About Robert and Heidrun

I work as a teacher and I have a BA degree in Icelandic literature. My husband Robert works as a Pilot in Europe. We´ve got two little boys.

We built our beautiful house during the last five years and lived in it the past two years so it includes everything we need.

Heidrun purchased this cottage in 2012

We wanted to build a nice holiday home where we could relax and recharge the batteries.. and that´s precisely what we succeeded. Also the short distance to Borgarnes (swimming pool, gym and everything else) and to the Capital, Reykjavík.

Arcitecture, High standard and Peacefulness, you walk around the house on the large patio and enjoy the amazing mountain view in the peaceful surroundings, with no sound except for the sound from the small birds and a distance sound from the Langá river...

VERY RECOMMENDABLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house is fantastic - modern and openly. Through the big windows you have a very good view about the closer surrounding. The photos are really realistic.
Our expectations were more than fulfilled.
Heidrun and Robert are very good hosts. Everything was clean and well prepared for us. We felt in good hands - almost like „at home“
We stayed there two weeks. A good starting point for day tours in all directions of Iceland.
In spite of rain we visited Pingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss, Snaefellsjökull, Reykjavik …and saw a lot of fascinated landscapes.
In Borganes you find some supermarkets, filling stations for all things you need for your stay.
with kind regards from Berlin / Germany

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This house provides a wonderful base to stay and to discover West Iceland. 3 bedrooms with ample space, a huge living-and kitchen-area with stunning views of Icelandic landscape.
All facilities are of highest quality and it´s obivious that a lot of brains went into the building and its location.
The description and information provided by the managers were outstanding. Heiðrun and Robert were anytime ready to assist or to suggest activities.

The city of Borgarnes provides all supermarket needs and also a beautiful museum, restaurant and public pool with hot pots. Within an hour driving are way more attractions and places to see than anyone can handle in one week.
However, this property makes it very hard to leave at all.

ABSOLUTELY AMAYZING!!

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic house. The location was so great, no highway and no sound except from the nature itself. This house is magical and has everything you need (and more). The kitchen is very spacious and good facility to cook and we saved a lot of money on resturant bills.

The owner was very helpful and told us all about where to go and what to see. Also very good information about how evrything works and funktions in the house.

Thanks Heidrun og Robert for a absalutely wonderful stay. The only negative thing about it all was that we did not realize how fantastic the house and the place was until we arrived so, we didn´t stay long enough.

One thing we want to mention is the price. We have staid on the south coast near the Golden Circle in many sommerhouses. Compairing the price and the standard, this house exceeded our expactations and also more than pleanty of attractions to visit on the west coast. Reykholt, Stykkisholmur, Borgarnes, Akranes and only one hour to Reykjavik. We visited the fantastic swimming pool in Borgarnes every day and it was even open early in the morning until ten o´clock in the evening. It was so, so nice and relaxing.

Everything was perfect, clean and well organised.

We are allready planning to come back next fall.

.. and thanks Robert, for the late phone call to remind us, to look up in the sky for the Northern lights, it was magical.

Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic... !!!!

PERFECT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 wonderful days in the house In the summer of 2013. The house is fantastic. It is very architectural and harmonieses well in the forrest and with the surroundings.

The property was clean and included brand new equipment and WIFI and everything works (the Kitchenaid coffee maschine makes the best coffee in the world). We made a trip to Reykjavik and were only about 1 hour on the way in a beautiful sceenary via Borgarnes and Akranes.

Every day we went to the Swimming pool in Borgarnes and I miss it..

In Borgarnes we found all the necessaries including Bonus grocary store. The national park of Snaefellsnes is a “must visit”.

We where having difficulties leaving the comfort of the house. If the weather permitts, we recommend outdoor dining and barbecueing. It´s very convenient for three couples and the shape of the house and outlet gives each one privacy.

The kitchen and the living room is perfect for gatherings and dining with big worktop to cook and everyone can participate.

The furnitures are cosy and just to hang out and just do nothing. During the evenings we went out walking in the area with great paths in all directions and along the river which is unforgettable.

We can all recommend this house 100% and and it did not disappoint us. Exploring the West of Iceland, the location is perfect. At least 5 days is a minimum, just away from the city. If Robert and Heidrun continue to rent it out, we are definitely coming back and spending at least one week.

Only 45 min driving on to the Golden Circle to view the great Gullfoss and the hot spring Geysir. Also on the Golden Circle you will find the historical place Thingvellir (Þingvellir):

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is also home to Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

Parliament or Alþingi was established at Þingvellir in 930 and remained there until 1798. Þingvellir National Park was founded in 1930 to protect the remains of the parliament site and was later expanded to protect natural phenomena in the surrounding area. Þingvellir National Park was the first national park in Iceland and was decreed 'a protected national shrine for all Icelanders, the perpetual property of the Icelandic nation under the preservation of parliament, never to be sold or mortgaged.'

The house is located sidelong the spectacular salmon river Langá, one of the greatest salmon rivers in Europe.

Fantastic walking paths from the house, where you can enjoy the peaceful nature.

The house is a one hour drive north from the Reykjavík Capital and 10 minutes from Borgarnes. In Borgarnes you can go to one of the nicest swimming pools in Iceland, play golf at Hamarsvöllur, visit the great Settlement center where you can learn about the Icelandic culture and saga, go to the pub and shop at the cheap Bonus grocery store.

In the north direction, about 50 minutes driving, you will find the old fishermen´s town Stykkishólmur, where you can go sailing, Whale Watching and enjoy bird watching paradise.

Close to Stykkishòlmur, you'll find the great Snæfellsnes National Park. It is was voted one of **Iceland Top Five** to visit. There you can enjoy Snæfellsjökull, and it's magical and remarkable nature.

You can say about the location of the house that it is midway between the two great National Parks, Snæfellsnes and Thingvellir National Park and only one our from our Capital, Reykjavik.
