About Bragi Már Unnsteinsson

My name is Bragi. I bought this piece of land in 2008 to build a summerhouse. The location seemed perfect, not to far from Kópavogur, where I live, and surrounded with beautiful landscape. The next few years, with some help of course, I built and furnished this house.

Bragi Már Unnsteinsson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Bragi Már Unnsteinsson chose Southern Region

The location is ideal for people who want to take short day trips to various beautiful places in South and West Iceland, as to the Reykjanes peninsula. The house is literally located on the Golden Circle, yet it is in a private and quiet area.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is very bright and spacious, recently furnished and has a very large wooden deck all around. There is amazing bird life in the area. Just a few minute drive to the beautiful golf course at Kiðjaberg and an equally short drive to the nice swimming pool at Borg.

Lovely stay in Iceland

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. Bragi was a good host with good communication and helpful. The property was just as described, lovely and clean as well. The location was great and it was good to be further away from towns so we don't have light pollution and looked out for the northern lights every night. We got lucky and saw them too! It felt very secure and was a great location for sight seeing and visiting spots on the golden circle & nearby. The secrect lagoon in Fludir was well worth a visit and not far. We didn't realise we had to buy wood for the fireplace so it took us a awhile to find a shop that sold some but the

Olis petrol station had some , so in hindsight or for your stay get some on the way to the house.

The underfloor heating was good and warmed the house nicely. Puzzles and a few games were supplied which was nice and quite a few leaflets about attractions.

To our delight the house did have wifi too , so that made it easier keeping in contact with family. The kitchen had all utensils we needed and helpful extra bits like seasoning for food. We felt terrible bothering Bragi at 4am to buzz us out of the gate to the area but he was lovely about it and said it was problem at all. A very good host. There was a hot tub too but we never got around to use it , we'll just have to go back!

I would recommend this owner and this property to a friend. Thank you for our stay.

Cozy / Comfy Cottage in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a superb location, and is well furnished for families enjoying the Golden Circle. The night sky view from the deck is spectacular for northern lights.

It is very close to nearby attractions and restaurants. Check out Fludir when you can. (secret lagoon, and a great Ethiopian food joint)

The house is well stocked with amenities and the heating works surprisingly well (heated by hot water pipes running throughout the floor). Bragi is an amazing host willing to help anytime.

Thanks for sharing your home with us..

Perfect / centrally located location to explore Iceland from

  • 5 of 5

We loved outlet trip to Iceland and were. Sry happy with the accommodations. The house was large, clean and very comfortable and the location was great for seeing the southern half of Iceland.

The washing machine was efficient and handy after long days of hiking. The only surprise was that there was no dryer for clothes - but there was a clothes line (we ran inside on a cold day) and a large drying rack.

I thought Iceland would be a one and done location - but now hope to go back in the coming years.

Thanks Bragi!!
