Hello We stayed 3 night in this place. It is very quiet and charming. It is well located to visit main attraction "golden circle" There is a city nearby so you can do food shopping. The only downside is the beds setting: one bedroom with two single beds and one bedroom with a L shape and for 2 teenager maximum....

My wife and I stayed at this quaint cottage in March/April for 3 nights. Communication with the owners before and throughout our stay was superb. Even whilst they were on their own holiday out of the country during our stay we had no problem in exchanging emails. The location of the cottage was perfectly situated far enough out of Reykjavik...

The cottage was very nice, situation was ideal for visiting, the owners left very good instructions on everything in the house and of things to visit, The wardrobe space was very little to none, and there was no ventilation fan in the kitchen,
