This is a 'large' ALL luxury, NEW house with all things needed to enjoy Iceland to the fullest.
Beautiful nature in the middle of the Golden Circle.
This is a beautiful house in an absolutely stunning location, with amazing views from every angle. The house is immaculate with 3 smart bedrooms. The kitchen includes everything you could ever need and has a lovely open plan layout with the dining area and sitting room. The owners, Martha and Rakel, are really lovely and very helpful. The house is located very centrally for visiting the Golden Circle. We would thoroughly recommend booking this house.
Very comfortable house, all the mod cons, fantastic views, clean and well maintained.
Easy access to the sights of the Golden Circle and further, allows at least an hour's start over the tourist coaches coming from Reykjayik :)
Fuel station just down the road, with shop for necessaries.
Thank you for the warm welcome and leading us to the supermarket when we first arrived, too.

The property is wonderful. It is located within easy reach of Pingvellir National Park, Gulfoss waterfall, a giant geysir, and the Langjokull glacier. We went snowmobiling, hiking by the tectonic plates, and enjoyed the view of the lake at the Fontana spa in town. The location and the floor to ceiling windows are perfect for seeing the Northern Lights. It is well situated for lots of activities.
To note: there is a coffee machine which takes WHOLE beans. You should plan to do your grocery shopping in the city before driving out. The house is very warm and cannot be temperature controlled - just be sure to also pack a t-shirt.
Our stay and this house was a highlight of our trip. I couldn't recommend it more!
We spent a week in February at this rental home and found the accommodations perfect for our stay. The home is quite modern and up-to-date with everything you need for a week-long stay. There was plenty of space for our family of four among the three bedrooms.
The location of the home really puts you close to all of the sights of the Golden Circle. Geysir is just twenty minutes down the road, along with other natural sights like waterfalls and craters. For those looking to cook your own meals, there is a small store right down the road, and a larger supermarket only twenty-five minutes away.
The home is also quite private and quiet. A great place to get away.
And, yes, we saw the northern lights there on our second night.
We couldn't have been happier with our visit to Iceland, and a large part of that was the accommodation.
Rakel and Martha provided good information before we arrived, and were on hand to meet us at a designated point on our way from the airport. We didn't have any need for their help after the welcome, and weren't bothered at any point.
This is a lovely house, immaculately presented and possessing all of the modern conveniences you could want.
We spent most of our time out and about exploring Iceland, but it is always nice to be able to come back, relax and recuperate in nice surroundings. The bathroom is large and clean and the hot water is delivered quickly. The kitchen is well appointed with a particularly nice coffee machine. Wifi was excellent and the bed warm and comfortable.
The location is excellent too. It is a lot more convenient to the most popular (Golden Circle) attractions. It's also not particularly far (90 minutes drive) to Reykjavik.
During our week in Iceland. First day we arrived late and saw the Aurora (that was the only night which was clear of clouds). Second day we drove the 5 hours each way to see Jökulsárlón. Third day we spent at Blue Lagoon including a lovely dinner. Fourth day we did Geysir and Gullfoss. Fifth day we did Reykjavik city including lunch and dinner at Fish Company. Last day we went to the Bridge Between Continents, Reykjavik again and finally Fontana spa.
I'd recommend everything about our holiday to anyone.
Finally, hiring your own car is almost essential. If you are going in winter as we did, make sure it is a 4wd like the Qashqai we had.
Had a great time staying in your house, on our first night in you beautiful house we managed to see the Aurora Borealis (got some great pictures). We have visited some sights and always came back to a warm comfortable house!!
If we ever come back to Iceland we would definitely rent this house again, you have helped us create memories that we will never forget.. Would like to say thank you very much for letting us sharing your home!!

Laugarvatn is around 70 km from Reykjavík, placed midways between Þingvellir and Geysir – in the heart of the Golden Circle. The shortest way from Reykjavík lies through Þingvellir. The longer way lies towards Selfoss but turns left shortly before you get there for road no. 37 which takes you to Laugarvatn, about 90 km.
Laugarvatn has since long ago been a settlement for education and a popular summer resort among Icelanders. Today the population of Laugarvatn is around 250 but the number doubles during the winter month when the students arrive.
In the Laugardalur valley is a big area of cottages, hence there is various opportunity for leisure, i.e. one of the countries best sports-hall together with a outside swimmingpool and a fantastic sports-ground. By the lake of Laugarvatn it is possible to rent boats and windsurfing boards. All around Laugarvatn you will find lots of good walking paths, a golfcourse and an opportunity for angling in rivers and lakes, rent horses etc.
The Laugarvatn Fontana Spa opened in july 2011. See fontana.is.
In the village you will find, in addition to a great swimming pool, a post office, grocery store and a restaurant
Just outside Laugarvatn there is a golf course and possibilites for angling in waters and rivers and the area is great for hiking.
Laugarvatn is situated in a beautiful spot in the town of Laugarvatn, about 73 kilometres (45 miles) from the nation’s capital driving through Thingvellir or Parliament Plains. It is the perfect base for touring the “Golden Circle”, a triad of Iceland’s most popular natural wonders, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Thingvellir National Park, the ancient site of the world’s first parliament.
