Follow the stair of about 50 wood-stepped paths up to the cabin. Sit out of an evening and watch for the Northern Lights, then rest on the stove-side rocking chair amid wood paneling that extends to the vaulted ceilings, and look out forest-wards from the deck. Going downtown Reykjavik is only 20 km away, the Blue Lagoon 40km, the International airport 35km, the Golden Circle for a day trip and many more. Recommendations in the Area will be available for guests. https://www.cntraveler.com/gallery/best-airbnbs-in-reykjavik A car is essential staying at the cabin and a 4x4 during wintertime.
“The location of the cabin offers the best of both worlds. It is located on a nature preserve which offers the peacefulness of nature while being close to Rychiyvic / Blue Lagoon, and other Icelandic sights with in a 30-40 min drive. Our host Kathrina and her husband was very responsive and very gracious with assisting us with one or two small “tourist” issues, to include helping free our car when is got stuck in the snow!.. Thank you again Katarina! The cabin is spacious and perfect for people traveling with 2-4 people. The wood burning stove is great! It completes the cabins cozy feel and truly makes it toasty warm. After a long day of exploring we enjoyed the warm fire with a nice cocktail, making for relaxing evening.”

“I could not have picked a better place to stay for my first and last night in Iceland. Inga is an incredible host. She opened her entire home to strangers and the location is ideal, about 20 minutes outside of the Reykjavík downtown core. She was very sweet and we had many laughs during our conversations. I felt truly like I was staying in a home. The handover was easy and her communication was amazing. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip to Iceland! Until then Inga :)”
Exellent location between Airport (30 min.) and Reykjavík (15.min Central). The Cottage is downtown Hafnarfjörður, close to the harbour, a walking distance from Restaurants, Coffee shops, Tourist info, cute little shops, supermarket and a central bus stop. Taking a SAUNA after a long day is a real treat and the "outside" shower is a great experience, if you don't fancy outdoor shower you are welcome to use inside shower. The outside shower is though inside with all the privacy needed.
“The cottage was absolutely perfect! It is conveniently located approximately 20 minutes from Reykjavík and is also situated in the perfect location for day trips to the Golden Circle, Vik, the Reykjanes Peninsula and more. The place was well stocked with tea, coffee, salt, pepper etc., lots of towels and maps/visitor guides to help us plan out our days. I was a little unsure how I was going to feel about the outside shower since we visited in the middle of winter but it was a great feature! If you don’t want to shower outside they allow you to shower inside their home. Overall the accommodations were perfect for our week in Iceland and I would definitely stay here again!”
