the cottage was like our second home:)

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very nice, like a second home. Everything was there. Next the important things like kettle, towels,... also candles, napkin paper, hair dryer,.... We travelled with a 14 month old child and found a babybed, a little chair, a security door at the stairs.
The beautifull view over the Fjord and the mountain impressed us a lot!
We have seen twice northern lights. Amazing!
Thank you, Jakob, for the good communication (despite car breakdown and phone battery empty ;) ) It was nice to met you. Thanks also to your wife!

That's sure, Iceland, we will come back!!:)

Wir sind zu drei Erwachsenen und einem 14 monatigem Kind gereist. Das Haus war sauber, geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Es war wie Zuhause ankommen. Die Ausstattung war vollständiger als erwartet: Kerzen, Servietten, Shampoo und Duschgel, Tee,...
Für unser Baby war ein Babybett, ein Hochstuhl und ein Sicherheitsgitter an der Treppe vorhanden.
In zwei Nächten konnten wir Polarlichter beobachten. Unglaublich!
Der Aussicht aus dem Fenster ist absolut umwerfend! Der Blick auf dem Fjord und den Bergen...unbeschreiblich. Der Ausblick fehlt uns sehr:)
Der Vermieter Jakob ist an einem Abend vorbeigekommen und hat uns das Wichtigste erklärt. Die Kommunikation verlief sehr gut.

Island, wir werden nochmal kommen;)

Gemütlich

  • 4 of 5
Schönes Cottage, gemütlich eingerichtet, alles was man braucht ist vorhanden, super sauber, alles sehr gepflegt. 40 Minuten bis Reykjavik Stadtzentrum, schöne Umgebung am Hvalfjördur, speziell auch die Wanderung zum Glymur Foss am Ende des Fjordes.
Ideal für Leute die nicht in der Stadt wohnen wollen, diese aber in der Nähe haben möchten.
Danke an unseren Vermieter, der alles bestens vorbereitet hat und uns auch noch kurz besucht hat.

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!
