Great memories
This was a beautiful home to use as our base camp as we discovered Iceland. It was well stocked, the beds were great, communication with the property owner was immediate and the home very comfortable. The heated floors were amazing! Would highly recommend this home.

An Epic Experience Outside Borgnares
For my second trip to Iceland, I was looking for a different experience in a different area of the country. I looked north to Borgarnes and found this inviting property outside the city. The pictures do perfect justice and tell the story of a lovely home with warm touches and comfortable furniture in a rural yet lush landscape, The hosts provide all the amenities you need and then some, are communicative, and provide plenty of information on the home and regional destinations, restaurants and businesses. The hot tub was very nice (if a touch to hot for our tastes) and the outdoor grilling area would be perfect n the warmer months. My only recommendation is that the dryer may need replacing as it takes forever to dry the laundry, especially towels. Perhaps I didn't use the proper cycle though :) I highly recommend this home and on next trip we will book one of their other properties in a different area if they will have us. Brian G

Iceland - Snaefellsness Peninsula House
This was a great place to stay. The property was exactly as described and the location is great for exploring the region. Far enough out for privacy but only 15-20 min from food and groceries in Borgarnes. Would definitely recommend! Phil and Karen B.

Great luxury rental
What a nice stay we had here. The house is very well equipped, we enjoyed the hot pot and the wonderful view of northern lights. We cooked several meals and it was very comfortable. The lockbox and key were a bit difficult to operate, and I wish there was a colander in the kitchen, but otherwise it was perfect :-)

5/5 Excellent

Perfect in all ways.
We stayed at both Bakki and Holt and both properties exceeded our expectations. They are quiet, surrounded by incredible nature, and so lovely. Both properties are fully equipped and were expertly cleaned. Heidi is responsive, friendly, and extremely helpful! If you’re visiting West Iceland, you’ve found your perfect place to stay. :)
