We are very found of our land, in our eyes it is the most beautiful spot in the world. It is sheltered but have great view over a beautiful Icelandic countryside. If we take a walk few hundred meters up on the hill above us we have a panorama view inland and of the two big glaciers in the south; Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull.
Our property is ideally located if you like to explore south east Iceland. West boundaries of Vatnajökull National Park is only 30 km to the north of us and stretches more than 300 km to the east. Bus stops only few hundred meters away every morning, driving the mountain trail to Eldgjá and Landmannalaugar and comes back same evening. All major attractions in the south east are within 1 1/2 hour drive from us.
My husband and I stayed here for three nights and were really sad to leave. Fantastic place to stay in a great location. This is a new property, just built this summer and was perfect for the two of us. It has one bedroom with a queen bed and a loft bed above it so a family of three would be comfortable. The bathroom was small but very usable with good storage. There is a small sitting area and a small kitchen with two burner stove and a refrigerator. We cooked all of our meals and were pleased with the cookware that was available. They even had a coffee machine and coffee. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio each morning and night to look out over the beautiful property. It was very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in three different places while we were on our 12 day trip in Iceland and this was our favorite. Owner was very friendly as well.
Great place. Great owner, and the cabin is beautifull. With any tool that you can imagine for kitchen, bbq, wc, all is clean and perfectly. The location is lovely.
Genial lugar. Genial dueño y la cabaña es preciosa. Con todos los utensilios que imagines tanto para cocina como para la barbacoa o incluso el baño, y todo muy limpio y perfecto. La ubicacion es de encanto.
Absolutely fantastic place for you who like solitude, beautiful nature and multi-hour explorations of the Icelandic paradise on Earth! I and my husband spent an early October week in Giljaland and felt always welcome by "our" small cottage, which has everything you need in order to feel good and warm after many hours in rain and wind. Newly built, clean and comfortable. Wonderful and helpful hosts! Very nice dog! Be aware of the rooster, though ;-)! Can be difficult to find in the dark (we did not have a GPS). Otherwise, highly recommended!
We stayed there for a week and absolutely loved it! The place was not very big, but enough for the two of us. It was clean and everything was nicely arranged and brand new. The owner was also very nice and helpful.
We found it really relaxing that nature was everywhere around. It was the opportunity for us to see northern lights, but also rainbows, waterfalls and the glacier from the very terrace when it was not too cloudy. It was also a good location from which to travel in the south of Iceland, there is a lot to see in the area. Everything was as we hoped for. We definitely recommend!
