About this listing
Large musician apt located just off the main streets of Grünerløkka, less than 5 mins from the best restaurants/shops/bars. It has 1 bedroom, 2 living rooms (able to divide into bedroom) and a nice balcony. Cool norwegian style throughout.
This apartment is 70 square meters (750sqf) and includes a balcony and lots of vinyl, cd´s, films and books for your enjoyment while home. The style is retro hip with original Norwegian period furniture and a minimum of IKEA :)
If you are looking for the perfect flat that features new everything, this is not for you. The apartment is home to a great collection of music and inspiration. Turn on the stereo, sit back and listen to a CD or play a DVD. The apartment could be considered retro, but it is much more than that. It is unique, has character and just really comfortable to be in. It has everything needed to have a fantastic time in the city or at home.
The bedroom has a king size bed and there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. 4 people will be very comfortable here. The bedroom and living room is separated by the hallway and have doors so you can have full privacy.
I do not rent out the rooms separately so don´t worry about other guests suddenly appearing.
It´s super close to all public transportation. I usually walk or cycle because everything interesting in Oslo is so close. Even going hiking in the mountains is just a ten minute public transport ride away.
Everything inside the apartment. Fully equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, TV, guitar, balcony. Also an unbelievable collection of vinyl and CDs spanning all genres, tastes and influences with a great sound system.
As a musician, my space reflects my love of music and creativity. Just remember to treat with care and with the same respect you would treat your own possessions.
Interaction with guests
Although I spend my time living between Los Angeles and Oslo as well as touring around the world, I have put an emphasis on making sure you have local support if I am not at home
This includes providing detailed directions to the apartment, giving great local advice and being available for any questions during your stay.
Grünerløkka is what most people consider to be equivalent to Williamsburg, Brooklyn or Shoreditch, London. Lots of good restaurants, bars, vintage shops, nice parks etc.
It also is what most people that live here call the heartbeat of Oslo. It is stunning area that encompasses the best of everything the city offers.
There are many recommendations for food and nightlife recommendations in Guidebook. In addition, travel maps, up to date brochures of city attractions and events are provided.
I also am happy to provide personalised local recommendations of what not to miss and restaurants/bars/cafes based on your interests during your visit.
