The bungalow was in very good condition and everything was as described in the website. Beautiful landscape and the position close to the glacier and large caves.
Astonishing place.

Absolutely a wonderful, clean and well maintained cottage to stay in when one is visiting West Iceland to see spectacular places like "In the Cave, Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls". The host provides all the information guests required to make a memorable stay at this cottage and I will definately visit again. If one is looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay close to Húsafell, I would highly recommend the Flankastaðir Cottage!!!!!

A lovely cottage in a very nice Garden with a wonderful Hot Pot- extremely spacious!
However some new cups, plates and cutlery would do no harm.
In any case we highly recommend this cottage!

Lovely little cottage on a quiet road and not far from the river. Clean and tidy, and containing the essentials, including those necessary for rainy days, such as a television, radio, games and books. The weather was rather wet, so we weren't able to take full advantage of the deck, but we did use the hot pot.

A wonderfully cozy little cottage with a beautifully grown and maintained garden. The cottage was very homey, well stocked with all the little extras in the kitchen, and there was a good selection of movies, books and games. We enjoyed spending time on the patio in the fantastic hot tub, and had a great time driving through the beautiful nature in the surrounding area. Will visit again!

Flankastaðir is an old fashion, but roomy cottage, surrounded by trees and flowers, - so good privacy. The house is very nice and comfortable. The hot tub/ jacuzzy was super nice to relax with water massage. I got very good information beforehand about the cottage and how to get there, maps and check lists -very useful. Thanks and I will be back.

My girlfriend and I had an excellent time at Flankastaðir! We stayed two nights and traveled throughout the region to Borganes, Husafell, Reykholt, and the various waterfalls and lava caves. The hot-pot was a great way to end the long days of exploring! Great access to excellent attractions, and very well maintained! Would absolutely rent again!

Amazing!!! We were able to see the Northern lights from the hot pot. Secluded, but Easily accessible, everything you need is there for cooking cleaning and various little things you may need. It was very clean, we were thoroughly impressed. We only stayed for two nights but wish we had stayed more. No comparison, 5+ stars!!!

Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt in dem gemütlichen und sauberen Cottage mit schönem Garten und Aussicht auf die Gletscherberge. Es war ein guter Ausgangspunkt für die Sehenswürdigkeiten im Westen Islands. In dem sehr warmen Whirlpool konnte man sich abends entspannen und sogar Polarlichter sehen. Wir können das Ferienhaus sehr weiter empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder.

This was just a great stay in this cottage. Both the cottage and the big garden are wonderful and you can enjoy the stay without having other houses too close by.
Host Guðni is especially helpful and friendly and it made the stay even more perfect to be able to have our dog with us.
We can only recomend this stay to everyone!

This was my first time in Iceland, and I stayed at this cottage for the first week of January 2017 with the aim of stalking the Northern Lights. The cottage owner, Gudni , went out of his way many times to enable my stay to be successful. Months before my trip, he provided enthusiastic answers to my questions about his cottage, and about mid-winter Iceland in general. He is a very helpful and genuine guy. Upon my arrival in Reykjavik, he sent me a couple of text messages during the day with Northern Lights forecasts, and assisted me with transport from Reykjavik to the cottage.

The cottage itself has a relatively small ( I say cute ) interior and an expansive wrap-around deck/patio with an awesome Hot Tub ( Hot Pot ) and an under-cover barbecue. The lounge/dining/ kitchen area is perfectly set up, along with 2 bedrooms , and a bathroom. Upstairs, there is an attic bedroom, which I suspect most kids would love.

Having no experience whatsoever driving in snowy or icy conditions, I decided not to drive in Iceland in January. I took a week’s supply of food etc. with me to the cottage. There are a few similar cottages nearby in what I would call a hamlet – so you are not completely isolated from the world. But the only living things I saw for the whole week was a tough black cat hunting in the snow, and one or two birds flying high in the sky from time to time.

I must mention the cottage's tap water which Gudni says is the best tap water in Iceland. Having taken an instant dislike to the strong sulphur smell of the Reykjavik tap water, I was ready to buy bottled water to take with me but did not need it at this cottage.

It was a wonderful time that we spend in Guðni cottage. Hidden between trees made an excellent place to rest and relax. The cottage is equipped with everything that you might need. Guðni was an excellent host he explained everything very precisely and was all the time in contact with us. And the landscapes in the area around the cottage were breathtaking. We fully recommend this cottage to everyone and maybe someday we will return there ;)

Allt í topp standi nema kannski grillið sem er svona að syngja sitt síðasta :) vorum öll ótrúlega sátt og hefðum helst viljað vera lengur, förum bókað mál aftur við fyrsta tækifæri!

Varðandi grillið, þá er annað grill inni í útigeymslunni, en við höfum verið að treina okkur að taka það í notkun í staðinn fyrir það gamla. Geri það um leið og ég fer næst. Takk fyrir ábendinguna :-)

I came  to Flankastaðir for the get-away weekend. And I got exactly what I wanted. The cozy cottage is situated strategically between the historical Reykholt and charming Husafell. It is practically a walking distance from both and I actually walked to Husafell and back and profoundly enjoyed the trip.

The cottage is surrounded by a beautiful garden with dozens of different trees. It was so nice to sit outside with a cup of coffee and listen to the birds singing in the sky. There is everything you need in the cottage. It's clean and quiet, I felt at home. But a big new Jacuzzi topped it all!

The owner, is very helpful and always ready to answer all the questions including traveling options in the area. Guðni, thank you very much for the perfect weekend. I will be back!

We had a very good stay from the 15. to the 17. April 2016 at the Flankastadir Cottage. The Cottage is located in a very nice countryside. The Hot Pot is really great. We made some really good trips around. Visit the glacier and some caves nearby. Many Thanks to Gudni for the nice days on Iceland.

We just spent out 5th anniversary in this cottage, and had an amazing weekend.

The cottage is very cozy and simply gorgeous on the inside. It is also nicely secluded between trees.

The hot tub is AMAZING, and we spent a lot of time in it in the evenings.

Our dog loved running around in the garden.
The owners are super friendly.

I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Superb summerhouse for a family. The large veranda contains the "swankiest hot pot " I have used and is set at the ideal temperature (40oC). This summerhouse is also just a short distance from my favourite waterfall (Hraunafoss) and is only a 90 minutes drive from Reykjavik.

We spent an excellent time in this cottage ! The rooms are comfortable, the small kitchen is very usefull and works well, the sofa and the bed are excellent, and we appreciated to admire the sky by night in the hot tub ...

We just had difficulties to find the cottage the 1st night but it was 1.00 AM and we were exhausted, because except this there is a very nice garden.

It was exactly what we were excpecting for a stay in Iceland !

Thank you again to the very nice and kind owner,

A cosy cottage in nice surroundings. The hot pot was awesome, the beds really comfortable and the bedding warm. It was great to have a TV and the DVD player. I would have loved to get more information on hikes in the area (for example through the lava to Hraunfossar - I had heard that such a hike was possible) but could not find any descriptions so I did not go.
