Amazing cottage with amazing views..... take me back!!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos definitely do not do this place justice..... it was incredible to watch the view as the sun was coming up over the mountains. We had been to Iceland before but we took 9 friends with us who hadn’t and needless to say they were definitely impressed with the cottage. The location was perfect. We were able to do so much in the 5 days we were there.... the golden circle, Kerid crater, Reykjavík, Blue lagoon, Seljandafoss, Skogafoss, Vik and the black sand beach. It was perfect after a long day exploring to come back to the warm cosy cottage and relax.

We had a few minor problems with the hot tub which Soffia and her husband were really helpful with. They responded so quickly and actually it turned out it was us not understanding properly. We have stayed in other cottages in Iceland where we have had hot tubs and whilst they have been lovely and warm initially, due to the cold air temperature they normally cool down quite quickly. The one in this cottage was actually fantastic as it had a continuous hot feed. Which was why initially we thought there was a problem as it was scorching hot and we were unable to get in. All you do is use the cold feed (from the hose pipe) until you get it to the correct temperature and then get in. If it got too hot again whilst we were in it we just put the cold on again to cool it down. This all meant we were able to spend the whole evening in the tub watching the incredible northern lights. The hot tub was big enough for all 11 of us to fit in which was great. The house was perfect and the beds comfy. The kitchen had everything you need. The only thing I could possibly suggest to improve is a more detailed welcome folder showing how to use the appliances in the cottage as it took us a little while to figure out the oven and surround sound. But this isn’t really a criticism as the cottage really was amazing and Soffia was extremely friendly and helpful. We would love to come back again one day.

Just brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us visited at the beginning of November for the 40th birthday of a friend. The house is even better in reality than the photographs suggest. Furnished and equipped to the highest standard in every aspect.

We especially enjoyed the large communal lounge, dining and kitchen area.

Soffia was very pleasant to deal with and keen to offer any help with planning or questions we had.

The location is incredible; fantastic views and very serene. We saw the Northern Lights on one evening which truly capped a wonderful stay.

If this property suits the size of your party then book it without reservation; you will not regret it for a moment!

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

I was traveling with extended family in a group of 9 adults and worried about finding a house large enough for all of us. I should not have been worried; Soffia's house in Hella was absolutely perfect! It is spacious enough for large groups. We could have had several more in our group and still been comfortable!

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.
