Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Built in 2017, a warm and cozy cabin located in Kjós, Hvalfjörður, only 35 minutes drive from Reykjavík. The perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful northern lights and to visit the Golden Circle.

The space
The cabin is located in Eilífsdalur, a valley in Kjós, Hvalfjörður. Here you'll be able to reach Reykjavík in only 35 minutes but still stay in the countryside, enjoying the nature close to some of the main attractions. Here you will find great walking trails, mountains for hiking, Geysir and the Golden Circle within an hour away.
Next to our garden we are often lucky to get a visit from the Icelandic horses so be sure to have your camera at hand even though you are just walking around the cabin. During winter you'll have the opportunity of enjoying the northern lights just outside on the patio.
The cabin (around 40m2) is perfect for couples, families or groups of 2-4 people travelling together.
You'll enter into a small hall with a closet where you can hang your outerwear. Beautiful tiles covering the entrance and the bathroom floor will give you a welcoming feeling.
From the entrance hall you'll find a small bathroom with a shower, towels and a hairdryer.
The entrance will then take you into the open living room with a bohemian, warm style and fully equipped kitchen where you'll find a small refrigerator, oven, stove, toaster, electric kettle, and pots and pans for cooking. You'll find both a Nespresso machine (we have few capsules for your stay but feel free to bring your own) and a french press, plus coffee, tea and hot chocolate for you to enjoy. You also have salt, pepper and other spices you can use. In the living room you'll feel the cozy atmosphere where you can enjoy quality time under a blanket admiring the view, playing cards or simply just enjoying the quietness. In the living room we have a sofa bed where two persons can sleep.
From the living room you can walk out on a small patio with chairs, table and a BBQ - perfect to enjoy the sunset!
In the bedroom you'll find a queen size bed, closet and a 40" flatscreen. Above the bedroom is a small loft with comfortable mattresses where two people can sleep.

During your stay

Since we are living abroad we unfortunately wont be able to meet you when you arrive. You can however contact us at all time. There is a mobile phone in the cabin that can be used to contact us if needed. Whatever time it is, we are here to help!
My family also lives only 5 minutes away, so let me know if there is anything needed.
