Spacious, very clean and well-equipped, it certainly feels warm and just like home for the time you’re there. We spend most of our holiday exploring the south coast of Iceland, which is a truly stunning place with lots to see, and then the evenings back at the house chilling, cooking, drinking wine and looking out for the northern lights. Even if you don’t get to see the lights themselves the stars are amazing. Rikhardur was a great host, giving very simple and straightforward instructions to the house and checking all was well. We were a party of five and we all highly recommend this house.

It was a simply wonderful place to stay and relax while exploring Iceland. The cabin was very clean and the location is fantastic for visiting the sights around the golden circle. The hot tub was very welcome after a busy day, especially after hiking up the Sólheimajökull glacier. Halla went out of her way to give us information about Iceland including places to visit and road conditions. She made sure to check everything was ok in the cabin during our stay. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone visiting southern Iceland and wish we had stayed longer than a week!

                                                                                                      There were 9 of us staying in the house for my 40th birthday and it was just perfect. The views are magnificent and were were incredibly lucky to see the Northern Lights from the hot tub on the first night which is more than we could have wished for! The living and dining room are perfect for a large group. All of the floors had underfloor heating which was lovely and there were plenty of towels for everyone as well as toilet paper and hand soap which is not always provided in self catering accommodation. There were two large double rooms and one twin room that overlooked the hot tub and another large double that led though into the laundry room which contained another double bed on the other side of the house. Please bear in mind that whoever stays in the laundry room will have to walk through the double bedroom if they want to use the toilet during the night. The laundry room is also colder than the rest of the house. This was not a problem for us at all however. The two bathrooms were large, again with underfloor heating and a walk in shower. There was a hairdryer in each bathroom. The beds were all very comfortable with really lovely soft bedding. Everyone in my party was impressed with the house. Location wise it was well located for the best tourist attractions in the Golden Circle. Gulfoss and Geysir and the Secret Lagoon were all very close and Thingvellir National park was just a little further out. We also went to Langjökull glacier which was about 2 1/2 hours away. You can see Faxi waterfall from the house, the views are magnificent and there are binoculars to enable you to have a closer look. I would definitely book again. I cannot imagine another house that could be any better than this in terms of location, views, comfort and luxury!
