5/5 Excellent

Loved everything about this cottage. Our favorite spot of our trip around Iceland. Staff and service friendly. Location of cottage was wonderful, peaceful . Spacious cottage with all amenities - even crocs to walk to the hot pool, which we loved (and had to ourselves the half hour we were there). TV and wifi were fine, as was the kitchen. Beautiful walk to the falls and a hotpool near the check in - staff was great to make recommendations. My daughter and i did a 3 hour horseback ride and it was spectacular. We went at 8am (so we could leave at noon) and it was quiet, view was beautiful, guide was informative. We were able to do the "tolt" ,the 5th gait of Icelandic horses - so much fun. We hope someday to return!! Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL cottage in a BEAUTIFUL setting. This was easily the best lodging out of 6 different places we stayed in during our trip to iceland. The geothermal pool outside was sooo relaxing after a long day and the perfect temperature. Setting was beautiful. We stayed in the Flughaus (bird) cottage and the avian theme was super cool. Kitchen had basic spices, coffee, tea, and flatware/dishes. Go horseback riding with Hestasport as well - the 1 hour tour was perfect for newbies. In fact, I wish we did the 2 hour tour!
