We are proud to present our three brand new cabins completed in March 2017. Our cabins are cosy and warm, with geothermal radiators in each room. Each cabin has two bedrooms. The main bedroom has two single beds (or one double) and the second bedroom has bunk beds. Additionally we have a large sofa bed which can comfortably sleep two people. A total of six people can be accommodated in each cabin. Outside on the timber decking you will find a barbeque, outdoor furniture and stunning views. We also provide free internet, a DVD player, flat screen tv., books and board games. Our kitchenette boasts a “pod” coffee machine and microwave and just about everything you could need for cooking. Our bathrooms are private, have full showers, free toiletries and a hairdryer. All linen and bedding is supplied. We are 6 kilometres from the town of Egilsstaðir where you will find everything you need including Netto and Bonus supermarkets, hardware, clothing, medical facilities, a fabulous swimming pool and hot tubs plus coffee shops. Your hosts speak both Icelandic and English
We are a semi-retired couple in our early 60´s. Ari is a native Icelander while Naomi is an Australian through and through. After living in Australia for some 20 years, we decided to move back to Iceland in 2016 to follow a dream of setting up a hospitality business for people visiting our beautiful island. We have two Cavalier King Charles dogs who happily followed us from Australia and now live on our couch. (Interesting to watch an Aussie Cavalier King Charles in the Icelandic snow).
Our cabins are conveniently located only 6km out of the town of Egilsstaðir, right in the heart of East Iceland. Only a couple of kilometres up the road is the horse farm, Útnyrðingstaðir where you can get guided horse riding trips. In the other direction (22km away) is the beautiful area of Hallormsstaður, Iceland´s biggest forest where you can pick wild edible berries during the autumn months. All around, there is stunning scenery and unspoilt nature.
