We hope to make your stay in our cottage an enjoyable one and filled with good memories.

Why Kristín chose Iceland

Cottages Engjagil 4 and 5 in Helludalur Geysir area are built in the year 2007-8, made of logs from Finland, the houses are situated in the peaceful valley Helludalur yet it is in the midst of the Golden Circle, what we love about this place is that we find peace and tranquillity during our stays there and it has been a huge pleasure to share this special place with our guests, we are thankful and blessed to do so.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has enough space for up to 6 persons, the beds are very comfortable and on the loft there is a roof window right above your head so you can see the stars at night. Icelandic ponies are often in the field a few steps from the cottage. Because we have 2 cottages in the same area we can have up to 12 persons at the same time.

Beautiful cottage in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay, the house is lovey and the location is convenient. We have stayed in many rentals during our travels and this is the perfect combination of good value, great location and awesome comforts. The kids loved watching movies, the beds are so comfortable! Great hot tub to relax in the evenings. Thanks so much!

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a visit to Iceland. It is in a beautiful area only a few minutes away from geysir. Kristin makes your visit easy. She answers any questions very promptly & will help in anyway she can. If we return to Iceland we would definitely stay there again

Spacious winter warmth

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin although spacious feels very warm and welcoming. Our 19 month old son loved having room to run around and huge windows to watch the Icelandic ponies from.

Very comfortable bed. Great location to explore the golden circle. A must is The Secret Lagoon (cheaper, quieter and closer than the Blue Lagoon). Gullfoss and the Geysir are especially close.

We only used the hot tub once. It wasn't particularly warm, but I guess that's the nature of the thermals! We still enjoyed our soak and looking up at the starry night .

The kitchen area though small is well equipped. We managed fine, a large group however, may struggle.

My only negative would be cleanliness. The kitchen, bathroom and general bedroom/ living area were very clean. It's smaller things like under sofa cushions were dirty with food crumbs (discovered when retrieving lost toys) . The windows (internally) smeared and their ledges at floor level were also dusty. To be fair, probably not something most would notice or care about, but having a toddler I did. Perhaps this is more the fault of previous guests not cleaning up after themselves than Kristín's !

We didn't see the Northern Lights but this would be the perfect cabin to view them from.

Owner's Response: Thanks for posting the review, I am sorry about the smeared windows and crumbs under the sofa cushions, I will step up the cleanliness in these areas. Not my guests fault ...totally mine! I am supposed to clean after each guest, So sorry that you had to experience that. The tub varies from 38-41 celsius, since it is from the geothermal water hole somedays is warmer water than others. I hope you enjoyed the toys for your little son. Welcome back anytime! Kind regards, Kristín

Well equipped perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a family with adult children. Enough space in teh big living room, hotpot is fantastic and everything is clean. Near to the main attraction it is very quiet - a contrast to the busy Strockur!

Would recommand aalso for a longer stay!

Truely a rare find!

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home the moment we walked in. Very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. The views are spectacular and the hot tub is the perfect way to end a day of exploring. Kristin is awesome to work with. For folks that have traveled a little it this will certainly be on the top of your list of places you've ever been. Seldom do we entertain the idea of returning to a vacation location- too much else to see- but we can definitely see ourselves back in Iceland and at this house. Thank you very much.
