We really enjoyed the house. It was very easy to get to and we really liked the fact it was walking distance to the local thermal pool. The location to the Ring Road and local sites was perfect. The kitchen has everything you need. For 6 adults, it was very comfortable.

The home was comfortable, clean, and basic decor. The owner was communicative before and during our stay. The location is a short drive to town and close to Midguard Excursions and the Lava Centre.

We had a great time at Hrafnhildur's place. The only pity was that it was so short. The house was perfect for our kids - they had a bedroom each and lots of toys to play with :) . Location was quite central and Hvosvollur is a a good base to have for some of the attractions of South Iceland. Communication was great, house felt like a (URL HIDDEN) thank you Hrafnhildur :)

We really enjoyed staying at Hrafnhildur's place which was on a quiet residential street. She responded quickly to any messages. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and utensils so cooking was easy. In the kitchen the only thing we wished we'd had were slightly sharper knives. (We seem to run into dull kitchen knives often in vacation rentals...) Two small things to note, some of the electric plugs are of an older type and one needs to use extension cords that act as converters to the "normal" Icelandic plug. Took us a bit to figure this out, but once that was clear, no problem plugging in the coffee maker or cellphones to charge. Also, be careful coming out of the bathtub as, for us at least, the height took us by surprise. Location-wise, her place was a perfect base for exploring South Iceland. We ended up going to Solheimajökull, Vik, and Landmannalaugar. In Hvolsvöllur itself we enjoyed the public pool and the Saga museum. We enjoyed our dinner at Eldsto Art Cafe.
