We are a family of four and had a great stay at Kari’s House in Balestrand. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay of one week or longer and is in a great location to explore the fjord.
Area highlights included great hikes around Balestrand, easy daily boat ride into town, and fishing and relaxing on the dock and garden.
Kari and Inge were very responsive and helpful.
We have traveled all over the world, and seen many beautiful places, but this view cannot be beat! The cabin is simple, clean and cozy. The owner is very nice and accommodating. There is also a very friendly dog that likes to visit and get some attention (belly rub) daily! It's location might be difficult for someone with physical limitations, as there is a hike down the hill from parking (and back up) and the stairs to the bedrooms are quite steep. This was not a problem for us, but might be helpful to know for others considering the property. We were able to use this as our home base and explore some other fjords. Norway is a stunningly beautiful country, and its inhabitants are very friendly.
