“A true gem”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Viva Lofoten is one of those places you'd love to keep secret. But that would not be fair to the rest of the world. We, a family with teenage kids, enjoyed "gjestehuset" for two days, and we really didn't want to leave at all. We loved everything about it! The house is generous in all ways - space, decoration, equipment, views - everything is far beyond what you normally expect. We just relaxed in the house and strolled along the shore collecting shells. We even spotted porpoises, seals and eagles! And at night we could watch the midnight sun from our beds. Thank you, Vibeke, for sharing your glimpse of paradise with us.

We visited in late May and rented the guest house. It is perfect, I can't think of a thing missing in the guest house, even thermos bottles to keep drinks warm on the go, candles for a nice evening at "home" or a water cooker was there!!! And then there was Vibeke who tried her very best to make us feel welcome. She prepared breakfast every morning with different breads, lunch meats and cheeses. She set the table so nicely!
Perfect to watch the midnight sun! There is even a bench to sit at the beach and watch for the sun to go down. A nice rocky beach to walk along and look for sea shells and rocks. We even found sea urchin shells in different colors!

We loved, loved our home away from home and hope to come back someday!

Vibeka was a wonderful host- nothing too much trouble, This is an isolated beautiful spot from which you can borrow bikes, paint, read or sightsee.
We started out in a room in her house and when the guesthouse became available, she was happy to move us across . From the guesthouse there is a magnificent view of the midnight sun - if you are fortunate to be there when it is not cloudy. The light is magic and if we had been painters there is an artists studio available.
It is room only but you have access to a kitchen if you want to cook.
