the real Iceland experience

  • 5 of 5

Your easy drive to this cottage is incredibly amazing. What you see around you is not found in any book. The cottage was easy to use for our family of four . The heat and hot water are great and the fire place is an added bonus. The water from the faucet taste so good it makes your tea or coffee taste even better. The kitchen functions really well we cooked a lot in it. WiFi works well. Beds are super comfortable

You will do nothing here but enjoy yourself. You can walk the hills around you and check out the crystal clear river with apple fish in it. You have easy access to the golden circle from here.

Icelandic summer house in a gated country setting with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Our family, which consisted of a 9 and 11 year old, had a lot of activities planned from Reykjavik (40 minutes away) all the way to down to Vik, as well as northeast past Hekla to Landmannalaugar hot springs and needed a strategic location to call home for a week where all our destinations were reachable via driving between 10 minutes (Porufus waterfall) to 3 hours.

This comfortable, clean, house had it all, 3 bedrooms, (two of which had twin Bunk beds). Full kitchen, living room, and one bathroom, all with newly installed wood walls that provided a fresh wood scent throughout the space. There was also a wood burner if you wanted a fire, or simply turn on the wall mounted heaters to keep it comfortable like we did. From the backdoor, you emerge on to a wraparound deck containing a weber propane grill with a full set of chairs, one of which I found myself sunbathing in for an hour upon arriving the first day. In the distance you hear the gurgle of a nearby stream. The private yard is full of native plants, flowers and trees, two of which we found contained bird nests and freshly laid eggs. Every day during breakfast our family studied the nearby mountain through the house’s large double pane windows always finding new details.

I highly recommend this summer house if you want a private, comfortable, location for exploring the Southwest and Northwest sides of Iceland.

1 trip to iceland

  • 4 of 5

The house met our expectations. It was nice and clean and located in the most beautiful scenery. The only thing missing was a toaster. There was too much private clothes in the chest of drawers and food in the freezer.

But all in all a good experience and we would recommend it to others.

Spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this home. The views were spectacular from the large, two tiered deck. We loved the fact that we could hike the whole area and that a waterfall was very close to the property. The kids enjoyed picking the bilberries that grow right on the property. This home was the perfect place to relax after enjoying the Golden Circle, Reyjkavik, and Vik. We were sorry that we had to leave and will miss the big cozy blankets on all the beds and the wonderful fireplace.

Beautiful summer home - central and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience we had at the summer home! It's located just about 15 min outside of the main part of Mosfellbaer. This was the perfect base from which to explore the North, West and South of Iceland. We did day trips to the North (Vatsnes Peninsula, Borganes and Akranes, Husafell and Icelandic Goat Center, Snaefellsjokull Peninsula) and South (Reykjanes Peninsula, Reykjavik, Selfoss, Vik) easily, nothing was more than 2.5 - 3 hours away. Golden Circle sites are very convenient.

The home was also very child friendly. We traveled with our 3.5 year old and she was so comfortable in the home. They have a small play house outside, a sandbox and tons of toys and English language TV shows / movies appropriate for small children. We enjoyed the fire place most nights but the space heaters also kept the rooms toasty at night.
