Dear Owners

We had a lovely stay in your property and look forward to returning back in the future. Thank you for the welcome basket you gave us but unfortunately we could not eat any of the products due to dietary requirements. We had some extra food left which we have left in the fridge.



Best regards

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it looked modern and cared for. Turns out it is the family somerhouse so they look after it well. It is off the main road by about 5 miles and very peaceful. We really enjoyed our time here and would stay here again if we return to Iceland as it is positioned very well for day trips to the various tourist attractions. Hot tub Is good for relaxing and keeps the kids quiet.

Our only comments to the owner would be having instructions on how to turn down the under floor heating as we, as a family, do not enjoy living in 20 odd degree heat consistently and would probably turned it off majority of the time if we had a choice. The other thing would be the ability to turn off the outside lights that seemed to be on light sensors as when trying to take pictures of the northern lights and Milky Way/stars it did have a detrimental effect on my long exposure shots. I could of removed the bulbs but didn't really want to start messing with stuff like that especially in the dark.

Summary would be anyone looking for a well maintained property that is private and peaceful this is the one.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for 10 days in March 2017.

The location was perfect, about 15 minutes from the town of Selfoss and quick driving access to all the Golden Circle attractions. It was isolated just enough to make it a quiet location with nice views of a river and mountain.

We were able to see the northern lights during a few nights of our stay.

The cottage itself has everything you need and the hottub was great!

I would definitely recommend this cottage!

Wow...perfect, the pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing, it was thick snow when we arrived but the road in was good and we accessed it easily. The views are incredible, the lodge absolutely perfect, big social space, big dining table, good kitchen with all the facilities you could need, and a huge veranda wall the way round with a bbq (we bbqd in the snow, had to be done!). Obviously the highlight was the hot tub and after a few evenings out there we spotted the northern lights, magic. The layout is brilliant, we had a three year old with us and its all on one floor so safe for her to toddle around, and they provided a cot and high chair for her too, they couldn't be more helpful.

Wonderful place, have already recommended it to several friends and might even return myself. Awesome set of directions provided too with photos of every junction, great comms from the owner, couldn't ask for more.

Amazing location in a beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect break in this lovely house. It had everything we possibly could have needed, stunning views from veranda, comfy beds, and a hot tub to relax in after a long day sightseeing. A lot of the main tourist attractions are an easy drive away. Would definitely stay here again.

Great home in a superb setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights here and really wish we could have stayed longer. The location was superb for exploring the Golden Circle and the south of Iceland, be sure to check out the Kerið crater which you will pass on the way to the cottage. Eating out in Iceland was very expensive but we shopped at the Bonus store in Hveragerði for groceries and were able to use BBQ and kitchen at the cottage which had everything we would need including some spices and containers for lunches. David Karlsson was the contact for the owner and he was very responsive to my queries. We actually arrived an hour earlier than scheduled and met the owner who was very friendly but he was still cleaning the cottage so we went to the golf course beside the cottage. They actually have a restaurant there, nothing fancy but the food was good and the coffee and dessert were great. On our last night (Aug 31st) we saw a strange cloud overhead and about 1 minute later we realized it was the Northern Lights when the cloud turned green and was dancing across the sky. It went on for about 90 minutes which was much longer than we thought it would last. So we sat in the hot tub and enjoyed the view above our head. We loved the view from the cottage and how peaceful and quiet it was, we would definitely return to this cottage in the future.
