This is a charming cabin in the middle of a farm. The cabin itself is as described, it worked fine for our family of 4 for a couple days. Renters should beware: the 'hot tub' is not actually a hot tub. It is a jacuzzi tub that you must manually fill & empty after each use. We were unable to make it work during our stay, as the instructions at the home were not accurate. We were extremely disappointed as this was the reason we selected this cabin. If you're not going for the hot tub, you will find this cabin to be a sweet accommodation. If the hot tub is a selling point for you (as it was for us), I'm afraid you will be disappointed.

A little out of the way, but comfortable, if a little tight in some places, and had all the facilities needed

Hemlulundur was the perfect accommodation for our family of four. Very cosy inside with excellent beds and all the amenities you would expect in a high class holiday let. The position was secluded but at the same time perfect for exploring Vik and beyond. Would recommend Hemlulundur unreservedly. Our host Rakel was very helpful. 5 stars.

The chalet is exactly how it is pictured in this listing and the small considerate touches like the manicure set and hair dryer plugged into the ceiling of the tiny bathroom were much appreciated. We could feel the generosity of spirit and the care that has gone into making the space useful and comfortable for travellers. The only fault that one could find is the tightness of the bathroom, but this miniscule flaw is amply compensated by the natural beauty of the great outdoors that surround the cabin. Thank you Rakel and Kari for being such wonderful hosts.

Absolutely loved our accommodations in Hemlulundur! The four of us had never been to Iceland and only had four days to explore. The location was ideal for making short day trips around the South Coast. We packed our days with exploring the country, but it always felt great to come back to such a cozy home.
Also, because dining out is so expensive in Iceland, we cooked most of our meals at the house. There is a good grocery store just a few minutes down the road, so again, the location was perfect.
Gas grill, warm shower, well-insulated home, picturesque views, responsive renters. I highly recommend this bungalo!

A nice cottage which is used by the owner too. Silent located and it's far away enough from the main road to see Northern Lights if possible during your stay - enjoy.

Perfect centralized location for seeing all sights on South coast. Also close to ferry if you want to go to Westman Islands. Close enough to Capital that you can get up early on day of departure. Will sleep 6. Has 3 double beds. One in loft.

This is a lovely property situated in a large plain with horses and sheep. It is close to a major highway and only 15 minutes from a spectacular waterfall and within an hour of lots of other tourist destinations.
The house was clean and warm. Unlike some properties in Iceland, this one does not have geothermal hot water. It is electrically heated as well as the radiators. Our kids loved the loft bed, and it has plenty of electrical outlets and even some with US adaptors, and it has wireless. The kitchen is well equipped although they could use a new skillet. We did not try the hot tub but it looked nice. Like other properties in Iceland, you have to fill the hot tub and empty it, they don't use chemicals in their hot tubs. I highly recommend this place, although they don't leave any written instructions for guests. But if you have questions they respond immediately.

Wonderful stay! The views around the house are incredible. Beautiful sunset, glacier view and wide surroundings. Lovely wooden cottage, with plenty of space (we stayed with 6 people). We even gave the outside hot tub a try, awesome! Would definitely recommend to stay here.

This was a great property to stay at for three days when seeing the sights in Southern Iceland. There is plenty of room for a family and a full kitchen (bbq too) if you want to make meals. I would highly recommend this home for your stay. The hosts were very helpful and responded to any questions we had quickly.
