Beautiful little cottage by the sea
I took a wonderful 4 day vacation with my 2 teenagers. The house was in a great location, the view of the ocean was beautiful in the morning, and it was so incredibly peaceful. The house was wonderfully equipped and having Wifi was so helpful and helped save on the cell phone fees as we would save our maps for the next day. The house had cable TV and we even watched one of the Icelandic movies they had available in their library. Steinunn was so great and even gave us the option of checking in early. The only issue we had at all was closing and locking the front door as it would stick. Other than that it was wonderful and we would definitely return to this house on our future trips to this beautiful island!!
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!
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!).
Great little farmhouse by the ocean!
Owner has done a nice job converting this farmhouse into a nice little home for a family. We had plenty of room, the owner was exceptionally responsive.
Comfortable, warm and clean
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
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.
