A charming little house with Midnight Sun and Northern Lights possibilities in Bremnes, 20 km from Harstad. 3 bedrooms (sleeps 5). A nice stay for mountain hiking and other adventures. It is perfect for a couple, or a family of up to five. Boat rent.
A three-bedroom house. The main bedroom has a double bed (150 cm). There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a double bed (150 cm) and one with a single bed (90 cm). There is also an inflatable double mattress if needed. Bedding and sheets are available at an extra cost which is included in the cleaning fee. Wi-Fi access and TV are available for your use.
The house is cosy and warm, summer or winter. There are heaters in the living room, kitchen, hallway and three bedrooms - all easily controlled from a modern control panel in the living room. Details for operation are included in a folder for your reference in the house. There is a wood stove in the kitchen, and some chopped wood is available for when you arrive. If more wood is needed, it must be purchased separately.
The bathroom has a shower and a clothes washer - but no clothes dryer. Clothes are hung up to air dry. The kitchen is fully equipped. It includes a dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer, stove, water kettle, coffee maker and all the usual pots, pans, dishes and utensils.
There is a patio that faces to the east with a wind block that can be set up if needed. Here it is really lovely to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, especially on a sunny morning.
The staircase to the second floor (where two bedrooms are located) is quite steep. This may be a challenge to elderly persons or persons with back problems or walking disabilities.
You will have the house to yourself. I ask that you leave the house in the same condition you found it upon arrival. Please be respectful of my belongings and my furniture. It is my favorite house in the world :-).
I is free access to WI-FI and TV (only three Norwegian channels at the moment).
Bring: In addition to food, clothing and equipment, remember toiletries, linens, towels, toilet paper (if desired, bed linen and towels are included in the cleaning fee).
It is also possible to hire a boat (an open Rana 550) with 40 HP Yamaha motor for people who are used to handle a boat. Contact me for information and prices.
My rules are simple. It is important to me that you feel at home and use the facilities as needed. I ask that you please treat my home and my belongings with care and respect. It is my favorite house in the world :-).
I don't allow smoking or pets in my home. It is a quiet neighbourhood – so loud parties would not be appreciated.
This house is my holiday home, so I will most likely not be present during your stay. I will have friends available to help you, if necessary, and I will be easy to reach by e-mail or mobile.
I am social and like people, and when I am not working, my favorite activity is to be together with my friends and family. I work in Tromsø, at the university as an academic adviser for students. I work with a great group of people and like my job very much.
In my spare time, I love to travel and be out in nature both summer and winter. I play football for the University's women's team, and am a member of a local theater group. I enjoy entertaining, and often have people over for a visit.
As a guest, I am a quiet, calm and orderly person. Perhaps you can see that from the pictures of my apartment :)! I enjoy being physically active such as going out for walks in town or hikes in the mountains, swimming (all possibilities welcome such as pool, lake or sea), seeing wildlife in their natural habitats, experiencing new cultures and tasting local foods. I am more interested in experiencing things than partying. I do not smoke.
As a host, I would like you to enjoy the time you spend in my apartment. I have prepared as best as possible for your stay. You will find on the coffee table a binder with all important and practical information, including important phone numbers, practical information on the apartment, an overview of popular things to do in Tromsø, as well as a map of the area. I have also provided for you information on where to find the nearby grocery stores, bus stops, and medical facilities.
