The pictures of this home DO NOT do justice to this peaceful, impeccable retreat. Perfectly situated for privacy and the best views, this home is breathtaking in every way. We used the house as a home base for exploring Bergen, Steindalsfossen, and the fjords and it did not disappoint. The hosts were responsive and helpful, while not at all intrusive. The home was exceptionally clean and well appointed. We made coffee and multiple meals in the kitchen, enjoyed soaks in the clawfoot tub, and sat outside enjoying the expansive views, blooming flowers, and peaceful surroundings. Our three day stay here was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to Norway. Would definitely recommend!
We just returned home from a week in Strandvik at Elin and Jostein’s lovely retreat. Like many of the other reviews said, the pictures just can’t do it justice. The views of the mountains and glaciers are expansive and the ever-changing attitude of the water is mesmerizing.
The house is well-appointed and perfect for a family of 4. We truly wouldn’t change anything. Everything was clean, well-designed, and comfortable. We liked staying in Strandvik because it was quiet and off the beaten path. The town is very small but has what you need including a grocery store, gas station, and restaurant.
We made lasting memories in Norway, in large part, due to this lovely home. Elin and Jostein, thank you for your warm hospitality!!
Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings
We stayed in this extremely comfortable house in the most amazing surroundings for a week. It has 180 degree view of the fjord with comfortable areas to sit both inside and outside depending on the weather. The house is very well maintained and felt like a home from home and we were welcomed by Elin on our arrival.
There is a lovely little restaurant in the village where we ate three times.
We visited many spectacular locations within reasonable driving distance of the property.
Elegant style and terrific scenery . . .unforgettable
This lovely house on a beautiful fjord surrounded by mountains -- with a view of a glacier is the best of many vacation homes we have ever visited.
The house is filled with large windows inviting the natural beauty into all parts of the house. Even the deep graceful bathtub has a view just outside the window of an amazing rock formation.
The very clever modern conveniences were a complete surprise: The stove changes temperature immediately, the water temperature from the bathtub faucets changes with the quick turn of the dial, the dish washer is practically silent.
Activities? There is a great three hour hiking trail through the mountains nearby. Swimming off the rocks is not too cold. There is a pretty public beach you could drive to. We didn't try the boat rental, but it was very handy. The restaurant in Strandvik serves great food.
Most important you will be surrounded by lovely decor inside and spectacular nature just out the door.
Stunning and Inviting
This was the most stunning property! The house is perfect for a family or a couple. Everything you need is provided by Elin, who is exceptionally friendly.
The home is even better than her beautiful pictures. The fjord is rugged and peaceful. Such a great place to get away from the city hustle. The Ferry is easy to negotiate, you may want to check the schedule, but even if you miss it, the wait time is minimal and you have a view to enjoy while you wait.
Joker, the grocery store is conveniently located down the road. And their prices for gas are the best I saw while driving all around the county.
I can't wait to come back to this house and enjoy a relaxing vacation which includes great fishing down on the jetty!
Thanks so much Elin! See you again soon :)
Juste magnifique et incroyable !
Nous revenons à nouveau émerveillés de notre quatrième séjour en Norvège cette fois à Fusa, dans cette superbe nouvelle villa de charme, propre très bien agencée, une construction norvégienne avec architecture moderne. Elle est située face à un magnifique fjord de plus de la terrasse on a une vue imprenable comme sur la photo. Les paysages environnants sont de toute beauté. D'autant que Elin, la propriétaire est d'une grande attention, son mari également qui nous a mis une barque à notre disposition, un plus certain pour découvrir la pêche et manger du poisson. On ne peut que recommander cette location qui mérite amplement la note de 5.
