Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Owners

We had a lovely stay in your property and look forward to returning back in the future. Thank you for the welcome basket you gave us but unfortunately we could not eat any of the products due to dietary requirements. We had some extra food left which we have left in the fridge.



Best regards

Beautiful property A+

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of Icelandic decent that came to Iceland for a family reunion and we stayed here for 4 days out of our 2 week in Iceland. We were very happy with the location, the view, the condition of the property and the fact that it was very well equipped. I brought my mother and 3 young adult kids and we were all comfortable. My mother is already talking about wanting to rent it again next summer with my dad..and she is very picky :) Takk fyrir!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. It really felt like a home from home. Very clean and well presented. We ate in mostly and it had everything we needed for cooking meals. There is a hairdryer for those who may need one. Comfy beds, lovely powerful shower, washing machine was also handy. Beautiful views to get up to and also look at from the hot tub which was a highlight after a long day hiking. Iceland is just beautiful and this place is well situated to visit West and South as well as the nearby Golden Circle. Couldn't have asked for better. Both owner and David were welcoming and great at communicating too. Thank you so much! We hope one day to return.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it looked modern and cared for. Turns out it is the family somerhouse so they look after it well. It is off the main road by about 5 miles and very peaceful. We really enjoyed our time here and would stay here again if we return to Iceland as it is positioned very well for day trips to the various tourist attractions. Hot tub Is good for relaxing and keeps the kids quiet.

Our only comments to the owner would be having instructions on how to turn down the under floor heating as we, as a family, do not enjoy living in 20 odd degree heat consistently and would probably turned it off majority of the time if we had a choice. The other thing would be the ability to turn off the outside lights that seemed to be on light sensors as when trying to take pictures of the northern lights and Milky Way/stars it did have a detrimental effect on my long exposure shots. I could of removed the bulbs but didn't really want to start messing with stuff like that especially in the dark.

Summary would be anyone looking for a well maintained property that is private and peaceful this is the one.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for 10 days in March 2017.

The location was perfect, about 15 minutes from the town of Selfoss and quick driving access to all the Golden Circle attractions. It was isolated just enough to make it a quiet location with nice views of a river and mountain.

We were able to see the northern lights during a few nights of our stay.

The cottage itself has everything you need and the hottub was great!

I would definitely recommend this cottage!
