These cottages are so incredibly charming with the most amazing view. Each cabin has a little deck that looks out over a little lake, the sea and a beautiful mountain range. The cabins are small but comfortable; ideal for 2 people, or 2 adults and a child. And did I mention the view? There are even little cedar hot-pots to...

Guesthouses and cottages in Iceland are mostly beautiful but this was exceptional, and the best we've experienced, in our whole trip last July! Every cottage is exclusively designed by the owner's collection from her travels around the world and we stayed in one with an African theme! The cottage was very clean and neat, spacious and self-sufficient. There was even...

I spent two days with my husband at this perfect location. I've traveled the world, and this cabin stay stood out as one of the best! We had a hot tub outside and whale watching boats were only 2 miles away.

The grounds are absolutely stunning, and nice for a stroll. The 3 person cabins are nice.( wouldn't recommend 3 persons, max.2) and clean!. Kitchen is wel equipped, living is good only the couch is way too big in the room, therefore less space, store of luggage was difficult. Bedroom is small, bed was not very comfortable , matras was rundown....

These Cottages is located 2 minutes by car from the city Center of Husavik. It's a very typical hotel, where every single room is an independent cottage with own kitchen, bathroom, small living room and bedroom. The sorroundings are simply amazing, You can feel the real icelandic spirit and the landscape takes your breath away. The cottages are very clean....

Thi cottage had a great view. That's the only thing positive. This cottage is so very tiny. If you sit on the toilet your legs are stuck between the sink. Really there is no space left. I'm 1.78 cm so avarage lenght but it is too small for me. The shower is dangerous. Because it is sooooo very small you...

We stayed at the cottage for one night during our travels around the ring road. We were handed the keys at the reception by a very curt woman - we smiled and tried to be friendly - but nope. Thankfully that was the first and last time we had to deal with her. We had cottage no.17 which was a...

The cottages are cute, but if there are two of you, they are really small. No room to put your luggage, and one of you will have to crawl over the other one if you have to get up at night and have to get up. The location is lovely and they are very clean, although you have to pay...

We stayed three nights and used our cabin (number 9) as a base for exploring Myvatn, the Highlands and the northeast coast. Here's the practical part: the cabins are small, but very cosy and very private. You can hear traffic on the main road during the day, but there's no traffic at night! Husavik restaurants are a 2.8 km walk...
