About the property

The view is endless. The ocean on one side, the glacier on the other.

From the private wooden deck we have seen killer whales and dolphins.

The seals are regular visitors (seasonal) and different species of seabirds are at home here. This is no surprise as the house is facing the North Atlantic ocean and rich fishing grounds are in view.

The house used to be the village general store but has been converted by the present owners into two luxury apartments.

We also have a second apartment at the same location. If this apartment is already booked you can check on the other one. The name is Svörtuloft and the property number is 1017367.The village Hellissandur is only 200 km from Reykjavík (2.5 hours) and the roads are excellent. You can choose between three scenic routes going there.

Endroit paisible et authentique

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour chez Stella et Larus a été très agréable. L'appartement est moderne et situé directement sur la mer. Il est bien équipé avec toutes les commodités requises. La fenestration est abondante, ce qui permet une vue sur la mer et sur le volcan!

Il a été facile d'aller explorer le Parc national de Snaefellsjoukll à partir de cet appart. Le village de Hellisandur est petit mais on trouve une épicerie très bien garnie à Olafsvik.
