&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.
If you own 1/8 in a &Hamlet, you are guaranteed a minimum of 45 days of exclusive use of your property per year. This is approximately the same number of days that an average vacation home is used per year. The more shares you own, the more days you can use your &Hamlet.
If you make a reservation for a stay between 2 and 30 days in advance, the stay will not count towards the allocated 45 days per year per ownership. This means that you may be able to use your &Hamlet for more than 45 days per year.
Stays are scheduled through &Hamlet's own app, where you can view your reservations, make changes, or add new ones. Our customized system ensures a fair distribution of stays among the owners, guaranteeing that everyone can use the property during the peak season and at least one popular holiday period per year.
The reservation system allows you to book a stay up to two years in advance or as close as 48 hours before arrival. To ensure a fair distribution among the co-owners, it is possible to hold up to six reservations simultaneously at any given time. Each stay must last a minimum of two nights and can usually last a maximum of two weeks. There must be an equivalent number of days between two reservations and the first stay; for example, if you reserve a one-week stay, you must wait for one week before using your &Hamlet again. This is to ensure a fair distribution of access to &Hamlet for the owners throughout the year.
In the reservation system, we have defined a series of special dates based on Norwegian holidays, as well as a peak season determined by the property's location. To ensure a fair distribution of the most popular days, you can keep one reservation during a popular holiday or vacation period and three reservations during the peak season. There is also a limit on the number of stays allowed during holidays and peak seasons. The reservation system learns from the owners' usage patterns, adjusting the definition of the peak season for each unique &Hamlet, making the distribution even more equitable.
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.
