About Kristín

I was born in Reykjavík and have always live in the South Iceland. The house has been the vacation home for the family since we bought the land and built the house.

Kristín purchased this house in 2007

Why Kristín chose Hveragerði

H40-house offers great recreation in beautiful, quiet surroundings. The location is perfect for multiple adventures. It is located in the middle of the golden circle area, near many coolest attractions. The Hot tub is a perfect way to relax, watch the sun set, the stars or northern lights.

What makes this house unique

The landscape is stunning where the house is located in the rural part of south Iceland. If you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable break in home with all the facilities this is definitely the place to be.

Lovely and convienent

  • 5 of 5

This place is excellent - had everything we needed for our stay in Iceland. Easily accessible from Selfoss (10-15 min drive) for groceries, supplies, etc. As well as VERY easy drive to many places in the Golden Circle. Excellent central location. Hot tub was fantastic to relax in after a day of touring about! Super clean, quiet and relaxing! We are planning to return in the summer some time. Recommended!!

Property was everything we needed for our visit to South Iceland Coast

  • 5 of 5

Overall this property is great for a family visiting the South Coast of Iceland as it is located close to the Golden Circle and other major attractions. The home is well maintained and very clean with an open floor plan that was very comfortable for our family of four adults. After long days of driving, hiking and exploring there was the added benefit of returning to the hot tub for a bit of relaxation. The property is in a quiet gated access community of a handful of properties which we really enjoyed as well.

Lovely modern home in the country

  • 5 of 5

Lovely country home about 15 minutes from Selfoss. Modern style with very nice heated floors. Hot tub. Very peaceful surroundings. You will need a car to get to this property. Be sure to ask about the wifi password as it's not on the instruction sheet. Easy access to Golden Circle, Fontana Spa and Lake Pingvallvatn. Owners speak English. Very nice place to rest and enjoy Iceland.

Beautiful, clean and the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfectly located to see everything in the golden circle and along the south coast of Iceland as well as Thingvellir and other sites. We could not have chosen better! The cottage is very clean and roomy and comfortable. The hot tub is a must!

A lovely cozy home-from-home

  • 5 of 5

A great base from which to explore the Golden Circle. We were lucky to experience sunshine and snow in this comfortable and picturesque home. The property was clean, well maintained and just as we expected to find it. We loved coming back to it each day. Kristin was great and made our stay trouble free. We would definitely recommend the property to friends and family.

H40 / Áshamar house is located only one hour from the capital Reykjavík and in the heart of the Golden Circle area. Þingvellir / Thingvellir the National Park is only 15 minutes by car. The famous Geysir and Gullfoss are about an hour drive.

There are great walking trails all around, including the path in the hills of Hveragerði, where you can have a bath in the warm water is 20 minutes drive.

The Mountain Búrfell is a nice walk and on the top is a lake where you can go fishing trout. Also you can go trout fishing in the nearest lakes, Villingavatn and Thingvallavatn. In the river Ölfusá and Sog you can go salmon fishing.

The location of the house is the perfect place to visit well known attractions and make day tours. Exploring the dramatic landscape all around, such as the waterfalls, Reykjafoss in Hveragerði, Skógarfoss and Seljalandsfoss. Glaciers like the volcano Eyjafjallajökull is an hour drive. Further are Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull.

Jökulsárlón, where you can go sailing around the icebergs in a boat.

Selfoss is the nearest town with all with all the grocery stores needed, only 10 minutes away. The small villages Stokseyri and Eyrabakki are worth visiting. If you want to have a nice meal in restaurants there are few nearby. Our favorites are the resturant Varmá in Hveragerði, Humarhúsið in Stokkseyri and Rauða húsið in Eyrabakki. Many other nice attractions like Riding centers e.g. Sólhestar 10 minutes and Eldhestar 20 minutes drive.

River rafting and canoeing activities are only 40 minutes away. There are hot swimming pools all around. Nearest one is at Borg and Laugaskarð in Hveragerði is with excellent facilities, including hot pots, whirlpool pot and a natural steam bath.
