“Absolutely amazing!!” A fantastic house. The location was so great, no highway and no sound except from the nature itself. This house is magical and has everything you need (and more). The kitchen is very spacious and good facility to cook and we saved a lot of money on restaurant bills.
The owner was very helpful and told us all about where to go and what to see. Also very good information about how everything works and functions in the house.
Thanks Heidrun and Robert for a absolutely wonderful stay. The only negative thing about it all was that we did not realize how fantastic the house and the place was until we arrived so, we didn't stay long enough.
One thing we want to mention is the price. We have staid on the south coast near the Golden Circle in many summerhouses. Comparing the price and the standard, this house exceeded our expectations and also more than plenty of attractions to visit on the west coast. Reykholt, Stykkisholmur, Borgarnes.
Akranes and only one hour to Reykjavik. We visited the fantastic swimming pool in Borgarnes every day and it was even open early in the morning until ten o´clock in the evening. It was so, so nice and relaxing.
Everything was perfect, clean and well organised.
We are already planning to come back next fall.
..and thanks Robert, for the late phone call to remind us, to look up in the sky for the Northern lights, it was magical.
Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic... !!!

“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!!!!
“Two-day stay in a nice little log cabin” We had a great stay in this nice cabin, in a peaceful location close to the river. The hot tub was fantastic for the kids (they spent hours in it), especially when the weather is a bit cold and rainy. The view from the terrace is beautiful and relaxing. Great place for the golden circle and enjoying a bit of icelandic lifestyle.
“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.
