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.

One of the best place we've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

Really, one of the best houses we've ever rented : the owners do their best to help you and they give you excellent advices, the view from the living room is incredible, the house is comfortable, very clean and perfectly equipped (with five stars for the jacuzzi :-) ), the place is very quiet and mosquitosfree... In fact, I think we fell in love...

Gemütliches Haus zur Nordlichtbeobachtung

  • 5 of 5

Die 10 Tage, die wir in diesem tollen Ferienhaus verbringen durften, waren trotz anfänglich schlechtem Wetter fantastisch!

Man kann dort hervorragend relaxen, während es draußen stürmt oder schneit. Der Blick aus dem Wohnzimmer raus auf den Fjord macht süchtig und man könnte stundenlang einfach nur die wechselnden Lichtverhältnisse draußen, das Wasser, die Berge und die Tiere (Seehunde, Adler) beobachten.

Auch die Lage des Hauses ist gut zur Erkundung der Umgebung geeignet. Wir sind mit unserem Mietwagen nach Andenes, Svolvaer und Bo gefahren.

Die Küche im Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, um sich selbst zu versorgen. Der Kamin und der Whirlpool runden den Aufenthalt dort perfekt ab.

Wer wir wir dann auch noch gerne Nordlicht fotografiert, findet hier beste Voraussetzungen.

Das Leben kann so schön sein ...

  • 5 of 5

... wenn man das Glück hat, in solch einem wundervollen Hause einige Tage verbringen zu dürfen!

Das Bild mit den großen Fenstern war Liebe auf den ersten Blick und so war auch die weite Reise nach Sortland kein Hindernis. Bereits die Busfahrt von Harstad nach Sortland, durch verschneite Wälder, vorbei an kristallgefrorenen Wasserfällen und Bergen und Fjorden war eine Tour durch Winterwunderland bei Vollmond. Unvergesslich.

Meine Vermieter holten mich vom Bus ab und brachten mich nach einem Abstecher im Supermarkt zum Haus.

Ich habe mich von der ersten Sekunde an zu Hause gefühlt. Das Haus ist perfekt und liebevoll eingerichtet. Vom Kaffeelöffel über Nudelsieb, Korkenzieher, Käsereibe und usb-Anschlüssen zum Aufladen der unentbehrlichen Kommunikationsgeräte fehlte einfach nichts. Es gibt aber auch nicht mehr als nötig. Die Technik ist hochmodern und der Wohnungsstil nordisch elegant.

Und dann die Aussicht!!! 180 Grad Blick vom Sessel aus über Land, Berge und Meer.

Obwohl ich alleine reiste, fühlte ich mich niemals einsam im Angesicht dieser grandiosen Natur. Ab und zu flog ein Adler vorbei und ein kleines Fischerboot machte die Runde über den Fjord. Da auch ein Fernglas zur Einrichtung gehört, konnte ich alles ganz genau in Augenschein nehmen. Die Nachbarn, in angehm weiter Entfernung, kamen erst am Wochenende. Lustig war das blaue Licht am Halsband ihres Hundes, welches durch die verschneite Vollmondnacht blinkerte. Sehr heimelig.

Das Nordlicht zierte sich allerdings ein wenig und ich werde wohl noch einmal wiederkommen müssen.

Aber zur Entschädigungen habe ich die Bucht inspiziert, mir nachmittags ein Kaminfeuer angemacht und bin zur Dämmerung in den Whirlpool gestiegen. Was für ein Luxus! Man sitzt im warmen Wasser und genießt die wundervolle Aussicht. Ein paar Schneeflocken trudelten manchmal herab, was alles noch gemütlicher macht.

Meine Vermieter waren einfach zauberhaft! Den zwischen den Flügen verlorenen Koffer brachten sie mir vorbei und haben gleich noch eine Tüte Vogelfutter mitgebracht, damit ich ein paar einheimische Meisen und Dompfaffe anlocken konnte.

Ich könnte mir gut vorstellen, für eine lange Zeit hier zu leben.

Mein Aufenthalt hat mir sehr gut getan, mir Ruhe und Gelassenheit gegeben und eine große Dankbarkeit für meine Gastgeber, dass sie diesen schönen Ort mit mir geteilt haben. Ganz lieben Dank dafür!
