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 Southern Region

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.

Discover Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days in this property. For self catering it was very well equipped (esp the kitchen) & other supplies. It was also incredibly warm which was perfect!

Very close to Gullfoss and Geysir which are two big highlights on the Golden Circle. Geysir restaurant has a small shop attached so if you need milk etc you can purchase there in an emergency.

Due to our flight times we did the Blue Lagoon when we arrived, shopped in Selfoss & continued to accommodation. I recommend doing a food Walking Food Tour of Reykjavík! Overall a fabulous trip & definitely recommend this property if you’re wanting to cut out the tour bus trips and discover Iceland yourself.

Amazing Location, perfect for Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I loved this home. It is so welcoming, and warm. The hot tub was a huge plus after a day of exploring- we even got to see the Northern Lights on our second night here. The kitchen is great for cooking, they have all the pots/pans/utensils you need to cook every meal. We only used the large bed downstairs, but it was very comfortable, and dark in the bedroom. So, those days we needed extra sleep, sleeping in was not a problem. Overall, we loved this place and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore the Golden Circle!

Cozy cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Greta's cabin! The living room was beautifully decorated and the atmosphere was so cozy. Everything was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. We also took advantage of the hot tub which was so relaxing. The location of this property cannot be beat; it is virtually next door to Geysir and a short drive to Guilfoss and other waterfalls. I highly recommend staying at this property.
