Great House, Great Location, Perfect for Family

  • 5 of 5
Very Nice Place. Well furnished and very spacious. Had 4 adults and 3 children stay. We had plenty of room and time with the 2 washrooms. The hot tube and deck are beautiful. Very good service. Great location 20 minuted from Thingvellir and on the Golden Circle. I would recommend to anyone planing to spend time in South Iceland as there many day trips and sights to see with-in an hours drive.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5
5 of us spent a week in this house. Fantastic property and great owners. The house is modern, well equipped and well maintained. We enjoyed the outside hot tub, a must do while waiting for the northern lights at night. The house is warm and it has a nice fire place. The kitchen and leaving area are great to spend time all together. There are a number of attractions near by and a small village to buy groceries. There are also a number of restaurant that serve local food.
We enjoyed every minute of our staying and we will for sure return to this beautiful house again. We found it randomly searching and it exceeded our expectations. At our arrival the owner was there to welcome us and meeting him made the experience even better since he showed us around, explained the rules and gave us suggestions of things to do.
We loved it all.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Property was perfect. Thorsteinn was at the house when we got there and patiently answered all of our many questions. The house was very clean and everything was organized and easy to use. The location was more than perfect. Just far enough away, but not too far. One of our highlights was the drive to the iceberg lagoon. We also thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Blue Lagoon. Thorsteinn recommended we head to the Westmann Islands, but we ran out of time before we needed to head north. We spent a relaxing day at the house, sitting in the steam room, reading, and cooking. The views are incredible. You wont be disappointed if you choose to stay in this lovely home.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what my fiancee and I were expecting. It is the best house in the area! And believe me, I looked at them all. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The floors were heated, the fireplace added a nice touch of ambiance at night. The view out the windows was spectacular; especially when the northern lights made the entire sky red. What a sight to see!!

The sauna, hot tub and dual head shower were fabulous! The location was perfect for day trips around the area. We stopped for groceries in Selfoss on the way home, and we were good to go! If you drink alcohol, check the times that store is open as it is only open a few hours in the afternoon. If I had to complain about anything, I would have to say that directions for the washer/dryer would have been helpful. It took quite a while to figure that out!

We would absolutely recommend this house to anyone and everyone. It is worth every kroner. If you are looking for a cheap place to hang your hat at night, this is not the house for you.

Owner's Response: Dear Gabriel and Christine,

Thank you for your review. It's a great point regarding the instructions for the washer and dryer. We will have them translated.
Hope to see you again some day!

Best wishes,

Fantastic Iceland

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect stay for us on our Iceland trip! The Grund offers great recreation in beautiful, quiet surroundings. The Grund is also located in the middle of the golden circle area, near all the coolest attractions. I don't really think we've could have found a better place to stay. A luxury house with the best amenities!

The customer service of the owner Thorsteinn was excellent; we really have no complaints, not the smallest.
I would highly recommend you to rent this house, you will have a hard time finding any better.

If you're up for some action in Iceland, I would also highly recommend a guided tour with an Icelandic super jeep. If you take a day tour with river crossing etc, you will definitely not regret. You could get picked up in Selfoss, so it suits well with staying at Grund.

The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area close to lake Thingvallavatn, a part of the golden circle (one of the must see places in Iceland). Its closest village Selfoss is appox 15 min driving with all services needed. Excellent hiking all around and only 20 min drive from lake Laugarvatn. Geysir and Gullfoss two of most visited sights are not far. Two good 18 hole golf courses 7 km (Öndverdarnes) and 13 km (Kidjaberg) away.
