The host is perfect! The house is cozy, very clean, and has a magnificent view! Actually, the trip was much more wonderful than our expectation.
The host really take care of the guests. They even helped us to protect our car by preventing falling snow. When we left, it was raining, so the host cleared the route to the main street, and carefully instructed us how to drive on the slippery road.
We mainly came to Tromsø to see Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and the house is in an extremly suitable location. One night the host even came to remind us that Northern Lights were appearing. Aurora Borealis could be effortlessly seen from the house. Furthermore, the house is not far from the town center, with less light polution, while still easy to access other landmarks (Sommarøy, Grøtfjord, etc).
We could rent snowshoes at a very cheap price during our trip. We wore the snowshoes to go to the camping fireplace on the nearby hill. It was a nice experience and we strongly recommend other guests to do that.
The host was so helpful. They suggested places to visit and shopping. They maintain a notebook for activitities and interesting places. They are flexible with check-in and check-out time. We found that they were very responsive to our questions and so kind to answers.
I saw that our host had welcomed international guests and all of them had enjoyed their accommodation. We, indeed, feel as if the host and us were neighbors and knew each other for years. We will definitely book again if we return!
