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.

Lovely House in the Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Everything was as described here and everything was clean and organised. The house is well equipped - you won't miss anything. We enjoyed the privacy because you don't have direct neighbours. We also enjoyed the Hot Pot und the veranda (you can watch a lot of birds and enjoy the nature you are surrounded by).

The contact with the owner was uncomplicated und nice. No problems!

The location is great because you can reach a lot of famous spots in Iceland (Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Kerid, Geyirs etc...).

We recommend this cottage - thanks to the owner, it was a great stay!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

If you plan to visit this part of Iceland, we will highly recommend this beautiful cottage. We stayed here for one week and we were really satisfied! The location was just perfect: a quiet area with nice view and close to all the famous attractions and places we wanted to see in Iceland.

Inside the cottage is cozy, tidy, very clean and well equipped (even toiletpapers, detergents and a prefilled coffee machine!). On the large terrace the hot-tub with the fresh water was lovely.

The owners are very kind and serviceminded. You can trust them and they will do all the best for you!
