Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

The purpose of our trip was to try and fulfill a long time wish of my wife to see the " Northern Lights". My wish was for peace and quiet. Both wishes filled by the bucket load.

We didn't arrive till late in the evening after the worst snow for many years and with the northern lights buzzing all around I was pleased to get into the warmth of our home for the next week. Next morning wow we were not disappointed what a view, surround sound vision.

Snow covered mountains all around with ice blue fjord water to add more beauty. The home for the week did not disappoint in any way Jacob , the owner, had covered everything you could want even down to binoculars to bring the views closer.

The whole stay could not have been better we enjoyed our first visit to Iceland and would thoroughly recommend both the country and this property.

Many thanks to Jacob, the country and their people for making it the most memorable vacation ever.

Best wishes

Paul and Jean

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Wow. What am amazing country and an amazing cabin. Set in the most stunning of places with ever changing views across thee bay. The cabin is extremely well equipped and Jakob and Elsa were super helpful at all tines. We arrived to thick snow and Jakob/Elsa text a few days before to advise us to hire a 4 wheel drive (which we definitely needed). We had some VERY extreme weather which all added to the fun.

I was a bit concerned about the cleaning of the cabin so took my own cleaning things but everything you could possibly need is provided. I can't recommend this place highly enough and we are already planning on coming back in the summer.

We arrived to the northern lights over the bay which was stunning.

We are a family of 5 (3 children ranging from 4 to 10) and there is so much to see and do. On our first day we built ice caves in the garden. Gullfoss was frozen and beautiful, the geyser (Strokker) was great fun and the blue lagoon was fabulous too. Some roads were closed due to snow but it didn't stop us getting out. I could go on and on about this country and cabin.

One last thing was we always felt warm and cosy in the cabin. I will miss watching the changing views over the bay to the mountains.

Perfect Trip

  • 5 of 5

Jakob was an incredible considerate host, helping with directions and insuring everything went well. My mid-20's children travel all over and when we saw Jakob's charming cottage they immediately wanted to go visit Iceland. The trip was fantastic with plenty of places near the house. Everyone is looking forward to a Spring/Summer trip back. Thank you "Uncle" Jakob for your kindness.
