Overview

South Iceland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms + sleeping loft, sleeps 5-8

The cottage has a ground floor of 84m² with an extra 22 m² sleeping loft. Downstairs are 2 bedrooms – one double room and one single room with a bed + bunk suitable for a child. Upstairs in the sleeping loft there are two beds, with the possibility of extra mattress sleeping space.

There is a fully-equipped kitchen with a fridge/freezer, microwave, oven/stove, with a dining area next to the kitchen seating up to 6. There is also a dining table (which seats up to 10) in the glass-panelled lounge, and a comfortable sofa area for relaxing, watching a movie, or listening to music etc. on the cottage’s TV, DVD and CD player. The bathroom consists of a toilet, washbasin and shower – Note: the shower has a sufficient supply of hot water, but not exhaustible! There is also a storage room with a washing machine.

Beautiful views of the Westman Islands from the lounge; on a winter’s night you can look out into the stars + there is even the possibility of some Northern lights (not guaranteed!)

A bit more information!:

The cottage is set in half a hectare of land, approx. 1 km along Road Number 250 (Dímonavegur) after turning off the main Ringroad Number 1, about 120km from Reykjavík. It is advised to bring your car onto the property, locking the gate behind you, to prevent the local horses from taking too keen an interest in it!

Ideal cottage for those who would like to get away from it all - and yet the property is not far from many local attractions and landmarks! Suitable also for those who would like to use the cottage as a base - e.g. mountain climbers, cyclists, fishermen.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was so fantastic to live in your beautiful and quiet cottage with view to Eyafjallajökull. We have had 3 wonderful days there and made trips to:

- Geysir, Strokkur, Gullfoss, Langjökull

- to Hekla, Landmannalaugar, Kirkjufell, Eldgja

- Kap Dyrhòlaey, warm pool in the mountains near Seljavellalaug

Thanks for all!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a week as a family and the children loved the place: great garden and ponies, lovely big sun lounge and a fun place to sleep. There was even some toys - rediscovering the delights Lego.

The kitchen area is quite small but well equipped, as is the bathroom, and the beds are comfortable. There's plenty of furniture for outdoors, though it was a bit cold in the evenings for us to make use of this. There's even a washing machine.

We toured the south coast and travelled up to Gulfoss, all within about an hours drive. And there are the Westman Islands on the doorstep.

We'd thoroughly recommend it.

Peaceful secluded cottage

  • 4 of 5
This cottage provided a warm comfortable stay for our last few days in Iceland.
We enjoyed the peacefulness of the location. The garden is a haven for wildlife. We saw an owl, and a pair of ptarmigon as well as other bird species.
The cottage is in good position near Vik and its beaches. Near to the ferry for the Westman Islands.
Booking the cottage was easy with prompt response from the owner. The property was easy to find.
Overall the property was very clean, providing the facilities for a relaxing stay.

This Cottage Deserves 10 stars!

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage is just perfect! It is even nicer than you can tell from the photos. It is roomy and light and airy. The kitchen is extremely well out-fitted. We had everything we could possibly need for fixing yummy meals there. The glass sun-room is a wonderful place to sit and relax at the end of the day's activities! We saw beautiful Icelandic horses right outside the yard. The cottage is very conveniently located for touring most of the sights in Southern Iceland. It is an excellent value!!!

Lovely peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was exactly as described in terms of location, layout and facilities, it was also very clean and well-maintained. The handover of the keys and directions to the cottage went very smoothly.

The cottage is in a fantastic location - exactly as described, peaceful and secluded, with excellent views to the mountains and over to the Westmann Islands. We had a brilliant stay in the cottage, visiting the Blue Lagoon, Geysir, Gulfoss, Westman Islands, Skaftafell, other local waterfalls and sights. The walks and views in the area are excellent. At the end of every day it was a pleasure to return to the cottage and relax. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to others.

perfect place near skogarfoss and selandjafoss

  • 5 of 5
We had a marvelous stay at this cottage which is very nicely decorated with a remote nordic cabin style. It has a wonderful dining room with great sun exposure. Kids will like the loft for sleeping. We would stay here again without a doubt. After driving and hiking around southern iceland, I cannot think of a nicer place of which to return and drink tea/read a book.
