Here I am sitting in the wonderfully comfy bed in one of the 6 cottages enjoying mid-summer in Iceland. We have made this cute cottage our home for a couple of nights and wanted to write a review straight away as we are so impressed by it. The view over the field with a few sheep, the Lake and the snow-capped mountains beyond are fabulous. Last night, on mid-summers day we were treated to the most fantastic rainbow at 9.30 at night! No eye masks required though as the blackout blinds work well. The cottage is thoughtfully equipped - and feels like a tardis. Small on the outside but feels very roomy for 2 inside. Great shower - just what we needed after getting wet snowmobiling. This is within half an hours drive - as are the rest of the Golden Circle sights. We actually picked up microwave meals in Selfoss supermarket as could not be bothered to eat out as we had a 3 am start in the UK. We just wanted to spend more time in the evening enjoying the peace and views from the cottage. Would definitely come back and fully recommend to others.

we had a peaceful stay here - it's super quiet, with beautiful views. the instructions we were given were very accurate and helpful. the cottage had all the amenities we needed although i would suggest that they include plates and some more dishware. But the cottage itself is cute, well maintained, clean, with large windows to enjoy the view, good heating (the cottage was perfect and warm when we arrived), and a coffee machine. definitely recommend it if you're looking for something on the golden circle that is self-contained and low fuss.

We were travelling with the Malcombs and spent four nights at these cottages. The rural location was perfect but close to town so we could enjoy the local spa and restaurants. The cabins were very clean and nicely furnished. We had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend the Austurey Cabins to anyone! Gus and Janet Price

Wir haben Mitte Februar '21 unsere 6 tägige Einreise-Quarantäne in Austurey verbracht. Die Hütten sind nach ca 1 3/4 Std Fahrt ab Keflavík zu erreichen und sind leicht zu finden. Alle 6 Cottages bieten ungehinderten Blick über ein Feld auf den naheliegenden See und die entfernten Berge. Der See ist durch einen kurzen Spaziergang zu erreichen. Die Hütten sind groß genug für zwei Personen, sauber, modern und scheinen noch recht neu zu sein. Die Unterkünfte bieten jeweils ein großes Bett, ein kleines Bad mit verhältnismäßig großer Dusche, eine kleine Küchenzeile mit Wasserkocher, Kochfeld und einer Kaffeemaschine, eine Terrasse mit Gasgrill, einen Tisch mit zwei Stühlen und ein Sofa sowie einen Fernseher mit Netflix, Youtube etc. Die WLAN-Verbindung funktionierte einwandfrei und war schnell genug zum Streamen. Die Gastgeber sind sehr hilfsbereit und stehen den Gästen mit Rat & Tat zur Seite. Man hat sogar unseren Wocheneinkauf für uns beim nächsten Supermarkt abgeholt (via click & collect). Wir können die Austurey Cottages wärmstens weiterempfehlen, sei es für die aktuell verpflichtende Quarantäne nach der Einreise, für eine Nacht auf der Durchreise oder als Basis für Ausflüge mit dem Mietwagen.

From the first evening we found ourselves tormented by the many insects present. At first we thought that the problem was the place, but we realized that we found them on us and we were stung only inside and not outside. The bathroom in particular was a beehive. Sitting on the toilet also meant finding them on private parts. At night we did not sleep and the bites increased rapidly and did not heal. The itch was terrible. In the end we understood. The environment, as well as a species of midges that stung, was infested with FLEAS, as we verified by analyzing them under a microscope, once we returned home. The bed and the sofa were full of them and we found them on us as soon as we sat down. The photo of my body covered with the typical flea bites I think is exhaustive. Imagine head and private parts. The risk of potential transmitted diseases should also be considered. Never happened even in makeshift nights in the poorest areas of Africa. At three o'clock on the last night we ran away from this palace with its rectangular plates with raised corners. We had returned late for a trek and had dinner at 10 pm. But better to rest in the car than to be devastated by fleas. We specify that upon arrival we came from the airport, so we did not pick them up elsewhere. In the subsequent structures there were no problems and the damage on our bodies began to improve, even if we kept the appearance of plague for weeks. Last negative aspect is that the hosts, instead of veryfing the problem and apologizing, have preferred to work to have the review canceled on the platform with which we had booked.

Lovely cottages located in the middle of a green prairie full of sheeps and cute lambs. I stayed in June so I believe it must be totally different in winter. Just a short walk and you are in the beautiful lake, seeing Icelandic horses in your way. The cottage is perfectly equiped with everything you could possibly need. The most amazing thing is the wide windows overlooking the lake and the mountains, you don't need tv at all, the scenary and the lambs playing and jumping is all you need to watch. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom is correct and the kitchen has everything you need, including coffee and some snacks. Wifi works perfect so you can be connected to the world although maybe you want to disconnect. Car park by the door, outdoor barbecue facilities. I didn't have the chance to meet the owners, but I want to let them know that they have a very beautiful place and I will recommend to any one to stay over while doing the Golden Circle tour. It's a shame I can not upload photos because I have hundreds.. You maybe want to check it out in my flickr account "icegirl2" and tagged as "Austurey Cottages"

This cottage is in a great location for exploring the golden circle and we were lucky enough to see the northern lights from our cottage! The ground was covered in snow when we arrived, but we hired a 4x4 and this was fine for the roads to the cottage. The cottage is very well-equipped and lovely and warm. Waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the lake was certainly a highlight! The owners were great at keeping in touch and answered any questions I had. If you are wanting unique accommodation in a great location then I would highly recommend this place.

These cottages are in an absolutely stunning location; the views are spectacular! We stayed for five nights and couldn't have been more comfortable. There was plenty of room (think Tardis!) for the two of us and we had everything we needed; it was cosy, warm, and easy to regulate the heating; the kitchenette was well equipped; the shower room's beautiful; the wifi and TV were great; and the whole place was spotlessly clean. The communication from the owner was prompt, friendly and helpful. There's a supermarket nearby in the town, or others (cheaper) en route from the airport. While we were there, we did an ice cave tour and glacier walk from Vik (2 hour drive), visited Geysir and several waterfalls, went hiking, used the local Laugavatn Fontana thermal baths twice which were fantastic, and to top it all off we were privileged to witness the astonishing Aurora Borealis pretty much right overhead one night! It was our first visit to Iceland, but it won't be our last. All in all we can highly recommend a stay here.

The little house we stayed in for 5 days was really comfy and had everything we needed! Everything looked new and was really clean. It is a very quiet place with a great view to the lake! You can go there for really nice walks! Sometimes the sheeps from the owner come to say hello! We enjoyed our time here! The owner was very friendly and helpful! S&H
