BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE- GOLDEN CIRCLE -WONDERFUL VIEWS

South Iceland House Rental Photos and Description

Perfect Location For Golden Circle Sightseeing

Only 50 min drive from the capital Reykjavik. The house is 220 m2 with 100 m2 deck and hot tub near the national park, Thingvellir. The house is actually located in the heart of the Golden circle, every attraction is close by, such as Gullfoss, Geysir, Kerið('The Crater'), Silfra (Thingvellir) and many more. Relax in the hot tub and enjoy the view after a busy day of sightseeing. The uniqe location offers beautiful valley view and view over the river Sogið. On a clear day you can see all the way to the ocean.

The house comfortably rooms 8+persons with four spacious rooms. In three rooms there are queen size beds and in the master bedroom there is a queen size bed and an en suite bathroom with shower.

Very spacious kitchen, dining area and dining room fit for your every need. Cozy living room and also Tv room, this house feels more like an villa than a cottage.

The house is very well equipped with hot tub, washing machine, wifi internet, fresh linen and towels, pantry items and basically everything you need.

The house is very child friendly being on only one floor and is also equipped with child's high chairs and baby cot beds. Wast land for the children to play on also in the walking distance of a free 9-hole golf course. Truly a family paradise.

Located on the main road to the national park Thingvellir which is also a serviced road and makes it very easy to reach in every weather condition.

A fantastic play to stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a very spacious house, nicely furnished and very well equipped. We found everything we needed and more. Dishwasher, washing machine, chest freezer, large fridge were all there. The location is great, as are the views. We enjoyed our day trips and we enjoyed the terrace and hot tub afterwards.
Þórunn is very helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. Thanks to her directions and advice, we had no trouble finding the place, and the locations of nearby supermarkets and restaurants.
We stayed a week, and wished we could have stayed longer.

Huge, well-equipped house in great setting

  • 5 of 5
Seven of us friends stayed in the golden cottage as we called it, but it would be also perfect for a family. We spent lots of time in and around the house, a sprawling single storey property with everything we needed for a homely, well-positioned stay in mid-summer. Peaceful, cute terrace for enjoying the 24-hour light, especially the glow of the evening sun, and we made good use of the hot tub! Great bright communal room, glazed all the way around for more views while playing late night games. Hard to remember to go to bed when the sun never sets...
We cooked lots of food ourselves and found the kitchen very well-equipped, as if you'd kitted it out yourself. Massive fridge and a separate chest freezer in the utility room. Surprise hit was the toastie-maker!
Perfectly located for amazing sights including Gullfoss, Geysir, hot streams of Hveragerði, crater lake Kerio and the historic Thingvellir national park. On the doorstep of the Grimsnes area is unspoiled beauty in every direction, whether you wander across the mossy, wild flower-filled fields that wrap around the cottage, or simply drive around and follow your whims. Further afield, several hours drive east is the ice lagoon, which is just about doable there and back in a day, particularly when there is no sunset to beat. The destination and the journey both more than worth the time, with varied and other-worldly landscapes a given around every corner.
One very minor downside is we found the house a little too warm. The Icelanders seemingly have free access to limitless geothermal underfloor heating and are very comfortable like this, or simply fling open the windows to cool down. But being from England, we are used to more freshness, especially at night, and had to ask for it to be turned down (wasn't as simple as turning a dial on the wall). They were absolutely fine and helpful about this, even if they didn't really understand why we wouldn't want to be lovely and piping hot all the time! Our contact Þórunn was extremely sweet and helpful, and we were able to keep in touch easily by phone and email for any queries. The best choice for supermarkets was in the fairly large town Selfoss, 15 mins or so drive south of the cottage.
After five nights we moved on to Reykjavik for a taste of the city. An absolutely unforgettable trip which left us planning our next visit, almost the minute we got home!
