My house is a charming villa from 1890 with 4,5 rooms - 123 m2. It is in a big garden with an old swimming pool (too cold from mid august). It is very close to the Train station, Solbråtan (17 min from Oslo). Close to a fantastic Spa: The Well, shops, a forest & lake and Tusenfryd.

The space
The house is 123 m2 and A bit more about Villa Heimkjær: It was built in 1890, and I have owned it since 2003. It is a wooden house with central heating, well furnished/equipped with all you need. It has a dining room for 6, kitchen with place for 5 for eating, a big living room with 42" TV, stereo, blue ray etc. The bathroom has a combined bathtub/shower. The aquarium in the photo has been removed!
The two full bedrooms have double beds (160 cm wide) + a sofa and an extra matrass. You have plenty of space for hanging and laying your clothes/things in closets, drawers and shelves, and there are an extra "guest" room/library that may be used as well with an extra bed. Please note that you will have to pass through this room to get to the bedrooms. The house is best suited for families.
In the summer, the garden and pool may be used as you wish. For long term rent, advice on pool procedures will be given, but for short term stay, I will take care of all. There is also a small fish pond with spring water in the summer. The "outside" living room by the entrance and various sitting arrangements in the garden also allows for a very relaxed time outside. There is a coal barbeque that you may use.
There are plenty of opportunities to take walks in the nearby forest, by the lake etc. But it is still very close by the city! Only 17 min by train, and you are in the heart of Oslo! or 15 min by train to Ski, and you will find one of the largest shopping centres in the country! Kolbotn itself has a shopping center, a cinema and fitness studio (Elixia). There are plenty of things to see/do in the region: for the winter, alpine skiing ((website hidden)) is only 5 min away, and miles of nice cross country tracks are minutes away! My place is perfect if you want to get away for a while to find peace/relaxation away from stress etc. The only thing to note: the train passes by, but you won't hear it after a while.
Welcome to my home!

Guest access
Guests may use all the house except the basement where I store some of my things. There is a washing machine there that may be used still.
The equipment in the house may be used. There is also a bike for use (a bit old..). Free parking for up to three cars in front of the house.
The house is fully equipped. Toilet paper is provided for the start only (so if you stay longer, you have to buy it yourself). Also soap, laundry detergent, shampoo and other toilet articles you need to bring yourself. However, tablets for dishwasher and soap for dishwashing is provided.

Other things to note
The house is very centrally located as it is 1/2 min away from the train station - 17 min to Oslo Central Station. You are very close to a supermarket - 5 min to walk, and 10 min away (or 1 station on the train) you have a good shopping centre, cinema, gym (Elixia) and restaurants/coffee shops etc. The nature is very close by - only 5 min. walking and you are by a lake in the forest! So there are good possibilities for enjoyment - even without a rental car.
There are trains passing by, but only a few are very noisy (cargo).

For the pool, please note that it is not heated, so temperatures in the summer is very dependent on the weather. You will have to keep it clean yourself during the stay, but I will fix chemicals etc. for short stay, and give instructions for longer stays. I cannot be present always for this purpose, so we need to arrange this in each case.

Location

Kolbotn, Akershus, Norway

The house is close to public transport (local train and bus) and the nature! Kolbotn is an independent municipality 2 km from Oslo city border, and is a very charming place to be - close to a lake and a sandy beach, Hvervenbukta is only 5 min. by car or 15 min by bus (83) away! Tusenfryd amusement park is only 5 min. away by car.
For nature lovers there are plenty of opportunities to walk in the forest, by lakes, go skiing in the winter, both cross country tracks and alpine (ingierkollen) are very close by. Drøbak is worth visiting, and there are many other things to see also outside Oslo!

I am a pretty global person and have travelled widely, and know the pleasure of staying in private homes. I therefore want to offer my home to guests from all over. I will be able to give you advice on places to go, what to see etc. I am working close by, but temporarily I stay some other place, but will be available when needed. I prefer long time rentals. My place is ideal for families, especially in the summer as it is close by Tusenfryd, and has a pool and plenty of space to play. Dogs are also welcome! I am allergic to cats, so they are not so welcome... A bit about me: I am working as a consultant, mostly assisting small businesses with advice and financial issues. I am engaged as a social entrepreneur, and work a lot internationally as well as locally with social/business related issues. I like very much to meet people from all over, and hope you will enjoy my place! A bit more about Villa Heimkjær: It was built in 1890, and I have owned it since 2003.
