Iceland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cozy Log Cabin, Sleeps 6, 2 Bedrooms And A Loft. Lots Of Attractions Nearby

The cottage Kristinarkot is a new house on HomeAway since 2012, It is in the peaceful valley Helludalur, There have been fantastic reviews from previous guests in these cottages, that are in the valley. Now we are able to add this cottage - Kristinarkot, in this popular location and will do our best to make your stay enjoyable, it is 100m2, where easily can stay up to 6 persons. The place Geysir is a 1 hour drive away from the city Reykjavik, in the south-west. You are staying in the highlights of Iceland. This is the perfect place to stay in the midst of greatest natural attraction of Iceland, in the Golden Circle. You have the famous Geysir in 15 min walking distance and Gullfoss is also close by, as for Thingvellir National park. Geysir is the ideal destination for today's tourist. You enjoy the nature, and are very close to many activities nearby the cottage. The volcano Eyjafjallajökull and glacier Langjökull are just few of many attractions in driving direction. We do have a hot tub, please contact Kristin and ask about it. (please be aware that there can come days when its too cold for using the hot tub in winter months) Guests renew their relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in warm geothermal water. In Desember 2013 it has been installed extra heating, so the cottage is very warm. Enjoy to enjoy the 24 hours of daylight in the summertime and the stars and Northern lights in the wintertime. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Perfect cottage in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this cottage. It was perfect! Spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable and we slept like logs. Our 3 children loved the hot tub, and we witnessed the northern lights on four separate nights, amazing. Kristin was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to everyone we know. Book now you won't be disappointed!!

Warm cosy cottage, beautiful location...walking distance to Geysirs.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious, warm and cosy. We enjoyed the hot tub (in February!) and had a spectacular view of the Northern Lights from the deck. The cottage is in a stunning location, within walking distance to the Geysirs and a short drive to Gullfoss waterfall. Kristin, the owner, could not have been more helpful, promptly answering queries both before and during our stay. Would recommend this cottage for a relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for us , it was clean , spacious, warm and cosy . The area was quiet which was exactly what we wanted . the location was ideal ,with Geysir within walking distance and other sights close by . I loved the secret lagoon, bathing in the natural geothermal waters which is a short drive away . We also enjoyed the hot tub . Kristín was really nice and gave us some good tips about where to visit and eat out

Great location and comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed Iceland. The house was very clean and has everything you need to cook some basic meals. Make sure you plan ahead while in the grocery store because stores are not close to the house. The hot tub was just as advertised and we loved it. My boys would put in a movie from the collection while they waited for the hot tub to fill. The location is great too. You can visit the Geysir and climb a hill and overlook this house. Snowmobiling with Mountaineers of Iceland on the glacier was just up the street and was a blast. We drove to the ice lagoon and although it is a long drive, the scenery made it all worth it.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The location is great and easy to find. We were able to see so many beautiful places in Iceland using this cottage as our home base. The geysir area is literally right down the road. Gullfoss is only a short drive away. We even made the drive to Glacier Lagoon. After the long drive, it was nice to come back to a relaxing cottage. I would highly recommend booking this property.

Only the local Icelandic TV station, An extra heating system, added to the geothermal heat in the radiators. a new system was installed in December 2014, it works fantastic and therefor the cottage is very nice and warm in the coldest periods of year.
