This is a big house in a quiet place of lofoten and you have to use the car to reach it. There are two shared bathrooms and the staff is not in the house but you can call them over the phone. There is a big garden with forniture and barbecue

Lovely shared house, a bit out of the normal touristy path (which is always good), but easy to find. Very friendly managers, it is clean and well-maintained. Facilities (bathrooms and kitchen) are very good, one of the best I've experienced considering the price. The views from the rooms in the house are incredible, overall a very very good decision to stay here if you travel solo, with friends, as a couple, but a little less if you have (small) children.

Beautiful shared house in a very nice part of Lofoten. Clean, cosy and quiet. Very friendly and professional managers. We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed the peace and laid back atmosphere between dives with Lofoten Diving (next door, same managers).

Big shared Kitchen (self-serviced), two shared bathrooms. No staff in the house, but they are always avalable by phone. Garden with furniture and barbecue.

We arrived quite late so arranged late check in & were at first a little confused as to where we would be getting the front door key from, but figured it out once there. It is essentially a shared house & there's no reception in the house, but someone can be contacted & during business hours there may be someone in the diving hut next door. We appreciated the flexibility for arriving quite late. Our room had a little balcony overlooking the fjord so it was probably their nicest room. The common living spaces (kitchen, dining and living room) are all very nice, clean and modern. It's a nice location, but then again you can't really go wrong anywhere in Lofoten outside of the larger towns. Speaking of which, for shops and a selection of restaurants/cafes, Leknes is only 10-15mins away by car.

The first night the house was quite full & as there is only one shared bathroom it was difficult to get a chance to use it (same in the morning). We didn't use the kitchen but I can imagine it would have been the same. As it's a shared house there's quite a social aspect to it, you'll most likely meet & chat with everyone else in the house. The first night there was quite a bit of noise as there's not a lot of sound insulation between the rooms, but the 2nd night the other guests were more respectful. Given the expense of many accommodations in the southern Lofoten towns, this was good value in comparison.

There are so many positive attributes about Villa Ballstad. First, the location is near perfect. A quiet, side street and the house overlooks the harbor with lots of open space around. I have not seen a more quiet, beautiful setting for a B&B. Second, the managers are very nice, professional young folks who take care of their customers well, and keep the place clean. Third, the house is well constructed, the rooms and living area and kitchen well done and a pleasure to use.

The only complaint (which is very minor when looking at the qualities of this place) is that with a full house (the house has 5 rooms) it can get noisy and a bit over crowded. I think a more ideal situation would be if the owner limited rentals to 3 parties (rooms). But, we stayed there 3 nights and enjoyed it immensely; and recommend it highly to anyone who appreciates a beautiful location, tasteful accomodations, and reasonable price.
