Awesome holiday location

  • 5 of 5
Lovely location which is very peaceful but still only a short drive to Reykjavik. Scenery from the house was amazing and we loved our trip.
The hot tub really made it special as we were out in it almost every night looking for the northern lights (unfortunately did not see them though). Was great to be in 41 degree water whilst its snowing and -6.
Outside shower was interesting. Really got the circulation going and was fun :)

We rented the Suzuki from Gestur for the 6 days which is a must. The 2km track leading to the house gets very icy in the winter and even with spiked tyres, driving slowly and in low range it still slips, so I could not imagine getting there with a bog standard road car.
4x4 was also useful getting to Pingvallir and Geysir as roads were also very slippy on the way.
Useful tip if you do hire the car from Gestur. On the Sat Nav go to Favourites and select House as this takes you straight there (we struggled to find location when trying to type in post code).

Also another tip regarding the fire. We just assumed that we used logs and kindle that was around at first but then found out that its best to go to local garage and grab logs wrapped in wax paper.

Whilst on the subject of tips here are some more:
- There is a hair dryer at the house so you don't need to bring one.
- Don't be tempted to pay extra at the Blue Lagoon for robe, towel and free drink (despite me saying this to my girlfriend). Its really not worth the extra money in my opinion as you are mainly in the water and could buy an extra 10 drinks despite the high prices.
- My girlfriend also recommends conditioner on your hair when going in the Lagoon. She didn't and says her hair feels like straw now.

The house was really nice and we would definitely come back again as there is so much more we would like to see.

Thanks to Gestur who was excellent with regards to communication and everything went very well with getting the car and getting into the house due to the clear instructions.

So overall a very special holiday made amazing by the excellent house and location of the house.

Thanks again Gestur.

Would rate it 6 stars if I could DREAM COME TRUE!

  • 5 of 5
SO many good points to note....

- Absolutely STUNNING location
- Easy access to Reykjavik and all sights/attractions
- 7 mins to 24 hr shop/ petrol/ fastfood
- Very comfortable beds
- Amazing large hot tub
- Easy payment and good communication with owner
- Warm, homely feel with cosy with log fire and leather sofas
- Big TV which we played movies from the laptop on (via HDMI)
- Loud and good quality sound system
- No neighbours to disturb or be disturbed by
- Free wi-fi works great

Before you book you should know:

- You will need a 4x4 to access it, our Jeep almost couldn't make it in the snow and ice even with spikey tires, all I can say is buy extra insurace for your Jeep!
- Shower is outside but we like that :)
- Stereo is radio and CD only but tune into 91.9FM and you won't need an iPod to have a party (Flashback FM with 90's Hip/Hop, Dance, Classics all day and night!)

Honestly, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Iceland, thanks Gestur and wife for letting us stay in your beautiful holiday home, would come back in a heartbeat :)

P.S. Northern lights we're insane!!! :D

New Years In Iceland

  • 5 of 5
WE can't say enough about our recent trip, we just got back last night and would suggest anyone that has considered a trip to Iceland to do it! The cottage was perfect for the 2 of us, it would have been a squeeze if there was more, simply because there is no room to put your suitcase! The outdoor shower was not a problem, even in winter, the trick is to jump in the hotub after! We arranged a car hire with Gestur, which was perfect as it was left at the airport for us. The GPS was a god send!. We ventured to Geysir and Gulfoss ( a must for the Lamb stew!) partied with the locals on new years eve and experienced the best firework display in our lives! Ventured to the blue lagoon new years day. (would suggest the basic package only as it was special enough just being there!) in the town near to the Blue Lagoon ( Grindavik) is a wonderful retaurant called the Salthusid that is worth a visit and much cheaper thean the Blue Lagoon restaurant.
We were lucky to see the northern lights on New years day to welcome the new year in, clear view from the cottage, just wish we had found the binoculars before rather than after! but I managed to get some great pictures. All in all, one of our best trips ever, we look forward to returning!. Thanks Gestur!

Can't wait to go back :)

I cannot recommend a holiday to Iceland enough, and in particular a stay in Paradise Cottage is a must!! The cottage has absolutely stunning views, is so peaceful, relaxing, cosy, very comfortable beds, log fire, hot tub, wifi… everything you need for a lovely stay in Iceland. Hot tub was just perfect! I should also comment on the outdoor shower (as everyone else has!), and would say it wasn’t even an issue even though at home it would sound a bit odd but in the peace and tranquillity of Paradise Cottage it seems natural and is a great way to start the day :) If you go in the Spring/ Summer keep an eye out for the resident Maríuerla (Wagtail), so cute. Gestur was very helpful to us and changed over the gas canister that had run out within a couple of hours of us contacting him whilst we were at the Blue Lagoon, so it didn’t cause any disruption to our holiday. One other thing to mention is that the smoke alarm is very sensitive and will also activate the house alarm, would advise to have both windows open when cooking and if the alarm does go off I would contact Gestur or Arnar once you have reset it to make sure a quick phone call to Securitas is made… or you will receive a visit from Securitas (Securitas are very friendly, but it will just save them having to come out for a non emergency).

Iceland itself is truly amazing - hire a car and explore… in particular Jökulsárlón (glacial lagoon) will take your breath away and make sure you stop off at Seljalandfoss and Skogafoss on the way. Blue Lagoon, a typical tourist attraction, but just incredible (take your own towel and flip flops to save money) and also the many local heated outdoor pools are fab to visit as you explore the country… with hot tubs, steam rooms, big slides and all very clean and cheap at about 550 kr per adult, we particularly enjoyed the swimming pool in Borganes as it was very quiet and set in a good location with views of the mountains.

I could go on and on about Iceland and Paradise Cottage and how amazing it is, really did not want to come home.

Thank you very much to Gestur for the rental of your lovely home for a week :)

What's not to love?

What's not to love?

We feel that that we are now members of an exclusive group of people that have chosen Paradise Cottage for their ‘getaway’ to Iceland and duly fallen in love with the place. We arrived from England stressed and worn out and left invigorated and relaxed. As per all the other reviews Gestur stayed in touch with us before and during our trip and answered all our questions. He even had to rescue us on our journey from the airport to the accommodation! Note to others: … do not leave car lights on while you are in the supermarket! The cottage itself, blends beautifully into the landscape and has something to offer every season that Iceland has to offer (in a day!) from the log burner, the picture window, the FANTASTIC hot tub, the cozy bedrooms, the view, the garden, the location … the list goes on. A week was not enough. We would have no hesitation booking with Gestur again, visiting Iceland all over again and staying in this cottage. In short, we would change nothing other than we would have loved to stay longer and hope to return one day. We have beautiful memories to treasure a lifetime.

Total relaxation :-)

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place. Hard to imagine you are only a 10 minute drive from Reykjavik when you are sat relaxing in the hot tub or living room with such fantastic views.....you cannot help but feel relaxed.
We stayed for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed for longer as there are so many amazing things to do/see in the area. We hired Gestur's car which was brilliant and made things so much easier being able to pick it up/drop off at the airport and do things at our own pace away from the coach groups. Driving in Iceland is very easy provided you stick to the main tarmac roads.
As for the cottage, it was just what we needed...it was great to come back each night and relax in the hot tub and we made use of it morning and night. Don't let the outdoor shower put you off .... for someone who doesn't like the cold, I actually quite enjoyed showering outside and the water is very warm. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and we ate at the cottage most times - Food at the bonus/netto supermarkets were reasonably priced, provided you looked carefully at the different choices. If you want beer, you need to go to a local off-licence as the supermarkets don't stock it, however it is easier to buy things in duty-free to take with you.
The bedrooms are small but the bed was VERY comfortable and for once we managed to sleep well whilst away.....probably also helped by the fact that there is very little noise around. The Wifi is OK, but only really suitable for checking emails and it took us a while to realise that the switch for the Wifi/Tv etc is one of the "light" switches just as you go into the living room.
Gestur was very helpful in the run up to our visit, answering countless emails with queries and it was a pleasure to meet him whilst we were there.
All in all it was an amazing break away - this time is was a romantic trip, but we enjoyed it so much that we would love to go back with our children as they too would love it and we would definitely stay in the cottage again.
If you are looking for peace, relaxation and some amazing views, look no further!
Thank you very much Gestur for letting us stay in your lovely cottage - hopefully we will be back.
Helen
