Why Björn Ragnar Lárusson chose Mosfellsbær

We have loved this area, and in 2009 my father bought this piece of land and build a nice house on it. Privacy and the view is the the biggest asset plus sitting in the hot pot in the evening after a long day of working or traveling.

What makes this cottage unique

Rather close to Reykjavik area and to major attraction in south west Iceland.

A Wonderful Comfortable Getaway in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent 4 nights at this comfortable house. It was very private & quiet & had the most beautiful views from all the rooms!

We loved watching the sheep roam around the area & picking blueberries in the field beside the house!

We especially enjoyed watching the Northern Lights each night from the upstairs sunroom!

It was close enough to stores& restaurants, but far enough away for privacy!

The hot tub gave us the relaxation we needed each night after our full days of exploring & hiking!

I highly reccommend this rental & I will surely stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to Iceland in the near future!

Bjorn was extremely helpful & patient with us as 1st time travelers to Icelend! Thank you!

Quiet, secluded, comfortable, and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place! Everything was comfortable and in order, our stay here was wonderful! Secluded and quiet, but not too remote, lots of fun things to see and do within short drives. The view was spectacular! Hot tub was great fun, we spent an hour soaking and watching a very dynamic Northern Lights display our first night there, amazing! The Holiday House was great, we loved it. Thanks!

very lovely, remote property.

  • 5 of 5

The Holiday House is lovely. It is a place to completely unwind. Kitchen well stocked.

Comfortably furnished. Bring extra towels as there are just enough for each person renting.

A beautiful fireplace warms the main room very efficiently. The Holiday House was a perfect

way to end a 10 day sojourn in what is a beautiful country, Iceland.

Thank you Bjorn! We may see you again.

Great spot with unique geology

  • 5 of 5

Bjorn's house is beautiful and comfortable. The location is very private, yet only 15 minutes away from the heart of the Thingvellir National Park. The geology is wonderful, and the house sits, literally, squarely in the rift between the European and North American plates. Happily, we had anticipated that there would be few (if any) convenient restaurants, and had stopped in Selfoss to pick up food/drink. Other visitors would be similarly well advised to bring provisions, and enjoy their time in this lovely spot. One thing that would be helpful is a "house book" with directions for appliances, for closing the house on leaving, etc.
