--bedspreads, mattress covers, etc.--were filthy and strewn around the house, they had to take them out of the house and buy more. There was not enough time to professionally wash them. These people also refused to leave the house when the cleaners arrived after check-out time. They stayed two hours after checkout and twice refused to let the cleaners in. Cleaners clean all over our town and the next town; therefore, they kept having to drive back from other houses, some of which were miles away. It's not like a hotel where the maids can clean other rooms on the same floor and then return for people who check out late. And a hotel charges for another day if guests stay two hours late. These guests told me that their baby's nap might run past checkout time (10 am), but I said that they had to have their car completely packed and everything put away by 10 am, and if the cleaners showed up, they would have to leave IMMEDIATELY. The baby could finish sleeping in the car seat. They agreed to do so but didn't. I have been renting since 2007 with the same cleaning company and they said no one has ever come even close to leaving my house in such a condition. I have never had to pay triple time to her. She said she has never seen any house on Cape Cod left in such filthy conditions. She wondered how anyone could live like that. If these people write anything bad about me, it is completely untrue. They called me in the middle of their week and said they loved the house so much, they wanted to stay longer. I told them the entire summer is rented out so they could not stay any longer than the arranged time because the next guests were coming in at 3 pm on their check-out day. I wouldn't be surprised if they say that none of this is true. As far as I'm concerned, they get zero stars for cleanliness, communication, and observance of house rules. I gave them one star just to indicate that I did not forget to rate in these categories.
Karin and Jorgen stayed at my flat with their son between Christmas and New Year 2012. As my first guests I have to say they were perfect. We had good communication before the stay and covered everything they needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as guests for anyone's property.
Hôte n'a pas pu se rendre à Chamonix.
