This place was amazing - Thorsteinn was a great host who helped us with everything. He even came all the way to the cabin when we needed help with something. The hot tub was phenomenal and we had an amazing night. Highly recommended!

Excellent place, can't recommend this place highly enough. Perfect location for Geysir and Gulfoss, and reasonable location to see many others things in South/central Iceland. Very warm, very comfortable, wonderful views. Thank you for a great stay!

HOT TUB! A quiet cosy place with all you that you need and a great access point to the Geysir and Waterfall just 10 & 20 minutes away respectively!

Nice cabin, wonderful hot tub and great host. It was very easy to communicate with the host prior to and during our stay. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and he let us check in early (we were lucky that the cabin was not rented out the day before). We were able to take a nap then start our visit of Iceland. Thank you again Thorsteinn, we enjoyed our stay very much.
