About the property

Sleeps 2 in an open loft. 1 bathroom

Charming cottage in a cozy and peaceful area. Perfect for an adventurous holiday in the Icelandic countryside. Thirty min. from the capital plus nearby access routes to the beautiful south and south west. Doing the well known Golden Circle is perfect from the cottage with Thingvellir 30 min. away on the same route. Icelands highest waterfall Glymur in Hvalfjordur and the beautiful hiking trail leading to it is not far.

The entire Hvalfjordur area is beautiful and magnificent in its own right and worth enjoying. The cottage sleeps 2 with a double bed in an upstairs loft.

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

I hate to say this, because it will make it harder to find this place available again, but, in the interest of fairness, I have to say that this was the nicest home I have stayed in. The area, the layout, everything about the home was fantastic. The Host was the most helpful I have run across. We were snowed in and loved every minute of it. When the sky cleared we were able to drive through some incredibly breath taking scenery.

Ideal place for a trip to Iceland

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything you need and is in a great location. Can sleep 4 comfortably, but we just had 2 and used the bed in the upstairs loft.

Only drawback might be that it's far away from restaurant and grocery store options, but as we quickly learned most things far from grocery stores and restaurants in Iceland because there isn't much in terms of food options outside of Reykjavik.

Be aware too, that there is a gate you have to undo to open and close each time when leaving. Wasn't and big issue, for me, but it might be difficult for some.

Also, some rentals in Iceland charge per mile for overages, so look into this location and think about how far you'll be driving to see what you want to see.

All that said, those are important items to note, but they're minor vs how great and affordable this place is. Pick up some groceries and use the kithen, which is fully equipped and will save a bunch on food.

Plus Siggi is one of the best owners to work with, so do your research to make sure the location works, and if it does than I would definitely recommend staying here.

Peaceful location and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The owner was amazing to work with and extremely helpful and responsive. We stayed for 3 nights in mid October. It was a perfect location to return to every night. Nice to have a comfortable place to call home when traveling and we loved having the fireplace in the evenings. It was a beautiful and quiet location and was perfect for taking day trips to southern and western Iceland, including into Reykjavik. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Magnifique cottage dans un cadre enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Le cottage est magnifique, dans un cadre enchanteur, très tranquille et entouré d'arbres. Situé au bord d'un fjord offrant de nombreuses possibilités de randonnées, proche du cercle d'or et de Reyjkjavik.

Siggi est très serviable et atteignable facilement, la maison est très propre et dispose de tous les équipements nécessaires. Il faut monter des escaliers assez raide pour atteindre la chambre à coucher en mezzanine. Le salon est très cosy (on n'avait même plus envie de sortir visiter!) et la cuisine et la salle de bain bien équipées.

Nous avons passé 5 jours et avons profité des nombreux guides à disposition dans le salon pour découvrir les environs. Ne manquez pas la randonnée à la cascade de Glymur!

Je recommanderais définitivement ce cottage à toute personne visitant l'Islande!

The Hvalfjordur fjord is one of the most attractive and magnificent big fjords in Iceland and very close to the capital. From the cottage you can go further west as well as taking the route to the magnificent south cost. It is a 30 min.drive to Reykjavik as well as a 30 min. drive to Thingvellir and from there further south. Doing The Golden Circle from the cottage is the thing to do.
