Mediocre

  • 3 of 5

There were many flies in the house. I had to kill a few. The bathroom had a weird smell. The table also was quite dirty as it seemed to not have been cleaned especially as there are gaps in the table.

Wunderbares Ferienhaus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Hallo,

wir durften in diesem Ferienhaus 5 schöne Urlaubstage mit unseren Kindern verbringen.

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr groß und mit allem ausgestattet, was für einen schönen Urlaub notwendig ist. Ideal auch mit Waschmaschine, Trockner und Spülmaschine. Die Aussicht auf den Fjord ist traumhaft - es lassen sich Wale beobachten.

Der kleine Ort Grenivik ist ein hübsches, kleines Örtchen mit den nötigsten Versorgungsmöglichkeiten und einem schönen Schwimmbad.

Viele Grüße

Highly recommendable

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at the beginning of march.

It's a beautiful place. The house is very spacious and lies beside the coast line in the village Grenivìk.

The climb to the Þengilhöfði is a must while staying in Grenivìk. But there is also a lot to do nearby (even during wintertime).

Tolles Haus mit wunderschöner Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Schönes, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus direkt am Fjord, wunderschöner Ausblick.

Als wir kamen war das Haus warm, die Betten bezogen und sogar der Kaffeeautomat war gefüllt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
