This beautiful cottage provided my friend and I refuge from the terrible wind that occurred the first day we arrived. It was stormy and blowing all around us, and we were able to observe the beauty of the turbulent view from our safe little haven! The views from the cottage are spectacular! It is wonderful to be able to sit on a pretty white kitchen chair and observe the stunning sea (right below the cottage) with the mountains as a backdrop. As the weather in March can change very (and I mean very) quickly, the scenery outside the kitchen table windows was ever changing, but always stunning. When it would calm outside, I would step out onto the lower deck. One night, I even watched very faint aurora borealis laying on the picnic table- a brief walk below the deck. The bedrooms were very comfortable. I especially loved the bedroom upstairs as it uniquely shaped and warm, yet it felt somewhat adventuresome at the same time with the wind swirling around outside the first few nights. The upstairs also has a cozy living area with comfy couches, a great selection of DVD's and a wonderful covered deck. The last night I was there, I stood on that deck, protected from the elements and for hours watched the sky light up with surreal and captivating northern lights which was my main reason for visiting Iceland at this time of year. It was a soulful experience! The bathroom was spacious and equipped with blow dyer and washer/dryer. The kitchen was stocked with a microwave, stove, oven and refrigerator, and we cooked many nights in due to the inclement weather and remoteness of this area (even though it is still only about 40 minutes from downtown Reykjavik). Best of all, Jakob the owner was so responsive. If my friend or I had any questions (and we had many), we would call, text or email him and be met with a calm, amenable and patient presence. Thank you for everything Jakob. You feel like a friend. I hope the next time we come that you won't be stuck in a storm in the mountains! While we really enjoyed meeting helpful Gunnar (Jakob's business partner and the kind individual that navigated us to the cottage from Road 47), we would like to meet you in person too. I plan on staying here and at the other cottage in Hellnar the next time I come to Iceland with my husband, daughter and son. My parents also came in on the tail end of my trip and stayed at the cottage too. We had a great time together, and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves for a few days after I left.

Owner's Response: Dear Suzanne. Thank you so much for your kind review. You and your folks really tasted all kind of Icelandic winter weather and one of the biggest storm of the winter welcomed you when you arrived. I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay and are looking forward to meet you and your family when you come to Hellnar. Until then, take care. Best wises to your parents. The cottage was returned in perfect condition :-)

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5
Loved the cottage, it was beautifully decorated, well equipped and very cosy. It had an amazing picture-perfect view of the bay and not hard to get to at all. We wanted to be away from the city yet not too far and it provided a perfect compromise. Only drawback was the weather - really snowy so we didn't manage to do much exploring. Definitely hire a 4WD vehicle if you are out of the city, it was a lifesaver especially in bad weather.

A Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely comfortable and warm cottage with plenty of room and everything you need included. Great location (a little bit off the beaten track, so really peaceful and quiet) beautiful views, clean and comfortably furnished. We saw the Northern Lights two nights in a row just looking out of the big windows and we were able to simply wrap up warm and step out the door to get some great photographs - amazing. Iceland is a fascinating place to visit with lots to explore and I only wish we could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and the booking process was simple and straightforward. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and can't wait to go back!

'Great Cottage in Superb Location'

'Great Cottage in Superb Location'
  • 5 of 5
A big Thank You to Jakob and Gunnar for providing all the help and information we needed in making this a very pleasant holiday experience. Upon arrival we were made very welcome. We were amazed at the size of the cottage, the amenities provided and most of all the stunning location. All the little homely touches were very much appreciated and the TV/DVD area was especially enjoyed by our teenage son! We found the location superb, it's definitely worth staying here if you wish to take in the spectacular sights Iceland has to offer without too much hassle, the driving is easy and we covered a lot of ground during our stay. There is nothing we could find fault with and would highly recommend this property. Thanks again for a truly wonderful stay!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful cottage over Easter with our young family (5,3 and 2 years of age). It was perfect for us - stunning views, very peaceful, easy care with the children, and within reasonable driving distance of amenities and tourist destinations. Lots of thoughtful touches throughout the cottage like candles, warm throws and a great range of DVDs. The owners were incredibly easy to deal with throughout the booking process, and kind enough to come out to the cottage once we arrived to welcome us and show us how things worked. A lovely stay, thank you!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5
We booked this cottage after looking absolutely everywhere first weighing up every conseavable way of a trip to Iceland. We were not disappointed. We wanted somewhere not too far from Reykjavik but far enough away to avoid light pollution so we could hopefully see the Northern Lights, if we were lucky enough to get the weather.

This was perfect.

We were a party of five adults and the cottage accommodated us easily with comfort. The photos don't do it justice as it is exceptional and extremely cosy and warm. It's very well presented approximately 1/4 mile off the main road (probably 40 cars a day)

We were lucky to see the lights on two consecutive nights over three days and sitting at the dinner table with family eating home prepared food, drinking wine whilst listening to some chilled music and watching the lights was amazing.

If you are looking at properties such as this instead of groupon vouchers for city centre hotels that feature a night time bus journey with 40 others to see the lights... then you have found the place.
