“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.
“Never wanted to leave, a magical place.” We absolutely loved this cabin, our entire experience was top notch from start to finish. The lovely ladies who own the cabin were so welcoming and were excellent at all correspondents.
I would highly recommend this cabin, it's quirky, well equipped, cosy and made for a holiday of a lifetime. Loved the tub!!!!
“Well equipped cottage in a great location to enjoy beautiful Iceland” My wife and I had one of our best vacations ever at this beautiful cottage. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all of our meals. The warm couches and the sunny deck were perfect for relaxing after a days adventure and a hearty dinner. Every day the neighboring herd of Icelandic horses visited at the fence in the front yard. The cottage is near the end of a private road that ends at a beautiful mountain valley that we spent hours exploring. It is about a thirty minute drive to the town of Mosfellsbaer where there is a market that sells wonderful Icelandic lamb, a fishmonger and a great bakery/coffee shop.
From the cottage we took daily trips to explore all the wonders of southern and western Iceland.
