The Cabin was built 2009 and is perfect for all year around stay!
My name is Sandra and me and my husband own the cabin at Víðbrekka. We have 3.children from 2-8.years old.
When we bought the cabin it had been under construction but nothing had been done for some time. So when we got the cabin it was nothing in it but dirt and walls. So i can say candidly that the cabin is our work . We built it from inside so you can get to know us a littel when you stay there ;)
Sandra purchased this cabin in 2009
We love to stay at our lovely cabin as our family and friends! This is where we go to relax and enjoy.
The view is wonderful any time of the year!
It´s a perfect place to be at in the south because it´s not far from Reykjavík, close to all service and fun things to do or see is all around the cabin.
We had a fantastic week at this lovely summer house not far from Selfoss.
The cabin was excellent with a homely feel and good amenities. The setting is ideal in a quiet side road with great views from the large terrace at the front of the property. This looks out over the valley from which we could watch the local wildlife.
Everything in the house was clean and tidy and as described in the details with comfy beds and sofas, plus an excellent kitchen.
Sandra the owner was great, she answered all our questions leading up to our visit, and while we were there, she could not have been more helpful.
The location is central to the main attractions in the South of Iceland, and only about 15 min drive from Selfoss with its shops and services, and the junction with Route 1, the main road around the island.
There are excellent fish restaurants about 25 minutes away at Eyrarbakki and Stokkseyri on the coast, which we would highly recommend. In fact we ate out most of the time and had good food wherever we went. The fish and local lamb were the highlights.
I would recommend this cabin to anybody looking for a comfortable house central location. We had a great time and are looking forward to our next visit.

The property was fantastic, perfectly situated for our visit to Iceland. Are party was made up of 6 adults a 17, 13, 11 and 3 year olds. We had hired two cars from Thrifty ( best overseas car hire I have ever used and will only use them again ) we drove 2500 km while in Iceland and all of us had the most amazing time. The Westermann islands, beautiful, the pool was great as are all the swimming a pools in Iceland, also a gem of a restaurant called Gott, food and staff brilliant.
Blue lagoon just wow
Whale watching and sea fishing trips again well worth doing with very friendly staff.
Geyser was great to watch and a lovely walk.
The oldest parliament and the tectonic plates pulling apart was just totally different, the lovely walks together as a group so enjoyable.
Vik and the columns again beautiful and amazing.
The glacier lagoon was breath taking and to sit in out t-shirts next to it having a picnic was perfect.
And the waterfalls everywhere and all worth stopping and looking at, the power of nature....stunning
We all loved Iceland and the next morning after arriving back in the uk, we were already looking at booking to go again, the 22 hours of daylight was very strange so next time we are going in the winter for darkness and northern lights.
Thank you to Sandra for the fabulous property and making it so easy. I would defiantly say that Iceland has the wow factor and would recommend it as a place to go. Thank you Iceland I have had a truly amazing 40th birthday and also got engaged while in here, I will be back!!
The cabin is spacious and beautifully decorated. Sandra the owner met us when we arrived in Reykjavik and was very helpful and friendly. She gave us a warm welcome and lots of advice to help us see as much as we could, then she was at the end of the phone with what ever we needed to know during our stay. Iceland is an amazing country and this cabin is located close to many must-see's! The volcano crater at Kerid (just up the road) as are the breathtakingly beautiful Pingvellir/Thingvellir lake and national park...take a careful (as some gravel roads) drive around the lake it is stunning, Selfoss town with all amenities, historic beach towns with grass roofed houses and museums, lava flows, geothermal areas, even Gulfoss and Geysir are not too far away. Do not forget to look out for the Elves rocks as well just down the road...look for the 'doors' on the large boulders on the road sides!! Further afield but well worth the long drives are Vik with it's fabulous beach with basalt formations, cave, arch and stacks complete for us with a pod of whales just off the beach spouting water!! Also see the infamous E15 volcano, (volcanoes EVERYWHERE though), lava flows, waterfalls and the Vatnajokull glacier. The Reykjanes Peninsular is lovely with much to see too, we did this after a trip into Reykjavik, wonderful museums and harbor. The Icelandic people are lovely and speak very good English. The local lamb and fish are amazing (alcohol is very expensive.)We even saw the Northern Lights on 5 (!!) evenings from the cabin the first one was truly spectacular with 'rainbow waterfalls' and a 'crown'. The lack of light pollution where the cabin is located and the huge three sided deck really help with the lights 'spotting', the cabin is remote but only about 20 mins to Selfoss and all you could need. One needs a car but not a small one because of some of the roads and the quickly changing conditions! We were very lucky with the weather getting sun on all but the last days then we had snow storms! We did have VERY strong winds/gales everyday which dramatically lowers the temperature so wrap up warm! We loved the hot tub after long cold wind swept days out. The only things we would have wished for was a lock on the bathroom door (as had some embarrassing moments!!....as only one private shower and one loo) and a hand rail for the steep staircase for us older/clumsier ones!!Thank you so much Sandra for memories we will treasure. and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Really great cabin! We stayed here during christmas and had just a wonderful time! The cabin looks just amazing and exactly like the pictures. The view was just amazing, one night we could even see the Northern Light from the living room! We really enjoyed our holiday here, and it was just great to come home after a long cold day and jump into the hot tub! The owner, Sandra, was really friendly and helped us with all our questions and we could always contact here if we had any more questions. Our holiday here was just perfect! We really hope to come back to this cabin some day!
I don't leave reviews very often, but I was so impressed and enjoyed it so much that I have to leave a review!
We were in communication with Sandra, the owner, who was super helpful and really good at giving speedy responses before we arrived, (I went with my baby, so I had lots of annoying questions! All of which Sandra helped me with very generously)
When we arrived in Iceland we met Sandra and she answered all our questions about the house as well as giving us lots of general touristy advice! She left us to go to the house stressing; "now enjoy it! You're on holiday, just relax and treat it as your home!" which really put us at ease :)
The house is great, warm (!), beautifully designed, homely, and the hot tub was amazing! We had everything we could possibly have needed there, with brilliant views across the valley. There is even a trampoline for you to enjoy the views on the move!
A stress-free trip enjoyed with 7 of my closest friends, that was very well valued... as I said...
totally recommend it!
Beautiful cottage with an amazing view. This is the ideal place to stay when visiting the SW of Iceland, with a lot of a attractions nearby. The owner Sandra was very great and a big help for us, always at our service when we wanted to ask something. So this was a perfect stay for us.
Our lovely Cabin is perfectly located as a starting point for all the main attractions and sightseeing in South of Iceland. Þingvellir, Golden Circle and Kerið to name a few are only a few min. away.
Golf, Horse-riding, fishing, orgnic farm and warm swimmingpool with a slide are in the area. The town Selfoss is only a 10-15min drive. There you can find all the nessasery service. Behind the Cabin is mountain Búrfell. It has a wonderful view and is fun to go hiking and after the day just relax in the hot tub.
