Overview

About the property

Amazing private log cabin

2 bedroom, 1 loft and 1 bath 100m2 (1100sqft) modern log cabin that sleeps 8, 6 in beds and 2 on a pullout. The cabin is about 1 hour drive from Reykjavik in the valley of Helludalur. It comes completely equipped and has everything you need for your stay including an outside hot tub perfect for enjoying the midnight sun in summer or the northern lights in winter.

It truly is the perfect base for exploring The Golden Circle, The South Coast and the Highlands, in fact one of Iceland's most famous natural site the erupting geysers at Geysir is only a short 15 minute walk away. Relax in the cabin or get out there exploring, I’ll be more than happy to help you plan your stay before you arrive and if you would like to take advantage of the many activities around then the agencies will all pick up at Geysir (3min drive). My goal as a host is to make sure you get the absolute most out of your stay!

Renew your relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in warm geothermal water or cosying it up on the sofa enjoying the view of the peaceful valley.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions and if you are ready to book then feel free to use the instant booking option.

Your host,

Runar .

Amazing cottage in icelands golden circle

The cottage was beautiful and very clean, it had everything including high quality linen

The hot tub was amazing especially after a big day sight seeing and there was many things to see and do near the cottage

Kristin was on call to answer any queries we had, very nice to deal with

Thanks again

Perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in several different places during our 8 day trip to Iceland, and this gem was definitely our favorite place of all. It was so well stocked with "extras" that it made cooking so much easier. Our only regret was not having enough time to just sit back and relax and walk around the area. It was so beautiful and serene. Hopefully we will be coming back to Iceland one day and this place will definitely be a place that we will stay at. We just got such a homey, warm, comfortable feeling while we were here. We unfortunately didn't have time to try out the hot tub....Next time!! Thank you for your hospitality! This is definitely a 5 star place!! - Karrie Brown Missouri, USA

It is an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying in this cabin! The location was, indeed, amazing! We were so lucky to be able to view the Northern Lights both nights we stayed there! I can't imagine what the NL show would have been had we not had a nearly full moon in the sky as well, but it was awesome anyway! The cabin was very cute and comfortable. The beds were great and the living area was super comfortable and homey. We had everything we needed while staying there. The cabin is located about 90 minutes from Reykjavic or 2 hours from KEF airport, so if you're more inclined to do the city thing, this might not be your best location. But . . . if you enjoy being out in the beautiful countryside and the peace and quiet with a chance to view the Northern Lights, this is your place. The added bonus is that this cabin is a five-minute drive to Geysir and about ten minutes to Gulfoss. We toured both locations in the evening -- after the tour buses had left for the day -- and enjoyed both without the crowds. It was totally awesome to have these super sites almost to ourselves! We also drove to Reykjavic and back one day and toured several things in the city and still made it back before suppertime, so it is definitely doable from this location.

My husband, adult son and I had plenty of space in this cabin. We didn't use the loft area at all because we only needed the two downstairs bedrooms. The stairs to the loft are a little steep, so just be aware of this if you are staying in the cabin with young kids.

Communication was great and detailed instructions that included photos were provided to help with getting to the cabin, opening the lock box and door as well as how to fill/clean the hot tub. I found the instructions really helpful! I would suggest that instructions on how to use the stove/oven would be very helpful. The stove is older and the settings are a little worn off, so I had to guess where to set them when cooking. Everything else was great! We would definitely stay there on our next trip to Iceland! We loved it there and our stay was way too short!

Thank you for making your cabin available for travelers like us!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed and somethings we didn't know we needed, all we had to do was explore. It was so nice to come back to our cozy cottage after a full day, fill the hot tub, and kick back knowing we were on our own time.

This place is definitely a do over.

Beautiful views and a well set-up place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful and the home was great!

It has everything you will need to enjoy your stay. Read the black book before you do anything else. Most of the info you will need is in there.

The views are spectacular, and it is very close to Gulfoss and Geysir.

If you aren't using it as a base for traveling, then this is the perfect Iceland get-a-way. We travelled daily from this location and it is a bit farther off the main thoroughfare than I liked. In my mind, it was a close, short drive to Selfoss and the rest of the ring road. Selfoss is about 45min drive.

Thank you to Kristen and Greta for helping ensure that our time here went flawlessly.
