Overview

About the property

Amazing private log cabin

2 bedroom, 1 loft and 1 bath 100m2 (1100sqft) modern log cabin that sleeps 8, 6 in beds and 2 on a pullout. The cabin is about 1 hour drive from Reykjavik in the valley of Helludalur. It comes completely equipped and has everything you need for your stay including an outside hot tub perfect for enjoying the midnight sun in summer or the northern lights in winter.

It truly is the perfect base for exploring The Golden Circle, The South Coast and the Highlands, in fact one of Iceland's most famous natural site the erupting geysers at Geysir is only a short 15 minute walk away. Relax in the cabin or get out there exploring, I’ll be more than happy to help you plan your stay before you arrive and if you would like to take advantage of the many activities around then the agencies will all pick up at Geysir (3min drive). My goal as a host is to make sure you get the absolute most out of your stay!

Renew your relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in warm geothermal water or cosying it up on the sofa enjoying the view of the peaceful valley.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions and if you are ready to book then feel free to use the instant booking option.

Your host,

Runar .

Thanks again

Best Time Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Iceland is such a friendly country! This cabin is as advertised, if not more. I am so happy we picked this cabin! Kristin was Great! We walked to the Geysers and were a short driving distance to some of the best sites in Iceland. You can climb on top of the mountain in front of the cabin easily, the trail starts at the camp beside the Geysers. My kids want to come back to Iceland, and we will certainly stay at these same cabins...no question about it!

Everything You Could Want!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this cottage and it's owner, Kristin. The cottage is located beneath a beautiful mountain, very easy to find and close to Geysir. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, as well as the ability to walk to Geysir after hours and enjoy Strokkur by ourselves. The cottage is filled with everything needed to make a great stay - comfortable bedding and seating, dishes, towels, DVDs, music, even coffee, sugar and dish detergent. We really lacked nothing. Kristin and Bjarni are absolutely wonderful. From the first contact, you can tell they want your visit to be the best it can be. They have outlined everything very clearly from running the hot tub to working the heaters to finding hidden spots to visit. They are accessible at all times for questions and are truly willing to help. I highly recommend either of their cottages - you will not regret staying here!

Stunning cabin in a great area of the Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

This cabin provided all of what we required and more, we stayed here for 3 out of 7 nights of our holiday and could quite easily have spent the whole time there! The only negative is the area on the home description is out by quite a way, as Selfoss is a long drive from the actual location which is two minutes from Geysir!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The cottage is about 40 minutes drive from Selfoss . I have tried to amend the area description in the ad without success. I really do not know why it connects ro Selfoss in the adxertisment. We are in tge Golden circle though in a beautiful spot. Not close to Selfoss if you want to stay near that town.
