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.

Interazione con gli ospiti

We live in the city but can always be reached by phone, text messages and email with anything that comes up, questions or concerns.

A mobile phone that we provide is used to open the gate. See directions and House Manual (that you get access to when we accept your reservation) for details.

Il quartiere

Spectacular Northern Lights (aurora borealis) can be seen frequently during winter (or after it gets dark at night sometime in August).

The cottage area is in a beautiful valley (Eilífsdalur = Eternal Valley in Miðdalur = Center Valley) with small family farms, roaming livestock, large mountains, waterfalls, rivers, creeks and a number of hiking opportunities.

The fjord (Hvalfjordur = Whale Fjord) is spectacular and can be seen from the balcony (not the ocean during summer because the trees have grown so tall) and from the hills and certain parts of the road behind the cottage, and is only a few minutes drive from the area.

Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is only a 30 min drive (city limit); 40-45 min to the city center in good driving conditions.

Keflavik, the International Airport, is a 70-80 min drive (89 km) in good driving conditions.

A small store called Kaffi Kjós (Café Kjos) - open during weekends in Apr-May and every day during the summer - is in the next valley (East) by Meðalfellsvatn (Medalfell-lake), a 12-15 min drive.

Meðalfellsvatn (Meðalfell is the name of the fell/small mountain) is a beautiful lake with trout and salmon where the public can fish for a small fee.

The closest gas station and a small convenience store (Kjalarnes) is a 15 min drive towards Reykjavik. The closest (heated) swimming pool - not fancy.

The closest large supermarket/town (Mosfellsbær) is a 25-30 min drive (towards Reykjavik) with e.g. one of the nicest outdoor (and indoor) swimming pools in Iceland (Lagafellslaug) with three slides, several hot tubs and more. Open all year.

One of the most famous salmon rivers in Iceland, Laxá í Kjós is a 10 min drive (East).

The tallest waterfall in Iceland, Glymur is in the bottom of the fjord. A famous hike trail (Leggjabrjótur) starts there (22,51 km / approx 3 hours).

The national park, Thingvellir (a part of the "Golden Circle") is a 40-45 min drive.

Un giro nei dintorni

A regular car is needed. No public transportation.

During the winter (November-March) a 4-wheeler / CUV on winter tires (preferably with studs) is strongly recommended.

Winds can reach 50m/sec, snow can get deep and icing on roads make them slippery.

Altre cose da evidenziare

It is very important that you read the House Manual before you arrive since it includes arrival instructions.

There we attempt to explain everything that we feel is important for you know so that you can make the most out of your stay.


Regole della casa
Non è consentito fumare
Animali non ammessi
Vietato organizzare feste/eventi
L'orario di check-in è flessibile

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.

We had the most amazing time at Oddny and Palmi's cabin. The cabin was just over an hour from the Keflavik airport and about 30 minutes from Reykjavik. We used the cabin as a base camp and took several day trips throughout Iceland. It was so nice to come back to each evening. The views as you drive up are spectacular and the cabin itself is so peaceful and relaxing. It was also incredibly clean and had absolutely everything we needed. When I thought we were out of laundry soap I messaged Oddny as to where to buy more and she told me about three more bottles I had missed. So everything was well stocked and we had everything we needed. Oddny was amazing at communication and was incredibly helpful. She was always available via message or phone and when I wrote her messages through Airbnb she responded so quickly. It was so nice to have her help and insights on both the cabin and Iceland itself. Palmi is an incredibly talented craftsman and his work is displayed throughout the cabin. We ran out of time to visit his shop but I wish we could have visited it. Next time we will block our time to visit his shop, meet him and buy some of his incredible pieces. Overall we had an amazing stay and would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Oddny and Palmi for a wonderful stay! We made memories that will last a lifetime.

Dieses Haus ist einfach mit dem Auto erreichbar (vom Flughafen oder Reykjavik) und liegt trotzdem in einem sehr ruhigen Naturgebiet. Die Ausstattung ist familienfreundlich und alles steht zur Verfügung (Waschmaschine, Trockner, Spiele, Hochstuhl, Mikrowelle,...).Das Haus ist geschmacksvoll ausgestattet und die großen Fenstern und die Terasse ermöglichen den vollen Genuss der Umgebung. Oddny und Palmi sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich und geben klare Anweisungen, damit der Aufenthalt reibungslos läuft (Wegebeschreibung, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten). Ein klare Empfehlung aus unserer Seite!

This place is BEAUTIFUL. The pictures do not accurately describe how beautiful this place is. Perfectly clean and the cabin is very modern and nice. Oddny was very communicative and was great to deal with.

We had a wonderful time at Oddny's place. This is my first time of using Airbnb and if this is anything to go by then I'll be sure to it again. Oddny's place was beautiful, secluded yet within easy access of all major roads to get you to the sights. The hosts are the best kind, heard but not seen. Always available should you need them but they have the place set up so good that you never need to. To all those looking at this property, go for it. Trust me you won't be disappointed. Thanks again Oddny.

Very complete accomodation. No need to bring extra items. Solid house and furniture, very clean. Good help when our arrival was delayed to the middle of the night. This place is very recommendable, also for family with children.

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 children) had the pleasure of staying at Oddny and Palmi's beautiful cottage for five nights in late April. The cottage is light and spacious and offers the most stunning view of the mountains surrounding it...we would have been content just to stay in for the duration of our time in Iceland! Lucky for us, the Golden Circle is within convenient access from the cottage so we were able to drive to most attractions on this route. Oddny has been the most helpful and delightful host, and is always prompt with answering all our questions. We are thankful for her recommendations as well as local insights that made our holiday so enjoyable. Oddny has also anticipated our children's needs and made their stay all the more delightful with toys and such. As parents to young children we were pleased to find thoughtful little touches like child-size hangers and step stool at the cottage. We would not hesitate to recommend Oddny and Palmi's beautiful cottage/chalet to any family looking for a secluded yet convenient location from which to explore south-west of Iceland!

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 :-)
