We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from fishing in the fjord, to exploring the local mountains and touring some of Norway's most spectacular scenery, with a comfortable and spacious home to come back to every evening. Highly recommended.
Still feel relaxed after our wonderful holiday experience in Norway. Martinus and Astrid were the perfect hosts, providing us with help, advice and wonderful amenities to make our stay great. Martinus even went as far as to organise a trip to see a local farm for my husband who is a farmer. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing, horse riding and seeing the local area and spent most of our 8 days at the house. A wonderful time was had by the whole family and I would highly recommend this rental.
We enjoyed a wonderful fortnight in Eldhuset Lovikneset. The house is beautifully finished and well equipped. It is just by the fjord with stunning views of the water and mountains. We were able to use the four kayaks, bikes, fishing equipment, rowing boat and motor boat and did so most days. We also swam in the fjord and undertook several local walks. The house is well placed for visiting Molde, Kristiansund, Alesund, Geirangerfjord and Trollstigen. There are a number of supermarkets and other shops within a 10 minute drive. Martinus and Astrid were both extremely welcoming and helpful, on hand to offer information if needed but giving us space too. Altogether this is one of the best houses we have been to in Norway. We would very much recommend it.
We have just had a really wonderful 3 night stay, and are so thankful to Martinus and Astrid for being such amazing hosts, from showing us where to find cloudberries (the highlight of our trip to Norway) to setting up the most amazing outdoor cooking fire on our last evening. We caught mackerel for supper, kayaked, and some of us even had a swim! Really wonderful place and I wish we could have stayed longer. We would love to return one day.
It is a brand new cottage, spacious and clean with a gorgeous view. The owner is very nice and helpful.
We had an amazing week here. Martinus and Astrid provided us with everything you could possibly dream you'd need. We had bikes,kayaks,motor boat rowing boat,barbeques,fishing equipment and even wellies in the right sizes!! Beautiful new kitchen and seperate laundry facilities. Amazing wooden structure that kept warm and cozy with underfloor heating.
We visited Trollstiggen and the Atlantic road, we went fishing on the fjord(and caught mackerel,cod and got laughed at by the salmon). Martinus wrote some sets of directions for mountain walks especially for us which gave us accesss to places we would never have visited otherwise, and made it so that we could watch the olympics by ordering extra t.v channels. The local shop is well stocked and we also found the supermarkets in Vestnes to be useful but if you want wine or spirits stock up in the dutyfree on your way through the airport.
Two teenage boys can be hard to drag away from computers but they spent this week outside kayaking,walking and cycling around the fjord. Our youngest-who had recently come back from a trek in the himalayas-found the walking interesting and challenging.
We all enjoyed using the spa bath after our long walks if we had got a little chilled
Martinus and Astrid were lovely hosts and we would certainly return. One slight problem we encountered was with the space in the upper level bedroom as there is very little headroom and our boys are both well over 6 feet so couldnt easily access the beds but we managed well enough as everything else was perfect
