This is a spacious, country-style cabin that had plenty of room for our group of 7 people (two families including 3 teens and 4 adults). The pictures do not do the house justice; the house has beautiful views from every window, large windows and sliding doors downstairs and upstairs, and a small sitting area upstairs in addition to the living room area downstairs. The decor is very country (more overstuffed chairs and wood paneling than the sleek Scandinavian/modern design that's more typical in Iceland) but it works and it doesn't feel stuffy or dated at all. The kitchen is spacious and well-stocked (including a Nespresso machine with plenty of pods, which was much appreciated). We liked having two full bathrooms with showers. The showers are small by American standards but the small size is not uncommon in Europe. In all, we had a wonderful few days at this house, with no major problems at all.
There only two very minor frustrations: the combination washing machine/dryer was very difficult to figure out with all its cryptic symbols. A manual or guide to these runic markings would have been useful. Also, it was a bit hard to figure out how to reach the property, as the Google maps link to the address takes you to the nearest location on road 30, but there is no obvious way to get to the house from that spot. To reach the house, turn from road 30 onto road 344 towards Hruni, then take one of the first dirt tracks on the right (at the sign for Viking Villas). Continue following the road until the next sign for Viking Villas and turn right. You will see the house a little way down on the right.
