Magnificent position overlooking the fjord, excellent access around the island and to Tromso.


The location on the website was 600m east of the actual site. The directions to the house give the location of the junction from the main road and not of the house. The description of the route to the house includes signs which no longer exist for a picnic area. The house is about 70m down a set of steps, information not given in the description.


The website does not mention bed linen or towels. On enquiry were told that bed linen would be available at extra cost but no towels were available. Both are normally an integral part of a rental.

The website states that there is a washing machine and freezer; these are in the owner’s house and not in the rental house. It was unclear whether they were available. It also states there are 4 hot plates; there are 2.

The kitchen area is on a narrrow platform about 60cm above the rest of the living area; this made moving around awkward and hazardous. The heating is excellent and the living area comfortable with an excellent view.

On the website, there is just one photo of the inside of the house. As a result, it is not clear how small the bedrooms are, and the raised area for the kitchen is not visible.

Although the website makes no mention of wifi, a limited signal was available; this was much improved closer to the owner’s house.

On arrival, the bathroom smelled of drains; that evening the bathroom floor flooded as the drains could not cope with water from the kitchen, the bathroom sink or from the shower, making these three unusable. The owner supplied us with a chemical treatment which had no effect. He then attempted to clear the drain but gave very little improvement.

After 3 days, it was clear that we would need to move accommodation and the owner was very helpful in arranging this for us and kindly allowed us to use his house until the new accommodation became available.

L'endroit est charmant, la cabane sympa et les propriétaires très discrets. Attention l'accès n'est pas possible à une personnes handicapées. La région est magnifique, surtout en hivers, on a même eu la visite de rennes et d'élans. Il est impératif d'avoir un véhicule. Nous recommandons cette location.
