I cannot say enough good things about our stay at the cottage and its owner, Hrafn. My wife and I took a week-long trip to Iceland from the US and decided to rent this cottage as our home for the week. For our trip we rented a car and traveled to different points of Iceland each day. This cottage was an ideal location to do so. Our day trips included: 1) the Golden Circle; 2) Reykjavik; 3) Snæfellsnes peninsula; 4) Reykjanes peninsula; and 5) Vik and the Eyjafjallajokull glacier. This cottage is ideally located to travel to any and all of these for a day trip.
As for the cottage itself, it is clean, modern and very comfortable. The modern amenities include everything you need for a very nice, comfortable stay. My wife and I debate whether the best part of the cottage was the hot tub or the memory foam mattresses. I have never slept better in my life than at this cottage thanks to the Tempur-Pedic mattress and that was a very nice surprise. Watching the Northern Nights from the hot tub was also a phenomenal experience.
Hrafn, the owner, was also very helpful, responsive, and could not have been better -- from our very first contact with him in renting the cottage through our arrival home. We also rented a car for the week directly through Hrafn and that made our experience so much easier.
We highly recommend this cottage to anyone. We stayed with a family of five, including a 3-yr old and a 14 yr old. This cottage is suited for a family of any size or ages (my older two kids loved the wifi as it allowed them to text their friends at night without international data charges).
Thank you Hrafn!!!
