We stayed at this property in a snowy February. When we arrived from the UK an picked up our hire car - the owner, Sandra met up with us. It was late and the road to the cabin had been closed due to bad weather. Sandra was brilliant and booked us into a nearby hotel for the night and supplied us with takeaway!
The next morning we drove to the cabin which sits on the end of a private road overlooking a fabulous view. The cabin itself is quite large especially with just the two of us.
We are usually hotel travellers, so not used to this kind of rental. Is this comparable to a hotel? Well, no not at all. The drawers have 'stuff' in, there are child's toys around, food in the cupboards and DVDs ready for a rainy day. It is a lived in family home, which can only enhance an experience of being in Iceland.
The property is located literally just off the Golden Circle so Þingvellir is just down the road, and the likes of Geysir and Gullfoss are within easy reach. If you fancy another day trip in the car you can go down the south coast past Vik and up to Jökulsárlón and see the glacier ice washed up on the beach.
I would defiantly recommend staying here. We hope to again soon! Sandra was amazingly helpful and gave us very useful advice on things to do.
She can't make the Aurora happen for you though, but fortunately we were treated to that as well one night - right over the cabin.
