We liked the cottage, the location and the hot tube so much. So it was hard to leave it today. The place is equipped with all you need for your stay in this area. The sleeping rooms are small, but the living room/kitchen has all the space you need for a family of four. Its easy to reach from the ring road, in winter time you properly need a 4x4. The garden is very large, the area quite and safe.

We had a great time in this wonderful house. Very comfortable and with much love for details. We love the big hot tub and recommend the house Björk in every possible way.

Wundervolles Häuschen in ruhiger Lage etwas abseits der gängigen Ringstraße. Die gute Ausstattung und die Bitte der Gastfamilie, immer ein paar Vorräte für die nächsten Gäste dazulassen, fanden wir sehr hilfreich, nachdem wir erst am Pfingstsamstag Abend ankamen und dann an zwei Tagen die Geschäfte geschlossen hatten. Das Cottage ist sehr gemütlich und mit viel Liebe fürs Detail eingerichtet und man merkt gleich, dass die Besitzer es auch selbst oft nutzen.

The cottage was amazing. The owners were very kind and heated for us so we could get cozy when we arrived. Very well furnished and the hot tub is auch a treat after days of exploring. The area is very quiet. The road to arrive to the cottage was a bit scary the first time but you get used to it.
Thank you for having us, it was amazing!

The Bjork cottage is a wonderful place. It is a cozy and comfortable home, very well equipped with everything you need in a spectacular location. The hot tub was most welcome after long days exploring and the views are simply amazing.

Absolutely loved this place! The cottage is beautiful and in a spectacular setting in the Hekla region. We climbed the volcano Hekla 1 day. We drove the Geysir geysers and Gulfoss waterfall on another day. Great location from which to see southern Iceland.
The cottage was well-appointed with kichen accessories and was very comfortable. The bread ingredients made for a tasty, healthy bread one morning - a nice touch!
Highly recommend this cottage!

What a wonderful place to stay! The cottage was well kept and appointed and perfect for our family of 4. The bread fixings and the breadmaker were so thoughtful and a great way to start our morning. We used this location as a jumping off point for our touring and we always looked forward to coming "home" to this wonderful spot. We only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding Bjork. With the long days we got to enjoy the hot tub during a beautiful sunset. Perhaps next time we will come during winter to see the Northern Lights!

We LOVED our stay at the cottage. It was obvious the owners put a lot of thought into the cottage, as it had everything we needed. The hot tub was lovely at the end of the day watching the sunset, the kitchen had absolutely everything you could need. It was so wonderful to make a loaf of bread in the breadmaker and so thoughtful of our host to leave us a a loaf ready to go. The area around the cottage was very pretty considering the rough lava road to access the cottage. There were so many birds around and we really felt like we found a our own private getaway.
Johanna was so helpful with recommendations and directions we felt like a family friend.
