Amazing house, best vacation we've ever had!

Amazing house, best vacation we've ever had!

This summer my husband and I spent our best vacation ever (and we travel a lot) in Iceland, at a beautiful house, Ferienhaus Stekkholt, that we rented through Sven Strumann of German company Kria Tours. For this trip, to celebrate our tenth anniversary, we did extensive research into various vacation home rentals around Iceland, and we loved Stekkholt right away, we knew we had to rent it (before anyone else booked it!!). We couldn't have made a better choice, the house is gorgeous, brand new, modern, equipped above and beyond what you need, and in the perfect location. Some specifics:

Location - Near Selfoss (on Google maps as Arborg), about 45 minutes from Reykjavik, and less than ten minutes to the coast. From here you are close to the "Golden Circle", Thingvellir National Park with the Althing, the famous Gullfoss waterfalls, the Kerith crater, Landmannalaugar, and Thorsmork (rent an SUV for the last two, it's required. We just got an SUV for two days, and a regular car for the rest of the time). The house has two neighbors, but we never saw any, and everywhere in front and behind the house was just open space, beautiful nature. There are horses the live next door that you can pet every day, and a beautiful Icelandic bird guided us up and down the driveway, flying ahead of our car, every time we left or returned.

The house itself - Brand new. Literally, brand new. Stekkholt looked like we were the first renters (July 2013). Top of the line, eco-friendly yet efficient, appliances, thoroughly stocked kitchen, huge 3D TV with blu-ray player, an enormous hot tub that you can fill and drain at the push of a button (!!), two large bathrooms, a huge amount of closet space in the master bedroom (we didn't use the other three bedrooms because it was the two of us), nice interior design, lots and lots of large windows with spectacular views of the landscape, and comfortable leather couches. The beds were very comfortable, with fluffy down blankets and pillows. Note that you are required to take off your shoes in the house, so bring some slippers or something. We're not huge fans of taking off shoes indoors, but after seeing all the mud we tracked into the hallway from hiking, we were glad we kept the house nice and clean, shoe-free.

We wrote a much longer review, but it doesn't fit here. It's on the Stekkholt Facebook page though if you'd like to read it! We give Ferienhaus Stekkholt our highest recommendation, this was our favorite vacation ever!

Five star accommodation

Every thing about this accommodation was perfect, including the location with its great views, and Sven is a wonderful host.

The house itself is fantastic, just like the pictures, and is finished to an extremely high standard and fitted out with top quality appliances, utensils and furniture. The beds are comfortable and plenty of towels and nice bed linen supplied. As a bonus, there is a large hot tub on the patio that is excellent for relaxing after a hard day exploring the sights. If this were a hotel it would certainly deserve a five star rating.

Sven made everything about our holiday incredibly easy by responding to all correspondence about the let promptly and sending simple to follow instructions on how to get to the house. Once we arrived Sven was good enough to take the time to offer lots of personal advice and local knowledge about the house, local amenities and tourist attractions and he has also put together a very comprehensive and easy to understand manual about how all the the appliances, TV, hot tub, heating etc. work. I just wish I could be so well organised!

The location is quiet, being about half a kilometre from the road, but is still conveniently close to the local supermarkets in and around Selfoss. It is also very conveniently placed for joining the main route 1, which makes it an ideal base for exploring southern Iceland.

Overall I can not thank Sven enough for allowing us the pleasure of the use of his beautiful home and for being such a friendly and helpful host.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review.
We hope that we welcome you again as our guests.
