There is nothing that could have made our week's stay any better, it was everything we wanted and more.
We regarded Gestur as a friend as he was so helpful and kind.
The cottage has 360' of magnificent views of the sea and snowy mountains. The coast is absolutely stunning and a photographer's dream, no matter what the weather.
The cottage is beautifully designed and furnished with little luxuries. It was warm, very comfortable and better than the listing. Gestur recommended we stopped to shop at Borganes on the way to the cottage as the area is remote. We were there in February, so there were no organised activities open - but who needs them with the wonderful coastline to explore. We were also treated to 2 nights of the Aurora, seen from the window of the cottage and the back lawn!
A car is an absolute necessity, the roads were good, even in February.
The cottage is very well laid out, the staircase is very steep but there is a stair gate fitted at the top along with a huge television, up to date DVDs, playstation,games, ipad, great selection of toys and mobile phones work too.
They say that the volcano energizes you, well it may be the air quality or the ozone, all we know is we had a relaxing stay which exceeded all our expectations
We would most definitely recommend Iceland, Hellar, Gestur and this cottage
