  • Very pleasant first time experience with airbnb and Helge/Junaida! A taxi from downtown Skien will cost you approximately 150 NOK, busses are probably available for cheaper. Only a 5-10 min walk to Herkules shopping mall, grocery store even closer. The hosts were professional and service minded upon arrival. The little blue house does fit exactly as portrayed by the pictures, it is indeed new in all regards. Big comfortable double bed in the sleeping room + wardrobe. Bathroom with shower/sink/washing machine. A combined hallway/kitchen/living room solution. The kitchen had new fridge, dishwasher and was equipped with cups, plates and so forth. Wifi solution free of charge. +++

  • A very adorable little place, very clean and simple but everything you could probably need is there. The host was very kind and check-in and out was absolutely uncomplicated. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, not that far from the center of Skien, in walking distance to a grocery store and Skien Fritidspark. Enjoyed the stay a lot and really recommend this place!

    Cara2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Blue House is very sweet and cosy. Beautifully presented - clean and fresh with everything you need for your stay in Skien. Convenient for shops and restaurants with the stunning scenery of The Telemark region within easy driving distance.

    Sue2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place to stay. So quiet and clean. We spent the afternoon in the lovely peaceful & colourful garden. We stayed 2 nights so that we could do the Telemark Cruise, from Skien to Lunde and then a bus return. Thoroughly recommend this trip, it is definitely a must to see and the free parking next to the Skien dock/ wharf. Make sure you get a parking pass to put in your car. We did not actually meet Helge but met Junaida. Communication was promp and concise. Would certainly stay at Helge & Junaida's place again. Thanks Brian & Alison

    Brian2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good stay at this location. Only disadvantage, the bed is a little small.

    Ny Koselig og moderne hybel som har blitt forvandlet fra kontorbygg til ett koselig hjem. Tidligere var dette bygget en gammel skofabrikk, så her er det mye historie i veggene. Leiligheten er delt i to hvor vi selv bor i den ene delen. Hybelen som leies ut er ca 50 kvadrat, hvor man har alt man måtte trenge. Kan friste med ett deilig badekar og god atmosfære. Gangavstand til sentrum, stille å rolig strøk.
    Joker rett rundt hjørnet, gangavstand til Sentrum, Odd stadion, kino, Brekkeparken, Ibsenhuset og bakkestranda for å nevne noe.
  • The apartment was true to the pictures and met our needs for a night. Linda is very nice and I really appreciated her flexibility in communicating with us about checkin when we didn't have access to the Internet throughout the day. Potential renters should be aware that the apartment only has a bathtub, no shower. This will be fine for most people, but it's something that wasn't clear to me when viewing the listing. Very nice that the place has a separate entrance and elevator for large bags or disabled persons.

  • Great place, clean and good value.

    Michael2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was the second time I stayed at Linda's place in Skien. I had a lovely time as always, perfect for 1-2 people to live comfortably. Very accurate listing and Linda and her family makes sure you feel at home there.

    Frederik2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with Linda was very easy and straight. We had changed the time of our arrival many times, but Linda was always willing to adapt to our changes. Linda's place is awesome! The apartment is exactly like in the pictures. It was clean, nice, and comfortable. We had our private entrance to the apartment. All the amenities were to be used just by ourselves, so nothing was shared. The apartment had everything we needed! It is a great place to sleep in even during the day because the window blinders are dark. We could sleep without being interrupted by the light, which I found amazing! I would definitely recommend this place!! There were a few nice surprises during our stay. :-)

    Great location with a very nice view over the city. Cosy little garden with great view. 1 minute walk to sentrum and to a special park with museums, very old special buildings, lots of flowers and a restaurant. 2-3 minute walk to the home of Henrik Ibsen.
    Short way to all facilities. 2 minute walk to sentrum, great special park, museums and restaurants. 4 minute walk to one of the homes of Henrik Ibsen in Skien.
    Small silent street with idyllic area yet so close to the sentrum, all facilities and the bus and train terminal.
  • Great host and location!

    Eirik2016-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We felt quite welcome, and the host accepted to drive us to Venstøp where Ibsen's former dwelling is. If it were not that we insist to pay him the oil price, he would not charge us any extra fee.

    Coral2016-08-14T00:00:00Z

    Petra & Uwe2017-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Step-by-step throughout the stay, Joakim was available for anything we needed or had questions about. It was like we had a concierge at our service. It was fantastic. Accommodations were not on the immaculate but well-stocked for everything you can possibly imagine. Everything! Several Breakfast items was available to us, so it was very nice and convenient not to have to fetch it ourselves. It really was a home away from home. I can't wait to come back again. I give it a 5 star view. I definitely recommend!

    Peter2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • The appartament was great: large, and clean, and completely available to us, including closets. Right in in the center of Skien.

    Massimo2017-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joakim is a very friendly and welcoming host. He has put the extra effort of stocking the fridge with juice , egg and bacon and bread. That made the whole stay feel a lot more luxurious and welcoming. The appartment is very cosy and has all the little extras, coffee machine, nice shower, nice soap and shampoo, comfy beds. I recommend staying at Joakim's place !

    Unni2017-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Joakim's place for four weeks in September. We were very comfortable. The apartment was spacious and modern. The bed was comfortable. The apartment had everything wee needed, such as washer, dryer,iron, ironing board and blow dryer. Joakim had even filled the fridge with breakfast items and there were delisious half baked rolls in the freezer. This made us feel welcomed and we felt like the place was our home away from home. We are even considering booking this place for our next Norway trip. One episode will stand out in our review of Joakim as host; when he found out that our preference in coffee makers were the ordinary plain coffee maker, he brought over a brand new coffee maker plus coffee filters and coffee.

It is a comfortable, fully furnished apartment with a great view (30km across the town) and everything you need. Irina and her friend are very relaxed and easy going, making the entire stay a pleasant experience.

  • Takk til Andreas og hans familie for et kjempeflott opphold i Skien! Vi er storfornøyd! Kommunikasjonen var bra hele tiden. Vi ble tatt veldig godt imot. Og FOR et flott sted å bo i Skien! Leiligheten ligger i et gammelt sjarmerende trehus, i en helt idyllisk del av Skien sentrum, Snipetorp, rett nedenfor Telemark Museum og Brekkeparken. Huset er plassert utenfor trafikk, men det er allikevel under ti minutter å gå ned til vannkanten! Leiligheten er veldig sjarmerende, med litt skeive gulv, lave vinduer. Flott kjøkken og bad, gode senger. Koselig bakgård med have som er perfekt for morgenkaffen hvis været tillater. Vi hadde det veldig koselig! Takk til Andreas og familien for en veldig trivelig helg i Skien! Jeg kan vanskelig tenke meg et mer perfekt sted å bo hvis vi skal tilbake. Våre varmeste anbefalinger!

    Leticia2016-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Taran is a friendly person. She took contact with me prior to our arrival to make the apartment available as soon as possible. The location, the amenities and the view are as good as promised in the description. However, we were very disappointed with the fact that the apartment did not seem to have been cleaned before we arrived. We arrived on a Saturday and Taran offered to call the cleaning company, but they would not have been able to do anything before the next Monday. The floor had not been vacuumed, the kitchen countertops were greasy and covered with breadcrumbs, the furniture had not been dusted. As it was not an option for us to live this way for two days, we agreed to do the cleaning. Unfortunately, we discover later that the garbage bin in the bathroom had not been emptied, we found, on the bathroom shelf, two containers with some used dental floss inside (must have been there for a while, as it seemed that something had developed around it), and the balcony was littered with paper, plastic bag and cigarette stubs. We asked Taran if she agreed to refund the sum we payed for the cleaning but she did not.

    Dominique2016-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Taran's apartment is modern and stylish. Taran was an easy host to deal with and made herself available, even though she was away on vacation. I would recommend staying here because the home is posh and Taran is great person to deal with :)

    Kay2016-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved the place! Very charming, decorated with a lot of taste, and a distinctive sense of style. Warm, cosy and comfortable, the very scenic fireplace is fascinating, and easy to use. Hosts were very helpful with local tips too. Really enjoyed our stay!

    Igor2016-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable and cozy place to stay, very quiet at night, suitable especially for a couple. Anne-Marie is a nice person! If there is something which could be better, I would mention the curtain, there might be too much light in the bedroom in the summer. However, I give my recommendation to it:-)

    Bjørn Henrik2016-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • This home was extremely cozy and clean. It has been recently renovated and wonderfully styled (as accurately shown in the pictures). It has a nice garden to sit and it is a short walk to the city centre (10mins). It is a good space for a couple or 2/3 friends.

    Heidi2016-06-24T00:00:00Z

  • Anne-Maries place is definitely like shown in the pictures. It is really cosy and sweet and there is enough space for two. The location is near by city centre, just a few minutes to walk. Anne-Marie answered directly to all of our questions and also her son - he committed the keys - was being really friendly and helpful. Thank you that we could stay at your place. It will be our first choice when we will return.

    Felix2016-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Anne-Marie's son was very helpful even collecting us from the train station with our kids and showing us around the town. Anne-Marie's place is lovely with lot's of nice extra touches like a heated bathroom floor. There is a cemetery a way behind the house that was beautiful in the snow and nice local walks. The accommodation is in a good position for visiting Skien by train and has everything you would need for a stay. We stayed with our 2 children and a travel cot was even provided for our baby. Recommended!

  • Everything we expected to be in a home was there. The house was clean and tidy, spacious and well equipped to what any family would've wanted. Eventhough Toril wasn't there when we arrived, she communicated with us throughout until we walked in her house in the middle of the night. Not only that, she also make sure that we feel at home and she provides us useful information that we requested. We definitely recommended her house to anyone and yes if we have to return, we'll definitely visit her again. We wish her all the best in the future..

    Nice apartment in Skien nearby the city center. Bus stop 100 meters from the apartment, and the bus leaves every ten minute. 45 min to walk to center. To bedroom with 120 cm and 180 cm beds. Sheets and towels is included in the price. Everyone who rent the appartment cleans up after staying. Claening up means: take off used sheets from the beds, wash up glas and plates, clean floors and the bathroom!
  • The accommodation is very well described and it contains everything you might need. Having forthcoming and pleasant host who is very easy to talk to and agree on anything is just additional benefit. All the recommendations!

  • Spent there two weeks in the summer and we were glad with our choice... Lovely and cosy apartment, located not too far from city center, a bit smaller shower cabin than we expected but it wasn't a problem. Shop close by so it was nice to get there whenever needed. The thing that we didn't liked was that apartment had poor sound isolation, so we heard doors slamming and people walking above us too well. Host, was easy to communicate.... and all in all it was fair price for the deal ! :)

    Cozy little house for rent in central Borgestad in Grenland. Midway between Skien and Porsgrunn. Menstad bridge right over to the west side. Good bus connections to the industrial parks and other businesses in the region. The house is situated in a lovely garden with river views. Very good sun. You will like our place because of its location, the ambiance, the view and the hosts. Our place is good for traders, business travelers, lovers, solo travelers and families. Welcome shalt / you be!
    Very centrally. A stone's throw away from the residence, and you can fish in the river. Here comes the salmon and trout up to spawn. Great scenery and hiking possibilities in the immediate vicinity. Both in the forest and on the water. Great training opportunities!
    Very central location in Grenland, on Borgestad between Skien and Porsgrunn. Great tour and training opportunities. Grenland junction Oslo - Kristiansand.

  • We enjoyed meeting Kari-Ann and staying at her house. We appreciated her flexibility on our time of arrival. The house is very comfortable and in a great state. The two bedrooms are very originally using the space under the roof (only one is closed). An ideal stop on the way from Kristiansand (ferry from Denmark) to Oslo. Stay a few more days to see the beautiful coast and drive to famous Heddal wooden church.

    Close to the city center, with the relaxed atmospheare you find in the residential areas. Telemark county is often mentioned as Norway in a miniature. The most traditional and typical Norwegian places with coastal areas, lowlands and mountains.
    Great apartment with two bedroms, living room with a kitchen and one bathroom.
    Half a mile away is Telemark Musem, Brekkeparken, with old Norwegian houses and culture.
  • Nice, convenient and affordable apartment with a nice view. Runar was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again..

    Jon 2015-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Runer was very communicative and helpful. He contacted us right away to prepare the appartment for us and was ready to help us with additional directions when we were on the way. The place was very nice with a beatiful view. The place was very clean and spacious. I would definitly recommend it.

    Margarete2015-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the quiet atmosphere and the view from the nice if functional appartment. The contact with Runar was always easygoing and very friendly - even if we never met in person ( due to our late arrival ).

    Christine2016-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was perfect for our stay., it had everything we needed. The view across the rural landscape is very relaxing.

    Mary & Peter2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is even better than what you would expected solely based on the photos provided. There is a small convenient yard next to it with a wonderful view. In a very short period of time I felt Runar and his family are wonderful people. I really wish we had more time to know them better. On the down side, you need to use some steps to go to the apartment, which might be a problem for older people. The location is not very convenient if you don't have your own vehicle. The single beds were too narrow in an equally narrow room (maybe that's the case in Norway - I also stayed in a hotel with narrow single beds!)

    Ippokratis2016-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Runar for an outstanding trip to Norway, the location is very pretty, all things were as described. Very easy communication with Runar and extremly easy handling of Check in and Check out. I can highly recommend a stay in this area!

You'll love my place because it is so cozy, location and hospitality. Close to Porsgrunn and Skien center. My location is suitable for couples, solo travelers and business travelers.
  • Ine is a phenomenal host, kind and welcoming with truly a natural approach. The house is warm and beautiful. It was totally like being hosted by a long known friend. Please be advised: on the map you'll see the house is near the railway, but this is not a factor at all. I'm a very, very light sleeper and i've never been bothered, as it seems in Norway even trains are quite respectful... :D Don't be discouraged, this has been a really great experience.

    Anne2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ine sitt hus er fantastisk fint og veldig koselig. Ryddig og rent. Hun er en utrolig vertinne som virkelig sørger for at du skal ha det bra og føle deg velkommen! Vi var på fotball cup i Porsgrunn, og dette stedet passet yppelig for oss foreldre som ønsket å være i nærheten av barna som sov på skole. Sengene var gode å sove i og vi følge oss virkelig som hjemme. Vi fikk låne alt som om det skulle vært vårt eget hjem. Vi hadde også en hyggelig stund sammen med Ine før hun hjalp oss med å skaffe taxi og anbefalte en nydelig restaurant som vi gjerne skulle besøkt igjen. Hvis du noen gang skal til Porgrunn/Skien og trenger overnatting så anbefaler vi Ine på det aller varmeste. Hun er en unik vertinne!

  • Hjemme hos Ine var det kjempe koselig! Vi følte oss hjemme fra vi kom til vi reisete. Ine er en koselig jente som er lett å bli kjent med, litt trist å måtte reise fra ho. Skal vi til Skien/ Porsgrunn igjenn så er dette stedet og Ine som vert første valget. Vi var i Porsgrunn får å jobbe og valgte å bo hos Ine. Etter lange dager på jobb var det godt å komme hjem til Ine. Huset var alltid ryddig, rent og en god atmosfære som gir god energi og ro.

The best of all : A wonderful terrace where you can relax and have undisturbed hours. Most of the time we' ve been there and enjoyed it very much. We would like to come back one day and recommend it to others highly. Thank you for letting us stay at your place! Chris and Pio (July 2017)

  • Kristiane was an amazing host. When we arrived we met her and Vivi and Gard, who made us a coffee and showed us the ropes. There was an excellent book to help us with all of the house information and some local spots to visit too. The cats are gorgeous (and hungry!) and our kids loved (and fought over) feeding them! The area is great for families and you are 2 minutes from town, with lots of shops locally. There is a playground at the end of the house, if the kids get bored of the trampoline, dolls house (beautiful) and toys inside! All in all this was a perfect place to visit with young children and a great place to visit some amazing beaches (Bamble) from. We hope to come back soon! Thanks! Kathrine

  • We had a great stay in this house. The location was great, a short walk to town and a nice and quiet neighborhood. The house itself was very functional, super clean and lovely decorated. We are a family of 5 who used the house as a base for adventures in Telemark. No complaints here. The house was great in every respect!

And it felt like we were at home. We were with our family with two little kids and they liked the house and the toys and garden very much. There are enough activities and trips around Skien. We hope to come back sometime!

The only thing I don't like is the view, it's right next to the road, where the window from living room and bedroom facing. Not much privacy as people who walk past the road can literally see through your window.

  • It was all in all a very nice stay here in Skien. Hanne is a very kind person and her apartment is cozy, nice, clean and equipped with everything one needs. Everything was very easy, we could meet in the afternoon to hand over the key and at the same time we could talk and clarify about the rules in the house and share some other information. I highly recommend to stay here if you come to Skien, which is a really beautiful city. :)

  • Verten fikk meg til å føle meg velkommen. Hun var omgjengelig, ytet veldig god service ved overlevering av nøkler. Leiligheten var veldig koselig, delikat, ren. Jeg var utrolig fornøyd og trivdes veldig. Fikk også liv p ha med katten min og selv han slo seg veldig fort til ro i leiligheten. Koselig uteplass og rolig strøk. Skal jeg til Skien igjen håper jeg det er mulighet for å leie denne trivelige leiligheten igjen. Topp score!

  • George has a nice place that's laying very central. The flat is cosy and has everything you need. George is an open and extremely helpful person. My boyfriend ended up driving on a roadtrip with him to buy a car. George had a lot of good tips and was good company and the mission succeded :) Thank you George!

  • George er en veldig hyggelig vert som gjorde sitt for at vi skulle få et hyggelig opphold. Han er en meget kunnskapsrik person, som vi i løpet av kveldens samtale, lærte mye av. Sengen var god og vi sov veldig godt.

    Tom2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Es war nett mit George, er ist sehr kommunikativ und hat uns einiges über die Gegend erzählt. Er war sehr bemüht uns einen netten Aufenthalt zu ermöglichen. Die Wohnung ist leider sehr hellhörig. Wenn man also Ruhe und Zeit für sich sucht ist dies hier leider nicht so passend. Insgesamt war es unkompliziert bei George.

    The flat is centrally located in Skien, only 300 meters from the railway station/bus stop, which also has direct connection to both Torp and Gardermoen Airport. To Porsgrunn estimated travelling time is 8 minutes by train, or 18 minutes by bus. The nearest convenience store is 500 meters away, and downtown Skien about 1 kilometer away. In other words, you can walk to everything. If you are travelling by car, you can park the vehichle for free on the premises. The 50 m2 flat is on the first floor of a wooden house built in the late 1920s by my great-grandfather & grandfather. You will have the first floor for yourself. The master bedroom has a double bed and it is a sink in the room as well. In the "TV-part" of the living room there is a IKEA-sofa which can be folded out to a double bed. In the "dining part" it is also a sofa which can be used as a single bed. It is as well another small room with one single bed. There is a basic kitchen with stove and fridge between the master bedroom and living room. All the rooms are decorated with pictures shot by myself all over the world. Wi-Fi is included as well as a TV with something like 30 channels on. The private bathroom is located in the basement (2 floors below the flat), and has a shower. If you need to wash your clothes, it is a washer in the basement as well. You can dry your clothes in the garden weather permitting, or inside. The garden itself is quite big and has five apple trees. In season, it is of course possible to pick some apples for personal consumption. Non-smokers are preferred. If you want to smoke, you can do that outside. Unfortunately, neither access to the building nor the flat's design is suited to visitors with physical disabilities. Some possible excursions to do in this area: * Go with the ferry on the Telemark Canal, which dubs itself as one of the most beautiful waterways in the world. I would recommend a day trip to Lunde. The ferry leaves every morning from Skien from mid-May to mid-September. You can watch what the canal looks like on the Netflix show: "Slow TV: The Telemark Canal", released in August 2016. * Skien Fritidspark, which both have water- and zip-line park. * Brekkeparken - a park that double as museum. It has some interesting older buildings, which includes furniture and other things from the 18th and 19th century. * Playwright Henrik Ibsen was raised in Skien, and if you are into him, it is obligatory to visit the museum at Ibsen Venstøp. Skien also has some nice neighborhoods as Bakken and Snipetorp. * If you're into golf, it is an 18-hole par 72 course 7 km away @ Jønnevald. Grenland Golfklubb own the course. * It is a full size soccer field 150 meters away, which is empty almost all the time. Skagerak Arena, which is the home ground of Odd in the Norwegian Elite League (Tippeligaen), is only 1 kilometer away. * I for one, would in the summer get in the car (or bus) and drive to “summer cities” like Stavern, Langesund or Kragerø or visit the beach at Oddane Sand. All within 1 hour away. From Kragerø you can even jump on a ferry to the very nice island of Jomfruland. * If you have children, or are childish, a one-hour drive to the water park in Bø Sommarland is normally a great excursion.
  • Erlend was very friendly and helpful and had heated the whole flat very nicely for us. The flat is spacious and though very old-fashioned, both clean and nice. We liked both the old things he'd inherited from former generations in the house and the great photographs from all over the world decorating the walls. Only downside was toilet/bath in the basement.

    Nene2016-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This house is located very near the station. Even outside was very cold but the house was warm, cozy and very norweigian style. My family love the house and Erlend was very kind to us. I hope we visit Erlend's house again.

    Ji Eun2014-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and interesting house. Erlend is a good host. I like his pictures about his trip and the special furnitures. The bathroom and toilet is shared in the down flat, but ok. Thanks Erlend.

    Pablo2015-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying in the flat above Erlend's house in Skien. He was a friendly and obliging host, he provided tips about things to do, and the flat was clean, comfortable, quiet and secure. The flat was decorated with some amazing photography from Erlend's travels, along with some charming retro bits and pieces. It was in a convenient location close to supermarkets, the train station, petrol station, and easy walking distance to the city centre. It was good to have cooking facilities and WiFi, and the back garden was large and well looked-after. Highly recommended!

    Fraser2013-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Erlend is a very friendly and reliable host. The stay was uncomplicated, and we felt quickly like at home. I already booked the flat a second time which proves the positive experience.

    Kerstin 2014-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house with a few traditional features and all the amenities you could want. Good location, not far from town and the train station plus easy to find. Erland was great with his communication very accommodating and welcoming.

    Daniel2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Me and a friend of mine spent 12 nights in Erlend's apartment and it was very nice. Erlend is a person you would like to meet, it would have been nice to have more time to share stories about traveling, but since he was most of the time away, we enjoyed looking at his beautiful pictures from all over the world. We liked the fact that we had the opportunity to stay in a traditional Norwegian house. The house is 15 minutes away from the city center, and 2 minutes away from train station. The kitchen was well equipped, so you can cook and this an important aspect in the expensive Norway. Erlend left a long written document for us with all kind of instructions about the house and suggestions about restaurants and other things to see. Overall, good experience, I would go there again! Thanks, Erlend!

    Andreea2014-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Erlend was very helpfull. He explained everything with details. His flat is very cosy and peaceful. It is good localised (near train and bus station). I honestly recommend this offer for anybody who looking for nice place for staying in Skien.

    The farm is centrally located midway between Skien and Porsgrunn. Guests share a kitchen and living room with the hosts, but has a separate wing with large bathroom and three bedrooms at his disposal. Well equipped house with WiFi and wireless networks.
    The farm Aske Dokka located just up Håvundveien yet sheltered by a forest of ash trees. There are large lawns, orchard and plenty of space. No opposite neighbors. There is ample parking in the courtyard. The whole farm was completed in 1929, the farmhouse is well maintained. The owners have bedroom and separate bathroom on the second floor. There they also office and living space. In the main part of the ground floor there is a large kitchen, a dining and a fine living room and a parlor. Here parts host space with their guests. In the laundry room just inside the front door there is a washer and dryer. To the west there is a veranda.
    The farm Aske Dokka has spaces used primarily for grass used as feed for organic dairy. Harvesting of grass occurs 4 times every summer, and then you must expect some traffic of large machines. Otherwise it's a very peaceful place, only with no traffic on a narrow dirt road to the neighboring farm.
  • Very nice and quit place. Per Jakob is a very nice man and easy to communicate. All was ok :-)

    Marloes2016-08-30T00:00:00Z

  • Our experience in the house was completely positive. Very confortable and warm for the winter weather. The description was precise. The host was the most valuable aspect of the house. Kind and friendly, always try to make our stay the most confortable. He told us the best options to have a good time and give us space for living and working. We have spent a great time with Per Jakob and we would like to repeat our experience.

    My location is close to nightlife, public transport and the beach. My location is good for traveling alone. Direct bus, just 15 minutes walk / return college, many departures per hour.
    10 minutter å gå til butikker i sentrum. Stille, ingen trafikkstøy. Garasjeplass for gjester.
    Very nice condominium, residents aged 3-85 years! Walking distance to the woods and fields. 10 minutes by car to the public beach and ski trail. In winter there are buses to larger modern resorts.
  • Very nice stay!

  • Anne is a very nice host, I stayed at her place 2 times and would definitely go again. Her apartment is very cozy and only 15min walk from the city center. She was helpful and flexible with checking in and out times.

    Aina2016-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Its nice for one person. If wifi connection could have been fixed it would have been even better stay. But she will fix it soon. I can recommend to everyone.

    Rahul2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • It has been a pleasure staying at Anne´s place. She is a generous person - a hospitable and thoughtful host, making everything easy from arriving to departure. From a accurate description of how to get to the apartment. Flexibility regarding arriving and departure time. Clean towels and bedsheets. Tasty dinner and everything I need for a good breakfast. Always replies quickly to text and emails. But most of all enjoyable conversation about life and travel. This was my very first experience with airbnb and I feel spoiled.

    Aud Helen2017-04-07T00:00:00Z

  • Anne is a super nice host. She gave prompt reply, provided lots of useful information. She even picked me up at the bus station, and sent me there for my departure. The flat is well kept, very clean and comfortable. The location is good, I just walked to the city centre. Overall, was a very pleasant stay. Thank you, Anne.

    Mimi2016-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • I had a relaxing stay at Anne's home which is conveniently placed to catch the ferry to Denmark from Langesund. You are supplied with everything you need, including some basic food items. One outstanding feature is a secure underground car park which is especially useful if travelling with a lot if equipment, such as bicycles etc. Anne is happy to talk in English with her guests and create a home from home experience. Great value and a recommended location on Norway's south coast.
