Wonderful Stay,

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful "village" with some other black houses just next to ours. No worries to have regarding the proximity of the others houses. Great location, and well equipped, very mordern.

The house that we booked was smaller than expected (1 house separated in two houses). We were Quite surprise of the size of the bathroom,.. very small,.. as well as the 3 rooms that were quite small. (Not enough room to put our luggage in the floor)

On the other hand, It's the prefect spot to see Norther light as they are NO LIGHT Pollution Km around. We had the chance to see a wonderful Norther light during 2h early September. That was awsome.

Before departure, you need to clean everything, made the laundry,... That's not a problem if you are aware of it,.. but it takes some time,.. In other word, you need to prepare the house for the next guest, because no one will come in between to check or to clean.

We really enjoyed our four days in Hellnar. The house is very well equipped and offers fantastic views to the sea and the volcano.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this clean and well appointed cottage. The location was perfect for day trips around the peninsula. Working with the owner was easy and we appreciated his quick and helpful response when we had a question. We found the two floor layout convenient for our small family. The large downstairs family room was very nice and filled with light. Older folks may find the stairs to the bedrooms on the second floor a little steep, but it was no problem for any of us. The kitchen had everything we needed and was easy to work in. The close proximity to the other houses was a non-issue, and the house felt private. We hope we can return on our next trip!

This cabin was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin in Hellnar. The host Jakob was so helpful and accommodating. I was concerned, at first, about staying in Hellnar and whether there would be enough to do in the area. There was so much to do in just an hour radius that we didn't see everything in four days! I can honestly say this is one of the best places I have ever rented before. The beautiful setting, with the glacier to the front and the ocean at the back, made this cabin perfect for our group. Also, the beds were super comfy. :) I plan to come back and visit again one day. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cabin in this area.

Great Time in Hellnar ...

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time in "the second home of Jakob and Elsa". Thank you very much to have the good stay there. The House is very good furnished and well equipped. The location is absolutely perfect to relaxe, to enjoy Iceland and to make beautiful little or longer exploring tours by car or just by walking around the Snæfellsjökull. Unexpected at our first and second night in Hellnar there were aurora and good conditions to make some nice Fotos.

Best regards, Nik & Andrea
