This was the second time I have stayed at the Beach House. Once again, breathtaking location, with fantastic views of the fjord. Bjorn was great with communication once again, checking in with local tips daily. We had a fantastic stay and recommend this place as a unique place to stay.

The beach house is incredible, my kids and I loved it and the situation is perfect: into nature but close enough to tourists attractions such as Oslo.. Bjørn is a very attentive host!

We travelled from India early this month, visiting family in Copenhagen. We decided to see another country close by & hence planned a short trip to Oslo, Norway. Air BnB not being one of the first options for us, we were exploring many places to stay. As luck would have it, we chanced upon this beautiful beach house. What we learnt that Bjorn(house owner) is rated as a Super Host, and that the house was occupied most of days. Not sure of the availability , we took a chance and sent him a note. Of-course we had a lot of questions about the stay,city and the things to do. Being our first Air Bnb booking, there were a lot more queries:-). Instantly a very personalized reply came from Bjorn, settling all our concerns This made us decide in minutes that we would like to explore our first ever Air Bnb stay at the beautiful suburbs of Oslo. From the first communication, Bjorn made it a point to stay connected and showered us with a lot of warmth and help. We were made to feel very welcome in every conversation we had with him. His house is absolutely stunning, each corner very aesthetically done up. Loved the vibe there!! Though the weather packed up and it rained all four days, it still was not a deterrent for us. The house amenities and the surrounding forest gave us the perfect relaxed holiday, we really needed. We followed all recommendations shared by Bjorn, on places to visit and dine. That made our experience wholesome. What better could we ask? Thanks Bjorn, for being so loving and generous, you undoubtedly are a “Super-Host". This house is a must do get-away for anyone travelling that side. You have raised the bar for our future Air Bnb stays Cheers From all of us

I'm sorry to say theat watch out for the small print and all the add on costs. The place is great but some additional costs are petty whilst others are way out of perspective with similar places and took away from our enjoyment.

Response from Bjørn Arezes:
I am sorry to hear that some extra costs took away from your enjoyment, Andrew. All extra costs (bed clothing / towels, electricity, Nespresso coffee, row / fishing boat, speed boat, windsurfing, Saab cabriolet) are clearly described twice in the Airbnb advert, under Overview and under Other things to note. Still we gave you electricity and Nespresso coffee for free, and we gave you 50% discount on the bed clothing and towels. Some guests are never satisfied...

I am a 50 year old man living with my portuguese wife and four children in Oslo. 30 minutes from the Oslo city center we have constructed a spectacular beach house for our family. But – since we love to travel, we have decided to rent out the house on a weekly and 3-days basis. Since my wife is portuguese we have been travelling a lot in Portugal. But – we have also had beautiful vacations in Sweden, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Thailand, Indonesia, USA and Central + South America. And we would like to discover other parts of the world.

We have been hosts for more than 10 years now – first for a beach house at Ljan in Oslo and now for the brand new beach house 30 minutes from the oslo city center. Since we live close to the beach house, we can always offer assistance when something is missing or something happens. Our guest appreciate this extra service. I speak norwegian, swedish, danish, english, german, spanish and portuguese – so communication with our guest is not a problem.

As guests around the world most people perceive us as a harmonious family that love to meet new cultures and new people.
