The highlight of staying here, hands down, is that each unit has its own hot tub. From this hot tub, there is a beautiful panoramic view of the ocean, mountains, and in the distance you can see Snæfellsjökull Glacier perched up in the mountains. We brought a bottle of wine that we enjoyed in the tub. (NOTE: you can only buy alcohol in Iceland in regulated stores located in major cities so this takes some planning)
The room had the feel of a ski condo. There were three rooms in our unit with everyone sharing a central bath, kitchen, and living room. The bathroom is very small with no counter space.
Our unit was full and it appeared from the parking and hot tub activity that the owners had attempted to fill the rooms of each unit before opening a new one, so you will likely have condo-mates.
The units are all in a locker-row line, there are partitions on the patios between the units providing privacy.
Check-in was restrictive. It was in a little office hut and only open for a certain period each afternoon.
Note it's a long drive to the closest restaurant or gas station, so plan dinner and breakfast accordingly.
