- Very Good
Absolutely stunning house had everything you need. Beautiful location with views over the fjord and hills.Would have no hesitation in recommending here to any one. You would not be disappointed.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for this positive review -but apparently many people would agree with you... :-)
“Amazing stay, fabulous cottage in beautiful setting. Hard to beat.”
we had an absolutely amazing stay. The views are fabulous, the house is beautiful so warm inside with everything you could possible need for a self catering holiday in Iceland. Lots of information of places to go. We had a 4x4 which was needed this time of year and we visited lots of the places the trips do at only the cost of the petrol as the attractions are free. Would highly recommend for anybody wanting to go to Iceland and easily done on a budget if you have a car. The owners were very helpful before our arrival with lots of information before we arrived. And to top it all we saw the Northern lights twice, the first time on our approach to the cottage we pulled up on the road side, and another night over the cottage amazing. Would like to thank the owners for our wonderful stay and we would love to return in the future. Just a small tip if you follow the directions given even though the signs are only small if you look for the cottages on the left after the stated kilometres in the light or dark with the lights on they are easily spotted. You will realise after sight seeing around Iceland the signs are small so not to interfere with the natural outstanding beauty.
Owner's reply: Wonderful, we are very happy to hear of your positive experience. Yes, you're right, the signs are fairly small so they want overtake the scenery -but in our case too, since we're running our business of five outstanding houses, at great locations around the country, at a low profile: we don't want to have our enterprise too commercialized with too big signs or too much flair:-).
What an amazing location with beautiful views, the place to get away from it all, yet within easy reach of the capital. Brekka is modern and very clean with everything you need, its lovely and warm in the winter months and the hot tub is fab!! It's a great family house, yet great for couple's. Auja and Jon Baldur couldn't do enough to help. Thank you☺
Owner's reply: We're happy to have been able to give some advise where and when needed. I profit from having been a tourist guide in Iceland for 33 years now, and I gladly pass my experience on to our guests.
We stayed at Brekka for 4 nights. It was an outstanding choice and I would stay again, communication from Jon before arriving was great and the lodge was in fantastic shape and a great location.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your words, Kieran. We're happy to hear of your satisfaction with Brekka. It stimulates us to keep the standard as high as we can, with the results that our guests are happy, and therefore we're happy!
Could not ask for more. The lodge was gorgeous the fjord was breathtaking. Every 10 minutes the scenery changed with the sky and the light. Amazing
Owner's reply: Iceland -naturally!
“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.
Owner's reply: Man y thanks for these words. Reg furniture we fortunately normally have no damages of furniture or whatsoever -possibly a broken glass now and then. But in our practical info docs, that we send to all our customers after confirmation of the booking, we ask to report if anything happens that way, so that we can reprovide lacking things, or even charge for the repair of real damages.
“Wonderful house with spectacular views”
We loved our holiday in Iceland, and Brekka was a great place to stay. The house is fabulous - modern, clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The views are stunning. We loved the hot tub, of course, and the gas barbecue - out door cooking without fuss. Many of Iceland's attractions can be reached in a day trip. Our favourite in that area was the drive up to Langjökull glacier. The landlord is very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great stay, Jon.
