Overview

South Iceland House Rental Photos and Description

Centrally located, well equipped and with a large hot tub. Two king size beds.

* NOTE: Nonnahús is approved by the Icelandic Tourism board and has all necessary licenses to ensure health and safety. *

This newly renovated house is located less than 90 km (56 mi) from Reykjavik, Iceland's capital.

It was originally built in 1967 and was completely renovated in 2008 to become a first class luxury house for the rental market.

The house is located in the country side and is only 46 km from the famous hot spring Geysir and beautiful Gullfoss waterfall.

The house itself is 126 m² and includes four bedrooms.

It's ideal for up to 10 persons. One bedroom includes double king-size bed, one has king-size bed and two include bunk beds (2 x 90 cm).

The kitchen includes all required equipment, refrigerator, kitchen stove with oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffee machine and radio with CD player. Kitchenware is for total of 12 persons.

The living room has big comfortable leather sofa and LCD television with DVD player, satellite receiver and local television stations.

In front of the house is a large 80 m² terrace with a hot tub (spa).

Centrally located - near the golden circle: The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route in South Iceland, covering about 300 km looping from Reykjavík into central Iceland and back.

The golden circle is in short driving distance from Nonnahús.

The three primary stops on the route are the national park Þingvellir, the waterfall Gullfoss (meaning 'golden falls'), and the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.

Þjórsárdalur Valley: Nonnahús is located near Þjórsárdalur Valley, a valley that includes many interesting places to visit. Þjórsárdalur lies between mount Búrfell alongside the river Þjórsá to the east and mount Skriðufell to the west. The valley has been formed and given unique look by repeated eruptions of the nearby volcano Hekla as well as other volcanoes in the vicinity. Don’t be afraid – Nonnahús is not located on a bed of lava beside any volcano.

Gjáin is a very beautiful location in Þjórsárdalur valley. The river Rauðá runs through this valley with many small waterfalls, ponds and volcanic structures. It’s in about 20 min walking distance from the historical farm Stöng, and can be driven very close to in an off-road vehicle.

The volcano Hekla can be seen from the site.

Some find this place so beautiful they (secretly) have strewn their ashes in the river to be forever be united with monumental nature in this 'paradise on earth'.

Landmannalaugar: The Landmannalaugar area is a popular tourist destination and hiking hub in Iceland's highlands. The area displays a number of unusual geological elements, like the multicoloured rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields. The many mountains in the surrounding area display a wide spectrum of colours including pink, brown, green, yellow, blue, purple, black, and white. Two of the most popular mountains among hikers are Bláhnúkur (meaning 'blue peak') and Brennisteinsalda (meaning 'sulphur wave').

Landmannaluagar is a popular tourist destination. Tourists visit the area from June through late September, after which time the road is closed.

Many hot and cold springs create a bathing warm brook, where people bath throughout the entire year. The banks of the brook are boggy and lushly vegetated and people are kindly asked to use the wooden path across the bog to the brook. It is forbidden to use soap.

Nonnahús is great place to visit Landmannalaugar from.

Free high-speed internet.

We loved the house & the hot tub!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time & loved the house & the hot tub! It was always nice to get back after a day's sightseeing to the house & relax in the evening. It was really well appointed & nicely furnished.

There were four of us staying & the only thing which would have improved our stay further would have been to have had an extra bathroom.

Beautiful house, stunning views and very clean. We were fortunate enough to see the Aurora Borealis after a snow storm while in the hot tub and felt very blessed.

I would recommend this house for anyone looking for quality accommodation in a secluded spot close enough to drive to many of the natural attractions Iceland has to offer.

Thank you for providing us with our very special home from home.

Nonnahús is located in South Iceland, in a perfect location if you wish to travel around the South side of the island. Nonnahús is very near to Þjórsárdalur, one of the most beautiful valleys in Iceland. Nonnahús is also very close to the golden circle (Gullfoss and Geysir).

Golf: If you like playing Golf, we recommend that you visit one of the best golf 18 hole course in Iceland. It’s located at Efra Sel and is called Selsvöllur. It’s only 3 km from village Flúðir, which is only approx. 20 min from Nonnahús.

Right outside Selfoss is a 9 hole golf course called Svarfhólsvöllur (Selfoss golf course).

In approx. 20 min drive from Selfoss is 18 hole golf course called Kidjaberg and is located between river Hvítá and lake Hestvatn.
