Guestbook comments from the owner

"TOTALLY MAGIC PLACE IN THE MIDDLE OF BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE"



I stayed in this totally "wow" place during the summer of 2012. It is a beautiful property in the Icelandic country side with great views of mountains from all windows and glass doors. The house is new, extremely well equipped and clean. It is also well heated with hot water from the ground which is important in Iceland because it can be cold up there! It does not have a swimming pool (nobody has) but it has a "hot tub" (few houses do) which is like a big jacuzzi built into the deck which is heated with hot water from the ground. I slid into this "hot tub" or "hot pot" as I think it is called locally every day rain or shine and I can highly recommend it.

The area is wonderful with easy drive to many famous and historical sites like Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingveillir. There is also a small town with a well stocked supermarket not too far away.

It was truly a magical place so a week simply flew by. The only minus was my own poor planning not booking for at least two weeks.

I would certainly recommend this place.

The owners were also very welcoming and helpful.

Peaceful house in wondeful Iceland

  • 4 of 5

My wife and myself had a great time in the house. It is clean, well maintained and is peacefully located on 90 minutes from Reykjavik. Thingvellir , Geysir and Sulfoss are very close to the house. We would recommend the house to everyone without hesitation. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

Thank you.

Idyllic peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This summer house was really well equipped and had the most wonderful location. We were far enough away from it all to have total peace and close enough to be able get to restaurants and shops when we needed. All the big sights on the golden circle were within easy reach. Reykavik and the Blue Lagoon a couple of hours drive.

The wifi was great for keeping track of the activity at Bárðarbunga and the hot pot was well used by the whole family throughout our stay. We can’t wait to come back!

Kjartan could not have been more welcoming. Thank you.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised and in excellent condition. While I am not a "hot tub person", the geothermal heated one at this house in Iceland is quite enjoyable. All bed rooms have room darkening shades that really help block the 3 AM full Iceland sun...

When traveling to the property for the 1st time, be sure to go a short way down the unpaved road...

The location is Ideal for exploring south Iceland including Pingvellir, Gullfoss & Vik areas. I was able to get all the way to the east end of the country with one night in a hotel.

The town of Selfoss is very close and has all the amenities. I recommend the Kaffi Krús restaurant including eat in (trout is excellent), take out pizza on your way back to the house is great for those long days of sight seeing.

Wonderful stay in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this beautiful home near Selfoss for 9 days and loved it! Everything was as promised in the listing. The home is comfortable, spacious and very clean. We had more than enough room and everything we needed - coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and a fully supplied kitchen. Wifi was excellent and fast. The "hot pot" was clean and the perfect temperature and constantly filled with natural hot spring water. The house is one of several grouped together on a farm. We enjoyed our neighbors of beautiful Icelandic horses, birds and sheep. It was peaceful but still convenient to the Ring Road, town, groceries, restaurants and the Selfoss pool. We took day trips to Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir, Vestmannaeyjar Islands, the Blue Lagoon and Vik. This was a perfect home base for our explorations of the amazing sights of south Iceland.

Customer service was excellent. The owners met us on arrival and reviewed the amenities within the house for us. They were always available by email or phone to answer questions and give recommendations on things to do. They have just started renting their summer home and we were only the second family to stay there - we highly recommend it and would stay there again.
