About Kristinn Karl

I am a 38 year old Industrial Engineer living in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland with my girlfriend Iris and our two wonderful boys, 5 and 7 year old. We love traveling around Iceland and around the world. Our favorite place is our cottage where we try to spend as much time as we can.

My favorite hobbies are skiing, golf and fly fishing. During the summer time I often work as a fly fishing guide in a salmon river called Laxá in Leirársveit.

What makes this cabin unique

This truly is home away from home. Enjoy evenings in the geothermal hot tub exploring the beautiful Nothtern lights or waking up on beautiful summer days with a breathtaking waterfront and mountain view.

  • 5 of 5

Kristinn met us at the Cottage and was very helpful and informative. It had all the amenities we needed in order to make our stay comfortable. The views were awesome. The hot tub is a huge plus especially after any rigorous activity during the day. Selfoss shopping and grocery were close by. The cottage is very quiet and the beds were super comfy. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed four nights June 2018. The location, privacy, and the layout of the cottage itself was perfect for our family of 5 with much room to spare. Everything we needed was available to us and an added bonus was having a washer/dryer as well as the hot tub. Kitchen set up was easy and efficient. The location was excellent for exploring the golden mile. Kristin made himself readily available for questions. We would certainly stay again! Barbara, USA

Amazing, quaint, and so comfy

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our families. It was so quaint and comfy. Such a beautiful home. The kids loved the little fort tree house and the soccer goals in the yard. I wish we would have booked this house for a longer stay. The location was great the view was beautiful. We loved the geothermal heated hot tub! I hope to return someday!

Amazing views, private n quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice, cozy, comfortable n a central location for points of interest n either direction. The amenities are all there for guests to use. It’s off the main road but close to rd1, so it’s private. The hot pot is great after a long day of driving n sight seeing. The beds are comfortable too. The owner Kristinn was always available if needed. The info booklet he has on the local area was very helpful. We went to areas listed n had a great time. The Ice cream place n the tomato restaurant was great!!! There were 6 of us adults and were very pleased with Kristinns place. Would recommend it if your looking for a place n the south, that’s feels like home😃?
