West House Rental Photos and Description

5 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 6-8

3 rooms with large double beds and a pull-out sofa in the living room that accommodates two.

One bathroom, including hair dryer and a flat iron, and a washing machine.

A relatively new house with a big garden and two patios, where the amazing view is ideal to be enjoyed over breakfast.

In front of the kitchen window is a population catchment area and the reserve of the White-fronted Goose in Iceland as well as a thriving birdlife of many sorts. The northern lights can be seen from the house.

Located ten minutes by car from Borgarnes, where one can find all necessities, tourist information and general service, and a short 60 minute drive from Reykjavík.

This home away from home was just perfect. Very, very comfortable. We were a family of 4 and found the area to be ideal for our first trip to Iceland. The house is about 50mins drive from Reykjavik, a 10min drive from Borgarnes and easy to reach local attractions. E.g lava tubes ("The Cave") and whale watching etc..

I would not hesitate to go back to this home again and hope to do so for some quiet R&R during the winter months...

This is a well maintained, clean, modern, spacious lovely house. 15 minute drive from Borgarnes which has all the amenities. Very convenient location to explore most of southwest Iceland. Owner was very helpful. Our family of 5 absolutely loved it.

Beautiful home in the country

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean and well maintained property about 1 hour north of Reykjavik. It was a perfect location for exploring the Snaefellsnes peninsula by car. The small town of Borgarnes is about 15 minutes away by car and has gas stations, grocery stores and other necessities as well as some dining options and a nice swimming pool.

Feriehus Hvanneyri. Johannes Armannson

  • 4 of 5

Et fint hus med alle fasiliteter. Trivelig vertskap med tiltro til leieboerne.

Fint turterreng i Hvanneyri, men ikke havutsikt fra huset.

Meget bra utgangspunkt for bilturer til Vest-Island og til severdigheter som Tingvellir m.m.

Vest-Island er svært vakkert, og veiene er gode.

Borgarnes er imidlertid ikke verdens navle. Fort ferdig med den byen. Men småbyene på Snefellsnes er bedre!

Huset Anbefales!
