Utterly extraordinary location - fabulous home and outstanding hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

If you are dithering about booking DON'T, believe all the reviews that go before me, this really is a fantastic holiday home. Remi was amazing from the start, he helped me to organise flights, car hire, the correct route to use (avoiding ferries) as well as replying to all manner of random questions. In addition, Remi and May waited for us until quite late at night, to help us get our supplies before taking us to the house. We arrived in snow and the dark, so were unaware of what was in store for us across the Fjord - more on this later. The Hytte, was utterly beautiful, the photos make it look lovely, but in real life it is even better. Everything has been thought of, crocks to wear to the hot tub, games for the family to play, binoculars to watch the comings and goings across the water. It was comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed, we largely cooked for ourselves, the beds were wonderful, the duvets were amazing, we were so toasty. The boys (17 and 13) had a bunk bed, with a double at the bottom and were very happy. There were blankets and towels, clothes, dishwasher powder, we didn't need anything. The house was so warm, everything dried quickly, with an airer and warm floors. Remi organised for us to go dog sledding - this is a must. We meet Hilda and her family and we had the most amazing time, we just could not stop smiling. They took care of us, we had coffee before and after, they had suits for the boys to wear and we got involved in harnessing the dogs and getting them ready, it really was an experience that was worth every penny. The hot tub was marvellous - really clean and wonderful to sit in in the snow, or as the sun went down. As for the scenery....that first morning we woke to the sun, blue skies and the fjord, it was truly spectacular. We didn't tire of watching the weather come in and the changing skies. Neither did the boys tire of playing in the snow, building snow men or jumping in it. It was so quiet, it really is quite remote (15-20 minutes to the town), but we felt so safe and enjoyed listening to the gentle lapping of the waves. We saw a seal and a pod of dolphins. As a family, we were able to disconnect from the world and laugh and play. The cabin has all mod cons for entertainment and there is a world to walk and hike through. If you want a break from the world, to see some outstanding scenery, Norway is for you, everyone was kind and friendly and we really want to come back. Thank you.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Sortland cabin is a beautiful retreat for anyone interested in reconnecting with nature. It is perfectly situated on a fjord secluded from the more active area of Sortland, but it does not feel isolated. Anything you can think of is provided, which made our stay incredibly comfortable. We were extremely impressed with the property owner's care for us and our children. We were discreetly looked after in many ways, and I am so appreciative for the tremendous care. I felt like a guest in their home, which made our vacation extra special. I would never expect such treatment, but it was sure nice to have so far from home. We stayed in early spring and had a lovely time playing in the snow and watching the northern lights from the hot tub. I am sure the summer offers even more exciting activities with the beach and easy access to the water. It takes a while to get anywhere, so a car is a must. It is the perfect staging point to explore the islands or merely relax in true comfort.

"WOW"! what more can I say ?

  • 5 of 5

If you have ever considered visiting anywhere in Scandinavia ...Norway is the place to go . This Sortland 'Cabin' is definitely the place to stay ! My husband & I have stayed through HomeAway for many years. We have met many wonderful owners and enjoyed so many gorgeous stays. Remi and May are the Best of the best ! From day one every question we had was answered quickly and completely. Remi helped us plan our flights, car rental and sight seeing. He was always there for us, (if we needed him to translate) but Never intrusive. From the 'cabin', which is really a stunning house...We was Eagles, Whales, and the Northern Lights. Yes, THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ! If you are looking to be amazed, have an adventure or just relax with a book...This IS the cabin for you! Thank you Remi and May !!!

Stunning place!

  • 5 of 5

If, like we were, you are trying to decide whether to stay in Vesteralen or Lofoten, then ponder no more. This is a stunning place! It is set in a quiet, natural environment right on the fjord with magnificent views and big open skies. Everything is set up to enjoy the location; large windows, great decks and a perfectly placed hot tub.

We never tired of the ever-changing views of the mountains, fjord and the sunsets. No matter which way we travelled from the house the scenery was spectacular.

Inside the house is stylish, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The heating was very efficient, and we could imagine it being comfortable even in the coldest weather.

And to the important question: Northern Lights in October? - most certainly! It was a fantastic display and we couldn't imagine being in a better place to view them.

The owners were very welcoming, helpful and thoughtful. We highly recommend them and their magnificent house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words - it was our pleasure to have you as our guests. Our place is secluded and hidden so perfect if you like to escape from the mass tourism that Lofoten brings. Hope to see you back with us some day :) Kindly regards Remi & May-Helen

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This really is a class act. From the moment of arrival to our departure the cabin exceeded expectations in every way. The photos are good on the site but when you get there you can't help but be struck by the staggering views. Remi was on hand whenever we needed him, he even met us beforehand and showed us exactly where to go.

Highlights are:

1) The view. Never gets boring, constantly changing. The weather here is something else. One minute bright sunshine, the next hail, snow and high winds. Utterly awesome.

2) Hot tub. There is something really special about sitting outside in a 40 degree hot tub when it's below zero outside. Sitting there and watching the sun go down (cabin is west facing) was a real treat. We kept having to pinch ourselves at how lucky we were to find this place.

3) Northern Lights. We specifically wanted somewhere away from any major towns/cities because we wanted to see the Northern Lights. We saw them three times in five days. At night, when the sky is clear you can either stand out on the decking area staring at the snow covered mountains or, you can simply sit in the living room, turn off all the lights and wait for the magic to begin. We were truly lucky to see them as often as we did and it's in no small part to the location of the cabin.

4) Kitchen is exceptionally well stocked. It had literally everything you could need.

All in all this is truly one of the best cabin's we've ever stayed in and we've used Homeaway a lot. Thank you Remi for a truly special Norwegian holiday. I hope we can return one day!

Feels like being on a private luxury cruise

  • 5 of 5

Staying two weeks in the Moldvik cabin (July 2014) felt like a private luxury cruise on the fjord. The sight changed almost every hour: another colour, another sky, another sea. From inside and from the terrace we observed birds (sea gulls attacking a sea eagle!), fish, small dolphins (we heard them breathe!) and giant sea otters. Once we went down to the beach and saw five small sea otters, walking on the beach.

It was a pleasure to relax here, to go in the hot tub with incredible view and even to sunbathe. We didn’t realize the weather can be so good in Vesterålen.

We did some fine excursions. Twice we did a day trip to the island of Andøya. The first time we did the whale safari and saw five sperm whales. In fact it were three different whales and we were really close to them. In the evening we drove back by the west side of the island with stunning sunset views. On our second visit to Andøya we did the puffin safari from the lovely coastal village of Bleik. On the small island of Bleiksøya we saw thousands of puffins (in fact there are more than 200 000 of them) and sea eagles just above our heads.

We did other excursions as well, such as a small hiking tour on the beaches near Stø (part of the Queen’s route). We also hiked between Straumsjoen and Husvågen but this trail was badly marked and in a bad state.

A very special and exciting moment was the successful fishing trip with the landlord (Remi). It was thrilling to realise that there is so much life underneath the surface of the Eidsfjord. We caught several coal fish (or pollock) and it was delicious to eat them with flatbrød (we got a cooking lesson from Remi).

In a nutshell, it was a perfect holiday in a perfect house in a perfect landscape. It didn’t feel like a rental cabin but like being invited to a lovely home. It’s such a pleasure to cook in the fully equipped kitchen, everything at hand, and to relax on the terrace. It was so peaceful! We have never had such a great self-catering accommodation and we have stayed in many of them.
