“Just book it.”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Lodge and we both agree it was one of the best, most relaxing holidays we have ever had. Brekka is situated in a very peaceful location with beautiful views across the fjord and is a good place to view the Northern lights - we did seem to bring a lot of clouds with us from the UK but managed to see the lights on both of the two clear nights we did have.

I would echo the need for a 4x4, especially if there is snow on the ground. Iceland had record snowfall in the week before we arrived and there was still a good covering when we arrived but the owner, Jon Baldur, who provided help and advice on our trip from the initial booking via email, was waiting for us at the cabin when we arrived to make sure that we got up there ok, which was very much appreciated.

The cabin itself is very comfortable, cosy and well laid out with plenty of space, excellent amenities and also lots of windows through which to enjoy the views when you're not on the decking or in the hot tub. I think this is definitely the best option for enjoying Iceland's scenery and attractions, away from the lights and relative bustle of Reykjavik - much more relaxing : )

“Amazing place to stay with a truly astonishing view”
Reviewed 8 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We spent 4 nights at Brekka in February 2017 and loved every second of it. The cottage is so well maintained and appointed and the owner (Jon Baldur) was hugely helpful. The view from the living room is astonishing with the sun reflecting on the water of the fjord throughout the whole day. There was plenty of room for all five of us and the hot tub in the bushes was fantastic. Best place we have ever stayed.
Thanks jb.

“Beautiful lodge in a stunning location”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We booked this based on how lovely the lodge looked in the photo's, but to be honest I don't think they do it justice. This lodge is absolutely lovely, very warm and cosy with lots of room for larger families. The hot tub was great, although the weather wasn't that good for us so we weren't able to see the northern lights. With the utility/shower room, you could easily come in from the tub and get changed before giving the bathing costumes a spin in the washing machine to get the majority of water out. Akranes was convenient for shopping - we ate in the apartment each night as it had everything we needed. Lovely to have the TV in a separate area as well. We had a lovely restful few days and spent each evening after being in the hot tub playing cards while listening to music. You definitely need a 4x4 in winter here (lots of gravel roads about). The driving was very straightforward and we enjoyed time doing the golden circle. Only 1 1/2 hours from the international airport and worth being a bit further out to get the idyllic location. Would certainly recommend Brekka to anyone wanting a family home from home

“Breathtaking ”
Reviewed 13 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a enjoyable stay at this cottage, clean and comfortable all around. Views are breathtaking, and we were fortunate enough to watch the northern lights from the hot tub. Anyone staying here I highly recommend a SUV 4x4. On our first night, there was a lot of snow and if we didn't have a big car I doubt we would have made it up the hill.

Many thanks for these words and the practical advice. Yes, this winter many of our guests have been blessed by the northern lights! Until in the middle of April they're visible, but thereafter the night has got too light for to view the Lights.

“Amazing Stay!!!”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We arrived to a beautiful cleans and modern home ,set on a hillside with a gorgeous view!! The beds were so comfy, completely stocked kitchen to make breakfast and dinners, and the warm floors were a great surprise ! We loved our stay here and would recommend anybody who wants to get away from the city and have your own space. We also got lucky on our last night while we were in the hot tub the northern lights were right over the house !! Jon was fantastic and also gave us a heads up for when we should be able to see them ! Great communication , great host !
