We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

These were truly wonderful hosts with good communication. It is a private and quiet home with beautiful hikes all around. Restaurants and groceries are nearby, about 4km away. The house has everything you need to cook at home too. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

Unbelievable stay

  • 5 of 5

The stay could not have been better. Communication before we arrived was terrific. Traveling with my wife and two children, 25 and 27, we had plenty of room. There was plenty of room, the small town was very close to Isafjordur, but a great place to walk up the valley. The kitchen was well stocked and the bbq was awesome. Wonderful location to explore the Westfjords and very affordable. An awesome way to stay in Iceland.

Great place in a quiet suburb of Isafjordur

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Rikhardur and Judi for the opportunity to stay in your summer home. We spent 5 nights in July/August 2016 at this spacious and well-maintained house. The house was very comfortable and the views were beautiful. The paved walking path to Isafjordur was a fun way to start my mornings while my family slept in. Highly recommended!

It was a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Best of them all! This truly was a home that was shared with us. It was fully stocked, sparkling clean and beautifully situated 5 km from Isafjordur. We would highly recommend this place to all of our friends.

Lovely, comfortable HOME

  • 4 of 5

We loved our visit to the West Fjords and this home provided a perfect base to explore. The house is well equipped, comfortable and our family really enjoyed the pool table! I would highly recommend the restaurant Tjoruhusid in Isafjordur, and the sidewalk between Hnifsdalur to Isafjordur makes walking home after a nice meal very pleasant.

Our only regrets were that we didn't stay longer, and that we didn't get to see the area on a sunny day!
