It was our best airbnb for the whole vacation! It's very quiet place with gorgeous views that you can enjoy through huge windows. You feel like home there, would definitely stay again.

A convenient location after driving the left portion of west fjords, more affordable than options in holmavik. Everything was great except that there were a number of flies (it is amongst vast pastures so I guess this is inevitable). Plenty of clean linen available but they were pretty old, useful nonetheless.

The cabin was great, and had everything we needed. Each part of Iceland is beautiful in it's own way, so do yourself a favor and don't skip the West Fjords. It is raw, and beautifully (almost)untouched nature.

If you want peace and calm in the middle of nowhere this is the place for you. We stayed two days in this cabin and had a wonderful experience. A bit difficult to find but very interesting if you want to rest and enjoy nature.

Olafur's cabin is located in peaceful and serene surroundings. It is quite some distance away from the town of Holmavik. We had a one-night stay here. Thank you, Olafur, for letting us stay in your cabin!

Ólafurs cabin was the best accomodation on our whole trip - it's very calm and beautiful there - maybe you should have a offroad car to get there (we didn't, but also managed it). the hut is well equipped - even with your own house falcon =) if you want to spend your time at the westfjords, we absolutely recommend this cabin!
