Møkster is a small island likely to melt your heart, all year. You find a local shop and fantastic trails by the ocean. This is the authentic countryside, still close to Bergen. 3 min from the apartment is a good fishing spot and a viking grave.
A room with a view: Private and cozy apartment for rent on this charming island close to Bergen and Flesland airport. Out the big windows you see the fjord and the mountains. On a clear day you can even spot the glaziers. Amazing trails by the ocean start 2 minutes away. The great terrace (40m2) with panoramic fjord-view is all yours during the stay. The apartment has wireless broadband and can also be a workspace if you need surroundings that provide both inspiration and concentration.
The living room has two armchairs facing spectacular view. A daybed can be made into a 180 double bed. The dining/bar table is also perfect as a workspace- with the same view to the fjord. In a small bedroom you find a 140 bed. Living room and bedroom was remodeled March 2016. You have your own kitchen (new spring 2014) and a nice, tiled bathroom. Underfloor heating in all rooms except bedroom. Apart from the ordinary equipment, there is a washing machine in the kitchen. The house was built in 2006, so everything is in good shape.
The island is a hidden pearl. So if you wish to get away from the tourist mainstream of Bergen city- this is it.
You can easily get here from Bergen Center and Flesland Airport. No need for a car. About one hour by boat from Bergen center, 40 min from Flesland Harbor. The flat is 15 minutes walk from the Møkster harbor. The beach is 10 minutes away, the best fishing spot and the playground with football court is 3 minutes away (everything by foot).
The flat is 35m2 and suits 1-3 persons. Note that you have to pass through the living room to get from the bedroom to the bathroom. A baby chair and cot is available. You won't find more peaceful nature and stunning beauty this close to Norway's 2. biggest town.
Chances are good to spot porpoise passing by or sea eagles by the ocean.
You have your own private entrance from the terrace. When booked, I send a mail with more details on how to get to Møkster and how to find the house.
Interaction with guests
I will do my best to provide you with any information you need and make you feel welcome. First of all I want my guests to experience privacy and the peaceful surroundings here. I will be on the floor upstairs or available on phone if you need help or info. Møkster is a very safe and quiet place with friendly and helpful habitants.
Other things to note
Bedlinen and towels are included.
Note that the shop opens at 10:00 and closes 16.00. Off season it also takes a siesta in the middle. Also- no local shop in Norway sells wine, only beer.
You can borrow fishing equipment.
Bring good, water proof shoes and rain cloths/wind proof clothes if you plan to have a walk around the island.
I live upstairs all year with my family. Give me a word if you need any advice on how and when to get here.
No loud music after 24.00. No indoor smoking. Apart from that- enjoy!
I am an art historian, teacher / headmaster and musician living on Møkster all year round. I have used Airbnb myself over the last two years and realized that my own house and island can be the perfect hideaway for stressed cosmopolitans and others seeking peace and quiet. I live here with my three boys. The house is big (200m2) with possibilities to rent both the studio apartment (all days), the main level (certain days) and the whole house (if we go on holiday). I started to host summer 2013 and it has been a great pleasure to meet people from all over the world. All the guests have pointed out the fabulous nature and the peace of mind that they find here, combined with the easy access via Bergen city or Flesland airport. Welcome!
