The space
This old cabin has been renovated on a large scale since I bought it roughly 3 years ago. Here you will live “semi-off-the-grid”, with only solar powered electricity (12V) but plenty of geothermal HOT water!
- Hot tub is large and nice and can be enjoyed any time of the day - as much as you like.
- The shower is outside under the trees beside the hot tub, there is endless hot water!
- Kitchen is new and beautiful with gas stove and also a charming traditional wood fire stove (usable for “slow cooking”). All essentials for cooking are available such as cutlery, pots, oil, salt, spices etc. Barbecue outside.
- One radiator heats up the cabin - as well as the wood fire stove.

The house is 40 square meters and has 2 small bedrooms and a sleeping loft.
- Bedroom A has a double bed (120 cm wide)
- Bedroom B has a bunk bed - lower is 120 cm wide, upper is 70 cm ( bed)
- The sleeping loft has a nice double mattress (160 cm wide). Note: This space has no door and you need to climb up a steep ladder. A smaller single mattress can be used as well.

Lighting: Solar powered lights and candle lights (lots of candles available) and also some battery lights.
You can charge your phones by using the solar energy battery.
Internet connection: There is Wifi (3G/4G router), medium-speed.

Where you’ll be

Kjósarhreppur, Iceland

The cabin is located in Kjós, which lies between Hvalfjörður bay and the Þingvellir area, therefore you have direct road connection to both the SOUTH and the WEST part of Iceland.
- South direction: Þingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir, Seljalandsfoss, Reynisfjara, Vík etc.
- West direction: Hvalfjordur, Snæfellsnes, Borgarfjördur etc.
- Capital direction: Reykjavík, Blue Lagoon, Keflavik airport etc. Reykjavik is only 40 km away or 30-40 minutes drive.
- Next grocery store (as well as pharmacy, bakery, fast food etc.): Mosfellsbær (27 km)

The cottage is located on a hillside which is grown with Icelandic flora like grey moss, blueberries, crowberries and trees like birch and pines for example. Usually there are birds singing in the trees and if it is not windy you will hear the sound of the river called "Laxá í Kjós".

There will probably be horses and sheep around the cabin, the fence around the cottage is old and will not keep animals away anymore. But they are totally harmless and rather pretty so I guess the will not bother you.
Everything outside the fence belongs to the farmer, please do not disturb the animals or the farmer and his family.
Please keep the gates closed, if they were closed when you arrived.

I am a mother of 3 boys (11, 14, and 18). I enjoy nature, hiking, yoga, zumba and cats for example. I am a software engineer, working daily as an IT developer. My job offers a lot of flexibility so hosting via Airbnb is very convenient and I have been doing that on and off for about 5 years now with great success and pleasure. About my current listing(s): 1) Cabin Romance - between city and Golden Circle In 2016 me and my boyfriend bought an old cottage just outside the city. We have been renovating it and it is has become quite nice and comfortable. Staying there is a perfect getaway from anything because the place is so quiet and feels so remote - yet being very close to the capital area. We are now offering it to responsible guests that are interested in different kind of accommodation - without Wifi and TV and in direct contact with nature. 2) I have sold “House on the Hill” (which can be seen in many of my reviews) so it is not available anymore. The listing “Bedroom with balcony and breakfast” was in the same house. Perhaps I will set up a guest room in my new house later.
