We had such a relaxing and great week at the apartment. The view to the sea is incredible. The people there are very friendly and nice. The apartment is clean and has a very modern interior. (Apple TV with Netflix & more)
It is possible to take the canoe or to use the sauna in the Retreat Center. This is the perfect place to come down and relax. You can do a lot for your inner life. Close to the apartment (10 min walk) is a grocery store and in the surrounding area you can have some nice walks and hikes. In about 30 minutes by car or by bus you arrive in Bergen. It's a nice city where you can also explore many things. Don't miss the fish market.
We were so glad that we decided to spend some time at the apartment. Thank you!
New, clean and very complete appartment. Loved the view and relaxing atmosphere. The host was very friendly, and had some excellent tips for coffee/diner.
We really enjoyed our 5-day stay at the Seaview Apartment at Ask. Bjarke is a wonderful host, friendly and helpful. The 2 bedroom apartment is well equipped with a full kitchen, living room and spacious bathroom. We also liked the covered patio overlooking the fjord. Peaceful, close to Bergen but away from the crowds. SPAR grocery nearby along with the passenger ferry to Bergen (at Kleppesto) just 15 minutes away by car. Note: Having a car is a good idea as Ask is on an island near Bergen. However, if you don't mind a 5-10 minute walk, bus service is also available.
We had an amazing stay at the Seaview property! Bjarke and his wife were wonderful hosts sharing with us the restaurants, grocery mart, and bakery info as well as directions to the ferry for quick and enjoyable access to Bergen. The apartment had everything we could ask for available to us including yoga, sauna, wifi and cable / Netflix tv. The view was absolutely captivating both daytime and at night! We were right on the water which was a pleasant surprise. This was an exceptional and private place to stay with so much to offer for a great price! We highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Bergen or the surrounding areas!!! We are grateful for the incredible experiences we had by staying in this location. It was stunningly beautiful and every direction you look is more captivating!
The apartment is situated 30 seconds from the edge of the fjord. There is a little seating area with a bathing platform (should you wish to brave the cold Norwegian waters!) and the owners will lend you a canoe if you ask. The view is stunning.
The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and really cosy. It has everything you would need - kitchen equipment, dishwasher, smart TV etc. - and is a really lovely refuge to come back to at the end of an active day hiking in the nearby woods and hills.
The owners technically live in the same house but you'd never know it, they respected our privacy and the apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door.
