About Heidrun

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 2008

Why Heidrun chose West Iceland

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Architecture, 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...

Cozy and Romantic weekend away in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I am pleased with the homeaway app that downloaded everything necessary, even the internet passcode, for use "offline". Otherwise, it might be quiet on our end. I am so glad to check in and say we are incredibly pleased and impressed.

I help design and build hotels, and someday I can only hope that we have the opportunity to build something so intimate and absolutely perfect. The house is gorgeous, and the fact that they share it is appreciated. It's almost surreal how isolated and lonely it is this time of year, which is so perfect for my wife and I! We just love this cozy and comfortable feeling. They have built a wonderful spot, and we were thrilled. You will absolutely enjoy this!

There's plenty of movies, and easy bluetooth docking station, plenty of kitchen things but make sure to bring your own condiments, etc. We didn't find ice, but the compacted snow fit nicely for my drinks! =) The hot tub was wonderful and the overall experience delightful.

Thank you for your hospitality!

A refreshingly modern home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our trip wouldn't have been the same without our stay here. The owners are very helpful and regularly checked in on us and our stay and provided lots of information and updates (even regarding the weather!). The house itself is a beautiful modern building which is much bigger than the pictures look. The bed in the master bedroom is the comfiest bed I have ever lay in and the north facing window is perfect for watching the aurora dancing as you fall asleep. There is a great homely feeling to the house equipped with all the latest kitchen appliances and a very impressive sound system. The house is only a 20 minute drive from Borgarness and is perfectly isolated for those who just want time to relax in the hot tub after a long day. This rental made our trip and I would challenge anybody to find a better base for double the price of this place. I would like to thank Heidi and her husband for sharing this gem with us.

A luxurious and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a truly spectacular landscape which is both peaceful and tranquil. Every modern convenience was provided in a fantastic family-oriented layout within a very well designed, modern building. The nearest town 10 mins drive away has everything you need including a great (and cheap) swimming pool with inclusive access to no less than 3 geothermal hot-tubs and a steam room !

My family really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to experience Iceland.It was clean, well maintained and the internet access was exceptional!

Many thanks Robert and Heidrun for a fantastic stay. We will return :-)

We booked this property many months before we traveled. Communication with the owners - Heidrun and Robert at all times before, during and post our stay was excellent.

great and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

After two weeks in the highlands with a 4x4 camper this house was the pure luxury. You will find there everything you need for a pleasant stay.

We are a family with 3 children and the house was perfect for us. It was spacious and clean.

The owners, Heidi and Rob, were very helpful all the time.

Thanks for a great residence.

Hardi & familiy

Unique location to start your Icelandic discovery

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled for several years [with and without child(ren)] we can only endorse all the positive comments made already here.

During our 2nd stay in Iceland, we were happy to call Helluskogur our "Icelandic home" for 2 weeks. Not only its unique location (with a waterfall and the impressive Langá so near), but also the home decor was simply overwhelming.

The house has an open character and is built smart so that landscape, weather and light can be enjoyed day and night. Inside, all equipment is of very high quality and nicely organized, including some great toys for the kids, art and literature.

From here, even with young children who don't allow to make long distance trips, you can discover West-Iceland's nicest natural beauties and at the same time remain connected with the city of Reykjavik. A beautiful map of Iceland on one of the inner-walls inside allows to start dreaming about great trips one can make in Iceland. But this house is definitely one of the best places to start an IS-discovery.

Rob and Heidi, you have been amazing hosts for us. Thanks so much for your hospitality and good luck with all your activities.

Kindest regards from

Anna-Julia, Myrthe, Kristin & Dirk (Brussels - BE)

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.
