MELISHOME its a basic private house with simple rooms, where you can enjoy of the place and surroundings like sommarøy ( one of the most popular places to visit in Tromsø). From home, from your window you can see the frozen sea and northern lights in winter. And in summer you can appreciate the nature life and the mid-night sun. KEYS At the moment there is no keys and all doors are open except a couple of them where I keep my privates things ( In longs terms we can fix a locker in your room). I am still thinking the best safe way to lock the doors. RECEPTION There is not reception or frontdesk, as I said it's just a simple home, old prefabricated one with Scandinavian design. SIGNS There is no sign in the main road, it's a private home and I would love to keep my privacy, hope it's understandable. Address: Synnovfjordvegen 84 CHECKING & CHECKOUT The check in, between 15 pm til 12 am. Please let me know one day in advance what time aprox. you think you will be and also please inform me if is anything. I am alone, there is no other service, and I need to organize my time, hope it's understandable too. I am very flexible with the timings. Check out at 12 pm. SHUTTLE SERVICE & TOURS I do shuttle service and tours in daylight and at night for hunting northern lights. Don't doubt to ask me in case you are interested. Volunteering I have a room for a little help. Contact me.
Hello! I am a Spanish man from Barcelona that would love to meet people from around the world, show you the amazing Norway and what’s around Tromsø and share experiences with anyone! You are more than welcome to visit Me and spend time with me and my wolf's dogs, an Alaskan malamute and huskies, who love to meet new people too and live any new experience in the Artic life! Best, Jhon
THE AREA There is a beach front home, where to swim or to have a walk. Up in the mountains are lovely lakes with amazing views. Nice waterfalls from half km walk. The fauna it's super rich, you can see whales, dolphins, orcas, eagles, reeinders, elks, seals... Where home is, it's a little part, separated from big land, where was residing workers to build a Win Park up in the mountains. One of the biggest win parks of northern Norway, in case you are interested in renovables energy you can have a visit. The project finished 2 years ago. Now, it's cleaning up to make forest, little by little maybe and hopefully I can make nice cabins.
