Comfortable and Convenient
We are so happy we rented Thor's place. We were travelling with four children ages 3-12 and the house had plenty of room for us and allowed us to save money by cooking meals at home. Everyone loved the hot tub. It's location was great: near enough to Selfoss for convenience, but also not a long drive to Thingvellir National Park, Geysir and so much more.
Amazing cottage in prime location
We looked all over VRBO for the right lodging for our recent trip to Iceland, and I am so thrilled we stumbled upon Thor's cottage! The location was ideal for us. Even though we were close to Selfoss and all the amenities of the town, as well as the various surrounding tourist destinations, the cottage was far enough away to feel peaceful and remote. We drove past horses and sheep each day, and the view of the stars and northern lights from the deck was incredible, to say the least. The hot tub was so easy to use, and it provided great comfort and relaxation on the cold evenings as we viewed the sky. Thor's cottage was immaculate and well-appointed, and he and his wife were such gracious hosts. We tried all of their restaurant recommendations and were extremely happy with all of them.
Thank you to the Thorssons for making our mother's 75th birthday trip such a spectacular adventure! I can honestly say your cottage made our trip.
Wonderful Cottage in a Perfect Location for Exploring Iceland!
This home exceeded our expectations. It is a very comfortable, clean cottage in a great location and served as the perfect home base for our Icelandic Adventures. My family spent our days driving around exploring the amazing sites and we enjoyed coming home to relax in the hot tub in the evenings. We were even lucky enough to see the Northern Lights one night (in early September)!
Thor is a gracious host and was very responsive to all of my requests prior to arrival and during our stay. He was also very flexible with our arrival and departure times. Thank you, Thor, for your kind hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home with us. I recommend this cottage without hesitation and would gladly stay here again!
It was a great at hawe your family and I really hope at you will stay a gain At our cottage if you wished Iceland again
Best regards from our family Thor.
Super cozy, great for young family, easy driving for day trips to really experience Iceland
I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to be centrally based with easy couple hour drive in any direction to really experience what Iceland has to offer. Thor really was an excellent host. Even with a 24hr delay on our flight arrival, Thor was flexible and made check-in a breeze. The house was very cozy, simple and a great place to come back to after our daily adventures. The hot tub was perfect to relax in each evening. We had young kids, 7/9 and they enjoyed it. Thanks Thor for helping us make a very memorable family vacation.
Perfect house for 6 in an incredible location
Great house with everything you would need for a short or longer stay. Very comfortable and modern. Incredible location right in the heart of the best of Iceland in the Southeast. Easy day trips to last at least a week. Great hot tub. We are ready to come back in the winter to see the northern lights next time!
Wonderful cottage near Selfoss!
Our family of 4 truly enjoyed every minute in Thor's cottage. The cottage is just across route 35 and the Kerid crater lake, 15 minutes to Geysir, 30 minutes to Gullfoss, 20 minutes to the hot River near Hvergardi, and just minutes from Selfoss. In short, this is an ideal location for viewing all the wonders of SE Iceland. The cottage is modern, well equipped, very comfortable with lots of glass and a connection to nature feel. The outside grill (Icelandic lamb and seafood are abundant and high quality) and large hot tub were a special treat we looked forward too in the evening. The cottage, its location, and the owner Thor exceeded our expectations. Staying at this cottage added a lot to our trip in terms of enjoyment and relaxation. Thanks Thor for the opportunity to share your beautiful cottage and country with us.
