About the property

Bright and spacious new cottage, great location.

This cottage is located in South Iceland, in a peaceful place in the countryside, right by the Golden Circle and only 50 min drive from Reykjavík City Center. You will find this beautiful house both spacious and comfortable.

The cottage has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms provide sleeping accommodation for two people, one bedroom provides sleeping accommodation for one adult and one child and the fourth bedroom sleeps one person. There is a wardrobe in the biggest bedroom and all other bedrooms have large drawers for guests to put their clothes and other things in.

The bathroom has a nice shower and a washing machine.

The kitchen and the living room are open plan, giving the cottage a bright and spacious feel. All common kitchen utensils are in the kitchen including a fridge, freezer, toaster and coffee maker for the convenience of guests.

In the living room there is a sofa, a TV with a DVD player and a beautiful fireplace. The windows are tall, allowing plenty of natural light to saturate the living space. These gorgeous windows provide a lovely view as they are overlooking the circle of mountains nearby.

There is also a cosy living room upstairs.

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 Iceland

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.

Really spacious and comfrtable

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage offers room for even a big family. It is very clean and there is everything you need for vacation. We made day trips to the attractions of golden circle, went to the highlands and Reykjavik and enjoyed the hot pot in the evening. Although the cottage is in area with several other cottages you have the Impression of being almost alone. Funny for us: the floor of the cottage is permanently heated with pipes of hot water. If it is too hot, open the window.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for 4 nights. If you want to stay in the country, this house is perfect. It's about 45 minutes from Þingvellir, Geysir, and Gulfoss. The incredible scenery along the south coast to the east is only about an hour drive away. The drive out to Dyrhólaey and back was the highlight of our stay.

The place was very clean when we arrived and has all the basic essentials. We really enjoyed the hot tub.

we booked this cottage for one week to discover the south east part of Iceland.

We simply can recommend this nice cottage. It's large, clean and well equipped. Returning from our daily trips, we really enjoyed to relax there.

A special thanks to Bragi for the warm welcome and the friendly communication!

Best wishes
