Beautiful. Warm. Secluded. Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Cottage Hóll is a wonderful place to stay at while visiting Iceland. It is a great location for visiting Reyk, all of the sights in the golden circle and southern Iceland.

We would definitely stay again. Páll is an amazing and attentive host. Great communication before the trip, waiting for us at the airport upon arrival, with a GPS and local cell phone for our use the entire stay which was a huge help! Any issue that came up he was spot on to rectify. Including a trip to the cottage during the week to get the hot tub running for us.

The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable. The furniture is comfortable, the beds are great. Plenty of pillows and blankets. Every appliance and dish you could possibly need in the kitchen, which was a huge plus.

The hot tub is warm and relaxing after a long day of sight seeing. And a wonderful place to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. The shower is fantastic, hot and great water pressure!

The only issue we had all week, is that the washer/dryer combo does not work well. It is advertised to have both, but I would plan on just having a washer, and hanging your things to dry. We did not plan on this as we thought we had a dryer....so with 4 people and 6 bath towels in the cottage, we could not fully dry them after washing. Not a big deal, we worked it out and just hung them, but wanted to warn others that were banking on a dryer.

Overall Cottage Hóll is a super choice for your vacation homebase, and Páll will ensure that you have a fantastic trip. I would not hesitate to stay again, and we hope to do some in the summer season sometime!

Thank you!!!

What a wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This house. These owners. The land. The view! Everything was 5 star! If I could give it more I would! Book this place before people figure it out! Sigrun met us at the airport at 5am to give us the house keys and a GPS to save us renting one. Plus a local phone to save money o our own from home. None of this was expected. Pall and Sigrun were always available when we had questions. There isn't anything that this house is missing for a memorable stay! Hot tub. Bbq. Towels. Sheets. Northern lights. Hiking. It's all there.

On our last night we climbed the "mountain" (it's really a hill but to me it's a mountain and I am sticking with that story!) And commented on how this place felt like home. It always welcomed us. It became ours for 5 days.

And I wouldn't want it any other way. Pall and Sigrun as I said before we even showed up. You are 5 star hosts and I can't wait to come back and see you and your wonderful home again!

Cosy cottage in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week with our 2 teenage boys, Pall met us at the airport and gave us a gps and a phone which was very useful and any problems we had he was always at the end of the phone to help, the cottage was lovely and warm, and was equipped with every thing we needed.

The location of the cottage is ideal for the golden circle and many other places to visit.

The secret lagoon (natural spar) in fludir was wonderful and well worth a visit

Excellent cottage well situated

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cottage Holl the first week of August 2015 - couple with 2 teenage sons. The cottage was perfect. We really enjoyed the area - the views from the cottage are great and we got great pictures of sunsets. We loved the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables right from the growers and beef from the neighbouring farm as well as coffee at nearby Braggins cafe/pottery. This was a great location to explore key sights - we did lots of sightseeing and hiking on day trips.

Very comfortable, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time in this warm and comfortable cottage. It had everything you needed for a self-catering holiday. Pall and Sigrun were very welcoming and understanding when our plane was late. The hot tub was popular with all family members. There were plenty of toys and activities to keep children amused. The cottage is extremely well located in terms of views and outlook but also for visiting many places in South Iceland. Food was easily available in nearby Fludir however a longer drive to Selfoss meant much cheaper and greater variety of food. (the veg stop as you enter Fludir was well priced however). There are many attractions within a half hour drive - horse-riding, golf, hot river, Geysir, Gulfoss. I would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable and peaceful place to stay to explore this amazing area of Iceland.
