Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, loft and 1 bathroom 100 m2

2 bedroom, loft and 1 bath 100m2 (1100sqft) modern log cabin that sleeps 8 comfortably . The cabin is about 1 hour drive from Reykjavik in the valley of Helludalur. It comes completely equipped and has everything you need for your stay including an outside hot tub perfect for enjoying the midnight sun in summer or the northern lights in winter.

It truly is the perfect base for exploring The Golden Circle, The South Coast and the Highlands, in fact one of Iceland's most famous natural site the erupting geysers at Geysir is only a short 15 minute walk away. Relax in the cabin or get out there exploring, I’ll be more than happy to help you plan your stay before you arrive and if you would like to take advantage of the many activities around then the agencies will all pick up at Geysir (3min drive). My goal as a host is to make sure you get the absolute most out of your stay!

Renew your relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in warm geothermal water or cosying it up on the sofa enjoying the view of the peaceful valley.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions and if you are ready to book then feel free to use the instant booking option.

Your host,

Greta.

Why Greta chose Iceland

Cottages Engjagil 4 and 5 in Helludalur Geysir area are built in the year 2007-8, made of logs from Finland, the houses are situated in the peaceful valley Helludalur yet it is in the midst of the Golden Circle, what we love about this place is that we find peace and tranquillity during our stays there and it has been a huge pleasure to share this special place with our guests, we are thankful and blessed to do so.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has enough space for up to 8 persons, the beds are very comfortable and on the loft there is a roof window right above your head so you can see the stars at night. Icelandic ponies are often in the field a few steps from the cottage. Because we have 2 cottages in the same area we can have up to 16 persons at the same time.

Cosy and convenient base to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin, which makes good use of the space so manages to feel spacious despite being relatively small! You feel very private and surrounded by countryside.

The beds were very comfortable, we all loved having a few movies to choose from to watch on the big tv, and the kitchen, though small, was adequate for our needs. We loved the hot tub! Kristin was a responsive host and answered all our questions.

The location is very convenient for a number of attractions in the area, and being so close meant you could visit Geysir and Gulfoss at quieter times when not so many people around, which was nice.

Recommended!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The cabin needs some TLC, it's a bit rundown in places e.g. chipped crockery, a slow leak in the lovely hot tub (still works but leave the water running slowly to keep it topped up), a damaged outside table etc It could have been cleaner when we arrived, but it was still very comfortable and in a gorgeous valley. Once the crowds had gone, we went round every evening to explore and pay our respects to Strokkur at Geysir; it took a 2 minutes drive or 15 minutes to walk, such a joy to be able to visit and be awe-struck in peace! The cabin is in easy reach of the top sights in Southern Iceland and, despite the negative comments above, the comfort and the location mean that we would happily go back again. Happy to recommend it.

Great lodge, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic lodge in good location for Geysir & Gulfoss & Secret Lagoon. We used it as a base to explore the "Interior" and South Coast of Iceland.

Great facilities to relax (incl hot tub) after a hard day sight-seeing!!!

Particularly liked the Northern Lights switch!!!
