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.

FABULOUS CABIN WITH AMAZING VIEWS!

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!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! It was so nice to meet you all and i hope to see you again.You know where to find me "when" you come back to Iceland and just if there is anything you need from Iceland ;)
Bestu kveðjur, Sandra and family

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!

The house was as nice as the description in "HomeAway" said.
Best location to see the most importants and beautiful things in Iceland, well provided with all kind of kitchen, bedrooms and livingroom amenities, perfectly clean and well maintained. The views were just amaizing.

The owner is welcoming and so nice. We arrived late at night and she received as with coffee, yougourts, cereals and so warm welcome. She was ready to help always with what We needed and she provided us with all kind of information.

I recomend this house to all who wants the best place to stay in Iceland.

This cabin has everything we wished for! We stayed there for a week and we absolutely loved it. We didn´t want to leave...
Sandra, the owner, was very welcoming and informed us of everything we needed to know. She also recommended things for us to do and see and gave us directions.
After spending the whole day outside, seeing the Golden Circle and walking a lot, it was so nice to come to the cabin and go to the hot tub. The nature there is so beautiful and the view is fantastic.

I definitely recommend this cabin. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you!
