“the Atlantic Swan is now the standard against which all other vacation rentals will be measured”
Reviewed June 11, 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.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your review of our property. It was a pleasure for us to have you with us. I do fully agree with you that a car makes everything much easier when you are in the Faroe Islands. It gives you the freedom to move with your own tempo around the islands. Thank you for this time and all the best.
Kind regard
Jens Kristian
