"My family had a great week staying at Hofdatun, with Thorey giving a very warm welcome from the start. The house is great, with lots of space, very comfortable, and in a good location for seeing the Golden Circle and South coast at a pleasant pace.
Also a great location if you want to see the Northern Lights. We saw them 3 nights out of 7.
We would definitely stay there again if we're fortunate enough to be able to visit Iceland again."

"I just recently returned from a 6 night stay with 5 friends. The apartment is the perfect size for a group of 5 to 6 adults. We were much more comfortable than we would have been staying in a hotel because the apartment had everything we needed including a washing machine. Location wise, you couldn't ask for more....it's within walking distance to 2 of the best restaurants in the city not to mention all of the local bars and shops. Yes, it is noisy on Thursday night - Saturday night but so is any downtown area. The locals party hard.
Burkni was extremely accommodating and let our group not only check in early after a long flight but he also let us check out late. He also gave us some great tips about local places to eat and drink and also clued us in to a site for tracking the Aurora Borealis. If I'm lucky enough to visit Iceland twice I would definitely stay here again."

"I booked the house for a week long spring break trip for myself and 3 college friends. We absolutely loved the house, the location, and the owners! The first day the owner's father met us at the house and showed us around. He was very nice, and even left some bread and jam! In addition, the whole house was fully stocked with everything we needed for the week. All communication with Kristin was very easy, the whole process was very smooth.
In our week we saw water falls, a geysir, tectonic plates, glaciers, volcanoes, black sand beaches, swam in a hot springs, explored Reykjavik and much much more!
We visited March 7th-15th, so it was still a bit wintery out. But the weather didn't take away from the experience and meant there were very few crowds!
Here is a video we made of our trip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI2z3coVXs4
I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting Iceland!"

"Just booked this on the off chance and so glad we did. The cottage was warm, comfortable and welcoming. The weather wasn't great (really cold) but this did little to spoil our stay. I would recommend this little place to everyone, wonderful people, lovely town really great.
Book it up now!!"
