Spacious cottage, well located in southern Iceland. The cottage is near Hekla, Landmannalaugar, Fjallabakur and many more famous places. Only 20 min drive from Hella and the highway. In the winter there is a possibility to see the famous northern lights. We're on Google maps: Search for "Afternoon Cottages". Cozy cottage surrounded by a nice nature. You have almost everything you need in this cottage. It's just like a studio apartment. Well equipped kitchen with a small fridge, 2 element ceramic cooktop, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and all the kitchenware that's needed. You can use all the coffee and tea you need. Large bed for two people, 32" TV on the wall to watch Netflix or the local TV station (RÚV). Duvets and duvet covers will be ready along with a sheet on the bed. Two cozy armchairs for chilling. The dining table can be upsized (doubled) if you have friends staying in the other houses to have meal with you or just a chat over a cup of coffee. Private bathroom with a toilet, shower and a nice lighting mirror over a sink. Towels are included. Hand- and bathsoap is ready to be used.
Afternoon Cottages was a delightful find. The property is new and, as such, I entered into the reservation wondering if the property would live up to its billing. It most certainly did! There are three separate cottages on the property - close to each other but sufficiently set up to allow for privacy. Cottage 3, in which I stayed, looks down the embankment toward the river with mountain views to the east. The cottage is well-appointed and has lovely finishing touches for a "tiny living" space. Overall, the cottage was bright and airy. It comes with a small refrigerator, a two burner stove, microwave, coffee maker, and tea kettle. The kitchen is stocked nicely allowing for cooking - not gourmet meals for sure - of simple breakfasts and easy dinners. The cottage has a TV with access to Netflix and comes wifi enabled. Keep in mind that you are a good 20-30 minutes drive from any town of any size...and there is wifi! (That's Iceland for you). The bed is comfy. The bathroom is generously sized for a small living space and comes stocked with shower gel/shampoo and wash clothes (wash clothes being a rare find in my three trips to Iceland). There is a small deck that surrounds two sides of the cottage. As mentioned, the cottage is a distance from any town so one should be prepared with groceries which can be bought easily up on the Ring Road whether coming from the east or west. Reaching the cottages requires driving paved and improved gravel roads. A regular car can make the trip easily in the summer; not sure what winter travel would be like down the roads. If you are looking for seclusion, outside of the other cottages next to you, you shall have it. Elvar, the owner, is responsive and was open to my suggestions on how to take the cottage from a 5 star to a 6 star. I absolutely loved staying in this little space and would return in a heart beat.
