My family just returned from 2 weeks in Europe and this was our favorite Airbnb out of the 4 we stayed in! The cabins floors are geothermal heated and it was nice and toasty inside (and easily cooled down when we wanted by cracking a window). The kitchen had all the cooking essen…

Our family just got back from Iceland, and we stayed at this lovely cabin for a portion of our week there. The host, Hrafn, was very easy to communicate with and responded promptly every time we had a question. We had the pleasure of meeting Hrafn, and he was so kind and helpfu…

We stayed at Hrafn's cottage during our short return to Iceland this winter over the long MLK weekend. Since we only had a few nights, we wanted to be centrally located so we could spend less time driving and more time enjoying this country's natural beauty. The location is rem…

The house and the surroundings are beautiful. We saw the Northern Lights from there and they were stunning. The overview of the lake is great and there is very little traffic in the area. It's a great location between Reykjavik and Southern Iceland. The house was very clean…

Response from Hrafn:
Dear Beth We are so glad you enjoyed our cottage were happy with your stay overall, and thanks for your very nice feedback. We are sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience with the hot tub. This was truly not our attention if we would have noticed this before your stay then I would have fixed it straight away, it only took 10 minutes to get it fixed after all. The problem was that the mixers for the hot tub were broken, sadly these mixers don't last longer then these 5 years the cottage has been in use, so the hot water valve did just open halfway which was the reason it took such a long time to fill up, the flow was just so little. Unfortunately I didn't find out about it until after your stay and even after the next guests staying after you (Caroline) But we are happy to announce the problem has been fixed so everything is back to normal we really appreciate your feedback and try our very best to make each stay the very best. Best wishes Hrafn & Þórunn

We had an amazing first trip to Iceland. This was our first time using air b&b, Hrafn was a wonderful host who met us at the house and provided lots of recommendations for the area. The home and views were better in person than the pictures! Would stay here again and again!
