This little red house with a guesthouse is located south/east of Reykjavík 99 km. It's a very a quiet area only two other houses nearby, belonging to adjacent properties.

The view is magnificent, Thjórsá (the longest river in Iceland) and the volcano Hekla is right out of your window and just beautiful nature all around.
In the house we have a combined kitchen with the living room, and two bedrooms, one double and the other one single. In the guesthouse is a double bed. In the main house there is one bathroom with a shower.

Outside is a hot tub. It is very nice to go in the hot tub, take a deep breath and take a look at the beautiful surrounding nature.
Nearby ca. 3 min. drive is a mini market, a restaurant and a swinning pool.

Flúðir is a small village it is 21 km away, there you can find a supermarket, a liquor store and a swimming pool.

Laugarás (20 km) is known for the green houses, where you can buy fresh vegetables, spices and organic eggs, and in the summertime there is a kind of a zoo (Slakki) where you can see Icelandic animals and the children can pet with cute kittens and puppies!

Skálholt is a historical place and it takes 23 km to drive. Classical conserts often take place in the church in sommertime.

The Golden Circle attractions Gullfoss/Geysir (including Thingvellir) is about 46 km away, is an ideal day trip possible to enjoy outside office hours.

Stöng in Thjórsárdalur is about 20 min.drive. Stöng was built in 1974 and is a reconstruction of a medieval house (a.d. 930 -1262) and it is very interesting to take a look at that.

There are also many horse rentals nearby!

We spet three days in this lovely cottage, on our 16 days iceland circle tour. We rented/used quiet a few cottages
and "Our Little Red Cabin" is simply the best. The location of the cottage is very good for exploring Golden Circle sights and Landmanalaugar. Once again many thanks to landlord/lady.

the little red cabin was just perfect for our stay in Iceland. Centrally located and so quiet! And of course: the hot tub made it just perfect!

A wonderfully situated little cabin with space and tranquility its best assets. Other than the fact that my daughter and I were not willing to try to switch the hot water so that the shower was warm, every else was so pleasant. The hot tub was wonderful to soak in at days end, to help with aches from hiking or traveling. And Hekla was always close by and the mighty river Thorsa flowing by. Excellent.

House is all that we needed during the stay in the area. Nice hot tube in the back (never figure it out how to change hot water for shower), great for relaxing.
House was also equipped with most of the things, and small stuff in the kitchen.

Highly recommended if you are thinking of staying in the area.

The cabin is beautifully located on the shore of a river and the hot tub was a special treate after a long hike
