The living and dining spaces have a southern exposure and exquisite monumental views of the dormant volcano Hafnarfjall on the other side of the fjord. The boardwalk and beach are just steps away from our front door, and the geothermal swimming pool in Borgarnes is only a 5 minute walk away.

Interaction with guests

We gladly share our family vacation home and it's stunning views with traveling families and smaller groups, when we are away. I live with my husband and three kids in Stockholm, but we spend as much time as we can in our dream home in Borgarnes. I arrange yoga workshops regularly in Borgarnes and the kids appreciate the freedom that children in the Icelandic countryside enjoy. We also love to hike in the beautiful mountains in Borgarfjördur and Snæfellsnes.

We stayed in Loa's beautiful home in Borgarnes for 2 nights. There were 3 of us but the home is large enough to accommodate a lot more.....large kitchen and dining room, large, comfortable living room with spectacular views of the bay and volcano. We were even able to see the northern lights from the back yard one evening. Communication with Loa was great before and during our stay. She gave us many good recommendations for restaurants, shops and sights in and around Borgarnes. Check-in and check-out was very easy. Loa was a great host and I highly recommend her house if you have plans to stay in Borgarnes.

This was a big house with a gorgeous view of the water We could walk to the Settlement Center, which is a must for the lunch buffet and delicious dinner options. Very quiet little town, but convenient to Reykholt and Husafell.

I don't think I've ever stayed in an airbnb with a host as helpful as Loa. Months before our trip she sent a list of tips/recommendations that helped us plan our time in Iceland, and she was very responsive and kind in all communication. We enjoyed our time in Borgarnes; its location is great for trips up to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula or down to Reykjavik. There were only 4 of us (two couples) so we didn't need nearly as much space/rooms as this place allowed, but it was more affordable than many places with just 2 rooms - and again, this place is lovely (as clear from the photos). Well-stocked kitchen, comfy beds, open living area. Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful experience staying at Loa's house in Borgarnes! First, the magnificent views which are easily enjoyed from the living room and 2 of the bedrooms were truly breathtaking. It was so wonderful to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning and be able to soak in the amazing landscape without leaving the comfort of the living room. Second, the house was clean and spacious and even had some toys and games available. Third, the beach and boardwalk right across the street were so cool. My children could not get over having a black sand beach all to themselves. Finally, we really enjoyed all the town of Borgarnes had to offer (and how close it was to several other sights we wanted to see.) I think the Borgarnes swimming pool was one of the biggest hits of the trip. All of the facilities were amazing (especially the waterslides), and it was much less crowded than the pools in Reykjavik. Overall, it was a truly great vacation experience and we would love to rent this house again!

We are so happy that you enjoyed exactly the same things as we love about Borgarnes: The feeling of having the ocean and the mountain almost in the living room, the black beach, boardwalk and the swimming pool! You are welcome to come back any time :-)

We were fortunate to find Loa's place on a short notice trip. It had great mountain and sea views, and was easy walking to beach, pool, restaurants, cafes and very quiet. Loa promptly replied to any queries and gave excellent tips where to visit and eat. Would happily stay again to explore West Iceland with our extended family of 6 or 7.

We spent our first 3 nights in Iceland in Borgarnes at Loa's place. It was perfect for our extended family of seven. My mom & dad, brother, husband and two teenage children were very comfortable in the home with four bedrooms. Our check in was easy and the directions brought us right to the location. Loa gave us a suggestion for a local guide to tour around Snaelfellsnes pennisula. It was so great to get the local perspective! The view from the house is fantastic! We would highly recommend staying at Loa''s place.

Perfect flat with tasteful and good interior with everything you need. Highlight of the flat is the stunning view from the living room over the bay and the mountains on the other shore. The flat is spacious, well heated and cozy. Our children were happy to find some toys and books. The flat is situated in a quiet neighborhood. The city center, beach and nice cafes are within walking distance. All necessary shopping possibilities are within close range. The flat was a perfect starting point to explore western Iceland. The friendly and helpful host Loa provides you with tips where to find what in the neighborhood and what to explore in western Iceland (some are not found in common travel guides). Next time in western Iceland Loa’s flat is our choice again.

Welcome to my dream holiday home, situated directly on the sea shore in Borgarnes, Iceland. When I travel the world, I love to be a part of the place I visit by staying in somebody´s home, rented through Airbnb. I am addicted to the sea, so I always prefer travelling to places by the sea...when I´m not at home in Stockholm or Iceland.
