The house was great, it was equipped with everything one needs and perfectly situated to explore the east of Iceland. It was perfect clean and the owner was very helpful and friendly. The hotpot was a highlight after long days of sightseeing and helped a lot with my aching shoulder. All in all a five star recommendation.

Nice cottage. The room for one has a short bed. Only about 184cm.
Hot pot without bubbles, but perfectly tempered! We were five adults and one child. That?s the most you can fit with ease. Private surroundings. You can hardly see any other cottage.

Takk fyrir frábæran tíma í þessum fallega bústað, 2.-6. júní. Fundum hann auðveldlega með svona góðum leiðbeiningum. Fór vel um okkur og langaði að vera miklu lengur. Mæli sérstaklega með fyrir fólk með ung börn :) Thanks for a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage, found it easily with the good directions. We would have liked to stay much longer. Especially recommended for guests with young children :)

We spend our last two nights in Iceland there before we went back by ferry from Seydisfjördur. We discovered the area around the lake Lagarfjlöt. The cottage is a very nice place close to Egilsstadir, all rooms were lovingly decorated. Beautifuk view from the terrase. But the best thing for us and our kids was the hot pot.

Really nice cottage, warm and beautiful, in short driving distance from Egilsstaðir. Well equipped. We stayed there for three nights in july and really enjoyed it. The surroundings are spectacular with all the plants and trees, just wonderful. The view is really nice. I would recommed this place to all my friends. It is not the most modern place i?ve been to but that is not what I?m looking for (no television, no dishwasher).

This cottage is perfect. Surrounded by beautiful scenery. Everything is in great working order. It is clean and cozy. Nothing like soaking in the hot tub with birds singing in the midnight sun. Amazing. I would rent this cottage again and absolutely recommend it to everyone.

We had a perfect stay at the cottage. The kids loved the garden and were out all the time playing hide and seek or just roaming around. The hot tub with outdoor shower was also a hit. Just be aware when you light to woodburning stove the attic is getting very hot, just in case someone is sleeping there it is like a sauna. There are two windows, one you can hardly open and the other one you have to take out completely which is a bit tricky.
