“Amazing location, beautiful views, warm and clean.”
Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage is perfect, really warm and clean with amazing views, Brynja and her husband are really welcoming and helpful.
Seals basking on the rocks just 150m away, it's like having your own personal beach.
Highly recommended, a great time was had by the whole family.

“Memorable stay, way too short!”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Tranquil, private setting with incredible views! Cottage exceeded expectations. Owners were knowledgeable, attentive, and caring! Attractively decorated and furnished, spotlessly clean.

“Great place to relax and set off for great trips on Iceland”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

They are only three cottages. We stood in a small one for 2 (max. 4) people. It has fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room with futon sofa (here can sleep two more people). On terrase is great hot tub where we put every day hot thermal water (temperature you can regulate) and gas grill. Excellent view on the bay and mountains. Free wifi is there as well. It gives you great privacy, relax and enjoyable view. Also small enjoyable walk to the shore before /after dinner is great. You can buy staff in the nearby grocery in Akranes as well as in a liqueur shop wine. You will find all relevant info on the table, however, Ms. Brynja, the owner, is ready to advise you any time. It is suitable place for one day trips (such as Golden Circle, Reykjavik - only ca 1 hour away, Borgarnes etc.). At the end of June and beg. of July we were really lucky for the weather. Recommending you to make early booking since all the cottages are quite busy during season.

“Lovely, Little Cottage”
Reviewed May 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed in this cottage for a week with my boyfriend when we came to Iceland on vacation. It suited our needs perfectly; it was clean, well-maintained, and had everything necessary. We spent the week taking day trips around the country (about 3,000 km in total) and I can definitely say, this was a great location. It is quiet, the view is incredible, horses in your backyard, and the owners were very helpful. If you like hiking even a little, definitely go to Glymur Falls (about 20 min away). Enjoy!
