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.

Very beautiful cottage with a great view over hekla. The cottage was very large (we were 4 people) and well equipped. The hot tub was extremely nice with a sunset view! We also saw northern lights. I highly recommend the house!

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.

Great bungalow, very comfortable for 4 people. It's quite isolated, which is perfect for stargazing and watching the Northern lights! Ideally placed to visit Iceland's South Coast. The hot tub is absolutely amazing as well!

Góður bústaður á fallegum stað. Allt virkar (a.m.k. í árslok 2017) og allt stóðst sem var lofað. Ekki er sjálfgefið að fært sé síðustu 3 km að bústaðnum á vetrum. Við sluppum en asahláka breytti veginum í drullusvað.

Sæll og takk fyrir þetta. Það er nú svo að ekki getum við ráðið við veðurfarið.

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.

Beautiful place off the beaten track (with a bit of F road to get there). The house was clean and well-kept, and the hot tub was terrific. Inga was responsive by email and phone. Near historical sites like Keldur, including unmarked ruins a bit further up the road.

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!

An amazing bungalo built with a lot of love and care. We stayed here as a home base for touring the southern coast of Iceland during March. The owners provided very clear and helpful instructions on how everything works and how to get there from the airport. No northern lights, but plenty of other natural beauty. Very quiet and serene.
Response from Sólmundur Oddsson
Thank you! Nice to hear. Sorry we not control the northern lights :)
Thanks for visiting Iceland and choose our house. Hope we will see you again.
Best regards Sólmundur and Inga.

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!

Very, very nice place! Spacious cabin with everything you need or might need. Three bedrooms, all with enough storage room for clothing and to put your stuff. Beautiful view on the Hekla vulcano, and all the other surroundings. BBQ included, and we loved the woodburning stove a lot! 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!
Kind regards, Gert and Mariette

This is an excellent cottage in a nice location. Thanks for having us for a couple of days. Ideal as a hub for the southwest of Iceland. Highly recommended!

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!).

The perfect Iceland setting. Beautiful and quiet. Absolutely perfectly

We did 12 days in Iceland and stayed at 5 different location. All location was great, but we loved that one most.
Clean, beautiful , very well equipped, real bed rooms, a hot Jacuzzi to enjoy the magnificent view ...
a little house in the middle of nowhere. Highly recommended.

Super-cozy cabin!!!! The fireplace and hot-tub were spectacular during the late-winter blizzard we experienced. We would definitely recommend this place. Off the beaten path during the winter; i think we were the only humans for several kilometers. Awesome!

We had an amazing romantic weekend in unadstadir. Nature and the landscape is breathtaking in the area and the summerhouse is perfect. I recommend this place for seeing northern lights while soaking in the hot tub and having a great time. :)
