These cabins are delightful. They are located in a quiet street in Hveragerdi and are comfortable and nicely presented. there is one bedroom with a queen bed and a single bunk bed on top of this. the kitchen is good apart from the absence of a microwave, which would have been very handy for quick meals. The owner, Eva, is very helpful and friendly. There is a laundry room that you can use and a hot tub and a sauna. Very good value for Iceland.
We stayed at the turquoise cabin for three nights, we were supposed to stay there for two but added a night because it was so beautiful and special. The outdoor area with hot tub and sauna was absolute magic. Both cabins are freshly built so things are as clean as possible. I cannot imagine anyone being anything less than ecstatic with their stay here. Hveragerði is a small town only a 40 minute drive from Reykjavík, it is a part of the golden circle, easily my favorite part. They have great geothermal pools and even natural ones you can hike up to. Everything is walking distance, local supermarket, bakery, restaurants. We loved our stay here, it restored our senses! Thank you Marteinn and Eva, you were great hosts and your backyard village is perfect
What a fantastic place. My two days stay in The Backyard Village was absolutely amazing. The hosts are two of the nicest people you could possibly meet and after a long day there's really nothing quite like making use of the sauna and hot tub to get you ready for the next day and I made full use of that. I can't really think of anything that could be added to these cottages, they had everything I required and more. It's a wonderful, peaceful place to stay and boy how I needed that relaxing atmosphere. Thank you Marteinn and Eva for these wonderful 2 days. I will most definitely be back.
