very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

everythink was fine and clean and all things you need are inside the house.

The owner was very friendly and kind and we enjoyed our stay.

We would recommend this property, because it also has a wonderful location.

We saw many birds just next to the window and made good walkings around the area, without any other tourists. So thank you very much for this lovely house. Family Mack from Germany

“WOW! Great View, perfect place to come back to, didn't want to leave” Will book again.

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. The pictures are not misleading.The house was clean, good location-Just to sit at the table in front of the house with a morning cup of coffee and a great, unobstructed view of the ocean. What a great place to relax.For us it was a great place to come back and decompress from all the running around.The small town of Hellnar is a special place.-

We didn't want to go back at home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening on the 10th of January. We like Iceland in the winter, the elements, the ice, the snow, the landscape, the silence, the storm and the loneliness. The cottage was warm and comfortable, very clean and modern. For me, as a hotelier, it is very important to have a clean and nice atmosphere. We felt immediately homelike. In the morning, when the sun rises up, we saw the Snaellnessjökull out of the window, a great view, we took a hundred of photos. The location is beautiful, near the Snaefällsness Nature Park, on one side you have the view to the mountains and on the other side you see and hear the ocean. We made a lot of walks along the coast. We didn't go out very often in the evening because there were snow storms. There is a restaurant and coffee shop next to the cottage, the "PRIMUS". The service is very, very friendly. There you can eat fish, sandwiches, cake, salad. The quality is very good and it is in walking distance. The other days we went shopping in Olafsvik or Grundafjördur. There you can buy everything, fish, vegetables and other things for a meal and the household. It was so nice to come home in the dark, sitting at the window with a candle and reading my books. Gestur was very helpful and a great host. He was always in contact with us. After ten days we didn't want to go home. We spend a great relaxing time in the cottage with a lot of impressions. Of course we will recommend this place to friends. We hope to come again. Thank you Gestur.

Prima cottage op een mooie plek

  • 5 of 5

Uitstekend verzorgde ruime cottage. Het huis was brandschoon, heel compleet en staat op een mooie plek om het westen van het schiereiland te verkennen. Wij hebben het er erg naar onze zin gehad.

Gestur, bedankt!

Good House In A Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A family of four (2 adults + 2 teenagers), we spent one week at this cottage which is approx. 2 hours from Reykjavik and 2.75 hours from Keflavik Airport. The accommodation (open plan + a (very!) small toilet / shower-room + hallway downstairs, and three separate bedrooms upstairs) was modern, clean, tastefully furnished, well equipped and in immaculate condition. Some points which potential visitors may find useful to know: (i) the rental conditions call for the property to be thoroughly cleaned (included changing the linen on the beds) before departure (it would be useful to have this called out before booking); (ii) the stairs are steep and could be difficult for less physically able people to manage; (iii) the tv / dvd player is located on the upper floor on the area immediately outside the bedrooms; (iv) semi-detached, the cottage is one of several properties within close proximity, in a small development. The house is ideally located beside some beautiful coastline with 2 good cafés within a short walk. The surrounding countryside (including the national park) is - like everywhere else in Iceland - stunning! Supermarket shopping is some 30 minutes away (if travelling from Reykjavik it is recommended to stock up at Borgarnes, en-route). Gestur's communication, before our holiday, was generally very prompt and, on the one occasion that we really needed to speak to him whilst on-site, he again responded quickly and was very helpful. We took advantage of his offer to hire us a car - an arrangement which worked well. In summary, we had a fantastic holiday and found this house a good base from which to explore this area of Western Iceland.
