A wonderful place in a wonderful country
We enjoyed our stay 100% at Thor's place. The house was clean, the beds were comfy and the hot tub was an added bonus. With four kids, the washer and dryer really came in handy. The location was perfect for us. We wanted to me in the middle of all activities, and this location was convenient to everything we wanted to see. I think the longest we drove to get to site was maybe 1.5 hours. We rented a car, and it was very was easy to drive around Iceland. Thor (and his family) have everything you need in the house...including great coffee! We sat outside in the hot tub each night hoping to see the Northern Lights! Our kids liked the house so much they wanted to stay there instead of sightseeing! We used the grill more than once too! We would for sure stay again, and thank you Thor and family for such a wonderful time in your beautiful country.
Amazing gem in a great location
We spent a little over a week at this property for a family vacation - 2 adults and 2 older children. The house itself is fantastic, and was immaculate when we arrived. The property owner, Thor, met us at the property when we arrived to show us around and explain how everything worked, and was a pleasure to deal with throughout our trip. The house has a nice open and airy design, and has all the comforts of a great place to stay, from a great coffee maker to a fantastic hot tub with plenty of hot water. The washer/dryer were also great. The location was fantastic in that it was easy to get to so many sights and attractions with a very short drive. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to spend time in Southern Iceland.
Amazing location, owner, and house!
Our family (2 adults 3 kids) had an amazing time at Thor's place. The house is roomy, clean and offers all amenities that you could want in a location that can't be beat.
The location by the crater offers a central point to hit all the southern Iceland destinations and our week at the house allowed us to see all the main and many "hidden" attractions.
Could not have asked for a better place to stay and highly recommend for anyone who wants to see a beautiful part of Iceland and stay out of the tourists trap of Rekyavik!
We absolutely loved our stay at Thor's property. There were 3 adults and 1 young child, and we had plenty of space. The property itself is beautiful! Very clean and comfortable. The views and surroundings are spectacular! The location is nice and close to the Golden Circle and South Coast, but with relatively easy access to Reykjavik (about an hour away). The hot tub is a nice perk! There are some quirks with the hot tub and appliances, and when Thor walked us through how to run everything, we were all sleep deprived from travel, so I would just encourage future guests to listen carefully and make sure you understand 100% how to operate all appliances/hot tub :) Thor was very responsive to our questions and helped us work out those quirks quickly. He was a very nice host and we thoroughly enjoyed staying at his cottage. We would recommend it to just about anyone looking to stay outside Reykjavik and closer to nature!
Fantastic cottage in a beautiful setting
We had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at Thor’s beautiful cottage during the Easter school holidays. Thor was a great host and made us feel very welcome.
The cottage was a perfect base for our days spent exploring Iceland . The hot tub was used every evening and was a perfect place to relax and watch the stars.
We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during our stay - something really special.
Don’t think twice about booking this cottage - you won’t regret it
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.
Cozy country cottage, surrounded by nature, charming and peaceful cottage.
It has a great view of the countryside the mountain Ingólfsfjall and many more beautiful places. The cottage is in a walking distance from Kerið, a volcanic crater with a lake in the bottom.
The cottage is on short distance of the Golden circle travel route. The national park Þingvellir is only 20 min away which is famous for its beauty and the first parliament in 930. Laugarvatn is only 20 min drive, were you can enjoy a spa and sauna, the sauna is natural and build over a hot water crater. Geysir is 30 min away, and it is famous for its geothermal area. Gullfoss is a beautiful waterfall located only 40 min from the cottage. Skálholt is close by (18 min drive), it was, through eight centuries, one of the most important places in Iceland it was the cultural and political centre in Iceland. There are couple of swimming pools with jacuzzi, sauna and water slides located in the area. Closest is in Minni-Borg( 5 min), then there are pools in Selfoss and Laugarvatn. Reykjavík Central is in 50 min driving distance.
