“Absolutely amazing!!” A fantastic house. The location was so great, no highway and no sound except from the nature itself. This house is magical and has everything you need (and more). The kitchen is very spacious and good facility to cook and we saved a lot of money on restaurant bills.
The owner was very helpful and told us all about where to go and what to see. Also very good information about how everything works and functions in the house.
Thanks Heidrun and Robert for a absolutely wonderful stay. The only negative thing about it all was that we did not realize how fantastic the house and the place was until we arrived so, we didn't stay long enough.
One thing we want to mention is the price. We have staid on the south coast near the Golden Circle in many summerhouses. Comparing the price and the standard, this house exceeded our expectations and also more than plenty of attractions to visit on the west coast. Reykholt, Stykkisholmur, Borgarnes.
Akranes and only one hour to Reykjavik. We visited the fantastic swimming pool in Borgarnes every day and it was even open early in the morning until ten o´clock in the evening. It was so, so nice and relaxing.
Everything was perfect, clean and well organised.
We are already planning to come back next fall.
..and thanks Robert, for the late phone call to remind us, to look up in the sky for the Northern lights, it was magical.
Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic... !!!

“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.
“Cozy cabin with fantastic views” We spent three nights at the house, and loved every moment. We were well prepared for the isolation, and thankfully took the advice we were given to bring plenty of food with us. What surprised us was how well equipped and cozy the house was; we had been expecting something much more basic. We enjoyed making day trips around the area, and everyone (even the teenagers) enjoyed the sense of escape and immersion into an entirely new natural environment. The views over the water are lovely.
“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!!!!
