Small cottage in south of Iceland. Only 30 minute drive to many of the most amazing nature resorts on Iceland such as Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir.

Built to be a family guest house but has taken the role of being some-sort of a romantic get-away for newly weds and people celebrating wedding anniversaries....Funny how things change :D

The house includes; Bed, sofa bed, kitchen tools, 4G wireless internet, hot tub and much more(see pics)

The space

Small house surrounded with nature. Built in 2013-14. Very nice and cozy place.
The house comes with one bed (90x200cm) and a sleeping couch (140x204cm). There is a bathroom with shower, small kitchen area where our guests can cook a warm meal and enjoy a cop of coffee. Guest have access to big terrace with great Jacuzzi. Bath robes, slippers, towels and bed linen are all included in the price.

If you are looking for a bigger house we just recently bought another house in the same area (1 minute drive from this one):

So if you are 4-8 people traveling together you can have two houses that are very close to each other.

Interaction with guests

People want privacy and we respect that. The owners of this house have a summer house next to this one ( 50 meters away) and are there on weekends. So if there will be any questions while staying at our place you are welcome to drop by and ask.

Other things to note

There is a 4G internet available but no TV. We belief that you wont need a TV in this place as you have the nature all around you to look at :)

This place is really a gem, reachable within an hour from Reykjavik and close to many of the big sights on the Golden Triangle. Such a nice touch to give us some Icelandic chocolate. The hot tub was, of course, very comfortable and welcoming after a long day with hikes in the countryside. I warmly recommend Throstur's place to all the AirBnb community!

We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely guesthouse. Thank you for being so responsive regarding access and parking etc. The house was in the perfect setting, exactly as in the photos, and hot tub was an added bonus! The perfect access point to see Southern Iceland. Would recommend. Thank you!

The cottage was great. Perfect for couples and relaxing. Elsa left us chocolates and was very kind to show us the cottage and all its features. She was extremely accommodating with check-in as well. Hopefully we will be back! Additionally, it was well located next to the National Park.

Throstur's place was wonderful! It's small as the description says but has everything you need- well stocked kitchen, very versatile space. Hot tub is fantastic. His mother was very helpful in getting us set up. They recently bought a very comfortable mattress cover so the bed is actually awesome. Slept very well. Recommended!

Couldn't be happier about our stay at Throstur's place. Elsa, his mother, offered the warmest of greetings upon our arrival and we felt comfortable from the start. The cabin is super cozy, clean and the best part was of course the hot tub. At the very least, Iceland will be a mini adventure where you'll live out your fantasies of a simpler and more beautiful time in history. What does that entail? Long walks, drives, energy and time. Therefore, an outdoor hot tub underneath the Icelandic sky was an amazing way to come home and reflect on the day while letting your body recover. Another thing to note is that the location is perfect. One way or another, all the things you'll want to see and do is always gonna be a trek, but this centralized locations cuts travel times so that you can do more in one day. That was huge cause we were only visiting for a few days. Lastly, my boyfriend and I loved the complimentary hot chocolate :) If we can offer any bit of constructive feedback, it would be that the sheets have a little wear and tear and that the bathroom sink is a bit small. Otherwise, this home is a small gem.

The cottages belong to my parents, as they are completely beginners when it comes to computers and internet I decided to take care of everything regarding Airbnb :)

So at your stay in Iceland you most likely won´t be meeting me in person as I live in Denmark... but no worries, my parents are great people and will do their best to make your stay awesome.

We have two houses for rent and they are within 5-10 minute walk from each other, so if you are a bigger group, then there is an opportunity to rent them both out.
