Everything You Could Want!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this cottage and it's owner, Kristin. The cottage is located beneath a beautiful mountain, very easy to find and close to Geysir. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, as well as the ability to walk to Geysir after hours and enjoy Strokkur by ourselves. The cottage is filled with everything needed to make a great stay - comfortable bedding and seating, dishes, towels, DVDs, music, even coffee, sugar and dish detergent. We really lacked nothing. Kristin and Bjarni are absolutely wonderful. From the first contact, you can tell they want your visit to be the best it can be. They have outlined everything very clearly from running the hot tub to working the heaters to finding hidden spots to visit. They are accessible at all times for questions and are truly willing to help. I highly recommend either of their cottages - you will not regret staying here!

Stunning cabin in a great area of the Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

This cabin provided all of what we required and more, we stayed here for 3 out of 7 nights of our holiday and could quite easily have spent the whole time there! The only negative is the area on the home description is out by quite a way, as Selfoss is a long drive from the actual location which is two minutes from Geysir!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The cottage is about 40 minutes drive from Selfoss . I have tried to amend the area description in the ad without success. I really do not know why it connects ro Selfoss in the adxertisment. We are in tge Golden circle though in a beautiful spot. Not close to Selfoss if you want to stay near that town.

Lovely cabin in beautiful valley

  • 5 of 5

We wish we could have stayed longer at this lovely log cabin in a quiet valley surrounded by open space and mountain background. We had so many nearby sights to see that we wanted more time to enjoy the cabin itself. The cabin was comfortable and fully equipped. The host responded quickly to our questions. The only drawback was that the water wasn't quite hot enough for us for the outdoor hot tub. We would love to return if we are in Iceland again!

Cosy cottage in very good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful white Christmas in Kristin's cottage. Everything was as described or better! The beds were very comfortable and it was great to have a tub outside to scout for northern lights (although we were unlucky and did not see any).

Kristin was very helpful, always responding to messages within an hour or so. She also provided several instruction manuals to the cabin and guides for how to get there and to other locations around the cabin and in Iceland.

We would definitely recommend going here and are already planning on coming back.

Absolutely Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this perfect cottage for a week, 2 adults and 2 children. Every one of us loved it. It is warm and cozy and in a spectacular location. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and so quiet. There's plenty to do in the area - horse riding, Riverjet, Secret Lagoon and plenty more. Geysir is practically next door and there are plenty of walking trails.

The kitchen in well equipped and makes it easy to cook meals. The lounge area is comfortable with plenty of DVDs for evening watching. The hot tub is great too.

Booking was simple as Kristín responds almost immediately to any question with clear and informative answers. If I return to Iceland I'll definitely rent this cottage again.
