Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was very beautiful and located in a quiet neighborhood. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful when a serious storm was approaching during our stay. For international travelers, the property is about an hour and half away, and about an hour and 15 minutes from Reykjavik. Johannes was also very helpful by letting us know how to see the Northern Lights from the property. There is a grocery store about 15 minutes that has everything you need!

Things I wish knew before renting the property:

- Please familiarize yourself with driving on ice and in high winds. Driving to the property you are inbetween high mountains and coastal shores, which produces high winds that can push the car while driving. Therefore, when renting a car please make sure that you have a vehicle that is equipped to driving outside of the city.

- There is a toll road going into the Reykavik that is ~ 10USD each way from this property. As you could imagine that cost can build up.

Nonetheless, please do not let what I mentioned deter you from this property. This is an amazing property and would love to stay again. Just felt that you should know these things so that you can be aware of these items before your stay.

Great home and location for touring West Iceland

  • 5 of 5

Worry free rental that had everything we needed in a newly built/refurbished home. Plenty of room for our large group. Great location to spend a day in the capital as well as the wonderful town of Borgones and the peninsula. Owner was easily accessible and helpful. Most comfortable beds we've had in weeks of travel.

Best in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this house! Plenty of room and a lovely kitchen that we very much appreciated. Great swimming pool in Borgarnes. Easy to get to many sites. We would come back in a heartbeat! It's quiet-well appointed- artistic touches--and owners are responsive and friendly. Overall, just had good energy. Definitely a win!

  • 5 of 5

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...

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.
