Beautiful cottage in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this fabulous home! It was perfect for exploring the Golden Circle areas! We were easily able to visit Geysir, Gulfoss, Pingvellir and Reykjavik on day trips from the house. The hot tub was wonderful and we used it all 4 nights! The home has everything needed for cooking meals and comfortable seating and sleeping. Kristen was extremely responsive to our questions! We loved the home and would definitely return!

Excellent - Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication before and during our stay. Kristin always responded quickly and provided a lot of additional information. She even came by the house and introduced herself, brought fresh baked bread and showed how to work a few items in the house. She is warm and welcoming. And the home is beautiful. Very comfortable, in a beautiful area, well stocked with everything we needed. We had one problem which was resolved by Kristin within an hour. Movies, music and games also available in the home. Have nothing negative to say at all - - HIGHLY RECOMMEND both Kristin and this house.

Great accomodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable 6 nights here in early April. The accommodation is spacious, has great views and is in a great location. You can walk to Geysir in about 10 minutes, and drive to Gulfoss in a similar time. We also had day trips to the national park, and even places like Vik are only 2 hours away by car (with things to stop and look at on the way).

We enjoyed using the hot-tub, especially when watching the northern lights. We used this website http://en.vedur.is/weather/forecasts/aurora/ to keep an eye on the aurora forecast, and it was pretty accurate. On our final night we had a cloudless, moonless night and saw some spectacular aurora activity.

We had a 17 month old baby with us, and the cottage worked well for her. The only thing was stopping her climbing the stairs to the upper bedroom! We took an inflatable bath which fitted nicely in the shower for her. We had a minor issue with the heating when we first arrived, but Kristin sorted it immediately and the cottage was then nice and warm.

Overall, a great stay and I would recommend it.

Lovely property in great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was fantastic in a beautiful setting with everything provided for and ample space. The location was excellent as it was so close to Geysir and Gulfoss falls. We unfortunately had very bad weather so couldn't get out on one of the days but there were plenty of DVDs to entertain us and the cottage was a lovely environment to relax in. I would definitely recommend a 4 wheel drive in winter especially if you are not used to driving in snow(which we weren't ), having said that many people seemed to manage fine without!

We had two lovely meals at the Geysir hotel just up the road which in summer would be a pleasant walk away.

There was a problem with lack of hot water on one day but Kirsten acted quickly to rectify this. Her husband drove all the way from Reykjavik on a Sunday morning to sort it!

All in all an excellent holiday home which we would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for posting this review, I am very glad that you had a nice stay. Winter Iceland has its ups and downs... weather changes rapidly, therefor I always recommend that you hire a 4x4 car in that period of year, its better to be safe than sorry! Welcome back...maybe in the summer perhaps? when the weather is warmer and bright nights! Best regards and all the best, Kristín
