It is in a beautiful spot and very well situated cottage with graet view, located near many interesting sites for example mount Hekla, Eyjafjallajökull which you can see out of the window in the house. Vatnajökull glacier, Þórsmörk, Gullfoss, Geysir and Vestman Island.

• An 18 hole golf course is just 5 minutes drive away.

• Many fishing rivers are nearby.

• The cottage and the surrounding area is very family friendly.

• The cottage is approx. one hours drive from Reykjavik.

The cottage is ideal for both summer and winter vacation. Summer time for 24 hour daylight and winter time for Northern Lights.

The atmosphere is very peaceful and you are in touch with nature and the surrounding landscape. From the living room you can see Mount Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull.

It is very relaxing to come our house after a long strong day and and relax go in to the hot tub and in the winter time if you are lucky you can see the Northern Lights dancing over the house and in the summer enjoy the brightness and nature.

In the winter it is nothing that beats lying in the hot tub watching the stars and if you are lucky you can see the Northern Lights.

Amazing views, wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a large group of extended family and kids and we loved the house. Convenient to lots of sights in south Iceland but also comfortable enough to take the day off and relax in. Laundry was a huge plus as was the incredibly well stocked kitchen. The view from the deck was outstanding. The grocery store in Hella was easy to get to and had most everything you could need.

Stunning cottage, stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from what was a truly memorable holiday in Iceland at the cottage in Hróarslækur. Our days were pretty action-packed, so it was an absolute pleasure to come back to such a comfortable, well-appointed, spacious cottage in the evenings and unwind.

The cottage facilities were excellent: the kitchen had all we wanted in terms of cooking utensils and cooker; the bathrooms were clean and tidy; the living areas accommodated us all (12 people) easily... and the hot-tub was the icing on the cake!! Being able to sit outside and watch the stars (and Aurora Borealis!!) on an evening in all kinds of weather was certainly a highlight.

The cottage was really well-located for many of the sites we wished to visit. The longest drive we undertook was to the Skaftafellsjökull glacier/Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in the east and Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west - both of which were about 3.5hour drives. The Skogafoss and Gulfoss waterfalls, Vik black beaches, Thingvellir, Geysir, DC3 crash-site, etc, were all within an hour or so's drive.

Lastly, Soffia the cottage owner was excellent on communication and very friendly and helpful. Although she was away when we arrived, the directions and key pickup were organised perfectly and we didn't encounter any issues!

I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. Iceland itself is an incredible, inspirational place, but the cottage really made our trip come together.

Owner's Response: Dear Patrick, Thank you for your kind comment on the house and the nice comment about me. It is great to hear that you saw the Northern Lights while relaxing in the hot tub. As I can see you and your companions had a good time in Iceland and think that is wonderful. Many many thanks, Soffía

Beautiful location, excellent comunication

  • 5 of 5

We had nine people staying at the house for four nights. There was plenty of room for everyone. Soffia went out of her way to help us and answered all questions promptly and thoroughly. We were able to drive to many spots from this location and when we were tired found the house very comfortable for resting. The kids loved watching the animals through the telescope and even up close at times. The hot tub was ready when we arrived. Linens were comfortable and having laundry access was a real help so that we didn't need to pack as much. Be aware that there is no dryer but the clothes dried on the provided drying rack quickly.

Terrific Golden Circle home base for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first time in Iceland, and Soffia's place was perfect - even a bit large for our party of 6. Our host was very responsive even emailing back and forth with us during our stay which we were quite appreciative of. The house is in a perfect location close to Hella and within easy day trips of most attractions throughout the Golden Circle. The house itself is on a very secluded road, very private, with horses and sheep coming round the house regularly, which was quite exciting for us! On clear days we had fantastic views of Mt. Hekla. I'd highly recommend this place for any larger group looking for a perfect home base from which to explore!

An Excellent House for Exploring South Iceland

  • 5 of 5

This property was excellent in just about every way. The house was well set up for our group's needs (we had 8 people in total). There is one long hallway containing all of the bedrooms and a bathroom. This hallway opens up to a large sitting area with a kitchen, another bathroom, a utility room, and then a wrap around deck. The common areas are very inviting and have tons of natural light. The view is also quite nice from any direction and the ample windows make it so that the view is not missed.

The house was clean and came well equipped with all of the utensils we could want. There was a dishwasher, microwave, stove, and grill outside. The refrigerator had condiments and there was even a small amount of basic food in the cabinets. There was a clean hot tub that was fully functional and ready for us to use.

The house was comfortable during our stay from a temperature perspective. Since we were here in the summer, it wasn't too cold outside. Still, there were several functioning radiators in every room that I'm sure could keep things nice and warm even in the winter.

The setting of the house is also quite nice. It is located off of a side road not far from route 1 near the town of Hella. This served as a nice base for us when exploring the south of Iceland. We were able to reach Vik in about and hour, Reykjavik in about 75 minutes, and Skaftafell National Park in about three hours. There is a farm adjacent to the property where we saw plenty of Icelandic horses and sheep.

The only negative I would associate with the house is that the wifi was ill-equipped for our group. We were able to connect to the internet, but the speed was glacially slow. It was slow enough that it wasn't worth trying to connect at most times. Since we were in Iceland to get away from our normal lives, this wasn't too big of a deal. You should be advised, however, that the internet access isn't great in case you need it for some specific purpose.

Finally, we had no problems with our booking. The manager was very quick to communicate with us and worked with us throughout the payment process. All of her instructions were clear and we had no trouble reserving the house. I would highly recommend this property for a future stay and would certainly seek it out again if I were to visit Iceland in the future.
