EXCEPTIONAL cottage with Jacuzzi, free wifii and Northernlights NEWLY RENOVATED

Located in: Reykholt »
My cottage is in the magnificent Icelandic NATURE, it´s close to Volcanos, riverfalls, geysers, glaciers, sea, hiking trails etz and only 50 min drive from the capital Reykjavík and 20 min drive from next city Selfoss, still so privat, peaceful and quiet. You’ll love my place because of the coziness and the neighborhood and the happy birds that feed from our terrace. My cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). It´s surrounded with love, magic and elves

You'll love my cottage, the garden, with large trees blocking all wind within the garden so the summers can get very warm (A VERY rare quality in Iceland!). Its only approx 50 min (75km) drive from Reykjavík, the capital and only 20 min drive from next village, Selfoss. The location is perfect as it is in the middle of all the tourist attractions in South Iceland but you will still have all the privacy you want to have and feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

Property description:
My cottage is a fully modernized cabin, recently redesigned that has all the kitchen utensils, refridgerator, dish washer, stove and oven, shower, washing machine, dryer, TV, DVD player, a hair dryer and a WiFi. There are three good bedrooms with bed‘s for 6 adult's. Sheets, linen and towels are included in the price as well as soap, shampoo and washing liquid for the washing machine.

I love gazing at the Northern lights in the Hot tub! The best seats in Iceland for sure! :)
In the summertime there are garden furniture on the deck, were you can sit and enjoy your coffee watching the birds and breathing the fresh Icelandic air.

*** NEW HOT TUB ***
We have a brand new jacuzzi that do not contain chlorine but SALT WATER which is much better for your skin. Some chemical-based water quality systems can leave your skin dry and irritated. Salt, on the other hand, makes the water feel soft and is gentle on your eyes and skin. Even after your soak, you can continue to experience the benefits of salt water’s gentle exfoliating and rejuvenating properties.
For centuries, people have traveled to mineral springs to bathe in the waters and experience their restorative powers. These hot springs, which draw their heat from beneath the earth’s crust, are inherently self-sustaining. In this way, they’re much like modern salt water hot tubs, which are designed to generate their own natural cleansing and soothing properties.
Our new high-quality salt water hot tub is as close as we can come to recreating the experience of a mineral spring at our cabin. Better still, you can soak in privacy while enjoying the bird's singing or the Northern lights dancing. By adding the benefits of salt water hot tub we can reap all the advantages of bathing in a mineral spring without leaving the peace and comfort of our backyard.

House rules:
Minimum age of renting guest is 24 years. I expect clean and respectful guests, who will enjoy my cabin the same way as I have done throughout the years. There's a strict No-Smoking policy inside the cottage and outside in the hot tub, but feel free to sit outside on the porch if you smoke. It can be really cold during the winter (and summer haha), most of the time you'll have nice weather during the summers, but the view will always amaze you. The cottage can host 6 adult's in three good bedrooms. House rules will be on display on a paper ready at the cabin for you to read through upon arrival (don't worry, it's not lengthy boring read :) )

Tourist attractions:
From the cottage you can easily drive to all of the main tourist attractions in South Iceland like Þingvellir (20 min), Geysir, (35 min), Gullfoss (40 min), Sólheimar (10 min), Laugarvatn (15 min), Reykholt (15 min), Skálholt (15 min), Kerið (5 min), Landmannalaugar (3 hours), Hekla (volcano), Eyjafjallajökull (volcano), Seljalandsfoss (1,5 hours), Skógarfoss (1,5 hours), Jökulsárlón (4 hours), Hveravellir (2,5 hours), Þjórsárdalur (50 min), Háifoss (1 hour), Bláa lónið (Blue lagoon, 1,5 hours), Reykjanes, Hraunfossar (2,5 hours), Hvolsvöllur (saga centre 1 hour), Flúðir (30 min), and many other places.

Swimming pools:
There are several swimmingpools, hot tubs and saunas/steam baths in the neighborhood. The closest one is only 1 km away at Borg (5 min also a small gym), Hraunborgir swimming pool (9 min), Ljósavatnslaug (10 min), Laugarvatn (15 min), Reykholt (15 min), Selfoss (20 min), Hveragerði (20 min) and more so take your swimmsuit with you everywere, even in the winter time.
„A swimsuit might not be at the top of your packing list when travelling to a country called Iceland, but the local, naturally heated swimming pools are the centre of the Icelandic social scene, where gossip and news is exchanged while bodies are warmed and relaxed.“ (Lonely planet)

Golf courses:
Some golf courses in the neighborhood: Kiðjaberg (10 min), Hraunborgir (9 min), Laugarvatn (15 min), Selfoss (20 min), Úthlíð (30 min), Flúðir (30 min) and more.

There are also some rivers and lakes close were they sell fishing licenses for example in Brúará, Ölfusá, Sogið, Hvítá, Úlfljótsvatn, Apavatn, Laugarvatn, Þingvallarvatn and more were you can fish trout and salmon.

In the neighborhood you can also go horse riding, hiking, river rafting, glacier walking, snorkeling, Ice cave tours, caving, super jeep tours, snowmobile tours, visit Þjóðveldisbaerinn Stöng (reconstructured farm from the sagas) etc depending on the season of the year or just relax and enjoy the nature.

Last but not least, please enjoy your stay at my cottage, please follow my house rules on the note in the cottage, be safe, and travel safely on your ways in Iceland.
