I small cosy log cabin in the nature, by the sea, surrounded by pine trees. Enjoy the stillness, use the sauna, bathe in the fjord and use the yoga room anytime. My recommendation is two persons, but possible with three or four.
The grocery is 10 min walk from the cabin. Open 8.00 - 21.00 on weekdays, Saturday from 9.00 - 20.00. Closed on Sunday.
It is 30 min by car or 50 min by bus to Bergen.
The Log cabin was built in 1990. There is a loft with a big mattress - plenty of space for two people. It's not possible to stand at the loft, but ok to sit up. The stairs to the loft are steep. The two couches in the sitting area can also be used for sleeping. There is a small kitchen with a fridge, coffee machine, toaster and two rings for cooking. There is a shower and a compost toilet. As a guest you have access to the pyramide - 30 meters from the cabin - with wc, showers and sauna. You can use the sauna once for free and after the first one the cost is NOK 100,-
I recommend two people in the log cabin, but four people can sleep there, like a family with two kids. In case more than two, its also possible to rent another cabin in addition or a more modern apartment "Seaview apartment"
I provide you with beddings and towels.
There are basic things in the kitchen as coffee, tea, salt, pepper, suger and often some other dry food left behind by other guests. Also dishwashing detergent.
It is a 10 min walk to the local Spar shop.
If you arrive by bus I will do my best to pick you up at the bus stop (Florida, Ask). If I'm at work and you have to walk its only one kilometer and a nice walk in the village. If not me, my husband or my son will show you the cabin.
The Log cabin is situated at Ask Retreat centre.
Here we are running retreats in yoga and meditatation. If you go to our webpage (website hidden) you can see more pictures and read about the centre and also see life streaming from our web camera. You will see the pyramid and the main log house we use for our retreats, not the log cabin. When the cabin is available for booking, we are most likely not running retreat.
If the Log cabin is not available, it is possible to rent the "Seaview apartment" which is new and more modern than the Log cabin. https://www.airbnb.no/rooms/10274548
You will have access to all the facilities like sauna, yoga room, canoe, fireplace in the garden and just relax at this quiet place with a fantastic view to the sea and towards Bergen.

Andre ting å merke seg
In Norway you can only buy wine and liquor at special shops, so it is a good idea to buy at the airport if you are flying in from abroad. Beer you can buy in grocery stores before 20.00 on weekdays and 18.00 on Saturday.
Smoking is only allowed outdoor.
I am a yoga and meditation teacher and is running a Yogaschool in Bergen and a Retreat centre on Askøy together with my husband Bjarke.
We bought a property on Askøy in 1990 and have since then gradually built several buildings and developed a retreat center for yoga and meditation. Bjarke is a great carpenter and I am doing most of the work in the garden.
We are both vegetarians.
