    The location is stunning and the cabins are very comfortable. You're really in the middle of idyllic countryside when you stay at this property. I'll be recommending it to all my friends who are planning to visit Iceland.

    The bungalow was right on the lake and surrounded by beautiful views. It was remote yet only 10 minutes from town
