Our home

We are currently furnishing and putting the last touch on the apartment which we just bought, and will therefore send pictures on interior upon request before adding the photos on this page. Style is modern and bohemian-chic. Clean, tidy, newly renovated but still charming characteristic of historical building.

Modern Kitchen. Big, spacious and bright living room with windows on both corner-walls, view over busy main street. Big lounge which also allows a person to sleep on, adjustable dining table with seating for up to 6-8 guests. Samsung smart TV with cable and wifi.

Spacious bedroom with big king size bed. Small baby-room "within" the bedroom, so if you are traveling with a baby you can also use the baby bed.

Bathroom with washing machine, separate WC.

Enclosed building block with garden, small park and playground.

We also have a car (Renault megane sedane 2005) possibly free to use.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a young and professional couple (Helene is an engineer and Daniel a musician, see my Homepage) with a 1.5 year old daughter. We love to travel, but our base is in Norway. We are Norwegian and Australian and our baby is born in the USA. Our work-schedules allow us to travel a lot so we would love to swap our home with yours to see your town and also to give you the opportunity to visit Oslo.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This is just the perfect location (Torshov/Sagene) to stay while visiting Oslo, if you are after somewhere just between the urban and the green/nature. Close to (walking distance) big parks, gorgeous Oslo-river and still the vibrancy of city life just around the corner.

The tram-line that goes through the city is just outside the apartment. It will take you only 2-3 stops to the urban and hip town of Grunerlokka with loads of cafes, bars and restaurants, or the other direction, to the big shopping center (2 stops) Which is also just a 15 minutes walk away.

Newly arrived international Oslo-ers insist this is brilliant location to stay to experience Oslo. The heart of Oslo (royal palace etc) is a 10 minutes bus ride away, from just outside the door (or a bike ride away). We have 1 bicycle free to use.
