We had an amazing stay at this cottage. Right in the middle of the golden circle it was really easy to get everywhere we wanted to go to. Great to have the hot tub outside we used it a few nights and really loved it. We had all we needed in the way of kitchen equipment. Coffee ma…

Response from Hrafn:
Thanks for the great and positive review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay you were great guests, However I would like to clarify few things to correct any misunderstanding for our future guests specially families with young children, First the bathrooms, the property is of course advertised with 1 bathroom which is located in the middle floor which is almost in the center between the bedrooms we have often been there 6 and so many times over the past years we have had 6 guests and it has never been a problem that I know of so far thankfully. Has just worked out fine for everyone if this would have been a problem we would have looked at solutions for that earlier. Now the second is that you don't recommend our house for Children/babies that is far away from our understanding and reality in fact probably around 65-75 % of our guests are families has worked out great for everyone like the earlier reviews show we have one 5 year old girl and everything is bullet proof for babies and children as a parent we know how to keep the place solid for babies so therefore I cant understand that comment. the the stairs are imported from Denmark solid built for homes no sharp edges at all, the floors are just normal parquet and tiles in the main entrance no harm in that. Sink in bathroom is a slightly higher then normally that is correct but has worked out just fine. However we are always open for comments on what we can do better we like to keep this place as perfect as possible we love staying there and our little 5 year old does to so we would of course like to keep on continuing to welcome other families to enjoy to. You are always welcome back who knows next time we might have put a little sofa on the main floor. :) Best wishes Hrafn & Þórunn

We had a wonderful stay at this house. Hrafn sent very detailed instructions on how to find the place and lots of ideas of places to visit nearby. The house is easy to spot from the road (however it might be difficult to find if arriving at night). We met Hrafn at the house and …

We have just returned from a wonderful four-night stay in Hrafn’s wonderful home. The weather was very snowy when we arrived and because it was so deep we parked at the bottom of the hill where the house is and walked up but that was no problem. Hrafn was there to greet us and sp…

This location is stunning. Looking out over the lake with a brilliant view from up top of the hill. The cottage is remote enough to get away from the light pollution but easy enough to get to as only just over an hour from Reykjavík. Right on the bottom of the National Park. The …

What an amazing and serene place! We've had a fantastic few days from this cottage. It's brilliantly located for the Golden Circle, and for connecting to Reykjavik or towards Vik. The host Hrafn was very communicative and their helpful advice was much appreciated. We were mad…
