  • Description


    Welcome to our place by the fjord. We are a coupple who started up a small cabin rental business in 2020. Yes, the year the pandemic started. We still had an ok summer, renting out two modern cabins to mainly norwegians, but also some international guests. One of the cabins is a treetop cabin, (15 sqf.) which is very popular at the moment. The cabin is grounded by a steel phrame, but it is situated on a platou overlooking a forest, about a 100 meter from the fjord/sealevel. The other cabin is 40 square feet, also in a modern style, a bit higher up, overlooking the fjord. The place is stunningly beautiful, away from the hussle and stress. 3 km away from the mainroad, we and the guests feel secluded in a nice way. The guests say they feel a certain calmness the minute they arrive. You get really close to the nature, still living comfortably. The squirrels and the birds visit the terrace to pick up some nuts or seeds.

    This year we would like to be able to take a break, go away for a day or two. The previous years this hasn`t been easy. You never know if there will be guests or not, and it is not possible to plan anything. So we need some extra hosts. We have a high score from our guests, so we will teach you how to be the best host.

    With only two cabins we don`t really have enough work as a commercial host, to fill a whole weeks work. So we have spoken to our neighbur, an artist /taxi driver/ Gallery owner :-) Helping out there would mean some more gardening, some cleaning and maybe serve at one of the art exebitions/conserts. (Yes there is a gallery here in this secluded place :-)

    So what we need help with, is to clean the two cabins and welcome the guests, tell them practical things and tell a litle bit about what to do in this area. Most people want to go hiking on daytrips. There is plenty of mountains with a stunning fjordview from the top, in the area. Google Hardanger and hiking!
    The caibins are small, so the cleaning part is usually done in 45 minutes for the small one, and 1 hour for the big one in the beginning. With experience probably less. We have a dog and a cat. They are both very loving and loved familymembers. If we go away for a day or two, we may need your help to take care of them. Feeding them and go for a walk or two a day. We don`t have a big garden, but some help with the watering of the plants would be nice. We have to make sure we have enough wood for the winter, so we will be chopping up some for the next winter. Would be great to have some help with this. We also need to put up a fence, protecting the fruit trees from the deers. Would be great to have help by a handy person. There will pfcourse be time to Explore and Enjoy the area.

    You will have your own room in a litle house, a few steps away from the gallery. There is a bathroom in the next building and a kitchen in the gallery that you can use. We will be sharing some meals in our house, but you can also make your own food at the kitchen in the gallery. There is also a washing machine available for you.

    We will make sure you will have enough time to go hiking yourself. Maybe we can go together on some of them. This area is famous for the apple blossom and the postcard perfect litle places along the fjord. There is a glacier near by and a summer skiscenter on top of it. We have 3 sit on top kayaks, very easy to paddle, even on rough sea. Those are primarily for the guests but absolutely possible to use in your spare time. You must have a drivers liscens, because the public transportation is limited.
