About our home

Our house is a cozy family home in the beautiful town of Sandefjord in southern Norway. It is a spacious two level house with a large garden and a sunny terrace.
The first floor includes two single bedrooms, a recently renovated bathroom with a shower, a second living room with a TV and a woodburning stove as well as a laundry room (including a washing machine) and a food storage room.
On the second floor we have the main living room with attached dining area, large panoramic windows and a door to the terrace with access to the garden, a little kitchen equipped with all necessary items plus a little breakfast corner, the master bedroom, a guest room with an extra bed and another bathroom with a bathtub.

It is a ca. 15-minute walk to the city center of Sandefjord, which is known for its nice little shops, cafes, lots of live music and a great view of the ocean and its charming summer atmosphere. A number of beautiful beaches are close by (the nearest takes about 10min to get to by bike, most of the others are a short car ride away).
You can get to Oslo either by bus or by train (take the public bus to the main bus / train station, a bus stop is 3 minutes from our house), or you can take the ferry leaving from the city center to Strömstad in Sweden and visit charming Gothenburg on a day trip.
The area is perfect for hikes in beautiful nature, all kinds of water sports as well as for cross country skiing in winter (the prepared trails begins 5 minutes away from our house).
The next downhill resort is approximately one hour away by car.
Our home is not perfect but it is cozy and family- friendly and a great location for a relaxing holiday.

More about us

  1. We are Anja (midwife) and David (teacher), a Canadian / German / Norwegian mixed couple in our 50s. We have two grown up children who are studying in Oslo and in Denmark.
    So far we have exchanged our home five times, four times to France and one time to Spain, and we absolutely loved the experience!!!
    Due to our multinational background, we are always interested in travelling and meeting people from around the world. Before moving to Norway, we lived in Berlin (Germany) and Winnipeg (Canada).
