We rented the smaller one of two flats on the areal. From the outside it looked rather like a box or a dog shelter than a house - but inside it's really cosy and comfortable. Nothing is big or spacious, but there's room for all you need to stay for a few days. Only downside: the door to the bathroom didn't close entirely - maybe somebody could fix this in the winter time?
The location is nice, close to the coast line. The village isn't big, but there are some nice old fashioned buildings around there, and spots like Thingvellir, Gulfoss or the Geysirs can be reached within 1-2 hours by car. Plus
