Disa's cabin was absolutely fantastic! Cannot rate it more highly! We had the perfect holiday here - feeling so comfortable and relaxed from the get go. Like a home from home.
Disa was quick and very helpful in responding to any questions before we arrived. The cabin was stunning - with idyllic views over the mountains, excellent kitchen and cooking facilities, comfy sofa and armchairs, open fire, incredibly comfy bed etc - and of course the awesome hot tub!
It is also a perfect location - right in the middle of all the locations in the 'Golden Circle' and around 1.5hrs drive from Reykjavik.
Thank you so much Disa. We hope to return again soon.
We had an amazing winter holiday trip in Iceland and stayed 11 nights at Dísas summerhouse.
The house itself is very clean, cozy, warm (hot when you make a fire in the oven, even with more than -10°C outside) and very comfortable. The sleeping room is large enough, we even had place in the wardrobe to unpack our clothes. We slept well in the comfortable double bed. You find a very good shower with massage system in the bathroom. Outside is a hot tub with even more massage programs. We used the hot tub during the winter stay, even though it was cold outside the jacuzzi has 38 ° C. In the kitchen you find everything you need for a good meal. There is enough equipment to cook everything you'd like to. The sofa in the living room could be switched to another bed, but we didn't use it as bed.
The house is secluded but near to the Golden Circle, where are lots of tourist attractions like Geysir & Strokkur or the Gulfoss waterfall. We made many day trips from here and had no problems to reach everything. For visiting Jökulsarlon or Skaftafell National Park you should plan a two day trip and stay the night near Jökulsarlon. Selfoss is the next town, reachable within 20 minutes where you can buy everything you need. Many other places to visit in the south are nearby, e.g. Reykjarnes, Reykjavik, Seljalandsfoss, Svartifoss or Skogafoss. Some of the waterfalls were not findable / reachable due to too much snow (e. g. we didn't find a suitable walk to Bruarfoss).
The most amazing thing and main reason for our iceland adventure during winter were the aurora borealis. Because the house is near pingvallavatn (the largest and deepest lake in iceland) you can find a very nice spot to take pictures of the aurora. We had 4 nights with northern lights and made many photos of the spectacle.
The way to the house is easy to drive, for the last 1/4 km I'd recommend a 4WD car, especially in winter. And you should never leave the house without a snow shovel in you car - vidibrekka (the streets name to the house) can become very snowy when its windy. For all other streets we have always checked the road conditions online ((website hidden)) before we left.
Contact to Dísa and her father was mainly made by mail or text message. They replied quickly and offered help wherever they could.
We can absolutely recommend Dísas summerhouse and Dísa as host. Everything was well prepared and we enjoyed our winter holiday very much.
Gemütliches, sauberes und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Sommerhaus mit sehr guter Ausstattung (Jacuzzi auf der Terrasse, Dusche mit Massagedüsen, Toilette mit Spülsensor, Holzofen)
Besitzer war sehr freundlich und bemüht.
Cozy, clean and aesthetic arranged summerhouse with very high-quality appointment (jacuzzi on the terrace, shower with massage-function, toilet with a sensor, stove) the hosts were very friendly and anxious.
We had a very nice trip to iceland and we would come back to this house. Thank you very much.
The directions and instructions for operating the gate and accessing the key etc were very accurate. Contact was made via 'phone to check all was OK and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The location was an ideal base for visiting sites in the south of Iceland. You will need a hire car. We covered most of the sites in the week we were there, - even got the ferry to the Westman Islands. The house was very well equipped - even down to food supplied in the fridge and cupboards to start us off - but best to do a food shop on your way to the house as there aren't any immediate shops. The setting was amazing - particularly the view from the hot tub was excellent. Plenty of storage for food and clothes. Perfectly warm. Would love to stay again and would thoroughly recommend it.
Though we never met Disa in person, she was extremely attentive running up to and during the holiday via email. She responded to queries quickly and was a pleasure to talk to. The summerhouse itself could not have been better. It's set in a very secluded site with a beautiful natural Icelandic garden. The house had lots of storage, was warm and cosy, and kitted out with everything you need. It's location was perfect; easy drives to Thingvellir, Reykjavick, Geysir and Gullfoss and was only 10 minutes from the Kerid crater. We even managed to drive to Skaftafell and back in just one day! Honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for the week. Oh, and the jacuzzi with a view of the mountains didn't hurt.
we had a very good stay at the cute icelandic summerhouse. the house was fully equipede and it was nice that we could use some stuff out of the fridge. the jacuzzi was very nice. we had some trouble opening the frontgate but a friendly woman was very helpfull to phone the owner. one advice for other visitors is to put the key in the locker with the code outside. we went into the jacuzzi and closed the door with the key inside the house. fortunately the window of our bedroom was open.

About the Host, Disa
I work in renewable energy and my main interests are the outdoors, hiking, climbing and skiing.
When I travel I like having a little place to call my own, somewhere I can cook up a quick meal or just relax, this is how I got to know the airbnb community and I haven´t looked back since.
