Hallvar and the house are fantastic. Three of us stayed in this huge house for 5 nights while touring Bergen and fjords. The house is super clean and well appointed for cooking for when you pick up some fresh seafood from the fish market. Also, an adequate grocery is very close. The house has plenty of space, we were on a 3 week holiday so it was nice to have room to spread out and get some much needed space after being in hotels and traveling. The bathrooms are comfortable and the main has heated floors!! There is adequate laundry space also. Plus, a drier which was great. The property and lake are beautiful and safe. It's a long carry but we even took the canoe out for an evening paddle. Can't say enough about Hallvar, either. He is a super responsive host and respected our privacy at the house too. He had good recommendations for fjord tours and a excellent hike. So much appreciated. We had a rental car; the house is a little far from city center but it was really quiet and restful after nature filled days. I think there is public transportation very close. Absolutely recommend this house.

Hallvar's house is the ideal vacation getaway place if this is what tou are looking for. It is right above the park and lake area view a scenic view of the lakes and the mountain. Amazing thing is the house is close to everything, supermarket only a few steps away and city center about 10 minutes drive. The house is equipped with everything you'll and indeed it is the place where Hallvar lived a couple years ago. He even waited us and showed us in the house and the surroundings of natural wonders. Would recommend to everyone.

Beautiful home with a living roof, hot tub, 2 lakes across the very quiet road in front of the house and lots of beds. Hallvar was very attentive to a minor issue and cleared it up in no time and even gave us a bottle of wine as a thank you. The lakes are beautiful and warm enough to swim in. He has a canoe and a fishing pole for guests to use which we did. There are lovely forests with lots of trails right out the front door. Very peaceful and fairly close to Begen. If you have mobility issues note there are a lot of stairs but this place is worth it! Hallvar was a terrific host!
