Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

The purpose of our trip was to try and fulfill a long time wish of my wife to see the " Northern Lights". My wish was for peace and quiet. Both wishes filled by the bucket load.

We didn't arrive till late in the evening after the worst snow for many years and with the northern lights buzzing all around I was pleased to get into the warmth of our home for the next week. Next morning wow we were not disappointed what a view, surround sound vision.

Snow covered mountains all around with ice blue fjord water to add more beauty. The home for the week did not disappoint in any way Jacob , the owner, had covered everything you could want even down to binoculars to bring the views closer.

The whole stay could not have been better we enjoyed our first visit to Iceland and would thoroughly recommend both the country and this property.

Many thanks to Jacob, the country and their people for making it the most memorable vacation ever.

Best wishes

Paul and Jean

Beautiful home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Iceland and especially loved ending our days looking out over the beautiful fjord. Each night was a new experience and the view was amazing. Since we had day trips planned for our week long stay, the location was perfect and gave us very easy access to all of the places we wanted to go.Jakob was extremely accommodating, the home was equipped with everything we needed. Our bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed all of the other comforts of home. We can't wait to come back to Iceland and would definitely want to stay here again. Thank you Jakob and Elsa!

Lovely cottage, spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage - nicely furnished and equipped -- with an absolutely spectacular view. It is very private and in a tranquil setting. We made easy day trips from here to Reykjavik, as well as to Thingvellir, Geysir etc. There are also some less well known but very beautiful hikes nearby. There are good bird watching sites locally. The cottage is also a great spot just to relax and unwind. The host was very easy to deal with and always readily accessible by phone or email.

The terms of rental require that you clean the cottage and do the laundry before leaving. We underestimated how long this would take and in the end decided to spend the last night of our stay at a hotel near the airport because there was no way we could get this done in the morning before our flight - so factor this into your plans.

Wonderful and clean! The view was amazing.

  • 4 of 5

Jakob was a great communicator and the house was in immaculate shape.

The views are amazing while the cliffs lead you to keep your small children close. Overall the place is in a quiet area with only local traffic.

We would go back again!
