The house is 200 m2 (2153 sqft) with an open family/ kitchen area. It features 4 spacious rooms (sleeps 10 easily) and 3 bathrooms.

The spacious deck is wonderful for outdoor enjoyment, as well as the property itself, which is 11400 m2 (123,000 sqft) or (2.82 acres).

Located 45 km from Reykjavik, Hveragerði may be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field. Throughout the year, pillars of steam may be seen rising up out of the town – and in summer the town is truly a green community, abounding in trees. A green revolution is taking place as areas of woodland in and around Hveragerði expand, with the locals working together in order to further develop their blossoming town.

Very comfortable and a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary and chose this house for the vacation. We loved being by the river and the walks around the house were great. The village is lovely with different things to see. The house itself was great. It was warm, had a very well equipped kitchen with a cupboard of herbs and spices for cooking and another with a variety of ingredients which we really appreciated as we cooked a lot. Lots of hot water in excellent showers, comfortable beds and chairs, lots of books, and a fantastic view. The location was great for the golden circle and for going along the south coast. The owner was very helpful with any questions and responded immediately when we had trouble working out the heating. I would definitely recommend it. We had a great time and would liked to have stayed longer.

Excellent location within the golden circle

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful location in Hveragerdi. Enough space for 4 adults and 4 teenager, particularly the large living room with open and well equipped Kitchen. Makes it easy to spend time inside if the weather is uncomfortable. Close to public pool and shops, restaurant etc. Perfect starting point to visit all the sights within the golden circle. The exchange with the ownership was uncomplicated and worked well. Highly recommended!

A fantastic Family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Approached the house with excitement and it was just beautiful. The scenery from the house and the surroundings were lovely. The rooms were done up well and with taste. We felt home to home immediately. Cannot fault anything. there was a lot of information for local visits, well equipped kitchen (well impressed!) and games/books you name it. After a lousy previous experience with VRBO house this place has really restored our faith back! Highly recommend this place...

Excellent family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kristin for a wonderful week-long vacation at your lovely home in Hvergerdi. The setting was perfect. It was in a great central location to see all the best sites of southern Iceland. We used our rental cars to take day trips from there and it worked out perfectly for our family of ten. We had many amazing experiences while in Iceland and would recommend your home as an ideal spot for a small group or family with children.

Fantastic base for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This four-bedroom home in Hveragerdi was the perfect base for our week-long visit to Iceland. My wife and I along with our three adult children and their partners (total of 4 couples) found it easy to get around the country in our rented van while returning each night. The home is warm, bright, and impeccably clean. The beds are comfortable and all the amenities are up to date, including appliances, washer & dryer, showers, bedding, towels, kitchen supplies, etc. On some evenings, we shopped in the local grocery story or in nearby Selfoss and cooked at home. There's a large, comfortable living/dining area in the home that provided space for all of us to be together, and the four bedrooms allowed space for privacy as well. Although we mainly used Hveragerdi as a base, there's actually a lot to do right in this area -- most memorably a hike to a "hot river" where the heat of a thermal spring mixes with the cool of a glacier spring to make a river that is perpetually the temperature of a hot tub. There's also a public pool with two hot tubs and a steam room about 5 minutes walk from home! There are several places to eat but we would especially recommend a local restaurant called Varma which is a 15-minute walk from home (reservations advised). Also, Kristin, the owner of the home, was extremely attentive and kind and answered any questions we had. In short, we loved this rental home because of its quality, location, and hosts. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
