Accesso ospiti

The last 7 km, after you turn into Miðdalur, is a gravel road so please drive carefully.

The cottage has a private parking area with gravel for 2-3 cars, different sized yards; one for playing/dining surrounded by a hedge with a small bridged stream running through it, one with two swings, and one with a fireplace and steps down into the natural garden that is fenced and has four small streams merging into one. Perfect for kids to play in and around.

In August both blueberries and crowberries grow wild and by the kitchen garden rughbarb also grows wild.

A kids playground, and a football/soccer field is around a 5-10 min walk from the cottage, inside the gated area.

A trash can is on the patio, and containers just outside the mobile gate.

This is a family owned cottage that we designed and built ourselves with the help of carpenters in 2008-2009. We expect guests to take good care of it. No more than six guests are allowed.

The cottage will be cleaned by us but you should leave the house in the order it was when you checked in, tableware washed, trash in the containers that are located just outside the mobile gate, and the hot tub securely strapped.

Please do not wash the linens (sheet sets). If you need to change them please use the spare ones in the cabinets/drawers and inform us so we can plan accordingly. We are very particular about how, with what and on which program and temperature they are washed :-)

During the winter you should NOT turn the heaters all the way down when you check out. If temp goes below 0C (32F) the water in the pipes could freeze and the pipes explode.

Very cute remote cottage with incredible views, but actually not too far a drive from the city. Only note is to make sure you stock up on groceries and have an appropriate vehicle, as the approach roads are slow gravel roads, and there are no local amenities, so popping out to shops or restaurants is not an option. We spent a few nights relaxing here on our honeymoon and were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. Oddny and Palmi were also extremely helpful hosts, with very detailed notes and great communication. For a quiet getaway this is highly recommended!

Beautiful house in a gorgeous setting. We had a rainbow every morning (don't think that's part of the deal, though). Excellent for children.

This cottage served our family of 5 (including 3 children ranging in age from 6 to 13 years) very well during our recent week long visit to Iceland. The location was perfect for day trips to Snaefellsnes peninsula, Kaldidalur pass, Vik, the Golden Circle and of course Reykjavik. The valley itself is also quite beautiful and afforded several opportunities for hiking and encounters with horses and sheep. Evening soaks in the hottub were a great way to end the day. I would highly recommend this cottage to families traveling to the area.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. This is a lovely, well-equipped and comfortable house and was a perfect "home base" for our family. Communication with the hosts was excellent and they were quick to answer any questions we had.

Fantastic fantastic fantastic. Stay here! Everything our little family could want and with an incredible ready to use hot tub with an amazing view over the valley. Beds were so comfy as were the sofas, felt like a home from home. We were sad to leave!

Enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially in our wonderful cottage that Palmi designed and built in 2008 with the help of carpenters.

A couple of years ago, a few months after our youngest son was born, we decided to share our cottage with people from all over the world to help cover the cost of running two homes. A true "win-win" situation, especially since it has worked really well so far :-)
