From October 1, 2024


Welcome to our fantastic waterfront fjord cottage! It is located within the city of Oslo, and it is a truly rare kind of property in the city landscape. You will be staying right on the water (literally only a couple of metres away) and the property has a long shoreline with excellent opportunities for swimming, diving, kayaking, and boating. Uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons! The property is located only 12 minutes by bus away from the centre of Oslo, and there are frequent bus departures from just outside the property from early morning to late evening. OUTDOOR AREA The charming outdoor area has 180 degrees of stunning views of the fiord and its islands. There is an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, a heat lamp, a dining area, reclining chairs and much more. There is a boat and a kayak available for rent. THE INTERIOR The fjord cottage was built at a time when the City of Oslo still permitted construction right on the water. Such construction is no longer allowed, rendering this a particularly rare and unique property. The interior has later been re-designed by architect Andreas Tingulstad. While the fjord cottage is not very large, the design strives to make the most out of every cubic millimeter. The interior is modern, has specially designed furniture, and is well lit with lighting from Expo Nova. A combined heat pump and air conditioning unit ensures comfortable indoor temperatures around the year. The kitchen has a Miele induction cooktop, an oven, a micro­wave oven, a dish­washer, refrigerator and freezer, a coffee machine, knives, china, and glassware. In the living room, there is a flatscreen TV integrated into the wall. The dining area has a panoramic alcove with an 180 degree view of the Oslo fjord, including its islands and the buildings of downtown Oslo. The bathroom features Bisazza mosaic, sandblasted glass and Philippe Stark interior design. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS The beach house has a bedroom with a double bed. In addition, there is a mezzanine sleeping loft which sleeps up to four people in two comfortable double beds. The loft is perched above the living area and is accessed by a ladder. Each bed features an overhead ceiling window which offers the opportunity to fall asleep right under the stars. There are light-proof roller blinds on every window. Used in conjunction with the air conditioning, it makes it easy to regulate both light and temperature even in the middle of summer. The fjord cottage is ideal for couples, families and groups of up to four or five friends. It can sleep up to six people, but the sleeping arrangements become intimate if there are that many guests. UNIQUELY ATTRACTIVE IN ALL SEASONS While this property is a heavenly place to spend time by the sea in the warmer part of the year, it is a uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons. The immediate vicinity to the water provides for stunning views in all kinds of weather. Some winters, the fiord is covered by ice thick enough to allow skating, skiing, ski sailing and kite snowboarding. The combination of heated floors and the powerful heat pump ensures comfortable indoor temperature all winter long.
