This is an extremely comfortable cottage, well laid out with a magnificent living area that looks over the surrounding countryside, and a kitchen with everything we needed for cooking each night. There were 4 of us - 2 parents and 2 strapping sons and we had plenty of space - the cottage can easily fit many more. The views across the to the mountains and volcanos are stunning and the air is incredibly clean. Coming back to a soak in the geothermal hot tub each night, looking at the views and listening to the birds sing was nothing short of idyllic. And living in a cottage that is geothermically heated was a wonderful experience! Oddny was very helpful before and during our stay, and both she and her parents were welcoming and made everything very straightforward and easy. A very big thank you to them!
The cottage is excellently placed for visiting Geysir (where they make the best mochas and caffe lattes ever in the cafe), Gulfoss and Thingvellir; and we never tired of driving to Reykjavik via Thingvellir, as the scenery was so beautiful. One day we drove to Vik (2 hours away) and walked on the black beaches, then saw another stunning waterfall and walked on a glacier ( both on the way there) - a great day. We would strongly recommend Elding Whale tours - we saw lots of dolphins and fin whales, they are the most whale friendly of the tours and they give free sea sickness pills that actually work! (Go 45 mins early) We also went on a wonderful horse ride with Sydra Langholt Guest House near Fludir, which we all agreed was the best ride we had ever been on.
In short, we loved Iceland and hope to come back soon and we couldn't have wished for a better cottage to stay in and would warmly recommend it. I wish I was still there :-)
