This house was our cosy home for 3 days in October 2021 and we really enjoined our stay here! It´s aperfect place to elax and to explore Snaefellsness. Everything inside is perfect, the kitchen well-equiped, the beds very comfortable, the style in living-room beautiful. One of the most beautiful houses that I have ever rented in so many years of travelling in Iceland - I am sure, I will come back. And a special Bonus: The owner was sending messages to us when she knews that the polarlights will come next night. Brilliant Service - Thanks a lot for all this. Five Stars will be not enough for this house. Thorsten/Germany

What a beautiful house on such an amazing location. Like a dream came true... Everything in the house was perfect. If you love privacy and isolation for your vacation, this house is perfect. Couldn't be better. It's a pity we only stayed two days. Hope to come back one day. 10/10!

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.
