Beautiful cottage

5 of 5
We all loved everything about the cottage. It was perfect to get away from everything and have some privacy. Kristinn was very friendly and helpful, he met us at the cabin and showed us all round and gave so much information about the local area and things to do. My only complaint is we didn't stay long enough! So next time have to book at least a week I think! Hope to come back soon. Thanks again for all the help and lovely cottage! Philip

Fantastic Icelandic Experience

5 of 5
Amazing Cabin in Iceland, it was well appointed and, had everything we needed plus the addition of a fantastic hot tub. The location was superb and only 20 min drive to Selfoss with shops, supermarkets and restaurants and within easy reach of the Geysir, the Secret Lagoon and Gulfoss waterfall. It was a great location and we had a fantastic experience of Iceland that we felt we wouldn't have had if we'd stayed in a hotel in the city. Would recommend this property to everyone and would happily stay here again.
