I booked this cottage without doing much research on the area etc. I saw it was rural with great character and views so I booked it. My new wife and I arrived in the middle of the night in the wet and wind having hired a car (essential, preferably a 4x4). The outside lights were left on so we could...

Booked the cottage for 4 nights as a surprise 50th birthday present for my wife which followed 3 nights in the capital. My wife had always wanted to visit Iceland and it didn't dissappoint. We arrived early and met one of the three sisters(who's name I can't remember oops) who was so lovely. Her boyfriend presented us with Easter eggs...

About the neighborhood
There's great view over Hvítá River from the cabin and short distance to all major nature pearls in South Iceland: Gullfoss and Geysir, Thingvellir, Kerið, Sólheimar, Laugarvatn Village, Skálholt, Arnarker, Landmannalaugar, Skógafoss, Háifoss, Thjórsárdalur, Jökulsárlón and Reykholt, Baula, Hraunfossar and Paradísarlaut in Borgarfjörður, and Keilir and Blóa Lónið on Reykjanes. The cabin is perfect for day trips to these locations, as well as to Reykjavík, since it is so conveniently located only an hour's drive from the capital.

The new swimming pool at Borg is extremely good for a country-side pool. It has small warm pots for children, play area and swimming area, and geothermical hot water, of course, which is standard for Iceland.
Getting around
You will need a car to get to our cabin and we recommend a 4x4 during the winter season. It may not snow in Iceland during the winter, but it can. Thus, it is better to be safe than sorry.

Due to a contract we have with a rental car agency, we can offer a coupon that gives you a 5% discount in their rates. They otherwise offer a 15% discount if prepaid upon booking.
