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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Welcome!
Mona.

We had a wonderful time on the island of Møkster. It is a beautiful and peaceful island, great for relaxing and getting in touch with the outdoors. Mona was very hospitable, and was very approachable. She lent us her fishing equipment and we caught some decent fish off the rocks just a few minutes walk away. Mona even baked us fresh bread one morning - very kind. The place is small but has everything you would need, and is super modern and stylish. Mona and her family live directly above which she is always approachable but also means it can get a bit noisy with footsteps and other noises at times. But it didn't bother us really, we were too distracted by the ocean vistas and porpoises swimming by in the fjord! If you want to have a great retreat, come here!

This was my third time at Mona's Room with a View. It has become my cherished place to get away from it all. Thank you, Mona!

I can't recommend this heavenly little place any more. The flat is furnished very nicely and comfortably, and Mona was so generous with the provisions she left us - but the view was stunning and right on the door step. It gave us the peace and tranquillity we had been craving. We were very lucky with the weather and the island was stunning under the sunlight, the walks around the rocks really taking our breath away. We also did a bit of fishing which was a lot of fun and Mona and her partner were very helpful with this! You must try this Air BnB and visit the gorgeous island of Møkster.

We had such a lovely time in Møkster! It is an idyllic island a short distance from Bergen. Great hospitality and communication. The apartment was lovely and well-equipped for a relaxing stay. Nice hiking around the island. The description on the site was accurate. Thanks so much for everything!

I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Mona's and I would recommend it to anybody. The little island Mokster was breathtakingly beautiful. You access to Mokster by boat, but Mona sends you a detailed instruction, so you won't have a problem getting to Mokster. The room had everything I needed, all functioning perfectly, including things like WiFi and washing machine. The "red trail" that leads you to beautiful path through Mokster. It's really worth trying. It was one of the best AirBnB stays I've had. thank you, Mona!

We had an amazing time staying at Mona's cozy appartment. It was so quiet and lovely. The only noises we heard were from mother nature or the occasional boat passing by. The only time we encountered other people was while exploring the island or when going to the store. Exactly what we wanted. The appartment and the view are just as described. The appartment was clean and beautifully furnished and decorated. The view was just spectacular and peaceful at the same time. We found a lot of extras in the kitchen, which we appreciated very much. We would definitely come back. It's the perfect gateway from Bergen.

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!
