The house is also equipped with a bathroom and shower. All houses come with their own hot tubs so it would be an excellent idea to soak in there after a good day of traveling around the west of Iceland.
Thurranes is an ideal center-point for tours around Snæfellsnes peninsula and the Western fjords.
There are also many interesting and historical places close to Thurranes. There is a variety of hiking trails around the area and the place is an excellent location for bird watching. The Settlement museum in Laugar in Sælingsdalur is interesting and also the Viking museum at Eiríkstaðir in Haukadalur. A tour with the ferry Baldur sailing at Breiðafjörður visiting the island Flatey is also a great idea. Should you wish to get further information about what to do, your host, Jon Ingi is happy to help you plan your trips.

Wonderful place to base an exploration of the eastern end of the Westdijords. Set on a large farm with great sunsets from the hot tub! We were three and it was great - cooked din eta and prepped take-away lunches for our day trips and hikes. Quick trip to Holmavik for whale watching - saw about a dozen humpbacks! Lovely stay - nice find

We had a wonderful experience at the Thurranes Cottage 1. This was our last night in our drive around the Westfjords. We cooked an amazing meal, soaked in the tub with the wind howling, and rescued a sheep who had his horns twisted and stuck in the pasture fence. Thank you Jon for adding one more amazing memory to our recent adventure in Iceland.

The cottage was very nice. It is very well equiped and cosy. We spent some great time in it and were delighted to have a hot tub to enjoy the fresh air at night.

The cottage is located, very nice and quiet and has a beautiful fview to a nearby mountain and the water. The equipment is simple, but there is everything you need. We have stayed there for a week, two adults with three kids and the space in the cottage is comfortable. Even with a bit of a bumpy start, since there were no sheets on the beds when we arrived in the middle of the night we enjoyed the stay and the very uncomplicated help of Jon very much. The absolute highlight after a long day on the road is the hot tub on the terasse, where you can just relax and watch the sunset.

It's s an okay cabin, but it would benefit from an oven and a shower with a bit more pressure. It might also make sense to lower the chlorine content in the hot tub water.
Other than that, a very pleasant stay and a very nice and helpful host!

We had a wonderful night in this cute cabin, all very clean and a nice hotpot. Wish we could have stayed longer. I would recommend more than 1 night, great location!

The accommodation was very cozy. The cottage was large enough (we have been 5 people), fully equipped with nice terrace and hot tub outside. The place was close to main road and located in nice valley. The renter was also very nice. I recommend the accommodation.

Mjög notalegur bústaður á mjög fallegum stað. Áttum þrjá dásamlega daga, svo margt fallegt og áhugavert að sjá, landslagið er fegurðin ein, kyrrð og ró allt í kring. Þetta er hinn fullkomni staður fyrir þá sem elska náttúruna og sækjast eftir smá frið frá áreitni daglegs lífs.

Nice and warm home with very nice hosts. Jon was so helpful and helped us with the heavy hot pot cover (too heavy for girls ;-)) Lovely views too.

This was an amazing stay! My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights only, if we had more days off we would have loved to stay longer. We were really lucky with the weather and mixed some sightseeing around the area with sunbathing and relaxation at the cottage. We both have very stressful jobs and desperately needed to be able to relax an we certainly achieved that here. The cottage was clean and cozy, the jacuzzi amazing, owner was very friendly and helpful, the cottage had everything we needed and the view was breathtaking! For some people it might be a negative thing not having WiFi, bu for us that was a plus because we didn?t have all the distractions tha we have everyday. Definitely recommend this place!

We had a very good time in this bungalow, clean, well equipped, great spaces and especially beautiful the hot tub to relax after a day, often in the rain

We were 3 friends and my 5yo son traveling in Iceland Westfjords. Very warm and clean cottage, same as on pictures, comfortable for 4, very good beds, the perfect hot tub that was ready for us. An adorable view outside! The host is very responsive! We arrived at night, so the host couldn't meet us, but unfortunately, bed linen was missing, so we had to contact. The host resolved it fast. There is no hairdryer and wifi, please note. All amenities are new and in perfect condition (everything for cooking, fridge, bath), also coffee was provided by request. Thank you! Wish you plenty of happy guests! We would return!

Æðislegur staður og flott útsýni. Bústaðurinn hreinn og notanlegur. Potturinn var frábær. Við gistum í 3 nætur fjögurra manna fjölskylda um páskana og allt var til fyrirmyndar.

Incredible place with a magical quality. The family is very nice and helpful. It is a stunning location (even in wintertime!)
The hottub was so luxurious and the cottage came with all of the amenities. Such a wonderful and unforgettable experience! Thank you so much for that.

We rented this cottage with a family of 5 for 3 nights and loved it! Clean, fresh, beautiful environment. Super quiet, Hot tub was a luxury.
We did two day trips: one to the West Fjords and one to the Snaefellsnes peninsula, both fabulous!
