Fair access to
the dates that
matters to you
&Hamlet´s scheduling system assures fair and easy access throughout the year for all owners. Each 1/8 ownershare is guaranteed at least 45 days per year, which is the same as a holiday home is already used on average. You will be guaranteed at least one of the popular holidays, and can book from two days up to two years in advance. Should there be available days during the next 30 days, all owners are free to schedule as they please; without the stay counting towards their 45 days.
Holiday homes remain empty for over 300 days annually, causing environmental harm, reducing wild nature, and impacting local economies. Despite this, many dream of ownership, but owners experience financial burdens and spend vacation time on maintenance and cleaning.
Owning a full holiday home with such limited use is difficult to justify.

Questions and answers
&Hamlet empowers you to buy, own, and enjoy your dream holiday home at a fraction of the cost, while we take care of everything with maintenance and cleaning, and assure fair distribution of use for all owners. &Hamlet brings trust in shared ownership to the holiday home market.
&Hamlet is a Norwegian company that was started after we realized how unsustainable it is to have a huge number of cabins and holiday homes sitting empty for more than 300 days of the year, all while many people dream of owning a holiday home, and more and more nature is built out.
&Hamlet is partially owned and supported by Askeladden & Co, which is behind companies such as DrDropin, Cutters, and Squeeze.
As an owner of a &Hamlet, you have exclusive use of the entire home during your stays. Each share has exclusive use for at least 45 days per year. Every &Hamlet has a contemporary and exclusive design, and comes fully furnished and with all amenities.
The price you see includes the 100% complete home with everything. You basically just have to bring your toothbrush.
The difference from owning the entire home yourself is that when you are not using the home, the other owners will have access to it. This, of course, means that both the purchase price and the monthly operating costs are much lower. Co-ownership empowers you to make your cabin dream possible.
&Hamlet takes care of all maintenance and cleaning, so all you need to think about is enjoying your stay.
Owning any property incurs costs while you own it. Few people realize how much they actually spend on electricity, insurance, maintenance, TV, snow removal, municipal fees, and everything else. For a holiday home, all of these costs must also be paid when it is not in use.
By owning a &Hamlet, the costs are shared among several owners, making it cheaper to own a holiday home. In fact, you pay less in ownership expences through &Hamlet than if you own an entire vacation home at the same price as the ownershare. This applies even when &Hamlet's additional services are added.
At any given time, you can book a stay up to 24 months in advance. In the &Hamlet app, you will see which days are available, and you can easily book your preferred dates.
Each ownershare has the right to use the &Hamlet for 45 days per year, and a reservation will then count towards the number of yearly days. A stay must be a minimum of 2 nights, and there must be an equal number of days between two reservations as the first stay lasts. It is possible to hold up to 6 reservations simultaneously.
To ensure that all owners can use &Hamlet during holidays and peak seasons, you are guaranteed that one of the six reservations is during a popular holiday. (Such a stay must be a minimum of 3 days), and three reservations are during the peak season. The system takes into account Norwegian holidays and peak season for the specific destination.
If you book a stay at "Short Notice Stay" (within the next 30 days), these days will not count towards the 45 you have available per share. Therefore it is actually possible to use your &Hamlet more than the 45 days per share per year. The entire system is designed to give a fair distribution the &Hamlet owners and to allow for short notice reservations.
The maximum length of one stay depends on how many shares you own:1 share = 2 weeks, 2 shares = 3 weeks, 3 shares = 4 weeks, 4 shares = 5 weeks
Any &Hamlet owner can sell their ownershare(s) whenever they want, just like selling an entire property. You set the price yourself and can use your preferred real estate agent or &Hamlet's marketplace to attract potential buyers.
As with the sale of a regular property, you can set the price however you want. Naturally, we can advise you on what the market value is.
A &Hamlet is in use much more than a typical holiday home. Cabins in Norway sit empty on average for over 300 days a year and are therefore only used 10-15% of the time, while a &Hamlet is typically used 80-90% of the time. This means that much more money is spent in the local community, thus benefiting the local economy.
&Hamlet organizes the operation and maintenance of all properties, and engages local companies in the work. &Hamlet contributes to more jobs and more income for the local business in the community.
When we use the holiday homes we already have more, emissions and reduction of wild nature is significantly reduced, while more people can fulfill their dream of owning a great holiday home.
