We had a wonderful time at the cottage during our recent visit. It was the perfect place for us to explore the peninsula as well as relax and recharge after two weeks in Iceland.

I would highly recommend the cottage as a place to stay. It's equipped with everything you need to ensure you have a very comfortable, enjoyable stay.

We really enjoyed our time at Norduras. It is set in a beautiful landscape with a panorama view on the lake with the mountains beyond. Lonely, though only a few minutes drive from Stykkisholmur. It has everything you need and is nicely furnished. It even comes with a Sauna. :)

Beautiful house very well located to explore the Snæfellsness peninsula. The house is very spacious, the beds large and comfortable. There is a beautiful view of the lake from the living room upstairs and mountains all around. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms clean and modern. We will be going back.

We loved staying here. The location was amazing- on the side of a hill overlooking a lake. We had the experience of being out in the countryside, with the convenience of being 10 minutes away from town.

The house was clean and spacious and beautifully kept. It was great for a large party with two full bathrooms. Downstairs the shower and huge Jacuzzi tub were separate from the toilet, allowing even more ease of sharing space. The kitchen was well stocked and the owner was kind and responsive.

I wish I could have both stayed here all day soaking up the peace and beauty AND run around seeing the local sights.

It is a very nice cottage in a wonderful location, the views are amazing. However, even though it is well laid out, comfortable, roomy and has all the amenities you need, it was somewhat unkempt, with a few things broken or not working properly, and really not very clean. Also missing were basic things for a short term rental such as toilet paper for one day, dishwashing gel and rubbish bags.

Við vorum 17 manns, þar af níu krakkar, þarna eina helgi og var mjög rúmt um okkur. Frábær aðstaða og allt til alls. Fallegt útsýni og umhverfið skemmtilegt til útiveru. Mæli hiklaust með þessum bústað fyrir fjölskyldur, bæði stórar og litlar.

Frábært að heyra. Takk fyrir komuna :-)

glæsilegt hús fór vel um alla gott að haf aðgang að þvottavél og þurrkara þó var ókostur að geta ekki gengið um umhverfið sem er mjög fallegt.

Response from Anna Björk Norðdahl
Frábært að heyra og takk fyrir komuna. :-) Leitt að heyra að þið hafið ekki getað gengið um umhverfið því það eru fullt af merktum gönguleiðum í gegnum Sauraskóg. Eitthvað sem við þurfum greinilega að athuga. Takk fyrir ábendinguna :-)
