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.

The house is located right on the shore of the ocean, amazing views to the mountains and no-one else around. Perfect for couples or families. We had a great stay and still can't believe how calm and beautiful it is round there. House has everything you need, the kitchen is a bi…
