Beautiful, amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

Finding the property was a little challenging as everywhere was covered in snow, once found we were not disappointed. It was lovely taking a hot shower outside, and siting in the hot tub under the stars an ‘added bonus’. Didn’t get to catch the Northern Lights, I guess this will be a great excuse to go back. The view looking over the lakes were stunning!

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

Was advertised with a bath which did not exist. Contacted owner and he sent an edited version, with the date and time which he had edited it whilst I was staying there! There are no wardrobes or drawers in the bedrooms so we had to live out of our suitcases which were placed on the settes. very disappointed although the owner has now accepted my request for a partial refund .

Owner's Response: Dear Angela, this is not fair- we clearly say the shower is outside and it has been from the beginning there has never been a bath inside the we just adjusted the text to make it more clear- We came directly to meet with you at the cottage when we hear from you- we even did refund you.- Best regards. Arnar, Anna & Gestur.

Private Paradise In Iceland

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a most wonderful 5 day holiday staying at the “Paradise Cottage” in Iceland. We are Air BnB and HomeAway regulars and therefor have a great deal of experience staying with variety of hosts. Gestur was one of the best. Communicating with him via email or text was always easy. He was courteous and responsive to all my questions. We also rented a car form him and when I had concerns regarding payment, insurance etc, he made the effort to alleviate my anxiety. We even had a flat tire on the last day of our holiday and he replaced the car with another! All went well.

Regarding the cottage, the description is accurate in all respects. The only thing to remember is that the shower is outside the cottage near the hot tub. It has ample hot water and easy to get to. Rest assured you will have a private and quiet retreat. If you prefer not being in the city but close enough to drive to Reykjavik ( 15 minutes), I would not hesitate to rent from Gestur.

It doesn't get better

  • 5 of 5

If I could buy this place, I would do so today. Been there now twice, once in the summer and once in the winter and we loved it both times. The view, the peace, the kitchen, the wood burner and certainly the outdoor hot tub overlooking no-man's land. Simply fabulous. Will be back. Definitely. Tobi, Britannia House, Lymington, UK

Perfect Honeymoon/Escape

  • 5 of 5

Fabulously isolated location perfect for a quiet escape, yet still close enough to the capital city for access to excursions, shopping and site seeing. Simply the best location for that retreat from the modern world, didn't want to leave and can't wait to return.

Stayed for 4 nights, in early November, great time, fabulous facilities and owner couldn't do enough to help us during our stay. Great base to explore the island or just get away from it all, which is what we did and had an excellent stay.
