A wonderful, well appointed cottage perfectly situated to explore the Golden Circle and beyond.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place to stay and our 6 days of exploring Iceland for the first time were made even more special by having this cottage and it's hot tub to return to every evening! Wonderfully warm courtesy of its underfloor heating, we had everything we needed in this well appointed modern cottage. The views from the living room and huge deck were glorious and we were treated to the amazing spectacle of the Northern Lights right above us on 4 nights out of 6! We felt very lucky to experience such an amazing week in a truly special country. This cottage is ideally placed to explore the Golden Circle and beyond, the 4 hour road trip (each way!) to Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon and diamond beach was a highlight as was watching the Northern Lights from the wonderful hot tub! Memories that will last forever. The town of Selfoss is a 15 minute drive away with a good selection of shops, further adding to the appeal of this location.

Many thanks Thor for sharing your wonderful cottage with us and for your assistance in making our Icelandic 'adventure' a fantastic experience! We hope to return again one day.

A great adventure!!!

  • 5 of 5

This "cabin" in beautiful inside and out! It was full of everything that we could of wanted, and the hot tub was a great bonus. The views in every direction are great and the central location to everything in the Golden Circle was perfect. It was close enough to town but far enough way to escape and have a great view of the northern lights. Thor is great to work with and will give you advice on places to go and things to do. He is very available! Loved this place and loved the adventures and memories we where able to make!!! Thank you Thor

Schönes Haus mit Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem atmosphärischen Haus mit großem Koch.-Wohnbereich und großer Terasse. Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen mit vielen liebevollen Details. Besonders den Gasgrill und den Hot-Pod haben wir gern und viel genutzt. Netter und unkomplizierter Kontakt zum Vermieter. Ruhige Lage. Selfoss mit dem Auto in 10 Min zu erreichen. Definitiv sehr zu empfehlen. Wir erinnern uns gerne an den Aufenthalt.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday here. The cottage was superb and in a fantastic location for exploring southern Iceland.

The owners went out of there way to meet us after 10pm as our flight got in late. The cottage was extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

The living area was surrounded by large windows and gave beautiful views in all directions.The deck also wrapped itself round the whole cottage with several areas to sit/eat.There was a very large hot tub which the whole family enjoyed.

I would strongly recommend this as a place to stay.
