Fantastic cottage for our week in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

Gestur, Steini and Ellen,

Just say a huge "Thank You" to you all.

We have stayed in numerous self catering cottages in Scotland and abroad in Italy over the years and have never been so welcomed on our arrival...Amazing!

We had a fantastic week in your cottage (so homely and warm) which felt like our second home and enjoyed all of our hours in the " hot-pot" and out and about around south western Iceland. What a great island you have.

I'm sure we will return in the camper van, but look to have a few days at your cottage ( by the way the pool at Borg was great, thanks Steini).

Thanks again...see you soon!

Perfect peaeful location for Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is immaculately clean and user-friendly for a family or two couples. Lovely peaceful situation in the heather heath meaning lots of lovely birds frequent the area. And the location is fantastic from which to explore SW Iceland. We loved the hot tub and the views and deck. Highly recommended.

We also hired the 4x4 via Gestur which was excellent value and extremely easy for pick up and drop off. Would definitely do that again.

Peace and Quiet- Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Steini, Ellen and Gestur for the very warm welcome after a long night of traveling. Thanks also for driving us to an adjacent property that our parents rented. It was greatly appreciated! The cottage was conveniently located, well equipped, clean and comfortable. We loved the decks, &were so happy to have use of a laundry room after an especially muddy hike at the Geyser. Thanks also for directing us to the Kronan grocery store in Selfoss, better selection than the Bonus stores. Highly recommend staying here. We didn't want to come home!

Our amazing trip to the land of fire and ice!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of travelling and flight delays we received such a lovely warm welcome from Ellen and Steini, all be it at 2.30am. The lovely cottage was the perfect base for exploring all the sights and so homely to come back to after a day out. The cottage was clean, comfy and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and even got to see the northern lights :) During our stay we saw the Geysirs, went dog sledding, visited the black sand beach, skogafoss and many other waterfalls, the blue lagoon, the nearby geothermal park (bathed in the natural springs there) as well as much more. All amazing.

We rented a car from Gestur, which was ideal, slightly older but cheaper and did the job great. (Sat nav included) Gestur also let us keep the car until our later flight time which meant we could explore the city before flying home :)

A great trip :)

Perfect location for trip to Iceland

  • 5 of 5

The whole process of booking the cottage and communication with Gestur was easy. We even arranged the 4 x 4 vehicle through Gestur which was there upon arrival at the airport. The instructions to the cottage were perfect and we were met by the owners Steini and Ellen who were very friendly and gave us the guided tour of the cottage.

The location of the cottage was perfect - it appeared to be in the middle of know where but was easily accessible to the road leading into Selfoss and to the Golden Circle sites.

The hot tub with the cottage was a wonderful delight to relax in after a day site seeing and we were very fortunate to see the Northern Lights on two nights from the cottage.

We would love to come back in the summer to see Iceland without the snow.

Best place for your stay in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed 5 nights in this absolutly perfect place, and everything we wished for was there. The contact with Gestur before our stay in Iceland went very fast and smooth so everything we needed (great car!) was arranged. Our meeting with the owners of the cottage, Ellen and Steine, was very warm and welcoming and a first glance at the friendliness al Icelandic people seem to have. We did see the Northern Lights from the hottub and watched al the sights in the surrounding area. If you're going to visit Iceland, alone, with your partner or with your children, this is the house that gets a home to stay!

Kindest regards,

Kees and Bregtje,

Only 1 hours drive from the capital Reykjavík and 1,5 hours from the Keflavik International airport.

This is a first time rental of our special Golden Circle cottage. Equipped in total luxury, great kitchen to cook in.

Don´t miss out on the fascinating experience the Golden Circle Cottage gives you. You can drive for few minutes and walk around the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.

You could stop by the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall and visit Þingvellir national park, the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. There the great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates.

GEYSIR:

This world famous spouting hot spring is actually the source for the English word “Geyser”. That alone should tell you how impressive it is considered. However, Geysir is getting a little tired and erupts less frequently these days. No need to worry, though, since Geysirs´ little brother Strokkur spouts every 10 minutes or so shooting up water and steam 25-30 meters high

GULLFOSS (GOLDEN WATERFALL):

Iceland’s most famous waterfall is actually two separate waterfalls. The upper one is a drop of 11 meters and the lower one is 21 meters. Together it makes Europe´s largest waterfall that plunges 32 meters into a steep-sided canyon. The spray creates small rainbows over the gorge on sunny days which makes the scenery even more memorable.

THINGVELLIR - NATIONAL PARK:

Thingvellir national park is a UNESCO World Heritage and is definitely one of the most interesting places in Iceland. Being the original site of the longest-running parliament of the world, a place where one can visualize the North American and European continental shelf plates are being torn apart and the great geological landscape are just some reasons why you should stop by at Thingvellir.

And when you come home in the evening you can relax in the Natural Hot Tub. In winter time you can stay in the NATURAL HOT TUB and enjoy the Northern Lights dancing over our cottage.
