Heaven in the Valley

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is fantastic! For those who want to stay in luxury with all the comforts of home. Every day was spent on day tours to all of the most wonderful sights in the Golden Circle, every night was spent soaking in the geothermal hot tub right on the deck! It is beautiful in Helludalur Valley the cottages are cradled between a small hill to the one side (where the Geysir is) and a larger impressive "almost" mountain on the other side. Our amazing hostess/manager Kristín was everything anyone going on vacation could ask for. She was extremely responsive to all of our questions (there were many!) before we booked, after we booked, before we arrived and was always available during our stay at all times. Thank you Kristín we will never forget this opportunity to have stayed at Kristinarkot! Petta Reddast!!!

Perfect cottage in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this cottage. It was perfect! Spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable and we slept like logs. Our 3 children loved the hot tub, and we witnessed the northern lights on four separate nights, amazing. Kristin was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to everyone we know. Book now you won't be disappointed!!

Warm cosy cottage, beautiful location...walking distance to Geysirs.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious, warm and cosy. We enjoyed the hot tub (in February!) and had a spectacular view of the Northern Lights from the deck. The cottage is in a stunning location, within walking distance to the Geysirs and a short drive to Gullfoss waterfall. Kristin, the owner, could not have been more helpful, promptly answering queries both before and during our stay. Would recommend this cottage for a relaxing break.

cosy ,warm and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for us , it was clean , spacious, warm and cosy . The area was quiet which was exactly what we wanted . the location was ideal ,with Geysir within walking distance and other sights close by . I loved the secret lagoon, bathing in the natural geothermal waters which is a short drive away . We also enjoyed the hot tub . Kristín was really nice and gave us some good tips about where to visit and eat out

Great location and comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed Iceland. The house was very clean and has everything you need to cook some basic meals. Make sure you plan ahead while in the grocery store because stores are not close to the house. The hot tub was just as advertised and we loved it. My boys would put in a movie from the collection while they waited for the hot tub to fill. The location is great too. You can visit the Geysir and climb a hill and overlook this house. Snowmobiling with Mountaineers of Iceland on the glacier was just up the street and was a blast. We drove to the ice lagoon and although it is a long drive, the scenery made it all worth it.
