Holt is warm and comfortable. It is just minutes away from Geysir and Gullfoss, both beautiful, must-see places in the area.
The owner, Jon, had recommended Friðheimar, the greenhouse restaurant nearby. We had a delicious and informative meal there. We also visited Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths, which was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
The view from the cabin is nice and the whole cottage is always warm thanks to the geothermal floor heating. Even when there is snow and sleet outside, Holt is a welcome place to return to after a day of sightseeing.
Holt was a fantastic place to spend a few days in February. The place it kept in tip-top condition by the owner (Jon Baldur) who could not have been more helpful by email before our visit. The view from the living room was fantastic and the geothermal hot tub with its sulphur-smelling outdoor shower were unforgettable.
Holt is the perfect base to visit the popular Golden Circle locations of Gullfoss, Strokkur, Secret Lagoon, Kerið etc. All within 20-30 mins - saving a huge amount of driving time. Absolutely loved it!!!
We had a great 3 nights stay in this cabin. Fantastic views across the southern parts of Iceland. The inside is cute and cosy with everything you would ever need for a great stay on Iceland! Jón the owner was terrific and couldn't do enough for us.
Highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to see the sights in the southern part of Iceland as you can drive to the major attractions and back in a day easy.
Friends and I shared this property for a few days. The owner is the most accommodating and helpful landlord we have come across. Everything we could have hoped for was considered for our stay. The property had plenty of space for couples sharing or a large family. It is in beautiful countryside of Iceland bang in the middle of many attractions. We will use again for sure!
We stayed at the rental house Holt during our round trip through Iceland for a couple of days, mid of August this year.
The cottage is very well equipped, even a dish washer is available. The house is located on a small hill, very quiet with an amazing view, e.g. volcano Hekla or several glaciers can be spotted on the horizon. Wifi was well functioning. Weber gas-grill was also available, which allowed us to have an amazing bbq for dinner.
Hot tub was easy to use and I already miss the relaxing sun downer while enjoying the hot tub and great view.
Very nice contact to owner Jon Baldur. Replied to all inquiries within a very short time.
We also stayed at a second house from him (Brekka), really can recommend the roof n' route concept developed by nordic lodges.
Location: We did day trips to Gullfoss, Geysir, Landmannalaugar and Torsmörk (recommend 4x4). If you start your trips not too late, you will be nearly alone at Geysir and Gullfoss - we made some perfect shots without any other tourists ruining the pictures. Geysir for example was just minutes away by car.
