5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in December 2014

We had a group of 7 stay comfortably in this gorgeous cottage. The location is perfect to see sites such as Geysir and Gullfoss and the drive to Reykjavik is stunning. We saw the northern lights twice on our visit. Thankyou Haukar and Anna Lisa for the use of your lovely cottage. more
