Condo/Apartment
Modern and cozy architect designed apartment with private cinema in town centre location. Close to all that Haugesund can offer, possibly the quietest central street in town. Private garden for outside entertaining. Well equipped kitchen. The apartment is bright and modern, perfect for exploring Haugesund or some of the wonderful fjords and islands nearby. We are only a step away from the quayside, restaurants, cinema and the coastal walk and forest and lakeside wanderings are all nearby. A few minutes from the bus station, the apartment has a large living space looking towards the private garden. The apartment is situated in a well kept 100 year old wooden house, which we live in, built by a furniture maker. We designed and built the apartment a couple of years ago.

Private garden for outside entertaining. Well equipped kitchen. The apartment is bright and modern, perfect for exploring Haugesund or some of the wonderful fjords and islands nearby. We are only a step away from the quayside, restaurants, cinema and the coastal walk and forest and lakeside wanderings are all nearby. A few minutes from the bus station, the apartment has a large living space looking towards the private garden. The apartment is situated in a well kept 100 year old wooden house, which we live in, built by a furniture maker. We designed and built the apartment a couple of years ago. While it is the most modern part of the building, we have kept parts of the original structure visible to give it character and to warm up the feel of the space. It works well for a weekend or a longer stay. The apartment has its own entrance with stair leading down to the large open plan livingroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and a fully tiled bathroom. The dining area easily seats 6. There are large windows and a huge folding door towards the garden, where you can relax with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Please use the garden as much as you like. There are blackout blinds and a full home cinema set up in the livingroom for when the norwegian weather is tempremental! The whole apartment has underfloor heating, so you can set it to your own comfort level. An extra folding bed can be made up in the livingroom if needed. We are easy going and will try to give you all the information you will need. We can point you toward restaurants we like, a good yoga class or local walks on the doorstep. (ask us!) We have a set of maps and guides to the local area, and are quite happy to show you around if we have the time! We are in the centre of town, but in a very quiet street, just south of the town park and a couple of minutes from the sea. The grid pattern of the town means it is difficult to get lost, and we have a mix of new and old buildings in our area. Our street is mostly residential, but shops and restaurants are just a few steps away. The town art gallery is across the park and the cinema is about 3 minutes walk away. You really cannot beat the location for being central. If you have an early flight, you are only about 7 minutes from the bus station, and there are plenty of taxi´s. In summer there are many festivals and things to do, everything from IronMan to the Jazzfestival to the worlds longest herring table! (we don´t really advise a visit to the latter, but it is up to you!) In winter a steep nearby street is closed off for tobogganing. It is very simple to get around. Walking around town from the apartment is easy, the bus station is a short walk away, there is free parking for cars in the street. We don´t have many rules, but please no smoking in the apartment. We don´t allow pets, since we have a cat. Since we are in a residential area please show consideration to neighbours with regard to sound in the evening. Otherwise, please treat the place like you would your own, and enjoy your stay!More

This is a very well designed, very well equipped (from kitchen to Bathroom to bedroom) lower level walkout apartment. And the hosts have a keen eye for welcoming details, like the roses on the table, to the ecological shampoo and soaps, to the supplies in...More

Hi Dag, thankyou for your kind words, you will be welcome to stay in our apartment whenever you come back again to Haugesund. There are many things for you to explore further and much more to discover: I am still discovering things after 17 years!
