“A brilliant place to get away from it all.” Brekka Lodge is located in an amazing surrounding. It is perched on the side of a mountain. There were three other lodges some distance away. There was hardly any noise to be heard, apart from the occasional passing car at the bottom of the mountain or a bird. From the lodge you can see the ocean, green bushes as far as the eye can see and snow capped mountains in the distance. The views from each window of the lodge were wonderful. The lodge itself is conveniently located so that you are able to see majority of the tourist sites by car. However, once you see the lodge, it's location, the scenery around and enjoy its' outdoor hot tub, you may not want too see the rest of the country. The couple who own and run the place are very helpful and understanding. They will go out of their way to make your stay in their property a memorable one. For example, we arrived at the lodge at around 3:00am and they had kindly purchased some essentials for breakfast on our behalf. The only negative thing I can think of from our perspective is that we could have done with another toilet as we were a large group. I would highly recommend this lodge but would warn occupants to notify the owners of any broken furniture they come across so to avoid any confusion about who is responsible. If life permits, I would love to go back again in a few years time to enjoy the northern lights.

“Cozy cabin with fantastic views” We spent three nights at the house, and loved every moment. We were well prepared for the isolation, and thankfully took the advice we were given to bring plenty of food with us. What surprised us was how well equipped and cozy the house was; we had been expecting something much more basic. We enjoyed making day trips around the area, and everyone (even the teenagers) enjoyed the sense of escape and immersion into an entirely new natural environment. The views over the water are lovely.

“Never wanted to leave, a magical place.” We absolutely loved this cabin, our entire experience was top notch from start to finish. The lovely ladies who own the cabin were so welcoming and were excellent at all correspondents. I would highly recommend this cabin, it's quirky, well equipped, cosy and made for a holiday of a lifetime. Loved the tub!!!!

“A perfect cottage in which to feel at home.” This is a perfect cottage in which to feel at home whilst exploring the south west of Iceland. The views across the lake and to the surrounding hills are very special. It is well equipped and has a spacious living area and I would recommend paying the small extra fee for use of the hot tub after a day's trekking in the mountains or driving around the fjords. Iceland's highest waterfall, Glymur, is nearby and is well worth the walk. Haukur and anna Lisa, the hosts, are very helpful and friendly and we very much enjoyed our time in their summerhouse.

“A home away from home.” We rented two of the cottages and stayed towards the end of February. The accommodation was very well equipped and we had some lovely family meals with the beautiful view of the fjord before us. We spent our days exploring, doing the usual trips like the Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik, the geysers and waterfalls, and when we returned each evening, the cottages were warm and inviting. As there was a fierce and bitter February wind, only my husband was brave, or mad, enough to try the hot tub, but we were all fortunate to see the Northern Lights faintly on our last evening. We found Iceland fascinating and would love to return to the cottages, but perhaps in summer :-) All in all, it was an incredible experience and the hospitality of our hosts and their friendly beagles made us feel very welcome.

“The joys of Dynjandi” As a boon to Ausländer, “Dynjandi” is one of the easier words in Icelandic to pronounce (“Ég tala ekki íslensku”). The “cottage” (actually two units — a main house and a smaller guest bungalow), looks out over broad decks onto a verdant field and a forked river containing an island visited by humane fishermen (despite willing fish, they never seem to catch anything), and a mostly unbroken horizon with only a few houses off the main sight lines. The serenity is otherworldly. Far from the main road, the only sounds which intrude are the murmurings of the water and an occasional not-so-angry bird. Stay up past your bedtime to enjoy a glorious sunset, and moments thereafter a spectacular sunrise. Get no sleep. Stay warm. Geothermic heat beneath the floorboards subtly and silently maintains a comfortable temperature. The hot tub, refreshed daily from the same inexhaustible hot water, restores to the body what the atmosphere extracts. Sulfur adds a rare bouquet. Sigríður and Arni provide an elegantly equipped kitchen and lovely decor (despite a less-than-flattering portrait of Marilyn). They supplement all this with excellent advice, board games (if you need them), a library ranging from high-brow literature to romance rubbish. They thoughtfully provided flawless August weather (like San Diego, only brisker), and prevented Bárðarbunga from ruining the end of our trip. Gnomes were surely present, but we didn’t meet any. Make quick and easy excursions by car to top sites in Suðurland. We look forward to our next visit, which hopefully Eyjafjallajökull or some other will not bring to a fiery end.
