“We enjoyed our stay a lot. The cabin is a very cosy and warm place to spend your evenings after exploring Iceland. Location is very convenient, you can easily make multiple day trips to see the south. Katrin prepared a lot of local tips and suggestion for her guests and made sure that we know how to reach our stay safely (we visited in the winter time)! Very nice experience.”
This Unique Summer House was finished in 2010. This location is in one of the best vacation areas in the country. It is in the middle of the famous Golden Circle Route. The house was built to reflect the Icelandic landscape and complement the small vegetation of moss and trees in the old lava-field. It is a beautiful little gem within a great area of the country. 10 minutes to Geysir 20 minutes to Gullfoss 20 minutes to Skalholt 30 minutes to Kerid 40 minutes to Thingvellir
“Initially attracted by the unusual design of the cottage and its location, we were certainly not disappointed in reality. The cottage proved an excellent location from which we (two couples in early/mid 60s) based our exploration of the Golden Circle and bits of Southern Iceland. A spacious, light, and bright kitchen/diner/sitting room with great views over surrounding countryside particularly as it was covered in snow throughout our visit. An extremely well-equipped kitchen made cooking and eating in a pleasure (a substantial supermarket (Kronan) in Selfoss provided absolutely everything we needed including excellent meat, fish, and fresh produce). This space combined with great insulation/heating, comfortable bedrooms with excellent storage, and a good sized bathroom with shower made for very easy living. The weather during our stay included cloud, rain, snow, cold, wind, occasional sunshine, and a full moon - not ideal conditions for either viewing the Aurora or for lounging in the hot tub. However, the mixed weather did not detract in any way from our visiting and appreciating all the wonderful natural sights that this area of Iceland has to offer. The location is excellent being within the Golden Circle and with the South Coast and Reykjavik within easy driving distance (approx 2 hours depending on road conditions). A few words of advice/caution - a good 4x4 vehicle should be regarded as essential for visits to the Golden Circle, South Coast, and Thingvellir National Park areas at this time of year. We rented a Toyota Land Cruiser which proved to be the perfect vehicle - big, comfortable, well equipped, and very capable in all the weather conditions that were thrown at us. Not cheap to rent but well worth the investment. Palmi proved to be the perfect host. Despite his being in three geographic locations (USA, Portugal, and Norway) during our visit, he was always contactable and responsive via mobile, text, or WhatsApp whenever required irrespective of time zone differences. Upon arrival a telephone call was received from Palmi welcoming us all to his cottage as guests of his family and wishing to ensure that we had the best time possible during our stay. All in all a great cottage and location resulting in an excellent visit with many happy memories - thoroughly recommended.”

“This was a perfect little weekend getaway from the city for my wife and I. We loved waking up to the horses right outside our window, and spending the day in the private hot tub and patio. We had a visit from the dog and cat as well. As animal lovers this was a nice little surprise. The house is super cute, thoughtfully decorated and fully equipped for all your BBQ/ cooking needs. The board games were a nice addition as well. The view was incredible :) Sabine was also very quick in communication. I would definitely recommend Akurgerði farm if you’re looking for a cozy place to stay, and it’s only about 30/40 minutes away from Reykjavík.”
