Was lovely and warm already inside and the hot tub was ready for us to jump into. Everything was all very clean and it was very well stocked. Beds were comfy. as were out for most the day, unfortunately we didn’t see much of the house but had a nice time in the evening relaxing. A great base for seeing the south of Iceland and close to airport

We never meet the owners but they we're very helpful when we had to contact them. Great location for the golden circle and many more beautiful places to visit. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights on our last evening at the cabin we managed to get some fantastic photo's. We can't wait to come back and explore more of iceland we could not recommend it enough ☺
