het huisje was niet schoon toen wij er aan kwamen
het huisje was oke maar moet beter schoongemaakt worden voordat er nieuwe gasten komen.Locatie van het huisje was prachtig
Beautiful cottage, really warm and clean. Stunning views. Has everything you need for your stay.
We stayed at this beautiful cottage at the beginning of February. Arnar met us with the keys and phone for the gates and was very friendly and helpful. We found the cottage easily with Oddny's directions. The cottage itself was very warm, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Absolutely perfect for our stay. Being able to have a glass of wine in the hot tub whilst it was snowing was amazing. We hired a car and did our own siteseeing which was great. I thoroughly recommend booking in to visit the Secret Lagoon which is quite close to the cottage. It is alot smaller than the Blue Lagoon, alot less commercialized with a slightly more intimate experience. We also drove to the Geysers, parked up and walked up to those. Had a coffee in the restaurant by the Geysers. If you are planning on visiting a supermarket I suggest you go to a Bonus supermarket, it has a giant pig on the sign. This the most reasonably priced supermarket. All in all this was a fabulous weekend and we definitely plan to go back again.
Homey Country Cottage with Great Viewpoint on the Golden Circle
Authentic cottage with well stocked kitchen. Cozy and comfortable for a long winter nights. The hot tub is an added bonus. This cottage is for you if you want to get away from all the tourist and relax. It is on top of a hill with great views overlooking the valley.. Geyser is about 4-5 miles down the road and Pingvelier park is about 40 minutes away. Its a good central point to for a few days in Iceland. Stock up on groceries at Bonus before you come (to save money).
Great central location, terrific view, bright, comfortable, well appointed cottage
We loved this four bedroom cottage for our 5-night stay in the Golden Circle. It is bright and comfortable, located within a reasonable drive of most "must-see" attractions in Iceland, quiet, and has great views of mountains and the valley. Everything we needed was provided, instructions were clear, and the owners are quite hospitable. The hot tub was a real treat under the stars and the fireplace was welcome on a cool evening. Loved it!
Splendid location with privacy and great views
We (four friends and I) spent three nights here. It was a joy to deal with the owners and we certainly appreciated their patience. We had several humorous moments just getting the keys and finding the cottage (thank you Oddný and Arnaut for all your help :-) ) We accidently broke a bracket in the shower, and the owner was very understanding about it.
The property is located just off the main road, in a rural community of cottages, but the directions to get to it were not evident using our vehicle's GPS. So, if you have a vehicle with GPS, don't always trust it. We used our Google Maps (it was much more accurate than the vehicle's equipment), which took us right to the property once we had the correct house number.
This location is perfect for seeing the northern and eastern portions of the Golden Circle region. We had a rather ambitious itinerary (Gullfoss, Geyser, Kerið Crater, Katla, Keldur, Fridheima Farm, Seljalandsfoss, Thingvellir, Vik, and much more) and it would not have been possible to accomplish had we stayed in another area.
The cottage was cozy, warm, and more than adequate room for the five of us. The morning sun through the windows was quite welcoming for our days' adventures. Although we only cooked breakfast there, it has all the amenities needed for every meal, and there are stores close enough for those last minute needs (we shopped in Reykjavik before arriving. Several restaurants in the area had splendid offerings, if you choose to dine out (which we did). I would highly recommend this cottage for a Golden Circle get away. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
Great lodge in fantastic setting.
We have just returned from a week stay in a lovely well equipped family lodge. Oddny very helpful throughout the planning and also when we lost our way when almost there ( a 4WD is a must at this time of year, steep and snowy/icy track to get to the lodge). I paid by bank transfer, and collected the keys and gate phone from Oddny at a garage out of Reykjavik, neither of which was a problem. The only issue we found that as 2 families visiting, there was only 1 gate phone and quite often had to ring a lot to let each other in, we tried from our own phones but this didn't seem to work.
The lodge is perfectly situated to visit all the golden circle sites and some we done twice they were that beautiful. The lodge has stunning views and gave us fantastic views of the aurora most nights of our stay which we feel very lucky to have had. A visit to Laugarvatn spa is also highly recommended.
A fantastic base for making memories.
Our cottage is located in utlhlid, an area close to many of the main attractions in south of Iceland but also a quiet and grown area. In the closest are around the cottage are hiking trails, golf courses outdoor swimming pools, horse rentals and other activities. Only 10 kilometers away from the cottage you will find the famous geysir geothermal area and the golden waterfall. On the glacier langjökull there is a rental for skidoos. Daytours can be made to hekla volcano, thjorsardalur valley, the black sand beaches at vik, thingvellir national park, glacier hiking at solheimajökull glacier, spa in laugarvatn village and so much more. At the cottage you can relax on the very nice patio and enjoy the midnight sun during summer or the northern lights during winter time.
