Request to Book

This large, beautifully designed 4th floor apartment next to the Royal Palace and steps from the chic Hegdehaugsveien shopping district in the heart of Oslo sleeps up to 7 plus a baby. Brimming with charming shops, fine restaurants, and hip gastropubs, the neighborhood has a safe, relaxed residential feel, with most of the city’s best galleries, museums and sights nearby. The apartment is 170sq m with five rooms and a large kitchen. Arranged with the children's bedroom facing a quiet courtyard, it’s a stylish place to stay with contemporary accents, international art pieces mixing with Scandinavian vintage furniture, and sun streaming in through the windows. The living room can be used as an additional sleeping space, while the kids room is big and bright with a crib and two beds plus art supplies, Lego and multilingual children’s books to keep children of all ages entertained. After an afternoon exploring Edward Munch’s works in the National Gallery, a 10 minute stroll away, parents can open the white French doors leading to the beautiful master bedroom to rest while the kids are napping.

We are a Norwegian/ German family: Erik, Andrea and Dagny. We work with contemporary art and love to travel to keep ourselves updated but also for pure pleasure. Dagny is a cute 11 year old girl who usually joins us on our travels. We do not like normal hotels and have done some very successful home exchanges over the last 10 years. We have stayed in private homes in Guatemala, New York City, Puerto Rico, Sicily, Bankok and several times on the French Riviera. Our home in Oslo is a very big 170 square meter 5room city apartment. We also have a safe backyard garden that you can overlook from our sunny balcony. Our place in Berlin is also also quite spacious with 3 bedrooms, approximately 100m2, also overlooking a closed backyard. We love nice design and good quality furniture and toys. Since we work with art we are very visual people and love our environments sober and beautiful. We feel that both our homes manage a combination of stylish but also super child friendly and relaxed. We love that quality in other homes as well.

Our family of 4 had an absolutely wonderful time at the Parkveien residence. It is filled with light and art and was especially spacious. There were toys and books for the kids, and a nice kitchen for preparing meals. It was a very relaxing place to stay while in Oslo. Andrea was also a magnificent host, responding to me within minutes most of the time when I had questions.

Andrea's apartment is clean, comfortable, quiet, modern and full of artful touches. The location is just steps from public transportation, as well as many great restaurants, cafes, and bakeries. Andrea was very responsive and accommodating! We had everything we needed for our infant son!

Hegdehaugsveien, Oslo

Museums, parkland and coffee houses

In the center of the action, this district of Oslo includes Castle Park, the National Theatre, the National Museum, full of Munch paintings, and a lot of beautiful residential buildings painted in candy colors. It's easy to walk from here to almost everywhere else in the city, and it's just 4km north of the Old Town and the main rail station.
