Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed having a place for our family to come and stay with us! This house had everything that we needed for a great family vacation. Host was very gracious and had set up a crib for our grandson and a high chair as well. We would stay again!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfectly located for exploring the South/South Eastern part of the island.

The facilities at the property are home from home with everything you wish for, the geo thermal tub was big hit. The view from the veranda was beautiful with ever changing scenery.

I would definitely reccomend this property and I will be looking to return.

Great Place to Stay in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

This place is huge - there were only two of us but lots of space to accommodate a family. The geothermal hottub is very neat. This place had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Iceland. We accessed the Golden Circle and the south east side of Iceland up to Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. So much to see in this area!!

Cozy, yet spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Iceland (young couple from Germany) and we had an amazing time! Spending our anniversary night in the hot tub with aurora borealis directly over our heads was unforgettable. We explored southern Iceland as best as we could in this short week (Reykjavík, Golden Circle, Vík í Mýrdal...) – coming back to this cottage after our trips always felt like coming home.

The interior is very cozy, with handmade art, some puppets and a lot of other nice little things to discover. The TV-program an DVDs are mostly icelandic, as well as the books (our favorite was probably the icelandic version of "Where is Waldo?"). The kitchen is fully equipped, including a dishwasher, which was very helpful. There was no need to bring bedsheets as well as towels and bathrobes for the hot tub.

Haraldur was a very nice host, while his english is not the best, communication was still no problem. He gave us good directions from the airport to the cottage, welcomed us in person and answered our questions. He showed us how the technical devices work, as well as some places to shop groceries.

We had a wonderful holiday, mostly thanks to this cottage!

The cottage Stafholt was built 2007, in the quite hills near Flúðir. it is ca 72m2 house with guest house of 8m2, where easily can stay up to 7 persons. The place Flúðir is a 1 hour drive away from the city Reykjavik, in the south-west. You are staying in the highlights of Iceland. This is the perfect place to stay in the midst of greatest natural attraction of Iceland, in the Golden Circle. You have the famous Geysir in 30 min driving distance and Gullfoss is also close by. You enjoy the nature, and are very close to many activities nearby the cottage. The volcano Eyjafjallajökull is one of the attractions in driving direction. The Hot Tub will be an important part of your stay at our special cottage. Guests renew their relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in the warm geothermal water. The Hot Tub is always with new natural water that is the without doubt the best in Iceland. Enjoy to sit in the whirlpool after a walk on a glacier or relax in the steambath, enjoy the 24 hours of daylight in the summertime. Don't hesitate to contact me.
