AUTHENTIC Icelandic Family Cabin...
AMAZING LOCATION and truly...
BREATHTAKING VIEWS...

This homey, cozy cabin is amazingly well situated and close to many of the major sights; Geysir, Thingvellir, Gullfoss and more. The cabin is somewhat secluded, and it is a comfy and charming space for putting your feet up and relaxing with a breathtaking view over Laugarvatn lake and the mountains.
A perfect hub for a smaller intimate group of 2-6 people but fits 8 easy.

The space
Three bedrooms on the main floor, two with double beds (king and full) and one with a single bed.
A sleeping loft above with a double bed as well as a single bed plus mattresses for up to four people if needed.
The cabin has a small living room with a large corner sofa, small kitchen with stove but no oven, microwave and fridge in cabin's pantry, dining nook for 4-8 people and cabin has chairs for 12 people.
Rather big deck on two levels. Lower deck has a hot tub and benches for outside dining for up to 10 people.
Upper deck has patio furniture for lounge seating for up to 7 people, more chairs can be added and also lounge chairs that are at the cabin. An old, but usable BBQ is also available on the lower deck.

The location is amazingly convenient in South of Iceland, about 1 hour and 15 minute drive from Reykjavik. The cabin is really close to all the major places in South of Iceland, Geysir, Thingvellir, Gullfoss etc.
We do not promise an overly fancy or luxurious cabin but a truly quaint, comfy and cozy cottage that we absolutely love to visit to relax and put our feet up, re-energize and enjoy quality time.

This is an authentic Icelandic family cabin and not a tourist made destination :)
May this charming cottage also be your comfy, safe haven while you enjoy the Golden Circle and the many more amazingly beautiful places South of Iceland has to offer.

Where you’ll be

Laugarvatn, South, Iceland

The location is as convenient as can be. The cabin is secluded yet it's only a 7 minute drive to Laugarvatn, which has the beautiful and popular Fontana pool/spa and a grocery store if you need anything plus a couple of restaurants.
You have just a 25 minute drive to get to Geysir, and 10 more minutes to get to Gullfoss.
Selfoss is only 30 minutes away in one direction and there you can find a discount grocery store and anything else you may need. It is the biggest town in the South of Iceland.
Thingvellir, our National Park and local treasure is just 35 minutes away from the cabin.
It may not be a national treasure but the Borg pool (affordable and nice for a bath, and with a great kiddie slide) is just 15 minutes away from the cabin. If there are many people in the cabin it is often better to simply drive there for a bath than for many to wait in line for the one tiny bathroom that is in the cabin :)

Hello, I'm Maja and my family and I love the AirBnB concept of traveling when we go on vacations. I am assisting my in-laws (Soffia and Siggy) in renting out their cabin which I and my family also use as our own. It is in an amazingly convenient location in South of Iceland, right by Laugarvatn town, about 1 hour drive from Reykjavik. The cabin is really close to all the major sights in South of Iceland, basically in the smack middle of the famous Golden Circle; Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir which are all about 20-30 minutes away by car. The view from the cabin is beautiful in any season and it is a wonderful place to relax and experience authentic, Icelandic cottage life. I do not promise an overly fancy or luxurious cabin but a truly quaint, comfy and cozy cottage that we absolutely love to visit to relax and put our feet up and spend quality time together, and we enjoy being able to share that experience with others. May this charming cottage also be your comfy, safe heaven while you enjoy the Golden Circle and the many more amazingly beautiful places South of Iceland has to offer.

During your stay

We are available by phone to assist you with anything you may need, and will of course come by in cases of emergencies.

We can meet you to hand you the keys when you come to Iceland or we will find another way to get the keys to you. We will only rarely meet people at the cabin itself, mostly if we happen to ourselves be leaving the cabin around the same time you arrive :) There is a lockbox option for getting the keys but it requires some instructions :)
