Request to Book

This newly renovated 2-story family apartment in central Oslo sleeps up to 6 adults plus 2 babies/toddlers in cribs and is a great base from which to explore the city. We love the high ceilings, the artistic flair, wooden floors and open-plan living ideal for young families. The residence also has a balcony, shared garden and terrific children's play space on the upper floor. Across the road is a lovely park, with lawns for picnics and pool for splashing along with a playground, and the property is close to public transport links. Oslo is a great city for families, with an International Museum of Children’s Art, city boat rides and a winter of ice-skating and tobogganing. As a bonus, this apartment has a host of baby and toddler equipment, making travelling with little ones slick and easy, and breakfast is provided. The welcoming hosts are able to offer bikes and advice on what to see and do with kids in the area. For couples with one baby only, the first floor of the apartment can be made available for a lower rate, complete with a crib, baby equipment and master bedroom, living space and kitchen.

Keyna and her family went above and beyond as hosts - even taking us back to the train station at 1am to retrieve a lost bag. Keyna made dinner reservations for us, suggested local museums and spots of interest, and helped organize transportation. A lovely family and beautiful home!

Fagerborg, Oslo

Midsummer hill

Just to the north of the city center, this district of Oslo is near St Hanshaugen Park. One of the city’s largest, it used to be the spot where the town gathered to celebrate midsummer, and has great city views and an open air café in the summer. It’s easy to walk or take the bus or tram for five minutes or so to reach the city’s main attractions from here.
