Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Great home with everything we needed. Loved waking up to the view of the ocean, exploring the backyard rock beach & seeing the beautiful sunsets! Great location to get to Reykjavík, Golden Circle and Vik!

Great well equiped home by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great, it had everything we needed. Was comfortable and warm. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could need. There were even towels for swimming. The location is great, just a really short walk from the coast. With a car you can easily access all the golden circle sites and even further afield. The information sent from the owner was really helpful. A great holiday (despite the weather!).

Comfortable, warm and clean

  • 5 of 5

So enjoyable. Steinunn and Fridirik were kind and thoughtful hosts. The house was well equipped, warm and comfortable. The location was excellent, being only 100m from the beach and with amazing views of the Aurora (on 2 occasions) and night sky (including the Milky Way).

Hope to visit again.

Perfect base to explore Iceland from

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family of 4 for a week in October. The house was in a lovely location, right by the ocean, and was equipped with everything we could possibly need. Although we didnt meet Steinunn and Fridrik, they were easily contactable and sent lots of clear directions, instructions for the house, and links to information about things to do. And when we had an issue with water supply one evening, it was sorted by the time we woke up the next morning! Thank you so much for the use of your house, it was the perfect base for our holiday.

Very comfortable accommodation in great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property for one week from 26th September 2017 on a self catering basis. Very comfortable and in a great location for travelling around the South. Warm and cosy with all mod cons. Communication with Steinunn and Fridirick was fab. Sent lots of links and directions prior to arrival. Accommodation was well large for two of us and would suit a big family. We certainly made a great choice. Seen the borealis on the second night. Great location for photography as it was right on the beach and North Atlantic. Had a great holiday.
