We had a great time in that lovely Cabin close to Reykjavik. Clean, quiet, nature pure.
If you want to spend a lot of time in the bathroom, then this cabin is not for you.

We loved staying in this summer house on the edge of Reykjavik. It was a wonderful base for exploring the circle route and visiting the city. The cottage is in a wonderful location, perched peacefully on a small lake with a happy sense of calm. It is cosy and charming, with comfortable beds and good kitchen facilities. You should stay here if you are an outdoorsy sort of person who favours homes of character and warmth over sterile hotels. You can use the boat, loll on the veranda and just take a break from travel. All within 15 minutes of downtown Reykjavik.
We would definitely stay here again. Communication with the host was excellent, the WiFi worked well and the rent was reasonable. I suggest only that you pay very close attention to the instructions you are sent as the cottage can be a bit tricky to find if you skim over them.

Dear Landlords, our stay in your little cottage was great. It was everything there what we needed. We would come back again if not the overall prices in Iceland are a little too high. nevertheless great stay- I give you a rating of four stars. Ruediger Rodewald

WE loved this little cottage. Small, but beautiful setting and well organized and w/ all you need. My children already want to return. Easy to Reykjavik. Wish there was internet. Great info left by owner, very clear and understandable.

Wonderful setting and view. Close to Reykjavik, but could be a thousand miles away. Everything catered for, all we needed was to bring the food. A lot of space to run around for the children. The rowing boat and jetty just a few metres away. A hammock as well to help you rest after a pleasurable row on the lake, Lovely.

This cozy cabin is all we needed when we arrived in Iceland in June. The view is amazing! The cabin was clean, had all the basic things you need and with the rowboat on the lake makes this cabin so much fun!
