    Super Host

 Min stay requested: at least 1 month

  • Description


    We are running a small B&B in old campers and vans in the forest. We need help with making beds and keeping the vans clean, and also gardening. Each summer we renovate another camper, so if you can carpent or paint a bit....or in general is creative it will be a plus.

    Hvisten is a lovely little village by the Oslo fjord, 20 minutes on the train away from Oslo. We prefer that you have a drivers' license and that you don't mind smoking, because we and our guests are allowed to smoke inside the house

    We are very social and like to have people around us. There are lots of people here most of the time, so this place is perfect if you are a bit social.

    Each person will get their own room, unless it is a couple, then they can share if they like. We have duvets and everything you need for a good night's sleep. Some might want to stay in one of our guest houses which are old cars (vans) turned into bed rooms.
