This little red house with a guesthouse is located south/east of Reykjavík 99 km. It's a very a quiet area only two other houses nearby, belonging to adjacent properties.

The view is magnificent, Thjórsá (the longest river in Iceland) and the volcano Hekla is right out of your window and just beautiful nature all around.
In the house we have a combined kitchen with the living room, and two bedrooms, one double and the other one single. In the guesthouse is a double bed. In the main house there is one bathroom with a shower.

Outside is a hot tub. It is very nice to go in the hot tub, take a deep breath and take a look at the beautiful surrounding nature.
Nearby ca. 3 min. drive is a mini market, a restaurant and a swinning pool.

Flúðir is a small village it is 21 km away, there you can find a supermarket, a liquor store and a swimming pool.

Laugarás (20 km) is known for the green houses, where you can buy fresh vegetables, spices and organic eggs, and in the summertime there is a kind of a zoo (Slakki) where you can see Icelandic animals and the children can pet with cute kittens and puppies!

Skálholt is a historical place and it takes 23 km to drive. Classical conserts often take place in the church in sommertime.

The Golden Circle attractions Gullfoss/Geysir (including Thingvellir) is about 46 km away, is an ideal day trip possible to enjoy outside office hours.

Stöng in Thjórsárdalur is about 20 min.drive. Stöng was built in 1974 and is a reconstruction of a medieval house (a.d. 930 -1262) and it is very interesting to take a look at that.

There are also many horse rentals nearby!

My wife and our 1.5 year old son stayed here recently and it was such a wonderful experience. It is tucked behind some trees just off the road and has a river or fjord in the backyard. We enjoyed many hot tub dips including at night, was so no nice with the chilly weather to sit in the warmth and look at the sky. The cabin is very well maintained, and super comfortable, with lots of quirky bit and bobs to look at.
We would highly recommend staying here and would return again in a heartbeat!

We stayed here seven nights with three women and were very happy with the house, especially with the hot pot.. The kitchen was very well equipped, everything was very clean and in order, only one lamp was not working, but I'm sure the owner will fix it immediately. We got a clear advice how to go there and the house is situated perfectly for tours in south Iceland
Response from Andrea Gu?mundsd?ttir
Thank you for lovely words. I fixed the lamp, ha ha. Always welcome again.

The house is a special and a wonderful place, very personal, decorated with rare things, probably from Africa. There is a good guitar and drums, a ghetto blaster and the hot tub is just the best after a long day of traveling and hiking around. Perfect and welcoming place located close to all the many routes and places of attraction in the south part of Iceland.

Fallegur bústaður, góður pottur, fallegt umhverfi, hægt að segja að það sé nánast allt til alls. Við söknuðum þess þó að hafa ekki borð og þægilega stóla á pallinum í góða veðrinu, og svo langar okkur að benda á að rúmin eru hreint ekki boðleg miðað við það verð sem sett er upp. Vona að það verði litið á þetta sem vinsamlega ábendingu. Okkur leið heilt yfir mjög vel.

A beautiful cabin, nice hot tuband the surrounding area was beautiful. Infact you could say that you have almost everything you need there. Although we would have loved to have seats and tables outside to enjoy the good weather we had. But we have to say that the beds are not good. When you are paying this amont of money you want the beds to be good and they were far away from being okay. We hope that you take this is a friendly tip.
Aside from that, we loved this little red cabin.

The Little Red House is absolutely fantastic. I loved the artwork and nicknacks around the house. The house had all the bits and pieces necessary for cooking and genaral living. The spa was perfect. The views to the lake and the mountains was great from the spa. We stayed for four days so we got to visit all the great sites in the area.

Thank you Barbara. Welcome anytime. Best regards Andrea.

We spet three days in this lovely cottage, on our 16 days iceland circle tour. We rented/used quiet a few cottages
and "Our Little Red Cabin" is simply the best. The location of the cottage is very good for exploring Golden Circle sights and Landmanalaugar. Once again many thanks to landlord/lady.

A wonderfully situated little cabin with space and tranquility its best assets. Other than the fact that my daughter and I were not willing to try to switch the hot water so that the shower was warm, every else was so pleasant. The hot tub was wonderful to soak in at days end, to help with aches from hiking or traveling. And Hekla was always close by and the mighty river Thorsa flowing by. Excellent.
Response from Andrea Gu?mundsd?ttir
Thank you for nice words.

Best Andrea!

House is all that we needed during the stay in the area. Nice hot tube in the back (never figure it out how to change hot water for shower), great for relaxing.
House was also equipped with most of the things, and small stuff in the kitchen.

Highly recommended if you are thinking of staying in the area.

The cabin is beautifully located on the shore of a river and the hot tub was a special treate after a long hike
