Great location and clean. Beautiful scenery. Ideal for day trips in South Iceland. Very friendly owners with a good sense of humor. Perfect vacation home.
Thanks for this great review and how you leaft the cottage clean 👍👌
Very nicely finished cabin. Beds comfortable, feather comforters, warm heated floors, amazing hot tub, great views, easy drive to all we wanted to see.
Absolutely perfect location for exploring the southern part of Iceland. Remote enough to feel private and close enough to stores and restaurants. Heated floors made the whole place feel warm and cozy. The bedding was surprisingly warm and comfortable. My number one dream of seeing northern lights was achieved on our final night, a magical vacation. Very lovely, wouldnt hesitate to highly reccomend this home!!!!
Great Location with Lovely Views
This property met all our needs for location and size for two couples. It was clean and well appointed. The hot tub in the evening was an added plus after a long days hiking. We wanted to be outside of Reykjavik and closer to hikes, etc. (the city is an easy 35min drive). We were staying a week and kept our hiking and site seeing to the south west part of the island to give a relaxed time to explore. We had plenty to do and the weather was perfect for hiking and other activities. Like most places these days, don't listen to weather forecasts and always be prepared for either rain or sun. There is a lovely hike right behind the house (Lyngdalsheioi Mt. about 3000ft) that takes about 2 1/2 hrs and provides spectacular views. Keep your camera handy!
We had read that eating out is expensive, so we cooked in most nights, taking sandwiches with us during the day. Selfoss is about 10-12mins away and has a well stocked super market (Kronens) and liquor store.
Make sure your phones will work in Iceland. Some US companies do not have good coverage. You will need to contact the owners by phone upon arrival so the security gate can be raised. This occurred to us on first arriving, and also when we finally left and had to wait for another house owner to show up to use the gate remote key. When you do get to the house, a gate remote is available for use during your stay.
Thank you for your review. In it you seam to be very content with the cottage. As we strive to have everything perfect I was wandering if there was anything that we cold do better because you did not give us full house of stars and that is the first time we get less so we would like to know why.
All the best,
Örn and Ingunn
This was the best part of our honeymoon
Perfectly comfortable, amazing view, great location to post up for a week in Iceland.. and I'm picky. Orn was incredibly responsive and helpful. I lost my car keys and spent over an hour frantically looking for them so we could checkout in time. Orn told me no problem... even though I knew he had to clean for the next guest.... keys were on the window sill in the kitchen.
Thank's for your nice review and thank you for leaving the cottage so clean.
All the best to you both
Örn and Ingunn
Welcome Warmth in June
The house is lovely, warm and cosy. The location is great for sight seeing in the Southern Region. There is so much more to explore but we managed to see the key sights within 1.5 to 2 hours drive - Geysirs, Pingvellir National Park, Solheimjokull glacier, and the many waterfalls along the way. We hope we can return... one day! Icelandic summer is awesome, even when it rains.
Swimming pools are several in the area. The closest one Minniborg and Hraunborgir distans 10min.drive. Also in the nearest town of Selfoss only 15 min. drive.
