Description

At lodge Brekka you sure have a warm welcome, independent of weather. You'll feel comfortable in the nice open space of the house and the big terrace around, enjoying the privacy of the site. The inviting geothermal tub is discretely placed in the bushes of the birch midst in the pure nature. The location is superb with a great view on the bay and the Atlantic Ocean below with ever changing shades of light, and the mountain Sulur in the other direction. A little creek makes the border of the property as it flows by in the gully. The lodge Brekka (means slope) is a beautiful new house, finished in 2013. It is sitting nicely in the hillside, hence the name. For 6 people you have a lot of space, Additionally there is a double bed couch in the open space upstairs, ideal for kids. That way Brekka can accommodate 8 people on request. Brekka is a gorgeous place to stay, a real retreat from Reykjavik, "fairly close but far enough". The house is approximately 45 minutes drive from Reykjavík,

“A brilliant place to get away from it all.”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

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.

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”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2014

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.
