About the property

Great location the Golden circle. Cosy and comfortable with hot tub and view!

Cottage with a View in Golden Circle is a holiday home situated near Reykholt, nettled on a hillside with 7 other cottages but each one is very private. The property has an outside geothermal hot tub, small kitchen with a dining table, nice sitting area, one bathroom with a shower, free WiFi and a flat screen TV with local stations. Big porch facing south with BBQ and outdoor furniture. Bed-linen and towels included. Restaurants, supermarket and swimming pools close by. One hour and 15 min. drive from Reykjavik, 2 hours drive from Keflavik airport. Easy access to the cottage from main road. This property is rented on exclusive basis - nothing shared.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom has a 160 cm wide bed, the second bedroom has a bunk bed, the lower bed is 120 cm wide and the upper is 80 cm wide. The third bedroom is very small with a bed that is only 80 wide and our guests usually use that bedroom for their luggage. There is also a newly made guesthouse which has a 160 cm wide bed. Bed linen included.

After an extended search for a nice, comfortable, cozy vacation home in the ideal location we bought our cottage just one year ago (2015). The view is breathtaking and the sunrise is amazing on a clear day. You can enjoy watching in the distance Iceland´s famous volcano, Hekla, through the windows of the living room. We always try to greet our guests on arrival and show them them the property and advise them about the area, local activities and interesting sights to visit. We have also made a guide book for our guests with useful information about the house and things to do in the area. The guidebook is on hand in the the cottage but can also send it by email to our guests before they arrive. Check in is preferred between 15:00 and 18:00 pm but if not possible then we can leave the key for you to access the cottage outside of those hours. We are also more than willing to buy groceries for our guests at no extra cost. In the summer time that includes produce from the local area: bio vegetables, meat and fish.

About Andrea & Ben

Andrea & Ben purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Andrea & Ben chose Southern Region

Fantastic location in the heart of the Golden Circle. Easy access, great view, geothermal hot tub. Enjoy the aurora borealis sitting in the hot tub in winter is a great experience. Close to restaurants and many local attractions.

Tolles Cottage für den Start unserer Reise

  • 5 of 5

Super gemütliches und sehr gut ausgestattetes Cottage. Highlights im Golden Circle sind gut erreichbar. Die gut organisierten und sehr sympathischen Vermieter haben ein Dossier mit Infos zum Cottage, zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten und zur Verpflegung erstellt.

Tolle, schöne Unterkunft und Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Schöne Wohnung mit viel Platz und Privatsphäre. In der Nähe sind noch 4 bis 5 Häuser, die aber jedes für sich abgeschottet sind. Ein Fussballplatz und kleiner Spielplatz sind vorhanden. Ein kleines Dorf ist 3min entfernt, mit Restaurant ... Eigener Hot Pot, einfach zu bedienen. Vermieter waren sehr nett und haben sofort geantwortet wenn man Fragen hatte. In einem Ordner waren die wichtigsten Dinge und Ziele gesammelt. Die Lage mitten im Golden circle ist toll für die bekanntesten Sehenswürdigkeiten.
