I stayed in Kris's flat for a month with 2 other friends.The place is accessible to public transpo and convenience stores. It is complete in terms of utilities/facilities. Space is very ample and really comfortable to stay at. Internet connection is superb! But aside from the flat itself, what we really like and commend is the host.
Kris was very accommodating; with all of my inquiries, questions, and requests. She replied to all of my emails. Her father was also amazing! When we first went to the area, we got lost. It was kind of him to meet us where we stopped and lead us to the flat. He was also available to answer our concerns as well.
With this place, you will never go wrong. To sum it up, we had a wonderful experience with this beautiful flat and kind owner.
I have a tip for future guests. If you're carrying a lot of baggage and you're on a tight budget, take Nydalen Bus 30 from Oslo S (Jernbanetorget) and get off at Nordpolen Skole (Bus Stop). From there you cross the street and go left. Kris's flat is really near this stop. You can also take the trikk (tram 11, 12, or 13)
My colleague Hari's review for his stay at Kris' place. "Very comfortable place to stay at. Very beautiful and stylish furniture and some great photography/artistic hang outs. The private room was comfortable, on the third floor with windows overlooking the street. It seemed like a quiet neighborhood. Judging from the books on the bookshelves, Kris has an excellent and eclectic taste in photography. Location is very well connected to all kinds of transport like Tram/T-bane/Bus where we can go to almost any place in Oslo. Also there is a nearby Indian Restaurant where we can get good Indian food along with neighborhood Norwegians Apent Bakeri. There is a park for my kid to play after my office hours where he enjoyed a lot. I enjoyed my time there, and recommend this place if you are looking to stay in the Oslo.
Great place right in oslo city center. The apt is in a quiet family neighborhood with easy acess to grocery shops, public transportation and a few restaurants. Only 3 stops to central station! There is a bakery super close that was great to have coffee in the moring and a pastry. We sat outside during a sunny day and felt a part of the neighborrhood. The apt has a cozy feel and great amenities. Kristen was easy to keep in contact with during our stay. She and her father were very accomidating about our late arrival time after a full day of touring coming from Bergen. Would very much recommend, especially for a small famly bc she has use of a baby cot and great black-out curteins in the bedroom. Wonderful!
Lovely and cosy little apartment near city center. Me and my two daughters enjoyed our stay here and have had a wonderful summer in Oslo. Thanks to Kris and her father who are always in touch and helpful. I highly recommend them.
I rented this place for one of my empoyees' short stay in Oslo. Right from the initial contact with Kris, she had been very amiable, cooperative and understanding. She accommodated most of my requests and was very helpful in providing tips and support to the guys who stayed at her place. I would strongly recommend this awesome place and I would certainly rent out this place when I get a chance. Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to stay in this place for my ownsake in July as this has been already booked. Though she was remote, she excellently managed the logistics and other needs and always responsive with quick turnaround.
These are the exact words by the guest who stayed at her place.

Great little apartment in a nice location...with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Oslo...Kris could NOT have been more in touch and helpful about everything. Couldn't have been happier. Tom and Bill
Perfect!!! it is the best word which describes our stay at Kris'flat. The flat is beautiful, stylish... as the neighborhood. It is not just in the center, but Oslo is a nice place to walk and has lots of transport. The price is fair; Kris cares about everything, the time you arrived to Oslo, even if she is out of the city. I recommend the Apent Backery to have breakfast because they're nice and you could see a little of a norwegian family life. This was our first time with airbnb and now I can say that I am going to repeat..... :-)
Kristin was a joy. She was respectful, kind and thoughtful. Her dog was quiet and completely well-behaved! She is always welcomed back with open arms.
Great person and a delight! excellent communication, clean and responsive!
Kris & Herb is always welcomed back to Tjuvholmen anytime! Wonderful guests to have staying, very positive, good communication, and left the place it perfect working order!
Highly recommended. :-)
Kris & Herb came to a family celebration in Haifa and they are really nice !
Kris and herb were such wonderful guests- responsible, tidy, left the cottage in perfect shape, and most of all, showed such a kind and flexible nature, as we worked around a little construction noise issue going on at a neighboring house. Although we didn't meet, I felt there was great communication, both before and throughout their stay. I could tell Kris and Herb enjoyed being at the shack, took sweet care of the space, and I really hope they will return one day. Super fabulous guests.
Bente and Stein, Kris's parents from Norway, stayed in our studio for two weeks. They are wonderful people and left the place spotless. They were kind and caring and to see them daily and have nice little conversations and learn about Norway was always a joy. This couple is gem!! We will miss them.
Kris and Herb were good guests and easy to communicate with. We are a pet friendly cabin, but their dog left quite a bit of dog hair on one of the bed quilts, which required a wash in the Truckee Laundromat industrial sized washer. Maybe a sheet over the bed to protect the quilt would have prevented this.
Enjoyed hosting Kris and Herb. Everything went smoothly.
Great guests ! Kris and Herb left the studio very clean - I would definetly recommend them !
Having Kris and Herb as our guests was an absolute pleasure, and I look forward to having them as guests again. They are one of the reasons that I now love airbnb so much.
