  • 5 of 5

This is the greatest place to stay in Iceland. Full stop.

Bjorn is a fabulous person, and the home will knock your socks off the minute you walk in, not to mention the second you drive along the lake.

To sum it up, my 5 year old daughter walked in and the first words out of her mouth were," I want to live here."

If I could praise it more, I would, but I don't know how. You have to see it to believe it.

When we come back, this is where we'll stay.

Tolle Lage am See

  • 3 of 5

Das Haus liegt fantastisch auf einem tollen Waldgrundstück direkt am See. Es ist sehr groß und man hat jede Menge Platz. Jedes Zimmer ist mit einem Fernseher ausgestattet, auch WLAN ist vorhanden. Björn war sehr freundlich und hatte viele Tipps für Ausflüge. Man kann alle Sehenswürdigkeiten des Golden Circle prima von hier aus erreichen.

Leider war der Hot Pot kaputt, worüber wir sehr enttäuscht waren, weil wir aufgrund der Erfahrungen früherer Islandaufenthalte extra ein Haus mit Hot Pot gebucht hatten.

Und von uns gibt es nur drei Sterne, weil das Haus bei Ankunft nicht geputzt, sondern besonders in Bad und Küche richtig dreckig war. Küche und Bad sind einfach und wir haben beides als nicht sehr gepflegt empfunden. Trotzdem wir darauf hingewiesen haben, bekamen wir die Gebühren für die Endreinigung nicht zurückerstattet.
