Our apartment is on the first floor in our house and it is very comfortable. One bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. The apartment is located in Rif, a small town in Snæfellsnes and it has view of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. Rif is famous for Artic tern
“The house was beautiful. Parking is free opposite the property. It felt so cosy and warm with the fairy lights. Everything I needed was available in the house except for washing machine/dryer. From fully equipped kitchen to a spacious living room with comfortable sofa and 6 seater dining table and cosy & quiet bedroom. The house is spacious and well maintained. We drove from Reykjavik and some parts of the downslopes nearer to Rif were slippery and need to drive slowly. Once in Rif, the houses were beautifully decorated with Christmas lights. We didn't explore the town as we had to head to our next stay near Asolffskali. Definitely a recommended stay in Rif!☺”
Apartment or rooms for total 4 people. fully equipped Kitchen. Price is per person. The apartment is on the ground floor.
“This was such a fantastic weekend getaway from Reykjavik. About 2.5 hours drive at the end of Snaefellsnes, Olafsvik is a wonderful little seaside town with a lot of charm. I was just looking for a solo getaway where I could hike (Snaefellsjokull National Park is about 15-20 min drive), read and restore. This space was exactly what I needed; it's modern and has all the things you would need, including a comfortable bed.”
From the private wooden deck we have seen killer whales and dolphins. In the winter northern lights can be seen from the balcony. The seals are regular visitors and different species of seabirds are at home here. The house used to be the village grocery store but has been converted into two luxury apartments, perfect for couples or small families. Hellissandur is only 200 km from Reykjavík and the roads are excellent. You can choose between three beautiful scenic routes to get here.
“The place is really great. The beds are extremely comfortable, the view is breathtaking, with seals right below the balcony. We saw northern lights from the balcony and enjoyed the classical music. It is great to visit various places from here. When it is windy, it can get a little bit cool, so be sure to bring some warm socks if you plan to stay here in winter, then you will be totally fine. Communication was very easy and fast. The hosts are very friendly and cooperative if you have any special requests. Next time we visit Iceland we will definetly stay here again, but maybe a bit longer. :-)”
