“Don't look any further, you found the place you have been looking for!”

We stayed in this lovely cottage for 10 days with 5 adults and we fell in love with the place. We realized that we chose this cottage based on the positive reviews and that we didn't have a clue what it actually looked like. I think the pictures don't show the cottage itself to get an idea, but you can believe what everybody says: it's a great place to stay.
The view is amazing and changing every minute. We were so lucky to have breakfast outside at the sunny porch a couple of times and if you don't watch out, you don't want to go sightseeing anymore.
The cottage itself is cosy and very complete. The fireplace in the living room and the Jacuzzi outside are two valuable extra's.
The little house behind the cottage has two bedrooms and a toilet. It didn't bother us at all that we were separated from the main house. It gives you a bit more space.
The area is beautiful too. Although it is a little bit in the middle of nowhere, it is a perfect place to explore this part of Iceland. You can drive many different routes to reach any kind of destination, so don't be afraid that you have to drive the same road over and over again.
We have infected some people around us with our enthusiasm for Iceland and we definitely told them to stay in this cottage, even if it's only for a few days.

“Nice Cottage - Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The cottage is comfortable and a great place to use as a base for traveling and exploring that part of Iceland. The views from the deck are beautiful and it is in a very quiet and peaceful area. The hot tub and fireplace were a bonus for us. As we were only a couple we did not have access to the back extra house. We found the double bedroom very small and the bed very small for the two of us. The kitchen could also benefit from some updating. But in saying that, we had a lovely stay.
