Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice stay in this cottage that is located in a very quiet, inspiring and staggering area. We came late at night to this perfectly clean and beautiful house and where happy to find that the beds where nicely made ready with clean fresh sheets so we could crawl strait in. The house is equipped with everything you need, dishwasher, washing machine, drier, very comfortable beds and nicely furnished. There is a big patio around the house so we could always find shelter from the wind. The area Snafellsnes is amazing. We never got tired to just watch the mountains, the lava formations and colors, the spectacular cliffs along the shore and the Glazier. The communication´s with the owner was very friendly and helpful during our planning. We give this house and this area our best recommendations and will surely be back for more. Thank you!!!

Lovely cabin in stupendously beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is charming, clean and very comfortable. It is about a 2 hour drive from Reykjavik. We drove along the Golden Circle one long day to the more touristed areas but really found the sites on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula just as spectacular.

Stunning location and a lovely little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It was very neat, clean and tastfully furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need to prepare nice meals for yourself. The master bedroom as spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom, despite being small, was very functional. We appreciated having a dishwasher and both a washer and dryer for doing our laundry. We enjoyed using the gas bbq grill and took advantage of it on several occasions. The sofa was wonderfully comfortable for lounging around and reading a good book when the weather wasn’t so nice. The WiFi worked very well despite the remote location and my husband appreciated being able to watch the World Cup football on the tv in the cosy little tv loft. I would absolutely recommend this cottage to everyone and I would go back again myself. The surrounding area is just breathtakingly beautiful. The only criticism I could give is not having a bathroom upstairs with the bedrooms, however that was a minor issue.

Beautiful cottage in great location perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite place to stay during our entire visit to Iceland. The cottage is comfortable, impeccably clean, and equipped with everything you might need for your stay. The ocean and hiking trails are only a short walk away, as are some incredible restaurants. The perfect place from which to explore the peninsula.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for a rest-and-relaxation visit to Iceland! The space is clean and cozy, the epitome of comfort. The location is a perfect one to see the dancing aurora. The views of the mountains and ocean are also spectacular. Elsa and Jakob are friendly, accommodating, and quick to respond. We will certainly re-book this cottage for our next stay in Iceland!
