“Perfect Backdrop to a Magical Week”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here for about 4 days with my girlfriend (now fiancée) in September/2015. Even now I think about how amazing and perfect everything was, especially the cottage and Rosa's (the owner) warm and kind hospitality.

The only reason why my trip was as great as it was, was because of this beautiful, cozy, and charming cottage. The cottage was simply perfect. It was clean and had everything you needed. The kitchen was modern and it was so nice to be able to cook romantic dinners by the fireplace, with candles and champagne. It would be the perfect setting to virtually any occasion and suitable for anybody - whether it's a romantic partner, friends, or family. It was also really nice that it was separated from the nearby town (Selfoss), kind of in its own area, and you had lots of places nearby to see.

When we got there, I was very impressed by how professional, friendly, and welcoming Rosa was - it honestly felt like we could ask her for anything at anytime. This was a truly comforting thing to know especially since it was my first time traveling to Europe. Her kindness and warmth immediately made me forget about the common anxiety and stress that is associated with traveling (i.e. the costs, planning, etc.). The day we came to the cottage, I knew that this would be a perfect and memorable trip - and I was right. Rosa was very helpful and made us feel stress-free. It was so nice to have all of the information and recommendations we needed (i.e. suggestions on where to shop, where to visit, where to eat). All you need is food and drink - everything else is provided in the cottage.

Not only was I able to give my girlfriend a perfect birthday celebration - but I also proposed to her (successfully). Without the intention of sounding sensational - I can honestly say that it was indeed the best vacation ever. I will definitely be coming back and I highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is traveling to Iceland. I would also recommend using a diesel car for those who plan on doing a lot of driving.

Thank you Rosa!

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage is just as it looks in the pictures - beautiful, cosy, and exceptionally well equipped. It felt completely brand new and is fantastic value for money. The cottage is only 15 mins from Selfos so near to the supermarket, and so many main attractions are accessible from here though do not book without also hiring a car. Rosa is just lovely and so helpful, welcoming and organised. We'd recommend the cottage without hesitation and would come again if we were to return to Iceland.
