A small cozy guesthouse by the main road (highway 1), about an hour drive from Reykjavik and easy to find. The house is newly renovated and furnished and is suitable for 3 guests. On the ground floor is a bedroom with double bed and in living room one sofa. There is a excellent shower in the bathroom and towels are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary tableware and cooking utensils, a cooker, oven, microwave and a fridge.
The house is perfect for people that want to enjoy a cozy time and a good night sleep at a clean and warm house on their way around the country, or if they want to spend some time in that amazing area. A 15 min drive is to the nearest town, Hella, where shops, swimming pool and restaurants can be found. Horse rentals are all around and from the windows horses and sheep are within sight. During winter time the night sky is very clear and stars and Northern lights are frequently seen.
The house is situated close to all the main gems that the south of Iceland has to offer; Gullfoss & Geysir, Þingvellir, Landmannalaugar, Vestmannaeyjar, Eyjafjallajökull glacier, Þórsmörk, Laugarvatn and Hekla. Organized bus trips around these areas are also available from Hella (15 min drive) and the harbor for the Ferry to Vestmannaeyjar (Westmann Islands) is 30-40 min away.

A wonderful little place for us to stay for our first night in Iceland. It was an easy drive from Reykjavik and very easy to locate off of Route 1. This seems similar to many small little cottages throughout Iceland with a small bedroom with a double mattress, small bathroom, living/eating area (with a sleep sofa) and a loft. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and everything we needed to clean up after ourselves. The sheep and horses, as neighbors, were a wonderful addition -- and they weren't even too noise.

This cottages was amazing. We enjoyed every day we´ve stayed in this cottages. It was clean, had the perfect size for a couple and was well located. Sightseeing was perfectly from our location and you get a great overview of iceland. We can recommened it to someone who wants to stay at one place at night and for having great daytrips all over iceland!

Looks small at first, but a great design which made it fine for the four of us. Well-equipped and comfortable. The nearby main road (route 1) can not be detected from the house, and the location is very convenient for many nearby tourist attractions.

Very nice cottage, well situated and well equipped.
My 3 years daughter loved her "bedroom" on the top floor :-)

Very pretty house lost into campaign with horses and sharps all around. Very smart and clean. We took real pleasure to spend times in this place very central to explore this beautiful part of Iceland.

The surroundings of the holiday house are lovely with horses, sheep and wild birds to enjoy. The house was clean and warm. We experienced two problems - the noise and the light. The floor between the downstairs bedroom and the sleeping space above it does not reach the outside wall, so every sound made in one area was heard in the other, along with every movement made in the upper area. The upper area was impossible to make dark enough because it is open to the sitting room/kitchen which does not have black out blinds. It also cannot be made quiet because of the noise from the loud fridge.
Overall we would recommend the house for a couple, but if more people wish to share it they need to bear in mind that the upper sleeping area is open to the sitting/kitchen area.

What an amazing find! A beautiful cosy cabin just off the main road. We stayed for one night, after exploring the Golden Circle before heading East. As well as being extremely clean and with everything you could need, including toaster and shower gel, the loft was the highlight! :)

Lovely comfortable and clean cabin conveniently placed just off Route 1 and within easy reach of the Golden Circle attractions in south western Iceland. Sadly we only stayed one night.
