Just outside the national park. Snæfells-glacier is to the south - Atlantic ocean to the north. Seals and whales often spotted. The century old house is small but much renovated. Conventional radiators and heated floors. Friendly neighbourhood.

Perfect location to explore the peninsula. Julius is a great host. During our stay in Hellisandur we saw the best and worst weather Iceland has to offer. When it was pouring with rain, Julius' place was a cosy warm space to relax in. When the sun finally came out, we were just 15 mins' drive from an amazing whale watching spot down the road, as well as all the other main sights of Snaefells. Couldn't ask for anything more.

The house is brilliant, very secluded country stay. The amenities were a great help also and there were basics from tea and coffee to pasta and spices. There is so much to see and do in the area in terms of walks, scenery and history of the area. A great contrast to Reykjavik where we had been previously. Our only problem was that we couldn't stay longer!! Many thanks Júlíus!

Julius was extremely helpful during our stay in Helissandur. We had a fantastic time there and that was in part due to the flat we stayed in and the help from Julius! This place is located just outside a national park and we used it as a base to see and do so much, including whale watching, seeing the northern lights, hiking etc. The place was very clean and had everything we required. Julius was very responsive and helpful for any questions we had - I would highly recommend staying here for anyone wishing to visit Iceland!

Fantastic place to explore Snæfellsnes! The house is nice and warm, cozy, well equipped and just a short drive from everything you would want to see in the area. Thank you!

The cottage was a great place to stay located just minutes away from the national park. Julius provided detailed instructions on how to find and gain entry to the cottage along with a few treats to enjoy upon arrival. There is much to see and do in the area and this is a great base to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing. The cottage is well equipped with most anything one would need during their stay. There is no television but the wifi is pretty fast if one wants to download something to view on their laptop or tablet. The cottage is perfect for a couple traveling alone or with several children. With bunk beds in the living room, this would not be a good place for more than two adults unless some are comfortable sleeping in small beds.

Beautiful and cozy cottage by the sea. It had everything we needed and much much more. A great place to stay to explore the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Wished we had spent more nights there. Julius is an incredible host and shared a lot of helpful information. Highly recommend!!
