About our home

We have a large house, and half of the house is Cathinka´s glass studio, and the other half is where we live.
Our home is colourful, warm, safe and has a relaxed happy vibe. I have to mention that the floor in our living room is made of 23000 small pieces of wood that we shopped, sanded and put down. It took 4 ever to make, ha ha ha, not that funny at the time, but now it is ;-)
Since Cathinka is an glassblower, we have nice unique handmade glasses to drink of.
The house has 3 bedrooms, and a bath upstairs, and kitchen, living room and toilet on the ground floor. The house has a normal standard. The entrance, living room and kitchen is newly renovated, and the rest of the house is from the 80´s.
From the living room you can see the ocean and the mountains. Its 200 meters from town senter of Kabelvåg, and 5 kilometers from Svolvær. Kabelvåg is an old town (1000 years old) and is founded on the rich fishery outside our doorstep.

Light and bright interior with air con. Separate shower & bath on the ground floor, and a main bathroom upstairs. Comfy beds.

All sorts of kitchen appliances & dishes, security, flat screen TV, Bicycles & "spark" in carport. Musical keyboard also available. Car exchange is possible, and will give you the best opportunity to see the most of Lofoten.

We have a trustworthy cleaner who would be available during your stay every week if you wished at kr 200/hour.

Lofoten is ideal for fishing, hiking, downhill-skiing (randonee).
