This was the best accommodation during our trip in Iceland. We have booked the cottage G-22 and it was so beautiful, comfortable and clean and the view and landscape there was stunning! Siggi the owner was very friendly and helpful and I loved the cute border collie :-) Because of the bad weather and some business troubles at home we could only stay there for two nights, but we will definitely come again for few nights more!

First of all really great location: good point to explore middle and south part of Iceland. In the small cabin we had everything what we needed for our staying surrounded by the pure Nature. Definitely to be recommended for all looking for quite, independent place.

A beautiful and truly special property. We spent two nights here and wish we would have spent more. The south coast is awesome and this cabin is cozy, in a gorgeous area, and well equipped! On our drive out we visited Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, and the beaches at Vik. We arrived at the cabin for a short walk up the hill to the radio tower for a view of the glaciers to the west (recommended by the host). The next day we drove to Skaftafell and summited Kristínartindar (awesome and highly recommended for those that are in shape and strong hikers!) and then drove to the lagoons - it was a long day but worth it! My wife forgot her shoes at the property and the owners where very responsive, went above and beyond, and had their grand-daughter drop them off for us in Reykjavik! Highly recommended! My only recommendation to the host is to provide a bit better directions. They told us the property was 7km off the main road but it is actually closer to or over 8km (I set my trip odometer when we pulled off). Follow the signs to Giljaland and don't let the gate stop you! We were a bit hesitant to open the gate because in some places in the US you could get shot for going on to someone’s property!

This is the best place we stayed at during our two week trip to Iceland! The location is great if you are looking to visit Landmannalaugar, Fjadrargljufur canyon, Skaftafell Park, and south east area of Iceland. It's has a peaceful feel up on the mountains. Siggi and Thury are very helpful, and you can see the details and love going into the cottage. I would stay here again.

We were in the small house, Cabin 22, for 3 days. We had a wonderful stay. Only in this time of our holiday, we had a little bit bad weather-but it wasn`t a problem at this wonderful stay, because the house have a very warm atmosphere. You have in this house everything you need, and also a full kitchen euqipment! The owners are very kind and helpful! At one day we did a great walk anround the area with a beautiful view at the glacier! We could recommend Giljaland absolutly! Alex an Nicole, Stuttgart/Germany

We, a young couple with our baby, have absolutely nothing negative to tell about this accommodation! The owners are very nice, in the cottage we found everything we need, we were provided a baby cot directly without the need of asking for it. The cottage is clean, and we especially liked the wooden walls etc. The view from the terrace is gorgeous! Thank you, Siggi and Thury, we definitely like to come back one day!

We had a wonderful stay at Giljaland. The views are breathtaking and cabin itself is designed very efficiently and homey. The weather was so perfect that we even had a day on which we used the bbq and ate outside. Lots of thanks to Sigurdur.

Nous sommes arrivés à Giljaland G-24 le 22 juillet et nous avons trouvé ici la meilleure location de tout notre séjour en Islande mais probablement même de tous les endroits que nous avons visités auparavant. L'endroit est absolument magnifique, il faut le voir pour le croire. Après quelques kilomètres de route et de piste, on arrive dans une vallée verte, reboisée (rare en Islande) et on trouve cette cabane grise, en bois, qui semble flotter au dessus du mer verte. C'est très isolé, sur la piste 208 qui mène à Landmannalaugar et donc très très calme. Il n'y a pas de voisins, si ce n'est la maison des propriétaires (un peu plus haut) et la cabane marron qui jouxte la notre mais qui sont bien séparées. L'intérieur de la cabane est décorée avec goût et le bois omniprésent est très chaleureux. On a l'impression d'être dans un petit cocon, c'est génial. La chambre est très belle, simple, mais avec un lit au dessus du lit double qui était parfait pour notre petite fille de 3 ans. Elle a adoré ce lit et dormir au dessus de papa maman était génial. La salle de bains est très bien équipée et très agréable. Notre fille a adoré la douche avec les jets d'eau ! La cuisine est très bien équipée (il manque juste une passoire pour égoutter les pâtes mais on en a pratiquement jamais vu en Islande...) et le salon est petit mais très agréable. La vue depuis la cuisine et le salon est magique, il n'y a pas d'autres mots. Je n'avais jamais mangé avec une telle vue, vraiment. Malgré la sensation magique d'isolement, on capte ici très bien Internet et il y a même la télé par satellite avec les infos de Skynews comme dans les plus grands hôtels de ville ! Nous avons passé trois nuits ici et nous en sommes très heureux. Nous avons pu faire la route 208 en bus 4x4 jusqu'à Landmannalaugar et c'était une expérience inoubliable tant la piste est belle avec traversée de rivières, neige, paysages époustouflants. Notre seul regret : ne pas avoir rencontré nos hôtes qui habitent pourtant juste au dessus de la cabane. Je leur ai demandé par mail si on pouvait venir les voir mais ils n'ont jamais répondu, ce qui m'a assez déçu. Vous pouvez venir les yeux fermés dans cet endroit magique, vous ne le regretterez pas. L'endroit est fabuleux et vous vivrez une expérience unique. Merci à Siggi !!

Giljaland is a wonderful escape and Siggi is the most perfect host. The cabin (G42) was wonderfully cosy, clean and homely - It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Our children loved wondering around the site, playing with Siggi's dog, meeting the horses and the chickens. There are numerous activities and wonderful places to visit in the area and a 4x4 opens up a world of possibilities. We would love to come again!!!

Nous sommes de retour en France et avons passé un excellent séjour en Islande et dans votre cottage situé dans un cadre magique. Nous avons aussi apprécié votre location pour sa proximité avec les glaciers et notamment le site remarquables de Skaftafell. Une unique remarque sur l’équipement : un peu plus de vaisselle pour cuisiner et prendre ses repas…..

Wir waren wieder nach Island gereist und verbrachten abermals eine Woche in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Unsere Vorfreude war riesengroß, denn wir wußten, dass uns ein gemütliches, sauberes Häuschen in bezaubernder Natur erwartete. Der Höhepunkt dieser Reise war ein Ausflug mit dem Bus ins Hochland, das Wetter war dabei zauberhaft. Ein guter Ausgangspunkt um Ausflüge nach Vik, in den Nationalpark, zum Gletschersee und ins Hochland zu unternehmen. Die netten Vermieter wußten auf unsere Fragen immer eine Antwort und waren gerne bereit für uns Wäsche zu waschen. Takk fyrir frábært frí í þessum kelinn hús.

We stayed two nights in Giljaland 46 and it was such a nice place to relax after a long day of exploring! The photos capture the cottage really well. It was impeccably clean. The views out of the windows and from the property in general are breathtaking! The owners house is nearby but the cottage is situated so that there is lots of privacy. We initially had a problem connecting the Wifi and so walked over to their house. Sigurour was in Reykjavik at the time and Pury wasn't able to assist with that so she got Sigurour on the phone and we had it worked out very quickly! While there, we explored Vatnjokull National Park and hiked out to Skaftafell. We had it all to ourselves. We also drove out to the Glacier Lagoon and arranged for a guided tour for our family on Vatnjokull Glacier. If and when we ever are able to return to this part of Iceland, we would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it for anyone exploring the South Coast!

Eine wunderschöne, sauber Unterkunft auf dem Lande. Wir wurden herzlich aufgenommen und fühlten uns in der liebevoll eingerichteten Hütte sofort wohl. Die Umgebung ist sehr ruhig und idyllisch. man kann die Farm mit einem normalen PKW gut erreichen.Sollten wir wieder einmal nach Island reisen, würden wir dieses Haus wieder buchen, denn wir verbrachten dort wunderbare Ferientage. Es war eine gute Ausgangsposition um die Steilküste in vik und den Gletscher zu besuchen.
