“Couldnt have asked for a better stay!”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Whether you are traveling with family or friends, this is the perfect home for your group! We arrived extremely early due to our flight schedule and Elias was there to greet us. The home is so quaint and quiet. It was very cold while we were there and we had no issues with the heat. The home was warm and comfortable our entire stay. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery from every window of the house! It has a full kitchen, equipped with everything you need to cook. You just need to bring the food. The bathroom was spacious and had plenty of towels and other amenities you might need during your stay. There are two bedrooms downstairs and one up in the loft with 4 beds. The loft stairs are pretty tricky and I wouldn't recommend them to folks that cant navigate tight stairs, however, the bedrooms downstairs make up for it. I cant say enough about this beautiful property! The pictures just don't do it enough justice. You really just need to be there to experience the beauty. We are already excited to book another stay here in the coming years. Thank you Elias for such a wonderful stay!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I would absolutely recommend this rental. It is warm and cozy and we felt very at home. Elias was very kind and communicated with us before we arrived and met us when we got there. This house is right on the water in Vogar about 20-30 minutes away from the airport in the lava fields of the Snafellsnes peninsula close to the Blue Lagoon. Reykjavik is about 40 minutes away. The area was very quiet and picturesque and it is a great place to see the aurora borealis.

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The farmhouse was a great place to vacation in Iceland. Elias was very helpful, he met us when we arrived and walked us through the house. The location was absolutely perfect near the ocean with a breath-taking view all around. Very peaceful, scenic place but close to Reykjavik and the airport. There was ample room for us 3 people but could have accommodated 5 or 6. The upper loft was a cozy place for my teenage daughter to hang out, the stairs were very steep though; not for elderly individuals. The amenities were great washer, dryer, a small but full kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. The only small thing that was a challenge was the low water pressure of the shower (but we all managed). We would stay again if we visit the area again.

“wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Even though we were later than expected Elias met us at the house and gave us a tour. This was a great start to our Iceland tour: near the airport with food shops on the way; plenty of space; comfortable beds; plenty of essential supplies; warm and welcoming. Thank you, Elias. It was lovely to meet you and stay in your home which has so much of your family history on display. Loved it.

“Fabulous House - loved our stay”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Situated halfway between Reykjavik and the airport, this home is a wonderful place to stay for those who like beautiful views and peace and quiet in a lovely home. Our family of 4 (including a 16 year old and 13 year old) stayed here for 3 nights, and it was an ideal place for us. Kids had their own room, and the beds and linens were very comfortable! The bathroom is huge and has a washing machine. The kitchen is very well stocked. The owner Elias is so kind...he even met us at 8:00am to let us into the house early. Everything is very clean. And the views outside are beautiful! You have the ocean, a pond, birds, sheep and lambs.
There are 2 rooms each with double beds downstairs, and plenty of beds upstairs, but as the stairs are very steep I wouldn't recommend having little kids upstairs (or anyone who has to get up to use the bathroom a lot at night). It worked great for us, though...my 16 year old loved having her own area upstairs.
Very reasonable price. Highly recommend this place!
