Lovely stay in a stunning location.
Karl’s house is a lovely place to stay on the West coast of Iceland. The location is excellent, with 2 waterfalls easily viewable from the house. The house itself has an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a hot tub, which uses water from a local hot spring. I appreciate Karl can’t control the weather, but the west coast of Iceland is windy especially in Winter. Overall though our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Three wonderful days at this enchanting place. Perfectly located for exploring the west part of island. A cosy retreat to return to at the end of the day to reflect on the sights and plan the next adventures. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. I loved every minute. Thank you for hosting us.
We stayed several different places on our two week visit to Iceland, this was by far our favorite. We saw the northern lights on our first night there! The cottage was very comfortable and well supplied. But best of all the views from every window were spectacular!
The cabin's location is incredible with views of the river in front of the cabin being amazing.
This was our first couple of nights in Iceland and was a great location to start our exploration of the western side of the country. The cabin is placed right against a tall mountain and the views in front of the cabin and behind the cabin are unbelievable as are the sunsets. Beds were comfortable, hot soaking tub was wonderful and generally the cabin was just what we were looking for. Nothing fancy but good clean simple space with all necessary amenities.
Well maintained home in a beautiful location!
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.
Sehr erholsam, herrliche Blicke übers Wasser zum Sonnenuntergang, schöne Ausflugsziele
Äußerst gemütliches Holzhaus, großzügig eingerichtet, prima Aussicht in alle Himmelsrichtungen. Sehr schön gelegen, etwas erhöht über dem Fjord. Hot tub am Abend sehr entspannend.
