                                                              Amazing stay on the water

                                                              Could not have been more pleased with the home. Absolutely beautiful and very functional for my adult family of four. Great communication and recommendations from the owners that we relied upon more than our guide books. Overall, very happy with the location and experience.

                                                              Such a beautiful home!

                                                              If you are going to explore Iceland and want to get away from the city look no further than this home. It is absolutely beautiful, well appointed and comfortable. Everything about our stay was wonderful and we cannot thank Kristinn and Rut enough. You will not be disappointed!

                                                              Beautiful, peaceful place

                                                              Candace G.

                                                              This home was amazing. The views cannot be beat. The home was clean and stocked with anything you may need during a stay. Decorations were beautiful making us feel as if we were at our own home. The owners were great and easy to communicate with.

                                                              Beautiful Property in a Scenic, Secluded Location

                                                              Kevin C.Brooklyn, New York

                                                              This is a beautifully decorated and appointed property just 10 minutes south of Borgarnes. It's situated in secluded location, down a gravel road off the main highway, so you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. The house overlooks a lush and serene tidal plain, where all sorts of birdlife is visible. Horses galavant in the field above the house.

                                                              Inside, the decor is dark and chic, but the many windows let in ample light. The living area is high and open, with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, and opens up to a lovely deck complete with a picnic table for outdoor dining. The kitchen is very well equipped and open to the living and dining area. The bathroom is luxuriously large, equipped with a beautiful clawfoot tub and separate shower. You'll find the washer and dryer in there too, hidden behind a curtain. Upstairs, there is a sleeping loft, with a bedroom (2 single beds) and lounge area (2 stacked mattresses). Note that it's only separated by a curtain, so noise from downstairs will filter up.

                                                              Overall, it's a beautifully designed and well thought-out space. The owners have an equally amazing place in Stokkseyri for rent, which we highly recommend as well.

                                                              Lovely Home, Great Area

                                                              This home was everything described and pictured. It's a small, but cosy home and the location is perfect for exploring the Snaefellnes peninsula and the Golden Circle. It's also incredibly quiet with beautiful views. We would definitely recommend and stay here again if we come back.

                                                              Best house we've ever stayed in

                                                              Loved this home and the location. We didn't want to leave. Kirstinn is such a wonderful owner and made us feel like Family coming to stay. The interior design and attention to detail are stunning. Would highly recommend.
