Hildur is a very thoughtful host who provides all of the information we needed ahead of staying, which helps plan exactly how to find and access the accommodation and make the most of the locality. There was a minor problem when we stayed in that the cleaning from the previous visitors hadn't been done, I called Hildur and the cleaners were there within 10 minutes - excellent response!
The property itself is particularly lovely downstairs, spacious and open and the location is stunning. We enjoyed the cafe at the beach and I had an amazing early morning run through the lava field. Would love to come back again.
The accomodation was very nice and everything as described - thank´s for the beautiful days!
Great communication with Helga we get a nice brochure before,
with a lot of information about the appartment and sightseeing spots in the neighbourhood. Great view over the ocean and clif! Very nice and big appartment. One thing we where missing that was the kitchen towels and pepper :)
The cottage at Hellnar was amazing. It was clean, warm, spacious, and beautiful. The peninsula was other worldly and I would come back in a heartbeat. Hildur was extremely helpful and sent us an entire packet that included directions, helpful information about the house, and activities in the surrounding area. This place is a gem, and I would highly recommend it to anyone that likes the outdoors, coastal views, and a warm bed.
Het huis is een ideale uitvalsbasis voor het schiereiland. Hellnar is een dorpje met beperkt aantal huizen, waardoor je echt het gevoel hebt van de wijdsheid en het desolate van IJsland. Tip : ga zeker eens de bekende vissoep eten in het cafeetje in de haven; die is echt zo goed als overal geschreven wordt. Ook de wandeling tussen de lavavelden, vanuit Hellnar naar Anarstapi is een must (vertrekkend van aan de haven), zeker voor de minder ervaren (berg)wandelaars, want het gaat over licht glooiend terrein, dus niet te lastig, en je wandelt langs de zee en de kliffen. Zeker de moeite!
In deze cottage is er een goed comfort. De iets duurdere prijs wordt voornamelijk bepaald door het beperkte aanbod in deze streek, daardoor is het weinige comfortabele wat er is, relatief duur. Maar, alles wat beloofd was was aanwezig, je kan er comfortabel koken, er is een verzorgd servies, ...
Ideaal om met 4 of maximum 5 te verblijven. Met meer personen is de ruimte in het salon te beperkt en ook de badkamer is mini.
Het is een gezellige cottage, waar je graag terug komt na een wandeling of verkenning van de streek.
The house in Hellnar was immaculate! The surroundings are spectacular so that even sitting in the living room you can look at the incredible views. We had a great time at the house and exploring the area. Everything was very easy from check in, to all the supplies in the house, until check out!
The house is situated in a beautiful location, very close to the sea. It is very warm and comfortable furnishings. It is excellent for exploring the peninsula. We would not hesitate to stay there again, thank you Helga!
