“Very nice and comfortable house to visit West Iceland and Reykjavik” Modern and comfortable house, ideal for six persons. Very nice and luxurious kitchen and bathroom. Spacious terrace with BBQ. Quiet and natural surroundings.
Good spot to visit West Iceland (Snaefellsnes, Eldborg, Stykkisholmur) and Reykjavik.
“A brilliant place to get away from it all.” Brekka Lodge is located in an amazing surrounding. It is perched on the side of a mountain. There were three other lodges some distance away. There was hardly any noise to be heard, apart from the occasional passing car at the bottom of the mountain or a bird. From the lodge you can see the ocean, green bushes as far as the eye can see and snow capped mountains in the distance. The views from each window of the lodge were wonderful.
The lodge itself is conveniently located so that you are able to see majority of the tourist sites by car. However, once you see the lodge, it's location, the scenery around and enjoy its' outdoor hot tub, you may not want too see the rest of the country.
The couple who own and run the place are very helpful and understanding. They will go out of their way to make your stay in their property a memorable one. For example, we arrived at the lodge at around 3:00am and they had kindly purchased some essentials for breakfast on our behalf.
The only negative thing I can think of from our perspective is that we could have done with another toilet as we were a large group.
I would highly recommend this lodge but would warn occupants to notify the owners of any broken furniture they come across so to avoid any confusion about who is responsible. If life permits, I would love to go back again in a few years time to enjoy the northern lights.
Part of north-west Europe, Iceland is famed for its dramatic glacial landscape and spectacular volcanic activity. Enjoy a city break in the famously clean capital, Reykjavik, or venture further into the wilderness on an action-packed adventure holiday and experience the stunning waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes and hot springs.

A Golden Circle' View to the Northern Lights!
I found this little chalet with a fantastic view, it had all the amenities that we wanted and some ‘ Hot tub ‘ on the veranda so when the northern lights came we just sat and watched with amazement, would certainly recommend to anyone. Clean tidy, cosy great fire perfect! …
Cottage in Iceland spectacular views with hot tub
Lovely quiet cottage
We wanted to get out from town and stay somewhere a bit quieter. The cottage is only about 45 min from the centre of reykjavik and quite accessible, even better you are around 30 min from the centr thingvillir national park (golden circle)
The cottage is great, we only used one which was fine for two people but there are actually two separate cottages on the same plot (you get both for booking). The view from the decking is amazing into a valley with a lake, the hot tub was very nice too!
The instructions/Google map provided were perfect and took any stress out of the trip and Haukur was a brilliant host! We will be coming back to beautiful Iceland one day and will be definitely looking this place up again for when in that area. …
Extremely Well Situated In Downtown Reykjavik
The apartment was in a perfect location to the main strip of shops, restaurants and bars. Taxis and buses were literally on the doorstep. It was spotless and very well decorated.
Would 100% recommend. …
Luxurious, stunning house, great loction for visiting great sites, Golden Circle
Used this lovely property as a base of operations from which to explore and visit as much of this amazing island as possible during our 8 day stay.
The house is a little off the beaten track but this only enhances it's appeal.
Spacious and very comfortable (we were a family of Six adults and One younger teenager). The underfloor heating is a real plus and the Hot tub soothes away any and all stresses and strains a day's, or in our case Three day's travelling around the island can inflict. On one night in particular, we also were given the added treat while soaking of the Northern Lights above us...... nothing short of spectacular!
Bjorn is the most helpful and accommodating host and we all thank him very much for allowing us to stay at this wonderful place.
Superb holiday ! …
Central location, new listing.
Great place and great location
This apartment was everything you could ask for, it's in a great location with shops and an amazing bakery (Bakarameistarinn) just 5 minutes walk away. The apartment was spotlessly clean and everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Also just a short drive to the city centre. I would highly reccommend this place as it's amazing value for money. …
Stekkholt - Luxury Lodge
Amazing place, has every amenity you will need!!! Even managed to catch the northern lights in the hot tub!
Very welcoming, easy to get to, perfect location for those to explore more of south Iceland rather than just what’s in Reykjavík.
The host was very helpful and sent an information pack prior to going. Great place to stay! Highly recommended, we slept 8 comfortably. …
