Very Good

“Lovely cottage, stunning location, very friendly & helpful owners - perfect!”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2019

We enjoyed 4 nights in this lovely "home from home" which has everything you need for a perfect self-catering base to explore all the magic that Iceland has to offer. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, spacious but cosy sitting room with log fire, and wonderful hot tub on the balcony with stunning views. Haukur and Anna Lisa are lovely hosts who went above and beyond to be friendly and helpful, with lots of advice on places to visit, eat, shop, etc. The location next to the lake and mountains is amazing, and just far enough off the beaten track to be quiet and peaceful, without being too far from many of the major attractions. We cannot recommend this lovely place highly enough, and we hope to stay there again some time, perhaps with family and for longer. It really is an absolute gem! Thank you so much Haukur and Anna Lisa PS I really love all the "rock houses" in the garden!

Lovely place, you will need a 4 x 4 in the winter months. Cottage very nice, would say it's a 4 birth with 2 x small children, older kids wouldn't fit in the little bunks.

Owner's reply: Hi Thank you for the review and not at least staying with us. Regarding the small bunks, we recommend using the bedroom at the guest house, only 3 meter from the main house. all the best Haukur and Lisa

“Lovely quiet cottage”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2018

We wanted to get out from town and stay somewhere a bit quieter. The cottage is only about 45 min from the centre of reykjavik and quite accessible, even better you are around 30 min from the centr thingvillir national park (golden circle) The cottage is great, we only used one which was fine for two people but there are actually two separate cottages on the same plot (you get both for booking). The view from the decking is amazing into a valley with a lake, the hot tub was very nice too! The instructions/Google map provided were perfect and took any stress out of the trip and Haukur was a brilliant host! We will be coming back to beautiful Iceland one day and will be definitely looking this place up again for when in that area.
