The house still nice like last year, maybe too busy, didn't make the beds, so I need to make all the beds for my guests. Lucky they were enjoyed to stay here. Wash machine works very well.

Beautiful cottage in a farm zone far from civilization. Quiet and nice, roomy. With all tableware necessary to live and cook several days, like at home.
We can see the auroras several days,.....
Only one question to be perfect. Other bathroom.

Nice, big house next to a small river in a very calm area. It only needs one more bathroom or at least a second toilet.

Large house. Enough space for 2 families. There is only 1 bathroom. Very good WiFi.

Thanks for your great cottages. My clients and I are satisfied your cottages. there are only small things need to fix, but we love your cottages.
Washing machine has little problem, out of order.
The shower plumbing is clogged, water goes down slowly.
Wifi is on, but has no connection.
I look forward to future collaborations. Hope you enjoy Taiwan dessert.
Thank you again.

I rented Kroktun for my guests who were attending my wedding, as I was staying in hotel Ranga. Kroktun is around 30 mins from the hotel, which my guests found do-able. They were all very impressed when we arrived, lots of room and beautiful quaint decor. The owner always emailed me back if I had a question. You have to drive up a muddy path and open a gate to get to it, but our 4x4s managed it easily. The surroundings are beautiful and so quiet. No kettle and no WiFi, which we found difficult when trying to contact guests.

Króktún is a lovely, cozy cottage with everything you need for a country getaway, whether in summer or winter. Our group of 9 spent a cozy winter weekend at the cottage and were very happy with it. It was easy to find, even in the dark, and the interior is as depicted in the photos. When we awoke the next morning we were pleased to see a beautiful view in every direction. The only major downside for larger groups is that there is only one small bathroom. Otherwise, no complaints. I would highly recommend Króktún.
I am very happy to hear that you where satisfied. You are always welcome to come back :)

This was a wonderful place to stay. A few minor bugs were worked out quickly with the manager of the property and the rest of the time, we just enjoyed being in the house. Across the river were lambs playing, we had to go slowly out the driveway because of the ewes with triplets. The house was easy to use and spacious. It is a little way off the main road but it is not really a problem.

fannst vanta inn að þetta er EKKI á milli hvolsvölls og Hellu!! heldur Selfoss og Hellu
Sæll Guðni, mér þykir leiðinlegt að staðsetningin hafi ekki verið rétt. Ég er þegar búin að laga þetta. Vona að þið hafið haft það gott í Króktúni.

Excellent location and easy access. Warm and nice. One of the best experience I have had with renting an Icelandic Hut.

Ágætis bústaður, set þó spurningarmerki við lýsinguna: "Í þremur herberjum eru tvö tveggja manna rúm". Get ekki sagt að það hafi staðist, svo var trampólínið ónýtt og vatnið ekki drykkjarhæft, að öðru leiti var þetta snyrtilegur og fínn bústaður.

Gott umhverfi og notalegur bústaður. Dvölin var stutt en alveg frábær!

Ljómandi góður bústaður þar sem allt er til alls. Var með 10 í gistingu í 3 daga og það rúmaðist bara ágætlega.

We´ve had a very nice and warm staying in the winter time at Króktún! A deep black sky with bright stars and northernlights! A beautiful view at the Helka volcano! Thank you for the nice staying!

Very nice and warm, lots of space and plenty of rooms.
In good weather you have good views of Hekla. Great for Landmannalaugur.
