Description of the area in more detail:
Our cottages sit right under the majestic Pétursey mountain and provide a fantastic view in all directions. There are numerous attractions and points of interest nearby, for example the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano which erupted in 2010, the Mýrdalsjökull and Sólheimarjökull glaciers with the possibility of a glacier jeep tour or a glacier walking tour, the beautiful Dyrhólaey peninsula which is one of the most famous landmarks of Iceland and a favorite nesting areas for the cute puffins in the summer months, as well as beautiful black beaches, basalt columns and sea stacks. 20 km east of Pétursey is a sweet little village of Vík with a supermarket, post office and a gas station, while 16 km west of Pétursey is the famous Skógar folk museum and a waterfall. You are welcome to take a pleasant walk to the beach or take a ride down there on the back of a renown Icelandic horse which you can rent on the neighboring farm. If you prefer to visit us in winter, there is a high possibility that you will be treated to a spectacular northern lights show.
And if you would rather take it slowly and just relax in the cottage and on the premises of the farm, you are welcome to sit on a patio and read a book, grill outside or have a picnic, walk up to the top of the Pétursey mountain or visit the sweet calves in our cow house and maybe feed them fresh carrots from our own carrot fields.
- Please book bed linen/towel or bring your own.
You can also bring a sleeping bag.
- The key to the cottage can be picked up on the farm, in the white house on the left. Just come to the door where we will greet you and hand you the key with any extra information you might need.

This was a stunning place to spend 3 nights and use as our "home base" while our family of 4 explored areas along the south coast. Easy 15 minute drive to Vik, beautiful views from every window, lovely hosts, welcoming cows and sheep, and great space (2 bedrooms, kitchenette, dining area, living room, bathroom). We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Me and my family stayed 4 nights in the cottage at Pétursey. The cottage has 2 bedrooms with one double and two single beds. The cottage was rather spacious and the kitchen was equipped really good.

The cottage was in a good location to admire all the natural beauty in the area. It was very quiet and had a view of the farms and the ocean.
It is a spacious cottage for 4 people with good beds. We were not satisfied with the kitchen equipment as there was no frying pan, two cups had a crack/broken ear and the handles of one pan were broken. The kitchen could also have been cleaner, as we still encountered a lot of crumbs in the cabinets.
Upon arrival you can call the owner, who will then come from the nearby farm and bring the key.

We ended up in a different bungalow with cows right behind us. Location was great for many sites especially the puffins in season! The unit is very clean, nicely decorated and very bright and sunny (we had great weather), had one of the biggest shower stalls in Iceland but would be most comfortable for 4 or less people as my son said the futon was not too comfortable, as we had 5 people. It had a coffee maker with pods included as well as tea bags. Owner, Bergur, was very nice!

Lovely place to stay near Vik. We stayed at the end of August. Easy to find with Google maps.
Clean & plenty of space.
Owner did not respond to email / text but answered when we phoned so if you need to contact best to do by calling him.

We had a wonderful stay in this spacious cosy cabin just outside of Vik, within easy reach of the black sand beaches and their puffins. Vik apparently averages the highest rainfall in Iceland, and when the views of the glacier disappeared behind the clouds we enjoyed a warm evening tucked up in our cabin watching the weather raging outside. The cabin was warm, well equipped and peaceful, with a very helpful host.

We are so happy we got to stay at this property. It was SUCH a beautiful location and we loved being able to visit the cows and sheep and see an Icelandic farm in action. The cabin itself was perfect. Warm when we arrived and very clean. Our hostess was very welcoming.

We really enjoyed staying here, the bungalows are cosy and situated on a farm, with great access for hiking trails. We saw the Aurora above the Katla icecap behind the bungalows. We stayed here with a toddler, and although no specific facilities for kids we had no problems with him in a normal bed, and the owners let him see cows in the milking shed! Would definitely stay again.

I had a great stay at this property. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen and plenty of space for a couple of friends. It is located in a beautiful and serene setting that is an ideal base for visiting Vík and the surrounding attractions. There is a convenient continental breakfast available at the guest house across the street. The hosts are extremely friendly & helpful and have a very cute dog. I only wish I were able to stay longer!

We liked the bungalo a lot. It is nicely located at the bottom of a mountain plus sea view, well equipped, and remote enough to ensure a traffic-free, relaxing stay.

very much it is pleasant to stop in this place, there were already 4 times. Close to capes, an ideal arrangement for photographers.

We stayed with friends two February nights in this lovely cottage, hosted by friendly family running small farm nearby, and their dutiful dog. The house was clean and warm, with enough space for four (five) people to stay comfortable, and kitchen with all necessary utensils. Location of the property was just right to see the beach and waterfalls round Vik. If you'll need to stay in the vicinity, and this place will be available - look no further!

Faultless. Stayed for two nights in Oct. Fantastic location, stunning views. The cabin was perfect, warm, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Would love to stay again.

Great place! Very nice and accomodating owners. The cabins are beautiful and well equipped. Think the cabins were a good price and value.
Nice house with great views. Glacier on one side and the Atlantic on the other. Friendly and helpful owners. New and clean but house was quite small and not many places to sit in the living room. We were out all day long so it didn't bother us, but in bad weather it will be very snug for 4 people.
