  • Just as described. Perfect location, close to the ferry. Very convenient. Small kitchen set-up as mentioned in the description. You have to pay for the linen, but it's very clean.

  • We had 3 good nights at Mariann's. Mariann is very welcoming, very responsive and kind. The accommodation is perfect as a passage room for 1 to 3 nights. It is located in the middle of all but far from all at once. The public areas are old but clean! The only drawback is that the building is poorly isolated phonetically. Stay from August 20th to 23rd, 2019.

    Steve2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had been on the go hiking/camping and needed a place to chill out for a couple days. Mariann's place was the most affordable we could find and had everything we needed. Outside there is a pool, a nice lawn (where I hooped), a volleyball net we used, and amazing views of the fjord! Our room had a sink, a counter with a hot plate, a fridge, and all of the kitchenware we needed, an electric kettle, and a fridge. There was an inside table and one outside too. We had a great stay and recommend Mariann's place!

  • Mariann’s place was clean and the kitchenette was great! It had everything you need to make a simple meal. The place was very close to the ferry. Very convenient if you want to catch the ferry to go the the other side of the fjord with or without a car. We really enjoyed our stay at Mariann’s place.

  • This place is what is says, and what you see on the photos. Not a luxurious hotel, but more than enough to stay for a few days, and for this price it is more than you can expect! It has a perfect location, we loved the pool!

  • Great view, location and clean! We was a group and we all have enjoyed staying in this amazing house. I strongly recommend it.

    Fahad2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant views. Lots of space. Clean and bright. There is some additional work being done in the house (extra bedroom, extra bath, some new furniture etc.) which made it feel like a place is some transition somewhat. Hopefully will be wrapped up and sorted out soon so it feels more homely and consistent

    Satyajeet2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and you can’t beat the view.

    Maria2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Really amazing house on the fiord!

    Dmitry2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great house with a direct view on the Sognefjord. The terrasse is amazing and we had wonderful evenings just looking at the fjord and sunset! The house is very nice and well decorated (we only used the upper floor with 2 bedrooms, another apartment exists on the lower floor). Surroundings are awesome : we loved our Nature trail at Balestrand and cruise on the beautiful Naerojfjord! A must do

    Stéphanie2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This house was very clean, very new, and in an excellent location. The views from the living room and the outdoor spaces are simply amazing. We stayed for 3 nights, and I wish we had been able to stay longer. We rented a boat for 2 days and explored the fjords by water, which was an incredible experience. I had high expectations, and I was still blown away by the never-ending stunning scenery. This house was a great place to come home to after a day out and about exploring.

    Adam2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with an absolutely stunning panoramic view of the fjord. The terraces were perfect for enjoying sunsets and long summer evenings. The house was comfortable for a group of 8. The area is great for day excursions. Highlights were hiking trips to Raudmelen (accessible by car ferry from Vangsnes) and the Feios area. There were a lot of other day trips we wanted to do, but we had just 2 days unfortunately. Hopefully we will be back, and if so we would definitely consider staying in this house again.

    Mike2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect and as described. Carl was very helpful and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you

    Our spacious and comfortable house is located in the heart of the world famous Sognefjord, on the west coast of Norway, in a beautiful little village surrounded by stunning scenery with views to the icy blue fjord, mountains and northern Europes largest glacier; Jostedalsbreen. The property has a fantastic view overlooking the fjord, and is surrounded by a beautiful garden and outdoor areas in a quiet neighborhood. Great hikes and skiing in close proximity with stunning nature all year long.

Terrace is equipped with gas grill, sun beds and a nice dining area where you can enjoy your meals in summer, while taking in the great views of the fjord and mountains.

    Vangsnes er en liten bygd ved den vakre Sognefjorden. Stedet har ca 500 fastboende, og er en del av Vik Kommune (10 min). Her er det stille og naturskjønt med gode muligheter for å oppleve fjord og fjell. Du kan òg ta dagsturer til Voss, Bergen, Fjærland, Førde, Sogndal, Flåm og Gudvangen Er du glad i naturen, eller liker å få mosjon er det mange flotte fjellturer i området. Du kan og ta med deg fiskestangen og dra ned til fjorden (4-5 min å kjøre). Er du gjest om sommeren, bør du nyte stedets lokale bringebær og jordbær. Fantastisk gode! Det er en liten butikk på Vangsnes der du får det meste. I kommunesenteret Vik, er det post. politi, lege, supermarked, kafeer og andre butikker, samt BLIX hotell med pub, restaurant og gode konferanse muligheter. Fra Vangsnes er det bare en kort kjøre tur (20 min) til skisenteret i VIk, der det ligger en flott skiskytter stadion. Fortsetter du videre på veien til Voss, kommer du til flotte Vikafjellet, der man vanligvis går på ski til langt ut i juni i oppkjørte langrenns spor. Rett over fjorden ligger vakre Balestrand og Kviknes Hotell med all sin sjarm og histore. Vangsnes er og et godt utgangspunkt for å ta turen "Norway in a nutshell".
  • A wonderful place, with a fantastic, wider than wide view on the spectacular Sognefjord, 1100 meter deep in front of the house, with beautiful mountains around it and spots of eternal snow. It provides the very scarce luxury of absolute silence and full disconnect from regular work- and family life routines. The impact of the nature around is immense. The house and garage have a very nice design, and are made entirely out of wood. The rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable , the kitchen is very nice and very completely equiped. The living room is very nice to stay in, with the view as well as large screen tv with full connectivity to Netflix and so on. The garden is also very beautiful, with a nice design and many beautiful plants and flowers. And a very large wooden deck, with grill and the full view on the fjord. In terms of activities, options are hiking, boating, site seeing making use of the ferries to Hella and Balestrand and home cooking.

  • Stylish house with glorious views of the fjord. Blessed by glorious weather!

    Will2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The best home rental ever. A beautiful home in a beautiful location. So many extra touches. We were two couples touring Norway. This spot was a great place to wind down after a 3 week tour. We took a day off of sight seeing just to enjoy the house and garden.

    Michael2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • It is almost impossible to describe the beauty of this place, both the natural beauty of the mountains and fjords as well as the created beauty of the home, barn, and June’s amazing flower gardens. We had a fantastic time having a little reunion with our adult children. Plenty of room to spread out, relax, and enjoy the view.

    Rhonda2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place to stay, very well organized house , super clean. Everything is excellent.

    Dr Mohammad2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • This house is beautifully situated with views of the Sognefjord on three sides. It is roomy and spacious, while remaining modest. The kitchen is large and well equipped, and we were able to cook all our meals there and enjoy them with a view of the fjord. If you want beer or wine that’s stronger than 4.7%, be aware that the nearest wine store is only open Thursday through Saturday, so you may want to pick some up in Bergen or elsewhere on your way. June is the best kind of AirBnB host: welcoming, helpful, generous, a delight to talk to, but not in your hair.

    Ian2018-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing, well equipped, very clean, cozy with a really nice view You'll find everything you need in the kitchen (appliances and other stuffs) Two bathrooms one in the main floor and the other in the upper floor. You will have unforgettable experience in this quiet house. The village Vangsnes is a bit far with a difficult road, as there is no restaurants or cafes. You have to go to Vik about 10 minutes from Vangsnes, you will find limited options (Cafes and restaurants) There is one small market for groceries with limited varieties. You can visit Hella and Balestrand by ferry.

    Tenk deg noen dager der du kan koble fra hverdagen og i stedet koble på naturen. Skjerpe sansene, våkne opp til lyden av fuglesang og praktfull utsikt over Sognefjorden. Bare ro, stillhet, sus over furukronene og fyr i vedovnen. Seldalen er en gammel vårstøl med en tradisjonell, enkel vestnorsk stølshytte. Ikke regn med sol hver dag -natur er vær, og du må tilpasse deg den! Gå turer fra fjord til fjell, nyt det vertikale landskapet og avslutt dagen med et forfriskende bad i Huldrekulpen.
    Hytta på Seldalen er enkel og består av to rom: skåt og stue. I skåtet er det kjøkken med kokemulighet, kjøkkenbord og vaskestell. I stua er det en lenestol, salongbord, to gode enkeltsenger og to madrasser på hemsen. Fasiliteter: Vann; javisst, bare ikke innlagt. Strøm; jada, bare ikke for mye. 12V solcelleanlegg. Mulighet for å lade mobil med usb. Internett; 4G mobilnett. Oppvarming; vedovn i stua. Kjøkken; to gassbluss, balje til oppvask, servise, enkelt kjøkkenutstyr, kjøkkenbord og to krakker. Bålpanne med grillrist ute. Toalett; klassisk utedo med god fallhøyde og bra utsikt. Bad; vaskestell, Huldrekulpen og dusjpose som varmes i solen. Rengjøring; ladbar støvsuger, engangskluter og vaskebøtte. Fiskemuligheter; i Sognefjorden og i fjellvann. Fiskekort kjøpes hos utleier. Turmuligheter; uendelige! Alternative dagsturer og aktiviteter i nærområdet beskrevet.
    Nabolaget ditt er naturen. Det kan hende at noen turgåere passerer Seldalen, men gårdstunet er nærmeste "nabo". Det tar ca 30 minutter å gå dit. Nærmeste butikk og kafè er i Vik, 6 km fra gården.
  • We had a wonderful time staying in such a beautiful and cosy cabin. We hiked up to a nearby peak (there is a map in the cabin) And then returned and had a fire to warm us back up. It is a bit of a hike up to the cabin from where we left the car but we were prepared with hiking boots and rucksacks. It was a lot of fun, I would highly recommend it!

    Melissa2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cabin up in the woods with a view on the fjords down, the cabin is beautifully furnished and the emplacement is definitely special. It's worth noting that you have a 20mins hike to reach the cabin, a price well worth it for the immersion deep into nature.

    Alexandre2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cabin in the most beautiful location. So cozy and peaceful. We really loved our stay here. It is a decent ~25 minute hike up to the cabin and we were glad we had our backpacks and hiking boots. We wish we had brought food up on our first trip so we could stay near the cabin the whole time!

    Flo2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a jewel! Much better than we expected. Really cosy and pristine, excellently organized, yet immersed in the most beautiful nature with a view of the fjord. Lovely hikes just from the doorstep. Kjersti and her partner are wonderful hosts: thoughtful, helpful and full of good advice on ways to explore the area. We wish we could have stayed longer, and we will definitely come back.

  • A very nicely appointed house with full amenities and the view of the fjord. Very quiet, and you can pick up some groceries just few kilometers away. The only regret was that we only stayed for one night. I highly recommend it!

  • Nice, spaciuos, well equipped place located at Leikanger. Good price/quality ratio. Tommy is a great host - very helpfull, friendly and communicative. 5 stars.

  • Our stay at Tommy's apartment was brief but we were especially impressed by the huge size of the place and beautiful views. The place was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable and the shower great. Despite being so large it felt warm and cosy. Would have liked to have more time to chill out on that lakeside deck! We got ourselves in a muddle when arriving in darkness, but Tommy was very quick to help us out. Many thanks! Martin and Debbie.

  • Beautiful view! Big apartment ! Pleasant place to spend time

    Adeline2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and big house. Near the road, but it was not a problem for us. Cought few fish with spinning in the Fjord across the road. I would say nothing interesting around, but it's very good to stay overnight.

    Evhenii2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tommy's accomodation is great and great for anglers due to its proximity to the lake. The view of the fjord is really unique. Overall it is really great!

"Balholm" they have and a nice restaurant that is worth visiting. Around the whole of Balestrand we have great marked hiking trails for those who want to stroll a little walk in the woods, and those who want to go up to the tops. At the forest we have a football field and sand volleyball court and a climbing park for children.
  • I was received on the pier, the house beautiful and very well attended. Too much for one person. The super quiet and very beautiful place. Dreamlike

    Marta2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was absolutely super for us 3 adults who used it for 2 days. Big, tidy and had everything we needed. In particular, we would point out that it was very clean and nice everywhere. We had nothing to fault on our stay. Very good standard!

    Sigbjørn2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We love Balestrand and have been here many times. Great to be able to rent a place bang in the middle of it! The flat is fully fitted and very new. Siv is a attentive and kind host. Thank you.

    Vanja2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

    Rebecka2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t be nicer. Ridiculously large for just the two of us but another host had plumbing issues and we had to find a new place. Siv was able to accommodate us. Best location in Balestrand I’m sure. Huge, beautiful balcony with stunning views. Super clean unit in perfect condition. Kitchen well appointed. One of the nicest Air B&Bs we’ve stayed in. Good communication. Perfect stay.

    Michael2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was sparkling clean, spacious and modern. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Balestrand. Loved it!

    Scott2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • A huge space and perfectly situated by the harbour and a number of grocery stores (which we took advantage of as many of the stores had closed for the season when we got there). FYI, if you come after August a lot of things are going to be closed.

    Joseph2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

    Venecia2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Really fantastic location, very comfortable and well equipped house. A waterside bench on the other side of the road overlooking the fjord is wonderful. Having no car, I was afraid of being stuck. But there is a good bus service that goes to the city center. I highly recommend.

    Colette2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Iwona's husband picked us up and dropped us off at the Balestrand port, very nice of them to give us a ride as the taxi's were quite expensive and it would have been about a 30 min walk with our bags. The view at their AirBnB is absolutely beautiful. We walked along the fjord and back to Balestrand. Overall, awesome location and experience!

    Ben2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

    Tiziano2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very pleasant stay in Balestrand. We made the scenic routes 13 and 55. The walk up to the foot of the Nigarsbreen glacier will remain a very good memory. The house of Iwona is very well placed with a view of the sognfjord. She is well equipped and very clean.

    Florence2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming place with thoughtful furnishings and decoration. The location is beautiful and you have the entire place to yourself. We highly recommend this unit but with advice that the only bathroom is up a circular staircase. It is a very nice bathroom (with a heated floor!) but may be difficult to access if you have mobility limitations.

    Ground floor apartment right in the centre of Balestrand. It´s quite old fashioned, but the location is great. It's in walking distance to grocery stores, aquarium, hotels, art galleries etc. There is a double bed, 180 cm, in the bedroom. In the living room there´s a sofabed than easily can be turned into a 120 cm bed. We also have a mattress to place on the floor if you want to be four in the apartment. The kitchen is small, but it has everything you need.
    This place is perfect for a family with children. We have equipment for babies and small children. Also strollers if needed.
    Balestrand is special in the way it forms a cosy village with a well defined centre, unlike most small places in Norway, where the houses and facilities are more spread out. From the house you can get all that you could wish for literally within walking distance from the house: Cafés, museums, grocery stores, design stores, bars, restaurants, post office, aquarium, bike/boat/canoe/kayak rental, guided fishing trips to mention but a few. Other than that, Balestrand is known for wonderful light and breathtaking nature. This area of the Sognefjord has welcomed tourists since the early 1800s. English lords and the German Emperor Wilhelm II also spent a lot of time in Balestrand and the Sognefjord area during about a hundred years ago. These visitors left their mark on the many villas in Balestrand, which show traces of both English and German wooden house architecture, most notably perhaps the use of dragon heads and beam ends on the facade. The English Church also is very special. This is also a wooden building, has many windows to the fjord, and a petite charm. Its interior was actually also the model for the crowning scene in the blockbuster film Frost. Balestrand is known as the art village by the Sognefjord, Balestrand has inspired artists from all over the world. The historic Kviknes Hotel in Balestrand houses a large collection of paintings by painters that have visited the area and stayed at the hotel. There are also several galleries and exhibitions that are open throughout the summer months. The wonderful light and breathtaking nature still inspire artists from all over the world. If you spend the night in Balestrand, you can also take a trip to Fjærland and visit The Glacier Muesum, go kayaking on the fjord, or go for a guided tour across the glacier Jostedalsbreen. In the winter time you can drive to the mountain Saurdalen, with great cross-country skiing. In this snow-proof area approximately 600 m.o.h. there are usually good skiing conditions from December to April. There are 10 km of groomed trails in open mountain forests, with excellent starting points for hikes to the high mountains. There's a children's drawstring with a 200 meters draft length, trays with varying degrees of difficulty and floodlights.
  • Very conveniently located. Large apartment with everything you need. Minutes from the ferry dock. Lovely neighborhood.

    Carol2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bente’s place was great. It’s a 2 minute walk from where the main Norled Express Boat docks, and is centrally located within Balestrand. Check in was easy to do myself with a photo-based guide. Everything is exactly as described/photographed. I would definitely come here again.

    Stephen2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Located just 50 m from the quay and all the amenities . Spacious, comfortable large bed, off street parking and a small deck that perfectly catches the afternoon sun. We enjoyed our stay, Balestrand is a quiet little town.

    Jytte2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • iashe space is big, cozy, and in a great location. They had just about everything we could have needed and for the price it is a great deal. I will say that if you are heavily dependent on wifi, the wifi signal here is not very strong, but there are many buildings and cafes with wifi available that are close by. Balestrand was a beautiful place and this Air BnB added to its beauty and our enjoyment of the trip overall. I highly suggest staying here!

    Devan2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house right in the center of town. Extremely clean and well-maintained. The sheets were sparkling white (I would really like to know what detergent is being used :) ). The home even had a nice, big trampoline outside where the kids could play - the kids had a blast. The kitchen was well-stocked and was very tidy. We would love to go back soon!

  • If you're looking in this area, look no further. Stay here! This is one of the coolest places I've ever stayed, and Hans was a great host. I could not recommend this place enough. We came with no plans other than to look for hikes nearby. We found 2 amazing hikes from magazines left for us in the living room, and the 3rd came from a suggestion from Hans. I wish we could have stayed longer. Hans is super responsive to messages, too.

    Dustin2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house right on the fjord. Great views and lots of outside seating areas to enjoy the views. We stayed in September and weathered a few storms, but Hans house provided a great place to keep cosy by the fire with an amazing look out onto the fjord keeping our eyes peeled for porpoises and seal’s. We cooked all of our own meals and the kitchen comes with everything you would need. Great little secluded hideout for relaxation and incredible views. Thank you Hans!

    Laura2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • A superb location on the fjord, with amazing views. Hans is a superbly helpful host, always very prompt with his responses. Great to be able to hire the house motor boat and canoes, along with use of the fishing rods. Amazing place to stay for the views and the location.

    Stephen2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Location is gorgeous, right on the fjord with the most fantastic views. House has everything you need and plenty of space for everyone. We stayed with our grown up children and the kayaks and canoes were popular. In my opinion you really need a car to stay as it's not easy to walk anywhere. You can get a passenger ferry from Leikanger to Flam but not too frequent so plan ahead. Hans was really helpful when I needed help with timetables etc. We really had a great time 😀, thank you Hans

    Donna2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

  • This house was just perfect for our 10 day stay, it is just so well located and really felt like home during our stay. The weather, which can be a bit diabolical in Norway, was perfect for our first 5 days which we spent hiking and touring around. We also did a Glacier walk at Jostedalsbreen which is only 1 1/2hr drive away and well worth doing. The second half of our stay the weather was not so kind, it was very windy and we had a lot of rain but we still made the most of the situation and really appreciated the perfect surroundings of the house at the end of each and every day. We would comeback and stay at Han's house in a heartbeat.

  • Just like the website plus a resident oystercatcher. What a treat! And we also loved the wonderful location right on the fjord. Every morning and evening we could watch the big cruises passing by thinking how fortunate we are to be in the wonderful house. The house is more than fully equipped for a cosy evening around the fireplace and for outdoor activities. The sunsets on the terrace are fantastic!!

    Kathrin2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place was everything we hoped for and more. It was so quiet and peaceful for a relaxing end to our trip. It is a great location for many nearby sites and hiking opportunities. Hans was a great host who responded to any questions in a timely manner

The home is just down the road from Balestrand which was nice if/when we needed to run to the grocery store or wanted to get a bite to eat in town. We loved the location! We highly recommend this place. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Norway!

  • Host picked us up at ferry pier to his apartment under heavy rain on our arrival that day. We are really appreciated his help as he is busy on the day. The apartment with an extremely nice view facing the sea that we can see the sunrise in the morning. There are no other guests during our visit, so we can use the full house that makes us really enjoy our stay with only our friends alone. There are 3 washrooms in the house, that makes us feel very convenient during the stay. All the pillow and towels are clean and tidy. The only thing need to pay attention is the apartment is a bit far away that our expected, it takes about few minutes drive, or about 25 mins walk to town center. However, there are some bicycles parked in the apartment which allows the guests to use them, this is an alternative transport to travel between town and apartment. There are car parking space at the apartment too. Overall the house is very nice and all of us likes the place much and also thanks for the host assistance during our stay !

Therefore it is quietly located and you can easily reach the beach by foot as well as the starting point for the hiking trails. The bedrooms are rather simple, big very clean and nice. And there is a big comfortable living area with a big porch. The kitchen is really well equiped! We wish we could have stayed longer!

    Benjamin2019-07-26T00:00:00Z

  • A cute little house in an amazing location. You can see the fjord from the living room, it's just about 200 meters from the house. The house is nicely decorated, very clean, and the owners were very kind and helpful. The village of Balestrand is probably one of the best places to start your fjord explorations, and some mind-blowing places are very near (including glaciers, waterfalls, the fjords, and amazing mountain areas). Highly recommended!

    Thorsten2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

The owners, Gunnar and Kari, could not have been more friendly, providing great recommendations of where to eat, swim and hike. Incredible value.

    Mia2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house, amazing location. If available, do not hesitate to book! Unforgettable views, peaceful and unique. THIS is why you are visiting Norway! Bring lots of warm, dry clothes. It rains a lot in Balestrand and there is no dryer, so you’ll want to be able to change clothes/shoes when soaked. Book now!!

  • Really nice guest house. everything well organized. There is even a special place for drying shoes and jackets. Beautiful view from the window. Highly recommended.

    Natalia2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay with fantastic hosts. Gard and Tuba are celebrities in balestrand yet so humble and kind. Gard took extra effort to drive us to the supermarket and spent time with at their restaurant ciderhuset. Tuba was concerned when she heard we were surprised about the location being further away than expected. Their house is a dream and at the end we were hoping we hadn't booked other places to extend our stay. Definitely a place i will reccomend to anyone and will probably come back with friends.

    Ayaz2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great clean place with an amazing view!

    Sanna2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • We have spent four nights in Tuba's house. The house is very nice and has a wonderfull view on the fjord. We would definitely stay there again. Tuba is very helpfull and available if there is any problem.

    Christian2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and two of my friends stayed in Tuba’s guesthouse in Balestrand for 5 nights during a trip around Norway. The stay was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip. Not only is Balestrand a beautiful location, but the guesthouse is located atop a hill providing panoramic views across the fjord. Tuba was a wonderful host, she picked us up from the ferry in her car and allowed us to extend our stay by one night without any fuss.

    Ultan2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our time at Tubas Guesthouse was just wonderful; We would have liked to stay longer if our route would have allowed it. The guesthouse is designed with great attention to detail - for example, we were already expecting a chalkboard with our names on our door. On the spacious living floor as well as on the terrace and the balconies there are several places to sit together comfortably - also some games were ready. The kitchen is generous - and here was thought of everything, even an "emergency food" closet :). There are three large bathrooms, so you should not get in the way even at full house. Everything is sparkling clean. Unforgettable, however, is the breathtaking view from the terrace over the fjord - simply beautiful!

    Jan-Markus2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this address: location, cleanliness and staff (Tuba or Alis cousin) are extremely kind.

    Ground floor apartment right in the centre of Balestrand. Small children friendly. We have cribs, children chairs, baby bottles etc. It's in walking distance to grocery stores, aquarium, hotels, art galleries etc. The bedroom has a double bed and a bunk bed. In the living room there´s a sofa bed that can be turned into a double bed. The kitchen is well equipped with dish washer. There's a big bathroom with washing machine. The living room, kitchen and bathroom has floor heating.
    This place is perfect for a family with children. We have equipment for babies and small children. Also strollers and car seats if needed. The top bed in the bunk bed is not suited for adults. The mattress is quite thin due to safety limits and the maximum weight is 80 kg.
    Balestrand is special in the way it forms a cosy village with a well defined centre, unlike most small places in Norway, where the houses and facilities are more spread out. From the house you can get all that you could wish for literally within walking distance from the house: Cafés, museums, grocery stores, design stores, bars, restaurants, post office, aquarium, bike/boat/canoe/kayak rental, guided fishing trips to mention but a few. Other than that, Balestrand is known for wonderful light and breathtaking nature. This area of the Sognefjord has welcomed tourists since the early 1800s. English lords and the German Emperor Wilhelm II also spent a lot of time in Balestrand and the Sognefjord area during about a hundred years ago. These visitors left their mark on the many villas in Balestrand, which show traces of both English and German wooden house architecture, most notably perhaps the use of dragon heads and beam ends on the facade. The English Church also is very special. This is also a wooden building, has many windows to the fjord, and a petite charm. Its interior was actually also the model for the crowning scene in the blockbuster film Frost. Balestrand is known as the art village by the Sognefjord, Balestrand has inspired artists from all over the world. The historic Kviknes Hotel in Balestrand houses a large collection of paintings by painters that have visited the area and stayed at the hotel. There are also several galleries and exhibitions that are open throughout the summer months. The wonderful light and breathtaking nature still inspire artists from all over the world. If you spend the night in Balestrand, you can also take a trip to Fjærland and visit The Glacier Muesum, go kayaking on the fjord, or go for a guided tour across the glacier Jostedalsbreen. In the winter time you can drive to the mountain Saurdalen, with great cross-country skiing. In this snow-proof area approximately 600 m.o.h. there are usually good skiing conditions from December to April. There are 10 km of groomed trails in open mountain forests, with excellent starting points for hikes to the high mountains. There's a children's drawstring with a 200 meters draft length, trays with varying degrees of difficulty and floodlights.
  • That it is very nice located and clean and nice there :)

    Synneva Iren2019-10-04T00:00:00Z

    Paulette2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Holiday resort and ideal location. Perfectly equipped apartment and supermarket within walking distance. A small regret about the impossibility of enjoying the garden with an outdoor table. The walks are many a particular mention for the loop by the Raudmelen which is a little sporty but very pleasant.

    Olivier2019-07-21T00:00:00Z

    Lisa2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Bente was a wonderful host for our stay in Balestrand. Her apartment is cozy and has all the necessities and, best of all, is located centrally to everything one would want to do while staying in Balestrand. Bente was attentive to our every need, including providing needed instructions on how to operate the washing machine and also changing out a light bulb immediately in the kitchen. And our son had such fun playing with Bente's lovely children outside while we finished unpacking and getting settled into the apartment. Thanks again for everything, Bente!

    Nana2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • It was a joy to stay in Bente Johann’s Balestrand apt. It was decorated so nicely and had all the thoughtful touches of a real home. We loved every minute of our stay.. We also fell in love with this charming town. The location was great and we were able to walk to everything. Some days we took the ferry and visit ed other towns. We bought fresh produce and cooked most of our meals at home. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of hot water. It was a lovely, quiet, relaxing vacation .

    Our house is an old villa located in a peaceful part of Balestrand and has a huge garden which offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the summer and the spectacular fjord view. It’s a great place to have a barbeque and enjoy the sun until late in the evening.
    This is our private holiday home where we spend all our holidays so the house is well equipped. It was originally built in 1905 and consists of four bedrooms, a kitchen, two living rooms, a bathroom and a toilet. The two living rooms and two of the bedrooms have been refurbished in recent years. It’s a perfect place for families with children, with plenty of space to play and run around in the fenced garden, which is located along a dead-end street with little traffic. In the garden there is possible to badminton, frisbee, bocca or other ball games. For the occasional rainy day there is plenty of board games, toys and books inside, and our children’s favorite is to play hide and seek. A few steps away is the famous "Ciderhuset", which has a nice restaurant and a shop where you could buy cider and juice, both of which are considered among the very best in Norway. A short walk (650 m) down the road is the local public beach, and Holmen, with a small aquarium, a museum of travel history, grocery stores, art galleries and restaurants, is 1 300 m away. The local cinema, Friberg kino is 900 m away. In the immediate vicinity, there are several excellent hiking opportunities nearby, and if in season you should try picking the wild blueberries in the woods. Within driving distance, you will find Høyangerbadet og Lustrabadet, Urnes stave church (UNESCO world heritage site), two Norwegian scenic routes (Gaularfjellet and Sognefjellet).
    Quite, residential area. Witin walking distance is the local beach, the Ciderhouse with a restaurant, and the famouse fjordline villas where the German Kaiser Wilhelm II arranged his garden parties.
  • Very nice house with à juge and lovely garden in a very nice fjord town. And wherever in the house, a wonderful view either on the ses, or on the moutains. We highly recommand it

    Balestrand, Norway

    Beautiful swiss villa right in the center of Balestrand. Two balconies with views of the fjord and mountains, two living rooms, two bathrooms and four bedrooms. One extra living room/bedroom connected to one of the bedrooms. There are ten beds and two cribs. 700 meters away there is a perfect sandy and children-friendly beach. Great hiking opportunities. Restaurants, grocery stores and cafés two minutes walk from house.
    My husband and I inherited this beautiful swiss villa in May 2018. The house was built in 1914 by my great grandparents, and has been in the family since then. My mother grew up in this house, but the last decades it has only been used as a vacation house. The villa is a cosy wooden house with lots of charm and personality. Two en suite living rooms make a great space for one big or two medium sized families. From the kitchen you can see the breathtaking mountains (snow-capped year-round). They are actually Norway´s most painted mountains. From the living room windows and the balconies both at the main and second floors you have a view of the beautiful fjord. The kitchen and bathrooms are modernized in the nineties, so they offer modern comforts like a heated floor downstairs and a small bathtub upstairs, along with dishwasher, microwave oven. There a washing room with washing machine, space for for instance fish gutting and a freezer. About 700 meters away there is the brand new sandy beach, nicely built up and very child/family friendly. We have done some renovation in the house, but there is still some remaining work. We hope you will have a pleasant stay despite this.
    Balestrand is special in the way it forms a cosy village with a well defined centre, unlike most small places in Norway, where the houses and facilities are more spread out. From the house you can get all that you could wish for literally within walking distance from the house: Cafés, museums, grocery stores, design stores, bars, restaurants, post office, aquarium, bike/boat/canoe/kayak rental, guided fishing trips to mention but a few. Other than that, Balestrand is known for wonderful light and breathtaking nature. This area of the Sognefjord has welcomed tourists since the early 1800s. English lords and the German Emperor Wilhelm II also spent a lot of time in Balestrand and the Sognefjord area during about a hundred years ago. These visitors left their mark on the many villas in Balestrand, which show traces of both English and German wooden house architecture, most notably perhaps the use of dragon heads and beam ends on the facade. The English Church also is very special. This is also a wooden building, has many windows to the fjord, and a petite charm. Its interior was actually also the model for the crowning scene in the blockbuster film Frost. Balestrand is known as the art village by the Sognefjord, Balestrand has inspired artists from all over the world. The historic Kviknes Hotel in Balestrand houses a large collection of paintings by painters that have visited the area and stayed at the hotel. There are also several galleries and exhibitions that are open throughout the summer months. The wonderful light and breathtaking nature still inspire artists from all over the world. If you spend the night in Balestrand, you can also take a trip to Fjærland and visit The Glacier Muesum, go kayaking on the fjord, or go for a guided tour across the glacier Jostedalsbreen. In the winter time you can drive to the mountain Saurdalen, with great cross-country skiing. In this snow-proof area approximately 600 m.o.h. there are usually good skiing conditions from December to April. There are 10 km of groomed trails in open mountain forests, with excellent starting points for hikes to the high mountains. There's a children's drawstring with a 200 meters draft length, trays with varying degrees of difficulty and floodlights.
  • The room is OK, the mail communication is faster, near the pier, not bad.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Bente Johanne's place. The house is spacious. The kitchen had all of the items we needed for cooking. The location is great. You can walk easily to most places in Balestrand. The views from the upper floor were great. They were very quick to respond to our questions. Our children enjoyed playing with the toys that were provided and jumping on the trampoline.

  • We probably could not have found a better place for our stay in Balestrand. The house was fully equipped for our two-family groupe and the location is perfect. Very highly recommended !!

    Alexis2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfection!! We rented this house for our group of 7 to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday. The house is charming, spacious and comfortable. The location is so convenient to the dock to go sightseeing in the fjords, and the views from the patios make you never want to leave! We felt like we could spread out and have our own space, and there was plenty of room for us to eat at the big table or hang out in the living room as a group as well. If you have the chance to stay here, do it! You will fall in love!

  • Spacious villa in the center of Balestrand. We were two families who were going to a wedding at Kviknes hotel. The house was right next to the hotel and had plenty of room for the kids to romp on. Nice and clean, good rooms. Everything was in place by the towels etc. Nice and clear communication with the hosts. Highly recommended.

  • Our stay at Tuba's guesthouse was absolutely awesome. As we were the only guests during our stay we had the entire house on our own and started every morning having breakfast on the balcony and watching the fjord. The view is stunning!!! The kitchen was equipped with everything you need and Tuba also provided some emergency food. All bathrooms were modern and clean. Balestrand is only a 15 minutes walk away which is really pleasant. Last but not least the surrounding area has lot to offer. We recommend and would definitely stay again.

We didnt have a car and arrived by ferry, and were kindly picked up by the hosts. Balestrand is a easy 10-15 minute walk. We would stay again and recommend staying to any one passing through Balestrand. Many thanks Tuba.

    Richard2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the Guest House. Best views in Balestrand! Tiny bedrooms (just bunks) and huge bathrooms (clean and nice decor). Big, comfortable lounge and decent sized kitchen, though tricky for four families to cook at once. Pleasant outdoor spaces. The house is a long walk to the centre but an enjoyable one

    Amanda2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb and we loved it. It was very clean. Friendly host. We were planning to walk to the guesthouse but they picked us up. They had bikes that we were allowed to use. House is exactly like the picture. We are already making plans for next time. Near the house there is a lovely walking path for 2.7 km in the nature. Definitely try that or go for a challenge one.

    Suheyda2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy, big house. Bliz clean rooms with bunk beds. Sheets and towels were provided. The living room is beautifully decorated and the kitchen well equipped. Enough space with several seats, so you can go well out of the way. There were three new (shower) baths. Shampoo, shower gel and hair dryer were available. The view of the fjord is breathtaking and priceless. Actually, you could spend the whole day either on the sofa or on the balcony watching the ferries. There was a daily cleaning of all shared premises. Tuba greeted us warmly and showed us the house. We felt right at home. Free internet access. Community games available. Many thanks to Tuba and her team for this unforgettable stay! We'll be back!

    Andrea2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The guesthouse was the perfect base for our short stay in Balestrand. We were only here for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Check-in was extremely easy, the kitchen and bathrooms were well-equipped, and the walk into Balestrand is very pleasant and not too far! We also had an excellent meal at the Ciderhuset. We would definitely recommend this place to other guests!

  • We were a family of 5 traveling around Norway for a week. This was our favorite Airbnb! It was recently renovated and everything was new and clean. The views of the fjord were fantastic especially from the large deck with comfortable seating/dining options overlooking the marina and fjord. The location could not have been better. Just a 2 minute walk to grocery store, cafe and our favorite restaurant Gekkens, owned and operated by our relatives! Siv was very responsive to any questions that we had. I highly recommend visiting Balestrand and staying at Siv s place.

Apartment very well located in front of the small port and close to all shops and restaurants. Canoeing, hiking in the surrounding mountains, swimming ... Balestrand is definitely worth it!
