We're renting out our super central 2-bedroom 40-ish square meter apartment located in the Toyen-district in Oslo (lots of nice parks, restaurants, supermarkets and small kiosk few steps away from the door, it's also right next to the Øya Festival in August! and a lazy 15 min walk (or two subway stops; all lines) from the city centre and 3 minutes tops away from the exciting Grønland-district (or one subway stop; all lines).
Your nearest neighbour will also be the Botanical Gardens, which is a big and beautiful public garden, and one of a kind in Oslo.
About the flat:
It's a spacious flat with two bedrooms and a open living room/kitchen solution, connected to a roomy veranda where you can relax in the hammock, or sit by a small table with two wooden chairs. It's in the seventh floor (with elevator of course:). And if you smoke, this is the place to do it. Great view!
Two bedrooms with futon-style beds that sleeps two, one of them with some kids toys in it for you (or your kids).
In the living room there is a sofa which is excellent as a sleeping couch for one extra person if needed. There is also possible to inflate a king size bed in the living room, so you can atleast sleep 5 persons, even 7 with the inflatable bed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a freezer, refrigerator, aeropress coffee-maker, coffee-grinder, water boiler, stove, dishwasher and of course all other regular kitchenware you would need for making food/eating.
The bathroom is equipped with a washing machine, a nice shower and floor heating. Feel free to use our soaps and shampoos.
As we usually live here with a three year old kid, it's excellent for a family. There is two playgrounds within 30 seconds walk from the front door, and many more if you add couple of minutes of walking.
We also sport a 42" TV with Apple-TV, Netflix, Xbox-360 and quite a decent stereo system (NAD/Dali). You will also have access to a whooping 100 Mbps wireless internet. Pretty neat for those lazy nights (and the rest of the day).

All the best,
Alex, Frank and Mikal (the little one)
