Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay in iceland. An hour driving distance to most places we wanted to see, and fully equipped truly making it a home away from home. There was a gas station across the street and a big grocery store in the next town. It was cozy and big enough for two but could comfortably sleep 5 or more. The wifi connection was fast which made it easy to communicate back home. The home was heated making it cozy for the cold winter nights. Thank you Haraldur!! If we ever come back we wil definitely look here first :)

Nice house, perfect location to explore the Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

Found the house exactly as advertised. Everything was working, we found everything we needed. The house has a lot of character and its considerable age shows in places.

Haraldur keeps a lot of books in the house, the children liked the Puzzles the most.

Eyrarbakki does not have a supermarket, but there are some in Selfos. We found it the perfect base to explore the Golden Circle, Reykjavik is also not very far.

Heimeliges Ferienhaus

  • 4 of 5

Das Ferienhäuschen ist klein, charmant, warm und urgemütlich. Wir haben es volle 10 Tage genießen dürfen, auch in der Zeit der Sonnenwende. Besonders die komplett ausgestattete Küche hat uns überzeugt.

Wir hatten nur 2 Kritikpunkte. Die Treppe ins Obergeschoß ist klein und sehr steil. Für ältere Gäste sicherlich beschwerlich. Und die gegenüberliegende Tankstelle wird 24 h genutzt. Überwiegend abends und nachts wird hier getankt und bei laufenden Motoren palavert. Dafür hat man aber tagsüber den Shop zum Einkaufen.

Die Lage des Hauses ist ideal für Ausflüge nach Reykjanes, Reykjavik, Hveragerdi, Golden Circle, Hella, Skogar oder Vik.

Wir können das Haus weiterempfehlen.

Guter Ausgangspunkt für Süd Island.

  • 3 of 5

Alles vorhanden was man braucht. 100 Jahre Alt - kein modernes Komfort. Trotzdem gutes Preis/Leistung Niveau ( für Island).
