Unique Seafront Property in the City
|Address||Mosseveien, 1169 Oslo, Norway|
|Response time||A few hours|
- Excellent opportunities for swimming, diving and fishing from the property
- Only 12 minutes from Oslo city centre
- Uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons
Welcome to stay in our fantastic waterfront fjord cottage! It is located within the city limits of Oslo, and it is a truly rare kind of property in the city landscape. You will be staying right on the water (literally only a couple of metres away) and the property has a long shoreline with excellent opportunities for swimming, diving, kayaking, and boating. Uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons!
The property is located only 12 minutes by bus away from the centre of Oslo, and there are frequent bus departures from just outside the property from early morning to late evening.
The charming outdoor area has 180 degrees of stunning views of the fiord and its islands.
There is an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, an outdoor hot-water shower, a heat lamp, a dining area, reclining chairs and much more.
There is a boat and a kayak available for rent.
The fjord cottage was built at a time when the City of Oslo still permitted construction right on the water. Such construction is no longer allowed, rendering this a particularly rare and unique property.
The interior has later been re-designed by architect Andreas Tingulstad. While the fjord cottage is not very large, the design strives to make the most out of every cubic millimeter.
The interior is modern, has specially designed furniture, and is well lit with lighting from Expo Nova. A combined heat pump and air conditioning unit ensures comfortable indoor temperatures around the year.
The kitchen has a Miele induction cooktop, an oven, a microwave oven, a dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer, a coffee machine, knives, china, and glassware.
In the living room, there is a Sony flatscreen integrated into the wall. The dining area (which can actually seat up to 10 persons) has a panoramic alcove with an 180 degree view of the Oslo fjord, including its islands and the buildings of downtown Oslo. The dining table can be lowered and converted into a romantic double bed for two adults.
The bathroom features Bisazza mosaic, sandblasted glass and Philippe Stark interior design.
SEVERAL SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS POSSIBLE
There are several opportunities for your sleeping arrangements.
First, there is a bedroom with four bunk beds (and spacious sliding-door storage under the lower beds).
Second, there is a mezzanine sleeping loft which sleeps up to four people in two comfortable double beds. The loft is perched above the living area and is accessed by a ladder. Each bed features an overhead ceiling window which offers the opportunity to fall asleep right under the stars.
Third, the dining area can be converted into a double bed and then offers the opportunity to enjoy the stunning views also while you fall sleep and wake up.
There are light-proof roller blinds on every window. Used in conjunction with the air conditioning, it makes it easy to regulate both light and temperature even in the middle of summer.
The fjord cottage is ideal for couples, families and groups of up to four or five friends. It can technically sleep up to eight people, but the sleeping arrangements become intimate if there are that many guests.
UNIQUELY ATTRACTIVE IN ALL SEASONS
While this property is a heavenly place to spend time by the sea in the warmer part of the year, it is a uniquely attractive place to stay in all seasons. The immediate vicinity to the water provides for stunning views in all kinds of weather. Some winters, the fiord is covered by ice thick enough to allow skating, skiing, ski sailing and kite snowboarding. The combination of heated floors and the powerful heat pump ensures comfortable indoor temperature all winter long.
Guests have access to our beautiful garden, and to the fantastic swimming, diving and fishing opportunities that are available from the property.
As mentioned above, guests may also rent a kayak or boat from us. (In the interest of safety, rental presupposes that you have previous experience with kayaking or boating.)
The rental is a separate and self-contained unit on our seaside property. We live in a villa nearby, and we are happy to provide whatever advise you might need for your stay in the Oslo area.

Reviews of this property
Ein einmaliger Urlaub in einer phänomenalen Unterkunft: Schlafen, Kochen, sanitäre Einrichtung, Bademöglichkeit, Außengelände sind top. Die Betreuung durch die Gastgeber war einzigartig. Der Reinigungsservice hat Hotelqualität. Wir kommen wieder.
Ein wunderschöner Platz zum Relaxen, die City und Flughafen komfortabel zu erreichen, nette Gastgeber, schwimmen im Oslofjord, Grillen auf der Terrasse, Sightseeing in Oslo ein gelungener Kurzurlaub
A wonderful, very special place!!!
We enjoyed everything and are willing to come back for sure!
Besser geht es nicht! Die Bilder geben nur zum Teil wieder, wie grossartig dieser Platz wirklich ist!!! Sehr sympathische Gastgeber und eine sehr sauberes und gepflegtes Objekt! Die Aussicht und die Szenerie sind unbezahlbar! Wir freuen uns wieder kommen zu dürfen...
Wahrscheinlich einer der schönsten Plätze in Oslo! Kåre und Truls sind wunderbare und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Das Häuschen steht so, dass man viel Privatsphäre hat aber jederzeit bei den Gastgebern vorbei kann. Die Fotos versprechen nicht zu viel, es ist wirklich so, wie es aussieht. Es hat einen enormen Komfort, gut ausgerüstete Küche, tolles Bad, Heizung sowie Klimaanlage. Die Aussicht und der Standort sensationell (vor allem auch mit ÖV). Steg, Grill sowie Aussendusche steht zur alleinigen Verfügung. Sehr nette aber nicht aufdringliche Nachbarn. Wir würden sofort wieder hin!
We stayed in the cabin belonging to Kåre and Truls on Nov 26th-29th 2014 and there is very few places which deliver exactly what the pictures promise but this is one of those places! The cabin was a perfect space for the two of us and in winter has a real cozy retreat feel, although only 10mins from the centre of Oslo. Kåre and Truls were great hosts and had left us some lovely treats which were appreciated and we met Kåre on the first night and he was truly welcoming. We can't say enough good things about the cabin: space/warmth/practicalities/the VIEW...it is all there....the only reason I wouldn't recommend this place is in case too many people book it and we don't get to go back in the summer to enjoy the outdoor facilities (swimming/kayaking/diving/BBQ) which are all on the private jetty!

Het appartement was prachtig en schitterend gelegen aan het water. Onze gastheren waren buitengewoon behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Het appartement lag wat buiten de stad maar heel makkelijk bereikbaar via de bus. Het was een perfecte plek.
