Great place in a quiet suburb of Isafjordur

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Rikhardur and Judi for the opportunity to stay in your summer home. We spent 5 nights in July/August 2016 at this spacious and well-maintained house. The house was very comfortable and the views were beautiful. The paved walking path to Isafjordur was a fun way to start my mornings while my family slept in. Highly recommended!

It was a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Best of them all! This truly was a home that was shared with us. It was fully stocked, sparkling clean and beautifully situated 5 km from Isafjordur. We would highly recommend this place to all of our friends.

Lovely, comfortable HOME

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to the West Fjords and this home provided a perfect base to explore. The house is well equipped, comfortable and our family really enjoyed the pool table! I would highly recommend the restaurant Tjoruhusid in Isafjordur, and the sidewalk between Hnifsdalur to Isafjordur makes walking home after a nice meal very pleasant.

Our only regrets were that we didn't stay longer, and that we didn't get to see the area on a sunny day!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, we enjoyed playing billard every evening. Great hosts! They offer so many little things like spices or washing powder etc. . Marvellous.

Iceland is a beautiful country and if you want to see the westfjords, we recommend staying at this place.

Soleil de minuit

  • 5 of 5

3ème séjour en Islande. Nous n'avons pas été déçues. La maison est chaleureuse, l'environnement est tranquille, la région splendide, grandiose.

Nous avons trouvé une maison familiale, traditionnelle. Tout y est simple, clair, transparent. Les consignes sont expliquées en détail, et rien ne nous a manqué.

Merci de ce cadeau...

Great location in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 3 nights. The location is spectacular, and the town fabulous. We had the best time. It is one of the places I always think about when I think back on my trip. There is a great sidewalk all the way into town, and running into town and back in the early mornings is a great memory. The scenery will steal your breath.

The accommodations were spacious, comfortable, and well-stocked. We could not have asked for more. Everything we needed was there. The kitchen was well stocked with utsensils and plates, cleaning supplies etc.

My one issue with our stay was having to clean up before we left, because our flight was very early in the morning. So it was a little hard, but that is our issue, and not an issue with the actual home!

We had a great time and I'd recommend to anyone.
