The location was great, just a short walk from the centre of Flam where you find shops and restaurants. Extremely peaceful and stunning scenery. The cottege was beautiful, clean and welcoming and everything needed for a great stay. It also comes with a boat which is great for exploring further down the valley.
Anders was a great host, very helpful, especially when we couldn't get the boat engine to start he came straight to our rescue!
I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit the Fjords.
Overlooking the fjord, these cottages are nearly without fault. The hosts are great, showing you the ropes of the place and the small-engine boat that comes with it. You have everything you need - cooking stuff, wifi, washer/dryer, and a bunch of spices, etc that you dont think about until you need them.
Don't hesitate staying here - can't find a better set-up!
This is the most amazing place. We spent two nights of our week-long trip in this cottage, and all agreed that if we could do the vacation again, we would spend the full week here. The cottage was clean, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the location was perfect -- far enough away from the tourist center so that it felt private but close enough that it was easy and quick to get to the shops and transportation. If we find ourselves in Norway again, we will be staying in this cottage!
We stayed here at cottage no.1 for 3 nights ( wished we had stayed longer) and we were amazed ! Nice clean cottages , well equiped , wood oven and a great view at the fijord . The owners are very friendly and welcoming . You just can stay here and enjoy the breathtaking view of the fijord , watch the cruise ships come and leave or even take a trip in the boat wich is free to use for every cottage . In the area around flam you can take a day trip to Stegastein view point ( higly recommended - if you aren' t affraid of hights ) or to Borgund Stave church or explore the fjiords around .
The house itself has everything you'll need , kitchen is better equiped than usually in vacation rentals . Bathroom is clean . Dishwasher , stove , woodoven , Weber kettle grill , small fishing equipment , fire wood provided , lifewests for boattrips and and and . Next stay in Norway will defently be here ! Thanks Sue,Anders and Torstein !
My wife and I stayed here two nights and loved it! The cabins are literally built on the water and have amazing views from all the windows in the living room & upstairs bedroom. Inside the decor is very rustic with lots of knotty pine and a wood-burning stove that we used both evenings. If you stay here, be sure to end each day just relaxing in the cabin-- simply get the stove burning, grab your favorite drink and take in the views. I'm so glad we stayed here rather than at one of the hotels in town.
The boat that comes with the rental was great as well. No need to splurge for one of the local kayaking excursions when you can go to all the same places with this boat. Plus you have more flexibility-- you can take the boat out as early or as late as you want, and stay out for as short or as long as you'd like.
Anders was extremely helpful and responsive the entire time, from when I first inquired about the property through check-out. I highly recommend this place.
