Beautifully appointed home / spectacular location
Having just returned from a fantastic time in Iceland in this lovely home we can't wait to come back.
We were greeted by the friendly owner Thorsteinn who explained everything we needed to know and gave some great insight into local trips and activities.
The house is extremely comfortable, stylish and beautifully appointed in every way - the attention to detail and premium feel is evident throughout every aspect of the property.
The house sits on a hill with beautiful views all round. The spacious living area is open planned, light, airy and the perfect social environment for families and groups of friends.
A large, tiered deck leads down to the geothermally heated hot tub - a place the family spent much of the time every morning and evening in all weathers - from -4 and snowing to glorious warm spring sunshine. The house also has a brilliant steam room, sound system, TV's, WiFi - everything has been thought through to make the house the perfect environment for families and groups of all ages.
The house is located just one hour from Reykjavik in the heart of the golden circle area - making it the perfect spot for visiting the well known must do attractions and for day trips exploring the dramatic scenery further afield such as the glaciers and Jökulsárlón icebergs. There are great walks all round including a trail up in the hills to the hot springs at Hverageroi nearby. Thingvellir is just 15 minutes north, Selfoss with all local amenities is only 10 mins south. Solhestar horse riding centre is a 10 mins drive. Gulfoss, Geysir, Riverjet and all the rafting and canoeing activities are only 40 mins away.
Grund is not your standard holiday home. If you're looking for a relaxing and luxurious break in home from home with all the facilities to keep everyone happy this is definitely the place to be. We have had such a great time and cannot wait to come back.
Thanks for an absolutely brilliant experience in a fantastic location.
