Description

Ocean Front Row View- Northern lights cottage- NO 1.

You are in a National Park area- This is the most beautiful part of Iceland -With its glistening white cone visible from Reykjavík on a clear day, Snæfellsjökull is the most potent and enduring symbol of Snæfellsnes. If the glacier weren't there, however, the manifold wonders of Snæfellsnes would stand out just the same. Snæfellsjökull, (1,446 m) an ancient cone volcano, one of finest mountains in Iceland. An impressive sight from as far away as Reykjavík, from where it can be seen in clear weather, seeming to rise from the sea. Many prehistoric eruptions took place in the glacier-covered crater at its peak, and its slopes are covered with lava. The glacier is fairly easy to climb, about 4-6 hours to the highest peak, Þúfur. At the eastern base is a Tourist Association hut, now in ruins. The glacier dominates the area, the western part of which is covered with lava and known as “under the glacier”. In Jules Verne’s novel, A Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

Outstanding and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at this spotlessly clean cottage. It is all new with an open floor plan downstairs with many windows to let in the views and light and bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed as well as comfortable beds and good black out shades in case one is traveling during the summer months. The cottage is located very near to the national park and easy access to the glacier. Many trails and hiking are available as well as horseback riding. The landscape is dramatic but is only about 2 hours from Reykjavik. Every morning we awoke to see the glacier covered mountain and hear the birds singing in the grass; the crashing of the waves on the rugged shoreline and the full moon lulled us to sleep or the winds in the eves pass over you in this cozy location. There is a small cafe nearby with reasonable prices but it is best to bring food for cooking larger meals. At times, horses or sheep may wander by to say hello. A great getaway and interesting. In winter because of the lack of ambient light, norther lights can be seen here. The town has about 10 permanent residents in winter so it feels remote, but the cottage and location make it very convenient.

Cozy cottage and lovely town

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect and more than enough room for myself, my husband and our two children. Do not let the outside of the house fool you. It is very roomy. The views and nature surrounding this cottage are spectacular. Thank you for letting us stay. We would definitely stay again and recommend to all of our friends.

Perfect Cottage for family of 4, Nature everywhere

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this wonderful cottage. My girls 10 and 7 did not want to sleep in the living room down stairs, a room that can convert into a sleep bed, but decided to sleep in the TV/game room on the couch up stairs on second floor. They were very comfortable on couch and floor mattresses provided and we appreciated the gate that can close at the top of the steep stair case. Just note the only bathroom is downstairs (but has wonderful heated floor!) Steps from the national park, steps from the ocean with insane lava rock formations, quick drive to the lava tube, the glacier, golden and black sand beaches, the horse farms. Perfect place to see the Northern Lights - seen twice April 22 and April 23. We saw whales swimming by with the insane ocean view. Closest store to buy some groceries (limited) was a gas station stop in the next town, maybe 25 min away. We ate once at the Hotel Hellnar steps away from the house which also provided a nice dinner and nice views. Had an excellent meal at Langaholt restaurant, best meal in Iceland. We did have to plan ahead and clean the house according to rental agreement (no cleaning service) before we checked out early in the morning as things take a bit of time to dry in the dryer. It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the house. You need to bring your own tp and paper towels/napkins! Overall a great, awesome place to stay. Prettiest location for sure with access to everything beautiful on the peninsula!

Best place you can find

  • 5 of 5

Georgeous quiet place with great great great view on both the ocean and Snaefellness (and northern lights)! The cottage is amazingly comfortable (especially the bed and the downstairs sofa) and very well equipped (oven, microwave, washing machine and dryer, tv with lots of DVD, board games, toys and books). I planned to stay four days but it was so great and cosy that I spent 17 days there! Gestur was very kind and flexible and always answers in short delay. The cottage was clean and in perfect condition. There is also a small cafe 5 min walk. I could not recommand it highly enough!

Beautiful cottage set in an awe-inspiring location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage and location. The moment we turned on the road and saw those cottages in the distance, set between the mountains and the ocean, felt like a dream. We were 4 adults (2 couples) and stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great home base for visiting the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. We also saw the Northern Lights shine bright above and all over the sky on the first 2 nights. Spectacular! Time went by too fast and was sad to leave. Felt peaceful, relaxing and the scenery all around that area is awe-inspiring. Thank you Gestur! and thank you for your communications during our booking and stay.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful comfortable cottage for one week! It was the perfect spot for exploring West Iceland! The village of Hellnar is gorgeous. There are 3 restaurants/cafes within walking distance from the cottage. The walk along the bird cliffs to Arnarstapi is magnificent!! The cottage was very bright and airy and had everything needed for cooking meals. The collection of DVDs was great for the few times we opted to just hang out. It is important to know that the TV area and master bedroom are upstairs while the kitchen, dining area and bathroom are downstairs. The steps are a bit steep but designed well with good sturdy handrails. My husband and I are both in our 60's and had no problems navigating the stairs.

Gestur was wonderful and very responsive to our every need. I highly recommend this wonderful cottage!!
