These cottages are very small, but ours (#7) was comfortable for two people. It wasn't as clean as one would hope. (This may be due to the fact that customers can choose to clean on their own.) The hot tubs had debris in them, our kitchen was dirty, etc. But we would totally stay here again because the location and...

Easy to find - fantastic place for a bit of tranquility. Small cabins were well equipped and cosy, hot tub was great, BBQs provided, very peaceful and stunning views. There is a Netto supermarket just down the road on the way into Husavik. Value is ok for Iceland and you can get breakfast but as we found prices everywhere high...

These cottages are so incredibly charming with the most amazing view. Each cabin has a little deck that looks out over a little lake, the sea and a beautiful mountain range. The cabins are small but comfortable; ideal for 2 people, or 2 adults and a child. And did I mention the view? There are even little cedar hot-pots to...

Guesthouses and cottages in Iceland are mostly beautiful but this was exceptional, and the best we've experienced, in our whole trip last July! Every cottage is exclusively designed by the owner's collection from her travels around the world and we stayed in one with an African theme! The cottage was very clean and neat, spacious and self-sufficient. There was even...

I spent two days with my husband at this perfect location. I've traveled the world, and this cabin stay stood out as one of the best! We had a hot tub outside and whale watching boats were only 2 miles away.

The grounds are absolutely stunning, and nice for a stroll. The 3 person cabins are nice.( wouldn't recommend 3 persons, max.2) and clean!. Kitchen is wel equipped, living is good only the couch is way too big in the room, therefore less space, store of luggage was difficult. Bedroom is small, bed was not very comfortable , matras was rundown....

These Cottages is located 2 minutes by car from the city Center of Husavik. It's a very typical hotel, where every single room is an independent cottage with own kitchen, bathroom, small living room and bedroom. The sorroundings are simply amazing, You can feel the real icelandic spirit and the landscape takes your breath away. The cottages are very clean....
