About Sigurbjörn Björnsson

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.

Amazing cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in this amazing cabin. It was warm and cosy, and very well equipped. We visited the Geysir and Gullfoss on the first day, and then drove down to Vik on the second day and stopped at the other waterfalls on the way. The hot tub was a great place to relax each evening and was nice and hot! The view from the cabin is great and would be a good place to see the northern lights from, although sadly we had cloudy skies each night.

Sigurbjörn was an amazing host, he met us when we arrived and directed us to the cabin. He also pulled us out of a ditch when we got stuck in deep snow! He left a phone for us to reach him on and was always happy to help if we had any questions. I also told Sigurbjörn that I was going to propose to my girlfriend whilst we were there and he went out of his way to get a bottle of champagne for me...she said yes btw! :)

It was a very memorable holiday. We would have loved to stay longer, and would definitely recommend staying in this cabin.

Owner's Response: It was fun to be able to help you bring your girlfriend a surprise, and even better that she said yes (I was now never in doubt). I hope you have had such a memorable time here you want to come back, I recommend a honeymoon in the summer time. If not then a bit later and then the kids with you..

Beautiful, warm log cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time in the cottage. It is much more spacious than it looks. It is very well equipped. We particularly loved the waffle maker! One of the best things about it is the underfloor heating. Even when it was -10 oc outside it was warm and cosy inside. The heating stays on at night too. The hot tub is also fantastic;really warm. The location is excellent. It is half an hour from Geysir and Gulfoss and about an hour and a half from the Blue Lagoon. It is also well placed for visiting the South coast. We went to the black sand beach near Vik and the glacier, which was incredible.The cottage is in a good location to see the Northern Lights as there is very little light pollution nearby. It is very peaceful. The owner is really helpful and met us late at night to make sure that we found the cottage. We would have loved to stay longer!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice words Vivienne. I'm verry glad to hear you have enjoyed your stay in our cottage, and enjoy a hot pot and heat in the house, we are so lucky to be able to heat the house with geothermal energy and is so easy for us to have a hot tub .. I hope that you have to be able to come back later.

Perfect location to see all of the Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this cabin from 24-30 December and had a great time! The cabin is located in a great location to see all the sites along the Golden Circle. The owner was an absolute joy to work with and handled all of our requests and questions without missing a beat! He takes customer service to the next level and makes your comfortable stay priority number 1! The cabin itself is beautiful it has all the amenities one could think of. We were very fortunate to see Northern lights on 3 nights - there is absolutely no light pollution in the area so the viewing is incredible! If I had to sum up our thoughts on the cabin in one phrase it would be 'why stay anywhere else?!?!?' We had an excellent vacation in Iceland and hope to return one day during the summer/early fall - if we do, we will definitely book a return stay at the cabin!

Owner's Response: When my wife and I decided to go to rent our private cottages, we were determined to make it as comfortable as possible, and then we think about both for facilities and services to our guests. We knew we had a beautiful house in a great location. Thus gladdens us much to hear this kind of comment, we see that we are doing something right. We deeply appreciate these beautiful words to us and be always sincerely welcome back at any time you choose.

Cosy and relaxing place in beautfiul Iceland

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, cosy and beautifully furnished cabin. Such a great place to relax, especially after days out exploring the area- the hot tub was also appreciated!! The owner was very helpful, even meeting us at the main road so we wouldn't get lost, after arriving at night. All in all, would definitely recommend coming here and would certainly like to stay again another time.

The Vestman Islands are a true paradise for birdwatchers with the biggest population of puffins in the world as well as being the historic site for the volcanic eruption of 1973 when the eruption stared on the outskirts of the 5000 population town.

The world famous Blue Lagoon is located on Reykjanes peninsula 20 minutes from the international airport and around 85 minutes away for the cabin. The location of the cabin is perfect for day trips to these locations, as well as to Reykjavík, the capital.

The cabin is equipped with a hot tub. The new swimming pool at Borg is extremely good for a country-side pool. It has small hot tubs for children a play area and a swimming area, and geothermal hot water, of course, which is standard for Iceland. It is also only a half an hour drive to Reykjadalur, from the cabin, where there are hot springs and warm rivers, making the place perfect for outdoor bathing.

There's only ten minutes drive to Öndverdanes Golf Club which is open for everybody and a very short distance to the swimming pools in both Hraunborgir and Minniborg, and Minniborg also has horse riding, mini-golf, and a small grocery shop. Kidjaberg Golf Club also has a little restaurant.
