About Helga Marin

I am an inspirational speaker, life coach, health and wellness coach and a teacher and my purpose in life is to inspire people to unleash their full potential and become the best versions of themselves. I inherited the cottage along with the property it was built on 4 years ago and I have been renting it out ever since. My goal is to provide my guests with an authentic Icelandic experience and I do my best to meet all their requirements. I have met people from all over the world which has been wonderful. I even married my first guest who stayed at my house summer 2015.

Why Helga Marin chose Hveragerði

The main house on the property was built by my grandmother who was also the first woman to drive a car and a motorcycle in Iceland. She was a remarkable woman who faught for women's rights and was driven to help people whenever she could. She was a midwife and the head of the midwife association in Reykjavik. She originally built the main house for the midwifes but later the house became a summerhouse for the family. After her passing, my mother inherited the main house and she and my father built the cottage in the garden. It was originally built for guests that came to visit the family during holidays.

What makes this house unique

The cottage is cozy and spacious and is equipped with everything one needs for a comfortable stay. It is very peaceful and quiet here which my guests greatly appreciate. Hveragerdi is a beautiful small town and you are surrounded by beautiful nature. There are many hiking and walking trails that those who are interested can enjoy. We also have an amazing swimming pool and one of the best natural hot spring in Iceland you can enjoy swimming in all year around.

Our goal is to meet our guests requirements so that they can have a wonderful stay.

Adorable cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Helga’s - the cottage is sweet and peaceful and her hospitality was very welcoming. The town had some great restaurants (highly recommend the pizza place!), and my husband enjoyed a hike into the hills at midnight, and had plenty of company up there.

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great place in an awesome location. It is centrally located to many things that we did. We ended our Golden Circle tour here. And followed that up with a hike to the hot springs, the tour at the nearby Lava Tubes and a stop at the Kerid Volcanic crater. Our host Helga had a fresh loaf of baked bread when we arrived, which was delicious. The accommodations were perfect for our family of four (two children ages 9 and 12). Highly recommended.

Very cute and comfortable in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

This little house is a perfect spot for a small group or family. Its easy access to the local sites and the greater Golden Circle area. The space is clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is small, but functionable. Lots of windows to let the sun in. We had the whole backyard to ourselves and the only neighbors we saw where the cute chickens from next door. We walked into town for some nice pizza and beer. A charming place in a great location.

Aunque el numero de la calle no era la correcta, la estancia ha sido muy agradable.

Una habitacion doble es algo pequeña y la otra cama esta dentro del salon.

La casa es toda de madera natural muy agradable y buenas vistas al jardin.

En Islandia esto es un lujo.
