Great location near the river and beautiful property. The cottage is well equipped making our stay very comfortable. Very helpful host who provided us with tips for eating and shopping. Borgarnes is not so far away for groceries. Hope to be back again soon.

I rented this cabin for 3 nights to have quality time with my mom. Since I live in New York City and I needed to unwind in the countryside and hadn?t seen my mom for 9 months. This was the perfect getaway. The hot tub was the best part. We had a very lovely time and slept so good. Takk fyrir okkur. Mun klárlega mæla með og einnig stefni ég á að leigja bústaðinn aftur síðar.

Yndislegur staður að vera á. Bustaðurinn lítill og sætur. Við höfum ekki sofið svona vel lengi. Þetta er svo rólegt og stórkostlega fallegt umhverfi. Sjá má alls kyns kynjaverur í hrauninu ef vel er að gáð. Takk fyrir okkur

Lovely setting next to the river and the lava. Plenty of short walks nearby at Glanni and Hreðavatn. Good summer afternoon and early evening sun by the hotpot and porch with shelter from northernly winds. Definitely recommend!

A very cosy cottage located in a quiet area with a magnificent landscape.
The cottage is well equipped sleeping four persons easily with room for more in the attic on madrases.
The host was very responsive and helpful.
We are family of four and had lovely days there enjoying the nature and relaxing in the cottage.
We would love to come back some day.
