Charming cottage in the countryside
This house is very comfortable and cozy. The bedrooms are small--one with bunk beds and the other two singles pushed together--but fine for my husband and I and our six year old grandson. We slept very well. We loved the views from the big living room windows and the hot tub. The heating worked very well so even though it was quite cold outside, we were warm indoors. Be aware that this house is fairly isolated (some nearby houses but not stores, restaurants, etc.) but that is what we were seeking to improve our chances of seeing the Northern Lights. And we did see them twice. We bought food at a big Bonus supermarket in Reykjavik and ate at the cottage. The house is well equipped for cooking despite the small sizes of the appliances. The owner was very helpful, providing very specific instructions about the house and directions. She has also installed very helpful signs at key turns. The location was great for us because it was an easy drive to both the amazing Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir area.
Thank you very much for your comments! We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed the house so much and were even lucky to see Northern Lights. The house being located in the countryside it´s a perfect location to observe them. Moreover, as you said it´s not far from the Golden Circle to go on day excursion.
Hope to welcome you again some day!
Great place- love the peace and quiet
We had such a wonderful time there. It was my girls favorite place for the whole trip. Great location, there were horses to visit down the street, we played tag in the yard and we had excellent day trips from the cabin. We didn't get the TV to work but that was okay since we were trying to disconnect. Also I don't think the wifi code worked either but we had our own. I love everything about this cabin and the host was really responsive.
All the amenities we needed. Good wifi. Overall very nice experience. Would recommend. Though getting the deposit back takes time.
Stay at Hekla Holiday Home
Our stay at the Hekla Holiday Home was great! It's very much off the beaten path and it's nice to have a very quiet place. We were able to see the Northern Lights both nights of our stay, which was an unexpected surprise. The hot tub is great even on a cold day and the cabin itself is cozy. We had a little trouble with the front door (our own fault!) and Carolin was helpful in getting it sorted out.
Beautiful area very close to the famous "Golden circle". "Geysir" is only 35 minutes by car from the house.
The main road (N32) is going to Landmannalaugar, one of the best places in the world for hiking and is 1,5 hour by car.
Great location for hunting northern lights during winter time.
Hot tub in a peaceful and unique environment (only working during summer months!)
