“Aptly named”
Reviewed July 21, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Warm welcome on arrival from hosts. Cosy cottage was amazing. Clean, spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The outlook was breath-taking and we were in a prime location for the Golden circle. Would recommend this to anyone travelling here. Thank you Bryda and Ben.

“A nice quiet cabin”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We enjoyed our stay in our quiet cozy cabin. The cabin was clean and nicely appointed (linens are extra if you do not bring any). The kitchen had what we needed to make dinner. A note for parents with little ones, the cabin is small and with only one bedroom it could be difficult to fit a portable crib. We had a wonderful time in the area.

“Great cottage for 3; Terrific info re outdoor activities”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Cozy cottage was perfect for me and two teenagers even with miserable (well, more miserable than usual) weather. Good walks from the cottage and Bryna gave us tons of great advice and info about places to hike etc off the beaten path. There are staples (oil, salt..) that make cooking easy. Hot tub fills with, and house is heated by, geo-thermal water - cool!

“Brilliant Cottage”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Clean, tidy, cosy, well located and well maintained and a credit to the owners. Only regret I have is not being able to thank them in person as they were not available as we left. So can I take this opportunity to say thank you so much for renting your property to us and we will definitely be back.

“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.
