                          Beautiful views, lovely cottage, great location

                          5 of 5
                          Our family (three generations) stayed for a week in this cottage. The cottage itself has everything you could want: beautiful and spacious views, a large deck and relaxing hot tub, and well-appointed inside. We also were extremely happy with the location: it's a charming, fairly secluded area but the nearby village of Borgarnes has everything you could need (groceries, wine/beer store, gas) and a swimming pool that we all really enjoyed (it has everything from waterslides to a little kid splash area to relaxing hot tubs, all with great views of the ocean and landscape). And, we could easily reach other interesting places. For example, we did a great little day trip to see the Hraunfossar waterfall and bathe in the geothermal pools at the Hotel Husafell. The owners were very welcoming and helped make our stay there a great success.

                          Homely lodge in a stunning location

                          5 of 5
                          Nothing could have prepared us for just how beautiful Tvera and its surroundings are. The house looks out onto a crystal clear blue bay, dotted with tiny islands in front of rugged mountains and the succession of bays and cliffs we had driven along to get there – more on that drive later. Tvera has every home comfort and we were able to cook all our meals and take advantage of the trout farm just a few yards away, dining on fresh Arctic char followed by bilberries and crowberries picked from the hillside. We stayed three nights but didn’t travel far, we were content with short walks and just relaxing in our beautiful surroundings. The hot spring pool by the sea was amazing – . A far more relaxing and stunning location than the Blue Lagoon and it was free! We would thoroughly recommend staying at Tvera. Jon was a very thoughtful and welcoming host, providing us with lots of helpful information and a very well equipped Home. One thing we would do differently is to travel there by ferry. We travelled north from Bogarnes via the A1 and the A60. We can’t deny that the scenery along the A60 was some of the most dramatic and inspiring we have ever seen, but the roads were terrifying. Narrow unsurfaced tracks with steep clifftop drops. Our stomachs were in our mouths for what seemed like days, but was probably about four hours. Other drivers in 4x4s were more comfortable and we were overtaken many times when there was room. We were driving a ford galaxy and a Citroen Picasso, both heavily loaded with people and luggage. The first thing we did on arriving at Tvera was to book the ferry crossing to Stykkisholmun for our return journey. This took three hours and cut out all those scary roads. The A56 and A54 were a much easier drive Back to Bogarnes. The ferry was not too expensive. About 5400K for each car and each adult. Kids under 16 travel free and teenagers were half price. Money well spent if you have a fear of heights and want to keep a hire car away from unmade roads. We would definitely go again and stay a bit longer as there are lots of sights in the western fjords we have yet to visit.

                          Spectacular house in a breathtaking setting

                          5 of 5
                          Wow! We spent six days here and wished we could have spent another sixty. The house provides the perfect base camp from which to explore Western Iceland. The design of the house maximizes the magical Icelandic summer light with large and many windows, and minimizes the footprint of the house by almost seeming to merge with the surrounding landscape. You enter the house on a wooden walkway laid over a small ravine and the volcanic rocks (now covered in greenery from flowers to bushes to small birches and trees) surrounding it. It feels as if the house floats on top of nature. A large wooden deck surrounds the house (located east to West to maximize the light) and we found ourselves spending lots of time outside on the deck. You have access to an outdoor dining table with eight chairs and a couple of lounge chairs perfect for afternoon reading or napping or just taking in the scenery. Small bushes and trees surround the deck shielding it from the Icelandic wind without obstructing the wonderful views of the mountains, the sea in the background or the glacier way off in the distance. And it still gets plenty of light. The inside is laid out just as cleverly with the common areas in the middle (kitchen/dining/living area) and two bedrooms and an office located on opposite sides of the house for maximum privacy. We are a family of four and got all the together time we wanted/needed and yet had space to withdraw for quiet time/reading/napping. A perfect layout making the house feel a lot bigger than it is. It's stocked with everything that you could want. We did not go missing for anything. The shower area with its sauna and a window to the Icelandic landscape in the shower made for long and pleasant showers (we never ran out of water). There is a flat screen TV and a DVD player (even Apple TV) that proved perfect for watching the "Secret Life of Walter Mitty" with Ben Stiller. Seemed perfect given the setting and content. It was. The owners are wonderful - friendly, helpful, generous with their time and suggestions for what to do and/or how to get there - completing the experience. We had a magical six days in Iceland and left longing for when we will be back. We would recommend this house for anyone who is looking for a peaceful setting in spectacular nature ... far away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to a lot of incredible places and experiences in Western Iceland. Thank you!
