About our home

Our home is comfortable, and spacious. Rebuild in 2006, with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, big kitchen and livingroom.
The house has a nice garden with an wood-fired hot tub, trampoline, a small cottage and also a play area for kids.
Close to our house (5 minutes hiking) we have a small open shelter where it very nice to see the sunset (Picture number 33,34,35,36). There is also a swing and a "homemade", small zip- line near the shelter. Our kids really enjoy this place!

More about us

  1. We are an active family of 6 living in a small town called Ølen, in the west coast of Norway.
    The family consist of Roger (dad, 39) Marianne (mum, 35) Elias (15), Sina (14) Oskar (13) and Tiril (9).
    Roger works shifts at an oil platform (2 weeks at work and 4 weeks at home) and Marianne is the manager of a local bus-company and produces tours nationally and internationally.
    Our 4 kids are active playing football, handball, karate and swimming.
    The kids are all in school, therefor an exchange has to be in the school- holiday.
    If the exchange- destination is in a driving distance we would love to bring our 2 medium sized poodles. (The poodle does not moult and are more allergic- friendly than other breeds) if it is ok by the other part. The dogs are both extremely well behaved and the oldest one "works" in a local nursing home as a therapy dog and are competing nationally in Agility. The other one is only 1 year and is training to get to the same level.
    We also have 2 cats, they can be taking care of by others while we are away, if you do not want their company :)
    We have had one successfully exchange before, and think this is an great way of travelling.
    We would treat your house with absolute respect and like it is our own.

  2. We really want to go somewhere warm! And the kids would be very happy if you have a swimming pool :)
