Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

The house " Marbakki" stands on the shore, close to the glacier Snæfellsjökull. The bird life is idyllic, and the solitude is perfect.
Close by are the most beautiful sights that Iceland has to offer. Swimming pool, & horse rental 5 min. away.
Birds-seals and the Arctic fox are your closest neighbours.

What an amazing property in the middle of nowhere! We managed to come at a wonderful time - we got to see the Northern Lights three nights in a row! This was a truly memorable trip for us and our children who will remember this for the rest of their lives.
