    A cozy little cottage in a stunning and very quiet region of iceland. We loved to stay there. When we needed fresh towels, the hosts brought them right away. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and soaking in the hot tub.

The cottages are in a farm area which is very tranquil and nice. You can get away from all the stress, relax in the hot tub, enjoy the environment and breathe in the good air in Iceland.
We are the owners Einir and Guðfinna and we had this dream for a long time to build these cottages in their favorite environment and letting people experience the tranquility of the area. We have been married for 40 years. We have four grown children and many grand-children. Einir was raised her on this farm but Guðfinna is from Reykjavík We started Einishús in 2012 and then we where working elsewhere also but now we only work here. Because we are only two of us working here we can not be all the time at the office. We have to clean the houses and wash the linen. Therefore we sometimes leave the key outside the office and our costumers can take the key at any time they like after 3 o'clock and in the morning return it to the mailbox when they leave. We really want to meet all our guests so if you see our marked car by some house we are there cleaning so do not hesitate to come and talk to us. You can also call us or send us an e-mail and we will answer you as quickly as we can. We are here to help you any way we can. Warm regards Guðfinna and Einir
Laugar is a small village nearby, 3km, and there is a good outdoor swimming pool and a restaurant, Dalakofinn. Goðafoss is a beautiful waterfall about 10km away. Very nice environment and you can hike around.
