Perfect location on Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well kept cottage was perfect for our itinerary. It's location was central for the places we wanted to visit - Geysir, Gullfoss, Brurarfoss, Laugarvartn Fontana, Thingvellir, Selfoss, Vik, Hveragerdi. It was well equipped and comfortable for our family of 6 (4 adult kids). It was easy to find and less than an hour from Reykjavik. We enjoyed sunsets in the hot tub while "the guys" played video games. We cooked many meals at "home" and were well equipped to do so. Having laundry available was key for our family of explorers. Our hosts Thor and Sigrud were very helpful prior to our arrival with answers to any questions we had. Our trip to Iceland was amazing - having a comfortable "home base" made it all the more enjoyable. Hope to return someday. :)

Perfect cottage in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 4 nights at the Lava Cottage. We enjoyed it tremendously. It's a quaint little cottage, clean and fully stocked with everything you might need. Each day we ventured out in various directions and were able to see a multitude of sights within easy driving distance. This cottage is exactly what we were looking for in Iceland! Thank you Thor & Sigrun

lovely house,fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The five of us had a wonderful stay at the house, it was centrally located for our needs in relation to all the places we wanted to visit.(Golden Circle, Black sand beach, Skogafoss etc.)

Thor was helpful in every way.

The hot tub was amazing at -10 degrees, we all loved it.

The house was very warm, extremely tidy and functioned very well for our needs

If we returned to iceland, we would definitely choose this house as our base.

Thanks very much

Brilliant location, very clean accommodation, perfect for the northern lights.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Location perfect, all major attractions close. Accommodation clean with fresh clean bedding and towels. It was just what we expected, if not more.

Thor was more than happy to help with all our questions before and while we were there. Plenty of tips, good advice, maps of the area and easy travel instruction before we left for Iceland. so easy and straightforward to get to accommodation.

Would recommend a trip here.... It was the perfect holiday! Loved it!

Idyllic cottage in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this lovely cottage. It was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed and more. Thor provided excellent directions and the arrangements for gaining access worked perfectly. The kids loved the play station and we all enjoyed the movie box and the hot tub although we only got time to use the latter once. The cottage is in a good location to get to all the sights in the south west corner of iceland including the golden circle. It's location feels quite remote which was a good thing for us, but meant a quick trip to the shops or restaurant wasn't possible. Locally we'd recommend the Book Cafe and the Kronan supermarket in Selfoss and the Skyrgerdin Restaurant in Hveragerdi, as well as the walk up to the hot river for a swim from there.
