Wonderful for our family of three!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here with our six-year-old son! The location was perfect for the hiking and sites we were most interested in, and the owners helped with recommendations for making the most of those locations and adding in a few more less popular ones that ended up being some of our favorites. The cabin itself was such a lovely, secluded spot and the hot tub was fabulous after a long day of hiking. The kitchen has everything you need to put together a good meal (two burners and a large toaster oven) and the nearby grocery store in Selfoss was a daily stop since we enjoyed so many meals in the cabin. The owners were immediately on the phone with us when the smallest of issues arose in the house (there was one SUPER small thing we couldn't figure out and they had called us within 2 min of messaging them). The cabin immediately felt like home for our adventures in Iceland and we'd absolutely stay here if we visit again!

Peaceful, quiet, beautiful setting & very convenient to Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! It was the perfect base for our exploration of the Golden Circle and the south coast. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The hot tub was a nice extra.

This place was perfect- Location & Quality

  • 5 of 5

Before going to Iceland, there's only so much research you can do. It's hard to picture where things are and where you need to be. After going and staying here the entire time, I can say this is THE BEST location. So many people stay in REK and miss actually SEEING and EXPERIENCING the geysers, waterfalls, geothermal pots, glaciers, etc. I'm so happy with our choice. So many kept saying how far things were- not if you stay here!

PRO

• it's beautiful, nothing I'd change about the rental

•hot pot with an amazing view of a mountain and lake

•private- just one house to the right you can see but no one makes a peep

•wildlife- birds singing everywhere

•location- so close to the main things we saw before venturing farther out (the crater, Gulfoss, pingvellir and SO MUCH more)

•so much sleeping space

•great kitchen- fridge is small but fits EVERYTHING you need. No oven but toaster oven did all we needed and had a place to boil or cook on top. I reccommend lots of hot dogs broiled in there or on grill. They're Icelands famous!

•nice gated, secure community you need a gate "buzzer" for

CONS- only a few

• It was hard to get in touch with Jessi. I understand she's busy with their two restaurants but when you have guests staying from out of country I think it's priority to make sure your checking your email semi-regularly. We couldn't call- only email over wifi. She took far too long to respond so we were never able to visit the restaurant. By the time we heard from her it was too late. They both were very sweet, though. Just some constructive feedback.

•There's no washer and dryer- but we managed fine. First world problems :)

•I didn't realize this but homeaway charges in Euros- maybe I didn't pay attention. I used a car that wasn't my international free card and paid $40USD in fees- just a heads up:) Jessi was going to give us a discount for that amount at her restaurant but, like I mentioned, we were not able to take advantage of it because we didn't hear back in time.

And, nothing to do with the rental but... we didn't read anywhere online how bad the bugs were. So many little nat like bugs everywhere throughout our travels. Bring a net for around your face:) Seriously- we saw people with them and it was genius. This isn't a little bit of bugs... it's a TON. And it gets annoying keeping them from getting into your car and swatting them away.

In summary- amazing amazing amazing rental with everything you need and very sweet hosts.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

There is no way this could have been better, even with the rain! Hot tub was perfect, our hosts were incredibly helpful, and the location was right in the heart of the Golden Circle, yet very secluded. Magical!

Great cabin in a quiet setting with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin near the Golden Circle is perfectly located for day trips to several must-see locations. Close proximity to Selfoss for groceries or other needs is also convenient. It is a great place to come home to after a long day and the hot tub makes an evening of relaxation especially great. Johann was a gracious host and took the time to meet us when we arrived and explain things we needed to know about the cabin. If we’re ever back in this area of Iceland, we would stay here again!
