This is a truly special apartment.

Location-wise it has the perfect balance of being quiet and secluded with the benefit of being an easy drive away from many of the great sites that Iceland (the south west in particular) has to offer. We initially drove from Reykjavik and the route is both scenic and fairly straightforward.

The apartment itself is simply sublime. I stayed with three other friends and we all wished that there were more apartments like this in the UK! The views are stunning and are maximised by the large floor-to-ceiling windows and the two terraces that adjoin the property. The hot tub is definitely the icing on a truly sizeable cake! Inside, the place comes with all of the equipment / furniture that you will need and we found the wifi to be particularly reliable. The open plan layout makes the most of the fantastic views and the ample light from the windows. The beds are very comfortable and although a few of the bedrooms are a little on the small side, the rest of the apartment more than makes up for it.

Two nights was definitely not long enough!

“Do all your sightseeing before checking in as you won't want to leave this treetop paradise.”

The house is a modern, very spacious, open concept and a haven of peace and quiet.We were only two staying there but even with many more people, you would feel as though you could find a space on your own very easily. There are two patios , both with open views into nature. Rarely in Iceland would you find a place with mature trees right in front of you from every window. There is a long 'catwalk' type structure that you can walk out on and be literally looking into the trees. All views, even from the small windows by the beds, look out to greenery and lovely big pines. It is close to Geysir, Gulfoss and Thingvellir National Park and many other amazing Icelandic sights but at the end of each day, you will look forward to coming 'home'. This hidden gem is tucked away in the hills near Laugarvatn.
Everything was very clean for our arrival and everything worked well. The kitchen is fully equipped, the WiFi worked perfectly, the beds were firm and very comfortable and the chairs and sofa in the living room guaranteed relaxation. I cannot think of anything we wished for. It was so easy to arrange the rental and get instructions from the friendly owner, as needed, He was quick to reply and genuinely wanted us to have a good time and enjoy the place. To fully appreciate the house, stay for at least three or four days if your holiday permits. We were there for 4 nights and were still reluctant to leave. I hope we get to return one day.

Liked best: The views and spaciousness of the property
Liked least: The sulphur smell from the hot water taps but this is very common in Iceland and you get used to it.
