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 .

What a wonderful property, perfectly located and with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in February 2018 during heavy snowfall. Wow this property didn’t disappoint, in fact it was pretty perfect! It had everything we needed and was warm and cosy whilst it was very cold outside. Our first morning just as we wondering how we would be able to leave the property to go exploring just as a tractor and snow plough appeared to create a path to the main road - perfect! You do need a 4x4 in the winter but this is clear in the property details when booking so we had no problems whatsoever.

The cabin is about 3 minutes from Geysir, with Faxi, Kerio and Gulfoss all close by - it is perfect to explore the golden circle.

Our second night we were also lucky enough to see the northern lights - a perfect end to our days exploring!

The cabin was clean and tidy and had lots of little extras to make the stay homely. The kitchen has lots of herbs, spices and oils to help when cooking too - everything had been thought off.

I couldn’t recommend this cabin enough and we hope to come back to stay in the summertime to see a different side of the wonderful landscapes.

Perfection, I will return again.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay and we loved the cabin as much as we did the first time. Going in winter made it super different. Totally stunning. It had everything we needed. We made great use of the hot tub, walked to geyser a couple of times. We ventured all around.

Runar the owner was amazing, due to storms we had some challenges moving around some days but he was a superstar always available with great advice. He really had our best interests at heart. A great host to rent from.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described. Easy to find and very helpful directions and info. Only very limited groceries and restaurants locally, so need to stock up before leaving Reykjavík. That’s ok. It just requires planning beforehand. Good location for all the local sights. Would recommend.

Terrific Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay and were lucky to see an amazing display of the Northern Lights on our last night. As for the cabin, everything was exactly as described. The cabin was clean, spacious, and well-appointed. The hot tub was quite a treat.

There was a decent selection of DVDs for older kids and adults. FYI, DVDs from the United States are not compatible with non-US players. For our young kids, we were easily able to sign in to our Netflix account.

Thanks for a great vacation.
