“Beautiful, clean and cosy - could not ask for more.”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a guest house we wanted to pick up and take home.
After receiving a warm welcome, we got to the house and it took our breath away. A beautiful, traditional wooden cottage on Ekkeroy island, a stones throw from the sea and looking out onto a colony of 20,000 kittiwakes.
The house was fully equipped and very cosy and comfortable. It truly was a home from home.
We can't wait to go back!

“You will never forget a stay at Ekkerøya. Unique and fantastic”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

An authentic and beautiful house on Ekkerøy - with everything you need to have a comfortable holiday. A nice and serviceminded host. The perfect place to explore the Varanger peninsula, or for simply being on Ekkerøy in harmony with nature. Amazing.

“Excellent - ecological ethos, location and facilities. Recommended.”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I strongly recommend the self-catering accommodation here: classy yet homely, with wonderful views over the fjord to the north and south. The owners' ethos is strongly environmental, the walls are coverd in local history and the shelves replete with visitor information.

“cosy house with fantastic views”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This cosy little house is located on a causeway to Ekkeroy village and boasts a view of both beaches from opposite sides of the house. Three of the beds are in the loft up a steep set of stairs but the kids will love it. We called it hobbiton. The small kitchen contains everything you need for your stay and the bathroom is spacious, well appointed and has under floor heating which was fab. The beds were very comfortable and linen was provided for a reasonable fee. The nearby town of Vadso is only 15 minutes away. The house is well situated to explore the birdwatching sites at Ekkeroy cliffs and Vardo harbour where you can get a boat to the bird island at Hornoya. There is also a fab sauna on site.

“Perfect living in a well equipped beautiful house”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The house is beautifully situated with the sea in two directions. The equipment i perfect,: good beds and good kitchen. The house has an exiting history which was told by the renter and it gave us a good atmoshere. It's close to walk to the fantastic birdcliffs. We were five travel companions (birdwatchers) that stayed overnight in the house and we all recommend the house to new visitors.
