Spectacular Views from a Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage was perfect for the two of us. Everything you need is here to enjoy the west of Iceland. Palmi and Lilja were helpful and accommodating hosts. The view of the Northern Lights from the hot tub made this a spectacular place for our stay. Lots to see in the area, Glymur Waterfall hike is fantastic, Hraunfossar Lava waterfalls are beautiful and Snaefellsnes Peninsula is worth the drive!!

Nice an cosy cabin in the country side

  • 4 of 5

A comfortably furnished small holiday home. Excellent for 3 adults and one child. The descriptions on the website are accurate.

Especially the hot tube outside invites you to an evening of relaxation after a busy day. The service by the owners Palmi and Lilja is very accommodating and excelent. On any requests were met promptly. A very useful GPS was made available to us.

The apartment is located just 20 km away from the small and beautiful town Borganes. There are good shopping centres (supermarkets, refueling) and a great swimming pool with hot tubes. Also Reykjavik, it is not far (50 km). We could made our one day trips from here especially to the National Park Snaefellsnes with lots of hiking trails, visit the sourrounding of the golden cyrcle and the southwest of Iceland.

This is a lovely cabin in which to base yourself when visiting the West of Iceland. Within easy reach by hire car and to visit the famous tourist attractions. Palmi and Lilja are very nice people and very helpful. Would fully recommend the hot tub!

Cosy, Clean and Well Equiped

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything one could desire for those who wish to become acquainted with Iceland. First, Palmi could not do enough to make us feel welcome and settled in. As the property is also the family retreat it is has everything one might need including cute nick knacks one finds in a happy home. The general setting nestled in shortish Iceland trees give it a very country feel. The hot tub and deck with spectacular views of the valley and mountains add to the charm. The location is ideal to visit the top tourist and other interesting sights in the South West corner of the country. A winner.

prima verblijf gehad , prettig contact.

  • 4 of 5

(Dutch) Nadat we al een huisje aan de zuid kust voor een paar dagen gehuurd hadden. En daar al wat hoogtepunten bezocht hebben, was het hier genieten van de rust en de ruimte op IJsland. Het huisje is niet al te groot maar van alle gemakken voorzien, niet te vergeten de hot tube. Het staat wel wat vol met spulletjes

prettig contact met de eigenaar kortom een prima verblijf gehad.

Quite and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay and enjoyed the quiet. Perfect location for many trips in the surroundings, in particular, tours to Snaefellsnes. Rather small but very cosy. Everything you need is there.
