“We Loved Our Stay Here!”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The home was very comfortable and the views from the windows and the back porch are absolutely stunning. Everything went very smoothly with our stay, the only hiccup being with miscommunication about how to obtain the home key (we didn't realize we needed to go to their home first to obtain it, where they also provided extra paper towels and other information about the home like wifi). The location is right along the golden circle and we felt so safe the entire time. We loved using the hot tub and curling up on their couch with the logs in the fireplace burning. We'd highly recommend staying at this delightful cottage!!

“A wonderful cottage.”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here for 3 days in mid March 2017. It was a wonderful stay. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy, and we had everything we wanted. The owners were very hospitable and friendly. We would love to go back!

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 28 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We have just returned from a week away in this beautiful cottage/cabin. We absolutely loved every minute of staying here. The cosy cottage has everything you could possibly need, breathtaking views, a hot tub, and easy access to the bigger towns. We hired a car, which we would recommend, but we also did a lot of exploring of the area on foot. The Northern lights was the icing on the cake, which we could see from the driveway. It was amazing. There was great communication from the owners and they gave us lots of useful information.
I would definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to come back to Iceland :)

“Cottage in the countryside”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Despite a mixup picking up the key this was a nice place to stay in Iceland. Anna Lisa was great, even making us toasted bread and home baked apple cake after our long flight from NYC. A little tricky getting to be cottage but once there we were very comfortable. Lots of towels and linens provided. Hot tub was ready and very warm after a rainy Iceland day. The cottage is very close to the Golden Circle. Don't miss Porufoss waterfall just a few miles down the road with views that rival any tourist attraction. Very nice coffee house at end of road with coffee, beer, wine, and burgers! If you want to be way out of Reykjavik's hustle and bustle pick this cottage.

“A private slice of paradise”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

A small cabin that looks out on a valley and lake, less than an hour out of Reykjavik. Great location, and such a beautiful private view. The cabin is small, with a second bunkhouse with two bedrooms adjacent. Short drive to the Golden Circle, but when we were there, the route was under road construction- acceptable during the day, but we chose not to try the rough roads at night.

WiFi meant that we were able to share our photos instantly with our stateside friends. Haukur made check in easy, and provided clear instructions for check out.

Liked best: The morning view of the valley and lake.
Liked least: Briefly losing wifi connectivity. Haukur fixed as soon as he was informed (which, due to loss of wifi, wasn't until the next morning when we drove into Mosfaeller)
