We have spent in cottage wonderful time. In the cotagge is everything what you need and even more - there is a big movie and music collection. The cottage is warm and cozy. And the jacuzzi is amazing and works very well. I highly recommend this cottage.

We have stayed in Unastaðir many times. It is a lovely, large summer-house, with loads of space for a family of four (or larger) to spread out. The location is marvelous, overlooking the lava plains of Hekla, with the Þríhyrningur mountain overlooking the site and the Eystri Rangá river running nearby. It is cosy whatever the weather and it is a great place just to get lost in nature. You do need a basic 4x4 to get there, but Hella and Hvolsvöllur are nearby. There is a decent Krónan supermarket at Hvolsvöllur, too. On a clear night, you get fantastic views of the northern lights.

Wonderful cottage set in a gorgeous stunning location. The beds are super comfortable and the log burner out of this world. The hot tub was magnificent and we saw the northern lights from the hot tub and all around the cottage. The cottage was totally private when we were there and peaceful with breathtaking scenery all around and out of every window. The owners have gone the extra mile to make it feel like a perfect home from home. The cottage is very cosy and warm and we stayed when it was snowing and minus 15 we were all toasty warm in there. We hired a 4x4 the local supermarket is a 20 minute drive away and has everything you need for supplies.a really beautiful cottage cannot recommend highly enough stay here you won't regret it.

A little hard to find. Try to get there before dark. The last 30 minutes is on an F-road (gravel with lots of pot holes). The cabin is very nice and homey. It has good amenities and is a good location for photographing the aurora. All the heaters had been turned off and our first night was pretty cold. We were able to turn two on and it warmed the cabin well.

Ljómandi góður bústaður, mjög snyrtilegur, hlýlegur, rúmgóður og vel búinn. Á vonandi eftir að dvelja þar aftur.

Nice and comfortable house. Even if the road was ok, just be aware that it?s F road for the 400 last meters and the Island law mentionned that it?s an obligation to use à 4*4 wheel on this kind of road.

One of the best cabins I have ever had the pleasure of visiting, and I visited a good dozen or so. Great layout, well-stocked, everything Just Works. It's a bit off the beaten track but it's absolutely worth the drive. The views are stunning. Would love to visit again.

We stayed in cottage from 10.4-17.4.22. Nice and spacious (We were 4 adults + 2 small children). Faboulous heitapott and also fine with trampoline for the kids. View from house spectacular.
We recommend this cottage

We had en great time during our stay in Unastadir. In Januari it is cold in Iceland but the house is warm and cosy. We enjoyed using the hot tub in the cold weather, a first experience for us. In Iceland the food you buy in the supermarket is expensive but very good quality so we used the barbecue with great result. And Iceland it self: WOW. what a beautiful island. This cottage is near the golden circle and also a must to go is the coast at Vik. On the way to Vik you can visit beautiful waterfalls and a gletcher. Be sure to have a 4 wheel drive car!

A very nice summer house, plenty of space, beautiful inside, and beautiful nature around with a fantastic view. The garden was newly mowed and there were some carrots growing in a garden bed. The trampolin was used lots by the kids. An added bonus was a hot tub ready for use and ready made beds. We loved it.

Nice and comfortable cottage with a view over the wilderness and Hekla birds and nest of Þúfutittlingur in the garden. Cleen and good. Stayed a week with my family and took some trips around Hvolsvöllur and Hella. Found some good restaurants with google and Caves og Hella. Would have liked to see the Lava center but its book ahead so for those who are interested it is nessesary to book 2 weeks earlier minimum.

We stayd here for 2 weeks. My two bays and me had a very relaxing time. The cottage is about 20 Min. from the ring road, some parts very bumpy. You will find everything you need in this cozy cottage, even a small sewing kid. The privat HotPot, trampolin or boardgames are grest. Aldough there are a view other cottages close by, we felt like the only people on the planet.
I can recommand a long stay here very much, there is much to do and to explore. But you need your own car, a 4WD seems a good choice.
We would love to come again.

We had a very nice stay here. Everything was fine, kitchen, shower, internet, beds - everything. We didn't use the hot tub as we went to the secret lagoon instead. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful, homely chalet. It's in a good location for visiting lots of interesting places, e.g. the Reykjadalur hot springs. It definitely needs a 4x4 car to get up the last small hill when it's icy.

We loved our stay at Unastadir. Spend 3 nights here during our road trip. House was big enough for the 5 of us, can easily fit 6. 3 bedrooms with comfy beds. Everything was clean! Fireplace is a nice touch. Large living room, nice and clean fully equipped kitchen. Amazing and luxury hot tub. The huge patio and garden + trampoline were a nice extra. It was so quiet! And saw some jaw dropping sunsets. Highly recommend this cottage! Definitely staying here again visiting while visiting south Iceland. Vik was just an hour away. The gravel road getting to the cottage was a nice bumpy road. But you get used to the gravel roads in Iceland and appreciate them. Hvolsvöllur and Hella were 20 minutes away. (For restaurants and groceries). Thanks so much Sólmundur and Inga!

We stayed at Unastadir with our two sons (7 & 10) during the first week of June 2019. This bungalow was absolutely perfect in every way. It has everything you could need, including a trampoline for the kids. The stove makes it very cosy and the hot tub is superb. The house is about a half hour drive from the nearest small towns, which in my opinion is perfect in terms of convenience if you do need something, but it far enough away that you are really in the countryside, where in the evenings all you can hear are the birds and the nearby river. It's also a great base for exploring the South Iceland region, we went to Vik, Pingavella, and Westman islands from there, as well as looking around more locally. I could not recommend it it highly enough, I only wish we could have stayed longer.

This was a beautiful cabin in a stunning location. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. We loved the wood stove and the hot tub and the kids loved the trampoline. It was great for exploring the south coast and nice hiking along the nearby stream. We even saw the Aurora borealis, which was icing on the cake. The owners were great and very responsive. We could t have been happier!

We absolutely loved this cottage. It was beyond our expectations, so cozy, beautifully built/furnished and well supplied with everything we could possibly need. We loved the quiet seclusion and was easy to get to town if we needed supplies. We spent 4 wonderful nights here and it was very difficult to leave. Many thanks to Inga and Solmundur for providing such a perfect home away from home.

We are very satisfied with this cottage. Well located, spacious, very well equipped, cozy, easy and quick heating, comfortable beds, ... Comprehensive and clear users' information by owners and nice and efficient contact with them.
One (minor) point of attention : for safety reasons terrace could be fenced between pole and wall (= space in front of the chairs on this picture) unless it was left open for some practical reasons of course.

This is a wonderful place! Remote, quiet, majestic views out of every window! Three nice-sized bedrooms. The cottage is nicely furnished and has everything you need. The hot tub is great and very private! Absolutely no negatives from our point of view. However, if you are an urbanite, it is far from any sizeable town. This is a place to enjoy the countryside but come home to comfort.

great place! The hot-tub was stellar, place is even roomier than the pictures make it seem. Everything we wanted to see was about 1-2 hours in any direction, including golden circle, waterfalls near Eyjafjallajökull volcano, and Þingvellir national park. Also super isolated with a great view.
Definitely get a ride with Hella Horse rentals (20 minutes away) and make sure to visit the secret lagoon. :)
This place was great, no problems at all. Thanks for having us!

A very beautiful house, far 20 minutes from the main street, very quiet and with an incredible view. You can forget yourself (and your problems) and relax in the hot tube, or on the sofa, or start a walk into the wild.
The kitchen and the house are super equipped, comfortable and very warm. There is a large dining table and a very comfortable living area. Also tv and radio, internet access, towels and sheets ... all you can wish (better than our house!).
we booked for a week ... a wonderful week in a cozy house!

The cottage was easy to find, tucked about 20 minutes off the main road, just far enough away to feel secluded but close enough for grocery runs. It was warm and toasty, the hot water was perfect, the kitchen was extremely well stocked with spices and pots and dishes. We watched Northern Lights from the hot tub, had plenty of room between the three bedrooms, and loved the area around Hella. The internet worked well for 1-2 people to be answering emails at a time, but we did need to monitor how many of us were connected with phones and computers at any given time. Loved it, would definitely recommend it and stay again!

Too bad the hot tub was broke after one day, but the owners were very helpfull to try and fix it.
Great place to stay!

Even in the light of the beauty and attractions of Iceland, the stay at the cottage was the highlight of our 1-week trip to Iceland. The cottage is super cozy with more amenities than we could take advantage off. The location is unique: away from the tourist circuit, yet, not far from main attractions on the South coast, in the middle of a breathtaking volcanic landscape with a direct view of Hekla volcano (and no building between the cottage and Hekla!).
