Fantastic large place with great space and great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean, beautiful and well-equipped, with a stunning property and amazing location. There was plenty of space for our group of 8. The views and sunrise from the huge windows in the lounge area were amazing.

We would come back to this home in a heartbeat. It was clean, the furniture and beds were really comfortable, and it was equipped with everything you'd possibly need. Though we bought most of our food from Bonus before arriving it was really nice that this home had things like spices and sugar, so that we didn't have to go without.

This location was a perfect base for exploring southern Iceland. The owner Bjarki was very helpful and we appreciated his waiting for us even though we arrived much later than anticipated. We strongly recommend this wonderful property.

A fantastic property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning, very well equipped property, in an amazing location. We stayed as a family of 6 adults, and all thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home. The views from the vast windows in the lounge area were incredible - snow-capped mountains, and the beautiful Westman Islands.

This is an exceptional home - the furniture and beds were really comfortable, and the whole property was spotlessly clean. The kitchen has everything you need for a self-catered stay, and on a practical note, the large fridge freezer was a real bonus - it enabled us to store the food we had bought in a Bonus supermarket on arrival in Reykjavik, and meant we didn't need to waste time shopping in more expensive local outlets during our stay.

There are stunning black sand beaches, just 5 minutes' drive away, and the location of the property gives complete peace and privacy. It was a perfect base for exploring southern Iceland.

Thank you so much to Bjarki and Arnar for their kindness and attention to every detail - we strongly recommend this wonderful property.

Very comfortable house - Very Quite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 7 days. It is very spacious and bright with lots of windows. House is furnished well and kitchen is fully equipped. Bjarki always responded right away. We were only four people but the house can easily accommodate 8-10 people. Location is great if you want to explore South of Iceland and it is in a very quite location. It is about equal distance from Selfoss and Vik. You can cover the water falls, blue lagoon, golden circle, black sand beaches and the wrecked DC-3 plane quite easily. Ice lagoon (jokulsarlon) is also possible and so is some east and west coast based on how much you like to drive. We also were able to witness northern lights right from the house. Also, there are black sand beaches and Icelandic horses very close to the house. Also, you can easily view the eyjafjallajokull volcano right from the house.

Beatiful house near the western islands

  • 5 of 5

The house is modern, well equiped, well maintained and very clean!

We stayed there 10 people -- 4 adults and 6 children, and enjoyed thespacious living room and the well equipped modern kitchen and the large modern bathrooms.

The house looks better in real life than the pictures. It is surrounded by flat fields, and the islands can be viewed. We used the house as a base for trouring south west iceland and the location was good. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet close to local attractions.

We would highly recommend the place

Endroit calme et agréable

  • 3 of 5

Très belle maison, bien agencée et confortable. Un seul problème, la cuisine n'était pas propre, dommage. Pour le reste, tout était bien. Idéalement située pour partir en randonnées. On recommande :Midgard Adventure.
