It made us feel very welcomed straight way. The house has pretty much everything you need to make a simple meal (except grocery). Coffee machine, tea...

We loved staying here with the geothermal hot tub. The location looks way more remote than it is and the privacy is wonderful!

We also visited Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths, which was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. The view from the cabin...

Management response:

Thank you very much, Carol. You apparently have noticed the strength of this cabin, the location so close to the famous natural sights, but at the same time the fullness of attractions and activity in the neighborhood.
