Margret Hauksdottir for Maddy Design ehf. purchased this cottage in 2005
Extra comfortable and delightful lodge decor with fireplace. Great to relax in hot tub and sauna after a day's sightseeing. Enjoy the evenings and the fantastic view on the porch/ veranda.
This place was so wonderful, and Margret and Fredrik are terrific hosts, very responsive and helpful.
My husband and I stayed here for four nights with one other couple. We loved the location, and loved coming back to it after a day of hiking, etc., to cook dinner and to enjoy the hot tub. The one rainy day we had was saved by the fact that we could hang out and enjoy the views: the horses across the way, the mountains in the distance.
The kitchen has everything you could need, including the quietest dishwasher.
We agreed, it was one of the best things about our trip to Iceland. (and we had plenty of wonderful experiences!)
Our family (three generations) stayed for a week in this cottage. The cottage itself has everything you could want: beautiful and spacious views, a large deck and relaxing hot tub, and well-appointed inside. We also were extremely happy with the location: it's a charming, fairly secluded area but the nearby village of Borgarnes has everything you could need (groceries, wine/beer store, gas) and a swimming pool that we all really enjoyed (it has everything from waterslides to a little kid splash area to relaxing hot tubs, all with great views of the ocean and landscape). And, we could easily reach other interesting places. For example, we did a great little day trip to see the Hraunfossar waterfall and bathe in the geothermal pools at the Hotel Husafell. The owners were very welcoming and helped make our stay there a great success.
I cannot say enough about this property. The pictures don't do the home and setting justice! Located 15 minutes north of Borgarnes, it is the perfect location to explore the north western portion of Iceland. There are just too many sites to see, locations to visit and waterfalls to discover to list. We were within three 1/2 hours to Vik passing through Reykjavik ( 1 HR 20 min) , Selfoss ( 1 HR 45 min) etc. The house has all the amenities you would need for cooking to save $ on eating out. We were a family of 6 who fit in perfectly. There is a hot tub that was great for evenings after hiking and a sauna, although we didn't use it. The outdoor shower was perfect!!!
The wifi was strong and for $20 we signed up and used it all week long with no interruption.
the house is situated within a stones throw from a beautiful river with a farm and roaming horses across the way. Just really comfortable and scenic as well. Margret was very responsive to all communications and flexible on our check out allowing us to stay a bit longer on Saturday as we shuttled half our group back to the airport. Just really accommodating!!!
Shop at the Bonus in town and buy ALL of your alcohol at the duty free shop before leaving the airport. You will save 30%! No kidding with that....
Book this house, you will not regret it!!
This cottage was the perfect retreat for our small group of three friends on our annual hiking and sightseeing pilgrimage. It's secluded riverside location offered a relaxing, homey place to return to at the end of our long daily excursions around the countryside each day. It's location in close proximity to the charming town of Borgarnes gave us access to all of our needs for food, gas, etc. This location just to the north of Reykjavik in western Iceland was a good starting point for travel to many of the most popular attractions in the country. We were able to easily head for many destinations in the southern and western areas, and as far north as the Westfjords without any problem. The home is very clean and well kept, and offers a modern kitchen and other ammenities that helped make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. The views overlooking the river and mountains were both awe inspiring as well as relaxing. It was just perfect for us, and if what I've described resonates with you, then this property will more than satisfy and suit your needs. The owners were just fabulous and hospitable as well.
Our family (a dad, mom, granny, and 4 teens) truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was well-equipped with everything we could possibly need for our 4 days there. The owners were so friendly, helpful and promptly responsive to our needs. We enjoyed the beauty of the well-designed home and the exquisite setting with amazing views. The home was an oasis to return to after several long sight-seeing days in the area. We would return there in a heartbeat - both to enjoy the the property, as well as re-connect with the owners. Best wishes for your happy travels to Iceland!
We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house! We are shure, that (perhaps) only a few houses around the world are situated as fantastic as yours! We have to come back in summer to see flora and fauna and try fishing down in the river!
The house is very comfortable, well heated, very good equipment in kitchen! The hot tub is with fresh warm water, so very clean and without any chemicals.
Description and introduction to the house were perfect.
The owner was exceptionally friendly! He also helped us dealing with personal problems such as a telephone conversation with the car rental company .
He also told us about the acutally weather situation and the strong storm . So we felt safe and secure!
I would heartly recommend this house! We recommend the house to all who love nature and are looking for tranquility and seclusion .
We would love to come back some day. Kind regards from switzerland. Alexandra
