We had a very nice stay in this cottage that is located in a very quiet, inspiring and staggering area. We came late at night to this perfectly clean and beautiful house and where happy to find that the beds where nicely made ready with clean fresh sheets so we could crawl strait in. The house is equipped with everything you need, dishwasher, washing machine, drier, very comfortable beds and nicely furnished. There is a big patio around the house so we could always find shelter from the wind. The area Snafellsnes is amazing. We never got tired to just watch the mountains, the lava formations and colors, the spectacular cliffs along the shore and the Glazier. The communication´s with the owner was very friendly and helpful during our planning. We give this house and this area our best recommendations and will surely be back for more. Thank you!!!

We had a lovely 5 nights in Hellnar. The house was very comfortable and warm with everything you need. Communication with owner was excellent and all instructions received were clear. There is no longer a visitor centre in Hellnar though. It has moved to another place. We saw the Northern Lights on two clear evenings even though the forecast was minimum (0), there was a good display for over an hour. The area is quiet and peaceful and the scenery is truly beautiful. The walk to Anastapi is well worth doing.
We had a few problems finding the cottage as it was pitch black when we arrived but we asked at the nearby hotel and realised we had just passed it! The cottage is very warm and cosy....I feel the cold very badly but I hardly even needed my hot water bottles at night, and it was -8 outside!
The surrounding area is breathtakingly beautiful and a perfect spot to watch the Northern Lights...we were lucky enough to see them from the outside of the cottage every night we stayed and they danced above our heads halfway back to the airport too! If peace, seclusion and phenomenal natural beauty is what you are looking for, then this is the place for you! I only wish we could have stayed longer.
The accommodation was wonderful and really well equipped, lots of extra really nice touches and the best equipped accommodation we had ever stayed in. Loved the area lots to see and very picturesque .
Located right by the ocean, romantic and quiet. Great access to Snaefellnes coast and surrounding towns. Cottage is like new, with everything needed right there. Owner Jakob amazing to deal with - responsive and very helpful. Whether it's just a few nights or a longer stay we really recommend this cottage! Simply amazing experience.

We (a family with children aged 10 and 12) had an absolutely fantastic stay at this property. The accommodation was warm, light and lovely with really comfortable beds and bedding. Jakob and Elsa were really welcoming and super helpful in answering any questions about the booking and even sent us a text to tell us the Northern Lights 'were on'. The location of the house, with views to the glacier behind and the coast and big skies in front was just wonderful. We walked the coast to Arnarstapi, had the black pebble beaches to ourselves at Djupalonssandur and Dritvik, swam and soaked in the hot tubs at the pool in Olafsvik, watched massive waves crash against the cliffs at Malariff and spent a couple of nights watching the Northern Lights under clear, starry skies from the deck of the property. This house and its setting are really special - we really hope to return!
We stayed here End of February and we was enthused.
From the first contact up to the personal meeting Jakob was very nice and provided us with important and useful information.
The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. Nothing is missing here.
Thanks again to Jakob and Elsa, who enable us with her cottage and her kindness a great holiday.
We will be back definitely.
