Kalastaðir is located only 55 km from Reykjavík in a beautiful landscape. The location is ideal for day trip sightseeing tours to tourist attractions in the South and West part of Iceland e.g. Blue Lagoon, Reykjavík, Gullfoss, Geysir, Thingvellir, Snæfellsnes and Borgarfjordur. The cottage is close to the sea and the view is breathtaking. If you want to take a brake from driving and enjoy what the area has to offer, you can enjoy a stroll by the sea and watch the seals play along the shore. The local swimmingpool is also close by and the local golf course. In the area are many hiking routes and there is a lake close by where you can buy fishing permit. You can buy groceries and other things you might need in Akranes which is only about 15 km from Kalastaðir.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

4 night stay
We stayed 4 nights in cottage number 1 and was not disappointed the pictures don’t do justify how beautiful this place is. We had no issues with the cottages, is what it says it is, the bed was comfortable free WiFi cute little hot tub and amazing views, we managed to see the northern lights 3 nights. The cottage was very clean and warm. The cottage and hot tub both use Geothermal water what it cool. I can’t fault the cottage or the location and very friendly/helpful owners

Great stay
We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a good home base for travel in south Iceland. Nice and quiet, and we saw seals on the beach in front of the cottage. The wifi worked well. Only complaint was that we only got 1-2 channels on the TV, but it was poor weather using an antenna. Would stay again!

Shoreline Surprise...
What a beautiful and remote location.... The owner was so helpful when my other half booked this surprise trip, giving tips on shopping, type of car needed and directions and landmarks to guide us to the door. The Cabin is perfect and well appointed although couple things like shower and cooking equipment could of been cleaned better..... and the hot water smell takes bit of getting use too....... Hot Tub or Hot Pot has no jets but is a great experience as the water is so hot when we filled it we had to wait for it too cool before soaking under the stars and cracking open a bottle of duty free bubbly..... It’s not the place to stay if you want be in amongst the nightlife of the city as it’s bout n hours drive to Reykjavík and costs you every time you go through the tunnel. There’s free WiFi but limited TV to watch when chilling of an evening, we took our Amazon stick and enjoyed a good film one night and music. The view in the morning when you roll up the blinds was amazing and so quiet.... Seals on the beach just topped the stay and although we ventured out and done the Blue Lagoon and other bucket list sights it was great return to the cabin every night n chill.......

Nice and calm Cottage away from tourist crouds
We spent 7 days in this nice cottage, away from tourist crouds. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need. We loved the beach with the seals and the Hot Pot on the terrace! Reykjavic, the Golden Circel Area and Snaefellnes are reachable by car. Even if you have to drive a few kilometers more, the nice and calm environment compensates for that by far. Very good for both - relaxing and sightseeing!

Great View, Great Cottage, Great Location
We stayed three nights in Cottage 1 early in October and had a fantastic stay. The property is immaculately kept and has all the creature comforts of home for your stay. We stayed as a family of three (2 adults and a 14 month old) and enjoyed it as a base to explore Snæfellsjökull which was a great full day trip to explore. The farm which the property is on is beautiful and we explored the shoreline to find some friendly seals bobbing up to see us. The owner was very helpful and friendly to us throughout our stay. We would recommend this property to stay in, it was a great start to our week long trip to Iceland.

Perfekt
Alles in und rund um dieses Cottage ist einfach nur PERFEKT! Die Besitzer sind goldig, das hübsch hergerichtete Cottage ist unglaublich heimelig und sehr sauber! Die Decken riechen als ob sie tagelang ausgelüftet worden wäreb, man hat das Gefühl auf Wölkchen zu liegen! Die Aussicht... Oh mein Gott! Man sieht vom Hot Tub direkt in die Bucht, die Hüttchen sind etwas versetzt, so bleibt auch Privatsphäre. Es gibt wirklich NICHTS das uns hier nicht gefallen hätte!

Our best summervacation ever
I was an overall great experience, the location and the kindness of the owners was tiptop. Our kids are still today talking about our trip to Iceland and really hope that we are going back to Kalastadir next year. The cottage was clean and the kitchen equipped with everything, we needed. The owners were very helpful in regards to the all the questions, that we had in regards to sightseeing spots and the history/culture of Iceland. The open, wide surroundings, so close to the water with the seals coming up in the afternoon was perfect . We had several days, where we were only at the cottage/ in the nearby area because the location of the cottages (and it cosiness) made it possible to relax and still experience the real Iceland with all its varieties without going very far.

Seul au monde
Il y a tout dans ce logement, c'est calme et agréable. Tres belle vue, moment inoubliable. De plus, il n'y a pas beaucoup de lumière le soir et nous avons eut la chance de voir une aurore boréale fin Aout. Petit jeu pour enfant et hot pot sur la terrasse.
