This house has the most fantastic view, you could ever imagine! Totally breathtaking. The host was very friendly and informative. The dish washing machine was out of function, but people had used it anyways, so plates, forkes and knifes were dirty. There is no salt and pepper or anything in the kitchen, so bring everything, if you want to cook yourself.

Stampar25 is located at a wonderful site near to the fjord. We enjoyed the silence and the sea and even saw a seal having fish for breakfast. It is also so comfortable and cosy, inside as well as outside. If we ever come back to Iceland we will try to go to Stampar25 again. Thanks to Jakob and Elsa, Doris and Bernd from Munich

Maja was a great host and provided us with some great day trip ideas which meant we made maximum use of our time. We would definitely recommend to family and friends and would love to go back.
