“The house by the sea is AMAZING! My family and I enjoyed staying here very much! The location is very private and we were able to get some much-needed rest and relaxation in without anyone around us. I really liked the fact that you had to drive far into the property to get to the house - we were isolated but in a good way!!! Exactly what we were looking for. The scenery is amazing and we were able to see seals right in the backyard all 3 mornings that we were there. My 8-year-old daughter truly enjoyed this, as well as walking along the beach areas looking for shells. I enjoyed having my morning coffee and looking out at the stunning scenery of the fjord and mountains. Sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. The house itself has been restored in such a beautiful way; the updates were great! It was immaculately clean and we had everything we needed there. Sigrun and her husband made us feel totally welcome and answered any questions we had very quickly which was very helpful. We also got to meet and interact with the horses on the farm. We will definitely return to this house by the sea!!!”
A two rooms private apartment on a friendly farm. Great view over sea and mountains. On the farm it is possible, for a price, to take a guided riding tour. It is for beginners or people with little experience, that like to try the Icelandic horses. An experience that you will not forget as the Icelandic horse is famous for its qualities. Guests can also hike in a beautiful landscape. Only 40 minutes drive to Reykjavík and ten minutes drive to the nearest town, Akranes. Welcome!
“Our stay was great. She was very welcoming and the apartment was cozy and clean with great views. Our host made sure we had everything we needed and was always available if we needed her. There wasn't much around and required about a 20 minute drive to go to the shops but I liked that. Not amazing cooking facilities but enough. I would still recommend here.”
Gunnu Hús by Meðalfellsvatn (address Meðalfellsvegur 14, Kjós) The lakeside cottage nestles at the foot of Medalfell mountain and the garden leads right down at the water´s edge. The views are spectacular, of the lake and its surrounding mountain scape; it is a place of pure tranquillity. It has 3 bedrooms and an open plan kitchen and sitting room.
“We really enjoyed the Gudrun chalet. The explanations for finding it are very good, and we easily got there despite a nocturnal arrival. Everything is very clean and well heated, which is good considering the outside temperatures! It seemed larger than imagined with the photos and descriptions and the windows on the lake offer an absolutely splendid view, changing with the weather and the light. To do it again we would spend even more time at the chalet, rather than moving every day. It is well located, provides easy access to the thingvellir park (very nice road), as well as on the Reykiavik side. We did our shopping at the Kronan in Mosfellsbaer (about 30 minutes by car) We would definitely recommend Gudrun's cottage.”
