My name is Erla Berglind and I am a classical singer. I am married and have 3 children and four grandchildren, 3 cats and five horses. I love to go to Borgarfjördur, stay in my cottage and go horse riding.
The cottage is comfortable, easy to reach and the location is great. This coming winter should be great opportunity to watch the northern lights because of increased activity in the surface of the sun.
In the wintertime it is great fun to go to the hot tub in the evening when the northern lights are dancing all around the cottage. And at the same time watch the beautiful stars in the sky.
We had such a delightful stay in this adorable cottage! ~ Erla was a wonderful host, even meeting us when we arrived and checking in on us via e-mail during our stay. ~ The location was perfect for seeing the Northern Lights (which we saw twice during our week there) - and for accessing all the major sights in West Iceland. ~ The cottage, itself, was simply adorable! The beds were very comfortable - and the living room, kitchen, and dining area provided just the right space we needed to relax and make ourselves "at home." ~ We also loved the many artistic touches throughout the house, giving it an artsy-feel. ~ The cottage is well-insulated and very soundly-built, which is ideal for those strong Icelandic winds! ~ Thank you, Erla, for a delightful and magical experience! We truly enjoyed our winter stay in your lovely cabin - and hope to return soon for a summer visit!
A well equipped house with good infrastructure. It was a perfect starting point for all of our activities (Pingvellir, Gulfoss, Reykjavik, Blue Lagoon, Akranes, Snefellsjökull, Horseriding) and near to Borgarnes with its manifold shopping facilities. We enjoyed our stay at this quiet place and the good view into the nature.
4 beautiful days with northern light, orcas and snow but not on the road
A nice house
We will come back
Hei Erla. Tusen takk for vårt opphold i din hytte.
Vi likte oss veldig bra og kan absolutt anbefale hytten til andre. Naturen rundt var vakker med store muligheter. GUNNAR
The property was ideal for our small group of friends and provided an excellent base for exploring Borgarfjordur and Snaefellsnes areas. We especially enjoyed the views from the house and the spacious living area. The location was very convenient, not too far off the main road, yet very quiet and rural. Erla was helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. We would certainly recommend a stay at Storaborg.
Storaborg is a very comfortable and generally well equipped property, beautifully presented and well looked after. It is clearly the owner's pride and joy
The house was generally very clean (except under the beds).
The beds were very comfortable, although they could benefit from additional pillows (2 per person) rather than just the one thin one, and double duvets for the double beds rather than 2 single duvets.
The bath towels were rather thin, and having only one per person for the week given the use of the hot pot was not sufficient.
The sliding shower door kept coming off its rail which was difficult, and could have been dangerous - my 11 year old had to be rescued standing in the shower holding one entire door. The children were instructed not to open one side, so it was a squeeze to get in to the shower avoiding the loo. The shower doors did not completely close, therefore more water went on the bathroom floor. We had the exact same problem with our curved quadrant shower cubicle at our house, so I understand this is a design problem, but you may want to get this fixed sooner rather than later.
Everything else was really good and we really enjoyed our stay.
The clothes airer in the bathroom was very helpful.
You may want to get instructions for the washing machine and hot pot translated into English, as well as Icelandic. We had trouble turning the hot pot off, until we turned the temperature right down - I hope this was the right thing to do.
We loved your decoration. My 3 year old son was very taken by the large lamp hanging in the sitting room above the coffee table, and christened your house the "Flower House". He keeps asking when he can go back to the Flower House.
The summerhouse is 93 sqm with 3 bedrooms. It´s new, built in 2007. Around the cottage is a terrace with a hot tub for 6 persons, a grill (gas) and garden furniture.
