Björk - A cozy hilltop cottage - Great location!

Adults-only cottage with outdoor pool and spa tub
A cozy and comfortable, well equipped private cottage located right in the Golden Circle about 5 minutes from the famous Geysir. A perfect location to have a base for relaxing after travelling around nearby attractions which include all attractions on the Golden Circle, the South Coast of Iceland and it is also very close to the amazing Icelandic highlands.
A perfect getaway to unwind in the countryside in a magical area. Cuddle up by the fireplace or relax in the hot tub on the terrace.

Our cozy cottage sits nicely in the mountainside on an elevation surrounded by Icelandic birch trees. It is in good distance from neighboring houses and is very private with a locked gate to get into the area. It is a perfect place for a romantic getaway and also very family friendly.
The whole house has geothermal heating in radiators in the cottage. There is a nice open space with a comfortable living area with a smart TV, fireplace, a country style kitchen with a refrigerator, a stove, an oven and a microwave. A good dining area with an adjustable table and seats for six people. A cozy loft suite with a king size Tempur bed and a bedroom with a bunk bed on the ground floor, a bathroom with a toilet in the cottage and a separate shower room in a cabin on the terrace. A very comfortable private hot tub is on the terrace.

Our cottage is about a 1.5 hour drive from Reykjavik. It is a great location to be based in when travelling around both the Golden Circle and the South Coast of Iceland.
The area right by the cottage has a lot to offer. You will find a restaurant/bar that is open all year round called Réttin. There is also a petrol station right by the restaurant. The cottage is within good distance of the restaurant so you will not be bothered by it.
In the summertime the area also offers a swimming pool, info center, 9 hole golf course, horse back riding tours and a small shop.

In the wintertime it can snow a lot in the area since the cottage is pretty high up in the mountain. The use of a 4x4 vehicle is recommended in the wintertime.
Guest accommodations at this cottage offer private spa tubs and fireplaces. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers and hair dryers.

Guests can surf the web using the complimentary wireless Internet access. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms.

Secluded Romantic Getaway
We absolutely loved our romantic stay in this secluded cabin! It has lovely interior and exterior spaces, and the geothermically heated water in the hot tub was amazing and relaxing!

5/5 Excellent

Our first Iceland adventure
We loved our stay at the Bjork cottage! It’s location provided the perfect base of our adventures around the Golden Circle, Highlands, and South Coast destinations. And the cottage itself is as lovely as the pictures, if not more so. Clean and comfortable, it was a wonderful place to settle down and enjoy some dinner while looking at our pictures from the day. Thank you so much Gigi for your hospitality!

5/5 Excellent

Would stay again!
We had the most wonderful stay in Gigi's cabin. It was quant, cozy, and perfect for northern light watching. Gigi was a very attentive host who went out of her way to make things perfect. Anybody would be lucky to stay there.

5/5 Excellent

Bjork is the perfect location for discovering Iceland
My husband and I ended up loving this cozy cottage even more than we did when I booked it online! Gigi is a wonderful owner and even includes a book on how to navigate the area. I can't recommend this rental enough! We particularly loved soaking in the hot tub while looking at the Northern Lights. We'd love to come back and stay so we can visit more of the country!
