Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time!

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities.

The property was warm, cosy,clean and well-maintained.

The owner provided good customer service,

We would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

We liked the silence, clean fresh air, beautiful skies, sunrise and sunset, sea, glacier,surroundings, black stones and coffee and warm apple-pie in the small coffeehouse.

We'll be back,

la maison parfaite !

  • of 5

Superbe maison, on a était agréablement surpris quand on a ouvert la porte! La décoration est tres chaleureuse, on a cru habiter chez quelqu'un! Il y avait une guitare, des livres, des dvd, des cd, pleins de plaids douillé etc.. on a vu des aurores boreal durant notre 1er nuit c'etait magique! On avait comme vu avant la mer avec ses levés et couchés de soleil et comme vu arriere la montagne. Ce lieu est tres paisible. Je pourrais en parler longtemps.. alors je n aurais que deux mots : je recommande! Ah oui seul petit bébole, le voisin de 2 maisons derriere qui gare sa voiture juste devant ta fenetre.. apar ca tout parfait!

Cozy and comfortable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and home base of Hellnar. The cottage was as described. Very comfortable and accommodating for our family of four. The mattresses are excellent. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with basics like olive oil, salt, pepper some spices, coffee, sugar etc. This makes cooking so much easier! The only caution I would give is that the stairs to the second floor a cross between a ladder and stairs. Not a problem for us but if you have mobility issues or toddlers, it might be hard to get to the second level where the bedrooms are.

There are a lot of things to do near Hellnar, so it is a good base to see the peninsula. There is also a very helpful information office just next door. You can learn quite a bit about the area there as well as get maps for hikes.

a real home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the bottom of Snaefelsjökull. Since the weather was not perfect for the first days, we really enjoyed this well and very nice equiped and furnished home with its CD collection, good books and a guitar! The small bay is beautiful, especially during evening hours, when day tourists are gone. Wonderful view over the sea and the mountain; good base for day trips. Thank you very much! We hope to come back one time. Barbara + Martin
