Arguably some of the best-situated cottages on Snæfellness peninsula are for rent in Hellnar (2 hours driving from Reykjavik).
You can rent the cottage Garðabúð (49 m2). There is a unique 360-degree view on the sea and the glacier and the terrain goes all the way down to the coastline.
The cottage holds three bedrooms (three double beds and one single bunker above), a kitchen, a living room, a bathroom and a big outside terrace with furniture and barbecue (gas). There is a high chair for babies and a small playground outside.
NEW high-speed INTERNET!!!

--- Minimum 2 nights booking is available ----

Garðabúð is located next to two other separate cottages (approx 200-300 m between). They are all placed remotely on the private property in Hellnar and have a view to the ocean and to the beautiful and mysterious glacier, Snæfellsjökull.
It is really a peaceful and not windy place where the sunset is long and beautiful.
Next to the cottages is the famous "Maríulind" source it is believed to give a healing effect to those who drink the water. There is a beautiful trekking path through the lava between Hellnar and Arnarstapi (3 km walking), which provides ample opportunity for bird and whale watching.
Nearby are several hiking paths, beaches, horse riding, swimming pool, bird and seal watching, Cafes and Restaurants, golf and organized sightseeing and snowmobile on Snæfellsjökull and caving tours.
There are 1 cafe called Fjoruhusid and a Restaurant at Fosshotel Hellnar so you don't have to spend your time cooking.

The house is a little bit hidden and some of the signs to the house were broken so we had to search.
The place is really lovely. We enjoyed it very much.

Clean. Scenic location with a front view of the sea and a back view of the ice-capped Snaefellsjoekull. Low light pollution. We were able to see aurora from the cottage window.

Response from Christine Blin
Thanks for the nice review. It is amazing that you could see the aurora lights in the summertime!

Prettig eenvoudig huis voorzien van o.a. WiFi, BBQ en oven. mooi uitzicht op de zee en bij helder weer op de Snaefalljokul. Start van de prachtige wandeling naar Arnarstapi.
