what our guests say about us


First night in Iceland

I stayed in cottage 1 and it had all you needed for a great first night. Everything really clear and easy to get to from the airport, no more then 10min with car.

Wished the cottage was preheated because it took some time before it was heated. Other then that very good communication and a it was a pleasant start of my journey in Iceland.

Fancy a wild-scenery, remote and romantic stay in cute cottage in Iceland?

Very close to Keflavik airport when you rent and travel by car, free parking, free WiFi, excellent kitchen and dining space in a main cottage.Very clean and comfortable cottage and shower facilities. Easy to follow check in instruction received by e-mail.

Would stay again next year.

Short stay in Iceland

Amazing experience in these little homes! Such a cute place and darling looking! We absolutely loved everything. I loved how clean they were and its nice to know they are family own which makes it that more personal.

Unique place to stay

I stayed here on my final night due to close proximity to the airport. The check-in process was more like an airbnb. You call a number posted on the door and a combo is given to you for one of lockboxes on the wall. I was assigned guest house #1. The place was great! It had it’s own bathroom and the room was spacious. The place definitely exceeded my expectations. Keep in mind the place is far from Reykjavik. It’s conveniently located to the airport and Blue Lagoon.
