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.

The perfect start to our Norwegian honeymoon, Mona's 'room with view' was a beautiful, cozy place to just relax for a couple days. Mona really thought of everything, from providing a hand cart for luggage to leaving us a kind note and bottle of wine to making sure there was enough food in the kitchen to tide us over till we got to a store. It rained almost the entire time we were there but we still loved our stay. In addition to the gorgeous views of the sea, we enjoyed the view of the sheep next door and the company of two very friendly cats.

'Room with a view'is a truly special place, the pictures don't do the views from the terrace justice - it's beautiful. We spent both sjnny and rainy days there and found it incredibly relaxing, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Mona made getting to and from the island really easy and was always very willing to give tips about what to do nearby - including helping us to make sense of the ferry timetsbles. Mokster may seem remote but the ferries are very reliable, making it quite easy to find. We love our stay and would recommend it to anyone e look for a peaceful few days enjoying nature (we also recommend going for a swim, even if it is cold!) Thanks again Mona!

Fantastic view from the sitting room and patio- makes for a very relaxing stay. Mona is incredibly thoughtful and was very nice to supply us with some basics like coffee and cooking basics to make our stay easy

Mona's home was undoubtedly one of our best Airbnb experiences. A truly magical place we felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to experience living in such a beautiful and remote location. Mona was the perfect host and excellent communication. We hope to come again some time. Takk!

Mona's room with a view on Møkster is a truly a little bit of heaven on earth. Just follow the pace of the island and let the sound of the sea and wind guide you. Please switch of your phone, no need for that. And you might spot a dolphin while you a are sipping your wine.

'Room with a view' is a real gem if you want to be close to nature. The surroundings are stunning, with the ever-changing sea and sky right there and beautiful walks close by. Mona has created a very comfortable and cosy flat, where you feel at home immediately. She is an excellent host, being friendly, helpful and personal without intruding on the visitors' privacy, and in that way, Mona exemplifies the best of Airbnb. Only one warning to other visitors: you may not want to leave again!

What a gem - super place to get away from it all. Mona is a fantastic host with great communication before and during the visit. The island is beautiful and we enjoyed the red walk and chilling out on the deck, enjoying the view from the comfy chairs. We took the ferry from Bergen and enjoyed the whole adventure. The apartment has everything you need and more. Many thanks to Mona for a great stay!

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!
