Extraordinary house in spectacular nature

  • 5 of 5

A very well cared for and maintained house , perfectly equipped with everything you need to feel at home . We spent a wonderful week at this warm and cosy house ! All pictures in the information represent perfectly what to expect . You will still be overwhelmed by the atmosphere of that special place in iceland ! There is lots to see and do in the vicinity : hiking , horseback-riding and observing Aurora Borealis !! And should there be some stormy weather - you are staying in such a cosy , comfortable and warm house - you won't be worried at all. The owner was very helpful in giving tips on where to shop groceries , to dine etc. We stayed a week and loved every day we had ! It was the last property we stayed at after 17 days of circling Iceland - and by far the loveliest house . We would love to return one day:))

Perfect mix of nature and style

  • 5 of 5

Situated amidst the beautiful surrounding of Hellnar the cottage got everything for a perfect stay: well kept and well equipped, cozy, brilliant views to the glacier (even from out of bed!) and to the sea and a nice selection of puzzle and DVDs.

Clear and useful instructions for the technical aspects and information about attractions in the area are available. However, if questions arise the owner responds immediately to any request.

Horse riding, hiking and far more excursions are imminently available within 15min drives, two restaurants in Hellnar itself offer their service - Overall an excellent plave to spend relaxing holidays for the whole family mixed with exciting excursions.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Impeccable cottage in amazing surroundings, just next to the glacier, 200 m away from the little church of Hellnar and the beautiful coast. We stayed there a full week, 2 adults and 2 adolescent sons, there was ample room for everybody, all is nice and cozy. If I could just give one recommendation, that is to have a bit more of dishes and cutlery at the cottage, when a larger party comes to stay you end up having to use the dishwasher non stop. Aside this, the amenities are just great, everything is new and works super well. I highly recommend the place!

Traumhaus im Westen von Island

  • 5 of 5

Ein Haus zum Wohfühlen, in das man am liebsten sofort für immer einziehen möchte. Perfekt eingerichtet, bestens ausgestattet und vom Vermieter bestens organisiert, damit es auch so bleibt. Auch die Lage ist sehr gut: ruhig, nahe am Meer und perfekt, um die ganze Halbinsel zu erkunden. Vielen Dank für den unvergesslichen Aufenthalt!
