It was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed and more. Thor provided excellent directions and the arrangements for gaining access worked perfectly. The kids loved the play station and we all enjoyed the movie box and the hot tub although we only got time to use the latter once. The cottage is in a good location to get to all the sights in the south west corner of iceland including the golden circle. It's location feels quite remote which was a good thing for us, but meant a quick trip to the shops or restaurant wasn't possible. Locally we'd recommend the Book Cafe and the Kronan supermarket in Selfoss and the Skyrgerdin Restaurant in Hveragerdi, as well as the walk up to the hot river for a swim from there.

We really enjoyed the quiet garden, the hot pot and sauna, we even saw the Northern Lights. Inside the cabin was comfortable, clean and warm. Hadn't realised the sleeping loft would be quite so restricted on height, my tall teenagers banged their heads a couple of times but they still thought it was a cute space to sleep. We ate in as there was space to cook and eat, really welcome after busy days out. Would certainly recommend this house to other potential guests.
