Our place is only 3 minutes walk to the subway and a short ride to Oslo. You'll love to stay surrounded by nature in the countryside, and still very close to the city, the fiord and all the attractions. We welcome singles, couples and furry friends to our cozy dog-loving, eclectic peaceful and friendly home. We're happy to lend you guitars or books, or even art-supplies if you feel creative :) Nature, veggie-food, culture, sports or citylife, we have it all :)
Kolsås is apeaceful small community in the "countryside", but still very close to Oslo and the great variety of cultural life which we enjoy as often as possible. We moved here specifically to live conveniently close to the subway station, and still be able to enjoy open skies and fields, rivers and forests. Our building has 6 appartements and we live on the first floor - only 5 small steps up.
We are great animal-lovers, and warmly welcome likeminded people to stay with us and our lovely dog. Furry friends are also very welcome to stay, as long as they are not overly noisy, and get along well with our dog :)

If you like, we can offer a simple breakfast and also dinner if what we're having that day is to your taste (probably delicious veggie-food, possibly fish;)

Outside this living/diningroom there is a big balcony that you may use. It's spacious, and there are some furniture to sit on, but nothing fancy. We have plans to upgrade next year :)
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions, and if we can assist you in any way. We're happy to welcome you into our friendly and homely home :) Not to tidy, not to messy, a bit eclectic, and very happy. Expect to be repetedly invited to play by the dog (look out for a yellow ball;) Relax and enjoy your stay, we'll do whatever we can to make you comfortable, and ensure you have a good day or more as our guest.
We have our private livingroom, next to the kitchen, where we retire to be by ourselves. Still, don't hesitate to knock on the door if you need us :)
