Nice cottage in the Golden Cirlce

  • 5 of 5

We took this house without to know what happens cause i had my doubts that its in the middle of nowhere.

I needed to find out that i was totally wrong!

In the middle of the "golden circle" gaves this house a lot of opportunities to visit the South, Reykjavik (1 hour drive with no stress) and the Golden Circle.

The owner (David and Kolbrun) helped us out at any questions and welcome us with a warm house. (Nice in Winter).

We need to come back and to see the Vestman Islands the next time.

We had a great stay.

Beautiful and brand new inside, little house 😀

  • 5 of 5

I loved it, very nice and clean little house. Two bedrooms with grate double beds, nice bathroom with a shower, and a wonderful kitchen well maintained. Bright, livingroom. David the owner waited for us and was very friendly. I would love to come again and stay in this plase. It is close to the Golden circle and Kerið and only 15 min drive to Selfoss town, where we could shop.
