The space

Our house is a small, traditional wooden house of the type called “Bergenshus”. These houses are askew and full of charm. The interior is modern. We love Danish and Scandinavian design, and this is reflected in our interior style, which is a mix of modern Danish, Scandinavian teak from the 50s and 60s, and souvenirs from our travels.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make a great meal.
The rooftop terrace has large sofas, and is a great place to relax with a drink in the afternoon.
The 1st floor bedroom has a double bed, a reading nook and a small office with a desk.
There is also a fold out camp bed here for an extra guest.
The 3rd floor bedroom has a large double bed, and direct access to the rooftop terrace. There is also a small toilet on this floor. There is no door between the 2nd and 3rd floor.

Interaction with guests

We will be happy to answer any questions you might have about Bergen and surroundings. We will provide maps of the city, and can also provide maps of the nearby mountains if you would like to go for a hike.
Bergen has a lot to offer and there is always something happening. Please just ask if you are interested in something in particular – art, museums, concerts ect.

The neighbourhood

It is located just below Fjellsiden, the hillside stretching from the city centre up to the mountain Fløyen, a very picturesque part of Bergen. Cobbled streets, narrow alleys and lots of small, crooked wooden houses. The area is green and even if it is just in the centre, it is a very nice, cosy and quiet neighbourhood.
The location is great for hiking up to Fløyen for a great view of the city. It is also perfect for enjoying anything Bergen has to offer. Some of the best coffee bars, restaurants and bars are just a few hundred meters away. Bergen is a small, compact city and everything is just a short stroll away.

Getting around

All public transport is just a short walk away. Parking is on the street or in parking garages. We can provide a map showing you where to park. You can also rent bikes for getting around.

Jon and Rita were extremely welcoming. The apartment is lovely, especially the bathroom! Rita was helpful before our arrival answering questions about the train and car rental. The location is great! I would recommend this listing. But you need to be able to climb steep sidewalk and stairs.

Jon and Rita's home was located centrally to all the attractions we planned to go. It's walking distance from the Bergen light rail and the Bergen Station which was really convenient! Jon and Rita wasn't home when we stayed but they provided clear information on everything regarding their home as well as the grocery shops and recommended very nice restaurants for meals. The home was really cozy and comfortable plus the view from the attic balcony was amazing. Would definitely stay here again.

Great communication beforehand and helpful information while we were there. The house was in a great location to everything and there was plenty of room. The view off the balcony was spectacular! The second bedroom was on the ground level and it was up a bit of a hill but Rita had warned us about that beforehand.

Jon and Rita's home was very enjoyable to stay at during my 3 nights in Bergen. It is centrally located and close to everything (supermarket, airport bus, cafes, places of interest etc). Jon was there to welcome us in and show us around. Everything was very clear in the house manual they provided so we didn't need to disturb Jon and Rita during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this place to all!

Waking distance to every site, quiet, new and clean house. Jon and Rita were very kind and it was easy to get and leave the place. Place is even better than on the pictures!

We had a very good time in Bergen. Jon and Rita welcomed us personally in their lovely and cosy house. The decoration is very nice and we felt like at home.

Bergen has a lot to offer when it comes to nice cafés, restaurants and sights, and we would be happy to advise you on places to visit while you are here.
