Das Haus ist wundervoll und sehr sauber. Es ist schnell warm. Die Küche hat alles was man braucht wenn man auf einen Geschirrspüler verzichten kann. Die beiden Betten sind super weich. Wir haben fabelhaft geschlafen. Das Badezimmer ist klein aber deutlich ausreichend und die Waschmaschine ist einfach. Es gibt genug Handtücher und Badetücher sowie auch mehr als genug Utensilien für die Endreinigung. Man kann sich super entfalten und fühlt sich sehr wohl. Gegenüber vom Haus ist eine Tankstelle. Sehr praktisch und man kann dort ein paar Dinge einkaufen wenn man nicht mehr nach Selfoss fahren will. Selfoss ist in 15-20 Minuten schnell erreicht. Wenn wir nochmals im Süden sind oder bei Reykjavik wohnen möchten werden wir wieder sehr gerne buchen. Nach Reykjavik sind es auch nur 40 Minuten je nach Straßenverhältnissen. Takk fyrir Haraldur!

Alles trotzdem Prima und sehr zu empfehlen.

Ferienhaus Helgafell in Eyrarbakki

  • 5 of 5

Die Angaben zum Haus im Angebot waren zu 100% korrekt.

Das Haus ist sauber, gepflegt und gemütlich eingerichtet.

Im Bad befindet sich neben Dusche, WC und Waschbecken eine Waschmaschine.

Handtücher und Badetücher waren ebenfalls vorhanden.

Die Küche ist vollständig eingerichtet.

Herd mit Backofen sowie Mikrowelle, Kaffeemaschine, Wasserkocher und Kühlschrank mit Gefrierteil sind vorhanden.

Es gibt reichlich Kochutensilien und Geschirr.

Wohnzimmer und Esszimmer bieten jeweils Platz für 4 Personen.

Es gibt 2 Schlafzimmer für je 2 Personen.

Das Haus besitzt ein gutes und schnelles WLAN, das wir problemlos simultan mit 4 Endgeräten nutzen konnten.

Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war völlig unkompliziert und nett, eine Antwort auf meine Anfrage kam immer prompt.

Die Bezahlung lief über Paypal, was sehr komfortabel, unkompliziert und schnell war.

Wir haben das Haus mit 4 Erwachsenen für 2 Wochen genutzt und es fehlte uns an nichts.

Es ist ein optimales Ferienhaus um die komplette Südküste von Island mittels Tagestouren zu erkunden.

Die Ringstraße N1 ist schnell erreicht, was der Garant ist um überall schnell hin zu gelangen.

Ich kann das Haus bedenkenlos jedem empfehlen, der ein Haus sucht um die Südküste mit Tagestouren zu erkunden.

a nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This cottage in Eyrarbakki is a cosy fishermanshouse, with a personal character. It has a lot of rooms downstairs, and upstairs there is also a lot of space. At the entrance there is enough place for the luggage and (muddy) shoes! The kitchen is fully equiped, the bathroom is small but efficient. The house is very clean.

At the back is a large garden, although we didn't use it because of the rainy weather during our stay. The cottage lies directly to the street, and opposite is the gasstation with a small shop.

Eyrarbakki is a small town, with a famous (fish-)restaurant.

We travelled a lot by car to visit for instance Thingvellir, towns like Selfoss, Vik, several falls, and to make walks. Returning to the cottage it was nice to stay in such a quiet surrounding, and to make a small walk to the ocean late in the evening.

We stayed in the cottage with 3 persons, and there is enough space for each of us.

We had a good time during our stay in this nice cottage.
