The view of the meandering waters from the breakfast table is astounding!!! The place was quite cozy and had a well-equipped kitchen. We were able to cook meals in at night. They had a few spices and oils for cooking, which was very helpful. We had long cold days, but this cabin was very warm and welcoming each evening.
The two bedrooms have dark shades which is helpful for the long days....the single bed in the hallway between the two rooms does not have a shade so it's bright there always...a third room on the first floor has a sofa...pull out, if needed, I believe it is a dark room as well.
We did not have time to try the hot tub, but it appears you may have to fill it yourself, ask about that. From Reykjavik it is an hour drive but the drive is breathtaking and you are in the right location to take a trip around the Golden Circle.
FYI: Between Reykjavik and Alfabrekka you have to pass through a 6km lighted tunnel under the water which costs $10 each time. My boys enjoyed the tunnel...we had to pass through 5 times in our 3 days there. We would do it again! There is a small inset (almost a small cave) on the hill behind the cabin that might be of interest for climbing, a very small water fall is visible on the mountain. We did not see a better location for a cabin on the island from Alfabrekka all the way to Vik! So glad we stayed here!
You will not be disappointed here.
