Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice stay in this cottage that is located in a very quiet, inspiring and staggering area. We came late at night to this perfectly clean and beautiful house and where happy to find that the beds where nicely made ready with clean fresh sheets so we could crawl strait in. The house is equipped with everything you need, dishwasher, washing machine, drier, very comfortable beds and nicely furnished. There is a big patio around the house so we could always find shelter from the wind. The area Snafellsnes is amazing. We never got tired to just watch the mountains, the lava formations and colors, the spectacular cliffs along the shore and the Glazier. The communication´s with the owner was very friendly and helpful during our planning. We give this house and this area our best recommendations and will surely be back for more. Thank you!!!

This cottage is perfect for a rest-and-relaxation visit to Iceland! The space is clean and cozy, the epitome of comfort. The location is a perfect one to see the dancing aurora. The views of the mountains and ocean are also spectacular. Elsa and Jakob are friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond. We will certainly re-book this cottage for our next stay in Iceland!

Cozy cottage tucked in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed in Jakob's cottage for a few days as we were going to be eloping on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. We absolutely loved our time there and Jakob was very helpful in preparing us for our stay. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The location can't be beat, as it sits within walking distance to the wonderful Primus Kaffi and the Hellnar church. We would highly recommend staying here!

A lovely property in a peaceful and picturesque setting.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and well cared for property for a family stay. It was spotless on arrival and offered a good location from which to explore on foot or by car. The cottage is well laid out and very quiet.

Wonderful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for 4 nights in the beginning of May. The cottage was in a great location for us to explore the Snæfellsnes peninsula. When we saw everyone scurrying around the peninsula to see it all in one day we were very happy to go back to this cozy place. The cottage itself was very nice in every way. Everything was neat and clean and even though the weather was cold and windy we were very comfortable in our cozy cottage.
