A lovely cottage in a surreal winter location

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a lovely place in an environment that, being from southern England, we had no previous experience of!... The interior was very homely and warm in what was a snow-dominated surrounding. And what a view outside!... We wrapped up warm when we went out - you had to, believe me!... But it's a great place to stay in what we found to be a beautiful country. The Northern Lights appeared one night in all its glory overhead and the location is in a good position for the geysers, Gullfoss, the Blue Lagoon and the National Park. Thank you for giving us all a holiday we will never forget. John

Owner's Response: Thank you John for your lovely summery :) We loved having you as our guests. I hope you come again to Iceland in the summer so you can experience the amazing summer solstice when the sun barely goes down, talking about contrast ;) Best regards, Þórunn

Really cosy and sweet house to feel very well

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely cute, cosy and with so much love decorated!!! We really did feel like in a friends house-we missed nothing! There is more then enough space for 8+ persons. The owner Mrs. Magnusdottir is very friendly and helpfull. She even gave us a sign to stay in the house because of an upcoming strong storm.

I've been around a lot, but i have never veen in such a lovely home!! I really recommend the house!! All the best to Mrs. Magnusdottir and her family!! Sandra :)

Beautiful cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful decorated cottage with everything you need. It is in a nice quiet location but within easy reach of little towns like Selfoss and a few minutes from the national park. My husband loved the gas BBQ on the decked area and my son was happy with the swings outside and the free wi-fi. I was very happy with the extremely comfortable beds. The owner is very friendly and helpful as well.
