Beauty and silence of Snaefellsnes peninsula
Great communication from the start to finish with the owner. Very easy to get a hold off when needed and even reached out to us right when we arrived.
We were able to let ourselves in to the beautiful home at the secluded and quiet location in Hellnar. The home is surrounded by a handful of similar homes, but we never heard any noise from anyone.
The owner has a set of keys with an alarm that monitors while we were out exploring. It was nice to have even more assurance that our luggage was safe when away.
It was great to have a washer and dryer during the stay. So convenient after having stayed at multiple hotels during this trip.
There was a nice living room and kitchen with fridge downstairs and a couch and tv upstairs with the three bedrooms. A lot of options to relax after a long day.
There are a handful of small restaurants about a 5 minute drive down the road and nicer, larger restaurants and stores within 30 minutes. Very convenient to some top photography locations.
We originally wanted to stay in a larger city near they but with everything sold out for the days we wanted, this was what we decided on. A very nice surprise. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
The only notice I would leave is that you are asked to wash your sheets and towels at the end of your stay as well as clean the house with cleaning supplies. This wasn’t a problem at all, just wasn’t expecting it. Very easy to keep clean and follow the instructions at checkout.
Amazing Hellner Hidaway
We absolutely loved this place. The area and cottage are amazing and we had lots to do for the four days we stayed. The crowning glory was we opened the front door and were greeted by an amazing Aurora Light Show. We would definitely like to spend more time here.
Thanks Scott for your kind words :)
Much love from Iceland,
Berglind & Gestur.
Perfect cottage in wonderful location
Very comfortable accommodation with everything needed to make our short stay a pleasure. Communication with the owner was very easy and their warm welcome and advice prior to arrival was appreciated. We would definitely use Kjarvalströð 8 again.
Thank you Doug. Glad you had a good time :-)
Great hosts, great property
We booked two cottages in Hellnar to accomodate our parents during our wedding and everything was fantastic. The owners were very friendly and communicative in advance of our stay and we had a great time in the houses, which are indeed very beautifully located and tastefully decorated. Thank you for everything, it was a great experience!
Thank you so much Mario and best wishes to you and your wife :-)
Quiet scenic hideaway
Our family had a fabulous stay over 4 days on the peninsula. We had plenty of room for sleeping, relaxing, and cooking our own meals. The stairs were a bit challenging to master so would advise against smaller children and older adults since all sleeping was upstairs. The dryer takes hours so plan ahead with the laundry to complete before your departure. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from one side and the mountains from the other. We had scenic walks to the water and convenient day trips for other activities.
Confort and silence in an incredible region
We enjoyed our stay at Hellnar. The house was confortable and spacious. Snaefellsness peninsula is indeed a summary of the Iceland landscape. The only regret was that our holidays ended so soon.
Few words cannot describe the beauty of icelandese nature, history and culture.
We strongly intend to return one day.
Thank you so much. Be welcome again any time :-)
