Perfect mix of nature and style

  • 5 of 5

Situated amidst the beautiful surrounding of Hellnar the cottage got everything for a perfect stay: well kept and well equipped, cozy, brilliant views to the glacier (even from out of bed!) and to the sea and a nice selection of puzzle and DVDs.

Clear and useful instructions for the technical aspects and information about attractions in the area are available. However, if questions arise the owner responds immediately to any request.

Horse riding, hiking and far more excursions are imminently available within 15min drives, two restaurants in Hellnar itself offer their service - Overall an excellent plave to spend relaxing holidays for the whole family mixed with exciting excursions.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Impeccable cottage in amazing surroundings, just next to the glacier, 200 m away from the little church of Hellnar and the beautiful coast. We stayed there a full week, 2 adults and 2 adolescent sons, there was ample room for everybody, all is nice and cozy. If I could just give one recommendation, that is to have a bit more of dishes and cutlery at the cottage, when a larger party comes to stay you end up having to use the dishwasher non stop. Aside this, the amenities are just great, everything is new and works super well. I highly recommend the place!

Traumhaus im Westen von Island

  • 5 of 5

Ein Haus zum Wohfühlen, in das man am liebsten sofort für immer einziehen möchte. Perfekt eingerichtet, bestens ausgestattet und vom Vermieter bestens organisiert, damit es auch so bleibt. Auch die Lage ist sehr gut: ruhig, nahe am Meer und perfekt, um die ganze Halbinsel zu erkunden. Vielen Dank für den unvergesslichen Aufenthalt!
