I'm totally in love with this place. Wish I had more time. It would be nice if i stayed here for more than a day. The house had everything that you need and also great scenary. A lot of space and fully equipped kitchen. Everything was new and clean. It is not too far away from the city but it was so peaceful. And also family friendly. Big space for children to play.
Thor was so friendly, helpful and polite.
I would totally recommend this place to everyone. You wont regret staying here.
If i get a chance i will definitely stay here again.
This place is beautiful. One of the best we have stayed in during our travels around the world. Very clean, but most importantly excellent location and unbeatable views. Thor was a wonderful host, the most attentive we have ever experienced. If you are considering this place, think no more. Just book it!
My son had read all the reviews on the beauty of Hlidsnes House 1 and the genuine kindness and helpfulness of Thor Saari and therefore booked in my name this place... so I went there fully trusting his organizational talent, and guess what?
What a superb choice!
Hlidsnes House 1 was the highlight of our stay in Reykjavik! My wife, me and the "kids", we were all highly delighted to spend two splendid days there enjoying the birds and the sea... what a fantastic vacation :-)
Later - just for fun - I read some of the reviews and I can assure you that even the highest praise won't really come close enough to the truth... we're talking here about something to be experienced :-)
Lovely house on the ocean with great views of the Reykjavik and Esja to the north, Harfnarfjordor to the east and the Reykjanes peninsula to the south. House was clean with comfortable furniture. Loved the well-equipped kitchen. Great communication from owner, who worked with us on our arrival time and keeping in touch to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Would stay here again on our next visit to the Reykjavik area.
awesome! The house was amazing. Cosi and warm. Great music and books. Great view. Ideal to grab a book and go outside nearby the lakes to read it.
too bad it was too freezing to try the jacuzi.
The house is very big, can host 4 kids plus one couple. It is well heated with stunning view. Owner kept the house in great condition with excellent details, such as spices for cooking in kitchen. Laundary and dishwashing detergents... Playground is towards the beach, lots and lots of birds. One will not feel like in the city, yet it is rather convenient towards city. We book this one so it is convenient towards bluelagoon and airport, with peace to relax at end of our vacation. Best to have a rental car if you want to rent this house. It served well our purpose. We have nothing to complain.
We found the house to be well equipped and a very cosy place to base ourselves for a 'getting to know Iceland' kind of week, with our 7 year old son. The peninsula itself is a very relaxing place and is teaming with birdlife. The hot tub is fantastic to have at night time, it was moon lit when I was using it, and magical. Thor was very friendly and helpful to us, and I'd recommend his house to anyone wanting to 'get away from it all', but still remain close to Reykjavik and a good number of sights, within a few short day trips away.
