It was a nice cottage in the nature. We had a good time. Its a good place for Sightseeing. For adults the beds of the small room are not so good.

Ágætis gistiaðstaða fyrir 2 nætur í okkar tilviki. Greinilegt að bústaðurinn hafði ekki verið þrifinn nógu vel af fyrri leigjendum. Nýttum hvorki heitan pott né grillaðstöðuna. Vorum í vandræðum með að fá sjónvarpið til að virka, engar stöðvar náðust. DVD-spilarinn reddaði málunum. Brauðristin er nánast ónýt. Annar borðbúnaður í fínu lagi. Óheppilegt er að einungis er bara eitt bílastæði við bústaðinn.

Everything as described. Lovely area and view from the cottage. For those wanting to use the hot tub it should be noted that it takes a very long time to heat up but this is the nature of electric hot-pots. Would make sense to have chlorine tablets around for hygienic reasons.

Very rural location, wonderful views, can only hear the sound of the birds, but takes some finding, follow the owners directions carefully,persevere as it is worth it. Be aware you have to climb wooden steps to get to the bungalow and more steps up into the property. Cook said the kitchen was well stocked, and the living room was well presented and spacious enough for 4. The electric heating was actually a bonus as it was very controllable. Linen and towels were available if needed, but we brought our own, shame the hot tub did not work but we would book this property again.

The house is nice and cozy; isn't available geothermal heating, so heating is electric and the hot tub (electric) doesn't work. Remeber that the owner don't provide sheets, towels and cleaning.
Good site, in the wood, but not easy to find for not icelandic...

Wonderful retreat with every comfort. However, make sure you ask the owner for the combination to the key safe under the roof. We arrived and were unable to get inside. Fortunately we found another tourist with a mobile phone and could ring to get the combination. Also bear in mind this cabin is quite remote. You must print a map from Ja or you will never find it. It's about 3 km from Highway 1 up a series of dirt roads. Our little hire car only just managed the ruts and pot holes!

Okkur gekk svoldið erfiðlega að finna húsið en það hafðist á endanum. Dvölin var mjög fín, eini gallinn var að potturinn tók sinn tíma í að hita sig. Takk fyrir okkur.

A very nice summerhouse with a wonderful view all around but not far from the main road and the town of Borgarnes. The living-room is very pleasant and wide enough for the four of us and the kitchen is well-equipped to make cooking : a really good address!

Krúttlegur bústaður fyrir fjóra. Allt hreint og fínt. Eldavélin er ekki í fullri stærð og því ekki pláss fyrir læri í ofninum en þá er bara að fara út með grillið.
