Absolutely ideal cottage for our family of 5!! Never in all of our travels around the world have we had such a lovely experience with a cottage rental. Besides the excellent cottage itself (see details below), the hospitality of the owner is unparalleled. She was the most wonderful, gracious host we have ever encountered. Not only did she provide us with everything we needed for the cottage, but she also took the time to offer us fantastic tips on great things to do in the area (all of which were excellent advice), and even brought us delicious homemade Icelandic treats to enjoy (which we relished)!
On the cottage itself: Location: Perfect for exploring the south of Iceland, Golden Circle, Reykjavik, Hveragerdi, etc. Cottage: Beautiful, clean, comfortable, bright, carefully decorated, spacious. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom has a great shower. Hands down the most well-stocked kitchen we have ever encountered, with not only the necessary utensils, pots and pans, etc., but spices, oil, flour and other basic cooking needs as well as extras like tea, hot chocolate, a other delicious sundries one does not normally encounter in a rental.
Excellent, excellent cottage and we highly recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect Icelandic experience!!!
