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 :)

Schönes älteres Fischerhäuschen in super Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, antike Möbel eben wie es damals 1908 und später war, aber mit modernen Utensilien, Waschmaschine und komplett eingerichtete Küche mit alles was man braucht um sich wohl zu fühlen. Wir hatten gemischtes Wetter, aber drin war es gemütlich warm. Der Süden der Insel lässt sich sehr gut von hier erkunden, man ist bei Selfoss schnell auf der Ringstraße, oder auch die Halbinsel Reykjanes, die auch sehr schön ist. In Selfoss hat man viele Supermärkte zum Einkaufen.

Wir waren problemlos an einem Tagesausflug bis nach Jökursarlon (die einzigartige Gletscherlagune) gefahren.

Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter, Haraldur, war problemlos, sachlich und nett, ich fand die Bezahlung über PayPal perfekt.

Vielen Dank, Haraldur für die schöne Zeit in deinem Ferienhaus.

Ich habe meine Jack Wolfskin graue Fleecejacke im Haus vergessen, also werden wir irgendwann wiederkommen, so schön war es.

Gemütlich und perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 5 Tage in diesem süßen Häuschen in Erarbakki! Wir haben es geliebt. Es war sauber, gemütlich, warm, alles funktionierte und man hatte alles was man brauchte. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es ausreichend in dem 12-15 Minuten entfernten Selfoss. Wir haben unabhängig vom Wetter jeden Abend einen schönen Spaziergang am Meer genossen - Eyrarbakka hat einen schwarzen Sandstrand, zu dem man gelangt, wenn man etwas weiter über die Hafenruine hinausgeht. Drum herum kann man Islandponnies streicheln und man ist von da aus schnell in Reykjavik. Auch der Weg nach Vik, ca. 1,5 Stunden, hat gelohnt, wo doch auf dem Weg dahin zum Bespiel der Skogafoss und noch weitere wunderbare Wasserfälle sind. Der Golden Circle ist auch in der Nähe. Kontakt mit dem Vermieter fand per Mail statt und war stets sehr, sehr nett. Wir würden das Haus jeder Zeit wieder buchen und es unseren Freunden auch empfehlen.

Super tollen Aufenthalt gehabt

  • 5 of 5

Wir konnten von hier aus alle Sehenswürdigkeiten erkunden. Das Haus war sehr schnucklig eingerichtet und es war von allem etwas da (Alles was man zum Leben braucht.) Gegenüber war gleich eine Tankstelle und der nächste Supermarkt war in Selfoss. Über die Straße war man gleich am Meer. Kann ich echt nur weiter empfehlen! Jeden Morgen kamen Hühner vorbei.

Un lugar especial

  • 5 of 5

Sin duda, la mejor relación calidad-precio de Islandia. Un placer volver a la calidez y confortabilidad de la casa después de un día visitando lugares tan sorprendentes como inhóspitos. Totalmente recomendable.
