“Lovely cabin in a nice situation but slightly under-equipped”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

The cabin in located in the harbour in Tind, near the end of the E10 and within walking distance of both Å and Sørvågen. The location is very handy for going out in the evening (I can recommend the Maren Anna in Sørvågen), given Norway's zero-tolerance approach to alcohol and driving, not to mention for the many great walks to be done from Sørvågen.

The cabin itself is attractive and comfortable with some entertaining touches, and has a good set of appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and two-ring hob). The bedroom has a comfortable bed and both curtains and blinds (essential in 24-hour daylight!).

The one let-down is a very limited set of kitchen equipment - we were constantly washing cutlery, there was no kettle and we had to be a little creative with cooking. This is unfortunate, given the expense of eating out in Norway.

The owners are very good at responding to communications promptly and helpfully (in - to the English-speaking - embarrassingly excellent English), and the lady who looks after the cabin day to day is also a cheerful and helpful soul.

Thank you for your nice feedback, and we are really happy you enjoyed your stay in our cabin. Also, thank you for the advice on the kitchen equipment. We will make sure that we will add sufficient and additional cutlery, pots etc. very soon, so one can fill the dish washer before running it.

“A perfect cabin in a perfect place”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Visiting Lofoten was for a long-time just an aspiration for us, and we have found Tind as a perfect base for making it real: it's a calmer place than Reine or Å, and conveniently located for walking, trekking in the mountains, or as a base for travelling by car around Moskenessoya and Flakstadoya.

Norway is terribly expensive, but we think that this cabin offers good value: it's extremely well-equipped, and the owner, Gunnar, has been really patient and helpful with all our questions. We have felt there so at ease as at our own home. Thanks a lot, and we hope coming back again!

Dear Guests. Thank you for your review, and thank you for coming to visit our place in Lofoten. We are very pleased that you had such a memorable experience, and hope one day you will return to Tind. I will try to answer some of your points where we can improve here.

Window screens and mosquitoes: The time you visited was in the period when the weather was exceptionally hot. According to the local newspapers, it was the best spring and beginning of summer in 30 years. We have not received any previous concerns with mosquitoes or bed linen being too hot, but we agree that when it was hot like that, the quilts are too warm. We will see if we can arrange a sheet that fits the double bed, and that is a little less warm, but unfortunately, it is rather the exception that our guest has any problems sleeping given the heat. I would say that mosquitoes are not generally a big concern in our area given the location far into the sea.

The sun: We agree 100% that we also would have liked an evening direct sun. In june and july, the property has potential sun from around 0330 hrs until 1800 hrs. As you mentioned, you can see the reflection of the sun further out into the sea, and also you can walk about 10 minutes to sit directly in the evening sun. Unfortunately, there is no direct viewing of the midnight sun from most places in Moskenes, unless you go to Bunesstranda or one of the peaks around. However, for those that want to come visit in November or February, we can offer a spectacular view of the sun in front of the rorbu around 0900-1000 hrs in the morning, where you have sort of a reversed midnight sun effect when the sun just barely rises above the sea just in front of you, before it sets in the sea again. Quite a spectacular sight, with great light, and snow-capped mountains behind.

Thank you again for coming, and for taking the time to give us feedback.

“Confortable Traditonal Robru in a Great location”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

One of the greater moment of our Norway trip.

The Rubru has nice bedromms and a spacious living room with nice genuine old bed fisherman wood bed has decoration. The weather was great so we spent some time on the wood deck with the sun and a view on the bay and behind us the Tindstinden ( first thing we did was to go walk on, breathtaking scenary). It was a comfortable quiet place and we sleeped well .

Nice thing, brochures and a detailed map of south Lofoten was available in the Robru. In his first email the owners gaved us some tips about the walks around / place to visit. We didn't use our car for the south of the island ( great location between Å , and Sorvagen). There is track in Sorvagen to trail to Munken (a must see) or Hermannsdalstinden. After a good cinnamon pastry in Å we did go around the Agvatnet .

We should have shorten our stay in big cities (Oslo, Bergen) to have more time to stay in this lovely place
