Beautifully presented summer house with a lovely hot tub. The gardens back onto a mountain stream with cascades and small waterfalls. A very pleasant place to stay near Husafell.

Nearly two years have passed since our visit to Iceland. I must say we think and chat about that trip every day. A part of our trip was spent here at this fabulous cabin. We were 2 couples and were quite comfy during our stay. The hot tub was the high point of course. The cabin is well stocked...however, be sure to shop for EVERYTHING before you leave Reykjavik...as the only store relatively close is a SMALL,with limited choices. We made it work....Thanks so much for the opportunity to visit this beautiful country!!

It was a really nice summerhouse, private and close to Husafell. The hot tub was really nice in the evening to watch the stars, to bad it was no northern lights during our stay.

This is a great cabin, very homely and comfortable with everything you need. The cabin was very clean and well presented with clear instructions and ideas I for local activities. We particularly liked the location in the woods, but close to the road for easy access (felt secluded even with other cabins around). The area was great with lots of walks and sites to see, but with a lot less people than further South (the two local waterfalls are spectacular). We also managed a day trip to the Snaelfellness pininsula, which was fantastic but a long day. Getting back to the cabin was was always good - with the hot tub being an added bonus. As well as the main cabin, the gardens are good, with plenty of seating, terrace, firepit and a bench with a view.

The summerhouse is really well located. We had a nice time and enjoyed the peacefull nature.
Despite I was disappointed about the cleanliness of the summerhouse as I think somebody with a dog staid there before us and big clouds of dog hair were on the floor when we arrived. We mentioned this to the owners who apologized for this and appreciated the feedback.

Fínasti bústaður í frábæru umhverfi.. hefði verið gott að vera með barnastól þar sem við vorum með eina 1 árs. Ef hann er til staðar þá er hann allavega vel falinn þar sem leitað var vel og lengi. Eins væri gott að bjóða upp á hlið neðst í stiganum fyrir litla óvita og hliðið sem er uppi gerir ekkert gagn þar sem hægt er að komast framhjá því á hliðinni. Annars takk fyrir okkur :)

A lovely summerhouse 8 minutes drive down a gravel lane. Completely quiet and beautifully clean. With a great hot tub, amazing location next to the little river and an enchanting garden which our kids (2 & 4) loved! Absolutely everything we needed and a perfect holiday house. Comfy beds and very well equipped kitchen. Highly recommend the swimming pool and kids play area at Husafell and the close by waterfalls of course. I hope we can come back.

We enjoyed staying in this nice house. Everything was clean and cosy. The hot-tub was good. We also very much enjoyed the beautiful environment, in particular the stream and the ,,meditation" spot by the waters.

Fairly good cabin with good privacy from other cabins since this is at the end of the road, location is 12 min. drive to Húsafell passing trough great nature. I recomment to buy the ticket to the swimming pool rather that buying each time if swimming is daily and counts more that 4 guests. Did not use the hot tub but the rest was up to expectations.

Rented this nice cottage over the last weekend in May 2015. Location is excellent, great places to see nearby such as 3 glaciers, caves, hiking trails, etc. Nice swimming pool and country-store nearby too. Although part of a cottage area, it feels very private, with a great view to the glaciers and a nice small canyon and river in the back-yard. Cottage was roomy with two bedrooms for 2 persons each and a second-floor low-ceiling mattress space for kids to shack up together. Very well equipped with a good gas barbeque, outdoor hot tub, bedding & linen, full kitchen and utensils, as well as wifi and TV with DVD. Got lucky with the weather, sunny and 14 plus degrees. The 3 boys we took with us just loved the garden during the day and we appreciated the sizeable lounge area in the evening (had 9 people for a barbeque dinner one evening). Highly recommended for a solid out-of-town experience (about 1,5 hr drive from Reykjavík).
