Wonderful home base for our day trips.

  • 5 of 5
This house was warm and cozy, well apportioned and appointed, and easy to settle into for our week in Iceland. If we are ever able to return to Iceland, we will try to stay there again. We made day trips to Thingvellir, the Sneafellsnes peninsular, and Reykjavik, and enjoyed the beach and coast nearby. We ate wonderfully well at Hafith Blaa near the inlet and the pizza place right around the corner from the house. There's a grocery store in town as well as gas stations. If we'd stayed longer we would have visited the pool and hot tub two blocks away. Stefan the owner was very kind and thoughtful, sent us information on nearby attractions before we came, met us at the house, and even had a lovely bowl of fruit on the table when we arrived. We had a wonderful time in Iceland and the house was the warm and welcoming centerpiece.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
We (family of 4) had the opportunity to rent the house for 3 months (sept -dec). Not only is the house of perfect size, with beautiful interior and great kitchen and cooking facility, but the garden and all surrounding is perfect. The property consists of the main house, garage and little playhouse for kids, all decorated in country style. The house is located 45 km outside of Reykjavik in a perfect little village (Thorlakshofn). There you'll find a great atmosphere, friendly people, perfect family swimming pool (with slides and inside facility for young children), supermarket, 2 nice restaurants and a super nice coffee shop/art gallery. From the house its 10 min walk to the beach, where you can spend hours (you will most probably see some surfers there), 15 min. walk to the golf course situated at the beach, 15 min. drive to nice area full of hot springs and hiking paths, 45 min. drive to the Blue Lagoon, 1 hour drive to the next glacier etc. You will most definitely see the northern lights at this time of the year.

Our 9 year old daughter attended the elementary school of Thorlakshofn and received very warm welcome from the staff and the children.

We would recommend this house and this village to everyone, friends or relatives.

Hlif, Stefan and the people of Thorlakshofn. Thank you for your hospitality and friendly atmosphere.

Fantastic holiday home!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place for your holiday. There is plenty of space in the house and also the garden is very nice. During the time that we were there the weather was excellent, so we have also spent some time enjoying the sun in the backyard. Something we did not expect as it was our first trip to Iceland. The house is very well maintained and clean. It is also charming. You can see that the owners have pride in this property. There is attention for every detail. It really feels like a home. The kitchen is great, especially the cooking-stove is amazing. When we are going to renovate our kitchen I know what type of stove we are going to look for!
The town itself is not special, although the peope are very friendly and you can do your shopping nearby, but you can do lot of sightseeing from Reykjavík to Vík and to places like Pingvellir, the waterfalls, etc. And also the smaller towns nearby are interesting. It is also worthwhile to make a tour in Reykjanes.
We have spent a fantastic week and we can definitely recommend this property. When we go back to Iceland we will certainly book this place again.

Perfect house to stay on vacation

  • 5 of 5
For me as a mathematician it is rare to say that something is really perfect. Always you can find something that bothers you a little bit... ... but this house really is the exceptional case!

The interior of the house is awesome, the owner provide a very good customer service (one example: Stefán came at 7am personally and gave us the key, because our flight was so early), the location of the house is super (5min walk to the next store and for accessing popular places of the South-West of Iceland it is a good starting point) and compared to other houses it is really, really cheap! Of course the house was clean and we did not have to clean after our stay (compared to other houses, where we had to wait up to 7 hours for the washing mashin to finish washing because we were 6 people...)

I could keep on to adore the house because of many other things, but I think it is already clear what I mean, when I say: It is perfect and I would recommend this property to everybody.

At our time in this house we visited the following places:
Reykjanes (e.g. Blue Lagoon), Golden Circle, Vestmannaeyjar (Heimaey) and Hvolsvöllur.

We wanted to visit also the volcano Hekla, Pórsmörk and Skógar, but our vacation time sadly was too short. What we could not recommend to you to visit is everything that is located beyond Vik, because it is too far away to drive bidirectional. What we could recommend to you is watching for the road signs "Tourist attraction" while driving through Iceland. You never know, what you will discover!

So far for my Review. I hope it will be usefull for somebody and I apologize for my bad English. Thanks a lot Hlíf and Stefán for providing such a great house and for giving us a really nice time in Iceland.

Best Regards

A beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We (couple) had a wonderful stay at the property. The house was very clean and very (!!!) comfortable. We liked the kitchen and the cooking facilities very much. (We would love to have an additional pan ;-) ) The owner gave us a very warm welcome so that we felt home just as we arrived.
The e-mail contact to the owner before our journey started was very nice, informative and helpful.
The village is a good starting point for trips to Reykjavik and into the east. We would recommend this property to a friend or a relative - it was gorgeous!
Thank you!
