Well maintained home in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 5 nights in the fall of 2017. The home was spacious enough for 6 adults and 1 child. We found the home clean and equipped with the essentials. Karl kept in contact via phone throughout our stay.

Tap water is absolutely delicious. Take your empty water bottle and fill it daily at the house to take with you when you go out exploring this incredible area. The hot water is HOT, so take care with young children when washing hands or bathing them.

The few toys at the house entertained my toddler while we made dinner each night. Bought groceries from Bonus in Borgarnes---but their opening hours are short (11:00-18:30), so plan accordingly.

Mountains behind the home and river in front with horses grazing nearby are views iconic to Iceland. Even though there are other homes in the area, this one was situated so that there was plenty of privacy.

We did not use the hot tub and the northern lights did not come out to play during our stay so we cannot comment on those...

We would recommend this home to families looking to get away from it all. You can use it as a home base as we did if you are willing to travel a bit to see some of the more famous sights outside of West Iceland. The sights/vistas along our drives were well worth the journey.
