We spent 7 days in Fredrik’s beautiful country house in Kjerstad, Tjeldoya. The location is very quiet and near the sea. The house is very well equipped and furnished with taste, with a convenient and modern kitchen, a large dining table, a terrace with a beautiful view of the sea, cosy fauteuils to relax, a spacious bathroom and a garage with bicycles that can be used. There is even a sauna in the basement – which we didn’t use, however. The garden is nicely structured and full of little surprises. It is obvious that this is a house destined to be lived in by its owner, not be rent to an anonymous public in search of quick gain. The owner has been extremely generous and trustful right from the start and made us feel very welcome. Although we didn’t meet in person, communication via the internet was smooth so questions could be quickly answered. We thank you, Fredrik, for your generosity – your spirit of hospitality does not go without saying. The house is a bit out of the way if you want to visit the Lofoten islands but they can be reached by car in reasonable time; the same applies to Narvik which is even closer. It is a good starting point and probably a bit cheaper to rent than houses in more touristic places on the Lofoten islands. Norway is a wonderful country worth visiting and Fredrik´s house is a house worth renting! We are already missing it. Thank you for everything.

This beautiful home is out in the country, north of the Arctic Circle. Fredrik was working and unable to meet us when we arrived. It was simple to get into the house and he was able to answer our initial questions by email. He also drove several hours to come say hello several days later and answer remaining questions. The house itself was absolutely perfect for an outdoors vacation. We were there a month and did not begin to explore all the opportunities. We hiked, combed many beaches, fished (successfully), did our mandatory birdwatching (over 30 different species), and enjoyed visiting reindeer and fox. As there are no real restaurant options anywhere near by, we prepared all of our meals at the house in the fully equipped kitchen (and BBQ). Every high quality pot, pan and utensil we needed was there at hand. As we were there for the month of June (carefully planned ahead of time), the sun never set and the house was always light. But the bedrooms had dark curtains and sleeping on the comfortable beds was never a problem. On chilly days, we were kept warm by the heaters (and the heated bathroom floor!) and on warmer days you could create a perfect breeze opening the front and back doors. You have your choice of eating out on the deck, up in an enclosed gazebo, or at the dining room table looking out to the snow-capped mountains and fjord. It all came together as a little bit of heaven in a stunningly beautiful region.

Fredrick was a wonderful, welcoming, generous and helpful host. The house is luxurious and has everything you could think of. Island is quiet and remote and very beautiful. There are nice hills for hiking behind the house and there is a beautiful view of the fjord from the house.

Fredrik's wife waited late for us as we had some issues at the airport to meet us and show us around the house. They left food for us as our late arrival made it difficult to secure food. The home was amazing and felt like "home" immediately. The location is great - breathtaking views as you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The home is quite spacious - and the main bathroom was really special with a large tub and warmed floors. This home was a stand out for our family in our trip to Norway.

We found what we have been looking for: a wonderful country house in a fascinating winter landscape. Having chosen January for the Lofotes may not be everybody‘s choice, but we are glad to have done it this way. Of course we can imagine that it also would be great in summer ... By the way: „we“ means a middle aged couple accompanied by their adult son - everybody fond of photographing (and proud of having catched aurora borealis). Our landlords Inger Lise and Fredrik had done everything to make us feel welcome from the start. The communication before and after booking and while we were in the house was simply perfect. We could not meet personally because they had to do their jobs in the town across the fjord. But they had taken care for everything (unnecessary to say that it was clean from cellar to roof :-). The kitchen was well equipped in every respect. The beds were very comfortable for a good sleep. And the dining and living room with sight directly on the fjord were just wonderful. Thank you so much for everything, Inger Lise and Fredrik - including your suggestions for interesting winter walks. We can recommend this wonderful country house from all our heart.

Très belle maison bien équipée, située sur une île (reliée par un pont) très préservée et calme. Idéal pour faire des randonnées et se reposer en profitant de la vue. Frederik est charmant et tout se gère à distance avec facilité. À recommander.

My wife and I both enjoy traveling and we have lived several places abroad for some years, (Germany, USA, Luxembourg.) We have now settled in Nordland, the most beautiful region in Norway.

We feel very fortunate to have this country resort . Since it is our second home we would like to offer it to visitors. The hospitality we experienced abroad, we would like to offer to you.

We enjoy mountain hiking, traveling, cross-country skiing, cycling, dining, opera & ballet, books, and everything else that life has to offer, wherever we are.

Sometimes we prefer to do absolutely nothing. Just relaxing. Our country home offers this too.

We speak English and German and some French.
