Your hosts, Joachim & Torvald!

Your hosts, Joachim & Torvald!

Outgoing, but down to earth guys. Love to travel, arrange dinners and other social get-together’s for friends and family. Besides that we’re very casual, tolerant and we enjoy meeting new people from around the globe to exchange experiences with.

When we’re traveling outside of Norway, we’re interested in the architecture of the city, the city life and meeting locals. Within Norway we’ll prefer to travel where the nature is raw and untouched, whether or not it is in our local areas or not. Vienna is Joachim’s favorite place in Europe and Lyngen is closest to his heart in Norway. Torvald is from Skjåk, which is on the valley “Gudbrandsdalen”.

At the time Joachim is doing a Master degree in Computer Science at the University of Tromsø, and are hoping to graduate in june 2018. Torvald is planning to start his studies in 2016.

Our motto is (in Norwegian): “Etter nedtur kommer opptur”, which means «After a downturn comes an upturn».

Hope you’ll enjoy your stay,
Joachim and Torvald:)

Joachim and Torvald were just awesome, they organised a pick up and drop off at the airport for me, cooked me a delicious dinner twice during my stay, walked me around town when I arrived to orient me, gave me great suggestions and the room and house were perfect and luxurious. This was the best airbnb I have ever stayed in and I’ve stayed in quite a few. These guys totally deserve their superhost status. They really made my stay in tromso wonderful.

Joachim and Torvald are very nice and responsive hosts, their home is walking distance to the city center. The room is clean and spacious. Would recommend to others visiting this very part of Norway.

This is by far our best airbnb experience! We are simply grateful to have met Joachim and Torvald through airbnb as they are not only the best hosts but also fun, social and amazing people! They went beyond their duty to pick us up and drop us off from the airport, made norweigian fish dinner and even shared their games with us which was a lot of fun! (more…)

Great house, we loved it. Our hosts Joachim and Torvald looked after us fantastically. Close to the city, shopping and pickup locations for tours. Joachim and Torvald where always quick to answer any queries.

Angela

We had a great time staying in Tromso at this spacious and well decorated apartment. It was just a short walk to city center with a great view from the hillside. The small details made the stay all the better with keyless entry and a great coffee machine to get you through the short winter days. Would recommend for anyone venturing into this great Arctic Circle town.

We were a party of 3 and stayed in Joachim And Torvald’s house for 4 nights. We love their house which is quiet, spacious and stylishly furnished. It has a beautiful kitchen which is well equipped and stocked with condiments like fresh coffee beans. We love the Jura coffee machine! (more…)

I had an absolutely marvelous stay at Joachim and Torvald’s place! They are delightful hosts who are outgoing and go the extra mile but also gave me plenty of privacy. The house is immaculate and within walking distance of downtown and public transportation. Kitchen is well equipped and I must repeat what another reviewer said, their coffee maker is the best I’ve ever seen. My only regret is running out of time to buy promised drinks for these guys 🙂 I would stay here again in a second and would give more than 5 stars if I could!

Madison

Joachim and Torvald excellent hostes, now I understand the meaning of the “super host” award, they really deserve it! We are very greatful for all the help and tips they gave us. Joachim even helped us to make a reservation in a restaurant and one of the evenings they cooked a typical Norway meal for us. This is the kind of details they have to their guests, they know the meaning of be a foreigner in a new city and makes you feel welcome and home! (more…)

The hosts and the house are both amazing! We stayed in Tromsø for 5 nights and Joachim and Torvald made it really comfy for us. They arranged pick up from the airport and made our arrival super easy to the house. They explained every thing in be house in detail and the house is just impeccable! One of the best places I have stayed in! It’s way better than a hotel any day! Thanks heaps for a great stay guys 😉

What a beautiful house and the hospitality that the host gave was impeccable. They offered to meet us at the airport to get us there and even reserved us transportation back when we left. Could not have asked for better hosts! Thank you so much!

We had a blast in Tromsø and can easily recommend this as a place to spend the weekend. Its location is perfect close to the city centre and we loved the facilities. Joachim and Torvald are both easy to communicate with and answer questions promtly. Highly recommended.

The location: Joachim and Torvald’s house is so well located, just 5 mins walk from city center, while the neighborhood is peaceful and quite. There is also a bus station nearby that you could take a bus from/to the airport. The house: it is just as shown on those pictures, clean, spacious, bright and stylish. The guest room was cozy and private with a bathroom. The host: (more…)

Joachim & Torvald are well deserving of their superhost title; this was easily my best stay in any Airbnb ever. Checking in, cleanliness, communication, etc. were all spot on. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend them and their place to anyone. My favorite part of my stay was drinking coffee while watching the auroras from their balcony. :)))

Dan

We cannot speak highly enough of the comfort, class, and style of Joachim & Torvald’s place in the beautiful north of Norway. The hosts are proper, from a thoroughly organized welcome book, to quality furnishings and comforts throughout the house. I made a fantastic quiche in their kitchen, but sadly they were not there to share! 😉 Truly a wonderful experience to celebrate Paul’s and my engagement!

We enjoyed a lot this charming and comfortable house. It was great being able to enjoy the piano, balcony, and the large space in the living room. Excellent beds. Nice bathrooms. Joachim and Torvald have been super nice and helpful doing their very best to make our stay easy. Highly recommended !!!

Laurent

This is a brilliant and spacious place to stay just five minutes walk from the centre of Tromso. Fancy a sauna after a day exploring? Not a problem. Just a jacuzzi bath? Covered. Eat in kitchen and massive lounge means you’re not falling over each other. Joachim was there to greet us, really helpful, and left us detailed guides to every appliance! This is Joachim’s home not a purpose rental so it’s equipped and furnished to a higher standard than you might expect – you get to stay when he’s going away.

David

Joachim is a wonderful host. He is highly organized and extremely accommodating. He will go out of his way to make sure that your stay is perfect. His apartment is very comfortable and even better than it looks in the pictures. We can’t say enough good things about our stay.

Beth

Beth

It was our first airbnb experience and we were very lucky to make a great start with Joachim’s beautiful house. The house was very relaxing, well equipped and nicely decorated, so we spent more time inside the house than we planned 🙂 I can say that the house is even nicer than seen in the pictures. The city center is only 10-15 minutes walking distance and it is a nice walk in a plesant neighbourhood. (more…)

I had the most amazing experience from the moment I arrived to the last day of my stay in Norway ,Joachim personally collected me from the airport , he showed me everything in details from how to buy a bus ticket to how to use the washing machine in the flat. He also gave me lots of information and tips on local activity tours and the northern lights prior to my visit ,His home is absolutely spotless and beautifully decorated in a lovely neighbourhood Close to Tromsø central .I instantly felt welcomed in the flat by his warm,unique ,genuine and hospitable personality .

Highly recommended!! Our first Airbnb experience could not have been any better as Joachim is the perfect host! Everything was well prepared in advance, he was welcoming us to show around, the apartment is super equipped and organized, spotlessly clean, prettier than the photos and spacious 🙂 Even if Joachim was not there, you could feel his touch, fine taste and care behind every little thing in the house, just as if you were at your best friends home or your own house.

Joachim made us feel very welcome in Tromso with responsive communications prior to arrival. Despite leaving town, he met us at the airport. The apartment was incredibly nice… photos are very accurate as the place is cozy and has a sense of luxury too. Despite icy conditions, the house is a short and easy walk to downtown Tromso

Joachim is a very great host! He is not in town but he assist in all means during my stay and after I travelled to Sweden too! The house is amazing! Clean, tidy and am exact what you see in photos. I highly recommend anyone of you to stay here!!! You will have a great experience!!!

Sharon

Joachim was really a great host. We went to Tromsø by bus from Narvik and he offered to pick us up at the bus station under the very cold weather with snow. It solved one of the problems regarding to delivery of our very heavy luggage. Really thank you so much. In addition, Joachim prepared a very detailed briefing about the house and provide the guide book (self-made) regarding to the use of electrical appliance (i.e. coffee machine, washing machine) and location of the supermarket/good restaurant/sightseeing/bus stop. (more…)

Eric

Joachim was a world class host. Not only from making sure we had everything setup for our trip correctly, but also providing us hints and tips about the city. Even though we didn’t get to meet him I can tell he is a stand up guy. The house is beautiful and if I had to do it all over again I would stay there in a heartbeat !

Greg

Greg

Though Joachim was away for the three days we stayed, he went to great lengths to make our arrival and stay as easy and welcoming as possible. I wouldn’t be able to find fault with anything. His apartment was extremely quiet, cosy and beautifully furnished. We both felt his extreme generosity of spirit (even from a distance!)

Brigdet

Brigdet

Our hosts were incredibly welcoming. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had a comfortable stay and also to make sure that we had no issues when visiting Tromso. They even booked us a cab the day we left. The apartment is even nicer than the photos show and is extremely comfortable. The hosts obviously have great taste, judging by how well decorated the apartment is. The apartment is very well located only a few minutes walk to the centre of town. We loved our stay here and I couldn’t speak more highly of how nice the apartment is and how good our hosts were to us.

Matthew

Matthew

Locating and arriving to an unfamiliar destination in a foreign country without knowing the language is stressful. Joachim met us at the airport holding a welcome placard during a snowstorm. Our stay was welcoming and carefree from the beginning. By providing maps and tourist opportunities and directions to markets and shops, Joachim ensured we focussed more on our enjoyment, rather than getting lost. Our host graciously prepared a wonderful cuisine one night and brought us to his favorite social spot. It was exactly what we were looking for. (more…)

That’s was the most amazing experience we have ever had! Guys were so welcoming and helpful. The house was spacious and very clean. We were using kitchen and living room at our own convenience. We very much enjoyed our stay. Guys we fantastic hosts!!! Great location, 5 min walk to the center, fantastic view! Very convenient location if you are planning to take trips for any activities (just 5-10 min walk to pick up locations). If we ever plan to take trip to Tromso again ( and yes, we are planning 😉 ) we will definitely make reservation with Joachim and Tobias again! Thank you very much for your hospitality. 6 stars!!! 🙂
