Have a memorable day at Snæfellsnes National Park with a snow scooter trip on top of the amazing Snæfellsjökull glacier, a visit to a natural hot spring like Deildartunguhver, or amazing waterfall like Hraunfossar. Other interesting places to visit are, the active volcano Grábrók, the crater Eldborg, historical viking landmark Reykholt, and taking a walk into the glacier Langjökull. You can stroll through the nearby cozy town of Borgarnes and drop by the cafe’s, museums, shops and restaurants. Take a drive to the capital Reykjavík with all its glory, nightlife and culture. Make a day trip on the Golden Circle and see the exploding Geysir with all its natural power, and drop by the historic Thingvellir National Park, and view close up the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall. In the evenings you will always come back home to this modern architecturally designed house in Helluskógur and probably the first thing you will do is, relax in the hot tub with a glass of red wine and enjoy the Northern Lights in the peace and quietness after a memorable day.

One of the best!
Having literally travelled around the world three times, and a fan of VRBO (Turnkey) this is one of the best! GREAT property, GREAT location, and even GREATER hosts - answered all questions quickly making planning a breeze.

Home Away from Home
This property is gorgeous. We wanted to move in and never leave. The main guest house is beautiful and the guest house was also a perfect addition for our needs, as a group of ten family members who had never been to Iceland before. The hosts communicated with me, as much and as often as I had questions - right from the time of booking. The location is remote and very private, which we really loved. However, if you stay here for a week like we did and expect to try to see as much of Iceland as possible, you are going to do a lot of driving every day. We loved the small town of Borgarnes, and the convenience to spending a day exploring the national park and peninsula. It is over an hour to Reykjavik, and most of the other attractions are a full day trip away from the house. That being said, it was great property for a group of ten to return to at the end of the day, as there was plenty of room to spread out and the kids especially loved the hot tubs. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for your warm hospitality!

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful holiday in a fabulous place
We're a family of 13 ranging from 85yrs to 5 mths. visiting in October/November. We were well catered for in every way. The main house is very modern and airy and very warm, the nearby secondary house, connected by a hidden path, is cosy and comfortable although the mezzanine level bedroom is very low and up a steep ladder, older kids would love it. Able to all eat together in the main house. And the hot tubs were well used ! Iceland is fabulous, amazing scenery wherever you go. We only managed the Pingvellir and Snæfellsjökull national parks and Reykavik. My husband also went diving which was amazing. All in all everybody loved it whatever the age.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for Large Families
When you need a place that sleeps (14) comfortably it's usually a big challenge. Boy did we luck out when this property was available for our chosen dates. Quality bedding & Cleanliness are a must and we weren't disappointed when we arrived. Highlights are: 1. Privacy Galore 2. Multiple Hot Tubs 3. Espresso Machine 4. Modern Laundry Room 5. Shower pressure was perfect 6. Bamboo Floors in Main house 7. Multiple outdoor Grills 8. Groceries nearby 9. Awesome Views 10. Attentive Owners, answers in minutes, no hours or days! Total "Do-Over"!!!

Beautiful house!
Lovely house and great location. Very clean and had a great view. 4 adults and 5 kids for comfortably. Only small downside was that there was only 1 bathroom (which was also the laundry room) for several people. Not a big deal, though, and we made it work!
