“Even better than expected!”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just had a fabulous short stay in this wonderful house which literally made us say Wow when we walked in. A beautiful and thoughtfully designed house which made us want to come back home every evening to be in it! Everything was immaculately clean and beautifully presented. Restful neutrals and interesting books and art complete the pleasure. Also small supplies like washing up liquid, salt, herbs, oils were left for our use which was so useful.
Perfect location and helpful owner. We feel privileged to have experienced this place. Really hope we can come back sometime and discover more of Iceland.

“Perfect location! Minutes from all Gold Circle attractions! Great for any family!”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have stayed at many vacation rentals and I would say this ranks as one of the best. It met or exceeded every expectation. When we schedule our next trip to Iceland, we will schedule it around our ability to stay at the Riverfront Cottage. I can't speak more highly of this accommodation and the support we received from Sigridur. We were within minutes of all Gold Circle attractions and a short drive from several grocery stores. The kitchen is well equipped. We "ate-in" and cooked several meals at the cottage - avoiding the price of restaurants. The river and waterfall Dynjandi were breath taking and a short hike from the front door of the cottage. My wife and I occupied the one-bedroom guest house while our adult children and their spouses stayed in the cottage. Great arrangement to give each couple space and privacy. Staying at the Riverfront Cottage will be one of many great experiences and memories we will take away from Iceland.

“Home from home”
Reviewed November 7, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

If you're looking for somewhere to stay while you explore this great island then don't hesitate, book Riverfront cottage. Modern,warm,spacious home from home. We could have stayed in all week we loved it so much. Great location and after a full day exploring to come home to such a lovely place helped make the holiday. Seven of us stayed and not once did we feel on top of one another. The owner is very welcoming and did his best to make sure that not only did we enjoy our stay in the cottage but suggested places of interest and advice in seeing the northern lights. We saw them 4 nights two of which were in the skies above the cottage. Great holiday. We will be back here that's for sure. Thanks Sigridur.

Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Beautiful home that was just as advertised. We stayed here with our 10 and 13 year old. Owners were extremely helpful with the renting process and with information of local sights. Comfortable home in an excellent location. Our family was sad to leave.

“Built to take advantage of the beautiful scenery”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Dynjandi House from October 24th to 29th. The house is about an hour and a half drive from Keflavik Airport, which puts you in the heart of the Golden Circle. The setting of the house is wonderful, with long ranging views over a river and fields to the mountains all around. Even though it is convenient to many attractions (such as Geysir and Gullfoss), you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere. Although there are a scattering of other houses nearby, Dynjandi house has been well positioned so you don’t really see them as you gaze out at the view. The house is a very short walk from the impressive Dynjandi Falls, thus the name.

The house itself has been built to take advantage of the beautiful scenery. The modern architecture features huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the breathtaking outdoors. A deck winds around the whole house, perfect for hanging out in the nice weather, and the hot tub on one corner of the deck is a good way to enjoy the view even when the weather is not so nice.

The house has a well-equipped kitchen and a very large dining table. There are places to dine out within a reasonable distance from the house (be sure to try Mika’s) but you will have no trouble cooking gourmet meals here if you choose to.

There are plenty of comfortable sofas on which to lounge and the floor heating in the house kept us comfy and cozy. The owners have even provided some books and games if you want to stay in. We felt like hanging around in Dynjandi House was as much a part of experiencing Iceland as sightseeing.

When we had questions, our hosts were quick to reply. If you’d rather not stay in Reykjavik and want to feel as though you are in the real Iceland, I highly recommend it!

Dear Wendy,
Thank you for your lovely review.
It is great to know that you had a wonderful experience while staying with us.
Absolutely ? the location is unbeatable and just perfect and at the same time quiet and hidden away. This location of the house was carefully chosen to provide gorgeous mountain and river view. It is centrally located to an array of cultural, tourist attractions and recreational opportunities. I am pleased that you like it.

Once again thank you for your lovely comments
