5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sauna, hot tub, extra guesthouse, mountain views,
Born and raised in beutiful Iceland with strong ties to the country. Mother of three and large extended family. We have lived in the UK sine 2006 but spend all our summers in our house in Iceland or travelling around Iceland, hiking, fishing, horse riding, golfing and all we enjoy the most at this magical place in the North Atlantic.
Gudrun purchased this House in 2009
Why Gudrun chose Selfoss
We wanted to have a home in Iceland where we could spend time with our children but have space to entertain family and friends. The location is in a beautiful rural setting but still within reasonable reach from Reykjavik, services, friends etc. This part of Iceland is also known as one of the best weather location ... although not many people go to Iceland for the weather ... which is thankfully compensated by the extra ordinary natural beauty of the island.
What makes this House unique
The view from the living room and off the veranda are breathtaking in all seasons. Turning off all the lights in the winter will cancel out any light pollution and the northern lights can be spectacular.

We only rent our home to responsible families whom we trust to take care of our home in Iceland as it was their own.
Please leave the house as you find it, other than we will of course arrange for cleaning of beds and towels.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Just wish it had an extra full bath/half bath.
Nice property in a nice and quiet location. Only annoyance was the small flies that were getting into the house through window sills even though they were locked. Other than that the property met the expectations of the listed description. Enjoyed the stay.
Great location for exploring the south of Iceland
This was a great place for our group of 9 to stay. We had plenty of space to enjoy eating, sleeping, or just hanging out in comfort, with easy access to sight-seeing in the south of Iceland. We enjoyed a lovely mountain climb within walking distance as well as use of the hot tub and sauna. The kitchen was well-equipped. One feature did not prove to be as advertised--there is no wireless internet provided on the property. You have to use your mobile phone to find a hot spot. If you are counting on free internet access, you will need to go in town.
Beautiful quiet location
Highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay towards the south or just in the countryside in Iceland. Great location, about 45 min from the city and close to the south side of the Golden Circle. Very peaceful and beautiful home.
Excluding location and the cabin was perfect for our group of nine.
Gudrun and Olaf were extremely helpful and friendly and the cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Easy access to the Golden circle and other attractions. I highly recommend it!
Perfect vacation home for our family vacation
What a great place to stay while visiting South/Southwest Iceland. The home was everything we were looking for, and more. The rooms were generous in size, spacious common areas and all the conveniences of home. The location was perfect for what our family was planning to see. The owners were more than accommodating. All of our emails were responded to immediately. We were met at the airport (at 7AM) and given keys to the house. Directions to the house and instructions on how to gain access to the gated community were very clear. Hulda had even made sure there was bread and milk waiting for us! I would highly recommend staying at this home when vacationing in South Iceland! Thank you Gummi, Gudrun & Hulda for opening your home for us to use. Many wonderful memories were made there... Including a brief view of the Northern lights behind the house!
Comfortable holiday home in a lovely location
We had a great holiday in Iceland and really enjoyed our stay. There were 11 of us and we had plenty of room and really enjoyed the hot tub! Had the bonus of seeing the northern lights twice from the house!
Within the scenic 'golden circle' just a few minutes from Lake Thingvellir, 30 minutes to Gullfoss and Geysir. Excellent location for the South of Iceland.
