And when you come home in the evening you can relax in the Natural Hot Tub. In winter time you can stay in the Hut Tub and enjoy the Northern Lights dancing our cottage.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE ON A QUIET SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in this lovely, warm and comfortable cottage. Everything you need is there, a real home from home.
We had a very warm welcome from Ellen and Steini. It was so nice meeting this very friendly couple. The hot tub is the (Icelandic) icing on the cake. So relaxing, a welfare for the body and especially for the muscles. We already miss it.
The location is perfect for visiting the Golden Circle, walking in the geothermal mountains of Hveragerdi, Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon and partly the south of Iceland. The peninsula of
Reykjanes is worth a visit. After bathing in the wonderful Blue Lagoon we drove to Grindavik, then along the south coast to
Krysuvik with the hot springs and crossed through the geothermal area to the north and went to Reykjavik for a visit.
Do not forget to go to the Kerio vulcano lake. It is beautiful and so nearby.
Thank you Gestur for answering all our questions. Also for the rent of the car. Everything was arranged perfectly.
Ellen and Steini thanks again for letting us rent your cottage and thank you for the tulips in front of the house!
We will certainly recommend this cottage.
All the best from Holland.

FABULOUS COTTAGE AND THE WARMEST OF WELCOMES!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage really was the perfect spot for us for a few days of exploring and enjoying the delights of Iceland. Booking and paying for the cottage was really straightforward via clear and friendly emails and our welcome on arrival at the cottage after a difficult journey was full of warmth and kindness (and even Easter eggs!) The cottage was really clean, immaculately kept, well-equipped and homely with light and space in the living area but cosy bedrooms too - perfect size for a family with 2 children. We spent half our time visiting the Golden Circle highlights (favourites included the spectacular Gulfoss, walking behind Seljalandsfoss, building snowmen next to Strokkur to see how fast they'd melt) and the other half in the hot tub. We also immersed ourselves in the Icelandic culture of hanging about in the public thermal hot tubs and swimming pools scattered all over the area. The sight of the kids laughing and shooting down the outdoor slide water slide at Borg local pool (5 mins away - clean, cheap, warm and fun) in a heavy snowstorm will remain with us as a true Icelandic magic memory!

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage for a week over Valentine's Day and couldn't have been more impressed. The property is spotlessly clean and very well equipped, unlike other cottages we've stayed in it is not a case of "just enough", ie accommodation for 4 will have 4 knives, 4 forks etc but Elen and Steini have equipped the cottage with everything you could need and more. We received a very warm welcome despite being late in arriving and nothing was too much trouble. Gestur was extremely helpful with everything and the car he provided was perfect. We had a small issue with the brakes but when reported to Gestur he had it replaced the same day - great service. The location is perfect and very close to the main sites of the Golden Circle, but be aware the floating icebergs and glaciers are a whole day out so don't expect them to be close if you wish to visit them. Bed is extremely comfortable and cottage is cozy and warm at all times. The hot tub is brilliant for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. Selfoss is about 20 mins drive and has supermarkets and petrol stations, one of which is open 24 hours and sells essentials such as bread and milk (don't do what we did and buy yoghurt - ask someone to translate the labels :-)) There is also a Dominos and KFC in Selfoss if you can't be bothered cooking! We would highly recommend this cottage but be aware it is quite isolated and in bad weather could be difficult to access if you aren't confident driving in ice and snow. Main roads were clear while we were there but some of the minor roads were treacherous and a 4x4 is essential - but you don't need the to pay the extortionate rates for a brand new Land Rover - Gestur's older but reliable small jeeps are ideal. Will definitely return to the cottage if we visit Iceland again.

INCREDIBLE COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful cottage. It is in a beautiful setting and ideal location for exploring the golden circle and the south of Iceland. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and Steini and Ellen gave a very warm welcome to us and were very helpful. The cottage was warm and cosy and the hot tub was great after a day of exploring. We would highly recommend this fantastic place and looking forward to returning soon!

LOVELY COTTAGE. MUCH SMARTER THAN THE PHOTOS.

  • 5 of 5
Central location for many tourist sites in south Iceland. Very cosy and clean. Friendly and thoughtful owners. Good to see a bit of Icelandic life by staying in a 'summerhouse'

Would recommend to others.

Managed to visit the Westman Islands and Skogarfoss easily in a day. Swimming pool in Borg was good for the children.

This is a first time rental of our special Golden Circle cottage. Equipped in total luxury, great kitchen to cook in.

Don´t miss out on the fascinating experience the Golden Circle Cottage gives you. You can drive for few minutes and walk around the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.

You could stop by the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall and visit Þingvellir national park, the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. There the great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates.

GEYSIR:

This world famous spouting hot spring is actually the source for the English word “Geyser”. That alone should tell you how impressive it is considered. However, Geysir is getting a little tired and erupts less frequently these days. No need to worry, though, since Geysirs´ little brother Strokkur spouts every 10 minutes or so shooting up water and steam 25-30 meters high

GULLFOSS (GOLDEN WATERFALL):

Iceland’s most famous waterfall is actually two separate waterfalls. The upper one is a drop of 11 meters and the lower one is 21 meters. Together it makes Europe´s largest waterfall that plunges 32 meters into a steep-sided canyon. The spray creates small rainbows over the gorge on sunny days which makes the scenery even more memorable.

THINGVELLIR - NATIONAL PARK:

Thingvellir national park is a UNESCO World Heritage and is definitely one of the most interesting places in Iceland. Being the original site of the longest-running parliament of the world, a place where one can visualize the North American and European continental shelf plates are being torn apart and the great geological landscape are just some reasons why you should stop by at Thingvellir.

And when you come home in the evening you can relax in the Natural Hot Tub. In winter time you can stay in the NATURAL HOT TUB and enjoy the Northern Lights dancing over our cottage.
