About Adda & Sigurjón
Our names are Adda and Sigurjón. We are from a little town called Akranes, not far away from the cottage. The land our cottage is build on has belonged to Sigurjón's family for generations so we have always had strong ties towards this beautiful place.
Adda & Sigurjón purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Adda & Sigurjón chose Hvalfjarðarsveit
Sigurjón's Aunt and her husband build a little shed where the cottage is now and started to plant trees all around it. The trees are now tall and pretty, giving precious shelter from winds. As the time passed, previous owners were unable to visit their little piece of land, and in 1986, they passed it on to us, as we were looking for a place to build a little summerhouse for our family. Right away we started building an extension to the shed and through the years we have extended and improved our cottage. But still you can see a part of the original little shed in the living room and kitchen area.

Idyllic Retreat in Iceland

A wonderful base for our vacation
This was a peaceful retreat at the end of busy days. The hosts were very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed the calm atmosphere in our cottage.
We loved our stay here. The hosts were very nice, going out of their way to give us a tour. The cabin is next to their house but it feels really private and the views are spectacular. I hope to make it back one day and will absolutely stay here again!
Thank you very much for this lovely review and we would of course love to have you back!
This little cottage is a tiny bit of heaven. So peaceful and relaxing with views all day long - no matter the weather. Room for 5 people, comfy beds, complete kitchen, everything is ideal. The only fault was we couldn’t stay longer!
Thank you for visiting our little cottage, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay!
