Absolutely Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this perfect cottage for a week, 2 adults and 2 children. Every one of us loved it. It is warm and cozy and in a spectacular location. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and so quiet. There's plenty to do in the area - horse riding, Riverjet, Secret Lagoon and plenty more. Geysir is practically next door and there are plenty of walking trails.

The kitchen in well equipped and makes it easy to cook meals. The lounge area is comfortable with plenty of DVDs for evening watching. The hot tub is great too.

Booking was simple as Kristín responds almost immediately to any question with clear and informative answers. If I return to Iceland I'll definitely rent this cottage again.

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!

Comfortable cute cottage in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage! We had great weather which allowed us to see the beautiful surroundings. The hot tub was an added bonus as we used it as much as we could after long days of hiking. Being so close to Gysir is really nice too. My boys enjoyed climbing to the top of the hill there and exploring the area which was very safe. We were in a good location to get to most attractions. There are a whole bunch of brochures in the cottage to look at in case you don't have a plan. The kitchen had all that we needed and the beds were very comfortable. Thank goodness for their blackout shades! Kristen was a pleasure to work with as well. If you are coming from the US remember to bring a converter to convert the power for your electric appliances like razors and such. Enjoy!

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.
