A new cabin built in 2019 located in Hvalfjörður, around 50 min. from Reykjavík - The perfect spot to enjoy the nature, beautiful northern lights and amazing view, still close to the city and all major attractions in south-west Iceland.
This small, quiet, beautiful and cozy house will amaze you with a modern look but warm and cozy at the same time.

Lo spazio
The cabin is located in the north of Hvalfjörður, in a hill facing the south with beautiful surroundings and ocean view.
From there you'll be able to reach Reykjavík in only 50 minutes but still staying remote, enjoying the quiet nature close to some of the main attractions.
There you will find great walking trails, for example to the highest waterfall in Iceland Glymur, only around 10 min drive.
You have mountains for hiking, Þingvellir is within an hour away and from there you can visit the Geysir and Golden Circle.
In the west are many wonderful attractions like Langjökull clacier (Húsafell), and Snæfellsjökull glacier among many others.
Next to the cabin you can visit our friendly Icelandic horses or have a walk to the beach where you might see seals.
During winter you'll have the opportunity of enjoying the northern lights just outside on the patio or watch them from the warm inside through the extra high glassfront on three sides of the house.
The cabin (around 30m2) is perfect for couples or groups of 2-4 people travelling together.
You'll find a small bathroom with shower, towels and a hairdryer.
The entrance will take you into the open living room with a warm style and fully equipped kitchen where you'll find a refrigerator, oven, stove, toaster, electric kettle, dolce gusto coffee machine and pots for cooking.
In the open space you'll feel the cozy atmosphere where you can enjoy quality time under a blanket admiring the amazing view. We have a sleeping sofa where two person can sleep.
You can walk out through a sliding door on a patio with hot tub, in function all year long.
In the cabin you'll find a queen size bed and a tv that you can watch Netflix.
Good internet connection is in the house.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Our guests are welcome to use the whole cabin.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Dear Visitors!
As you know, Brekka Retreat is a bit remote. You might want to go to the groceries before.
On the way to Brekka Retreat in Mosfellsbær there are a Bonus and a Kronan market, open daily from 9am to 8pm. Alcohol you get at Vinbudin or on the airport, in Iceland alcohol is not sold in grocery stores or gas stations.
We have a coffee-machine for Dolce Gusto capsules. You`ll find a couple of those in the cabin.
Once in Brekka you can go shopping in Akranes or Borgarnes. Hvalfjördur has a gas station, close to the war-and-peace-museum on the road.
Coming from Reykjavik through the tunnel please pass Bjarteyjarsandur Camping. There is no sign on the road for Brekka Retreat, do not follow the sign to Brekka. After about 400m (3rd picture) turn left.

The key to the cabin is in the entrance, left side of the door.

- Please take off your shoes outside.
Heating system:
We have a floor-heating system which works very well.
You`ll find the house warm when you arrive, but when you leave the door open in freezing cold conditions for some time, it will cool down and take some time until it gets warm again.
The thermostat is above the sofa. It is recommended to turn it on position 3, just when it is really freezing cold and stormy outside turn it up to 4. In warm or sunny weather, when you leave the door open, it is better to turn it down completely, otherwise it might get too hot in the house. The house is isolated well, it will not cool down completely overnight.

General information
- Please take care, that the windows are in a position that keeps the precipitation out.
- Smoking is only allowed on the terrace. Flowerpot-ashtray is in the storage. Please be very careful with fire.
- Please make sure that the bathroom can always dry after showering. Best way is to keep the door open or opening the window to the storage/washing room.
- You can use whatever you find in the kitchen and leave food which keeps fresh. We are not responsible for providing with stuff, but usually you will find sugar, salt and pepper and oil.
- We have: Washing mashine with dryer, hairdryer, stove, oven and microwave, coffee machine, watercooker, toaster and outdoor – barbecue.
It is a lot of work cleaning the oven. Please take care that you leave it nice! If you splash you are free to try all the cleaning- tricks which can be found in internet, and if one is working for you please tell me 

Hot Tub
You are very welcome to use the hotpot. The heat is at 40 in winter, other seasons a bit lower. You don`t need to adjust it. Only if someone changed it too low, keep the temperature-button pressed until the right temperature is shown on the display. When it`s freezing cold outside it will cool down a bit when the cover is open, so always close it as soon as you get out.
Make sure when changing the temperature that the arrow is not left with triangle down and saying “rest mode”, this will make the hot tub cool down to 23 degrees and when it´s cold outside it could take hours to heat back up to 40 degrees.
There might be some black stuff on the ground. This is not dirt, it is lava-sand which keeps to be blown in almost daily.
To keep it nice for everybody please
- Take a shower and clean your feet before entering
- Tie long hair

When you leave, please make sure that
- The door to the terrace is locked
- Bathroom door is open
- The thermostat is on position 3-4
- All outside-stuff, especially the hotpot is properly closed and fixed
- The barbeque is inside
- No perishable food and drinks are left.
- The key is back to the key-box

The rubbish-containers are located in the neighbourhood. Down the main road turn right and drive past the camping-place. After that, first exit to the right, drive up the road and find the containers on the left side. See in the picture above.
