“Fantastic Cabin in great location!”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

I stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and 4 friends, and we all loved it! Hugely recommended! It's a lovely cabin, extremely comfortable and nice to relax in. The hot tub is a brilliant extra, we spent every evening in there! It snowed on us and we saw the northern lights from in that hot tub! And a wonderful view of the Icelandic scenery. Location wise, it's about an hour and 45 minutes from Reyjevik and well located for exploring the countryside. There's a supermarket and shops about 40 minutes drive away (general tip for Iceland: if you're planning on a few drinks during your holiday, stock up in duty-free. Alcohol is pricey over there!)

Tom, you're absolutely right about the drinks, it's best to buy these in the duty free at the airport while the bags are slowly appearing on the conveyor belt... Just a little correction: Brekka is only 45 min. drive from Reykjavik, taking the tunnel under the bay, but 1h 30' from the KEF airport. Of course it depends on the speed you're driving:-). Apart from this, to make the buying in more efficient on the way to Brekka, I've listed up a proposal for groceries/menus which I've now started to send to the guests of Brekka and our other houses.

“Awesome”

This was our first trip to Iceland - an amazing country, and just so pleased we chose to stay at Brekka. A truly stunning location overlooking the fjord and mountains - the accomodation is of a high quality throughout, with a warm welcome from the owner.

We did a fair amount of driving to see the sights (Golden circle etc), but the best was simply staying at Brekka and taking in the local sights - a walk up to see Gulfoss waterfall was well worth it. Going to the stunning Snaefellness peninsula is also recommended and easily reachable. We were just so lucky with the weather and even returned home with a sun tann!

You will definitely need a car staying at Brekka, but not sure whether a 4WD is really necessary for general travel. If you are also thinking of visiting Iceland I would definitely recommend Brekka (am just so pleased we chose this awesome location and skipped Rejkavik). Enjoy!

“"A Perfect Star-Rating Lodge"”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

If there's such a thing as 100 star-rating, I would definitely give Brekka Lodge that rating. First of all, my colleagues and I would like to extend our utmost gratitude to Mr. Jón Baldur Þorbjörnsson for a warm welcome and for letting us stay at this awesome cabin with such a magnificent view. It absolutely exceeded our expectation. Everything is well-organized and the cabin is well-equipped. Very clean and spacious. Mr. Jón Baldur Þorbjörnsson was very helpful, he provided us with all the indispensable information and instructions on everything. If you are on your quest to capture the earth's most dazzling phenomenon (The Aurora Borealis), I highly recommend to stay at Brekka, definitely the perfect spot. We were so lucky to have witnessed Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) during our stay there, it was indeed a dream come true. If I were to go back to Iceland for another vacation, I wouldn't have any second thoughts to book Brekka again. We can't thank Mr. Jón Baldur Þorbjörnsson enough for his hospitality! We really enjoyed our stay there.

“Brekka is absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Recently I have stayed at Brekka and I don’t know where to start, it was such a lovely holiday! Brekka is absolutely beautiful I keep saying the pictures I saw on-line don’t justify how amazing this place really is. It is very well equipped and all the little details is what impressed me the most. You have the most stunning views all around the house with sunrise and sunset to be seen across the beautiful Fjord! It is just divine to come home after a long day of exploring to chill and relax in the hot tub. Also all the instructions from Jon were brilliant, I never booked a holiday house and felt that welcome and well informed! I will defiantly go back and also check out the other two houses offered by Jon and Anja!

“Amazing country and fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We loved our brief visit to Iceland and Brekka was the perfect base to explore the local area. it was comfortable and warm and the hot tub in the snow was magical. We were even lucky enough to see the Northern Lights from the deck. Jon was very helpful and we would love to come back and visit again some time. We would definitely stay at Brekka if we came back.
