Bright and spacious new cottage, great location.
This cottage is located in South Iceland, in a peaceful place in the countryside, right by the Golden Circle and only 50 min drive from Reykjavík City Center. You will find this beautiful house both spacious and comfortable.
The cottage has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms provide sleeping accommodation for two people, one bedroom provides sleeping accommodation for one adult and one child and the fourth bedroom sleeps one person. There is a wardrobe in the biggest bedroom and all other bedrooms have large drawers for guests to put their clothes and other things in.
The bathroom has a nice shower and a washing machine.
The kitchen and the living room are open plan, giving the cottage a bright and spacious feel. All common kitchen utensils are in the kitchen including a fridge, freezer, toaster and coffee maker for the convenience of guests.
In the living room there is a sofa, a TV with a DVD player and a beautiful fireplace. The windows are tall, allowing plenty of natural light to saturate the living space. These gorgeous windows provide a lovely view as they are overlooking the circle of mountains nearby.
There is also a cosy living room upstairs.
A large wooden deck surrounds the cottage so you can catch the sun all day and also enjoy the midnight sun in the summertime.

About Bragi Már Unnsteinsson
My name is Bragi. I bought this piece of land in 2008 to build a summerhouse. The location seemed perfect, not to far from Kópavogur, where I live, and surrounded with beautiful landscape. The next few years, with some help of course, I built and furnished this house.
Bragi Már Unnsteinsson purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Bragi Már Unnsteinsson chose Southern Region
The location is ideal for people who want to take short day trips to various beautiful places in South and West Iceland, as to the Reykjanes peninsula. The house is literally located on the Golden Circle, yet it is in a private and quiet area.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is very bright and spacious, recently furnished and has a very large wooden deck all around. There is amazing bird life in the area. Just a few minute drive to the beautiful golf course at Kiðjaberg and an equally short drive to the nice swimming pool at Borg.

Lovely stay in Iceland
We had a great stay at this property. Bragi was a good host with good communication and helpful. The property was just as described, lovely and clean as well. The location was great and it was good to be further away from towns so we don't have light pollution and looked out for the northern lights every night. We got lucky and saw them too! It felt very secure and was a great location for sight seeing and visiting spots on the golden circle & nearby. The secrect lagoon in Fludir was well worth a visit and not far. We didn't realise we had to buy wood for the fireplace so it took us a awhile to find a shop that sold some but the
Olis petrol station had some , so in hindsight or for your stay get some on the way to the house.
The underfloor heating was good and warmed the house nicely. Puzzles and a few games were supplied which was nice and quite a few leaflets about attractions.
To our delight the house did have wifi too , so that made it easier keeping in contact with family. The kitchen had all utensils we needed and helpful extra bits like seasoning for food. We felt terrible bothering Bragi at 4am to buzz us out of the gate to the area but he was lovely about it and said it was problem at all. A very good host. There was a hot tub too but we never got around to use it , we'll just have to go back!
I would recommend this owner and this property to a friend. Thank you for our stay.
Cozy / Comfy Cottage in a Fantastic Location
This cottage is in a superb location, and is well furnished for families enjoying the Golden Circle. The night sky view from the deck is spectacular for northern lights.
It is very close to nearby attractions and restaurants. Check out Fludir when you can. (secret lagoon, and a great Ethiopian food joint)
The house is well stocked with amenities and the heating works surprisingly well (heated by hot water pipes running throughout the floor). Bragi is an amazing host willing to help anytime.
Thanks for sharing your home with us..

Lovely! Great location for golden circle.
Very clean and modern.
Stunning cozy beautiful inside and out!!
We loved our stay at your cottage! It was spacious and charming. The beds were comfy and the hot tub was soothing after a day of hiking. The owner was so responsive and helpful. GREAT location to see many wonderful sights!
Perfect / centrally located location to explore Iceland from
We loved outlet trip to Iceland and were. Sry happy with the accommodations. The house was large, clean and very comfortable and the location was great for seeing the southern half of Iceland.
The washing machine was efficient and handy after long days of hiking. The only surprise was that there was no dryer for clothes - but there was a clothes line (we ran inside on a cold day) and a large drying rack.
I thought Iceland would be a one and done location - but now hope to go back in the coming years.
Really spacious and comfrtable
The Cottage offers room for even a big family. It is very clean and there is everything you need for vacation. We made day trips to the attractions of golden circle, went to the highlands and Reykjavik and enjoyed the hot pot in the evening. Although the cottage is in area with several other cottages you have the Impression of being almost alone. Funny for us: the floor of the cottage is permanently heated with pipes of hot water. If it is too hot, open the window.
This beautiful cottage is ideally located for active people who want to enjoy the comfort of staying in one place, while being able to see various places of beautiful Icelandic nature, as well as being close to the city's culture. Easy to take day trips to various locations both in South and West Iceland. It is a 35 min. drive to Þingvellir. Geysir and Gullfoss are 30 min. away and the Blue Lagoon is 80 min. drive. A day trip to Jökulsárlón is really worth while, driving through breathtaking scenes. Taking the ferry to Vestmanneyjar is also a big favourite. The town Selfoss is only 15 min away and the town Hveragerði is just 17 min away. There you will find all necessary services: Medical service, Supermarkets, Gas stations, Restaurants, Banks, Pharmacy, Liquor store, Museum, Golf Course, etc. There are many public pools with hot tubs in the area. Try the ones in Borg, Selfoss or Hveragerði! Ideal to visit after a busy day of activity in this beautiful area.
