Owners Ian Cross and Josette Bonafino are creative entrepreneurs and adventurers who love to travel and experience amazing locations and cultures. They fell in love with Iceland in the late 90's and fulfilled their dream of owning a cottage back in 2001 when they revisited the Uthlid farm. Ian and Josette have been involved in a number of creative projects in Iceland including the animated movies Anna and The Moods and Legends of Valhalla - Thor.

In 2003 they took a group of young inner city Philadelphians to Iceland to work on a collaborative project with Icelandic teenagers. Based in Philadelphia they own and run a design and technology firm I-SITE, a student travel firm Culture Quest Tours, an arts-based nonprofit The Multicultural Youth eXchange and an entertainment venue, The Trestle Inn.

Ian and Josette, lovers of volcanic destinations, also own a villa on the Caribbean island of Montserrat.

Ian Cross purchased this cottage in 2001

Uthlid is one of the most sought after destinations in South Iceland for renters. Close to Geysir, Gullfoss and many other attractions, the farm has amazing view of the mountain and surrounding countryside and is still close to towns like Selfoss and Laugavatn.

The cottage is a wonderfully private location beautifully nestled in a lava field unlike many other nearby cottages that are in exposed area. The cottage is furnished simply and has a private hot tub and deck area with beautiful views. The cottage is close enough to the farm store but far enough away up the mountain to be quiet especially during the summer months. It sits at the trailhead that access trails across the lava fields to the mountains and Bruaraskord 9km alway with its beautiful waterfall and views out to Langjokull.
