Listing was accurate - nice surroundings in the Westfjords. Everything was according to descriptions and pics. Nice neighbor gave us the keys and all went well.
Such a great time at iris's house! The house is bright and comfy. We spent several nighthawk there and really enjoyed Bolungarvik and isaforther. Highly recommend!
This bungalow is very well located in the magnificent village of Bolungarvík. The house itself is nice with stunning view from all the windows. The owner is well organized and was very easy to deal with.
While we found the house a little bit dusty when we arrived, we would recommend it anytime.
We *loved* staying at this house in the Westfjords. The first thing I noticed when I walked in are views of the ocean from both the front and back windows. The house actually felt brighter than it looks in several of the pictures, though this would vary depending on the day and season of course.
We were there in the summer and the road up to Mt. Bolafjall was open. You can hike or drive up it, and the view from the top is amazing. There are other neat hikes and walks in town (though beware the tern nesting near the maritime museum) and lots more to do in Isafjördur, including great places to eat.
The house itself s wonderful. Great blackout shades in the bedrooms, comfortable beds, spotlessly clean, and possibly the best rental house kitchen I've ever used. Iris was helpful and responsive with all of our questions. Highly recommended!
Thanks Kate, we are very happy that you felt so well here and had a great time in Bolungarvik.
We loved this house! Lots of space, everything we needed was there, fresh, comfortable, nice rooms with good beds. Our daughter lover her own room ;-). Friendly and helpful housekeeper. A place to come back! Good value for your money.
Very comfortable house, in a quiet, beautifull and interesting environment. Great view from both - the front and back - windows!! Nice place to relax after a long walk through the country side.
Nice place to stay at the Westfjords.
Cozy and tidy house, you have everything you need there.
Although Iris wasn't there, everything was well organized.
We arrived later than expected in Bolungarvik but getting the keys was very easy and Iris' family was extremely helpful and friendly. The house is very nice and we were very comfortable there with another couple and two young babies. We had a little trouble figuring out the washer/dryer and stove, but I think it's just a bit different from American style appliances - I would recommend leaving an instruction sheet for guests. Over all, we would stay here again in this beautiful part of Iceland and the whole experience was friendly, smooth, and easy.
Hi Jonah, es ist schön, dass Ihr Euch wohlgefühlt habt. Ich danke für die Anregung mit der Waschmaschine und werde eine Beschreibung in Englisch machen.
This is definitely the best cottage at the end of the world! Everything you need for a real home away from home. Sleeps 3-4. The view is spectacular and there's lots of space. I had a horrible cold when I arrived and I was able to camp out for a day and make homemade soup which helped a lot. Basically the home is perfect and it was super easy to communicate with Iris and get into and out of the cottage.
Bolungarvik the town is tiny. Isafjordur is also tiny. Don't expect anything to be open when you want it to...with our schedule of being out on tours we were literally unable to spend money at most places because of limited hours. We took the bus back and forth between the towns but recommend having a car...the bus runs infrequently and is fairly expensive.
We loved it, but we love really remote and tiny places.
What an amazing house in the Westfjords! Iris was super at communicating with us and even helped us find the most wonderful fishing excursion. We loved the layout and the view from the kitchen window was fabulous. We loved the hiking and the NATO communication center was the most breathtaking view during our whole stay in Iceland. Wish we could have stayed longer.
You are welcome Iris ! Merci beaucoup ! It was a pleasure & I hope to see you next time :-)
