“Great base for exploring the Faroes”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very comfortable apartment-plenty of room for five people. We stayed 10 days and found this the perfect base from which to explore the Faroe Islands. It was walking distance to the supermarket and the National Museum and a short drive into Torshavn, the capital. Beautiful views of the sea and passing ships. Our hosts were very helpful, corresponding by email, letting us know of the 'must see' places and things to do on the islands. Highly recommended.

“Brilliant apartment and host”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Rented The Atlantic Puffin a week in august and we had a very pleasant and lovely stay. The apartment had everything you needed, in the bathroom and kitchen, and is also perfectly situated just outside Torshavn. Spotlessly clean and fresh! The host is absolutely brilliant, providing information and helping you with everything you need to know to have a perfect stay in the Faroese Islands. Strongly recommended and our family hope to stay here again when visiting the Faroese Islands next time.

“The Atlantic Swan and The Faroe Islands are a balm for your sole.”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

When we decided to go back to The Faroe Islands, it was a natural thing for us to book The Atlantic Swan again. We felt as if we came home. Everything in the apartment is of high standard and the kitchen is very well equipped. There is a wonderful view to Nolsey from the sittingroom.
Our host is very serviceminded and sent mails with inspiration and recommendations for our stay and even booked for us. One of the most breathtaking and impressing experiences was our trip round Hestur with RIB62.
We highly recommend the Atlantic Swan. A visit to The Faroe Islands is a balm for your sole

“the Atlantic Swan is now the standard against which all other vacation rentals will be measured”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Atlantic Swan is a large (3 bedroom), bright, modern apartment with views of the water and nearby islands. It is spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished, and fully equipped (toaster, microwave, coffee maker even with the filters). The kitchen has all the appliances you would have at home and spices and essentials (like oil) to get you cooking on day 1. I do cook, with the seasonings there in the house along with some sauces I bought from the grocery store, I was able to cook some great meals. Eating out every night can be expensive so a fully equipped kitchen certainly adds some bonus ;)
The house includes a clothes washing machine, 2 TVs, and speedy WiFi connection! Most importance is that all the bed rooms and the bathroom upstairs are so bright and cheerful, skylight is in every bedroom. It was fun experience to see birds flying above your head so close that as if you could reach them. Yet, you can close the blackout shade at night so that you can sleep. All the bathroom floors are heated which is another plus and hair dryer for the lady!

We found it to be the perfect location. It is outside of central Torshavn on a very quiet peaceful bluff, but a 5 minute drive into town. It is right on bus route #2 and a 5 minute walk to two other bus routes and the buses are free. A huge grocery store is a few minutes’ walk away. And when it is time to explore the Faroe Islands, you are very close to the main road out of town.

The Atlantic Swan’s greatest asset is Jens. He recommended the best places to go and made reservations for us at a restaurant we wanted to go to and a boat ride to the Bosdalafossur waterfall. He is very friendly and always available. We communicated through email through wifi using my cel phone. We did not get a SIM phone card, since Jens is so helpful!

When he asked us if there was anything he could improve upon, we could not think of a single thing. For us the Atlantic Swan is now the standard against which all other vacation rentals will be measured.

P.S. No kidding about how easy to get direction from Jens prior to our trip, he was so prepared, and he sets up the key lock box with code that send to you privately prior your departure, so that you can be there at anytime.
