Welcome to our luxury summer house on 93 m2 or 1001 ft2 located near the wonderful Borgarnes village.

The summer house is newly built in 2007 and has 3 bedrooms. In two rooms are double beds and in one is a full size bunk bed. We also have portable bed for a child. 6 people can easily guest in the house. The living room has a large couch, modern facilities and furniture. It is directly connected to the dining area and the kitchen.

The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, freezer, baking oven, dishwasher, stove, micro wave and other equipment. In the bathroom is a toilet, shower and washing machine.

On the patio there is a gas grill, garden furniture and a hot tub.

The house is not far from amazing 'must see“ places such as Snæfellsnes national park, It was voted one of **Iceland Top Five** to visit. There you can enjoy the glacier Snæfellsjökull, and it's magical and remarkable 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 grocary store.

Stykkishólmur is about 60 minutes drive, there you can go sailing, Whale Whatching and enjoy bird whatching paradise.

It is only 60 min driving on to the Golden Circle to veiw the great Gullfoss and the hot spring Geysir. Also on the Golden Circle you will find the hystorical place Thingvellir (Þingvellir):

The location of the house is exelant, if you are goint to the north Akureyri and it is midway between the two great National Parks, Snæfellsnes and Thingvellir National Park and only one our from our Capital, Reykjavik.

Reykjavík Center Laugarvegur is only 60 min driving

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.

CHARMING HOUSE WITH LOVELY VIEWS ALL AROUND

  • 5 of 5
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.

A COMFORTABLE & WELL EQUIPPED SUMMERHOUSE

A comfortable & well equipped summerhouse
  • 4 of 5
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.

Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We will consider your criticism. It is not a custom in Iceland to have a double duvets perhaps because we Icelandic woman won´t shear our duvet with another person. He he

GREAT STAY AT A GREAT HOUSE IN SOUTHWEST ICELAND

  • 5 of 5
We just returned to the states from a wonderful weeklong stay in Iceland. We were very fortunate to have stayed at the "red house" for 3 days to explore southwest Iceland. It's a great home, well equipped and well maintained. The views surrounding the house were awesome. We were traveling with our 1 year old granddaughter and had no problems as there was a crib and high chair provided for us.The location was great as there was ample things to see and do as a daytrip.The owners ,Erla and Bjorn, were very friendly and accomodating. If I were to return to Iceland, I would certainly stay here again as we loved the area. If you are traveling in this part of Iceland, I would recommend staying here as the house exceeds expectations.
