This place is absolutely amazing! We had the whole house for us and really enjoyed the stay there. We saw from every window the sea and sometimes the northern lights. It was brilliant! We really wanna come back. Thanks a lot!

The house perfectly suited our needs with its size, amenities, location and beautiful views of the sunset. It is a great place to relax and get away from it all. But at the same time, it's centrally located among the islands so that travel to distant towns such as Reine, is easily reached within a few hours.

Siri's sea lodge was a great place to stay for a few days. Far enough away from touristy and populated parts of the islands, and close enough that it's not too much trouble to find what you need. The location is beautiful, the price is just right, and we were sad to go. Definitely walk around the sea wall toward the light house if you get a chance!

A special, warm en beautyful place. We felt very welcome. Siri is very quick in awnsering our questions. She gave us wonderfull tips. Climbing mount Hoven behind the house was fun to do.

Perfect place to stay, especially after many days in small hotel rooms and hostels! There was lots of space and a well stocked kitchen. Siri answered all of my (many!) questions quickly. There isn't much right around the house, but its easy to drive many places from there- Svolvaer, Henningsvær, are both close. The location on maps wasn't accurate but Siri gave good directions.

Siri was a lovely hostess, communication prior to our trip was great and the check-in very easy and uncomplicated. The apartment is in an old harbour building right by the water in an isolated fishing village. The rather strong smell of fish from the stockfish drying nearby added to the authenticity of the place... It is a convenient budget accommodation that is particularly suitable for big groups. There are no shops nearby so it's a good idea to bring your own food.

Great location with beautiful scenery, amazing view on the sunset. Good, budget-friendly place to use as a base for exploring Lofoten with a group of friends. Friendly host also.
