About this listing

Description

The space

This unique property was built to reflect the Icelandic landscape and complement the small vegetation of moss and trees in the old lava-field.

The property is also very green and sustainable. The house is kept warm by geothermal water that runs through pipes in the floor keeping it warm and comfortable year-round. For those extremely cold days in the winter, we also have additional heaters that can be placed in the sleeping area and living room to further heat the house. All warm water in the house comes from a local geothermal hot-spring and the cold water is natural cold spring water from a nearby well. The electricity in the house is generated by geothermal energy from a nearby power-station.

Please note that we do not have a landline at the house so we cannot offer WiFi included in our rates. We can have a WiFi box delivered to the house but it will be at a surcharge as it is owned by a third party.

The house has 2 bedrooms with queen size beds as well as 1 small bedroom for a single child or possibly an adult that is under 5.5 ft or 165 cm. Upstairs there is a space which sleeps 2-3 sleeping bags. We have a queen size air-mattress that can be used upstairs.

The house also has a washer and dryer as well as a full kitchen with dishwasher/stove/oven.

The property is quite spacious and has a small children playground in the back.

From mid-August the property has crow berries and wild blueberries growing all around the cottage.

Laugarvatn is 15 minutes drive (Fontana Spa, Lindin Restaurant, N1 Gas Station and a small grocery store).

Geysir is 10 minutes away (Geysir, Strokkur, Geothermal area, Geysir Center, Camping ground, Souvenir Shop).

Kerid is 30 minutes away.

Service Center with a small grocery store, pool, restaurant, camping ground, mini-golf, 9-hole golf course, horseback riding and much more is 2 minutes away.
