Sweet little spot with beautiful summer sunset
This property was just what we had expected but with a beautiful sunset as a bonus. Quiet, easy to find, all the amenities we needed.

Perfect location for natural beauty!
We loved staying here and would absolutely recommend for a couple. We could make breakfast there and have snacks stored in the fridge for a lunch on the road. We would HIGHLY recommend Krisp for dinner in Selfoss and the pub nearby. Petra was fabulous! We even got to see the Northern Lights briefly from the north-facing windows on our last night.

Perfect little cottage
I booked this place for my dad and sister to quarantine in leading up to my wedding in Iceland. Petra stocked the house with groceries for them and was very accommodating in so many ways. My family loved their stay and walking around the property to visit the horses.

Great cozy place; great host; great locale
Really a special little place. Scenic and peaceful, with animals all around, a view of a mountain, and great Icelandic atmosphere. Close to Selfoss, but far enough away to avoid tourist traffic. Petra the host was super helpful and kind. Definitely recommend for one or two (very familiar) people.

Loved it
We stayed here over Christmas and it was a magical experience. The location is ideal: a short drive from Selfoss but "in the middle of nowhere". 360 degree views that go in forever. Very peaceful. The cottage was all we had hoped for: super clean, cozy and warm. The Christmas lights were nice! Petra was very helpful and communicative. Would stay here again any time.
