This is the location. You can paste this link and use Google maps on your mobile to find the cottage.
The address is Stráksmýri 15. (Indriðastaðir)
This map shows the location with a bit more detail in the area.
It's a 45 minute drive from Reykjavík. (Route 1)
Just before you arrive in Borgarnes you see a sign that says "Hvanneyri". Take a right on the "Hvanneyri" sign.
If you are coming from the other direction (Borgarnes) take the first left turn after crossing the bridge.
Drive 10km and go past the sign that says "Hreppslaug", go over the bridge and take a right turn at the Skorradalur sign.
Drive 6km and take a right turn at a sign that says "Hvalfjörður".
Then drive for a few minutes and take a right turn when you see a small green shed.
This is the entrance gate to the area where the cottage is. Guests need to phone the host and he will open the gate. After that guests use the mobile phone that's inside the cottage. That phone has the number of the gate saved as a contact.
The check in is usually to 22:00. If you arrive after 22 please do the following. Walk past the gate and up to the cottage. (5 min walk) From there you can use the mobile phone to open the gate. If it happens by any chance that the gate won't open, just reboot the phone.
Drive up the hill and take a right at the "Stráksmýri" sign. It's the first cottage on your right.
The wifi password is on the router. (black thing says nova on it)

The summerhouse was great, we really enjoyed our holidays there. Our host was very nice, he helped immitiately when we had a problem with the key.

We had a great stay and the location and style of the accommodation really worked for us, but there were a number of things that would have made it even better:
a) Blackout blinds on the windows (or even just curtains)
b) Some information about the accommodation on arrival, e.g. how to use the hot tub, where to put bins, the nearest shops, etc.
c) Full use of every bedroom.
d) The host was very gracious in giving us a partial refund because the hot tub wasn?t working when we arrived, but it didn?t get fixed until about 48 hours before we left, and even then it was not straightforward to use (it was too hot, for example).

Everything about our weekend here in Skorradalur was perfect!

It's a wonderful cottage with enough space for a few people. It's well equipped to cook or throw something in the oven or on the grill (which we didn't use). Nice sized deck to sit outside with outside dining space and hotpot. Beautiful surroundings and close to Borgarnes.
We would rent it again.

Excellent space with great views and lots of privacy. Good location for accessing sites like Glymur and Snaefellsnes peninsula. The owner was also helpful and answered any questions in a timely manner.
