South Iceland House Rental Photos and Description
Cozy and peaceful cottage with beautiful views! NORTHERN LIGHTS in winter!

(If your dates are already booked please check out our new and third cottage Sel: listing nr. 2052798, http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p2052798 or http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p2052798)

We offer 2 separate cottages for rent: they each stand peacefully by themselves and afford great views onto volcano Hekla, the mountains and the surrounding pastures. Cottages 'Nordurnes' (for 2-4 persons) and 'Bjalli' (for up to 4 persons) are well equipped, cosy and in a scenic location on our 130 Hectare. On our land we also have horses, an outbuilding and our home, all generously spaced out for privacy and views.

Ideal location for daytrips to all the sights in the South of Iceland! Detailed information and descriptions are in the cottages for you. We gladly assist you with any queries you have!

Some of the day trips: Golden Circle, Geysir, Gullfoss and Thingvellir; Skogar waterfall and museum, bird cliffs near Vik (black beach) and Dyrholaey. Or take the ferry to the Westman Islands! Blue Lagoon and scenic drive along coast road; Reykjavik in 80km. In summer you can take the highland bus or Hekla taxi to Landmannalaugar and its hot springs in the highlands, or drive to the bottom of Hekla and hike to the top!

The nearest pool is 7km away. Insider tip: a very rustic old geothermal pool in the middle of nowhere: Seljavallalaug gamla, info in the cottages!

A very good riding stable is nearby (7 km), catering for beginners and experienced riders alike, see here for more information: www.herridarholl.is

Bird watching: From May until the end of July you can watch up to 20 bird species around the house and on our 130 hectares. Feel free to roam around! There are paths on our 130 hectare and you are welcome to explore and greet the horses.

In winter you can see NORTHERN LIGHTS!

Details for Nordurnes Studio, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

Through the separate entrance room you enter the one room cottage and take in the views into the landscape and onto volcano Hekla. The bright room has a double door onto the deck and large windows. The kitchenette functiones well and you can enjoy the view onto Hekla from the dining table. The seperate bathroom has a shower and WC. Up the 'chicken ladder' and you reach the open sleeping loft with 2 low beds (we can add 1 mattress if you wish): it is cozy here and in wintertime you can look straight out into the night sky and - with a little luck!- enjoy the NORTHERN LIGHTS! The sofa downstairs pulls out into a bed (140cm wide). Around the house are open countryside and horse pastures. You have your own piece of Iceland here! (The other cottage Bjalli is 700m away and cannot be seen from here.) Information on day trips provided!

Originally german, I have lived here in Iceland since 2000 with my icelandic husband, icelandic dog, chickens and horses! We love our home and we enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences of Iceland and our area with you. Originally I came here because of horse riding and today I feel at least as icelandic as anything else! I am looking forward to welcoming you in the country I chose to be my home!

Maja Siska purchased this house in 2005

Nordurnes and Bjalli are each situated on their own in spectacular landscape: a cosy retreat with views onto horse pastures and mountains, volcanos and glaciers. And all that in an ideal location for trip to the sights of south Iceland, into the highlands and out for riding tours in summer… and the hour drive to Reykjavik ( 80km) over the pass Hellisheidi is always a scenic experience.

The atmosphere in Nordurnes and Bjalli is very peaceful and you are in touch with nature and the surrounding landscape. The idyllic setting with its views onto volcano Hekla and the mountains keeps surprising you! The next pool and the next riding stable is only 7km away.

Best view in Iceland

When we were planning our trip to Iceland we didn´t think about renting a small house. But when we saw Nordurnes we fell in love with it, so we had to come here! The best part of our trip took place here! You have found a wonderful place... The best view we have had in Iceland! We are very glad to have met you and hope to see you again!

Ein schön eingerichtetes Haus wo man sich rundum wohl fühlt! Sehr erholsam und man kann man schöne Tagesausfluege machen. DIe Gefahr besteht, dass man gar nicht mehr nach Hause möchte!
