Private Paradise In Iceland

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a most wonderful 5 day holiday staying at the “Paradise Cottage” in Iceland. We are Air BnB and HomeAway regulars and therefor have a great deal of experience staying with variety of hosts. Gestur was one of the best. Communicating with him via email or text was always easy. He was courteous and responsive to all my questions. We also rented a car form him and when I had concerns regarding payment, insurance etc, he made the effort to alleviate my anxiety. We even had a flat tire on the last day of our holiday and he replaced the car with another! All went well.

Regarding the cottage, the description is accurate in all respects. The only thing to remember is that the shower is outside the cottage near the hot tub. It has ample hot water and easy to get to. Rest assured you will have a private and quiet retreat. If you prefer not being in the city but close enough to drive to Reykjavik ( 15 minutes), I would not hesitate to rent from Gestur.

It doesn't get better

  • 5 of 5

If I could buy this place, I would do so today. Been there now twice, once in the summer and once in the winter and we loved it both times. The view, the peace, the kitchen, the wood burner and certainly the outdoor hot tub overlooking no-man's land. Simply fabulous. Will be back. Definitely. Tobi, Britannia House, Lymington, UK

Perfect Honeymoon/Escape

  • 5 of 5

Fabulously isolated location perfect for a quiet escape, yet still close enough to the capital city for access to excursions, shopping and site seeing. Simply the best location for that retreat from the modern world, didn't want to leave and can't wait to return.

Stayed for 4 nights, in early November, great time, fabulous facilities and owner couldn't do enough to help us during our stay. Great base to explore the island or just get away from it all, which is what we did and had an excellent stay.

Cute, compact and quirky

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous week at Paradise Cottage. Located in beautiful countryside, with gorgeous views and yet only 15 minutes drive from central Reykjavik, it was perfect for our needs. We loved the hot tub, the quirky outside shower and the large garden for the children to play in. The house was lovely and cosy with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We hired the car which was available with the cottage and found it perfect for all that the roads and weather could throw at us, which was quite a lot! Be prepared for the weather to change quickly and for roads to be closed - we were nearly stranded twice! All in all, loved the house and Iceland, and would love to go back.
