Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Spent our week hiking and found the location to be ideal for our explorations. Nothing beat enjoying our meals with the view. Our host was attentive and kind. Thank you, we would most definitely recommend!
A nice place with proximity to Bergen
My father, brother and I stayed here for four days in Sept 2018. We were greeted at the cottage about 1am so that deserves a big thank you to Kjersti and Jostein.
My family wanted some distance from the hustle of Bergen but still be able to enjoy the sights. We also wanted to see other areas of interest by road trip. We got what we were looking for, all while feeling “like a local”. The trip to Bergen is about 30 - 40 minutes. Speed is tightly controlled in Norway!
This cottage is situated at the bottom of a steep hill overlooking the ocean. Very nice scenery. There is a hot tub that was used every night that added to the allure of the place. Even when it was cold and raining, the hot tub water was plenty warm!
The steep hill to the cottage presented some difficulty for my 74 year old father but not enough to be a big deal. There is a winding trail to the property and then a more challenging, direct-access-hill from car to the door. We used the more challenging way each time without trouble. Elderly people may want to consider if they are fit enough for the hike up and down. If you’re a hiker or even minimally fit, you should be ok.
Overall, this cottage was a good place for the three of us, allowing each of us to have our own room (capacity for six). The house was stocked with the essentials and the internet connection was SUPERB! A wealth of information about what to do in the area is available. We didn’t stay long enough to touch much but areas I’d recommend are the Stave church in Bergen (Paradis) and the waterfalls around Voss and Odda. The tunnel system through the mountains with roundabouts were fascinating!
I think that this cottage provided a very good value for the area and would recommend it to anyone but the physically limited.
Thank you very much for your nice feedback of our place. Nice to hear that you have enjoyed yourselves at the cottage and in the area. The area along the West-coast of Norway has so much to offer, and we are happy to be able to give our guests a taste of that.
My self, my husband, and our 3 children spent 10 days at this house. The property was immaculately clean and had every home comfort you could wish for. The situation of the house gave us amazing views from the balcony, and it was so relaxing and peaceful to sit and marvel at the views. The Hot tub was a much welcomed treat at the end of our days out and was the icing on the cake to this property. Jostein and his wife were always on hand, but never obtrusive. We spent wonderful days out in : Bergen, Flam, Lygra, canoeing at Bruvoll, and took a wonderful boat trip from Bergen up Oysterfjord, as well as doing some of the local walks from the house's information pack. All in all, everything you could wish for in a holiday home.
Thank you very much for your kind review! It is always a pleasure for us when our guests have had a nice and relaxing stay at our cottage.
This is a clean, well equipped cabin with gorgeous views over the fjord on which various craft occasionally pass quietly by.
A well stocked supermarket is a short drive away, and the city of Bergen is only 45 minutes away.
The lovely hosts were just a phone call away, and made sure we had everything we needed but otherwise left us alone.
The hot tub is glorious; really powerful jets.
I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone elderly or infirm; access to the property includes a fairly steep unmade path.
We had a wonderful peaceful week in this lovely quiet location. I would thoroughly recommend it.
Thank you very much for the kind review. We try our very best to give our guests a pleasant stay at our cottage. The western part of Norway is beautiful and we would like to present this area in the best possible manner. Good accommodation is an important part of our guests stay in this part of Norway, and that is what we are trying to provide. We are very happy to hear that you had a lovely stay at the cottage.
We stayed in Jostein’s cottage this week and it was absolutely lovely!
The cottage is renovated to a very high standard, with a nice kitchen, a big patio with a jacuzzi and a view to die for!
The location is great - very quiet, peaceful and having a great vibe. Bergen is just 30 minutes away, but when you’ve had enough of hustle and bustle, you return to a quiet gateway to unwind in a jacuzzi!
I would definitely recommend this place for those who want to enjoy a holiday among the fjords.
Thank you very much for a nice review of our cottage. It was a pleasure to have you and your girls as our guests!
Cute, modern cabin on a beautiful fjord!!!
We had a lovely stay at Jostein's cabin! It is located in a beautiful area of Western Norway right outside of Bergen. The cabin is literally right on a fjord and has AMAZING views! Jostein has modernized this cabin very well. We picked it, because of it's location and also for the nice bed arrangements. We have two boys, and liked having three bedrooms with two beds in each.
The kitchen was so nice and had pretty much everything we needed. We really liked having an easy to use coffee maker too!! And the highlight of the cabin was the hot tub on the deck!! It was the main attraction each night as we winded down from our treks and wanted to reflect on our day. It was very easy to use too. The tv got great stations and many were in English! We enjoyed having high speed internet.
We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone!
The area had so much to see. We used Jostein's maps a lot and we saw so many cool things! We drove all around and there are hiking trails everywhere. In Bruvoll, there is a fun place to go canoeing. The weather was great while we were there, so we stayed outdoors a lot. Bergen is not far and we enjoyed the wharf. It was very cute and educational.
Another great self catering cottage from Owners Direct! We are never disappointed.
How do you find the cabin?
From Bergen you drive north on the E39, towards Knarvik. You drive over the 1610 meter long Nordhordlands bridge and Hagelsund Bridge, before reaching Knarvik. At the first roundabout follow signs for Radøy. First follow road number 57 and then 565, and after 4.8 km drive, you reach the light-regulated Alversund Bridge. Drive over the bridge and follow the road further 4.6 km. At the end of a long straight stretch, turn right onto the side road and continue about 100 meters. You are now at the cabin.
