In 2010 when we bought this beautiful summerhouse. At that time it was fairly new and the interiour almost ready, but outdors remained lots of work to be done. Since then we have invested our time in building a new veranda, installing the hot tub and preparing a good playground. Now when everyting is in pristine condition we want to share this wonderful log cabin with others.

We had a very nice time in the cottage. The surrondings are very quiet, the view of the mountains is beautiful, and we saw a very big northern light the first night. The location is good, not very far from Selfoss where you can find supermarkets and restaurants. We also drove to Jokulsarlon, Vik, the Golden Circle and the Reykjanes peninsula. The cottage itself is convenient with all facilities in the kitchen and bathroom. It is modern, very clean and warm despite the wind outside. The owners are very friendly and ready to help. We would definitely come back and recommend the cottage!
