A modern, warm and comfortable cabin - or summer house if you like. Close to Oslo (40 min car), and the village of Drøbak (15 min car/boat), yet quiet and undisturbed. Perfect as a base for exploring Southern Norway, or just relax. Sunny days means sunbathing, swimming, boating, kayaking and time in the hammock. Overcast days offer hiking, hot tub, and time in front of the fire place. The lightness and harmony of and view from the cabin makes you in any circumstance relax. The quiet and comfortable beds makes you sleep like a baby.
90 square meter, three bedroom cabin with. Expore islands and the cost by boat (for rent, see below).
Dishwasher, micro, laundry machine, stove with gas top and electrical oven, fully equipped kitchen, TV, fireplace, hot showers, WC, Wifi and full heating (that we never use during summer).
The master bedroom has the full view of the Hallangen fjord (adjoining the Oslo fjord), as do the kitchen, dining room and living-room with the fire place. All bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows/doors and blindings. Heated floors in bathroom, entrance and along windows facing the views to the south (although you will not need them during summer:).
Extra shower (also) with hot water outside, in connection with the hot tub, that is placed about 15 m from the cabin, also facing the view, but pulled back a bit. The hot tub is heated with firewood (of which we have lot). Nothing beats sitting there at night with a cold beer listening to the fire and the quiet, looking at the sky that never becomes completely dark during summer. Then retire to the outdoor room facing the views, with a comfortable coach and radiant heater (in the ceiling) if chilli.

Общение с гостями
We will place the key at the cabin, with a neighbour, or you can pick it up at our primary home in Oslo (if we are at home:). All aspects of the cabin that you need to use, should be described in a manual, and perhaps videos. If you need explanations, or there is a problem, we’ll be only a phone call away.
At the cabin, you will also find information on nearby shops and attractions, and local maps.
Otherwise, we’ll leave you to yourself.
Другие важные подробности
TV is satelite based. Even if not made for wheel chairs, access should be quite easy.
We do have a cat (Ragdoll) that stays at the cabin from time to time. Supposedly, a race that is good for people with allergies.
Please no smoking inside.
The WIFI is G4 based, and therefore with a fixed amount of data per month. That means you need to be careful with streaming films, videos etc. Music should be ok. Given this, the limit per 24 hrs is 3 GB, on average over your stay. Use in excess of the limit will be charged. Sorry about that, but such is cabin life. Having said that, we have a small collection of films on DVD/Blue Ray, for those rainy days, and satalite TV.
But, most important of all, do feel like home, and take care like your home, and we´ll all be happy.

We are a family of five. Three girls of ages 10 (Sofie), 14 (Anine) and 16 (Henriette). Their mother Marianne (46) is a head of marketing at an auction house in Oslo. Their father Kristian (47) is a lawyer.
The girls like swimming, and Marianne sunbathing. Kristian enjoys a good book in the shade. We all like outdoors activities (kayaking, sailing, snorkling, cycling boating) and good dining.
To me ultimate quality of life is waking up quite early (without an alarm), kayaking out to the Oslo fjord with Marianne and around the fortress island of Oscarsborg, and finish with a quick morning swim. Then shower, and have breakfast with the kids. Later in the day, relax in the hammock with a book, and perhaps an ice-cold beer, looking out the fjord and dozing off now and then.
We also enjoy shopping in the old fishing village of Drøbak for produce that we can prepare at the cabin, and enjoy with or without friends on the terrace overlooking the fjord. My specialties are barbeque, Indian (still a learner though!) and bread baking. My wife Marianne is a sweet tongue, and a big cake and desert person.
As a type, I am more than a bit structured. Energy and spirits high. A good laugh makes me feel good to the bone, so I try to have one as often as I can. I am quite well traveled, open to new people and cultures, and look forward to meeting you.
Marianne (and Anine!) are more than a bit tidy. Even though it sometimes drives me crazy that thing I was using, suddenly has been removed and put in its place, I too like order and cleanliness.
We all enjoy traveling. Our grandest tours together so far have been to Thailand and Florida, USA. As individual travelers or as a couple, Marianne and I have seen much of South East Asia, from India and eastwards, much of South Amerika and parts of Africa, apart from Europe and USA. We hope Airbnb will enable us to bring the kids with us on new adventures.
My motto is: We live only once, so let’s make the most of it, both in experiences and harmonious relationships.
