This is a perfect place to stay if you don't want to stay in the city and want to explore the countryside near the golden circle! I stayed with my husband and 2 adult children, but would be great for several couples or a family with younger children also. Kristinn was a great host and easy to reach if .you had any questions. When we booked he sent us a booklet with lots of great information about restaurants and things to do in the area, along with directions and time estimates for driving. The cottage is very close to Gulfoss falls, Geysir, Kerið and Þingvellir national park. The falls are amazing and we really enjoyed walking around the Kerið crater lake. We were able to do a hike on the Solheimajokull glacier (which was awesome) and we really loved the black sand beach near Vic.
As for the cottage itself it is everything you could want in a vacation home. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a small but usable kitchen, we loved the hot tub that you fill with natural geothermal water and the views are amazing! There are also several small hiking trails right near the cottage that we enjoyed also. We were here late May to early June, so it never really got dark at night - just to the point of dusk. The sunset at night was beautiful!
