Newly built 50m2 house by Ellidavatn. The house is located in a short distance from Elliðárdalur and Heiðmörk which are Reykjaviks nature pearls. Good walking and cycling paths are in the area. There are only a few km to downtown Reykjavik. Tenants will have access to a hot tub and a BBQ. One bedroom is in the house and there is a double bed in there. Then there is a sleeping sofa. A washing mechine, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, tv and internet are among the equipment available for tenants.
This little cottage was perfect for our trip. The space is plenty big enough for a couple. Having a kitchen was great, and we walked just a short distance to Bonus (seeing lots of beautiful horses on the way!) and we saved a lot of money by purchasing groceries and cooking 2 meals a day. The clothes washing machine was great, as was the dishwasher. The hot tub was awesome but I wish we had used it more. We had some issues with it the first night and we were hesitant to try to use it without our hosts helping. The cottage is close to everything we wanted to do and it was a short drive to anything we did. It was very clean and the area felt very safe.

This lodge was amazing, it helped to make an incredible holiday! The lodge really is a great, cosy space and was a great location for us. The hot tub is a great addition. In order to ensure you have easy access to shops and Reykjavik we would say that having a rented car is quite important. You're not very far from anything but just far enough that you'll want a car for ease of mobility.
We would only advise for future reference that there is a bit more clarity on the process for finding / picking up the key etc, as we had initially been instructed that we would find it under the flower pot near the front door, which did cause a bit of confusion as to which lodge we were meant to be staying in. Other than that everything was straight forward and we loved the place, location and just Iceland! We would definitely come back here in a heartbeat!
Thank you very much.

Stayed here two nights. This was near Reykjavik and the airport. Clean and well equipped. One tip for the owner: please provide some manual for the television
