Álfasteinn is great. Traditional design meets modern construction to provide an attractive, light, and comfortable vacation retreat. Our kids loved the toys and drawing paper that had been thoughtfully left behind. The private location on the ocean surrounded by grazing fields was great as well.

Really nice house and amazing location! In a perfect location for the Snæfellsjökull National Park and other points of interest that were on our bucket list. Very well-kept and clean house with a lovely open plan living / kitchen / dining area and view of Kirkjufell and the sea out the front windows. Also had a very cool mezzanine bedroom.
Host was very accommodating and provided good directions and local recommendations.
