About Helga Marin
I am an inspirational speaker, life coach, health and wellness coach and a teacher and my purpose in life is to inspire people to unleash their full potential and become the best versions of themselves. I inherited the cottage along with the property it was built on 4 years ago and I have been renting it out ever since. My goal is to provide my guests with an authentic Icelandic experience and I do my best to meet all their requirements. I have met people from all over the world which has been wonderful. I even married my first guest who stayed at my house summer 2015.
Why Helga Marin chose Hveragerði
The main house on the property was built by my grandmother who was also the first woman to drive a car and a motorcycle in Iceland. She was a remarkable woman who faught for women's rights and was driven to help people whenever she could. She was a midwife and the head of the midwife association in Reykjavik. She originally built the main house for the midwifes but later the house became a summerhouse for the family. After her passing, my mother inherited the main house and she and my father built the cottage in the garden. It was originally built for guests that came to visit the family during holidays.
What makes this House unique
The cottage is cozy and spacious and is equipped with everything one needs for a comfortable stay. It is very peaceful and quiet here which my guests greatly appreciate. Hveragerdi is a beautiful small town and you are surrounded by beautiful nature. There are many hiking and walking trails that those who are interested can enjoy. We also have an amazing swimming pool and one of the best natural hot spring in Iceland you can enjoy swimming in all year around. Our goal is to meet our guests requirements so that they can have a wonderful stay.

Warm and cozy cottage
We picked this town as a stopover between the Golden Circle and the Ring Road and this cottage was quiet and comfortable and perfectly sized for a family of four for that purpose, with the added bonus of relatively dark bedrooms in the midnight sun. As others have mentioned it was an easy walk to a great pizza/brewery place in town for dinner. The only tiny disappointment is that other reviewers all mentioned a fresh baked loaf of bread being provided for breakfast. While that’s not officially in the property listing, there was a sign in the cottage inviting us to enjoy it so I guess it was supposed to be there... just a small thing, but maybe if you’re staying here just don’t plan for that to be your breakfast!
Great stay in the Golden Circle
Cute cabin and walking distance to restaurants and shops.

Great Cottage in the middle of hot springs central!
Cottage was great! Close to hiking trails and hot springs feed creek. Helga was very responsive and all went well.
A lovely spacious property.
This was a lovely property with easy access to the Golden Circle and the South Coast. Very good communication with management. They had a small hot loaf of bread in the apartment upon check in. It was just my son and I but was large enough for a small group. It lived up to the photos posted.
Thank you very much for your stay and your kind review. I appreciate it greatly, thank you
