Peaceful, clean, lovely and perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay. We got groceries in town, and then cooked our own meals each evening in the kitchen with floor to ceiling windows looking out on the fjord. It was a peaceful place. Very clean. Would recommend to a friend.

Beautiful, secluded, modern, amazing property

  • 5 of 5

This is been the best HomeAway property I have stayed in so far. Absolutely STUNNING location on the fjord. We woke up to pink mountains hanging in the distance, reflecting in the calm water. The place itself is just as impressive; in every room there are floor to ceiling windows that offer an unobstructed view. The hot tub was our favorite part, and on our last night we were lucky enough to be able to watch the northern lights from the comfort and privacy of our property. I would recommend this property to anyone, especially in the winter when the rates are the most affordable and you seem to have all of the fjord to yourself. Thank you for sharing this amazing place with travelers from around the world!

Amazing house in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Finding the house was easy enough. The location was just amazing. Looking out over the water opposite the mountains. We even got to see the northern lights a few nights and got some

Great footage and photos!

House was immaculate. So so clean which is great for me as I’m a cleaner! Beds were comfy and the shower was super powerful. It just all felt luxurious and lovely it was a great 3 nights before we headed south! We certainly missed it for the rest of the week!

Town was a mere 20 minutes away. Weather was quite extreme but we loved it! Got blizzards and snow!

Oh I nearly forgot the hot tub! Lovelyyyy. Only downside is you got to get in early to start filling it up.

Only thing I would say was missing was tea coffee and sugar and little essentials like that. We did a food shop but was hard to gauge what might be available.

Oil was another thing, as needed it for most cooking so was a little stuck. The mugs were a little on the small side but we just had two!

Overall best place I’ve stayed ever I think!!

Beautiful Fjord views by day...Northern lights at night!!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Nollur Farm was amazing! The property affords amazing views from every room.

Looking out the floor-to-ceiling windows, we felt that we were aboard a stationary cruise ship!

We watched the sheep & the tidal changes during the day & the gorgeous Northern lights every night!

Also, highly recommend whale watching nearby! Amazing!

We hope to return again one day soon!

We loved, loved, loved this house!! In fact, we may have moved in permanently! Don't look in the cabinets!

The setting is spectacular. You can watch the northern lights from bed. Although there are tons of windows, you have complete privacy.

Do not stay here if you like peace and quiet. The only sound was the baaing of sheep or the honking of geese. Although there were other guests staying on the grounds, we heard no one.

The pictures do not do this property justice. It is beautiful and meticulously maintained.

We can't wait to come back!
