“A cosy cottage in idyllic settings”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I stayed for 5 days with my partner in one of these cottages. We had everything we needed to cook and were very comfortable. The hosts were very helpful and friendly, especially their dog who greeted us every morning! We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights in all their glory on not one but two nights, which more than made up for the lack of seals at this time of year. The location is great to get a view of the night sky without the glare of the city of Reykjavik and meant we were close to many beautiful landscapes. Already planning a return visit.

“Lovely cottage on the fjord”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed here alone for two weeks, doing some writing and just escaping from the world. The cottage has everything you need and the hot tub is fantastic. There is no wifi, but there is cellphone coverage. The walk nearby to Glymur waterfall is great, challenging in parts but anyone reasonably fit could do it, and it's really worth the effort. Ask your hosts if you want to see a whale being butchered at the nearby whaling station. It's not for everyone but it's certainly a unique experience.
